Recording Devices

by Castroh » Tue Jul 11, 2017 8:17 am

As some of you know, I enjoy filming a song or two of each show and sharing it on youtube with the 70K survivors and those less fortunate who can only live vicariously through us ;). Lately, my camera has been crapping out on me and I was wondering if anyone has suggestions of a good camera that records high quality video and concert sound without being too big to carry around? They no longer sell my outdated Nikon, lol.

Also, if you'd like to check out my channel, I've been getting some decent footage since the 2012 cruise. https://www.youtube.com/user/strohca

I've been lusting after the Zoom Q2N for concert recordings.

It would be cool if somebody brought a 360 camera rig. I've seen 1 vid so far from last year.

Then we could all hunt for ourselves in the crowd, haha!

I was doing a lot of research and this looks like a great option for local shows. The biggest downside is the battery life, I don't know how I can capture all the videos I'd like on the cruise with a 40 minute battery life. Thanks for the recommendation though!

That's why you need to buy more batteries. Also carrying your charging cable and a pocket charger works too.

Where do you see 40 minute battery life? Zoom says it'll do up to 2h.
