wow, great pic!
Well it's obviously HDR so it's kinda cheating and mostly just Photomatix magic, but thanks anyway guys
I've been recording a friend's EP (non-metal) over the last couple of days and taking some snaps at the same time. Very low lighting most of the time so it's pretty tricky work!
Thinking about getting a camera. Are there any affordable ones that can shoot decent videos as well? I mainly need it for indoor photos and recording footage. I'm OK with buying second-hand. Not set on any brand yet, but I suppose it would be nice if I could borrow some of the lenses my brother bought for his d7000. All suggestions are appreciated.
Whats your budget? Since your brother has a Nikon (and i'm also more into Nikons) you can look at the beginner models from Nikon: D3100, D5100 or D3200.
I own the D5100 which has a rotatable screen (nice for shooting video's), and even with the standard kitlens you can shoot great pictures at high ISO levels:
One thing: Your brother's D7000 has a built-in focus motor (the D3100, D3200 and D5100 don't have a focus motor). So you have to check that the lenses he owns have a built-in focus motor, or else you have to manually focus. All Nikon lenses with AF-S have a built-in focus motor.
The 5100 is pretty cool, was one of my options, but I got the Canon 600d (T3i)
Today I received a new lens:
Yashica Yashinon 50mm f1.7, M42 mount, I'm using it with an adapter that has focus confirmation chip.
Budget's pretty tight to be honest. Might have to save up for a D3100 and grab one new, since good video quality seems to be a fairly new thing for affordable DSLRs, so there are hardly any second-hand offers. I don't mind using manual focus as I won't be dealing with too much movement.
A quick test with the Yashica:
i think it turned out nice, for being completely unedited (just resized)
Ended up grabbing a Nex-5 body for ~160 and a 15 M39 adapter so I can use an old Jupiter-8 lense I borrowed.
It's not amazing I guess but video quality is great. I'll upload something when I have better lighting. Still learning and had to test it indoors with really bad lighting but to give you some idea:
A couple pics with the M42 mount Yashica Yashinon DS-M 50mm and the Canon 600d.
Shot Steve vai the other day. Great player!
Another one with the Yashica.

Pretty girl, and beautiful portraits. That Nex5 can make great pictures, who needs a huge dslr now?
The first one is nice, but all your pictures have a weird nasty quality thing going on. Thats probably your upload service (Facebook?), but i also see some ugly blur (noise reduction?) + your copyright logo is annoying and ugly and it really brings the whole picture down.
thats my brother's idea
he is a dick :/
