    Default New Camera?

    During the summer i'm expecting to be getting a new camera, with fisheye. So what i'm asking is what camera would be best to get for under $600?. Also what is a good fisheye that would be good to get with it. The camera must have a filter diamater, so i can screw the fisheye on. Thanks

    Do you happen to know roughly how much the camera and lens would cost? Also where's a good place to find a handle for the camera.

    Make your own handle, you can do it cheap. Used century babydeath, around 100 bucks.

    The nikon was my second choice! actually it was my first, i couldnt chose. but i got the canon rebel xs. its great so far, i mean im not super professionnal so its hard to tell, but im liking it. i think the nikon doesn't have the live view option, which is seeing the picture through your lcd screen instead of the view finder.

    White Carbon Matrix plus 60-70# RKT 31.5" draw
    Green Vantage Elite 40-50# SpiralX 31" draw

    Its personal preference. Neither is better. My camera takes tapes, and I love it. I have no problem with it at all.

    Well... most cameras that take SD cards are HD these days so yes, there will be a difference in picture quality.

    Do you know if the quality varys tho between the two. I heard that footage from tapes is smother. Im just wondering because i want to know if my new camera should be tape or sd, its going to be hd for sure either way.

    Lmao, i dunno man. I'm just looking for suggestions for a new camera. I want one that's HD. The real decision for me now is whether it should be tape of SD card. What do you think Stu?
