On this summer’s Disney trip, I’m planning on doing something new. I want to make short videos for my clients (and potential clients) to be able to watch to help them with all things Disney World. Each clip will be a few minutes long and will contain helpful tips and information. Not only am I hoping to get more clients this way, but I also just want to keep putting myself out there to show my expertise.
But there’s a problem we’re running into: how should we make these recordings? The quickest/least expensive route is to just use the video feature on our regular digital camera. The down side is that it will require lots of memory card space and battery life. Plus, you can actually hear the zooming in and out on the video.
I’ve been looking at the Flip, which is being discontinued, but has been highly reviewed and is the best selling mini camcorder on the market. I also heard they work really well with iMovie on Macs (which is super important, as we have a Mac.) My mom has the Kodak Playsport, which she really likes and it gets good reviews. But I haven’t been able to find anything definitive on how well it works with Mac programs. Some people I guess are using iPhones or iPod Touches, but we don’t have those and I’ve heard the audio recording on them is still not as good as an actual camera.
So…if ANY of you have any insight into a good (but affordable) video recording option, I’d be so grateful! And I can’t wait too long, as we go to Disney in June! 🙂
