Tips

Recording your footage 

Here are some tips to use while you are recording your video.

DO NOT FILM EVERYTHING
A lot of people tend to film everything. At home, however, your friends quickly get bored because there is not enough variety in the story.

8 SECONDS
Keep in mind that the ideal shot will take about 8 seconds. This way you can clearly visualize something and still leave something to the imagination.

CHOOSE YOUR SHOT
Continuously zooming in and out while filming not only requires energy, it also appears very amateurish. Videodinges has had its best time.

YOUR OWN DIRECTOR
Be a bit of a director and before you press record, choose whether you want a close-up or a wideshot.

And… Action!
Don’t forget to adjust the time settings of your camera to the local time. Then you don’t have to worry about where you were when at home. Incidentally, you do not have to continuously display the time. Most newer cameras keep up with this, and without a counter, your film looks a lot more professional.

EXPOSURE
Keep in mind that when you move during filming, the light or intensity changes. It often results in under or over exposure. 

Fortunately, cameras often respond to this: the built-in LED light normalizes the exposure in a fraction of a second, so that the subject is always ready to be exposed.

OOPS: TAPE DEFICIENCY OR MEMORY DEFICIT
Make sure you always have a spare cassette or memory card with you. Often these are turned over a lot faster than initially thought.

You can always choose LP or SP to save space.

ECONOMY WITH ENERGY
A battery lasts an average of 2 hours. Much depends on the way you film: constantly zooming in and out or turning the camera on and off, eats energy. Try to limit this and, if necessary, take a spare battery with you.

ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCES
Extreme temperatures, (salt) water, sand, dust,… they can seriously damage your camera or film. Use a solid bag, in which both the camera and its accessories (extra cassettes, extra battery) are safely stored or use a protective cover.

AVOID SUNLIGHT ON THE BATTERY
Batteries quickly lose capacity when stored in an environment above 40 ° C. A temperature that you can easily reach on the dashboard of your car when it is parked in full sun. But they no longer work below freezing.
