An evening of ‘camera bashing’ took place at the club meeting on Wednesday 16th January. No not literally but a chance to hear from the experts on the merits, special features and affordable market choices of CAMCORDER v DSLR v OTHERS.
Howard Johnson put together a short presentation of different types of cameras illustrating pros and cons of each. This was followed by members and guests showing and talking about their own cameras, which included a wide variety of types from iPhones to bridge cameras, to DSLRs, to small camcorders, to the club prosumer Panasonic cameras, to a Canon C300 EOS cinema camera.
Altogether a very interesting and enjoyable evening. However what makes a good film does not depend on the technology, but rather a good story!
