What Is The Best Camera For Real Estate Property Listings?

Everyday real estate agents, brokers get asked the big question, "tell me about the real estate listing".

And hitting the highlights to paint a picture of a property is part of the job in shooting the breeze. Striking up a conversation that revolves about real estate listings.portland maine cobblestone city photo

But beyond the sentence or two of what a property is all about.

The shift, escorting the buyer to lots of rich imagery, full motion video and plats, floor plans, information details is essential.

Let me take you to the property with full throttle, wide open show and tell.

Because on the other end of the real estate signal connection is a person with a blank white canvas. An empty Etch A Sketch.

And it is the real estate professional's job to paint the picture, provide the missing property puzzle pieces.

On a variety of formats, media streams. Whatever works best for the other end where the buyer hangs out. Idling, waiting, who does not want delay. Or to be teased with just a trickle, bits and pieces of what they need in making the largest purchase decision most ever make in a life time.

Involving real estate listings needing to be bought and sold. To parade around fully exposed, nothing left to the imagination or missing. Because less means confusion, filling in the empty sockets that should be filled with handsome, helpful stills. With easy to tap tap toggle video renders uploaded to sit back. Watch, listen, know what distinguishes this listing that the sea of others to eenie meenie minie moe.

Lots of simple, helpful productions using real estate video.

For all your properties, not just the ones on the high end. With lots of zero places in the price tags hanging off them. video real estate camera photo

Because the clock of life is ticking painfully, deafening loudly when a person's moving forward is put on hold.

Don't let your listings loiter, linger, be neglected from lack of visual, auditory attention.

So best still, video cameras for real estate marketing.

For the splash on the local property listings and community event happenings needing documentation.

To share with buyers intown and many moons away out of state, the country or heck solar system.

You truly show your dedication to quality photography and representing your client in the best way possible Andrew.

Hi Andrew.  That Sony looks like it weighs 10 pounds.

Posted by Conrad Allen, Webster, Ma, Realtor (Re/Max Professional Associates) over 5 years ago

Will ... what you using that is the cat's meow for video or still cameras?

Noah ... Show me, not from that state but the logic still applies. People want to see, with video they see in full motion and hear the natural sound recovery too. For the you are there. Live. Well almost.

CA ... (Hernia) Like doing curls, but with slides, jibs, and drones (oh my) hoisting the go pro, they all contribute to the show and tell.

Hello Andrew ... and the photo above looks like a Fish-Eye lens.

Personally I would say there are many cameras out there that would work very well, Nikon, Cannon, but I believe it's all about the lens & lighting.

I use a wide-angle lens, but not to wide because then you will get this type of effect in the photo (above).

I believe that the best camera is the one in the professional photographer's hands.

VB ... Go pro camera image. Drone flight canceled due to weather. Thanks for weighing in. Angle, down low, up high shooting down... show the buyer online what the property is all about. Open it up and put it through it's paced online. Not if someone darkens the door. Don't wait for them to one by one show up, promote to hundreds, thousands and pull out the stops to display it online completely.

JJ .... You are the professional mediastream tender and have been to the property, live in the area. Showcase that. Digital, not analog keeps agents or brokers from becoming dinosaurs wearing rusted blue and gold R's. The hardest working letter in the entire alphabet right?

Very interesting reading, Andrew!  Selecting the best cameras to work with can sometimes be a challenge.  It goes beyond the capability of the camera, but also encompasses the ability of the user to handle it.  That Sony video cam does look very heavy.  But, then I wouldn't expect to be carrying it around in a purse.

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) over 5 years ago

Andrew, there are many choices out there for cameras.  And in a great variety of prices.  The best one, though, is the one that is used to take pictures well and not left at home.

MJ ... The operator, gunner not the gun is true. Jimmi Hendrix could make the most basic Western Auto, Canadian Tire low budget guitar sing. Make your hair stand up on your neck, eyes to water and leave you wanting more. Like it was an extension of his body, not bamboo, strings, walnut, whatever right? Artistry with a camera is a skill to pour gas on, experiment and implement online for dividends.

GS ... The ones you use is a the tool that gets sharpened, more effective. Just buying and leaving to gather dust is not going to get results to justify the expenditure... so right. Take it with you, leave the safety off, be ready for the capture.

Good morning Andy. I used to spend a blood fortune on equipment, then I learned how to use the equipment, these days I don't spend as much, but the quality is much better.

Make it a great weekend!

Good morning Andrew, what's the sense of spending thousands of dollars if we don't know how to operate these cameras. Sometimes, I feel like I need a degree to use a camera that takes quality pictures. Have a great weekend!

Posted by Beth Atalay, Cam Realty of Clermont FL (Cam Realty and Property Management) over 5 years ago

Andy, if that's the camera you use, it is well out of my league. My photos and videos when I take them do the job and I take a lot of photos

The selection of the best camera is very important for real estate professionals. If the photographer lacks the needed skills, the camera will not help.

I agree. Pictures definitely tell a story about a home. Sometimes I view the photos for listings and they are blury or cut off.  The best ones are those with the photographer's image reflected in a mirror!  LOL It's worth the investment to care about how the product you are selling is portrayed and the clients really appreciate it.
