[QUOTE=Alcapwne;32781796]the only bad thing about the D5100s video is lack of 60fps recording which you might want for slow mowing stuff[/QUOTE] Also note that even though the auto focus on the fly is nice for casual shooting, it's a negative feature when you want to manually set your settings. edit: I believe the D5100 can do 60fps at 720p, correct?
nope
[QUOTE=Alcapwne;32781938]snapsort [url]http://snapsort.com/compare/Canon-T3i-vs-Nikon-D5100[/url][/QUOTE] D5100 also got 80 on DxO Mark, 600D got 65. The only thing the 600D has going for it is 720p/60 video. The biggest use of DSLRs are photos though :v:
What should I get? D3000 or a D60? From what I've seen the they're pretty much the same.
D60 is a year older than the D3000, so if they're both pretty much the same then the D60 will be cheaper.
How good is the film camera on the D7000? And can you manually change focus while filming with it?
[QUOTE=booster;32810985]How good is the film camera on the D7000? And can you manually change focus while filming with it?[/QUOTE] Ofcourse you can manually focus with video. Infact, it's actually the normal way to use video with DSLR's. And what do you mean with good? Features? Handling? Quality?
[QUOTE=DoubleDD;32811569]Ofcourse you can manually focus with video. Infact, it's actually the normal way to use video with DSLR's. And what do you mean with good? Features? Handling? Quality?[/QUOTE] How good is it in general when compared to other DSLRs in that price range.
[QUOTE=booster;32811847]How good is it in general when compared to other DSLRs in that price range.[/QUOTE] Honestly, I'd recommend the Canon 60D if you're doing video work, unless of course you already have some Nikon lenses.
[QUOTE=ep9832;32812137]Honestly, I'd recommend the Canon 60D if you're doing video work, unless of course you already have some Nikon lenses.[/QUOTE] Well, I only got a 35mm so far. But I won't be doing that much video work. But it's good to know seeing as I'm putting nearly all of my cash on it.
Should I get a 35mm or a 50mm prime for general use and videos?
[QUOTE=Alcapwne;32816422]Should I get a 35mm or a 50mm prime for general use and videos?[/QUOTE] Crop sensor or full frame sensor camera?
he's got a crop 35mm 1.8
yeah it's crop, thanks any recommendations, I'm using a Nikon D3100?
Any chance it's this one? [img]http://nikonrumors.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/353_2183_af-s-dx-nikkor-35mm-f-18g_front.jpg[/img] If so (kinda off-topic from your question), it's an excellent lens, I use it pretty much all the time. [editline]16th October 2011[/editline] It's really good considering the price.
I think this is the right thread for this type of question. Retoast [QUOTE=Chekko;32810564]I got a videocamera for my birthday and it's a DVC-5B2 Waterproof camera. It's decent. The battery time is not so decent, though. I don't think I will record much underwater either. My question is if different tripods have different plug-in or "hole" sizes? I'm interested in making time-lapse and nature videos so I want a good tripod to have the camera steady, even in tough terrain. The price should be less than $150.[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=Chekko;32818866]I think this is the right thread for this type of question. Retoast[/QUOTE] From the 3 tripods I've used, all of them have fitted perfectly. And decent tripods aren't as expensive as you'd think, I bought mine for like 30€ and it's been stable for the past 2 years. But if you're unsure, you can always measure the size of the "hole" and compare it to tripods for sale in your town.

I want to get a medium format camera like a Pentax 67 or Mamiya 645, can anyone point me in the right direction? I don't know where to look for prices and any general help would be appreciated.
Can Video cameras use focus? Mine can't it seems and the quality is not so great. Probably I'm just doing something wrong, I don't know. I'm a beginner with cameras and lack the experience. My camera is a Waterproof Video Camera (DVC-5B2), Made in China :v: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycASyNm-ako[/media]

What sort of prices are we talking about though? Edit: Nevermind, I can see prices now. Thanks.
Hey guys, I know it's not a camera, but my laptop is fucked now. And since a computer is an integral part of my photography process I'm looking into a new laptop of some sort and thought this would be the thread to ask. I've been thinking about getting a macbook. Anyone have any experience using one? How are they for photo editing? Thanks in advance.
I have a MacBook Pro 13" from 2009, it's okay. Could do with a lot more screen real-estate and a bit more horsepower.

Hello guys, so I'm in need of a new DSLR, and I'm thinking of getting a Sony Alpha SLT-A55, thoughts? Would you recommend something else? Lets say the budget is 1200€. I'm in to street photography, landscape photography, mediocre night photography and portraits.

I had a go on my friend's mac book pro 13" It was nice actually. I think I'm gonna go for it in the near future. Maybe ask my parents to give me a loan to help me out. Or ask them for a share of the price as my combined Christmas and Birthday present. We'll see :)

[QUOTE=ijyt;32843305]Don't forget to order from the student store if you're in Uni.[/QUOTE] That I am. Do you think it would be better to buy from a store or over the phone? I've also heard if you get a macbook pro they sometimes give you an ipod for real cheap if you ask. That would be sweet.
Decided on the 550D... can't wait to have something that lets me manually define focus and zoom easily! :dance:
