Recommended Cameras

Teams record their games with everything from an iPad to cameras used on Hollywood movie sets. Regardless of which camera you use, it's extremely important to have good quality game film when using Krossover. Poor quality film could lead to poor breakdowns and statistics.

For more information on the best practices for recording your games, please watch this video. If your team is in the market for a new video camera, we recommend the following cameras for any budget:

Best Budget Camera: Sony HD Video Recording HDRCX405 Handycam Camcorder ($228 at Amazon)



This is the camcorder we recommend for all of our teams on a tight budget. For under $230 bucks, this camera is great for setting on a tripod in your gym to film a basketball game. Just be sure to avoid rapid zooming in and out, and try to find a good balanced steady back-and-forth shot. It also does not do the best job out on the football or lacrosse field where the person filming your games needs to zoom in and out for certain plays and positions of the field.
 

Panasonic HC-W580K HD Camcorder with Built-in Twin Video Camera ($347.99 at Amazon)




This Panasonic camera is has been labeled the best "non-professional camera", and we tend to agree. The big 3.0 inch LCD display will help you follow the action, and does well both indoors and outside. 


Best Overall Camera: Canon VIXIA G30 HD Camcorder ($1,068 at Amazon)

This Canon camcorder is the best for outdoor games and allows you to quickly zoom in and out to capture all of the action. Our breakdown team loves any film that comes from this camera! 


Camcorder Alternatives: iPhone or iPad ($399 - $1229 Apple.com)



If you don't have access to a camera, feel free to use your phone or tablet. Make sure to use these devices with a tripod.
