There are a few things you are missing, and a few more you just aren't fully appreciating how much of a difference the things you mentioned make. First, the S6 sensor is not over 1/2 inch, it is 1/2.6 inch, which is substantially smaller than a 1/2 inch sensor, particularly since sensors are measured diagonally. Second, lenses matter a lot more than the ...

It was in camera function. But there is no such thing in video editing, which can not be accomplished with correct software. You can add this text in Adobe Premiere, or Adobe After Effects with some noise etc... You can add it in almost any video editing software. Main thing you need — correct font. It is pixeelated all caps text. You can find one here: ...

Nothing really. All recent camcorders are more than enough for what you want. Two things to look: That shutter speed can change so that you can define how smooth motion you want That they offer fast zoom/focus capabilities for sports. Any recent cam-corder from major companies already covers this. If you want quality sound you should also look for a ...

Focus is focus is focus, whether for still or video. But the story does not end there. Focal length, aperture, sensor size, circle of confusion, etc., all play a role in determining whether you perceive something to be in focus or not. Here's a link to the math.

First, you need a smartphone, such as iPhone or Android. Then you need something to hold it over your notes, such as this. Then you need diffuse lighting at or above the level of your smartphone, one illuminating the left side of your notes, the other the right side of your notes.

These oscillators or crystals are not tuned precisely (or they would cost too much), and they don't have extraordinary stability over temperature ranges. Professional gear uses special techniques to keep audio and video gear in synchronization. ...

There are camcorders that enable full-res uploads of their memory cards via WiFi. Thus, if your room has connectivity to your intranet, you can leave the card in the camcorder, hit upload when you are done, turn the camera off when the upload is done, do your customer edits and uploads, then wipe the card for the next day's work, all without walking 200 ...

If you record speeches that are longer than 30 minutes, the 29m59s limitation of non-video cameras is going to drive you crazy, despite all the other wonderful things they can do. Interviews can be broken up every 30 minutes. Speeches not. If you have ambitions to encompass art projects with your camera, the interchangeable lens feature of the SONY camera ...

Apart from all the reasons mentioned already by Henderson, the sound quality from the mobile phone will be awful compared to a professional video camera. Attempting to record speaking events with a mobile phone is a very difficult decision. You can get for about 500 dollars a tripod, a camcorder and a lavalier microphone which is ok for a speaking event.

If you are a fan of DSLRs, Canon cameras have modified firmwares where you can automatically restart the recording on a new file once you reached the limit. Check for ML ;) Obviously what you will do is concatenate the files in order to obtain a full lenght footage at the end. Consider that this is something that you could use to run up to 3-4 times the ...
