Best HD Video Camera for Creating Online Video | Easy Online Video Marketing Tips


Hi, I’m Hani Mourra from Easy Online Video Markeing Tips. Today’s video, I’m gonna talk about and answer a common question that people have been asking me a lot lately. the question is what video camera do you recommend for online video my first answer is, Use what you have. If you have a webcam, go ahead and use that. If you have a digital camera that can film movie clips

0:00:22.820,0:00:23.609
use that. if you have a camcorder, use that. so, whatever equipment you already have go ahead and use it. it just gonna work fine online and then, people tend to ask me a follow-up question, and say, “Hani, what if I don’t have any equipment? What do I go out and buy?” So what I tell them is Invest in what is called a pocket-size camera And the reason why they call it a pocket-size, is literally,it fits in your pocket. they’re small, compact and light. the three pocket-size cameras I recommend are the Flip Mino HD the Creative Lab’s Vado HD and the Kodak Zedi 8. These cameras are all comparable. and they’re all perfect for online video all three cameras have a USB cable built in to the camera so you don’t need to carry any cable with you. You slide the notch. and the USB connector is there. then you plug it into your computer. they also all have software for doing basic editing. built into the camera so when you plug the camera in the software comes up you choose a clip and you can do basic editing once you’re done editing, you have the option of directly sending your videos to YouTube or to Facebook and to other websites. So that’s really, really convenient. The bottomline is don’t let the camera equipment hold you back from recording online videos Use what you have. Or invest in a small, inexpensive pocket-size camera by the way, these cameras range between a hundred and two hundred dollars and, get your videos out there by the way, if you haven’t noticed I’m due for a haircut. And that hasn’t stopped me from recording my video today So don’t let anything come in your way in recording your online video I’m Hani Mourra from Easy Online Video Marketing Tips.

    @umum80 Hey umum, I am not familiar with the Poloroid, but you can most likely edit it with a video editing software called Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD. Give it a try, there is a 30-day free trial online.

    @Sliderbleautwo Great question. You have a few options. For $97 you can get the best one (in my option…I use it all the time) called "ScreenFlow". For free, you can try one called "Capture Me" . Please Google them both.

    There are also two great free online services that do screencaps and allow you to post to YouTube and Twitter automatically. They are called "Screenr" and "ScreenToaster". The best part is that there is no software to download and install.

    Cheers,
    Hani

    @Sliderbleautwo One more…if you have the latest Mac OXS Snow Leapord, it comes with a Quicktime X which also allows you to create screen capture videos.

    @whatigot2say I am using a Sony clip-on mic that I've had for a few years now. It came with a wireless microphone kit, but I don't use the wireless part. I hope that helps.

    @trisha60 If you check out my blog (link in the video description) and search for "camera" you will find a blog post that shows my top choices. The cheapest option (with great video quality) is the Vado HD Gen 3. It also has a microphone input so you can connect a mic and get even better audio quality. It records in 720p and the quality is awesome for YouTube.

    Well let's say if you wanna film hidden camera pranks and you need one that is small and is able to stand up without being easily noticed. Then what would you consider?

    @JohnMcleanOIL You can buy a second hand macbook for about half the price of a new one…and it will work just as great! Macs rock and they last forever (or close to it) πŸ™‚

    Not sure how to capture you xbox 360 screen. For voice over, you can use any video editing package (like Windows Movie Maker) to record your voiceovers and overlay them on top of your videos before uploading them to YouTube

    You are very welcome. Smartphones like iPhone 4(s), Android phones, and even Blackberrys have decent video cameras as well. Plus they are very convenient since we usually carry them in our pockets
