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.
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!

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.

Have you seen this new lens yet?
I've always been looking for something like this. I hope they come out with the version for Nikon soon! Looks like just for Canon DSLR right now.
Here's some test footage I found on someone else's channel:
I know this sounds stupid. What would be the main difference between 24fps & 30fps? I know filmmakers use 24fps to have that "film" look but why do some people use 30fps? What if you were to do a product commercial or an event video such as wedding or concert, what frame rate would you use and why? Is it just for the aesthetic look of video to do 24fps? I am a little bit confused by this.
Any ideas/comments are greatly appreciated!
