    Tablet/Phone As Temporary Capture Solution?

    Paul R Stark Level 1

      Hello Everyone.


      I am in Panama and my Panasonic HVX-200p is in the U.S. I won't have an opportunity soon to retrieve it as the shipping and/or overweight luggage costs are very expensive here.


      I'm wondering if capturing on a tablet would suffice for internet only videos. However, I'm reading that phones offer superior video capture now. If I can't get a lossless output, then I think H.264 may suffice. Since I'm producing for internet only, nothing like broadcast quality is required.




      Then again, what about expensive cameras, GoPro? Camcorders? DSLR's? Something else? All shooting will be outdoors in daylight.




      I have discovered that there are wireless lavalier style mics with 3.5mm inputs for devices. I need to buy one, although I'm not sure which one(s) would offer reliable quality up to 10 feet or so distance. Perhaps someone can recommend one (or more).




      If I may impose upon you all to offer your opinions on my best, low-cost alternatives, I would be most grateful.
