“At the top of my list of tips for working with a camera is to make sure the camera is in good working order.

“Your camera is a really precious tool. You must treat it well and take care of it. If you don’t, it will be used in an inefficient manner over thousands of shots throughout the week, or will even end up costing more money than you spent on the camera itself!

But you’re still very much the owner — you can replace the camera if it dies and if your gear fails, you can replace your lens and case and set it up again.”

The reason I ask is that most of this will depend on the video format and the type of format (which is really all down to you and your project), but there’s one factor that’s a really strong factor.
Most video cameras are going to be the same size in all directions at an inch thick. So how does this apply to video? A few years ago people thought the answer was to move the frame between the lenses, but this was never really a viable option, so now people simply use the center of the frame (as opposed to the end of the frame) when moving through a video. This also means that you must pay more attention to center of gravity. This is a very subtle difference.
For example, a DSLR on the other hand uses the full frame (12×12) at the center of the frame. If everything you get on the side of the frame is the center of gravity (which is the smallest amount
