Good Camera To Film Diabolo
« on: February 05, 2012, 10:05:43 am »
I need a camera / Camcorder; mainly for recording me diaboloing. It needs to be able to do the following
1. Be able to record into 1080p
2. Have quite a good FPS rate (Frames Per Second)
3. Be able to see the string (I dont know if its just my camera that cant seem to pick it up [Henrys Yellow])
4. Have a quite good battery life (Around 120 Minutes of continuous filming)
5. Cost less than £500


I am in need of this quite soon for my GCSE art project (I will upload the final piece to the site in around 3 months when the course has finished).
Thanks in advance,
Matty

I don't know about the price but I'm pretty sure a Canon T2i (550D) would be good for that.

ya i would definately go with the cannon 550 (around £450) or the nikon d3100 i have the nikon and starting to sorta want the cannon but ya. an HDSLR is definately the way to go if your willing to spend up to £500.
 
thanks
