I am new to this forum and looking to get into wedding videography. I am assuming that keeping a backup camera and backup memory cards on hand is a given, but what can you do to avoid disaster if your camera is not writing properly to the card or something is otherwise going wrong *while shooting video* and you're unaware of it until too late?
Are any of the following possible ways to avoid this disaster, and if so which, if any, do you use? Can you give some insight of how much a just-starting-out videographer would need to budget for such safeguards? (I have not yet purchased a camera for this use.)
a) second videographer
b) camcorders (reasonably priced) that accept two cards that can record simultaneously in case one card fails? (which makes/models?)
c) a camcorder with available on-the-fly video upload to a cloud drive while recording (this is getting a bit out there, but I don't know what's available)
d) cameras that have good "self-awareness" of potential problems and ways to alert the videographer (which makes/models?)
d)something I'm missing?
I know it would be an epic disaster to record a whole wedding video and then later realize that your project did not record properly or there was a problem with the memory card and you are left with zilch for your clients. I'm sure this happens, although hopefully not often. If y'all can discuss what you do to avoid this, or if it doesn't happen enough for you to personally worry about, it would be of great help.
