Adventures in video
Nice setup – basically I have a pair of lapel mikes that go to wireless belt packs (they also do a single one for not much more than half the price), and the receiver unit will mount on the camera accessory shoe out of the way and plug into the microphone input on the camera. As I have a newer Canon (700D) DSLR it’ll shoot full HD video and the view screen will flip and twist so I can see it while I’m filming.
Things to work on:
- the view screen is sufficiently small I can’t see it very well without my glasses, which means I can’t tell if I’m correctly focused when sat down. The autofocus can ‚hunt‘ a bit, which currently is solved by a process that involves a bunch of faffing with manual with something placed in the chair at ‚me‘ height to focus on. More experimentation required – I think I can force it to use a limited set of autofocus points so it will reliably pick up me rather than the bookcase behind me.
- I could plug a small monitor into the camera’s mini HDMI output so I can see what it’s showing better, however…
- this would make my tendency not to look into the camera even worse (which is not helped by having a lazy left eye that tends to drift inward :D)
- That said, I don’t look as bad in front of a camera as a talking head as I thought I might…
|Yes, I’m not done tidying yet 😀|
I do also have a shelf clamp for the DSLR, but it’s quite hard to get it to stay in position and not sag, annoyingly.
