I'm going to be a daddy soon. Yay!
What should I get to record video?
What should I get my wife for a point and shoot?
Any help would be appreciated.
but arent there like a 100 questions you should be asking before camera questions?
Film the birth in slo-mo with the iPhone 5S
- lol. We'll be sick of slo-mo very, very soon.formed
- but then you can speed it up selectively!jaylarson
- You're not sick of slo mo already? How about all those Michael Bay bad guys walking away from explosions they just set off?CyBrainX
- set off. Aren't they soo coooooll??CyBrainX
Just get an underwater housing for an iphone to protect from slobber and drool.
In all seriousness, you sound like a good candidate for one of the Samsung cameras with WiFi, like http://www.samsung.com/us/photog…
You're both gonna have your hands full, and for your wife wanting a point and shoot, seems super convenient to be able to upload photos to the web (I think) right from the camera. Don't these allow uploading to Facebook and emailing?
Get a good one.
I just got a Canon M (and one for my father). So far, it is good for what I bought it for. I am a Nikon guy, but this was a pretty good deal:
I'd prefer a Fuji, but at 3 times the price, I'll wait. Fuji should have a full frame mirrorless (or Sony) soon. Then I'll rethink things, for now, this Canon is so light it'll work fine (compared to my Nikon D800 w/ battery)
I thought about a new iPhone (my contract is up pretty soon anyway), but these are all good suggestions.
I don't see why we're ruling out higher end cameras. SLRs all have video now. You can get something awesome you can set up and be prepared for or just take the phone out for more spontaneous diaper sagas.
How about getting a camera that posts directly to your Facebook account, so that ALL your friends can enjoy and experience every single little cute detail your baby does from now til he/she gets his or her own Facebook account.
70d has pretty amazing video recording...
I've shot music videos on DSLR's like Canon 5D mark II and various Nikons, these are great if you can control the situation and do manual focus and ask the talent to do things over and over until its right...
Most DSLR's would be difficult to shoot baby and kid videos, unless the kid is very still, or you have a newer tech AF system, as Canon's "Dual Pixel AF" seemed very good in my few minutes of testing... more like a "conventional video camera" than a DSLR in the focussing, but still a DSLR for the low light and depth of field control....
the 70d has tracking focusing... and its amazingly accurate and quiet.
