Hi all...great forum you got here. I've just spent a bit of time looking around and had a few questions. My sister is getting married in August and has asked me shoot her wedding. I've tinkered with videography but haven't really dived into the pool.
I have a Canon T2i and was wondering what are some good lenses for this type of stuff. I have the 18-55mm lens and the 55-250mm lens but was thinking of having a good overall lens for video.
Also, I have seen vids on Youtube where the internal mic pics up lots of lens sound. I was thinking of picking up an external shotgun mic like this one: Rode Microphones Video Mic Condenser Microphone Directional Microphones VM - Vistek Canada Kits
My sister is getting married outside on the beach so I want to be sure to pick up the sound of the vows and such. Will this mic do the trick?
As for editing software, I have Sony Vegas HD 10. I really want her video to have a film look and have been hearing about this Magic Bullet Looks software. There is also the matter of Adobe Premiere vs Vegas. I have been using Vegas and know it well. Is Adobe that much better to merit a shift?
My laptop is a Compact Intel Core Duo CPU with a 2.00 GHz processor. 2 GB Ram an 32-bit OS. I've read that this might not have the power to do HD video editing. Thoughts?
Also, is Magic Bullet good to get that film look or are there better programs.
