When it comes to unique shots for film projects, it’s okay to think outside the box. In addition to your normal video camera, you can get visually interesting, amazing shots with non-traditional cameras, such as a GoPro or a drone. What can a motion video camera do for your films?
Motion-Activated Security Cameras
Some cameras only start recording when they detect movement. These are called motion-activated video cameras. If you’re looking for a gritty film noire scene or an interesting vantage point, these cameras do the trick. Here’s what to look for:
Trail cameras are used by hunters and scientists to track motion outdoors. If you’re into capturing wildlife footage, these cameras can provide a unique perspective. The downside is that you don’t have control over framing. On the other hand, trail cameras have a playful, intimate and completely natural feel to them.
What are the most important factors to look for?
High-Speed Sports Camera
When it comes to obtaining crisp video during high-intensity scenes with lots of movement, you need a camera capable of autofocusing quickly. Many pros prefer the abilities of HDSLR cameras for this purpose. You can also use a GoPro Hero series camera if you’re planning on being part of the action.
