wfs use two cameras blog
If you’ve been watching this channel for a while, you’ll know that I am generally against spending lots of money on cameras. But, I have to say, there are many benefits of using two cameras, which is what we’re looking into this week.

Check out this week’s video right here:

What do I need to get started with a 2 cam setup?

BUT WAIT…

Just to be clear, what I’m recommending here is that you find a camera that costs half as much, and buy two of them next time you upgrade. As I’ve said in many other videos, spending lots of money on your camera really doesn’t make that much difference to your films.

We’ve all seen those camera comparisons, and often it’s hard to tell the difference between a $500 and $50 000 camera. But investing in audio and lighting gear really will make a big difference. So, if you think a dual camera setup is for you, that’s fine, but please don’t go spending thousands before you have a decent audio / lighting setup!
