Capturing video for blogs/podcasts

video

I find that the video function of my stills camera (Fujifilm Finepix F30) is sufficient for capturing small videos (like above) for blogs or podcasting. No need to buy another cheap video camera if you already have a digital camera that will do the job! My Finepix records in AVI which makes it easy to edit in Windows Movie Maker. Many cheap little video cameras record mp4 files that are easier to edit on the Macs in iMovie.

This was one which I did with a Sony Stills Camera at the MoLeNET podcasting event in Taunton.

Hi Lilian,

Just bought a Sanyo Xacti HD700 for around £300, does high def 720p (probably a little excessive for video podcasting!) and works really well in iMovie 08.
