With the correct equipment, clientele and crew, a video production company can be rather lucrative. Video production companies can produce small to large productions like local commercials, webcasts, television shows and series, documentaries and movies depending on the client’s needs. It is of utmost importance to gauge the needs of each individual client before you purchase a video camera. There are at least four things to consider before making the purchase.
Choose a Camera for a Videographer Business
1. First and foremost, consider your company’s budget. Create a break-down of the expenses of the camera purchase as well as accessories involved in making the video camera function as a complete unit. For instance, your goal may be to become an Oscar-award-winning filmmaker. However, your budget may not permit those dreams to come true. Purchase a camera that has a variety of functions such as automatic and manual focus. Try your best to stay within your budget.
2. Choose a 3-CCD camera that operates well in both light and dark locations. 3-CCD or 3-chip video cameras are considered broadcast quality cameras. 3-CCD refers to the measurements of color separation, which are red, green and blue. CCD stands for charge-coupled device. In today’s technical world, try to choose a camera that has both automatic and manual focus, white balance and audio levels.
3. Research digital technology and video standards to better help you make your final selection. You should choose a digital
3-CCD video camera, at the very least. At the very best, you should choose a video camera that shoots in HD mode. HD also known as High Definition, gives digital video great detail and creates a product that is crystal clear.
4. Decide on what product your company will mainly produce. In other words, choose a video camera for the genre you will most likely cater to. For example, if your clientele revolves around small video productions, such as weddings and birthdays, choose a 3-CCD video camera. If your clientele mainly consists of independent film directors, producers and screenwriters, you will need a video camera that has the capability to shoot in 24p frame mode.
