Video tips – Point and shoot wedding video

By Jannet Walsh

If you think your point and shoot camera isn’t good enough to shoot video at the next wedding you attend, think again!

I had the chance to shoot a video with my Nikon Coolpix AW 110 camera, along with a few shots from my iPhone 5S this past weekend. Take a look a the video below and think of ideas for the next wedding you attend as a guest and want to shoot a video as a wedding gift!

Tips for shooting video at wedding with point and shoot camera

 

  1.  Bring a tripod to shoot the ceremony and make sure you’re not in the way of the “official” photographers that were hired for the wedding. The tripod will help prevent shaky video.
  2. Think about adding an external microphone for better audio. If you can’t attach a mic to your point and shoot camera, think of adding a wind muff or “Dead Cat” to reduce wind noise if you will be shooting outside. I use one fromWindcutter for my point and shoot, Nikon Coolpix AW 110, and you can also find one for an iPhone and other cameras and devices.
  3. When you can’t use a tripod and are moving around to capture video,  use your camera strap, making sure you put it around your neck. Create tension between your neck and camera with the camera  with camera strap to make the video steady.
  4. Bring extra camera batteries and storage cards. Also think about bringing battery charger for camera just in case.
  5. Download your photos and videos and edit your video.
  6. If the audio isn’t good due to wind or other reasons, think about adding music that is safe and llegal for use when you post your video online. Vimeo, YouTube both have resources for music. I love Audio Jungle where you find great music for your video.
  7. Enjoy the wedding and shoot great video and photos to share with the bride and groom, and especially family that could not attend wedding.

Best wishes!
