Content Insider # 286 - Word from Our Sponsor
140 Characters Isn't PR, It's a Job Opportunity for Real Writers
Sponsored content sounds so much nicer than advetorial or paid editorial. But as marketing folks work to find better, more effective ways to reach you, convince you to buy professionally written sponsored content coming into its own. Of course that's hard for some publicists to do when they limit themselves to 140 characters or releases about innovative, leading edge solutions from the world/industry leader in whatever. That's ok there are plenty of good editorial writers and journalists out there who can write a solid educational, informational job. You know something that isn't filled with hype, pablum that very few read, even fewer believe. If publicists don't know how to/don't want to work at writing there are super journalists ready to take on the task. Good, balanced writing is good, balanced writing.

There is a reason that TV camera operators routinely use them no matter the circumstances. Trust me, you wouldn't lug one of those dirty big TV camera tripods around everywhere with you by choice! But not all tripods are created equal. The one you can buy for $15 in Big W has nothing in common with any of the tripods you'll see in this story other than it has three legs and a screw to mount a camera!
Forget Using Smartphone Cams!
You Can Shoot Like A Pro With These Budget Camcorders
Lately, users have shied away from using lower priced camcorders in favor of shooting video with their smartphones and this is a bit sad in my opinion. The quality of footage from a phone can never replicate that of even the least expensive of genuine camcorders due to a number of factors, not the least being the lens. The physical design is also a factor; camcorders are built the way they are for a reason, primarily the ergonomics with everything at your fingertips. And of course, the camcorder is always the right way up, shooting proper 16:9 high definition footage (PROPER high def) in landscape mode and not portrait as smartphones do. So which are the best low cost camcorders on the market? With a budget of $500, we wondered just what you could get...
