What Video Camera Should I Buy? My New Course on Lynda.com

September 27, 20161 Comment

One question I get asked a lot is. Hey Erik. What video camera should I buy? Well, that’s a tough one to answer because we all shoot diffrent stuff and have diffrent needs but, in my new course on Lynda.com I will help you find the right camera and much more.

Video cameras have come a long way. They’re smaller, lighter, and shoot in higher resolutions—4K and beyond. Now more than ever, we have to make the right choice on what camera to buy or rent for the type of productions we shoot. The lighting, the locations, the size of your team, and even the computer you use for video editing can all impact the decision.

Evaluating your production workflow and the camera options out there can save you time, money, and maybe even your sanity. Camera enthusiast Erik Naso is here to help. He’ll teach you how to ask the right questions and pick the right camera—balancing “the camera I should buy” with “the camera I want to buy,” so you end up happy with your purchase over the long run. Learn how to figure out your budget and needs; understand the different file formats, sensors, and lenses available; and choose the right accessories for any shooting situation.

Topics include:

  • Understanding the camera components: sensor, lens, etc.
  • Evaluating audio inputs
  • Taking your type of production into account
  • Deciding on a budget
  • Choosing accessories such as tripods and gimbals
  • Camera codecs and media cost

Lots of great info in a course that only takes 50 minutes to complete!

Now I wish this course was free, however it’s relatively inexpensive.
