So far my blog has survived on the surprisingly good quality of my iPhone 5c camera, aside from the odd DSLR shot here and there when I've managed to get my hands on one.
However, having recently landed myself a job which involves making videos (eek) for a company, I figured it might be time to invest in a good quality DSLR to help me along my bloggy way.
My heart is set on the Canon 600D as it's the model I've become accustomed to at university but also (and this is the major determining factor here) you can flip the viewfinder around so you can see yourself while you're filming - eliminating any chance of filming the entire thing out of focus.
So what I wanted to ask you knowledgeable people is do you think the 600D is worth the investment and if you know of anywhere that offers second hand DSLRs in good condition.
Please tell me about your experience with DSLRs and if you know the answer to any of these, I'd love to hear what you think:
- am I better off getting a MacBook to deal with HD video files?
- is it too much hassle lugging around a DSLR?
- are there any video editing programmes for a MacBook (should I purchase one) that don't cost the earth?
Can't wait to hear from you all!
