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.

Cheers in advance

Hi Guys

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.

-Tim

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!

Hello guys! I need some help shooting a video that I will be sending on a local tv station. I am just doing some b-rolls for a motocross event and I will be using a dsrl (canon t2i.) I know that it needs to be 30 fps & 1/60th shutter speed. I might set my aperture to f15 to get dof and 100-200 for the ISO. I will be shooting mostly wide shots and I just want to get the best exposure as possible. I'll be using the Daylight preset for my WB. Will these settings work?

Thanks guys!

Hi.

I am struggling to decide between the Panasonic TM/HS-900 and the Canon Vixia HF G10. The camera will be use for family movies and ocasional very low budget documentaries and some work like live theater recording and industrial video.

The G10 is said to have outstanding low light capabilities, which is a real plus for shooting indoor with ambient light for home movies and documentaries, but the G10 is USD 400 more than the TM900.

Hi there! I want to know if there is a correct way of white balancing video on dslrs. I have a Canon t2i and I really want to stay away from auto white balance as much as possible. I normally use presets like daylight (on a sunny day where the light is harsh) but what do you use when your indoors and there are a lot of different lights that can mess up your white balance?

Any tips/comments/suggestions are welcome!

Thanks!<span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>

Working away on a few video projects. This one is an SNL parody, has a lot of energy and fun cast. Hope you enjoy. Music video done for a Bat Mitzvah event.

Once again, I would like to thank Videomaker for enhancing and developing some of my skills. Don't know where I would be without you.
