The Cheapest Place To Buy Camtasia Studio 7

Review Details Images

Camtasia is an awesome bit of kit, I use it extensively on compelling.tv, and if you've been thinking about buying it I've done a bit of hunting around the net to find the best place to get it on the cheap. Read on for more info, I think you'll be surprised what I found ....

Why Camtasia?

Camtasia's roots are in screen recording, but the Camtasia Studio 7 package adds a whole lot more to the original recipe to make it function as a half-decent video editing suite as well as the defacto screen recorder of choice for Windows.

You can now edit multiple audio tracks, make easy cuts to your videos / screen recordings within the software, and add "callouts" on top of your videos to highlight parts of the frame. 

While Camtasia only appears to support one track of video, you can "trick" it to support multiple tracks with the "Picture in Picture" track feature.

Camtasia exports in a number of formats, and most importantly generates good quality HD MP4 files you can upload or publish directly to YouTube.

Is it any good?

I swear by it. If you've watched any of my videos on YouTube, you're watching Camtasia in action. It's not going to compete with Final Cut Pro or Sony Vegas as a Video Editing package, but if you intend on doing screen recording of Powerpoint presentations or any other software, it's a powerful but simple way to get started.

There are a couple of negative reviews of Camtasia around the net, however they're almost all from people whinging about performance, which comes down to the fact they're running it on old PC's. I have a half decent, 2 year old laptop and have no issues with it whatsoever. Maybe once it crashed, but that's pretty good going given how much I use it.

Where to Buy..

The obvious place to buy would appear to be from the Camtasia website (techsmith.com), but it's actually cheaper if you get it from Amazon. Techsmith sell it at $299 (download only), whereas Amazon sell it ay $272 (when I looked), and you get a hard copy! (CD-ROM). That's a $27 discount if you're crap at Math like me.

If you're in the US, Amazon ship it for free to your door within 5-8 days, or quicker if you pay a little extra.
