Panasonic PV-GS400 3 CCD Camcorder ? And Ways To Use It To Earn Extra Income
Let me share with you something that happened to me just the other day.
I was contacted by a guy named David. He had just purchased a panasonic pv-gs400 3 ccd camcorder and has always been attracted to the videographers lifestyle. He also liked the possibility of earning an extra income doing something that can be a whole lot of fun.
From speaking to David I discovered that he didn't have much experience with camcorders and was unsure as to whether he would be any good (he seemed to lack a bit of self confidence), but was atleast willing to learn and have a go.
He wasn't too far from where I live me so I said I was able to get in the car and have a personal meeting with him.
One of his questions to me on the phone was "what should I film?" I told him of the traditional markets - Weddings, Business videos Training videos. Good areas to get started in and the most obvious subjects to film.
David lives in a growth area, outer suburbs continually building and expanding. I found myself driving past new homes being built, young families together in parks, sporting fields and large shopping malls.
Then it dawned on me! It was so obvious the potential subjects, and clients, David had in his own backyard!
- video proof of the quality that goes into his work * satisfied customer testimonials
- club records of big games * match/play review and training tapes
- children's party videos * records of their child's achievements (academic, sporting etc.)
- local shops and businesses provide potential customers with a video of services
... and the list goes on. So if you find yourself short of ideas on what to film, have a good look around you. The answer might be right under your nose.
Now back to David. He inadvertently made a great choice in the the panasonic pv-gs400 3 ccd camcorder.
It is a great tool for providing a quality finish which will be a high priority as he will be charging for the work he does. It has 3 separate image chips which help give definition to the completed video and for such a top quality camcorder is very reasonably priced.
So with just a few more tools (tripod, lights, external microphone etc.), David is well on his way to a career (either full or part time) in video production.
