Posted 4 years ago CharlieMungusMember There have been many What Camera threads but i need a good video cam, for about £4-500 Good audio quality is important. Any ideas? Posted 4 years ago CharlieMungusMember I mean a bigger type thing which will generally be on a tripod, actually, probably also need a recommendation for a little handycam type thing too but the main thing is the big camera. Posted 4 years ago mikewsmithSubscriber Digital SLR, it’s what most of the newer small scale films seem to be made on. Posted 4 years ago CharlieMungusMember Hmm, ok. I think i want something a bit more conventionally video cam though. I have an slr but that will be for taking stills during filming Posted 4 years ago nickjbSubscriber Maybe get another DSLR camera that takes the same lenses as your existing camera. Posted 4 years ago molgripsSubscriber What’s it for? Posted 4 years ago GaryLakeMember DSLR if you want to make ‘films’, conventional video camera if you want to ‘film stuff’ like kids and family or dicking about on bikes. No ‘useable/useful’ auto focus on DSLR and slightly awkward ergonomics means you need to be happy focus pulling and/or working to a fixed focus point. If you’re an aspiring ghetto film maker, DSLR and a tidy little prime lens is really hard to be beat for the money… Posted 4 years ago molgripsSubscriber Autofocus on m4/3 cameras apparently works well in video, so I’ve read. Posted 4 years ago 5thElefantMember As does sony dslrs (and nex). Posted 4 years ago molgripsSubscriber Yeah anything that relies on contrast detection AF for stills should be able to do it fast enough for video. Posted 4 years ago 5thElefantMember The sony dslrs have full phase detect in AF. Which might be nice. But… It really depends on what you want to do with it? If it’s on a tripod I doubt you want AF anyway. Posted 4 years ago CharlieMungusMember I want to film classes and workshops, most on tripod, some carrying about and folks moving around. Auto focus would be good Posted 4 years ago plumberMember m4/3 epl1 and gh1 is what I use. Share same lens system which is nice Quality on both is really quite good and there’s plenty of faffability with lenses and settings if you want to go that way Posted 4 years ago Viewing 14 posts - 1 through 14 (of 14 total) The topic ‘What video camera’ is closed to new replies.
