I know that if I could buy better equipment...but for the time being I'd like to record a few comments for fun to learn about video recording, software, etc (e.g., video blogging style). I want it to look "professional" like the people that do a promo video for a website.

I have access to a Nikon Coolpix S9500 at the moment. Looking it up online it says the specs are:

Digital Video Format: MOV, iFrame,H.264
Max Video Resolution 1920 x 1080
AV Interfaces HDMI,
Composite video/audio

I plan to get some white reflective style posterboard to put behind me (I like just having a plain white background).

I also have another camera (forget what it is) that shoots at 1080P, 24 fps. My main question is what is the difference between 24 fps and 30 fps in shooting a vlog style video?

Anyone have a link (on gmarket) for relatively cheap lights I could use to make my recording look better? I hear that you should have the lights facing you and be in a dark and soundproofish room?

Any tips? Especially on how to make the audio sound good?

Thanks =)
