I get asked a fair bit about what kind of video camera should small businesses buy on a budget to do things like these video blogs or video posts or just to relay some video info about their company.

I understand that people want to do it themselves and I think that’s a good idea. I don’t think it’s a good idea to invest in expensive gear. You can spend a lot of money on a video camera, you can spend a lot of money on the gear around that.

The truth is the best camera you have that you can get is the one that you have on you. And so a smart phone, a Samsung Galaxy or an iPhone is gonna be, gonna really do the trick. It’s got a lot of the features that you’re gonna probably want in a video camera anyway, and the automation makes it very easy to use.

So before you go spending money on buying your video camera, unless you’re really sure you’re gonna spend a lot of money, you’ve got someone who knows how to use it or is happy to learn how to use it, definitely look at using your smartphone instead of buying, lashing out and buying things.
