Something is wrong, James. With a D60 you should to have an extra quality picture. So the problem is editing and exporting ! I can't remember the settings in Vegas 8 (I have Vegas 10), but I think that you should try Sony AVC/MVC exporting option,with a 720p frame size,progressive scan, 2,500.000 bit rate,format mp4 ! That should work fine for a YTube !



Thanks Sinisa. I'll give this a try on my next REC.
Wait a minute. I think Vegas 8 may not have the MP4 exporting option. Might be time to update to Vegas 10. The upgrade isn't cheap though. Can I get by with the "Studio HD" version, or do I have to get "Pro"?

Awesome thread! smile.gif I've used Nikons for many of my recent lessons, but never used Canon. I've heard good things about the Canon EOS line.

The best thing with Nikons and photo cams are lenses. They are BIG, and they point more light onto the chip. This is why they are better than cams. Good lens can cost almost as a body.


Just an fyi - Canon has a larger standard base ring, so Canons inherantly have a larger "f-stop" ability than the Nikon, making them better suited for low-light levels. Also the next generation Canon (EOS-1D Mark IV) is boasting an 12,800 ISO. Traditionally, you were lucky if you could get a workable picture (due to grain) with 1,200.

I've used the Nikon SLRs for 5 years, before going to Canon. Now I swear by Canon and so do most professional photographers (my wife is a second generation photographer - 30 years) and making the transition from film to digital was a pain, but she's used both Nikon and Camera and decided Canon was the way go. They have amazing lenses.

Cheers!

Rode Video mic



Very useful gadget if you are going to improve your DSLR audio quality. Price is very reasonable ($149) ,if we look at the most commonly used audio recorder Zoom H4n ($284) !

Flycam


Flycam is a lightweight stabilizer that prevents shaky shots.This compact hand held system takes away the need for tripods or dolly's, giving videographers the ability to create smooth videos while the camera is in motion.

Okay this is a camcorder. This Canon HF M40 looks promising.
There is some footage. It seems to respond to the movement well. I want something that will capture my guitar riffing and not cause a rolling shutter effect. I'm assuming I dubbed the "blinds look" correctly. As this video does - even though it's in lower light. It's a lower end quality cam though.

I am amazed at the quality of shots. I see that the camera is among the top 5 consumer cams ! An excellent choice! Do not worry about a rolling shutter effect / quality camcorders don"t have that problem. Some customers have found it for a $ 450, which is incredible, buy it now. Only downside I've found is the touch screen- is a bit tricky to use it especially if you have large fingers, the operating area is small. but I believe it is all a matter of get used to.

User reviews say enough about the quality of this camera.

Game changer. The RED is no longer the king of the hill, nor is CANON, or the other big DSLR cams. This thing is so advanced I thought it was fake! I can't wait to get my hands on one!

Uhh, this will be a sensation, great specs !!!! But looking at some forums dedicated to this subject - the price is actually much higher. Beware that you must have a separate video card of the same company, the camera is useless without, MAC for editing, at least 24 gb ram .. etc.. But in any case, I would like to be able to afford it wink.gif

Good point. The Glass can really get pricey as well. Once you kit it up, closer to 10k for a full camera. But this is a Digital Cinema camera so it will be in Rental Houses and such. My main point is that this establishes a new bar and It bodes well for consumer market. Now the major vendors will have to reach high and the cameras available to us regular folks are going to get way better and cheaper as this technology "democratizes" in a year or two.

biggrin.gif It's got the flip-out screen feature like I wanted so I can see myself, but retains the DSLR look. A local photographer and friend highly recommended it. He also told me about the 50 mm lens. (I bought the 18-55 mm lens with it.) He has a 50 mm and he said I could come over and try it out on my new camera. I'm so excited! I'm ordering the T3i next Monday. wink.gif
