Shaking -

Another big problem.

I’m constructing a case made from lego for the Quickcam, as it sometimes leans to the left – a huge nuisance.

Try check out my “lego case” for the 4000…

Use two or three…

It will look much better. :)

I’ve been meaning to ask, when I use more than one lamp, it is WAY too bright. The lamp I use must be brighter than most others, I think?

Anyways, onto my review of the film:

I thourght that it was fairly good. Instead of making a holder out of lego for your Quickcam Pro 4000, you could simply just use sticky tape, tape each side of the holder which comes with the cam down a few times, and then tape down the cord. It helps a lot. It would, however, be a good idea to make a cam holder if you want low shots near the ground. :)

You need to diffuse the light of the lamps. If you use more than one lamp you can eliminate shadows/even-out the lighting/etcetra.

Skecthy,

I am going to use the case because the shots for my next movie are going to be mostly down low.

JamesFM,

I have two desk lamps I can use. Is that enough?

The number of lamps used doesn’t matter …

The only thing that does matter when it comes to lighting is if it looks good or not, and you are the judge of that…

For several shots in my movie I remember using 6-7 lamps, but the average number was 3-5. That’s what it took for me to make my shots look good.
