Testing Out a Different Camera

06 Mar

I’ve had a Nikon D5100 for a few months, mostly to take pictures.  But I decided to try out the video recording function, since it can record HD video like a lot of DSLRs these days.  Anyway it turns out to work really well, I think, so I figure I’ll use this camera at least for video logs.  In videos where I’m moving around a lot, I’ll probably use my normal video camera, since supposedly the 5100 has an issue with recording video when fast moving things are involved. 

The biggest advantage of using a HDSLR is that you get a bigger sensor and can have really low depth of field shots.  Also you can use whatever lenses you have for your camera.  Check out my video to see what it looks like.  This is actually an awareness video I made about the whole Kony 2012 campaign, but it nicely shows the abilities of the 5100 when proper lighting and audio are used.

Unboxing of AT-897 Shotgun Microphone

05 Mar

Last week I ordered some new equipment with which I hope to improve the quality of my videos.  Among other things, I got two new microphones: One being a Sony UWP-V6 wireless lavalier mic system (which I used to record my voice in the video), and second being the Audio Technica AT-897 shotgun microphone.  I have yet to test out the shotgun mic, but I really liked the packaging for it.  So much so that I decided to unbox it so everyone could see it in its full glory.

You can purchase it here via amazon: http://amzn.to/Aq1eH6

Joe’s Pro Tips: Episode 1

This week, I made a video describing various “tips” for every day life.  This is a comedy video, so don’t actually try anything described in the video!  I shouldn’t have to say it, but unfortunately someone might end up hurting themselves because they’re too stupid.  Anyway, enjoy!
