"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…"
"Simon thank you so much for all the information, you've literally answered every question I had about everything and more. Honestly thank you so much for all the help.
I'm surprised by how cheap some of the add on's are for the…"
"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…"

"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…"
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.
