As videographers we get asked all the time how hard is to do video podcasts and what are the best tools to use. Here is a video that we took at Podcamp Boston 2009 from a presentation with Steve Garfield (stevegarfield.com), Karen Rubin and Mike Volpe (Hubspot) where they talk about all the various tools and setups they use for video podcasting. Their advice is simple, start with what you have and see how that works first. The important thing is to just start. Notes from the presentation are below the video.
This is a presentation at Podcamp Boston 2009 by Steve Garfield, Karen Rubin and Mike Volpe on tools used for video podcasting. Mike and Karen from Hubspot show their set up that they use for their weekly live video podcast. Steve explains why they need two completely independent systems for the show. Look for video cameras that have a jack for an external microphone.
Lighting is important and you can get inexpensive lights from stores like Home Depo or Target. Steve talks about using natural lighting and Karen gives a few tips for positioning the camera and the subject for the best results. Qik.com is also mentioned for streaming video live over the web.
