Video Production and Editing Techniques for Photographers

First published on: Wednesday, 18 February 2009

With the introduction of movie-making capability in the Nikon D90 and Canon 5D Mark II DSLR (digital SLR) cameras, perhaps it’s time to start compiling tips, techniques and resources for video production specifically targeted to digital photographers.

Sound recording equipment

The built-in microphone on the camera typically records only in mono, and you might want better quality sound. Stu Maschwitz of Prolost made a recommendation for using an external recorder / mic, the Olympus LS-10 Linear PCM Recorder + Olympus ME-52 Noise Cancellation Microphone in this post.

In that same post, Stu recommended the use of the VocALign software for synchronizing the sound as recorded from the camera’s mic and from the external recorder / microphone setup.
