The Flip Video camera has very important limitations. In order to get the maximum quality we can from this budget wonder of technology, it’s crucial to get close to your subject, watch your framing, be mindful of noisy environments and avoid camera shake like the devil.
As well as mastering those things, it’s also critical to be ready for important moments. Try to anticipate what will happen in the situation you are filming and be ready for moments between people that will be much more important than a well planned interview or detail shot when you go to edit. Nothing is worse than a beautifull, technical masterpiece of a film without a single poignant moment, reveal or surprise.
Good luck everyone!
