Anyone heard anything about this camera or plan on getting it? What about this one, for that matter: http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Blue-LEGO … im_dbs_t_3

Re: Digital Blue LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera

Whoa, this looks definitely a lot cooler than the other LEGO camera they have out.  I'd definitely want to see some specs on that video camera.

Re: Digital Blue LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera

I don't think it would be great camera quality though. mini/confused

Re: Digital Blue LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera

Could you give us a little more information, please, Capedkid? How do they work? Is the software decent? And how did your school manage to get them before they were released publicly?

Re: Digital Blue LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera

No our school Is private And we are linked with Digital Blue; Our school is like specializes in Animation So yeah.
Anyway the only reason I'm saying it is bad is; The software is terrible. But the camera is awesome.

Re: Digital Blue LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera

From your experience with the camera, would it be possible to use the camera with different software?

Re: Digital Blue LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera

I know that eanimation used to use it, and I forget if he still uses it, but he says that it's really not a good camera, and that you can't control any settings and put them on manual.

Re: Digital Blue LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera

I don't understand how anyone (apart from Capedkid's school) can have this camera already when Amazon.com lists it as, "This item will be released on October 21, 2009."

Re: Digital Blue LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera

Oh, um, just a side note, in the youtube jerk thread in the coffee shop, there's a link to someone who stole your video with the biking minifig.

Re: Digital Blue LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera

They didnt steal it.

Re: Digital Blue LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera

That's what private messages are for, BGanimations.

Anyway, this has piqued my interest as well as to the performance of this camera. You say the camera itself is good, capedkid... how good?

Still, I very much doubt it will be able to stand up to a proper camera from canon or panasonic, or even a decent Logitech webcam.

Stop worrying and get filming!

Re: Digital Blue LEGO Stop Animation Video Camera

I'm guessing it was specially made for brickfilms, so it might pretty good! Try to google a review of this camera.
