Better cameras take better pictures

About the Project

MCM covers Montgomery County, capturing the images and sharing information that matters most to you.

We use video cameras, phone and tablets to bring you the best coverage fairs and festivals! Events and happenings! News from the newsmakers!

Sadly, we know our current equipment isn’t up to the task anymore! Big bulky camcorders with lots of cables lugged all around town, reporters juggling a tablet and a microphone for interviews … STOP!

New DSLR cameras, with wi-fi capability, will allow us to frame the story, with high quality photos and video, up close and personal, making it seem like you are there – only better! Combining our award-winning coverage with pictures sent right from the scene, and video with the depth and definition, enables us to bring the story right to you, whatever platform you're using -- mobile phone, computer or one of our public access television stations.

Speaking of television, MCM is going HD, so high-quality digital content will be more important than ever! Ever watch non-HD programming on an HD device? Fuzzy, blurry, or tiled up in square pixels! YUCK! Our new cameras will provide the quality that enhances the content you’re viewing.

Better pictures, better stories from your community media center!

  • (1) Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera for HD video, wi-fi enabled
