Lenses / How to clean lenses ?
« on: August 22, 2013, 03:17:47 PM »
When I bought my 600D/T3i camera with 18-55mm lens, the seller used alcohol wipe and glasses microfiber cleaning cloth to clean both the LCD screen and camera lens. Is that safe ? Or should he have used something else ? Also, I didn't clean my lenses ever since I bought my camera, how often should I clean it and with what ?

I have an 18-55mm lens and am getting 50mm 1.8 lens. I am planing on buying filters but I don't know which filter size should I get. How do I know which filter size will fit my lenses ?

« on: August 14, 2013, 03:06:09 AM »
Hey everyone. This is my second thread in this amazing forum. I am a newbie to the world of films and I just bought me a Canon 600D/T3i camera which came with 18-55mm lens which are pretty blind for filming. I asked people around here and they suggested to buy Tiffen 77mm Variable ND-Filter http://www.amazon.com/Tiffen-77VND-VARIABLE-FILTER-Camera/dp/B004Z55VP0/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1376463889&sr=1-1&keywords=Tiffen+77mm+Variable+ND-Filter is this it ?

Plus, what lenses do you guys recommend me to buy. My budget for the lenses is 100-150 USD. I will also buy an external microphone.

EDIT: My budget is 350 USD.

Reviews / Which camera should I buy for a first timer
« on: August 10, 2013, 06:22:08 AM »
Hello everyone. This is my first post here. I am a 22 year old student at a college majoring in electronics and communications. Soon as am done with college am moving to a film school to learn about filmmaking. However, right now am educating myself with filmography and video shots by reading books. The only thing left for me is buying a camera. Which camera do you guys recommend me buy for a first timer ? Same thing with accessories. My budget is 1500

Regards,
Salah
