I hire a local firm that will do drone shots and supply the video and individual pictures plus a town tour for $350.00 well worth the cost on the more expensive home.

Debra Leisek - currently, I am using a software for my animation videos of market reports.

I do 'create' panaromic effect using some software - when it comes to listing pictures.

Somehow, I am still not very comfortable 'showing' everything about the house in a video - yet.

Hi Debra - You might want to contact Craig Daniels , who has an awesome on-line video series that he did with Debb Janes. They cover equipment as well as shooting technique and processing, and it will really get you off and running.

I use my Nexus 6p if I'm doing a video of a particular feature (like a waterfall).  For virtual tours I use a regular camera with a video function on a tripod and I use youtube's editor to piece them all together.

I have a video camera, but I find that my iphone is just as good and so much easier, in nearly all ways. I just signed up for Animoto. I'm looking forward to trying out their platform.

Debra,

You have great suggestions here from the community.  It is not so much about the taking of the subject, it is about the editing.  That is why there is an Academy Award for editing.  Editing tells the whole story of any video.  A

I have a nice video camera that I bought about 8 years ago. It is a prosumer Panasonic 3 chip camera. I use Premier Pro (Adobe software). I have accumulated quite a bit of equipment over the years and it has become a neat hobby.
