  • How do I connect two USB microphones to a camera to film audio and video at the same time on one file?

    I am trying to film a talkshow type video where there will be four people sitting on couches surrounding a table. I bought two USB Mics which will be situated on the table. Specifically I bought two of the Cyber Acoustics CVL-2004. I am trying to film the camera video and audio from the two mics together in one file. So I don't want the audio to be one file and the video to be another - I want them together. How can I do this? Someone recommended that I get external audio interface and connect the mics to the interface then connect the interface to the camera through a XLR or 3.5mm cable. I went to Canada Computers & Best Buy but they said they didn't an interface for USB mics. Somebody else said I could connect the mics directly to my MacBook Pro so that the laptop acts as an interface and then connect an aux cord from my laptop to the camera. But other people said that wouldn't work. If it does, would I need a specific program for that? At this point I'm just lost & hopefully one of you brilliant internet peeps can help me out! Please be as detailed as possible because I am not tech saavy at all... clearly! My camera is a Cannon EOS 60D by the way! Thanks in advance! :)

    Hi, so I recently purchased a secondhand Nikon lite touch zoom 70w film camera. I loaded a 24 exp. roll of film into it and have been taking photos over the past few days since, but today I managed to take an extra shot - the number on the display says 25 now but I know the roll I purchased has only 24 exposures so what is up? I have the manual for the camera and it says that when the roll is finished the camera automatically rewinds itself and when the letter "E" appears on the display only then is the back safe to opened and the roll to be removed, but obviously it hasn t automatically rewinded. This is my first time using a film camera so I m unsure of how to proceed. I really do not want to lose any of the photos on this roll because of sentimentality and all that. What should I do to save them, what is the issue?

  • Does anyone know any good DSLR cameras for low light?

    Best answer: What I suggest that you do is first go to https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/SLR-D... to see what's on the market at your price range. On the left, you will see an option to select mirrorless camera or DSLRs. Both are equally good types of cameras.

    Here's a link to dpreview.com's app that allows you to see the difference between various cameras at various ISO settings. This web app will allow you to see which cameras have the least amount of noise. https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-c...

    One thing that you're likely to notice doing this research is that the cameras with the best high-ISO performance are those with fewer but larger pixels.

    If you can increase your budget to about $750, you'll end up with one of the absolute best cameras for low light: the Pentax D-70.
    What makes a $750 Pentax DSLR superior to a professional $6,000 Canon or Nikon is that only Pentax has in-body image stabilization. Since the sensor is doing the stabilization, this means that every single lens you use (including lenses from the 70s) will be stabilized. Imagine a $400 50mm f/1.4 on a $6,000 Nikon D5 in a dark situation that requires an exposure of 1/60th @ f/1.4. With a Pentax K-70 and a $50 used 50m f/1.4, you now have the ability to shoot at 5.5 stops lower ISO. This means that if with the Nikon you had to be at ISO 6,400, you could be shooting with the Pentax at only ISO 125. Because the Pentax can use such a massively lower ISO, it simply isn't possible to get as good of a shot with a $6,500 Nikon D5 kit.

    Pentax also uses sensor shift in what's called pixel shift. Take a look at the Bayer pattern of a modern CMOS sensor. It's an array of red, blue and green pixels. But what's interesting is that there are more red & blue pixels than green ones. Pixel shift moves the sensor 1 pixel at a time, takes three shots, and then combines them into one image with an increase in color and sharpness that's not possible with any other DSLR at any price.

    If you're into astrophotography, Pentax uses its pixel shift technology in what they call astro tracer. When taking shots of stars, you have to keep the shutter speed no longer than 30 seconds. Anything longer than 30 seconds, and the stars will show up as smudges or long trails due to the rotation of the Earth. Astro Tracer moves the sensor during the exposure to cancel out the rotation of the Earth. Net result is that you're no longer restricted to 30-second exposure with f/2.8 lenses at ISO 3200. Now, you can use a cheaper kit lens at f/4, lower your ISO and end up with amazing sky shots. If you used an f/2.8 lens, then you could lower your ISO even further and get Milky Way shots that would require motorized tripod heads with any other camera.

    If you can't afford a $750 Pentax K-70, then get a used K-50 on eBay for under $300 with a kit lens. Even though it's discontinued, the K-50 is still a better camera than the new entry-level DSLRs from Canon or Nikon.

    Best answer: You're most likely to find old new stock of T3i on eBay. Personally, I'm perfectly fine by buying one from KEH.com. While KEH won't sell a new T3i, they definitely often sell used T3i in excellent to mint condition. If you've ever purchased gear from keh.com, you know that they are famous for under-rating the condition of their gear. This, of course, means that everything you buy comes in better-than-expected condition. They also have a 6-month warranty on all of their gear. I did have to use it on my 200mm because it wasn't focusing. Received it fixed in about 3 weeks if I remember correctly, and it's been working fine for the past few years. Can't recommend Keh.com highly enough.

    A possible albeit tedious solution to finding a new T3i would to go onto Canon's website and find a list of dealers in your area, your state or for the entire region. Call each one and see if they just so happen to have an T3i that's old stock. Yeah, it's a long shot, but you really don't have a whole lot of options here.

Have tried the A, M and P but no matter how I set it I end up with a full focussed frame and the camera only seems to recognise shutter speed settings. I am trying to achieve a blurred background and have tried 3 different lenses, turning off AF and fiddling with every program on the camera! I'm guessing I'm missing something simple!

    Best answer: That's normal with a digital camera.... they burn through conventional disposable batteries in no time.

    When I got my first digital camera back in 2006 I remember one time I put some brand new Panasonic batteries in it... worked fine at home... walked half an hour into town, and the camera wouldn't turn on..... tested the batteries in a torch, and they still worked fine in that, but didn't have the juice left in 'em to power a digital camera after just turning the thing on twice.

    Most people just junk the disposable batteries that come with the camera as they're no good for anything other than torches + the TV remote, and upgrade to high capacity rechargeable ones (1800-2600+ mAh) otherwise you'll end up blowing a fortune on batteries.
    The most popular ones are a range from Sanyo called the "Sanyo Eneloop".... come ready charged, and last months
    https://amzn.to/2GhSsa1 (US Source)
    https://amzn.to/2GCJLGt (UK Source)
    I have the "Eneloop Pro" versions in a big old Fuji Bridge camera, and they usually go 12-18months between needing to be charged... more better known brands of rechargables such as "Energizer" seemed to just randomly drop their charge after a couple of weeks, so I got the Sanyo ones instead to see if they were any better, and they last months.
