CS5 and DSLR that will edit well

Mar 18, 2012 9:02 AM

My Kodak digital camera (still only) is malfunctioning... so I am going to need a replacement one of these days

 

Depending on cost and features, I am thinking about a DSLR so I can select an option on the camera to take movies as well as stills

 

I have not paid a great deal of attention to discussions of DSLR video editing, other than to note that there are sometimes/often? problems with the codec

 

So... for CS5 (not CS5.5 or CS6... I do not have the budget to upgrade) which DSLR camera produces video that will edit in the PPro I have?

    John T,

     

    Only from reading, and not from actual experience, it appears that the Canon D5 - D7 cameras do quite well, while the various Nikons (and I am a Nikon-guy) do not do so well.

     

    Maybe others will have direct experience to help you decide.

     

    Good luck and happy shooting (and editing),

    Take a look at the Panasonic GH2. 

     

    No idea what they cost where you are.

    John T,

     

    If you have not done so, you might want to look at the used equipment section of B&H Photo, and also Calumet Photo. Both are great companies, and both have top-quality used gear. Might save enough to move up a notch?

     

    Good luck, and share what you end up with, please,

    say, John, while you're at it.. doing your " outdoor spending " ....keep in mind a small patch of ground big enough for a refridgerator box with a nice patch of garden around it, a gravel path to the 'entrance' and some solar powered " night lights " on the path...

    so I have some place to live someday.

     

     

    YIPEE...ITS BEER THIRTY !

    Hi John, I've had a Canon 5D Mark II for a few years now.... highly recommend that with your budget you pick up one of those two Canon Rebels.
