Camera selection for MidFur....

Postby Burke_a_lot » Sat Sep 04, 2010 5:03 pm

Alright then.... I need help selecting which cameras and a few other things to take to MidFur this year.... Any advice on the following would be awesome!

I have a rig set up that will be with me most of the time.... It has a Canon EOS 400D digital SLR with a Panasonic SDR-S7 video camera attached on this one jig.... That way I can snap away as well as film at the same time.... This jig also includes a multi colour light setup for effects....

Now that's not really what I needed help with.... what I need help with is the precision stuff.... should I bring my Pentax K1000 for group photos? and / or my box brownie?

And for the video should I get a shotgun Mic for external audio recording?

Any advice would be awesome!

Cheers. Burke_a_lot.

Have you already got the mic or are you going to get one?

Well no knowing much about the mic. AIl I can tell you is that shotgun mic's will pick up a bit of sound from behind and the sides of the mic. So don't be surprise if you are interviewing someone that you hear background cheater.

Do you have a picture of the mount for your camera and video camera? How heavy is it to carry both? Is there good weight balance so it's not so heavy?
