My organisation has a Panasonic HC-V700 for event video. The video end product consists entirely of a single person standing at a lectern and is published on YouTube. I usually set up the camera by mounting it on a tripod, manually focussing on the subject, connecting the audio, turning on record at the start of the event, and stopping the record at the end of the event.
I would like to replace this with the Canon EOS Rebel T5i which was purchased by the event organiser for stills, along with EFS 55-250 mm lens.
Audio is supplied via line feed. I use a mixer and headphones to check the levels before feeding the audio to the camera.
The venue is indoors, and lighting is usually poor. The camera is usually located at the back of the room, and is in a fixed position, and no zooming is required.
Will this replacement camera deliver a better result?
What configuration does it need to do the job?
