IMA Final Project: Minolta SRT102 Review

Finally! A review devoted to a camera!

Well, I mean, it’s not exactly what I had in mind, but it is a review nonetheless. If anything, it shows that you can create decent video with an entry-level DSLR. But I digress…

For this video, I used a Nikon D3300 and a Nikon 18-200mm DX lens, Audacity for the monologue, and Videopad with the NCH software for the video editing. Since I didn’t have the time or the resources for Premiere, I used freeware instead and I am all the better off. Let’s just hope that Premiere doesn’t come back around to bite me later. But back to the task at hand.

Most of what is in the video was shot on the same day. Little planning was used (except for a rudimentary script), and my expectations were low for the final result. However, I am impressed with my “presenter” (whom I will leave as nameless per request) for putting up with my “one more take” line. It’s rough for both parties when you aren’t sure of what you are doing, but hey, it’s my first time making this kind of video!

And now I can be done with it!

Sidenote: Yes, I noticed the copyright logo and I have no idea how to fix it. Considering that is on multiple websites with different users posting it though, I think the legal issue is null and void. I just want to say though, if the photographer reads this, I get it when people steal images. I’ve had mine stolen and… that’s not a justification for what I’ve done. But I will definitely credit you here: THIS VOLVO PICTURE IS FROM “VOLVERE.FI”. I DID NOT TAKE OR MAKE THIS PHOTO.
