Camera kits are now available for individuals and organizations.
Each camera bag includes:
- 1 HD video camera
- 1 shotgun microphone
- Corresponding cables
- Pixela software
Wireless microphones, tripods, and boom poles for the shotgun microphones are also available. There is a limit of seven (7) items.
They can be reserved through the reference desk and picked up at the circulation desk. Please allow at least 48 hours to ensure that the camera battery is charged. Cameras are available to be picked up at all the library branches. You will be required to sign an agreement form the first time you check out the equipment and show your library card and photo ID.
This equipment is provided by a 2011 collaboration with TinCan on a Federal Stimulus Grant which provided high definition video equipment among other things. The grant also provided the Adobe software suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and more). That software is currently available at Creation Stations in each library branch.
