Ive decided I'm going to sell my Gopro and upgrade to a better camera. Because guys, lets be serious the go pro is not what it lives up to be. But yeah i was just wondering if you guys had any good ideas for something to upgrade to, not too expensive. But a good camera for filming and such.
Well op didnt really provide really anything he was looking for. Just a step up from the gopro and argurably the most popular an d most justified jump into filming with dslrs is the t3i. So please try and argue why op shouldnt get the t3i
More? How so..
with DSLR you can change lenses, manually change shutter and iso and focal length, things you can't do with those type of cameras (excuse me if I'm wrong, I've never bothered to really look into those).
However OP if you're familiar with any photography with a DSLR, def get one. You'll feel more familiar around the camera like me.
P.S. hate all you want, but GoPro's are not "over rated". It's just like any other camera you have to get used too and learn. They never promised amazing customizability with shooting, just a very strong/rugged camera that shoots high resolution footage and that's exactly what it does. Combine it with ProTune, Davinci resolve (or other good color correction footage), clean lens, and an experience filmer of a GoPro and I can produce stuff that will rival most DSLR edits on here.
Take this for example, 100% with stock GoPro's using everything listed above.
Interchangeable lens, ability to shoot nice pictures as well as video, you can shoot auto or manual, manual if you want further control, relatively cheap, allows him to get as into it or as not into it as he wants.
It was just a recommendation man. It doesn't mean there are no other good options. Both thec cameras eheath reccomended looked nice aswell. But I was really reccomending hddslrs, and a good choice for getting into dslrs is the t3i. So calm down
yeah maybe they dont seem overrated but i for one agree with op on this. I myself have hero 3 white edition. quite regularly i have problems where it will randomly stop recording or wont even turn on unless i plug into my PC first. It shoots like crap in low lighting and the quality isn't all that great. Its a great camera for 200$ especially since i had just started filming action sports when i got it. But to say the least, I also need an upgrade. If anyone cares to reply, i'm looking for something cheaper than 300$ that shoots good video. Doesn't have to be DSLR and doesn't have to be new.
No.... The zoom on DSLR lenses is the worst thing for video. Video cameras have parafocal lenses with servos so you can actually zoom while you film. And any decent video camera will have a zoom ring as well but it'll be smooth.
Did you not read the post? Just because I reccomend something doesnt mean I am saying there are no other good choices. The t2i is essentially the same thing. I just believe the flippy screen is worth the extra cash but I agree if you wanna save a bit of money it's not essential
