    Most of us use digital cameras and then simply capture it onto our pc's.

    I'm sure they where mearly pointing out the need to phrase your questions correctly in order to elicit the correct response :)

    For my part, I use this camera, and I'm very happy with it's performance.

    I think you misunderstood the comment Sauja, it was more of a self putdown than sarcasm directed at anyone.
    Maybe re-read the comment and see if it makes more sense...

    Is it just me...? I mean, I'm trying to, I'm really trying, so I was wondering if it was just me or everyone here... But I really don't understand Fremen's jokes. ;)

    Anyway, I use the Sony TRV-DCR17.

    I use the Aaton a-minima super16mm to film my movies.

    But for my fan film I'll just use a Sony VX-2000. :)

    I've been using a digital still camera and making my actors move one frame at a time. Then I assemble the footage in my computer.

    Tumblemoster, that's how the guys at Two-ness do it. I think they're on to something.

    I currently have a Sony DCR-VX2000 which I'm extremely happy with. I also have a very old Bolex 16mm Camera from the 1930's.
