    Your video camera comes loaded with all sorts of special effects. But do you really want to shoot your video in black and white? In this episode of Media Notes I look at the benefits and liabilities to shooting your footage using your camera’s special effects.

    It is always best to “Keep it Clean” and add the effects later in editing. Remember, if you add it when you shoot it, you can’t remove it.
