I want to shoot few videos. Next step I will edit them in some video editing software. Maybe OpenShot, Shotcut, Kdenlive, DaVinci Resolve. Maybe any else.

In which codec and file format I should shoot video in camera to avoid problems with editing video in video editing software?

    Cameras are usually fairly limited in the choice of codecs they offer. What choices do you have? – stib Jun 6 '20 at 11:54
  • @stib Thank you, stib. I have no camera. I want to buy camera. I want to explore cameras features before buying. Friend has Canon EOS 6D Mark II. Video file format: MP4, MOV. Video codec: MPEG-4 AVC, H.264. – Konskoo Jun 8 '20 at 12:54

    Most cameras at that price point shoot h.264 / AVC. To get something that shoots ProRes or a raw format you'd need to look at something like a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. – stib Jun 9 '20 at 1:40
