When I look at other photography and video websites around the Webiverse, the most asked question I see is “What kind of camera should I buy?”
The most accurate answer to this is also the least satisfying… “What do you intend to do?”, coupled with “How much do you have to spend?”
Most of the cameras I have are nowhere near the state of the art; several of mine still use Mini-DV tapes, which became “obsolete” years ago.
The Z990, which is no longer being built (Eastman Kodak is getting out of the photographic equipment business, as I understand it), is a good camera, with standard photos coming out at 4000 X 3000 pixels, and excellent resolution of the digital movie recording. It has features that rival some of the DSLR cameras (Canon and Nikon), and exceed some of the mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras out there.
In truth, any camera that records video, including VHS, 8mm, Hi-8, Digital-8, and the 640 X 480 point and shoot cameras can work. You need to do instead of just talk about doing.
(Something I have been guilty of over the years…)
So get out there, and just shoot the damn thing!
