Beginners basic questions: XH-A1, PC equipment, cutting



Frage von Peter Storm:
Januar 2008

Hello, I'm new here and would like to begin with the shooting.

I have been photographing for over 40 years and I do very well equipped. Photography and photo editing with Photoshop are not a problem for me. As with target Reiseveanstalter Scotland we want to now synonymous films in our Internet presence Scotland.de adjust and otherwise synonymous filming.

My movie experience is already about 20-30 years back (Super8, 16mm SW, analog video). Further, I have experience with many demonstrations of the boring holiday videos with some 10-minute uninterrupted round-and-Her-pans.

I want in about 3 weeks a Canon XH-A1 Buy. The first trip, on which the camera should be used, but starting in about 6 weeks. Therefore, I now have a plan to launch it.

Shooting can I learn during the trip. There will be plenty of time s.Anfang and yes it needs still to be not perfect.

What do I need, but beyond the actual camera?

Makes sense are sure to replace batteries. Can I get the Charger synonymous s.110V stöpseln?

Is the built-in Microphone? One reads again and again of how extra microphones Rode or Sennheiser. I want to film landscapes and events, no concerts, no interviews, but the original sounds of the events, like parades, shows, animal noises, etc.

Tripod, I have only once from the cameras, but how necessary is the windfall? Can the Camera synonymous in hand or on car roofs, walls etc shore of hand? Is eventually. synonymous easy Monopod?

S.PC What is needed? Is a simple office PC with just under 3 GHz, 1 GB Ram, Graphics card: Rage 128 Pro. Screen: 1600x 1200, 22 "LCD for photo editing calibrated Firewire input? How do I transfer the data of the mini-DV tape to the PC?

The office PC is always free at night and there is no space for another device. Helps possibly the replacement of the graphics card for up to 100 ¬?

The editing program I would like to rest after the trips to choose, but in earlier times, the movies, whether the synonymous "what have become". How do I do this before? Do I need a special graphics card? How do I play the movies in raw condition?

During the breaks, I will lead a normal laptop with Firewire inputs are.

What else should I consider?

Thank you for the indulgence with these issues



Antwort von Axel:

Whether the office computer is good, I can not tell you. HDV is already some requirements s.den processor.
Personal Recommendation: Tripod, with external Micro Spider (much to read in the section XH A1).
A software to use the fullscreen mode (optional, but definitely nicer) can handle.
On all other issues a blanket: No problem, the manual will be clarified. Charger funzt synonymous with 110 V.
Have fun, exactly the right choice for you in this price class.

Take still predict plenty of time to get with the Camera and its countless settings represent. Especially the XH-A1 seems - is filming in automatic mode with the factory-set parameters - a rather unterdurchschnittliches result. Read in any case the very detailed information under Articles www.fxsupport.de through (especially the important "presets").
Alternatively, you could obviously synonymous, instead of yourself with the whole movie work burden, a cameraman to carry out the Scotland fan and between Gretna Green and the Shetland Islands quite a lot about ...

No, rather not. Especially if you want to capture animal noises, are you with the built-Micro (applies to all cameras) is not far.

In any case, tripod use, whenever you can. Scotland, I know myself pretty good (a dream ...), that means: lots of scenery, lots of views ... HD is already more sensitive than SD, which is the quiet camera work is concerned. Therefore: Tripod is MUST.
A good rain, plus a windbreak for the Micro are required ... in four seasons s.einem days ;-)

Your PC extends the power of her good, the graphics card seems a little weak. Must not be hi-end, with 100 euro You come loose from.

Geht leider nicht. Apart from the fun factor leads to the film to the many points at the first site visit, for example rental properties, special events, special scenery, etc. So what we always have the representation of the offer need. This can in three months which is totally different.

Furthermore, we want to March in the U.S., where we have approximately 22 years for some time have lived and followed our earlier tracks. Also for this reason these hectic now.
