True but like you said a camcorder is shoulder mounted, much easier than having something strapped around your neck and using two hands all day even though I find 5lbs pretty light myself.

After a quick few shots with the new 50mm lens it does have great bokeh (spelling? lol). With a new baby on the way I'll be able to do our own portraits instead of shelling out tons of $$ to a studio.

i heard the emount 50mm is magnificent. you should also look into the emount 35mm, heard that is a nice lens.

you still use both hands to balance a should mounted camera especially when it has a lot of weight. its not like it just sits on your shoulder no effort lol. not to mention picking it up and putting it down every time you are changing shots and its not like you can change shoulders if you get tired, you just have to drop it down and carry it by the handle. id take a 5 Lb DSLR handheld any day of the week if it was actually easy for field video shooting lol

carrying a 5Lb kit around your neck doesnt compare to how exhausting broadcast video equipment is. photographers honestly have it easier than video guys. smaller gear but lots of little stuff. video gear is less in number but larger in size and much heavier. unless you are doing field photography and are carrying portable prophoto battery packs. those are stupid crazy heavy if you have a pelican case full of them

Oh I agree with you, a lot of photographers complain about weight but I used to hike with Prosumer level camcorders and lenses and shoot with them with one hand while rolling on a skateboard haha. Cameras even with the heaviest of lenses on them are extremely light compared to a decent camcorder.

im talking professional broadcast cameras, prosumer cameras are nice and light, great for running around action stuff thumb.gif

I shoot with a Sony PDW-700 and sometimes on good days i get to use a pdw-335 if they need me to cover a lot of creative stuff in tight spaces biggrin.gif

I know that but still rolling around with a 3CCD camcorder in one hand and a century optics fisheye lens mounted to it is still a lot heavier than a professional camera with a heavy lens on it.

mz- yeah it was a toss up for mmy budget at the moment... 35mm will be nice to have but my wife flipped at the 50mm (sticker shock at a PC build + adobe + camera lol). I am hoping to get good enough I can commercialize myself to gain another small income source. Mainly via portraits for family/friends. 50mm was key for that.

Anyone have thoughts on those entry level muslin stand/light kits they sell on amazon? Are they flimsy and cheap?

So, I need a new sd card so I can shoot video on my t2i. I am currently trying the deside between: the cheap slow one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820208567 , which some people say stops recording after a while, the expensive fast one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820171566 , and maybe even the cheap supposedly fast one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313250 .

 

Thoughts?

im not familiar with 'Team'

but transcend and Sandisk are good. i usually go for sandisk, idk why just what my friends and I have always used

---

and amateurbuilder: while im not totally against cheap lighting i will say that cheap light stands make me generally uneasy. i have had to borrow cheap light stands before once and the stand collapsed during shooting. didnt have a heavy light source on it, was using the lights that the stand came with but it just gave out from the weight or something and just went from fully extended to all the way down :/ was not cool. so since then even when using cheap lights, i try to at least use some mid range stands.
