Hi! It's Tyrone Shum from Outsourcinglive.com and welcome to the dedicated channel where
I teach you about how to outsource your videos.
Now, a very common question that people are always, always asking is "What camera shall
I use?" Because once you've recorded your content like what I'm doing right now, you're
going to have to send it over to your video editor. So what is that's really, really quick
and easy and also what is very efficient to be able to get across to them.
And there's really two options. One, is to use a very basic camera for people who are
on a budget which I'm going to share with you shortly. Or two, use a little bit more
advanced camera which is the current one that I'm using right now to record on. And both
is really dependent on your budget and also depending on the quality of the video that
you want to get out there.
Obviously the more you pay for a particular camera, the better the quality you're going
to get but it won't break an arm and a leg.
All right so the first one that I've been using for quite some time before I actually
upgraded to this camera that I'm currently recording on is a Kodak Zi8 camera. This is
a very nice, very thin and very light camera that I've been using and I had a 32GB card
in here to be able to record all my high definition videos.
Now the reason why this is a great camera is one, it has an external microphone which
you can just plug in onto the side right over here. I don't know if you can see it actually
right here but basically you just plug in that condenser mic which is I'm going to talk
a little bit more about that but plug that straight in, mount that into a tripod and
then hit the remote to record where you can get a separate remote and you're up and away.
That's exactly what I did for quite a long time. When you have look at a lot of my videos,
I had at least about almost 100 videos that I recorded using the Kodak Zi8 camera. And
it's a great camera because it records in high definition and the video files are quite
small in comparision.
So that's - that's what I would recommend. I noticed that a lot of other people also
recommend the Flip Mino, but unfortunately the Flip Mino doesn't have any of the external
mic plugin unless you want to spend extra money but this is a really good budget camera
that you can pick up. You can buy from Amazon or eBay or anything like that and I'll make
sure I'll put a link down below so that way you can check it out directly.
So that one is very good because you can upload easily, send to your video editor and he'll
be able to do it straightaway.
Now the second option which is a little bit more advanced and also too, it records very,
very high quality and you can see just from the recording is called the Canon T3i Rebel.
And I'm not going to take the credit that I found this. This was actually recommended
to me by my good friend Gideon Shalwick from GideonShalwick.com and he uses a little more
advanced camera which is the next model up but for me, I'm happy with this one because
this one has been really focused on allowing me to record videos. And just again, it does
have an external mic so the great thing is I can plug this mic that I've got on clipped
on me straight into the camera and start to share with you.
So what I'll do is I'll put the link below but it's called the Canon T3i Rebel which
is an SLR camera and it allows you to be able to record well, videos up to at least 12 minutes
or so then after that you can edit it from there.
Now, one word of caution, these cameras these particular Canon cameras record very, very
large file and there's little trick that I'm going to share in the future video on how
to be able to get this sent over to your video editor in a smaller format and I think apparently
right now it records up to about 300MB per minute so if you're going to do a 10-minute
video, it's going to be about 3GB which is quite big. Whereas in comparison, the Kodak
Zi8, for about a 5-minute video that I used to record, it will only be about 200-300MB
so it's a fraction of that size so you just have to take that in consideration when you're
working with you and outsourcing it over to your video editor overseas.
All right so yeah, these are really the two cameras that I highly recommend. Make sure
that whenever you're getting a camera, you'll also get a lapel mic which is what I'm currently
holding right now, you can sort of see it on me. But basically it's just a mic that
just clips onto you and plug it straight into your camera and it gives you much, much better
quality of sound.
And you can pick up these for like $30 or so from like *** Smith or Tandy store and
that's what I've done.
Okay so yeah, hopefully this video has helped you there. If you've got any further questions,
feel free to leave your comments down below and I'll be more happy to answer them but
these are one of the two the cameras that I've been using for quite some time and I
- I cannot just - I cannot say how great they are because they're just - brilliant. So give
it a go, check it out and let me know what you think.
All right, thanks so much for watching this. My name is Tyrone Shum from Outsourcing Live
and remember, just outsource it.
