I am a complete newbie to stop motion however my partner has been doing it for years but she has never been able to afford her own dslr (she has always borrowed one from uni).
So for Christmas this year I wanted to buy her one but I have absolutely no idea what kind of dslr is good for stop motion. She uses the program stop motion pro so I want to get a camera that is compatible with that program.
From the research I've done apparently Canon is better than Nikon and I've been looking at the Canon EOS 1300D but I also heard the "Rebel" line isn't all that good for stop motion, so should I not buy a new 1300D but instead maybe a second hand Canon that will do a better job ? ( I heard the 50D is apparently very good)
My budget is about $800 Australian dollars.
Any help would be really appreciated.
Cool...thanks for the advice. I was looking at some used Olympus lenses on Ebay
Something like: Olympus Zuiko 50mm F/3.5 Macro OM Mount Manual Focus Lens
Any thoughts on these or something similar?

Use old manual lenses, get them secondhand off eBay. Reject any that have fungus or other problems, stick with decent brands. Nikon is the best. Buy cheap adapter rings to fit them to the Canon Eos mount. Then you don't get any flicker because the lens is not controlled by the camera.

I realize this is an old post, but what lens do you use with your Rebel? does it flicker? I am wanting to purchase a used camera on ebay
