    Default Best Camera For Footage/Photos?

    Hey guys,

    I was wondering what would be the best choice of a camera for footage/photos? I will be saving up and buying one this summer. Also what would be the best fish eye lens to buy with it? Thanks.

    If you want to do both, then you should get a dslr. I'd say a Canon 60d and for a fisheye you can use an opteka I guess

    For the fisheye i would go for an Opteka lens, just got a Opteka Titanium Series 0.3X Ultra. the only downside is that its a little heavy, but the rest i great!

    Not going to put that on a dslr.... and obviously it's going to weigh the front of the camera down, you adding weight to the front...

    I'd go with the Canon 5D. Wider lens capabilities than the 7D and T2i, and gives great video (and obviously amazing photos)

    I don't know, I've seen some rich 15 year olds with ridiculous cameras... and girls that think they're "photographers."

    I'm to recommend against getting a Nikon d3100 or d5000. They love to make moving things look like jello, even if you know how to shoot. For stills, they are great!
