We are now into the second week of teaching & one issue I faced was how to do a live demo to a class on how to configure the various settings on a DSLR camera to get some good quality footage. The solution I came up with was to take a live feed from a video camera & pipe it via HDMI cable into the labs projection system. To achieve this I made use of a 2 way HDMI splitter to interface between the output from the camera and the HDMI input to the projection system – as you will see in one of the images below.
Overall it seemed to work out fairly well, with the live feed captured by the Sony NX5E projected across all the screens in the lab for everybody to see. Following on from the demo I got the class to do some filming.
One video created by a pair of students over the weekend recorded at Balgavies Loch, Angus can be seen directly below. The objective had been to capture some nice shots of a forest / nature scene.
