Three Reasons of buying a camcorder

You see, men's tastes are various. Some people like reading, some like travelling while others like making movies/videos. The truth is, not every one of them has owned a camcorder, but they do posse some kind of devices capable of recording videos, such as smartphones(iPhone 4S/5, HTC One, Galaxy S4, etc) and tablets(iPad 4/2, new iPad, etc)and more. The remarkable thing is that the quality of the videos recorded by those gadgets isn't not bad--sometimes it is extremely sharp & high-definition. So, here is the question: do we still need to buy a standlone camcorder(Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10,Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3, etc) since we have already owned something capable of doing the "job"? Does it make sense to get a camcorder?
Actually, it is really a personal choice when comes to the purchasing a camcorder. However, we do find out three reasons for owning a camcorder.
1. Video Quality.
Yes, we have to admit that some smartphones or tablets shoot videos in not bad quality. This is why so many people decided to abandoned camcorders and jumped onto those video-capable devices bandwagon. More and more smartphones are coming up like mushrooms, claiming to offer "superior video quality". However, after professional tests on a camcorder and a smartphone, we can easily find that a high-end camcorder provides much better video performance than a so-called all-in-one smartphone. In fact, this result isn't surprising at all. When comparing a cheap camcorder with an ordinary camera, there is slight difference on the quality of recorded videos. However, a camcorder still excel a camera at the same price range, because most camcorders will have more video recording options as well as the video editing software, helping users to upload video clips to websites such as Facebook or YouTube. Tips: Without any doubt, the built-in editing function in a camcorder cannot measure up to te professional editing systems like iMovie/Final Cut Pro, therefore, if you would like to make the video clips more attractive, it is the best to edit them in the professional editors. For example, get a 4K camcorder, then convert 4K xavc video to mov for editing with final cut pro.
2. Internal Memory
By "camcorder", we mean the one that records on flash memory or a built-in hard drive. Of course, there may be another one memory card slot used to record additional video content. Generally speaking, the memory capacity of a smartphone or tablet isn't quite large. Let's say, the iPhone 5 has not card slot and it provides 1 GB RAM, 16/32/64GB storage at the most. The point is, when you are shooting large amounts of videos especially the HD video , you will be driven crazy by swapping cards or transferring the recorded videos to a computer before continue shooting. No one can bear it, right? As to a camcorder, you won't have that trouble since it provides a very large storage capacity.
3. The Audio
Obviously, a camcorder records audio in better quality than a smartphone or tablet does. The reason lies in the built-in mics they used. Almost all traditional camcorders have got the good quality built-in stereo microphones, but there are some that go above and beyond by including 5.1-channel Dolby Digital microphones instead. While on the other hand, a smartphone will usually use the tiny monaural mics, resulting in bad audio quality. Notes: you can adjust the audio volume by using certain software, for example, when import AVCHD to Final Cut Pro with the help of third-party video converter, you can use the built-in editing features to customize the audio freely.
So, we think it worthy buying a camcorder. What is your idea?

iMovie VS Windows Movie Maker get more close with them

Video post production or we may say extension editing is always a very important issue. There are lots of editing systems available for choices, some people would like to purchase the favorite one based on their actual need while others prefer to use the built-in video editing programs on the computer. As we know, Micrsoft and Apple, the two major computers brands have their own editing software-Windows Movie Maker and iMovie installed on the computers correspondingly. The funny thing is, we will see many people discussing about these two editors and also make a comparison. In my opinion, it doesn't make much sense for the comparison, if any, it will probably like the following.
Currently, there are piles of video editing software on the market. Some people may get loss easily. In fact, they are pretty much the same thing. As for Windows Movie Maker and iMovie, both of them have got a viewing screen or two, a time line, effects preset and file navigation. That means, as long as you own certain editing experience, you are able to switch between these systems flexibly. What you need the most is practicing to gain the familiarity of each one.
Honestly, I love Windows movie Maker because it is quite simple and easy to understand. When comes to iMovie? Eeeeee....I don't know. There was a time that I needed to import sony hdr m2ts to imovie for post editing, it took me almost half a day to finish the job. Of course, I spent a little time on fixing the format incompatibility issue, but my point is, iMoive is great with many cool features, but I just cannot get my head around it sometimes. Different from much editing software, iMovie has only one channel for the video and the audio/effects/effects is not set in a time line but a block instead. Whereas Windows Movie Maker...it has two separate channels, one for the vidoe and one for the audio coming with the video, besides, it also has got extra audio track (for backing music or overdubbing) and then a track for your transitions/effects. Tips: to import some recorded videos like AVCHD MTS to Windows Movie Maker for editing, the key point is to convert the MTS to WMM acceptable video format via the third-party software called Windows Movie Maker Converter or MTS to WMV converter developed by Doremisoft.
iMovie Pros: 1.sleek and sexy; 2.Easy importing & exporting features; 3. cool features available; 4.Scrubbing tool works really well to find clips
Windows Movie Maker Pros: 1. simple, easy operation; 2.Clear presentation of tools; 3. Time line feature; 4.Easy importing & exporting features.
iMovie Cons:: 1. run on Mac; 2. there is no timeline.
Windows Movie Maker Cons:: 1. run on Windows; 2. there is Not many thrills and spills.
In conclusion, I think both of them have got advantages and disadvantages, what matter the most is that which one can really meet all your demands—kind of preference thing.

How to Play YouTube FLV Videos Offline

As the global leader of video-sharing website, YouTube has brought us much convenience and abundance. It seems that we can find almost all we want there: music, video, news, information, etc. The number of YouTube monthly active users has reached to over 1 billion. Besides, more than 6 billion hours of video are watched each month on YouTube—that's almost an hour for every person on Earth. With so many people hanging there, sometimes, it's not as smooth as we expected to enjoy YouTube FLV videos online. Alternatively, it is a good idea to download and play the videos offline.
It is always easier said than done. Here are the questions asked by some people:
1. "Can someone tell me what's a .flv file and how to either make it into a .avi file and playable in Windows Movie Maker or simply to make it playable. I got a cool little application called download helper, but everything it saves for me is in .flv and I have no clue what to do?". 2. "I just got some YouTube videos(in .flv format), I cannot figure out the right way to play them on my smart phone (Sony Xperia). Please help!". 3. "How can I play YouTube FLV videos on iPhone 5 please?"
Well, before we get started, it's necessary to have a glance at what FLV format is. FLV, short for Flash Video, is a video format used to deliver videos over the Internet using Adobe Flash Player 6/7/8/9. FLV content may also be embedded within SWF files. Currently, there are some brand websites using the FLV file format which include: YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo! Video, MySpace and Reuters.com.
Basically, an FLV file can be opened or played by some programs natively such as Adobe's Flash Player (version 7 and later), RealPlayer, VLC, MPlayer, and other popular media players. Besides, Adobe Premiere Pro can support the editing of FLV file well. However, if you would like to play an FLV file on other programs such as Windows Movie Maker, QuickTime or portable mobile devices like Sony Xperia, it is a must to convert the FLV file to another file type. For example, transfer FLV to Xperia friendly video format like MP4, convert FLV to AVI for Windows Movie Maker, etc. In addition, Apple devices like iPhone 5 has also turned down the support for Adobe Flash Player, that is why iPhone users cannot play the FLV files since they have to use iTunes to manage their media data. In light of this, there is nothing we can do but to import YouTube videos to iTunes before trasferring FLV files to iPhone, iPad, iPod, etc. That is to say, we need to convert FLV to M4V to make YouTube FLV videos acceptable by iTunes.
To solve all of the problems above, a professional and easy-to-use third-party program is enough. Doremisoft FLV Video Converter is the recommendable software specializing in handling the FLV file issues perfectly. The process of conducting the conversion is as easy as eating a pie, which goes like this: import FLV video file--set output format--edit the video optionally--start to convert.
