It really does not matter how old you are, where you are in your life or whether you’re looking to turn your interest in videography into a part-time opportunity to make some extra money or to pursue a full-time new career, opportunities exist for all.
There has never been a better time to get involved with digital video. Just a few years ago, it was true that only those individuals who were technologically minded could hope to comprehend the workings of a digital video camera, today nothing could be further from the truth. Most of the camcorders on the market today are very easy to operate with automatic modes that make it simple for even a novice to point and shoot.
Editing, too, has become much simpler. With the improvements and easy of use additions to digital video camera technology, it is now incredibly simple to create a high quality digital video with very little time and effort. If you’ve held back from getting involved in the digital video industry in the past because of concern that you don’t know enough about technology to succeed, I to assure you that there is no longer any reason to be intimidated.
In addition, it is no longer expensive to get started with your own digital videography business. When digital video cameras were first released a few years ago, it is true that they were pricey. Today the cost of a quality camcorder has dropped significantly and you can get a good piece of equipment from a reputable dealer, on eBay for under $1000. Panasonic even make several 3 CCD models (broadcast quality) in that price range and below.
In just the last few years, many people have, unfortunately, learned that a college education does not always guarantee a good job nor the opportunity to make a decent living. In today’s uncertain economic times, you must forge your own way and guarantee your own success.
With the rapidly decreasing pricing of digital video equipment and the rapidly increasing interest in video information products, there has never been a better time to guarantee your future by participating in the numerous opportunities available in digital video production.
