    I get it that rolling shutter is quite common. I'm not keen on using the T3i because it will take a lot of time and effort to make this film and if I can't show it in a regular cinema to a select...

    Some reviews claim that it has rolling shutter troubles.
  3. Should I go from T3i to Sony FDR AX 100 or Sony AX33 to make a short film?

    I'm planning a short film and need some advice on choosing a camera. There's no budget to hire someone, so I will be handling the camera myself. I have experience with a T3i, which I own.

    I'm planning a shoot in a room that will probably have some background noise. There is a window and occasionally there are birds chirping and the odd car honking. What is the best way to eliminate...

    Yes. I'm surely going to do that!



    That sounds very interesting. Maybe someday I will, after I have better control.

    Thanks!

    I understand what you mean. My team will be three people including the talent. I could invest in a video camera and use it instead of the T3i but managing three cameras at once with just one person...
