Video Tips #1

There is a learning curve to shooting good video for medical education purposes.

I’ll share with you the things I’ve learned over the years, but I certainly don’t claim to be an expert. Further, what has worked well for me won’t necessarily work as well for you.

The Camera

I’ve used a variety of cameras over the years, ranging from relatively inexpensive camcorders at 320 x 240 (in the early days), through 640 x 480 higher resolution, to Digital Video (DV) and High Definition (HD). All of them have produced usable video, but I think that the higher resolution is better for teaching purposes.
