Normally when I have to create a video clip that requires chroma keying I’d use my Canon XH A1. Today I felt like having a go at using the Kodak Zi8 pocket video camera that I’ve been testing for audio quality.
The results I got were pretty good considering the cost of this little camera. The video sample clip is only very short, but it does give you a chance to see just how good this little video camera performs.

Welcome to Pro Blog Tips video tutorials. In this edition were going to do some Chroma Keying of a video clip we recorded using a Kodak Zi8 camera. Its a little HD video camera that you can pick-up on the market these days for around 270 dollars.
An excellent camera for doing little “run and gun” video shoots. And.. one of the things I would like to test was to see how it chroma keys, so were going to be doing that this afternoon, in this video clip.
Thats all for today.
