Hi, new here so thanks in advance for any help on this.

I made a short movie last year on a borrowed Sony A1 and I've got my next short in development. I'm trying to work out what camera to buy. Do I go down the DSLR route and take advantage of the 35mm lens changing capability to add to the movie look? Or do I stick to video cameras? Not hugely clued up here so really happy I've found this site. Any thoughts for making something that has some of the look of film but all of the benefits of digital?

I shoot video in the clubs and most of the time i use either the hvx 200 or the canon hfs 20. i have no problem with these cameras wen it comes to digital noise due to low light. However, wen i attempt to use the 5d mark 2 no matter what i do, i always seem to get plenty of noise in the video, i see ppl use the 50d 60d and the 7d, i dont know how their footage comes out b.u.t im assuming its coming out better than mine. when i had this problem with the hvx or the hfs i just limited the agc to 9 and that solved the problem, no more noise.

I shot with a DSLR and I have been looking into getting an xlr adapter box such as the one made by Beachtek so I can use xlr mics. After thinking, I was wonder what the difference would be if I just bought an xlr to 1/8 (1/8 goes into my dslr) cable as long as my mic is powered? Thats $10 vs $300...am I missing something here?

Some friends and I decided we'd like to try and do a short film. So we made an outline to write, score, film, and edit in 12 hours and this is the outcome! Shot entirely with a hacked GH1 and a 50mm canon fd lens

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Schizophrenic short film about a girl staying alone in the university dorm at a weekend. She starts to experience some inexplicable and mysterious phenomenons like time travels. There is also rumors about a guy who fell down the dorm stairs and died a few years ago.
This is my first DSLR short film and I'm new to this stuff. If you have any advice let me know, I'm open to constructive criticism.
