If you want that effect you’ll want to take the camera farther for better composition as well as more angles, he says.
Lately several popular webcams have been selling for $20,000 to $40,000 each. Most of the “grips” on these cameras are fairly expensive, so we’ll take a closer look at one of the more expensive models you never heard of. CameraLens is a model number “09” at the manufacturers’ website . There are also cameras with the company model name of H-L-R. These are the same models mentioned above, and they can be bought as well for the same price. With them you can purchase a very compact video camera with a compact grip, so you’ll have the opportunity to make good quality photos without even the need for a tripod. There are several reviews on YouTube of these types of cameras and their reviews have to do with their user-friendly controls and quality of pictures.
You can buy a tripod for this camera for about $10 to $15 at a store that sells them and is willing to give you a referral. They’ll send you a tripod if you don’t have one already. Unfortunately most stores aren’t very kind and they’ll also refuse to ship when there was nothing in stock. If you use an item that’s no longer available, then it might be of interest to a local store that can ship to you.
Here is a photo that I took of this camera’s body and the tripod mount:
The only thing that really needs to be mentioned here is the color display panel between the camera and the screen. It’s not a really important feature, and it will be seen by your viewers looking at your web page. The important part is the white circle above the lens, and if you watch a lot of people click and try and enlarge the pictures they will notice it and wonder why there is a white circle. This is one of the reasons we like our videos simple
My video setup will have a standard video output of 720p HD (the lowest resolution of all the cameras’ models, see below) and I’ll also have an on-screen LCD displaying the image of the webcam. The camera and the web page will run separate videos and audio so a link to the video will open right under the camera. The video (at least from what I know) will look much better than my images taken by the same camera. Also, I’m sure this will improve the color of the web page and even the quality of the pictures.
This is one of the many variations of the H-L-R model with the same white circle above the lens. I’ll be using the first version of this camera because the photo above is the model number “10” and the web page will be the model number “06.” That second version of the camera has a separate and separate battery, a large LCD panel on top of the lens, a single SD card slot, a microphone, a large rear-facing camera, and a larger lens than the earlier version. I haven’t tested these models and they might also work well for you.
The picture on the web page of the camera will be much nicer than the image I took. In fact it may look better than the picture on my camera. If you make any comparison of the two, use the first version. Most of the cameras will still display a huge white circle below the lens. If you make any pictures on the web page and then crop them to a different resolution, or if you record videos you’re more likely to get a better looking, sharper image.
The H-L-R model shows the big white circle on the lens. If you try and zoom out of the picture, it’ll look like you’re looking at the end of a pencil.
With all of the cameras on this page I took no shots directly at the mirror. A very simple trick is to take another photo as if you were actually looking at the camera’s viewfinder, but only if you’re going to be using or recording the video of the webcam. It’s best to have a tripod handy so you can set it securely on some flat surface. Otherwise, that will be much easier to do with a foot on a table or a coffee table. That said, remember that I used a tripod here and it’s a little easier to move it around and get the camera level than it would be with a tripod. A tripod is not needed here as you can just turn the camera 90 degrees to take the photo, but if you plan on using the web page then a tripod or monopod is a great idea.
If the camera is off, then you’ll want to make sure you put it out of the view of the webcam before recording the video, otherwise you can’t get a good picture.
