Hi Guys

Is this lens any good for video?

I know its cheap and plastic, but the reviews I've seen is that its good for the price for photography, But how about video?

Has anyone got one? and if so what is your perception of it?

Cheers in advance...

Simple task, much more complicated. I've 6-8 cameras and 3-5 screens, I have to connect them and pass the image to screens.
Everything must be going through 1 or 3 computers (mac/pc).
So can someone help me with finding the hardware? I need to buy some switcher which will pass the video from 2-8 cameras to
1 or 3 computers. I just need to write software to manage the passing video, but it must be dynamically and between live video
also need put some adverts.

Thanks for any help.

just found this video from Ryan Walters. It's a great primer to getting to know your camera. It really gets deep into the difference between slr lens and cinema lenses and why you use a matte box. Check it out.

Okay, this is going to sound like a commercial-- but it's not-- I just love this thing so much that I have to share it.

Okay, the Burton Snowboard company makes the most comfortable camera bag that I've ever owned. Period. And I use it for everyday shoots, not just for travel and sports projects.

It was designed for Burton's staff photographers in the early 2000's, and has been available for the general public to buy for only a few years now.

Shooting Tip: Be Bold With Your Camera Shots

Shooting Tip: Be Bold With Your Camera Shots
When I'm on a shoot, I constantly think about what tool can take a camera shot from ordinary to extraordinary. There are some really great camera accessories out there that can help you achieve that exact goal. Who doesn't want to glide along the dolly track for that smooth shot, or throw on that stabilizer and get a great follow shot? Many times, just keeping your shot steady on a tripod can separate a beginner from a pro. However, relying too heavily on the tools in your arsenal can actually restrict your options.

Greetings! My son is interest in creating videos, casting his friends. I use a Canon 7D, but sound and manual exposure and controls are way too complicated for him. Understandably, he wants to grab and go. Also, there's the "boys will be boys" aspect. So I'm looking for something not too complicated. This is his reward for getting straight-A's this year at school, but I am on a budget. I looking for something under $700. Thanks!
