Camera and filming questions
 
Ive worked with a friend to make videos for youtube but camera phones and puter cams are not working for me.
Id like to consider a gopro for filming glass work and would like to hear from anyone who has tried it, opinions on the best ideas for filming, lighting issues, does a camera really need a diddy lens?
If this has been answered, my apologies.
Thank you in advance..

I actually taped at didymium lens on my friend's gopro. The video was worthless since I had it angled wrong (she normally sets it up using her phone to check where the camera is aimed and couldn't that day) but the parts of the torching it caught looked good.

The GoPro lens is ultra wide angle and it does not have a manual focus mode so its not good for close in macro style video of work. For everything else its great. I have a hero 4 silver I will be putting up for sale very soon.
