  1. What do you guys recommend for some good starter lenses for video, especially since I'll be on a boat and need mostly wide-angle?   So far, I've been looking at the following: (all NIKKOR lenses) 20mm f/2.8D AF 24mm f/2.8D AF 28mm f/2.8D AF 35mm f/2.0D AF 50mm f/1.4D AF   Which of these lenses would be the best to start off with? It probably wouldn't be entirely out of the question to pick up all of them if you all think it's a good idea. I just need to make sure I have all of my bases covered (Photography and Videography).   Thanks again for all of the help so far, everyone! :)
  2.   Thanks for the info! Just read through the whole thread. Lots of very useful info in there. :)   Thanks again!
  3. Thanks for the info, Moongoat. :) Reasoning for the shoulder rig is that for my first "project", I plan on shooting some video on a boat. What would be the best way to stabilize the video? What should I be looking at? Thanks in advance! :)
  4. Would you all consider this to be a decent shoulder rig?
  5.   Thanks for the additional info, Julian. :)   I think I'm like 99% set on the D7100 at this point.   Thank you to everyone for all the extremely helpful info! :D   Oh, another question - can anyone recommend, as Ben pointed out, a good Variable ND Filter, and a good stabilized shoulder rig?   Thanks, everyone! :)
  6.   Yeah, I hear ya. Still definitely leaning toward the D7100, because my primary focus is still Photography, but I'd like to get something that I can do and learn Videography with, as well.   So many choices, though. It's really making my head spin! lol
  7.   Thanks for the info, Ben! I am really leaning toward the D7100, but the lack of 1080p60 is driving me crazy. So many choices, and so much give-and-take, that my head is spinning! lol
  8.   Thanks for the input, JBraddock! I look forward to hearing your findings and initial impressions.   I think I, too, will go with the D7100. The only concern I have, so far, is the lack of 1080p60. Should this be a major concern? The Sony A77 looks to perform similarly to the D7100, but does have 1080p60; but, I've ready some not-so-nice things about the A77 - like Sony dropping some accessory support for it, etc.   Can anyone chime in, in regards to the A77?   Thanks so far for all of the input, everyone! Very much appreciated. :D
  9. Hm... So, in comparing the two: http://snapsort.com/compare/Nikon-D5200-vs-Nikon-D7100   I think I'll have to choose the D7100 - hands-down; because: It's Weather Sealed Almost double the battery life 2 Storage Slots vs 1, which sounds like it'll definitely come in handy Built-in Focus Motor The shutter speed is 2x faster That sounds like a real winner to me! :)   Anyone know of any other DSLRs that compete with the D7100 that I should be considering?   Thanks again! :)   Update: Any input on the Sony A77 vs the Nikon D7100? The Sony looks like an interesting option. Pros and Cons?
  10.   Any true down side(s) to going with a D5200 vs the D7100? If they're that close in performance, then why not save some money? :) lol   I just want to make sure I do as much research and fact-finding as possible, because I really don't want to make a mistake and buy the "wrong" camera. :(
  11.   Thanks for the quick reply, Julian!   Yes, it would be 50/50. I currently enjoy Photography as a hobby, and would like to add Videography to that list. :)   I guess the D7100 it is then! Any other options I should be looking into other than the Nikon? I had considered the 5D Mark II and the 7D, but I think that the D7100 has them handily beat. Am I correct?   Thanks again! :)
  12. So far, I think I've narrowed it down to the NEX-7 with SpeedBooster, the GH3, or the D7100. Pros and Cons? Advice? I'm currently using an original Canon Rebel XT and want to get into videography. Thanks in advance! :)
