I’ve been experimenting with motion-tracking within Blender and I’m thinking about buying a camera to shoot my own footage, but I’m not really sure what to look for…
I have done some research but most of the topics I found were outdated or very unclear.
This are the requirements that I could collect
>> it should be full HD (1080p)
>> Avoid HDV or DV cameras
>> HDMI- or HD-SDI output with a capture card with HDMI input
>> Avoid camera’s that do ‘Image stabilization’ cause they distort your frames and make tracking impossible.
I know Andrew Price uses a photo-camera (Canon 550D) with movie-mode to shoot his footage. Is that better or worse then a movie-camera?
All tips would be most welcome.
What kind of camera do you guys have/use?
What kind of frame-rate would be recommendable?(I mean Blender normally uses 24 fps…)
And maybe even more important: What kind of a budget am I looking at?
Thanks in advance!
