I want to vlog badly, but…

… i suck with making videos. No, seriously. I already created a ton of family videos and from time to time i need to realize i screw up something. It’s either the focus or the lighting. If neither, it’s the sound. I didn’t really gave up on this, but with seriously limited free time, it’s a hard job to experiment and learn. The funny thing is that there are a ton of tutorials out there about how to make proper videos and many of them state stuff like “even your mobile phone can do it”, etc. but the reality is, it’s not that easy. No at all. Even if you know the theory, something will be screwed up – in most cases the lighting/shadows, unless you move around the house with a set of softboxes attached to your chest pointing towards your face or something 😀

Why I am talking about this? Oh well, it’s a long story, but turned out that after my first child was born I really became a video nut. Right to the point where i realized that my semi-professional Canon digital camera is rotting on a shelf, because I stopped making photos. The next idea was obviously that I should turn the site into a Youtube channel or something. But apparently I just can’t do it. Yet. 😉

Let’s assume for a second that I get over my idiotism and happen to make proper videos without unwanted shadows, grains, shaky hands, whatever. I still need a proper man-cave… erm… I mean study room, where the kids can’t just randomly enter screaming and shouting, forcing me to re-record the current video. At this point this is missing too. Oh well, #FirstWorldProblems, right? 🙂

Anyway, back to videos for a second… If any of the readers happen to be experienced with video cameras, would you be so kind to recommend me something that does not cost a fortune, provides decent image quality and enables me to attach an external microphone? I don’t really expect too many answers for this, but thanks in advance! 🙂
