Used Video Cameras
Professional video cameras are advanced video cameras used in the creation of moving electronic images. Although they are primarily associated with TV studios, there usage has advanced beyond this, and they are now employed for making educational videos, corporate videos, music videos etc, etc,.
Video cameras for professional use come in two styles: fixed and portable. The fixed video cameras are usually attached to studio pedestals and do not have the same capabilities for recording as that of a standard camcorder, as instead the captured images are transferred directly to another device. A portable professional video camera meanwhile, is able to record images. These video cameras are significantly larger than consumer grade video cameras, and have to be carried on the camerapersonâ??s shoulder.
Video cameras for professional use the same standard recording technology â?? an optical prism behind the lens which separates the colors it picks up into primary colors, and directs them to an active pixel sensor or charge-couple device. The signal picked up by these sensors is then amplified and encoded into a signal that both monitor outputs and the viewfinder can read.
ENG (Electronic News Gathering) video cameras are the most commonly used in producing videos, although EFP (Electronic Field Production) video cameras are sometimes preferred for outdoor use. Both of these professional video camera types are designed to be carried on the shoulder, although a tripod can be used when more stability is required.
