I have been searching EBAY and several other sites for a battery charger for the Nikon d5100. The problem with the ones there are that they are AC (plug in) chargeable only. I will be in the Redwoods soon on vacation and Yosemite...so I was a charger I can carry in my pocket that is powered by two double a batteries. The ones on EBAY dont say they are compatible with Double A or any other battery to charge the camera batteries, so I dont want to risk buying one without it. (As there are no plugins in the woods. Or the Camper) Can you all direct me to a link or product that will charge on the go?
I've been using my phone to make most of my films, what would be a good camera upgrade for me? I want something that's HD and easy to use.

We all try to make the most out of the gear we have, but every video producer hits points in their career where they become limited by their equipment. Anybody who does video seriously knows it can be an expensive venture, and that it takes time to acquire all the gear we want. The world of camera support equipment is vast and can range from relatively affordable to shockingly expensive. A good tripod is worth it's weight in gold and everyone should have a shoulder mount to get basic handheld shots, but eventually, you're going to want to get some more dynamic shots.
First I must say that I love your site. The info I find there on a regular basis is top notch and I am grateful that you guys do what you do.
Hey guys, i'm getting into photography/videography and am looking at some dslr's. I will mainly use it for downhill skateboarding, which in short is people go down big hills on skateboards (longboards) at very high speeds. I've been to around 42mph and i need something that will take stationary pictures of my freinds going by me while im standing on the side of the road. We wear full face helmets, gloves, knee pads, etc. and aren't just crazy teenagers. I'm leaning towards the nikon, and i have heard the canon T3 feels "cheap" in the plastic sense.

Grab your camera and go! That's what many of us think when it's time to shoot. But take a step back and think - would it have been better to get your camcorder? or something else? What do we actually mean when we say camera and camcorder?
Here is my Sci-fi Short Film
This one was entered in 3 Chicago 2012 film festivals
Title: The Launch
Some feedback would be appreciated
Thanks and enjoy
With new digital cameras touting high framerates of 120 to 300 fps, here's Tom Guilmette's film about a beauty called the Phantom Flex that almost catch a speeding bullet in flight....
I have a Canon Vixia HFM40. Looking for some quality audio as the last piece of my new setup. I've been eyeing different ways to go about it so I of course thought I'd get some advice before I spend $80+.
Should I grab a Shotgun mic to attach to the camera or should I get an external audio and just sync it up? Also some advice on what to buy as far as models would be appreciated too.
