I recently purchased a DSLR rig and have been getting asked by many of my film maker friends to give my opinion since many of them are also on the hunt for a good rig.

Nikon Unveils New Flagship: The D810

the all new Nikon D810 with the nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8
Over the years Nikon has widely become known for having exceptional sensors and processors. If you go to any source that rates sensors, you'll see Nikon's FX line littering the top 10. This has made Nikon a pretty obvious choice for photographers, but in the videography world Nikon has always been cast behind Canon's all-encompassing cult-like shadow.

Hi guys,


Looking to record long events (ice hockey games) using my Canon 600d DSLR (i know, not ideal, but as of now, I can't afford anything else), but don't know how to record the footage onto a hard drive rather than numerous SD cards to garuntee that recording isnt going to stop as the card is full. Is there a way to my 600d upto my macbook pro and record it through that?


Thanks in advance.

hi fellow artist :)


i am need of some advice. i am graphic designer working in a theme park in doha. I record the birthday parties that are held in our park.a I also use FCP X as my software platform. I would like up my skills in this department since I am slowly gaining experience as well.


As a start i would like to do small birthdays and engagement events coz they will be the small start i am looking for. It would also be the right way for me to go. Do it as a hobby for now and slowly start charging.

Hey Videomaker community!


I'm looking for a decent prime lens for my T2i with a nice, low f-stop.  My price range is around $100.  I've shopped around on Amazon, but not found anything to my liking.  You guys are amazing, please point me in the right direction!

Hi Everybody,

I've been getting more and more into videography as a hobby, and I'm hoping to make a little cash doing videography on weekends. I have some questions and need some advice. I'd love to hear what you veterans have to say...

I have an awesome EOS 5D it takes amazing pictures and video, I love it. The big problem I have is with the audio. I've been looking into getting a shot gun style microphone attachment. If anyone could answer some questions for me about microphones and maybe even a little bit about your background, I'd be super grateful.

Can anyone recommend a good shoulder mount rig for the Canon 5D Mark II? Something for less than $500 that includes follow focus, and zoom control, plus perhaps an LCD monitor? Not sure it would be realistic to expect an LCD monitor with a setup like this for less than $500.

Greetings -


I mainly shoot interviews and eng-type pojects, with my main camera a full-size Panasonic AVCHD cam, and that works well for me. I'm looking to buy a new second cam, and am looking to find something that will add some new options to my arsenal. I want to stay in the $500-$1,000 range if possible.


I can't seem to find much info on the sound capabilities of many of the DSLR's (some manufacturer's sites don't mention external audio inputs and controls, while some independent reviews only briefly mention them).

Hi, i'm a musician and trying to learn dslr video. After purchasing my rebel t5i recently, I shot my first music video and edited. I thought my musician friend had a great song and we wanted to shoot an amateur clip.

I'm just getting into the dslr video and don't know too much as far as cameras and lenses. i decided to signed up here to get feedback and to look for tips to get better. could you guys take some minutes to watch my video and tell me how good or bad i'm doing?

My first music video (I am not the musician):
