Why buy an interchangeable lens camera and how to edit it’s recorded video?

Summary: If you are still hesitate to buy an interchangeable lens camera or not, you are come to the right place, this article will be brief introduce you the the interchangeable lens camera and give the the solution on editing the video you recorded by an interchangeable lens camera in FCP, Premiere or Avid. 

What is an interchangeable lens camera?

Literally just any digital camera where the lens can be (inter)changed. So we're not counting screw-on lens adapters here, we mean proper dedicated lenses. There are two types of ILC - Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLRs) and mirrorless.

Why buy an interchangeable lens camera?

So you've decided to invest in a new digital camera and have made your mind up that you want to step up to a interchangeable lens model, but the huge range of camera on offer and endless flow of technical jargon have left you more confused than when you started? Fear not, this page will take the pain out of choosing the perfect camera for you, whether you're a seasoned shooter or a total novice.

Before we get down to business it's worth stopping for a moment to ask the question: why would anyone want an interchangeable lens camera (ILC) when fixed-lens compacts are so much smaller, lighter and more affordable? The answer can be summed up in two words: versatility and image-quality.

The versatility isn't just the fact you can change lenses and add a wide range of accessories - from basics such as flashguns and remote controls to the more specialized equipment that allow ILCs to capture anything from the tiniest bug to the most distant stars. It's also about the creative versatility offered by the more advanced controls and higher quality components.

And this leads on to the second factor; image quality. In broad daylight the quality difference between a good compact and a ILC is minimal; both will produce sharp, colorful results with little effort. But when you start to push the boundaries a bit more; shooting in low light, attempting to capture fast moving sports action or wildlife, or when you want to experiment with shallow depth of field (to add a soft background to a portrait for example), the advantage of a ILC's larger sensor and higher sensitivity start to make a big difference. An ILC can't beat a compact camera for 'pop it in the purse or pocket' convenience but for serious photography the ILC wins hands down. With prices lower than ever it's not that surprising to discover that many people own one of each.

Mirrorless ILC advantages

Smaller, lighter and usually quieter than equivalent SLR
Generally smaller and lighter lenses
Superior video operation and usually better video specification, too
Ease of use with many compact camera features (such as face detection and wide AF areas)
Electronic viewfinders often larger with greater coverage than entry-level SLR optical viewfinders
Full shooting information and menus in the (electronic) viewfinder

Mirrorless ILC disadvantages

Some mirrorless ILCs only offer contrast-detection AF

Even those mirrorless ILCs with hybrid phase-detection AF often can't quite keep up with equivalent DSLRs for subject tracking
Many electronic viewfinders still cannot match the clarity of a good optical finder (and some people just prefer optical)

Edit ILC video more smoothly

There are very many apps in the market to consider using for video editing, such as Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, Avid. They have their specific features, pros and cons as well as pricing that inform decision of any user. If you are not well informed on that, it might end up causing you confusion.

How to Enjoy Christmas Party Video on Apple TV4?

Summary: I have an Apple TV and I want to stream recorded Christmas videos into Apple TV 4- the new generation for playback but there seems to be some problem with it. Which is the best way?

Apple TV 4--the new Apple TV is missing the thing important about the future of TV. Unlike other streaming boxes, from competitors like Amazon, Roku, and Nvidia, the new Apple TV, it can’t stream “ many camcorder video to it for playback. For you who have Apple TV 4, it is really a sad news.

If you have searched the Apple TV official website, we will find that the biggest limitation of Apple TV is the lack of codec support (like Xvid, DivX, etc.) and not even having the ability to do basic surround sound like Dolby Digital 5.1. These issues were resolved almost immediately after the Apple TV was released, although the hacks were somewhat less than practical. Something as simple as getting your Apple TV to, say, sync and recognize your Christmas movie as playable was no simple feat.

Apple TV is a hot media device for us watching movies. However, just like other Apple devices it can only supports stream the camcorder recorded XAVC/XAVC S, AVCHD,  MP4, MOV, M4V videos. As you see, the most camcorder record format isn’t in the supported format list. If you wanna view camcorder recorded Christmas files on your Apple TV, the best solution is to encode/re-encode camcorder recorded Christmas files to Apple TV supported video format first.

What Should I Get Her(TV girly) for Christmas?

Summary: Christmas is coming, do you still worry about to choose a good present for her, here we give the gift for you to enjoy her.

If you want to be a good (or better) influence in her life, I would recommend taking her on outings with you-- day trips to a library, a zoo (as mentioned), an activity centre (like the YMCA for example-- you could attend a class, go for a swim), and lastly a department store, to get an idea of what she likes and has interest in, as well as provide exposure to more things/people/ideas she could develop an interest in.  You will get a better idea of what she wants for Christmas by asking her directly (and whether or not you decide to buy it for her will be up to you-- it may or may not be within your budget or appropriate-- that's a call only you can make), but you will get more clues about what she likes by going on these outings with her, and they will enhance both of your lives.

I'd take a new look at her interests instead of dismissing them. For example:

Someone who likes watching TV might have a desire and a talent for the performing arts. Maybe she could look into taking acting or singing or dancing lessons, and get involved in theatre productions. She could BE in shows instead of watching them. Learning how to get up in front of people and perform is a skill that translates into other fields as well. There are also other career avenues in the performing arts that are not performance related as well she could look at: cameraman, director, producer, sound production, makeup, etc.

Depending on your budget, you could ask her what she would like to do together, encourage her to try doing something new, as your Christmas gift to her. Now that she was interested in movies and TV, why not give her a gift enable she can be watch the TV shows and movies in any time and anywhere?
