[Video] Choosing a Video Camera

Steve Garfield talks about choosing a camera for producing online video. Cameras reviewed include the Creative Webcam, Panasonic FX 37, Flip, iPhone 3GS and Kodak Zi8. Microphone reviewed was the Brando flexible mini capsule Microphone.

Creative, Flip, Kodak, Nokia and XShot loaned me their products to review. Panasonic gave me the FX 37. I bought the iPhone 3GS as an upgrade the an iPhone that I won in a contest sponsored by the now defunct Boston NOW newspaper. I purchased the Brando Microphone and the Audio Technica ATR 3550 lav mic.
