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?
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.
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.
The D5200 from Nikon is an all-star team of features in one DSLR from a company that has had great success with its cameras. Although the model number continues to change, the features should be recognizable for Nikon users.
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.
