Hi everyone. I don't usually post to this sub-forum on here but I really want to get a bit more on my current set-up for making guitar play through videos. As of right now I am using a Muvi K2 NPNG action camera to shoot my video, along with iMovie for editing. I don't have or use anything else. Here is a link to a video I have shot: Its lighter than some of my other videos (good time of day, good window), but my other videos are very dark and un-impressivley so. Things that I have been looking into are: 1) getting a tripod for the Muvi Camera (I don't know why I don't have one already--and the Mrs. is getting sick of shooting the video). I think I can get any standard Tripod, as the camera comes with a mount attachment. The company (veho) sells one, a duopod or whatever it is called--but it looks too small to be of any help. 2) getting some soft box lights, or any lighting at all. I know nothing about this. Should I get 5 bulb lights, or just single bulb lights. I was looking at the Limo 700 watt stuff: https://www.walmart.com/ip/LimoStud...trategy=TIC&visitor_id=TNf5S1RZjXw33OGB3xgvAg and also these things here: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-5...0001&campid=5338014327&icep_item=171328976178 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MUBRDZM/?tag=sevenstringorg-20 I don't know what is garbage or if its all junk, or if some of these are good. I know a lot about gear, but nothing about this type of gear! 3) I was also thinking about upgrading from iMovie to Final Cut Pro X. 4) And have been curious about using a Green Screen as well ( I don't know if I am mature enough to achieve a non-cheesy green screen video, but I'd prefer to use it for good, and not for evil cheese--like this stuff: ) Otherwise, I really don't know anything about this stuff at all. Maybe at some point I will get a Canon EOS Rebel T6 camera, like this pack here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MQIFINS/?tag=sevenstringorg-20 But only because someone said "Canon DSLR is what you need". If my camera (Muvi K2 NPNG) is okay enough to use, then I'd just assume stick with that until I can really afford a nice upgrade. My dilemma is that I don't really know what gear is good or not. I'm not trying to cheap out on my setup--but I'd like to improve it without going too crazy. Also, my birthday is coming up and I might be able to convince my brothers to go in on a soft box light package if its not too expensive (~$60 - ~$80 USD -- that's likely what I'm worth). Otherwise I really don't know what to even consider. Like I said, I know 'negative zero' when it comes to this stuff. So any helpful hints or tips or suggestions for products that you find to be reliable would be greatly appreciated! Help me make some strides towards better guitar videos! Thanks for reading all this!
