I’ve been experimenting with video again, and made another video of the iotum Talk-Now preview. The last video I made was criticized for:
- Being overly long. This one is nearly two minutes shorter.
- Being hard to view because it was shaky. In this one, I clamped the Blackberry into a stand on my desktop, and mounted the camera on a tripod.
- Poor color and lighting. This one is much better lit. Now, the lights I used are NOT photographic lights, but rather ordinary halogen shop lights that I bought at the local hardware store. This has resulted in a yellowish cast to the video, which I believe I could remove (at shooting time) by using the color balance features of the camea.
- Poor sound. Rather than record a voice-over using the PC, as I did last time, I simply used the microphone on the camera. The sound quality is much better, even when turned away from the camera, as I was when shooting the demo sequences.
Hope you like it, and I hope you give Talk-Now a try.
