Thread: How can I film myself?

  1. #1

    Default How can I film myself?

    I need to film myself for a project but need to be able to see the expressions on my face whilst I am filming - how can I do this? Is there anyway that I can fit some kind of mirror on the lens or is there some kind of screen that I can look into which will film exactly what I see and not make it look obvious that I am looking into something? Which camera and equipment should I buy to do this?

    I would be suprised if many dv cameras do not have flip over screens.

    Both my small cameras have flippy screens - so it is a cinch. Just try not to look directly at yourself in the screen - it looks odd on the video.

    To do that, I'd be tempted to try putting a mirror behind the camera. At least then the image will be easier to see than it would be on a camcorder screen.
