Maybe one of you can help me out here.
I'm prepping for a stop motion workshop. I'm being provided with 5 brand new Macs with iStopmotion.
I'm looking for advice on iStopmotion -
Have you worked with it before?
Which camera did you use?
Did you manage to get live view?
Which works better: USB or FireWire?
It's a workshop with young teens, so no amazing stills camera required. I'm on a tight budget, roughly €400 for 5 cameras. I want something very simple with live view.
Any feedback would be very appreciated!
Thank you, that's really good to know. I had read some reviews about that camera and it's great to find out somebody's used it for workshops.
sorry, only now i noticed: logitech c920 has no software for mac yet.
here is a claymation made with it, though
anyway the logitech webcam software is good. there you can control the focus, exposure, gain, brightness, white balance and some other things...all this parallely when you use the stopmotion software.
Hi：Caroline, I`have used logitech C920 ,I bought it at a low price,but It is by no means "cheap", if you want to practice Stop motion，Web camera is the best choice.if you want high quality film,I think Canon EOS 550D is necessary .here is AnimatorHD supports cameras
but remember she wants a camera for a mac computer, so the c920 wont work, as logitech released no driver yet. 400€ can barely pay one canon camera, and she needs 5.
here, somewhere at the middle ("compare" topic)
you can find more details about the logitech webcam models. it seems c910 isnt so different than the c920, and it works on a mac
I am testing a new web camera on PC. I am still not sure it works for MAC, but I am looking for a MAC to test it. I compared the pic quatlity with Logitec Quickcam pro 5000. This one is much better than Pro 5000 except the resolution is 1280x720. I think the main reason is the new technology and its 5 real glass lens. I will order 2000 after the test and donate some to the local school workshops here.
