A friend who knows I'm a photographer is looking for someone to shoot video at a wedding. I've done a little playing around with video on my cameras, but to be frank, I know nothing about editing video. Apparently the brides mother just wants it recorded ("nothing fancy") and wants to pay for it. Other than editing, my other concerns are the 12 minute cutoff on these bodies, and the crappy built-in mic sound quality (picks up everything).
So here is what I'm looking for input on:
1. For those that shoot wedding video with dslrs, How do you work around the 12 minute cutoff with 2 bodies?
2. What is good free/inexpensive editing software? I downloaded windows movie maker a while back and never used it...is that worth using?
3. Suggestions for a decent (not outrageously priced) stereo microphone
4. They want to know what I would charge. I haven't agreed to the job yet, and need a fair "friend" price idea to charge if I take the assignment.
Thanks for any and all input!
