equipment: December 2008 Archives
At SciCast’s orbiting world headquarters we’re big fans of Canon’s range of video cameras. While we like the Flip range around the £100 mark, we really really like Canon’s flash card, hard drive, and HDV cameras, for three very simple reasons:
- They’re competitively priced.
- They’re at least comparable in picture quality to other cameras around the same price.
- They have microphone input sockets.
That last is key. Really key. Very very key. Built-in microphones are one thing, but being able to plug in a cheap lapel microphone makes a huge difference.
