This episode was packed full of guests and goodness where we discussed what to look for when buying your first Digital SLR Camera, good comics to get for a comic book newbie, and Apple’s latest announcements.

What to look for in your first DSLR?

Marc Weintraub and Lee Benoit start off the show with their takes on DSLRs. Marc started first with a series of questions to ask yourself before deciding to get a DSLR from a still picture point of view:

  • Are you upgrading?
  • Why are you upgrading?
  • What did you like about your old camera?
  • Are you just getting a camera that focuses/shoots faster than your P&S?
  • Do you plan on changing lenses (getting more lenses)?
  • Are you creative?
  • Do you like the shallow depth of field look?
  • Do you shoot a lot in low light?
  • Do you plan on getting “good” at this?
  • Will you shoot video?
  • Do you want to shoot good video/audio?

Lee followed up the discussion with the viewpoint of using the DSLR for shooting video. Lee also provided some good links for those looking to use your DSLR for video:
