  • If you are new to editing, I would strongly recommend you get a beginner version of software.  The only exception is if there is a particular feature that you need which is only in the pro ...
  • I have a 70D and a Tascam DR-40 and some XLR mics. I used to have a shotgun mic similar to your Takstar unit (but actually much more expensive). It takes more work to record audio separately and ...
  • There is one video and one password.  I typed it twice in my post to try to prevent people from clicking on the link without noticing it.  Uh... maybe that was just more confusing. I don't mind ...
  • Here is a video I'd like to share. It is the menu from the disk I made last year. So when you inserted the disc, first my "Carlson Productions" - like the MGM lion - would play automatically. And ...
  • IMO, the most important difference between a camera and a camcorder for casual use is improved image stabilization. You have to be very careful when handholding a S120 to get decent video, or ...
  • The 55-250 STM is $129 refurbished right now.  It seems to me that the only way to upgrade performance on that lens is to upgrade to a full frame camera and get a 100-400 which is over $1300 for ...
  • Note that to a kid, the look of the camera will be important, and impact how fun it is to use. To a kid, a DSLR is a "professional" camera.  With it, she will feel like she is taking great ...
  • My daughter is turning 12, my other daughter is 10 and will be 11 soon.  Both of them regularly use my Canon 70d, including with a rather heavy Sigma 18-35 f/1.8.  They can certainly handle a ...
  • I enjoy learning how to do things. So I find myself picturing in my head what I want to do, and then figure out how to do it. Setting photos to the beat of the music is one example. I enjoyed ...
  • Replied in Content is King
    I go through the visual content – videos and photos – for the time frame and choose the best. In general I’ll make it sequential, but re-arrange to get a better flow and match the feeling. I tend ...
  • The next question is: what is the medium? I make disks and send through the snail mail. I would not post my videos on Facebook, because Facebook is very transient. My videos, the disks, are more ...
  • The first and most important questions are: who is the audience? What are you trying to express? My audience is my family and friends – basically the people in the video and immediate relatives. ...
  • I’ve enjoyed the responses so far. I’m surprised at how much I agree with what has been written, and how my experience is similar. I don't know if I have much wisdom, but I'll post my opinions / ...
  • Replied in For what uses?
    We need more information in order to provide advice. What kind of uses do you have? Will you want to hand hold or use a tripod? Do you need to be able to shoot at a high aperture and blur the ...
  • No, he isn't joking.  Don't zoom to 1:1, that is the point.  When the images takes up my full monitor, it is about 10" tall.  At that size, the image quality is quite nice.  So if you want to ...
  • For a short while, I had both the 70-300 IS non-L and the 55-250 STM. Based on my own testing, the 55-250 STM is slightly sharper at the tele end, and it focuses at least as well, perhaps a tad ...
  • Replied in Phenomenal
    I might have been the buyer of that one on Ebay.  I got it a few days ago.  I only had a day to play with it before my family left on vacation and took the camera.  (I'm still home working, such ...
  • My 70d always underexposes when using my EX430 II. For me, it happens with direct or bounce flash, and it happens when I use FEL. So I set Flash Exposure Comp to +1 2/3.  That basically fixes the ...
  • Replied in Again, E F - M
    Ah, good point.  I believe the hybrid would be a short term solution - a bridge solution.  It could be sold at the same time as mirrorless.  In the long term, I still believe EF is not a solution ...
  • Replied in Again, E F - M
    IMO, option 1 makes the most sense by far.  I expect that canon has thought about this problem for a while before coming up with the EOS M Mount, so they should already know if this is the path ...
