Video Blogs, which camera do you recommend

4 replies
Hey guys,

I am helping a client with a vlog, looking to use I am wondering if I can get some recommendations on a good camera to use...looking for hi-def, mic inputs, compatibility with Mac's Final Cut Pro for editing. I used to be a flip cam guy, but my old baby just died and I HAVE to upgrade, so looking to spend a little money on something really nice. Let me know your thoughts Warriors, thanks!

    I am pretty happy with a Kodak Zi8, but there is another one out that is a 'Duo' - The Duo allows you to see yourself as you record yourself... Pretty versatile!

    Note exactly sure of the Duo's name... but I think THIS is it:
    Sony Bloggie Duo CameraSony Bloggie Duo Camera - Don't worry - it's not an affiliate link .I have heard good things about the Bloggie Duo, but haven't seen one in action.

    I know that the Kodak Zi8 really likes *light*... and in my experience it doesn't handle shadows well. SD Media is inexpensive, and pay attention the speed of the SD memory. I usually use a '6' or higher for camera work. The speed helps the image recording time.
    Hope that helps you out!

    Iphone4 or better an 4s. (The 4s now has 1080p HD resolution like the zi8) I have 2 flips a zi8 and a playtouch but now the Iphone is my main cam.

    In fact at Blogworld this weekend they had a whole session devoted to video blogging on an iphone so that says something.

    Mac compatible of course. It's connected to wifi/3g for quick upload, you can edit on the phone if you want, some great apps to give your video a polished look and yes you can connect a mic. Also you can tap focus, and lock exposure and white balance, unlike the zi8 (which is a nice camera)
