-should keep it to 1.5 minutes or less. If they don't do narration they should highlight the features with some text in the video as well. If not at each feature then at the start so people know what to focus on while they watch it.…
senting a video interview booth at AutoCon2012 in Las Vegas, September 5-8. The interview booth will invite dealers attending AutoCon to present their best Digital Tip on-camera.
The video booth will feature an high definition 1080p video camera, lights and a microphone which will feed into a laptop connected to the Dealer Marketing website. The videos of the dealers will then be uploaded to the Dealer Marketing Magazine website home page (www.DealerMarketing.com) and will air during AutoCon2012. The dealer that offers the best Digital Tip during the show will win a new Apple iPad and their Digital Tip will be featured in the next issue of Dealer Marketing Magazine.
Digital Tips are better, faster, more efficient ways for dealers to use the internet in marketing their dealership. An example of a Digital Tip would be a technique for featuring a dealership’s used vehicles on Craigslist, or a faster way to shoot photos of new cars and upload them to the dealer’s website.
The conference runs September 5-8, 2012 at the Aria Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I appreciate all of you sharing your wealth of information with someone new.
Wireless mic, or no wireless mic? If you're filming outdoors I've noticed wind and background noise are an issue. The dealers I'll be working with are on very noisy corners as I'm sure you are too. While it appears night or evening filming works best, noise will still be an issue.
Camera software is often lousy . . . thanks Aj for that tip. Has anyone ever used PowerDirector? Doesn't look like it's used much for car videos. I'll look into Avid.
Thanks again. This is a whole new world! I'll continue exploring!
camera experience for Facetime (apple's in-house Skype-type videoconference app), it's not much different than iPad 3/4 with retina screen, as far as the user experience is concerned. Do you NEED the latest one, instead of an older generation? Probably not. They all use the same operating system (iOS 7, which just came out), and most apps are compatible with all but the first generation. If you WANT the latest one, be sure to GET AT LEAST 32 GB of memory. Unlike an Android phone or tablet, there isn't a card slot for additional storage of app data, photos, or videos, and it fills up quickly. Even if you buy an older generation iPad, it is well worth the investment to invest in at least 32 GB. For most people, a high-quality Android tablet with at least 1 GB of RAM will suffice for the majority of functions, like FaceBook, Netflix, GMail / Yahoo Mail, Angry Birds, and Twitter. But the iPad is in another universe when it comes to Educational apps for kids, Music creation and publishing, and even many games (shooter, driving, flying games especially). If you have any questions or curiosities about purchasing a Tablet, please feel free to PM me, or even give me a call 727-638-0195. I am always happy to help others with technology, and promise not to pitch you our CarChat24 live chat product!…
