Wedding Videography: Choosing the Best Video Camera

I’m an expert in videography and work for Hawaiian Shirt Photography who specialise in the natural documentation of your wedding day. (Find out more: Wedding Videography Surrey). This means that I know a lot about video and video cameras. So I’ve pulled together this short guide that enables you to know what to look for in a good video camera. Whether you want to shoot home videos or something that looks more professional, this should help.

Price

Ultimately, price does matter. It can be a great indication of what the camera is like. If you’re looking for something simple that you can use to capture easy videos for home life, you don’t need to spend a lot of money to get something that meets your requirements. In fact, most smartphones these days can capture videos that help you remember birthdays, funny moments or simply those little daily things that make up your life. If this is your purpose, then you can find basic video camera for under £50. These make great presents for children!

If you want something more professional, however, a camera can cost anything from £900. The higher quality products that produce the highest quality film and video often cost several thousand pounds. Of course, if you want a higher end camera for wedding videography or professional services, the more research you can do the better.

Extra Equipment

There are so many different considerations to bring into the picture (excuse the pun) when it comes to shooting high quality videos, especially if they’re for special events like my area of expertise: weddings.

One of the most important things I have to think about is lighting. If you want to get into professional photography or videography, understanding lighting it vital. A good photo or video must be shot in good light — the more natural the better — to create high quality images. There are loads of lighting products that can be bought for all different budgets.

When it comes to my style of videography, however, it’s a little different. I specialise in natural and candid photography, this means that I want everything to be as real and genuine as possible. With wedding videography, there’s also the limitation posed by the privacy and focus on the couple. If you were shooting an advert or short film, the position and intrusion of the camera is expected. Filming a wedding, however, means you can’t be too intrusive. You can’t tell a couple to have their first dance in a certain area. And even when taking photographs, I want to capture the genuine moments, no the go-stand-over-there moments. This means that I need the highest quality cameras.

High quality cameras can capture good footage in really low level lighting, which is an essential requirement for dark churches or dance halls. When looking for a camera, search out products that can shoot in low-level lighting.

Weight

The weight of a camera can be a big deciding factor. It depends on what you’re doing as to how much the weight of your camera matters. If your interested in travel videography and documentation, then you’re likely to need something light in order to not only keep weight limits down on plane trips, but also to not injure yourself when caring it around on your travels.

As a wedding expert, I need a camera that is relatively light. I have to carry the equipment around with me all day, following the bride, groom and guests as they move between church and reception, as well as being able to move quickly to capture the best moments of film. A heavy camera could not only cause me injury, but also slow me down and limit the shots I could take.

When doing your research, decide what maximum weight you want for your requirements. Look at the spec of a camera to find its weight.

 

Hopefully this information has helped you think about new things to consider when finding the best video camera for your needs. There are many other factors and each one will depend on why it is you’re looking for a camera.

Best Car Racing DVD’s to Buy

Whether you’re a car enthusiast or not, it’s hard not to appreciate action-packed car movies.

We have a lot of experience creating marketing strategies for automotive clients, and it’s safe to say we’re a team of motor heads too.

Shots of beautiful, luxurious cars and fast-paced, thrilling car chases appeal to audiences around the world, and for good reason.

Here are our favourite car movies of all time.

The Fast & Furious Series (2001 – 2015)

While we might be cheating a little by listing The Fast & Furies series of seven movies as one entry, there’s no question these films deserve a place on this list. From the first film, The Fast and the Furious, in 2001, all the way through Furious 7, in 2015, this franchise has captured the interest of car lovers and moviegoers.

All the movies are packed with story lines involving heists and street racing, and of course, beautiful cars. These films have been so successful that there’s an eighth movie, Fast & Furious 8, on the docket and there are rumours that there could be two more after that, rounding off the series with a total of 10 films.

The Great Race (1965)

This film classic, released in 1965, is a comedy set at the turn of the 20th century with its fair share of action and adventure. The main character, known as The Great Leslie, sets up a car race that will cover three continents. When his rival Professor Fate challenges him with a car he invented himself, the game is on. In this movie, you’ll follow the race while watching old-school cars and the antics of the unforgettable characters.

The Italian Job (1969)

While The Italian Job was remade in 2003, the history of this classic film begins in 1969 with its original release. Another comedy with plenty of action, this movie is all about a recently released convict’s plan to steal a shipment of gold by creating a traffic jam.

Set in beautiful Turin, Italy, this movie has a mixture of action-packed scenes, comedy, and fun cars like Mini Coopers and Jaguars to keep you watching as the story unfolds. Of course, the car chase that tears right through buildings, rivers, highways, sewers and even rooftops, is something you can’t miss.

Gone in 60 Seconds (1974)

Gone in 60 Seconds, released in 1974, is another movie that was so successful it was remade (in 2000). This move is fully action packed and has a dose of drama for good measure.

The plot is all about Maindrian Pace and his team, who are insurance investigators by day and car thieves by night. Hired to steal 48 cars, Pace is unable to grab a 1973 Ford Mustang and decides to ditch the drug lord that hired him. However, his boss has alerted the police, forcing Pace to run from the law in a chase that takes him through five cities.
