Anyone into Photo/Video/Audio editing?

Just curious what cameras and recorders you might be using.

I got back into this stuff after taking a break many years and everything has changed a lot. Used to shoot with a Canon 20D back in the day, but looking to get a nice mirrorless camera to shoot 4k video along with an audio recorder.

Also curious about what software suites people are editing in aside from what Adobe has to offer.

My brother (an amateur photographer) and my sister in-law (a professional photographer) both swear by two photo editing softwares for ease of use.

VSCO (a photo editing app) has a premium package for $20 a year that is supposed to be stellar.

When that doesn't come into play, Adobe Lightroom is great. Apparently you can make a few of your own favorite photo editing presets and apply them to photos (even with the app)

I'm not big into photography, but I would have to guess that photoshop is still the standard, or at least among the best options. I think it's really pricey though, maybe even subscription based now.

As for video editing, iMovie isn't bad if you have a Mac. Final Cut Pro is the one that we used when I did some work for a local television network. It's got more options than iMovie and is generally better in my opinion, plus you can cut to different camera angles, which I don't think you can on iMovie.

I've done work with video editing. I've always stuck with free programs. I've used: Da Vinchi Resolve, Light-works, windows movie maker, and Vegas. They're pretty good (aside from the movie maker).
The one I've liked the best has been Da Vinchi. The free version is absurdly packed with features, and pretty in depth. It's got all I need when it comes to editing videos. Not as glitchy as Vegas or Lightworks.
Lightworks is pretty simple yet powerful. Can't do as much as Da vinchi and a bit buggier.
Just remember to save often when editing video.

Otherwise, for audio I just use audacity.

Oh the video cameras I’ve dropped and have broken over the decades!

I started in the early 1990s with a Sony Handicam with the standard video cassette tape. I’d dub them onto VHS. My last video camera was a digital Sony with a hard drive. I just threw it away while cleaning up my office as I’ve not used it for six or seven years due to it having a vertical scroll issue with the screen, rendering the touch controls unusable (I’ve researched a fix, but none is known).

As for editing, my first was some big box that connected between my old Windows 3.1 computer and a VHS video recorder. Archaic and complicated controls. My last computer based editor was an Adobe Photoshop based editor. I still have it on my old warhorse Toshiba laptop running Windows Vista, but don’t use it any longer as it doesn’t support modern formats any longer; it also takes nearly a full day to render a DVD after editing.

Today I shoot video with my cell phone and use iMovie on my iPad. My inexpensive LG Rebel 4 Android cell phone takes impressive video. I import the videos into my iPad with a SanDisk Lightning/USB flash drive using my old Toshiba. My iMovie is the free app that came with my latest iPad. It isn’t anywhere near as versatile as the Photoshop based program, but I can whip out an enjoyable video in little time. I store my videos on an external 1TB hard drive on my old Toshiba, along with all my other media.

Back in the day when I did far more travel and off roading, I rigged up a dash mounts for my old Sony Handicams in my old ‘96 Chevy S-10 4x4 and ‘02 Tacoma TRD 4x4. I’ve added drama to my videos by holding the camera out the window, holding it outside and looking back at fellow off road friends in their rigs, deep creek crossings. I had one camera die by falling at 70mph, another drowning in a 5’ deep swift water creek crossing and still missing to this day. As well as two cameras dying by dropping onto rocks while on foot.
