Shoot video like a pro

Rick Broida over at Lifehacker has some pointers for everyone shooting videos this holiday season.
Nothing brings out the camcorders like the holidays, which is why this is the perfect time to admit an ugly truth: You suck at making home movies.
No, really. I'm sure you're a nice person and all, but there's more to videography than just taking the camcorder out of the box and pressing Record.
As with photography, good videography requires a bit of know-how.
Rick's pointers include:
  • RTFM
  • Be prepared
  • Use a tripod
  • Raise the lights
  • Ace the audio
  • Set up your shots
  • No digital zoom
  • Shoot B-roll
