It’s that time of year… And, I need your help! In the past, we’ve done gift lists for Screencasters in “2006″:http://visuallounge.techsmith.com/2006/12/what_to_get_your_favorite_screencaster_for_the_holidays.html and “2008″:http://visuallounge.techsmith.com/2008/12/holiday_screencasting_wish_lis.html. It’s time to compile the list for what to get your favorite screencaster for 2009.
I’ll get the list started for the screencasters on your ‘nice’ list:
“Storyboard graph paper”:http://konigi.com/store/product/storyboard-notepad – perfect for planning your screencasts and stories. I like that one side of the paper is a story board and the back side is just a dot grid if you need to map out bigger ideas without the constraint of the storyboard.
“Kodak Zi8 HD Pocket Video Camera”:http://www.amazon.com/Kodak-Zi8-Pocket-Camera-Black/dp/B002HOPUPC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1260490790&sr=8-1- I just switched to this video camera because it has an external audio jack. I can use my own microphone with this camera and get awesome audio even when I’m recording in at a tradeshow or other event. It is a nice camera if I want to mix real world video with my screencast.
And, here’s where I need your help. Chime in! What equipment, software or other items would you get for your favorite screencaster? What if they are on the naughty list?!
