"Hi Carla, I think those expensive ones would have electronics to allow the camera to control the lens.  We don't want that for stop motion, we want to set it manually and know it will stay there.  So the simple cheap ones are ideal…"

"I've tried dolls and toys and legos but none of them worked out. For me so far the best thing is to just make the main shape with wire or just straight aluminum foil and some invisible fishing line or thread to hang it. "

"StopMo Nick - I've been reading up on lens adapters and looking around for one that adapts a Nikon AI-S 35-135mm MF lens to a Canon EOS Rebel T2i (550D). Most of the ones I've seen are priced at $100-200:S What should I be searching for on…"

"Hello fellow grad student! I'm using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi, which I bought off eBay for $400 two years ago, which probably means they've come down even more in price since then. It works with the software DragonFrame and can be controlled…"

"So far I have used a standard usb data cable so I can control the camera using Canon's Zoombrowser EX application on my PC. I'm assuming I will be able to do the same with most decent stop motion programs, It's just getting hold of…"

"What hook-up method did you use for your powershot, Bobby? I have one Canon Powershot S3 I believe, and I've been told a way to hook it up very unconventional, which I forgot now after I purchased the Canon T3i and remains dusty in some box…"

Rick Catizone replied to Erica Volpe's discussion DSLR Camera recommendations?- Grad student in need of help!
"Regarding the T3i vs T2i, it's a bit pricier, and the only thing that was "new" that I saw was the variable viewer. I went for saving the cash for other things. Best, Rick"

Bobby McCarty replied to Erica Volpe's discussion DSLR Camera recommendations?- Grad student in need of help!
"I have been using a Canon Powershot S5iS for some early test shots as it's been a considerable while since I did anything with stop motion at all, so I have been testing whichever software will drive the camera until I know which one to use.…"
