Documentary: What Video Camera Should I Buy?
Documentary: What Video Camera Should I Buy?

Erik shows you what video cameras works best for shooting a documentary. I cover ENG cameras and camcorders as well as cinema cameras with large sensors for that shallow depth of field. A DSLR can also be used as well as a mirrorless hybrid for a second angle. Action cameras come in handy too if you need a camera in a tight location.
