DSLR Guide update: Choosing a DSLR

06.14.10 @ 9:01AM Tags : , ,

In the DSLR Guide I originally wrote, “One could write an entire guide on choosing a DSLR, but that is a never-ending and ever-changing debate that I can’t resolve for anyone; each shooter’s DSLR choice comes down to availability, price point, and their own particular needs.” While I still believe that, I’ve gotten a number of emails in the past few weeks asking questions to the extent of, “Canon 5D or 7D?” and “Canon T2i or Panasonic GH1?” This made me realize the guide jumps right into talking about buying lenses and support systems without offering an overview of the relative strengths and weaknesses of each DSLR when it comes to shooting movies. I hope this update answers these questions and forms a better starting point for the rest of the guide.1 Choosing a DSLR »

  1. As I was writing my own DSLR comparison, to my chagrin Philip Bloom came out with a similar post last week; feel free to check out his post, as we’re answering the same questions. []


We’re all here for the same reason: to better ourselves as writers, directors, cinematographers, producers, photographers... whatever our creative pursuit. Criticism is valuable as long as it is constructive, but personal attacks are grounds for deletion; you don't have to agree with us to learn something. We’re all here to help each other, so thank you for adding to the conversation!
