I'm shooting a choir performing in a church next month. I have one specific question and a request for general advice. Church to me usually means bad acoustics and dark. I plan to get around the sound by recording with a Zoom H4n placed close to the choir. I'll be going to a rehearsal tomorrow night to do a test recording.
I have a question about the best use of the two cameras I'll have at my disposal. I have a HVX201 and my friend has a DBX100. Which of these will be best to use as the long shot fixed pointing at the choir camera and which would be best for close ups slow pans type shots. I know the HVX would be best for both but would you use the better camera for the long shots or the zoomed in shots ?
Or is this not the way to go about it. Any advice would be appreciated.
