The answer depends on a lot of things. What kind of video can you make with a phone, what kind of music or what kind of visual style do you have in mind that you can apply to a music video? So you have to think about all these things, or what camera I have, what video editing software I use. It’s quite hard. And it’s kind of a personal situation as well. It depends on my own situation.
So let’s say you want to make a music video for this guy’s song ‘Halo 4’. I think you might be right.
There might be one or two camera setups I would consider when I’m deciding on my gear. The most important thing is having enough money so you can get a decent quality camera.
You know, I was thinking about that, too, and I decided my camera would be the Olympus OM-D (Olympus OM-D is actually known as the Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera – and it’s still one of our favourite compact cameras). It’s really solid and lightweight and it captures some great, high-quality movies. It’s my first ever budget budget video. It works really well – it does look good and it doesn’t have a lot of noise anyway.
There’s a lot of other options that I like but that’s just one of the things. I also have a Panasonic FZ1000 compact camera. It’s not that big but it’s still a good piece of equipment.
The OM-D is more expensive than my OM-D which is a nice little piece of kit.
That’s another thing – I don’t know how big these phones are, but with the Olympus OM-D, the FZ1000, I’m able to shoot a lot more footage with a lot less equipment, so, you know, it’s a lot of flexibility for me in terms of what I want to shoot.
Another thing for me is to have enough money to get a good quality video with no noise at all. And I just don’t have enough money to use very high end equipment, you know, like a high definition camera, so I have used an Olympus OM-D for everything I’ve shot so far. And it’s still pretty good. Of course, I really need something better than that though, so it’s just one of the things.
Do you have a preference?
For me, I guess, I just want to make music
