Question for you…

Hi again!

I’m having a hard time deciding which of these subjects I should cover next, because I don’t know which one you want to see most.

So, I thought it would make sense to ask you. These are the topics I’m considering for the next Izzy Video tutorial:

  1. How to shoot video in small rooms.
  2. How to shoot video in low light situations.
  3. How to use the Zoom H4n audio recorder.
  4. How to dramatically improve family video without buying more gear.

As you know, my goal is to make stuff that’s helpful to you, so I really want your input.

Which one do you want me to cover next? Please let me know in the comments…

  1. Brad Balfour says on :

    Definitely #4. It’s the main kind of videos I get to shoot.
    Keep up the good work!

  2. Aleksander says on :

    #2 would’ve been quite useful!

  3. Brian Bresee says on :

    low light situations please

  4. Andreu says on :

    #4 of course! although #2 is really interessant too (many of the low end camcorders have severe problems in low light situations, delivering footage that is too grainy to be usable)

  5. wizer says on :

    4 seems to be a good bet. Unless I can just vote for all of them?

  6. Bob Krist says on :

    Izzy: Number 2, low light, would be great. And it would be good if you could address HDSLR (Canon and Nikon) as well as camcorder tips. thanks, Bob

  7. Brett Barham says on :

    In order of my preference I say: 2,4,1,3.

  8. Isidra Person-Lynn says on :

    Please do # 2! I am faced with that right now for a big event this weekend!

  9. Lee Varis says on :

    I’d go for the Zoom audio recorder. I’m trying to utilize this with my Canon 5D mkII to capture better audio for my videos with the VDSLR.

  10. Jensita says on :

    #4 is a good one.

  11. Paul Edward says on :

    Can we vote for all four? :-) I just bought the Zoom H4n, so that would interest me.

    Thanks for all you do.

  12. Ross Geraghty says on :

    For me either 1 or 2 would work best as I actually often have to do both at the same time.

    Thanks Izzy. Love your work.

  13. Jacqueline says on :

    I think the biggest problem is shooting in small rooms.
    I wish I could set up a permanent studio.

  14. Mark Paul says on :

    small rooms and low light would both help.

  15. Ernie says on :

    Either #2 or #1.

  16. Nick says on :

    Zoom h4n please! I really would like to learn to use it better!

  17. Michael Popovich says on :

    I would love more information on #2….#4 would be my second choice.

  18. Jacquie says on :

    how to shoot in small rooms and low light, but not for members only, for the poor struggling aspiring film makers like myself :)

    Keep up the good work!

  19. smuseby says on :


  20. Stefano Biancardi says on :

    # 2 would be good.

  21. Victoria says on :

    #4… #2 would be great as well. Thanks for all your great tutorials!

  22. Glenn Forsythe says on :

    I would say number two would be my top choice. Poor lighting conditions are at the base of so many issues with home projects. No matter what kind of gear you have going, bad light can totally change the quality of the shot. I would also put number one as my second choice–seeing how small rooms and low light seem to come in pairs. :-)

  23. Andy says on :

    All of them are great, probably my order of preference would be 4-1-2-3.
    Number 3 is last because after watching your vid I’ll probably have to go out and buy one…. :-)

  24. Tom Parish says on :

    Small room shots would be great please.

  25. Patty Kuning says on :

    I’d really like to hear more about the H4n

  26. Billy says on :

    I like 1 and 2.

    Thanks , Billy

  27. egrodziak says on :

    #2 – without having to purchase a ton of new lighting equipment! Some times it’s just not convenient to tote along a huge light kit.
    #1 would also be helpful. I often have to shoot faculty in their small offices. #4 – always can use help! Thanks for asking!

  28. Michael Butler says on :

    3. How to use the Zoom recorder please

  29. Steve Mahaffey says on :

    #1 and #2 often go hand-in-hand for me, so those would be of most immediate benefit, but I have been considering the purchase of the H4, so that would be helpful as well. (Be sure to mention settings for getting it’s audio to sync with that of other recorders, please).
    It goes without saying, but I think ALL of your members likely get stuck behind the camera at during family outings, so that, also, would be greatly appreciated.

    I look forward to them all!
    (Starting with 1 & 2)

  30. Steven Cartier says on :

    Low light situations.

  31. vwflyer says on :

    I think I’d be most interested in hearing your thoughts on #2 but they all look good.

  32. ed judice says on :

    Hi Izzy, First thank you for it all. I may be the oldest working member (or not) but what I have learned has been so so good in my work. Just starting (2 years) to shoot video for clients and your work is my main man!I vote for #2. Thanks for keeping in touch with all of your loyal students.

  33. Leslie says on :

    I would definitely go with #2. if I had to choose a second place it would be 4!

  34. Joshua Martens says on :

    #4, then #2. :)

  35. SmokingChicken says on :


  36. Brett says on :

    #2 Low Light for sure

  37. KAUF says on :

    Zoom H4n for starters, though you couldn’t go wrong with any of your choices

  38. JL says on :

    Dear Izzy,

    Numbers 1 and 2 are my biggest challenges when I shoot my videos, since they represent my real conditions so far.

    Although you have made a tutorial about chroma-keying, It would be great to also know how to light “green screen” when having 2 separated lights environments are not possible due to room-size restrictions.

    Well, that’s my contribution today. Hope to see the new tutorials,

    Cheers from Miami,

    JL Galvis

  39. Hans Leeflang says on :

    I’am also in for the Zoom H4n recorder topic. I bought one myself a couple of months ago, but so far used in only for recording ambient sound and interviews (no video). it wouId be helpful to learn some tricks for recording audio in video projects.

  40. Greg says on :


    I’m an architectural photographer making the conversion to video with my Canon 5d mark 2

    Small and large interior spaces is what I need help on.

    Using the zoom recorder as compared to a hard wired mic would also be helpful

    Thanks for asking.

  41. Alain Gauthier says on :

    I’m currently shooting all of our training video in a small room, with poor lighting. So, it is somewhat crowded with the light boxes and all…
    So, my choices would be either 1 or 2.

    You’re the best,


  42. Mrs. James says on :

    shooting in small rooms is definitely my pick. I shoot too many things in tight spots and would love to learn how to make my videos look better.

  43. Mohammad says on :

    I guess I take number 2 among those.
    Thanks again

  44. Jeff Schafer says on :

    How to dramatically improve family video without buying more gear

    If you want all of then in order it would be 4,2,3,1

    Thanks — Jeff

  45. Rod says on :

    I’ll vote for #4 :) who wants to buy more stuff – unless of course… you just have a bunch ‘o money :)

  46. Craig says on :

    In order of preference…
    2 – 4 – 1 – 3

    Thanks for asking!

  47. Ian Smith says on :

    I like all of them so can’t choose. Sorry!

  48. Ahmed Ahad says on :

    All four topics are great. My vote in order below.

    1. How to shoot video in low light situations.
    2. How to use the Zoom H4n audio recorder.
    3. How to shoot video in small rooms.
    4. How to dramatically improve family video without buying more gear.


  49. tom jaconette says on :

    they’re all great topics, but my #1 is improving family video, followed by low light, then small rooms, and last Zoom H4n audio recorder. izzy, thanks for letting us have input! very cool.

  50. Titus Nixon says on :

    I would go for # 2 also, but it don’t really matter to me

  51. Kats says on :

    I would like to see all four eventually, but since I just purchased a Zoom, I’d like to see that next!

  52. Doug Blair says on :


    I suggest you cover 1,2 and 4. Without even knowing what it is I know I don’t own the Zoom recorder, so device-specific instructions don’t really help me out. More generic tips and tricks and techniques, rather than how to use a particular bit of hardware or software, are more useful to me.

    Thanks for all you do!

  53. Mike says on :

    #2 would be the most useful

  54. Changa says on :

    Definitely #2!!

  55. Pawel says on :

    #4 and then # 2 & # 1
    Thank You

  56. Bryan Rawiri says on :

    Hi Izzy,

    I would like:

    Number 3:the ZOOM H4n
    Number 4: Improve family video
    Number 2: Low Light
    Number 1: Small rooms

    Cheers and keep up the great work. I look forward every week to something new.

  57. Richard Lamontagne says on :

    I would prefer the small room shooting or the low light situation

    thanks for everything

  58. Jonny Morris says on :

    I would like to see them all also. Any order would be great.

  59. Bryan says on :

    Izzy, how about how to shoot family videos in a small room with dim lighting.

    Actually, the only one pertinent to me is #2, low light without the dreaded gain!


  60. Avartisan says on :

    Low light! Next is H4n (I just bought it!)

  61. Ken Fast says on :

    Low light. Always a challenge, chiefly because of the grain buildup.

  62. Jeff Forrest says on :

    Low Light for Me

  63. jimkells says on :

    Izzy .. I have not seen any bad tuts you have made so all will be great .. that sid amy pref order would be 4,2,1,3

  64. Stephen says on :

    I’d like 2. I’m guessing you’re talking about combatting low light situations, which would be great, but I wouldn’t mind tips on deliberately creating low light scenes, too. Thanks!

  65. Ira says on :

    Small rooms are always a problem for me because I use an HV30 and a Flip Ultra HD and their widest angles are never wide enough.

  66. Paige says on :

    #2 please. I have the DVX and the HVX; great cameras but they don’t do well in low light and I hate adding gain!

  67. Gary says on :

    My biggest struggle is sound. So anything sound related really helps. Your videos are great.

  68. Chris says on :

    #2 Will be great with me.

  69. Peter T says on :

    Number 2

  70. Rene says on :

    #1 Please :-)

  71. Chris says on :

    I vote for #2, always a challenge. Would love your take on number 4, your family work is always fabulous.

  72. Mike Juhl says on :

    The order I would rank them is: 3, 1, 2, 4. Thanks!

  73. Gabe Rutledge says on :

    Definitely number 3. I have one sitting on my shelf, but haven’t had time to dive into it. I would love to see what you have to say about it!

  74. Kevin Railsback says on :

    Number Two followed by Number Three
    How to shoot in low light situations without cranking up the grain and having the video look like someone poured sand all over it would be awesome.

    I have a Zoom H4n but would love to know how to use it optimally.

  75. Jon Y says on :

    #2 as low light is a pain, particually on hdv. Use of gain is shocking!

  76. Sophek Tounn says on :

    I vote for #2.

  77. Phillip says on :

    Low Light… I always have trouble in low light.

  78. Noel Ward says on :

    #2 Low light would be very helpful, but the Zoom recorder is also intriguing. Go with Low Light, first though.

  79. Ken Rose says on :

    I vote for low light….

  80. Dave says on :

    4 please

  81. Carol says on :

    #2 please!

  82. Grant says on :

    Please do them in the order you have listed. Thanks.

  83. Rob says on :

    Hi Izzy

    I would have to vote #1, #2, #4 then #3. For anyone with the Zoom H4n there is a good instructional DVD from that I got myself a few months back. It does cost a few dollars but it’s very thorough.

    Looking forward to your decission

  84. Paul Boomer says on :

    In order of desire… #4, #2, #1, #3. Thanks for asking.

  85. Doris Gracy says on :

    I vote for 4! (Next would be 3)

  86. Drew says on :

    #2 – I had some issues last weekend at a wedding reception that had extremely poor lighting. I was using a Canon 7d. So it would be helpful to have some options for the DSLR’s especially.

  87. Michael M says on :

    First I wish no. 2. The rest in this order: 4; 3; 1. But all of them are very interesting and useable.
    Thank ylu for a very interesting site.
    Michael M

  88. Michael says on :

    I would vote for #4

  93. Alan says on :


    Low Light situations, also just a suggestion as i,m struggling a bit with audio cut off between clips (over the shoulder conversations) i,m using imovie 08 at the moment, tried fading down slightly and back up between clips.
    Thanks for the tutorials, really helpful.

  94. Jerry Kay says on :

    My preference 1 and 2

    #4, #2, #1 #3.

  106. Wayne says on :

    Primary: How to dramatically improve family video without buying more gear.
    Secondary: How to shoot video in low light situations.

    Keep it up Izzy!

    Oh, and thanks for the continuing iTunes MS feed – with a busy life it’s nice to NOT have to remember to go and download the latest goodness. Now if only I can convince my iPhone to load them… (heh)


  107. alzyg says on :

    just do 1-4, they all sound interesting!

  108. Joop says on :

    First number 4, and then number 2

    Thanks and good luck

  109. Eduardo Avola says on :

    Todos los temas me parecen importantes, pero el orden de prioridad para mi seria el mismo como fue propuesto.
    Gracias por tus aportes siempre útiles y muy didácticos.

  110. Steve says on :

    I say #2. Low light is sometimes a problem. Second choice would be #4

  111. Lee Anderson says on :

    Definitely #4.

  112. Mark says on :

    #4 has my vote

  113. Chad says on :

    My vote is for number 3, as I plan on buying a Zoom fir use with my DSLR.

  114. Ryan says on :

    #1 or #2.

    I don’t shoot family vids and have no recorder.

  115. Victor says on :

    4. How to dramatically improve family video without buying more gear.

  116. Anthony says on :

    you are an amazing instructor !! #2 please.

  117. Mic Gunderson says on :

    Order of preference 1,2,4,3

  118. Mike says on :

    To solve this bickering how about a lesson on shooting a family video in a small room with only one small window using the Zoom to record all the audio?

    All those in favour raise your right hand …..

  119. scottmd80 says on :

    I would like # 3


  120. valerie says on :

    2 & $ please

  121. Terry of MPS says on :

    #3, using A Zoom recorder (why not the H2) and how to sync the audio with the audio track of the camcorder would be terrific.


  122. Bill says on :

    Just got the Zoom H4N this week so I’ll vote for that

  123. Gardiner says on :

    The order in which you listed the videos works for me. 1,2,3 then 4.

    Thanks and look forward to seeing them.

  124. Meindert says on :

    4 !

    Second choice: 1

    Great customer focus. Keep up the good work !


  125. Briandg says on :

    Number 2, please. Most kit seems to be able to cope with good light, these days, but it is a different matter with low light and shooting with no opportunity to do much pre-planning to make the most of what is available – how do the pros do it?

  126. Paul Dolan says on :

    Please, please,please, I need help with shooting in low light situations. I am editing a wedding video right now and my video looks like I used a bronze filter. I have to do a lot of correction in post. I can’t get a handle on shooting in low light. I would greatly appreciate a video about this, thanks Paul

  127. Rob Tilley says on :

    #2, followed by #4. I have problems shooting in horse arenas – stark outside light against dim interior. Horse moves across the splashes of sunlight then moves into shaded side of arena.

  128. Mel Turner says on :

    My choices: # 4, then #2. thanks for asking.

  129. Roland says on :

    My first choice would be #2.

  130. Jonathan says on :

    #2. I do a lot of wedding receptions and spend loads of time fixing the footage with Neat Video plugin.

  131. Dustin says on :


  132. Steve says on :

    Low light situation, without using gears at $5000+ please :)

  133. Greg says on :

    I wold love to see #4 then #2.

  134. Anil says on :

    Choice 4 would be really good.

  135. Bob K. says on :

    My choices two,four and one.

    Keep up the good work. I don’t use Final Cut Pro, since I use a windows machine. I appreciate your tips that apply to general video editors.
    I use mainly pinnacle studio but, also have a older version of AVID Express pro (ver4.0). Its more affordable upgrading Pinnacle.

  136. Antonio Rego says on :

    They are all great topics. I am most interested in the following in order:
    Low Light Shooting
    Zoom (especially as a live shoot backup audio device)
    Small Rooms

    As for low light shooting, I have demoed the Neat Video plugin and its amazing for correcting gain noise from my V1U – a camera that I love, except for its low light performance.

  137. Niels says on :

    Low light!

  138. Char Jones says on :

    Low Light shooting–thanks Izzy all of your work is so helpful!

  139. Alan says on :

    Amazing, I am looking forward to all of the tutorials in whatever order they are presented.
    You have some great insight in to my needs.

  140. umran says on :

    #2 is so important :)

  141. Dunham Swift says on :

    #3 the Zoom would be my #1 choice.

  142. Mike says on :

    Low Lighting
    Zoom recorder and syncing without PluralEyes (windows here – Edius Edit)
    Family shoot
    small room shoot

  143. Chuck Alldrin says on :

    #4 then #2

  144. Weirdsci says on :

    I would like tom learn to shoot in low light. Thank you

  145. Paul_Imms says on :

    #4 works best for me :-)

  146. Greg Brown says on :

    #1 for me. Trying to set up a small studio type of affair in my woodshop.

  147. Arlin says on :

    #2 please

  148. Jos New says on :

    #1 & #4 please!:)

  149. Heather says on :

    Please eventually do all of them! But for immediate release, I’d love to see #1. I often have interviews with individuals and feel that I am “in their face” and would love to hear your approach to these kinds of situations. Keep up the great work, Izzy! I learn so much from you and appreciate your service.

  150. Gerry Rodriguez says on :

    1 and 2 I live. In a small home low head romm most of my shots are done sitting down.

  151. Hasnain says on :

    #4 because I think it could include multiple tips on bettering footage for even work situations. Then #2 because I find myself in darker than ideal situations when recording video and interviews.

  152. Jason says on :

    Ummm … #2 first, then #1 second.

  153. Ladd Bennett says on :

    Low light tips for sure.

  154. Jeremy says on :

    Definitely #4 but I would like to know if you could add a little more to it. Like what would you suggest for us people that have bare bones and want to go to the next step without spending a fortune. Like what’s the next gear for someone who already has a $400-$800 mini dv camcorder from a few years back. What’s the next step up from that?


  155. Duane says on :

    Thanks for your GREAT tutorials. Much better
    than (easier to understand)
    choice: 4,1,2,3 inthat order.

  156. Anders Lindell says on :

    How to shoot video in low light situations.

  157. Mark Worden says on :

    My order is 3, 2, 1, 4. Thanks very much.

  158. Bill says on :


  159. lin says on :

    No#4 would be good:)

  160. Michael says on :

    1 or 2 would be helpful as we are going to start doing interviews within various locations for our website. Both would apply.

  161. QueenGeek says on :

    #4 followed by #2 :-) At least with all the responses, you definitely know folks are listening to you!!!

  162. Craig says on :

    I vote for ALL of them. But #3 would be my choice to be first. How is that new studio coming along?

  163. Pat Hughes says on :

    #2 please.

  164. tino estrada says on :

    I have an idea, this is something nobody talks about and that will be how to behave in this business . lots of people don’t show respect for their clients and this give us a bad reputation. And also I noticed this type of people talk more than the client they are not good listeners . what do you think?

  165. Ron Hoffer says on :

    Hi Izzy,
    My preferences (in order of) would be: 4,1,2
    Thank you for the chance to provide input!

  166. Sean says on :

    Lighting…..come on really ya got to ask

  167. Rick says on :

    #2 please. Great work, thank you.

  168. Dominic Pruitt says on :

    #2 low light

  169. Arnie says on :

    Two, by far

  170. Bill says on :

    #2 for me as I’ve just (reluctantly) invested in a “Pro 183-LED light” for my Canon XHA1 to avoid grainy footage in future. Keep up the good work!

  171. Wim Hotke says on :

    #4 and then #2 #1 and #3. Thanks for your effort to help us best.

    cheers, Wim Hotke

  172. Roger Bisbe says on :

    #1 and #3 for me.
    Keep up the great work!

  173. Rich Weiler says on :

    All four and in no particular order. AND, keep up the excellent work! :)

  174. Ed says on :

    I would place their importance in this order, 4, 2, 1, 3

  175. John says on :

    Ah, the Zoom of course! Good sound is so important.

  176. Nina says on :

    I’d love to hear your perspective on #2 and how to get help with FCP : )

    Thank you for asking your members about this, Izzy!

  177. Larry says on :

    #4. It’s what I shoot the most.

  178. Roger Foote says on :

    2,3,4,1 would be my priorities. They all sound good though.

    Thanks for all your work Izzy!

  179. Ron Gural says on :

    #2 would be my choice.

  180. vishal says on :


  181. baz says on :

  182. Eugenio Castillo says on :

    #4, 1,2,3

  183. Greg says on :

    #2 & #4 gets my vote

  184. Kenny Brown says on :


    Thanks, Izzy! Love your videos!

  185. octium says on :

    Wow so many replies!!

    My preference: 2 is most important, then 1, then 4 then 3.


    THank you :)

  186. Marc Slover says on :

    I vote for number one. Small spaces are real tough to work with and I’m sure your insight would be helpful. Thanks as always for great work.

  187. ramonekalsaw says on :

    How to shoot video in small rooms.

  188. tejano says on :

    4,1,2,3 thanks for asking

  189. Tom says on :

    thank you

  190. Lawrence Walker says on :

    #4 and the others are great too.
    Keep up the great work. Thanks

  191. David Katzen says on :

  192. Kent says on :

    First choice #2, second #4. Thanks Izzy

  193. rocksand says on :

    I vote for 4, then 2, then 1. I don’t know what 3 is so maybe I should vote for it so I can learn about it! :)

  194. Robbie Roof says on :

    My vote would be how to improve family video using the H4n while in a small room with low light.

  195. Byron Kapali says on :

    #3 Audio is everything!

  196. haziq says on :

    id say all would be great,
    i myself in need of some tips on recording a video with proper lighting( ie recording a product review)

  197. Junod Dufort says on :

    #4. Because I think it could be useful to every body

  198. alberto says on :

    n° 4; but n° 2 is very important too!!

  199. Charlotte Plott says on :

    My vote is #2.

  200. Peter Smith says on :

  203. patrick james says on :

    I am more interested in your post production (FCE 4) tips & tutorials – which have been so helpful but #2 would be interesting. Thanks for asking & keep up the excellent work x

  204. John Sincock says on :

    I would like to see no4 but think they would all be good as most family films suffer because of small rooms,poor light and sound.

  205. Mike Phillipson says on :

    They’re *all* great topics – but I’m thinking of buying a Zoom H4n audio recorder, so I’d like that one 1st!

  206. Erling Asker says on :

    Why not a video about how time consuming video hobby and pro is.
    This for showing family, friends, all people whom believing this is made on a coffiebrake.
    Showing from planing ,taking footage , editing etc.etc..
    I think all who are in this need a relief in order to be appreciated a little bit.

    Thanks for all your excellent lessons

  207. Karine says on :

    Definitely 2. Always a problem when shooting inside and can’t be well corrected in post I find. (Probably due to my lack of knowledge though).

  208. Chuck says on :

    My choice first 2 then 1 then 4 and last 3.
    How to shoot video in low light situations is my winner.

  209. Risto Laakkonen says on :

    #1 and #2, I am going to make a document and I shoot it mostly in these kind of situations.

  210. Daniele de Lutzel says on :

    2 and 4

  211. Mark Dobson says on :

    Hi Izzy,

    your insight into using the h4n would be my choice for you next tutorial. I’ve been using it professionally now for a couple of months together with Pluraleyes and whilst it really chews up batteries and is extremely awkward to use it certainly enables hq sound recording with the Canon 7D / 5D.


  212. Doris says on :

    1 and 2 would be interesting for me. Kind regards, Doris

  213. John Belxhe says on :

    #1 Small Room. There is no other subject that has more inherent problems requiring multiple solutions. Lighting in a small room, sound pick up of close proximity recording, video composition in a small room while shooting HD. So very many issues so many Izzy solutions ready!!!

  214. Antonio Branco says on :

    Definitely how to shoot video in low light situations.

    Thanks IzzY

  215. Luciano says on :

    #2 then #4

  216. Bill Phelps says on :

    Shooting in low light situations would be of most value to me.


  217. Robert Apicella says on :

    They’re all relevant topics to learn about, I can’t prioritize these great choices.

  218. Sacha says on :

    #2 or #4 please!!

  219. Leif Pedersen says on :

    #4 will be good for me.

  220. Tom Alston says on :

    I would like #2 How to shoot video in low light situations. My video seems grainy unless I use flood lights!

  221. JOHN MUSUKWA says on :




  222. Vincent Orlando says on :

    I would say #4 would be my choice.

  223. Dave says on :

    #4 would be absolutely awesome!

  224. Katherine says on :

    I’m voting for how to shoot in low-light situations.

  225. Lori Rae says on :

    # 3 is my favorite. But all 4 is welcomed!

  226. Maung Myint says on :

    Thanks for asking…
    My preference is either #1 or #2.

  227. Darren says on :

    Hi Izzy

    Tricky question. For me the first two subjects would be of most use to me personally, and if I were to choose between them I’d say Nr 2 – how to shoot in low light. Having said that the first one is a very close second.

    Hope that helps!



  228. Edward Barth says on :

    My vote is for number two, shooting video in low light. All the subjects listed are immaterial if you cannot acquire a good picture. I deal with most of my low light level shooting with a camera-mounted light. Most of the time it is inconvenient or impossible to use a key light, fill light, or etcetera. I would be most appreciative if you could cover this subject at length. Thank you for addressing theses video subjects.

  229. Charles says on :

    # 1

  230. Van Daele says on :

    # 4, without any doubt ! It is what I need most

  231. Charles says on :

    #2 please

  232. sam says on :

    2d character animation(human movement, facial expressions, birds, animals, etc.) in Motion

  233. Liz says on :

    Hi Izzy,

    My order of preference is 2, 1, 4, 3. Hope that helps. As always, thanks for your wonderful videos.

  234. Van says on :

    #4. I think most people could use this information.

  235. John Carter says on :

    2 please

  236. Brett says on :

    My vote is for #4

  237. Bill says on :

    #4, family video, then #1 small rooms, then #2 low light.
    Thank you for asking.

  238. Pat says on :

    Every year my students want video of their formal but they are not willing to have the room well lit, so I definitely would like some hints on #2.

  239. Gordon says on :

    I’d like to see number 4, please.

  240. Peter says on :

    3 and 2 for me Izzy. Love the videos and love Gizmo and Gatsby too!

  241. Fred Light says on :

    How to shoot video in small rooms.
    How to shoot video in low light situations.
    How to use the Zoom H4n audio recorder.

  242. Tarek says on :

    all of theme is soo good thank you man

  243. rob says on :

    low light is always difficult with digital video. i would like to see some information to help with that.

  244. Cheryl Ferrara says on :

    Definitely #2. Then in order of preference: 4; 1; 3
    Thanks for everything,

  245. mario says on :


  246. Barry Walker says on :

    No 4 please

  247. Dirk van der Veen says on :

    #4 at first and then #2

  248. Alex says on :

    #4 would be helpful

  249. Pekka Valkama says on :

    Low light yesyesyes

  250. Mark says on :

    Number 2: Low Light… but, they’re all very good topics.

  251. Don Tietjens says on :

    All the topics are very good. I think my preference would #1 and #2

  252. Bill Oliver says on :

    Izzy, after reading some of the many comments and suggestions I thought of something perhaps you can cover in a future training lesson. 30 second commercials would be interesting and to learn the many steps needed to put one of those together would be fantastic!However, it might be too much for one lesson.

  253. Tony Hillman says on :

    I would say #4

  254. James says on :

    Izzy… first choice would be Zoom H4n.

    Thanks for all your great info.


  255. ide guimaraes says on :

    I think I’d be most interested in hearing your thoughts on #2 but they all look good.

  256. Tammy says on :

    All topics look good, but casting my vote for #2 or #1. Thanks!

  257. Harold Corbin says on :

    #2 low light is always a challenge. I’d love to hear what you have to say about shooting in dark places.

  258. John says on :

    #2 (low light) is my top choice, followed by either #1 (small rooms) or #3 (Zoom H4n).

  259. j. sheedy says on :

    # 4 PLEASE.

  260. Jorgen Risum says on :

    I think the use of a off-camera sound recording device would be very helopfull. I am using the little brother H2
    Best regards

  261. Gwen says on :

    I would like option #2

  262. Slagge T. Pyle says on :

    #1 Please

  263. Hope Thelwell says on :

    No 4 would be great. Then no 2. Hope that helps

  264. A.P says on :

    How to shoot video in low light situations. Plz

  265. Miguel Garza says on :

    #2 of course, low light is a very common situation

  266. Steve Kendall says on :

    Actually 1, 2 & 3 would be great. All apply. With low light also talk about how different cameras will react differently.
    The Zoom recorder would be nice for a quick set-up and use of built in and external mics with and without. The small rooms would be interesting with one camera vs additional cameras plus lighting. These are all great ideas.

  267. Daniel says on :

    Low light. Yes.

  268. skimmel says on :

    3. Using Zoom would be incredibly useful for me!

  269. Steven Cartier says on :

    Izzy, I have another topic I would like to see. A universal way for clients to view your work. Youtube does not work and most people don’t have quicktime or flash. Is there a universal method?
