You want to use a real camera and not your mobile phone?

Sounds like a plan. The benefits are that you will more often get a much better image and have far more control over how it looks, the focus, and color balance. You’ll also have longer lasting batteries and more functionality than with a mobile device. If you’re planning on setting up shop in one spot and shooting your content there regularly, than a real video camera is going to be your best bet.

These 3 options below are bundles, which means you will not only get the camera but also batteries, media storage cards, lights, mics, tripods and a case for one price!
