Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting with a DSLR or DILC, part of Getting Started with Stop Motion Animation.
…If you're into photography, you might have outgrown your iPhone,…or have another camera lying around the office or house.…The good news is, is that most stop motion software…can work with the professional, or a pro-sumer camera just fine.…What you're going to want to do is a couple of things.…First off, check the manufacturer's website to see that…the camera is supported by the software package you choose.…Not all cameras will work with all devices,…but many do and it's a pretty straightforward process.…You're going to want to take the camera and get it on a tripod.…
