Classic “Don'ts” Don’t... forget to charge battery or load media leave lens cover on leave camera on when not shooting have irrelevant people or things in shot catch camera reflected in window/ mirror get thumb or shadow in shot talk over shot edit shots “in camera”
Shooting Tips Use a tripod –shots will look much better Run through the action before shooting Make sure you’re covering everything, particularly if you have complicated movement Start recording about 5s before the action starts You can edit this out later Record at least 2 takes for each shot Record a “master” shot for each scene
Resolution Cameras default to 1080/ 60 (HD resolution/ frame-rate) Better set at 720/ 30 Whenever you turn on the camera Check the bottom left corner of the screen If number is 1080, press “menu” button, select “resolution” and select “720” You will always need to reset the frame rate to 30. In the menu, click down to the second page Select “Stabilizer” Make sure the green tick is selected Click menu button The number at the bottom left should now read “720P30”
Charging it Up Make sure battery and charger with camera Different cameras have different adapters Battery should be connected to the base unit in order to charge it
Camcorder Media Mini-DV Tape| Mini-DVD Disc SD Card
Turning it on Press the “on/off” button once Check the “mode” – you won’t be able to record if the video camera icon is not selected If you can’t see anything, make sure you’ve taken the lens cover off
Lens Covers Some cameras have internal lens covers The Powershots have the lens cover attached to the camera
Aspect Ratio Some cameras default to an aspect ratio of 4:3 (old TV standard) Make sure you set your camcorder to 16:9 (or “widescreen”). You will usually do this via the camera menu
Zoom To “zoom” (i.e. make the image bigger or smaller) , use the “W/T” slider (usually found on the “shoulder” of the camera The slider is “touch sensitive” – the zoom will speed up or slow down depending on pressure Advised not to zoom when recording; this will generally make your footage look amateurish However, if you practice a zoom a few times, it can look quite effective
Focus Most domestic camcorders use “auto-focus” You can alter this, although you will need to experiment You will find it difficult to maintain the focus if your subject moves much You are advised to only experiment with focus at your own risk
Light Camcorders work best in reasonable light If you shoot at night or in low light, image quality will degrade Ideally, shoot during the day and then tint the image to create “day for night” Otherwise, make sure you have enough light
Effects Many cameras come with “effects” buttons You are advised not to use these when you are shooting You can create more powerful effects using the editing software, with the advantage that you can undo them if you don’t like them
