A camera for Stop motion

Postby Lucille » Mon Jul 03, 2006 11:43 pm

Hello Barry! How are you? I hope everything its okay with you..

I keep making my film "The portrait of the pestilence" here in Buenos Aires. My puppets are almost finished and also my miniatures. I am very excited and happy. It's been a year and a half od pre-production!

I am thinking about capturing the frames with a digital still camera because they have great quality and I have my old Nikon F lenses to use. Did you ever worked with these kind of cameras logged on the computer ? And how do you see your animation while you're doing it ? I am asking you because I've been doing research for a long time now, and it seems there is not a standard for this, and I am kind of lost when it comes to know if it could work or not.

Thank you again for your amazing class! I watch your films all the time and I keep learning and getting emotional!

the best of luck and thank you
Lucy :!:
