You can divide all the videos cameras on the market into four basic categories. This video tutorial explains and compares the four different grades of video camera. The differences and similarities might surprise you.
There are pros and cons to each level of camera. What works great for one person would be inadequate for the next. I love them all of course, just depends on what I am doing at the moment.
Believe it or not, picture quality is not necessarily the largest distinguishing factor between the different levels of camera. Ease of use and durability are actually what sets them apart, generally speaking.
What level of camera you buy and use depends on these factors:
- How much effort you want to go to
- How artistic you want to get
- Size of budget
- Whether you need portability or instant streaming capability
- What level of resolution quality your projects demand (Sometimes lower is actually better when it comes to online video.)
