Lights! Camera! Action!

Did you ever want to be a moviemaker? Be the next Alfred Hitchcock, or Steven Spielberg? You can explore your storyteller muse because you have a powerful movie camera already. Your camera and your cell phone have some very able movie making capabilities built into them. They are designed to look good on HD TV’s and high resolution monitors.

When talking about modern digital cameras ‘movie mode’ refers to a camera mode specifically designed for capturing moving pictures. Movie mode can be found on most digital cameras, from basic point and shoot cameras all the way up to professional DSLR’s and is usually accessed by pressing a dedicated button.


When recording in movie mode a camera will capture both video and sound to a digital video file stored on the cameras onboard memory.
