Looking for a Videographer for you wedding or other event? We provide Videographers and Photographers, and we offer package deals when you order a DJ, as well. Contact us for pricing and packages!
We use the Canon GL2 video cameras and higher (XL1 and 2).
Most Digital Video Camera ("camcorders") have a processor, or "chip" (called CCD) that recognizes Red, Blue & Green. The Canon GL-2 Video Camera has THREE - one for each color. Combile that with it's multi-layered filters (Ultraviolet & Polarizing - each having multiple layers!), and your wedding is sure to turn out glare-free, and with the correct exposure.
Besides the lenses we use (Wide-Angle, Panoramic, Zoom), we are able to record your event from the DJ/Band's mixing board outputs (if you desire) - and not simply with the built-in stereo microphone. What does this optional service mean to your event? – That we can make a great video - with INCREDIBLE sound, for a very reasonable price!
Here's how it works – I charge only $295 (+GST) + tapes (each tape holds one hour). That's IT! We video your wedding and reception, and give you the Mini DV (Digital cartridge). You may opt to buy them yourself, and we record your event, and give them back - it's up to you!
Many Customers prefer for us to do it all, and with the cartridges running between $4 each to $12 each ($19 to $29 each for multi-coated), you multiply the hours of your event to get your needed cartridges. For instance, a 5-hour event takes 5 cartridges, at a total cost of approximately $50.

How it works, technically:
3CCD (Charge-Coupled Device)
A semiconductor technology used to build light-sensitive electronic devices such as cameras and image scanners. Such devices may detect either color or black & white.
Each CCD chip consists of an array of light-sensitive photocells. The photocell is sensitised by giving it an electrical charge prior to exposure.
The Canon GL2 has three CCDs, delivering outstanding picture quality, highly accurate color reproduction and a wide dynamic range with virtually no color noise. On top of that, Canon has improved a broadcast technology to create a new form of Pixel Shift, producing greater picture quality than that of camcorders using CCDs with almost twice the number of pixels.
20x Zoom Lens with 100x Digital Zoom
The GL2 incorporates a 20x Professional L-Series Fluorite optical zoom lens, which transforms distant subjects into dramatic close-ups. The 20x optical zoom is the 35 mm focal length equivalent of 39.5 - 790 mm. Canon adds the WD-58 Widewide-converter to increase the field of view by 30% for indoor shots or panoramic views.
The digital zoom, capable of extending to 40x and a maximum of 100x, provides sharper detail compared to others thanks to Canon's superior lens quality. You'll reveal details too distant to be seen with just the eye alone. At full telephoto, the 35 mm focal length equivalent is an amazing 39,500 mm.
Professional L-series Fluorite Lens
Canon has satisfied the demands of experienced image makers for years through the power, design and quality of 35mm and broadcast TV lenses. Canon's Professional L-Series lenses utilize Fluorite, a material which provides outstanding resolution, contrast, and color reproduction- especially in lightweight, high-magnification lenses.
Incorporated into the lens on the GL2, Fluorite delivers the ultimate in clarity and image quality. The Fluorite element inside the lens defeats color aberration -- the effect when the components of light stray from one another within a lens, causing a reduction in sharpness, contrast and color. The Fluorite lens precisely controls components of light providing an excellent balance of these three critical ingredients of picture quality. This is unobtainable with conventional optical glass.
Optical Image Stabilizer
Canon's superb optical stabilization system corrects camera shake instantly so even hand held shots, at full telephoto, and shots taken from a moving car, are smooth and steady. And since it is optical, there is no loss of image quality inevitable with electronic image stabilizers. It perfectly complements the high picture quality of the DV format.
