Another attempt to record a concert
« on: May 03, 2019, 04:14:13 PM »
Chris will again be our videographer for the Delta Strummers June 2 concert. I sprang for an inexpensive Canon video camera, thinking it's easier to use than my Panasonic G7 that she's used in the past. The Canon doesn't have the lens the Panasonic has, and I'm trying to get some time at the theatre to compare the two cameras alongside each other from Chris' assigned seat.

I dusted off the stereo mic that was discussed in this topic and ran some simple in-home tests. The built-in Canon mic's are far superior to those on the Panasonic, but the external mic was a huge improvement over that.

The inexpensive Canon doesn't have a hot shoe to be able to mount the ext mic', so I purchased a $10 dual camera mount bracket that attaches to a tripod.

The best way to succeed is to look in Craigslist and hire a real video photographer.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

We have/know a local pro videographer who does great work, but he's too expensive for us, and an overkill for YouTube videos. With theater fees and riser rental, we're lucky if we break even on this concert.
