RISMEDIA, June 28, 2011—When it comes to shooting video, being quick on the trigger can have its downside. We all know those so-called Kodak moments can appear in a split second, and there’s no substitute for having the camcorder ready to roll. But anticipating what’s about to happen can pay great rewards, because you can have the camera rolling slightly ahead of schedule. That’s important for at least three reasons.
First, if you’re using a camera that records on moving video tape it gives the tape time to mechanically get up to speed, even if just for a few milliseconds. Next, if for some reason your camera is not in the proper mode to record, you’ll know it instantly. And finally, if you plan on editing your video tape into a final production, allowing two to three seconds of lead time at both the beginning and the end will allow for a clean, smooth edit of every segment. A little planning ahead can make a big difference in the final product!
