Hi everyone! I have a question, whenever I plug an xlr mic into my Canon MA-300, which is attached to my Canon GL-2. I get only one channel of audio. The same thing happens when I plug my Zoom H2 (via line out) to my GL-2. Is this the norm or am I doing something wrong. I have scoured the GL-2 Manual and cant seem to get a good answer.
Hello guys ! I really need some help in picking a camera to start shooting videos. I want to do a combination of sketches + a bit of vlogging , that will be the format of the "show". I was thinking of buying a JVC HM30/Samsung Q10/Canon HFR205 or even a SonySX45E , but when i went to the shop the salesman told me that camcorders are crap and i should try a cheaper alternative, a Canon PowerShot A3300 to shoot videos. I have about 230$ budget to buy a camera. Can anyone give me some info, which is better for shooting videos ?
I posted this over at avsforum.com but was told I might want to check here, so here goes.
I've been into amateur movie production toward the end of high school and through college with a buddy of mine. He had a GL2 for a while, then upgraded to HD with a smaller Canon Vixia HV40 and a JAG35 adapter and simple shotgun mic mount. Those were the cameras we both worked with to make some movies for fun and shoot snowboarding a little. Having worked with that camera for a couple of years now, I've noticed some downsides to the lack of manual control.
I'm interested in getting serious with filmmaking and I'm planning on purchasing a DSLR to upgrade from an HD Camcorder. For the past month or so, I've been looking at the Canon T3i. It's not overly expensive and the tilting LCD is a big plus (coming from a camcorder user). The only thing that's making me hesitate is the new T4i which features autofocus. I've been using a camcorder for three years and it's all autofocus, so I've never had to use manual during filming.
Hi Guys I've just upgraded to a Canon 600d and wondered if someone could give me a straight forward answer about which lens to choose for film, without all the indepth technical stuff. (Cheaper the better, because i'm still learning).
I'm after makes/models that will fit the Canon 600d with links if possible.
I'm new to the forum and I have done a search with nothing on the question I'm going to ask so if its been asked already or it sound dum then I apologize.
I have been filming for about a year now on and off, using a Canon XL1 which I bought off ebay. However after a year I have noticed that most people swear by DSLR's for video work and I have the chance of buying a Canon 600d.
So the question is... Should I move on from the Canon XL1 which has been an excellent camera to a Canon 600d which is within my price range.
Hey! Alright, I have a budget of up to 2,500 for my 2nd camera, I'm researching around this budget. I am already working with a Canon VIXIA HF-M41, so I'm sticking with Canon.
Basically I want to know y'all opinion on this matter. Should I get the more professional looking, yet older model, XH-A1S or the small lightweight, yet effective and newer model, the XA10. They both have advantages and disadvantages. Any input is very appreciated.
I currently own a Canon Gl2, and have recently seen some test footage from a T2i which has significantly better than the footage I can get from my Gl2, probably due to the smaller sensor on my Gl2. My question is would it be wise selling my Gl2 and buying a T2i to replace it, and possibly purchase an additional lens for the T2i? I will mainly be using it for Narrative shorts. Thanks!
