The Two Categories of Video Cameras – Izzy Video 185
The most common question I receive is “What video camera should I get?” It’s a very difficult question to answer without knowing a lot of information such as:
- Your budget
- How you’ll be using the camera
- The available cameras to choose from
It’s more empowering for you to know how to classify cameras so you can make a lot of the decision yourself. For example, nearly all video cameras can be classified into ENG or Cine style categories. These two types of cameras are very different in several ways, so it’s one of the first decisions you need to make.
The good news is that once you make the decision to either purchase an ENG camera or a Cine camera, you limit the camera selection dramatically, which makes your decision much easier.
This new episode of Izzy Video is a 17 minute recording I presented as a webinar last week. It goes over the differences between ENG and Cine cameras and how you might use them, and what you can do with the information. I hope you find it helpful!
