Apple Launches 16 ‘Shoot with iPhone’ Videos

If you own an iPhone 7 and want to learn how to make great videos, Apple has a new web site designed to help you. There are a series of short, to-the-point videos covering topics such as taking portraits, closeup, without flash, action shots, one-handed selfie, and more.

It’s a slick, well-produced site with a gorgeous landing video. Below that video is a grid for the 16 videos the company has so far released for the series. Hover over one of those cells and the name of the video is replaced by an example of the kind of photo the video will teach you about.

Flash Memory Camcorders vs Hard Drive Camcorders

Are flash memory camcorders better than hard drive camcorders?  Well, that depends on what you want out of your camcorder.

 Flash camcorders come in High Definition (HD) models as do hard drive camcorders.

Flash camcorders compress their video whereas hard drive camcorders do not, so hard drives preserve a higher quality video. However, what I’ve read in reviews, you’d hardly be able to tell the difference in quality between the two.

Hard drives have moving parts, which make them more likely to break if the camera is dropped or treated roughly.

Flash memory camcorders, on the other hand, are one solid unit with no moving parts, which makes them more rugged and shock-resistant than hard drives.

Hard drives also won’t work above a certain altitude, usually around 10,000 feet above sea level. So this is a major consideration if you plan to go hiking or mountain climbing with the camera.

The primary advantage of the hard drive is that it can hold more footage. However, once the hard drive fills up, that’s it. Unless you can download the footage off your camera onto a computer or external hard drive, you’re out of luck. However, with a flash memory card, you can swap out the card with another empty card and keep shooting. The problem is that flash cards can be pricey.

Importance of Quality Lenses

When comparing hard drives and flash memory, there are other considerations.  Lensesplay a big part in capturing quality video footage. A flash camcorder with a good lens will probably look better than a hard drive model with a poor lens.

TIP! When buying a high definition camcorder, make sure to check what kind of recording format it uses and make sure it’s compatible with your computer video editing software.

For example, camcorders with hard drives and flash drives use a format called AVCHD, which is not compatible with HDV editing software, a tape-based format. So, if you have edited in the past using mini-dv tapes and you are looking to purchase a hard drive camcorder, be aware that your video editing software may no longer be compatible.

Hard drives provide higher quality and more recording space for less cost that flash drives. However, hard drives are more prone to getting damaged and are useless at high altitudes.
