Considerations when renting a lipstick camera

If you have some shots in your next project that would benefit from the use of a lipstick camera, it could be a very smart rental. They tend to be very simple to use, but you need to make sure you are getting a quality camera from a good manufacturer. Take the time to look at some of the different models and see if you can find any video footage recorded with it. Check out the footage and you will have a much better idea of the type and quality of the video you will be able to achieve. Keep in mind that editing can do a lot to help the footage from the camera to make it look like the rest of your project.

Features of lipstick cameras

Of course, the most noticeable thing about these cameras is the size. They are truly small, but they are still able to record decent quality video, so long as you choose a trusted model with a good reputation. Because of their size, they tend to have a very simple control scheme. For many of the models, it does not get much more complicated then turning them on and off. Of course, different cameras will have different features that may be specific to that make and model.

How lipstick cameras work

These small cameras are able to record high quality footage. Many times, to get a point of view shot, they are mounted to helmets or even the hoods of cars. It is possible to mount the cameras to a variety of different surfaces, but this may require some specialized tools and mounting surfaces. Many independent filmmakers have found some intriguing uses for these types of cameras.
