Before you buy a camera…

By Paul Santiago

Welcome to the Wedding Video Boss Podcast, I am your host, Paul Santiago and today we are going to talk about the important questions you need to ask yourself when it comes to choosing the right Camera for you!

“Money spent on good-quality gear is always money well spent.”

― Tahir Shah, In Search of King Solomon’s Mines

“The less gear you use, the more you grow as a photographer. Although there are fewer options available, you’ll find more creative ways to capture what you feel! In a way, all your technical options before turn into creative solutions that improve your photography even more.”

― Marius Vieth – Photographer, author

Finding the right camera is vital to what kind of story you have to tell. Here are 10 questions that I actually want to answer with you.

  1. Lens Options
  2. Dynamic Range?
  3. Low Light capabilities?
  4. Recording Format?
  5. Camera’s Longevity?
  6. What Type of Cards Does It Take?
  7. Is It Practical for My Shooting Situations?
  8. What Is the Audio Situation?
  9. Can It Output Footage?
  10. What Is the Crop Factor?

Most commonly used cameras for wedding videography

  1. Panasonic gh5 –
  2. Sony A7R III –
  3. Canon 5D Mark 4 –
  4. Canon C100 Mark 2 –

If you’re just starting out, you don’t have to go all out. Test out the waters first. The price of the camera doesn’t guarantee great footage. Make sure to put this in mind: resale value, store locations, and service proximity & service quality.
