It’s all about level control: the level (volume) on your mic, as well as the recording volume on your camcorder. You could be overloading the input on the camera with a high level coming out of your Zoom. The camera probably also has an internal level control that possibly should be reduced to allow for optimal sound recording.
If you’re buying into a system, or don’t have a huge investment in lenses and accessories, the first thing I’d recommend doing is identifying which lenses you’d like to have in your bag and factoring those prices into your decision. You may find that spending a bit more on a body is worth it if lenses you’re going to buy are significantly less than the competition.
Look, this Linnnzi digital camera only snaps 12-megapixel pictures and it only has a digital-zoom option. (Optical zoom changes lens positioning without sacrificing clarity; digital “zoom” simply enlarges the pixels, creating the appearance of a closer shot, but really is just sacrificing image quality.) And its battery life isn’t great. But guess what? Most kids don’t care about CMOS sensor quality and focal lengths; they care about snapping lots of funny pictures, and the simple design of this camera allows a youngster to do that without assistance from mom or dad. Also, this thing is waterproof down to three meters and won’t break if dropped from several feet off the ground, so you won’t be throwing money away when you hand it over to your aspiring Ansel Adams.
Well good work getting into the world of DSLR photography, it’s a nice step up from point and shoots and I’m sure you’ll have fun. The great thing about DSLR’s is that there a tone of different options available, especially at budget prices. For starters, you could look at an older DSLR like the Nikon D3100. I used this DSLR when I started out and it’s a great entry level camera.

In late 2008, a new type of camera emerged called mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera (MILC), which uses various sensors and offers lens interchangeability. These are simpler and more compact than DSLRs due to not having a lens reflex system. MILC camera models are available with various sensor sizes including: a small 1/2.3 inch sensor, as is commonly used in bridge cameras such as the original Pentax Q (more recent Pentax Q versions have a slightly larger 1/1.7 inch sensor); a 1-inch sensor; a Micro Four Thirds sensor; an APS-C sensor such as the Sony NEX series, Fujifilm X series, Pentax K-01, and Canon EOS M; and some, such as the Sony α7, use a full frame (35 mm) sensor and even Hasselblad X1D is the first medium format MILC. Some MILC cameras have a separate electronic viewfinder. In other cameras the back display is used as a viewfinder in same way as in compact cameras. A disadvantage of MILC compared to DSLR is battery life due to the energy consumption of the electronic viewfinder.[27]
Common values for field of view crop in DSLRs using active pixel sensors include 1.3x for some Canon (APS-H) sensors, 1.5x for Sony APS-C sensors used by Nikon, Pentax and Konica Minolta and for Fujifilm sensors, 1.6 (APS-C) for most Canon sensors, ~1.7x for Sigma’s Foveon sensors and 2x for Kodak and Panasonic 4/3-inch sensors currently used by Olympus and Panasonic. Crop factors for non-SLR consumer compact and bridge cameras are larger, frequently 4x or more.
The first photographic camera developed for commercial manufacture was a daguerreotype camera, built by Alphonse Giroux in 1839. Giroux signed a contract with Daguerre and Isidore Niépce to produce the cameras in France,[27] with each device and accessories costing 400 francs.[28] The camera was a double-box design, with a landscape lens fitted to the outer box, and a holder for a ground glass focusing screen and image plate on the inner box. By sliding the inner box, objects at various distances could be brought to as sharp a focus as desired. After a satisfactory image had been focused on the screen, the screen was replaced with a sensitized plate. A knurled wheel controlled a copper flap in front of the lens, which functioned as a shutter. The early daguerreotype cameras required long exposure times, which in 1839 could be from 5 to 30 minutes.[27][29]
They’re actually pretty different beasts (barring the obvious fact that both record video). A video camera is larger than a GoPro; and has a lens that can zoom, where a GoPro has a fixed focal length. The GoPro’s lens is also very wide angle to get as much of a scene as possible, but that makes it pretty poor at interviews because you have to get it uncomfortably close to your subject. It’s totally doable, but kinda weird. A video camera will also have a longer battery life than a GoPro, and have more manual controls for tweaking how you record. It will also (probably) record better footage in low light.
More recent devices capable of recording video are camera phones and digital cameras primarily intended for still pictures; the term “camcorder” may be used to describe a portable, self-contained device, with video capture and recording its primary function, often having advanced functions over more common cameras.
This isn’t something we directly looked at, so I can’t speak to with full certainty. I believe that you can monitor the output over HDMI while recording to SD card, but it won’t be a clean video feed out, it’ll probably show a duplicate of what’s on the touch screen of the Panasonic.
For decades, the DSLR (digital SLR) has been the top choice for anyone who wants to take their photography to the next level. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, a DSLR offers three key ingredients: manual controls, excellent picture quality and interchangeable lenses.
The Leaf shutter or more precisely the in-lens shutter is a shutter contained within the lens structure, often close to the diaphragm consisting of a number of metal leaves which are maintained under spring tension and which are opened and then closed when the shutter is released. The exposure time is determined by the interval between opening and closing. In this shutter design, the whole film frame is exposed at one time. This makes flash synchronisation much simpler as the flash only needs to fire once the shutter is fully open. Disadvantages of such shutters are their inability to reliably produce very fast shutter speeds ( faster than 1/500th second or so) and the additional cost and weight of having to include a shutter mechanism for every lens.

You may not think that you’ll be doing a lot of nighttime shooting, but it doesn’t take much of a dip in light levels for low-light performance to become important. Recording a birthday party at night, indoors? Or a family dinner? Off trick or treating? Or the ubiquitous school play? In all these cases, you need a video camera that will still deliver smooth motion and clean footage, where you can see all the details of what’s going on around you.
Oh yeah, compared to that, either the Panasonic main pick, or the Canon R500/R600 should provide major improvements to resolution. Any modern camera should be able to record 1080p video, where your old Canon was limited to just 1020*680 or there abouts, which is a much smaller video. That should create a video that’s much easier to read.
Vlogging isn’t just about making visually beautiful videos—it’s also about sound. The internal microphones on cameras are notoriously bad, which means that if you’re going to take your vlogging seriously, you’re going to want an external mic.
We didn’t test the W570, so it’s difficult to say for sure. Based on the fact that it has a relatively small sensor (smaller than the R600), my guess would be that you’d see worse low light performance than the Canon R600, but stabilization on par with the higher end Panasonic V770. But, like I said, we didn’t test it, so hard to know with real certainty.
In January 2008, Silicon Image announced a new technology for sending video from mobile devices to a television in digital form. MHL sends pictures as a video stream, up to 1080p resolution, and is compatible with HDMI.[51]
Note: While the Canon R50’s built-in 8GB of memory is questionable, you failed to mention that the R50 also has wifi connectivity. These two features combined make the $100 price difference between the R500 and R50 a little more reasonable.
Most earlier digital camera backs used linear array sensors, moving vertically to digitize the image. Many of them only capture grayscale images. The relatively long exposure times, in the range of seconds or even minutes generally limit scan backs to studio applications, where all aspects of the photographic scene are under the photographer’s control.
In the earliest analog camcorders the imaging device is vacuum-tube technology, in which the charge of a light-sensitive target was directly proportional to the amount of light striking it; the Vidicon is an example of such an imaging tube. Newer analog, and digital camcorders use a solid-state charge-coupled imaging device (CCD) or a CMOS imager. Both are analog detectors, using photodiodes to pass a current proportional to the light striking them. The current is then digitised before being electronically scanned and fed to the imager’s output. The main difference between the two devices is how the scanning is done. In the CCD the diodes are sampled simultaneously, and the scan passes the digitised data from one register to the next. In CMOS devices, the diodes are sampled directly by the scanning logic.
