….. interchangable senses, that i can fit canon EF lenses to?
Having been into photography for a few years, I’m looking at taking a sideways step and trying my hand at a spot of videography. I don’t really know where to start looking.
I know that there are cameras out there with changable lenses, and that EF adapters are available, meaning that i could fit some of my Canon L lenses to it (unless there is any reason whyI can’t).
I would be looking into keeping at what i do best – outdoor sports (climbing, kayaking etc) andwildlife. I would likethe bestquality i can get for no more than 2000, preferablywith the ability to fit my curent lenses.
Have you looked into the newr DSLRs that can now do HD Video as well? I know some of those get pretty spendy relatively quick but they migh allow you to continue to use the lense you do have saving some money on that point. Take a look at the newer models of the one you are currently using.
Thanks Craftersoflight, Its an interesting thought.
The only problem i have with it is that they are geared more towards photography rather than video. Given thatI already have all that i need for photography, it would be a shame to spend that money on something that only has one function over whatI already have. AlthoughI know i might be able to fit my lenses to it, i would much prefer something more specific tovideo,still with the ability to fit my lenses to it!
Thanks for your thoughts!
You should be able to geta usedstandard definitionCannon Xl2for around $2395.00 – 1635.78
A new one will probably cost slightly more than 2000.00…if you just want the camera body, you should be able to find a new one for exactly 2000.00
*note the EF adapters are additional.
A high defintioninterchangeable lens model such as Xl H1 may be had to find for under 2000.00… You may want to consider just purchasing the camera body if you want HD, but that will stll run around 3000.00 for a brand new HD model…
Here are some more references:
“In addition to accepting the full line up of Canon’s XL lenses — including the 16x IS II Auto focus lens, 16x Mechanical Servo Zoom lens, 3x Wide Angle, the 1.6x Extender and the EF adaptor for use with Canon’s full line of EF photographic lenses – Canon is launching a new Professional L-series 20X Optical zoom lens, included with the XL2.”
There may be some magnification issues with video making many lenses more appropriate for nature use.
Fantastic, Thanks Coreece, just what i wanted to hear!
I’ve included those additional references since my knowledge is limited in regards to this specific issue….so I hopeit helps you.
