The basic video production equipment includes four pieces. Camera: The most important piece is the camera. It’s used to capture all the action and background in your video. There are many types of cameras. Digital cameras are ubiquitous today. Still film cameras are also in demand.
Microphone: A microphone, another important piece of video production equipment, is essential. There are many types of microphones. In addition to having lots of uses, they also cost a lot of money. Digital microphones can be carried in your bag easily or you can buy a shockmount microphone that is useful for shooting outdoors.
Lighting: Another important aspect of production tools is the lighting. Professional photographers use lighting techniques to create mood and effect. Videography requires the use of good lighting techniques. There are many types of lighting. The lighting you use will depend on where you are shooting and how much light you are getting to your subject.
Sound editing: We don’t need enough editing tools in our multimedia arsenal. The editing area must be organized with a consistent set rules to ensure that your final cut is flawless. The director or actor will often control the lights while the sound editor handles the sound. There are many options for sound editing. If your budget allows it, you can hire a sound editor. Most actors and directors do not need the extra pressure that comes with audio editing.
Post-production. After you have finished the video, you must be able to edit it. This is an important step to ensure your video quality is perfect. There are many different editing software programs that you can get started with. Microsoft Media Pro is widely used but it does have limitations when it comes to editing so I recommend you get a good quality editing software that will meet your post-production needs.
Microphones are available in a variety of styles. You have two options when shooting video: a monaural microphone, or a cardioid mic. A cardioid microphone records sound in one diaphragm, and transmits it to an audio monitor. You can then add effects. Mono microphones are very popular. It captures all sound in one diaphragm. These microphones are better at capturing audio. It is important to consider lighting when choosing the right microphone type.
Cameras: We touched on this already but we need to touch on this one. You need to capture movement in the videos. A normal camera can’t be used because they give out small images. You will have poor audio and video quality if you use a point-and-shoot or another lower quality camera. You want to select the best cameras for your needs.
