HeyI'm currently on the hunt for a new camera compatible with Dragonframe. I'm hoping to find something less than $400-500 that allows me to shoot for stop motion *and* live action film. I'm not sure…Continue

Hello Readers, Yesterday I drew up a monster design for a wip film of mine. I drew the idea as a mixture of a Japanese Gamera and the Tarrasque from dungeons and dragons. I'm wondering how best to…Continue

"Shutter count applies particularly to Darren's question, as it look like he might get a secondhand camera. Anything that has done 30k to 60k shutter actuations had probably been used professionally, i.e. hard. A shutter count of around 7k,…"

"A couple more things to consider. The 7d is a metal-body camera designed for long hard professional use, so it is reckoned that it will reach something like 200,000 shutter operations before failing. The Rebel T3i or similar is a plastic-body entry…"

"With all of the DSLRs, Dragonframe tells the mirror to stay up so you can see the live view on the computer monitor. While the camera is connected to Dragonframe, you don't see the live view on the LED screen on the back of the camera. The 40d…"

"I don't use auto focus, ever, so I would agree with Simon. I do use HD video for filming some live elements like waterfalls or smoke against black, but I still prefer to set the focus where I want it, not where the autofocus is likely to jump…"

"Hi Cadmus. There are quite a few cameras that fit the bill. But first, autofocus is not necessarily a good thing when shooting movies. You may want to maintain focus on the foreground while panning, and autofocus will try to find the thing you are…"

Camera good for stop mo and live action

HeyI'm currently on the hunt for a new camera compatible with Dragonframe. I'm hoping to find something less than $400-500 that allows me to shoot for stop motion *and* live action film. I'm not sure if any DSLRs/SLRs fit that description?A friend of mine recommended a Canon Rebel T, however it does not have autofocus for when filming live, which would prevent an issue. I realize though that manually controlled focus is a must for stop motion. Does anyone know of a good camera for this purpose?See More
