I've noticed many very professional yoyo videos created by you guys over in the video section. I'm interested in taking some videos as well after I become a little bit better. But mostly I was wondering what kind of video cameras you use. They can't be the video option and a regular digital camera, can they? With all that slow motion, clear filming and such. What do you use? Anything cheep, but gets the job done well?

I'm new to the filming thing but I would recommend looking at the Flip Camcorders. I recently brought the Flip Mino HD 3rd Generation one. Brought mines for 60 bucks on Ebay and It also came with the wide angle lens so the camcorder can capture a father background. If you haven't yet check out my first video. It's not a Canon quality but It sure got the job done. Also I don't think the digital cameras would be clear and fast motion like the camcorders.
Hope some of this helped!

Hey thanks Mr. Green for the reply, appreciate it. I'll look into that, but does it come with like an editing software for slow motion and such? Or do you download that on its own? Or you just can't do that.

Yep It comes with FlipShare program. I don't think you can edit using slow motion and all the fancy stuff like other programs. It looks like It's for organizing and make a video. Don't see any editing tools. There Is other programs though like Sony Vegas, Windows Movie Maker, and Adobe that you can download.

The Flip 3rd Gen cameras are affordable and work good at 720p HD(wide screen aspect ratio). The 3rd Gen adds image stabilization. The latest firmware makes the MP4 file more general usage compliant. I can import it directly into Sony Vegas if I want to edit. They are also compact(fits in a pocket) and include a tripod mount for extra options. The only two issues are battery life(some use a built in battery) and fixed data storage capacity(no removable card).
Pop a switch, the USB arm swings out. Move your data, charge your camera. Mac and PC compatible. Easy to use. What more can you want?--

Alright! Sounds like these Flip cameras are something I need to get into. Thanks guys, I'll bear this in mind for the long run.

if you want to get into filming, I'd recommend you to first get familiar with the basic rules of photography, rule of thirds and whatnot, it'll take you about 15 minutes browsing the internet to get the info.
also get familiar with notions such as sensitivity, aperture and shutter speed, the focal length ("level of zoom" if you will) and it's influence on the picture (blur, elevation changes etc...)
then you'll be all set.
it won't take you more than an hour or so to learn all you need to know there to get started, then, experience will do the polishing ^^

All of that slowmo etc is done with an editting program. I use a plain old sony digital camera and just make it pretty when i edit it.
