My life, on tumblr. Probably the most realistic me you can find online. Which means I am NSFW most of the time, offensive other times, and the rest of the time I am just weird.
It’s… interesting. It’s not something I can see using ‘blind’ as it were. You can’t keep the LCD off between shots from what I can tell. The menus are sometimes a bit inside out or so. The dial on the back for your thumb to adjust the ISO is nice, but a bit stiff. The fact that I have to curl my hand weird to push the button so I can adjust the aperture with the dial I mentioned prior is odd. There’s a nice button on for your thumb on the side that can be reconfigured, but not for aperture… or anything really useful from what I can tell. The viewfinder readout is okay, but I think it could offer up some more information, why not put some things on the sides as opposed to jamming it all on the bottom?
That all being said, I still like it as a dSLR. I am really glad she lent it to me! :D
I already own two SLRs ( Canon T50 and Sears KSX-P ( Which is a rebrand of the Chinon CP-5 ) ) but I mean, they are film only, and my little point and shoot really doesn’t do everything I want out of a camera. Not that I can afford a DSLR, but hypothetically speaking I want to get one.
Nearly the absolute number one feature I want is video recording, at the very least 720p, but 1080 is preferred. As is at least 24fps, but up to 60 would be great. But that doesn’t clear up a lot of choices, does it? I still have so many brands to choose from. And to be honest, they are all confusing to me, and would take getting used to.
The only thing really swaying me is I have two K-Mount lenses, and Pentax still uses the K-Mount ( in a vastly updated form ) on their DSLRs. And to be honest, the K-x or the K-r don’t look half bad as cameras. But is that really what I want? I know with an old lens I get to do everything manually, but that is fine really. But also I could be swayed because the sensors in Nikon and Canon cameras are slightly better for the price point.
So here I am, broke mind you, but stuck with a dilemma. Cause a nice DSLR would aid in videography a TON. And that seems to be something I have been getting into, doesn’t it? Anyone have any DSLRs that do video they are willing to part with for cheap? Heh, or at least suggestions based off of personal use?
