"Just want to throw in my 2 cents on cameras: In my experience, Canon Rebels have been the best value for shooting stop-motion. There's no difference as far as image quality goes when compared to the more expensive cameras. I've shot many…"

"Make sure the lens is in good condition. The things that are not acceptable are scratches on the lens elements, oil on the iris blades and fungus inside the lens. A decent camera dealer will give a report on the condition. In the UK the lens goes…"

"I use a Canon Rebel 3ti and it does pretty well. It's not as nice as the top of the line stuff, but I got it for a fraction of the price and it has been great for my needs.  "

"And, to answer your actual question.... Nikon made an AI f 3.5 55mm, but did not make an AI-S version except in the f2.8. Hence your Google issues."

"Here's a link to a review of the lens, and a historical overview of the different versions. It looks like the pre-AI version had slightly different optics, but it doesn't appear that there was much to choose between…"

"Hi Alex The difference is how wide the aperture will go at its maximum. So someone buying the lens for live action might want one that opens as wide as possible to get the most light in. All this is irrelevant for stopmo as you generally use long…"

"Thanks so much for the great advice. I have just had a quick look on ebay as well and I definitely think I am going to go for the 650D body and hopefully the Nikon 55mm.  However I do have one question about the lens. I noticed in the video you…"

"Just had a quick look on Ebay, and there are 650D bodies going for around £250 in fairly mint condition.  Assuming 2Aus$ = £1, then that leaves you with a decent amount to put towards a lens, so I think my post is not unrealistic.…"

"I have no idea what prices are like in Oz, but it strikes me that $800 will buy you quite a lot of camera. I use the Rebel T31 (600D), no longer made, but I think there's the 650D and 750D. These cameras are all excellent for stop motion. Peter…"

Stop Motion dslr

Hi guys, 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…See More
