Video for Bloggers

Martin Johnson - Thursday, June 04, 2015
I'm a member of a bloggers Facebook group and there has been some interesting posts in the last few days about how bloggers can get into video. I'm no expert when it comes to blogging, but video is certainly something I understand. So this post is not about the content of a video for a blogging site. It's about how to do it ...

The next big thing

Martin Johnson - Monday, March 03, 2014
I've been shooting images on film and video for over 30 years (scary when I think about it) and was one of the many pioneers who started using the first video cameras and recorders in the early 70's to shoot news and current affairs stories on video for local television.

RODE product turns iPhone into digital audio recorder

Here's a great idea from the guys at RODE, who make great audio products. It's a lavalier mic that plugs into an iPhone that then runs an app that records digital audio. Check out the promo video which has some great uses for it. Cool. Martin Johnson (https://plus.google.com/109779213830668270857? rel=author) .. click to read full post.
