Plus when you visit the site, you can watch video clips of camcorder tips with Dr. Video. "You can enter to win a camera, get tons of information on cameras and camcorders, including links to manufacturer's websites (without leaving HD Camera Guide). Plus you can watch Dr. Von Video. He has a PhD in HD," states Juliann Faye, HD Camera Guide spokesperson.
Actually Dr. Von Video (his full name) is a working cinematographer who travels between NY and LA shooting TV commercials, documentaries, and independent films. In between all his work, he's buying and using all the cameras he can, to stay one step ahead of technology.
With the help of his associate Professor Pixel, Dr.Video also provides video answers to questions that include: "What is Image Stabilization?" "What is a good on-board camera light?" "Why do my images have weird colors?" "What's the difference between tape, optical disk, hard drive, and solid state memory?" These are just some of the many topics discussed, along with "What to do if you drop your camcorder in the water while shooting a friend reeling in an enormous fish?" (Without the video for proof, it's nothing more than another fish story.)
www.HDCameraGuide.com began as an interactive site that makes it easy for professional HD Camera users to find the right lens for their broadcast and/or professional camera.
"As the need for an online camera and camcorder information guide grew, so did our site," added company spokesperson Faye. "Now both professionals and consumers can go to one site and access unique videos, reviews, and an enormous content base on HD camcorders and digital cameras from a wide range of companies, including Canon, Flip, JVC, Panasonic, Sanyo, Sony, and many others."
The consumer section of HD Camera Guide (www.HDCameraGuide.com) includes the monthly sweepstakes with one lucky visitor winning a camcorder or digital camera, plus reviews, how-to videos, information on a wide range of products, "by price" information, and links to all manufacturers' pages. Visitors can access them without ever leaving the site.
HD Cameras and camcorders are quickly becoming the tools of choice not just for capturing images at home and on vacation, but in general for on-line communication, including the growing trend towards video blogs and independent creative expressions that appear on sites such as YouTube, Facebook, MySpace and many others.
The professional pages of HD Camera Guide also offer a wide variety of video and text content, as well as interactive tools.
These include a camera selector by application, an HD lens selector by camera, and a teleprompter selector by camera, lens, and head.
So, try your luck and win something really useful. Some say it's the most powerful form of communication in the world: video and digital images. We'll see you at www.HDCameraGuide.com.
