The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2 - Page 1451  

post #21751 of 21761
Speaking of Sony, I finally decided to invest is a proper DSLR in hopes if improving video quality on my YouTube channel. I placed an order a couple of days ago for an Alpha A5000. I found a nice deal in Amazon Warehouse deals and got it for 396 shipped. In my neck if the woods it usually retails for 450 plus 13% tax. I saved myself a good 70 bones.

Thanks Silent, I'm both excited and a little apprehensive about the new camera. I decided to go with the A5000 because it had some key features I needed for making videos and a lot of camera sites were rating the A3000 and A5000 as good entry level DSLRs for novice photographers who were shopping around for their first DSLR. From what I've researched it's auto setting is pretty good and it's also pretty noob friendly for people who know very little about photography. The Canons I looked into were a little cheaper but they seemed to all have a steeper learning curve and their auto setting wasn't touted as noob friendly as the Sonys I researched.

I'm glad you're looking into the adventure. By moving to bring us the best, it may bring the best out of you yet!

I hope so. I really want to make my channel more professional looking and this is my first big step towards it. I'm also guessing it'll be the first step towards further depleting my wallet due to me researching better lighting, lens, tripods etc.

Here's hoping I don't find a photography forum version of head-fi or I'll really be screwed.

Great choice DF! I'm a firm believer that the least important part of photography is the camera. Once you step-up to a quality camera, it doesn't really matter whether it is Sony, Canon, Nikon, etc - they are all excellent and capable of taking great shots. The light, subject, shot composition and your skill in putting it all together is the real challenge. Of those, understanding how to use light is probably what gives the most bang for yer buck. Even with the best auto settings, you still need to understand what the light is doing to your scene. It's what turns a picture that is flat & lifeless into one that "pops".

Thanks billy_bob, I'm hoping that with time I'll eventually get it and finally be able to film some vids where the colors pop as you put it. It'll take some time though. Oh well, tis another journey within the journey of life.

I've seriously gotten into photography, thanks to James' influence. If you want to look into lighting, consider a kit like this:

 

http://www.amazon.com/LimoStudio-Photography-Portrait-Umbrella-Continuous-Lighting/dp/B005FHZ2SI/

 

The price makes it a steal of a deal. I'm actually considering it for when I start a portrait business.

I've thrown it into my saved for later list. Once I'm married and have my own place I'll probably pull the trigger. For under 40 bones I doubt I could go wrong

Depends on how much room you have to work with right?  ;)
