Okay onto the question. I am a novice videographer and so far I've made a decent intro into the craft with just my kit lenses on my 600D & 500D, now I want to step up my arsenal for better front end quality. I initially didn't want to invest too much money and then later realize "HEY YOU SUCK AT THIS" or "HEY I DON'T LIKE THIS". Thankfully none of those seem to be reality (yet) and hopefully never. I've already made up my mind about getting the Canon EF 50mm 1/8.
Practicing with a Glidecam.
Hi there !I need to shoot a video that will be shoot completely during night in front of a Bar. I've a 18mm-200mm and I'm not that expert with photography. For having a good quality video, what do you suggest me to do ? Do I have to rent a different lens, do I need some lighting? Your help is really appreciated, Thank you very much, Simone Mascagni
Hey i posted recently about transferring my footage from the above cameras onto my hard drive which is a Seagate external hard drive. FCP X does not recognize or even acknowledge this in its system! this has become increasingly frustrating, because these HD cameras and the amount of memory they take up is too much for FCP X alone. The whole reason I bought the terabyte was to store my HD video footage without any worries about memory. Please help, as my patience is being tested lol.

Yesterday Canon published a short documentary by filmmaker Patrick Moreau shot on the C100. The film is interesting, but, of course, we're mainly interested in the performance of the C100.
I have been using my DSLR (Nikon D5100) for quite sometime for photography. However, in the next year, I will be involved in a project or two where I will be mainly shooting videos for YouTube.
I used my D5100 for YouTube and it is fantastic. However, because I am going to be recording mainly videos, I was wondering if there is a better alternative to shooting with a DSLR especially if it offers more features, video quality, flexibility or ease of use.
Budget is < 2500 USD

OneRiver Media has put together a really spectacular head to head video comparing Blackmagic's Cinema Camera and the 5D Mark III. As you can see, the results really speak for themselves. Even though the two cameras are priced very similarly, the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and the Canon 5D Mark III are in an entirely different class from one another.

'Tis the season for camera announcements! Follow along if you can. Canon debuted the EOS 6D at Photokina today, and for video shooters, this may or may not be terribly exciting news. The good news is the EOS 6D is Canon's smallest, and most affordable full frame camera yet. It appears to have most of the video features found in the 5D Mark III, including 1080p at 30fps h.264 footage, all for $1,400 less money. While you can attach an external microphone, it appears to be lacking the option to connect headphones for live audio monitoring.
Here is our 2nd entry of the 2012 season. Once again any and all feedback would be appreciated
