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.

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.

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
