When we talk about Carl Zeiss, we mean the word “Legend.” Indeed, thanks to the optics of the company, the world’s first man stepped on the moon was photographed. All Hollywood movies go through Carl Zeiss optics, and Google Earth cameras take pictures of the surface of the earth with ZEISS lenses. Thanks to the company’s microscopes, medical scientists discerned red blood cells and received the Nobel Prize.
“When you write a story with light and shadow. When you feel the fullness of life by each cell. When a new life is born in the world. At this moment, we are working for you. ”

In this part of the article we will talk about what characteristics of modern video cameras should be taken into account when choosing, as well as try to answer the most frequently asked questions.

After all, if you want to watch your video on a regular TV with a diagonal of 21 ”, then we can confidently say that an HD video camera will be a useless purchase for you, all the charms of high-definition video will be“ killed ”by an inappropriate viewing device.

Another thing is if you have an LCD or plasma TV with a relatively large diagonal – here high-definition video reveals its advantages. Continue reading
In recent years, the choice of a digital video camera has become an increasingly difficult task: the number of models and formats has been increasing and continues to grow, more and more rapidly: miniDV, MPEG-2, DVD, HDD, Flash, HDV, MPEG4, AVCHD, SD, HD .. From all this, the head can really get sick. But I want to approach the choice of a video camera consciously, having at least a minimal idea of all this diversity. This article is intended to provide the minimum necessary information about the variety of formats and features of modern household video cameras and what are the advantages and disadvantages of each of them. Immediately make a reservation that in this article we will not consider the video mode of digital cameras, as well as various “hybrid” photo-video cameras – a separate article in the series will be devoted to them. Here we focus on the “classic” video cameras (although the very concept – the “classic video camera” – is “blurring” at a fairly fast pace, but still …). And we will start by examining the basic “types” and “classes” of modern digital video cameras. Continue reading
