Logical Next Step

May 16th, 2010 11:04 am | by Ed |

Now that I've finally been able to actually get the laptop that I have been needing for such a long time I have been thinking about what I should do for the next logical step in putting together a production facility that will be much better than what I have now.

The answer was obvious of course. It's easy to figure out that perhaps THE single most important part of any production facility, professional or home, is the camera. Mind you I do have a decent camera (at least in terms of amateur productions anyway) but just the same it is a lower end model that my wife got on sale a couple of years ago. Because of this it lacks most features that the more advanced models have, some of which I think qualify as "must have" features.

The first of which just has to be the ability to accept sound from an external microphone (or other source, depending on the situation).

One example of something that could easily be a good choice for the next camera would be this Panasonic HDC-TM700 Camcorder. The first thing I liked about it without even reading any of the specs on it was the fact that it doesn't have that thrice damned seven degree tilt built into the camera body that entirely too many "cheap" HD cameras have. This unit has a much more standard, professional look and feel to it. It's very obviously made for doing more than shooting home video of your kid's birthday parties or school plays.

It's a feature packed unit that could easily be used to produce professional quality video in full 1080i High Definition. And yes, it sports an external microphone input along with it's many other features.

To say that I want this is kinda like saying oxygen might be important to some people.
