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

Canon Debuts the EOS 6D Full Frame DSLR

'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.

Canon EOS C100 Announced at $8,000

Canon EOS C100 Announced at $8,000

Canon announced the EOS C100 digital video camera this morning, and those resistant to DSLR video are surely rejoicing. This camera takes the large sensor andinterchangeablelens features from DSLRs and puts them in to a package clearly designed for the video professional. In order to save you time, I've put together a list of all the features you care about in the C100 and bolded those not found in traditional DSLRs. Unfortunately, Canon didn't include every frame rates available.
