You know, I was so bad for The Lego Company to give us this stupid Logitech Cam when they used a good one for their own movies. The quality is bad, and the voice recording too.

They would probably not sell too many if they used the lego cam.

Don’t insult the cam. afterall, it is the cam which youngters use as a stepping stone. It not only introduces them to the wonderful world of animation but it allows them to be more precise. the studs allow them to place it anywhere. 8)

Yeah and then get upset when the older members of the forum say the movies film quality sucked.

Sorry, I really see no reason whatsoever to get this cam.

(I DID NOT buy the Lego cam for Brickfilming, I bought the Lego Mindstorms Vision Command Set for my Lego Robots, THEN started filming with it. It wasn’t but 3 months later that I started saving for my Logitech 4000).

I was never happy with the resolution and all, and I got the 4000 for just about 20 dollars more then my Vision Command set.

But then, on the topic of voice recording: Voice recording on the Logitech 4000 sucks too, nothing changes with that.

but How can you guys rig up your camera without studs? How do you keep it steady? tape it down?
I know the quality is dissapointing and all that, but you must look at this from the POV of people who have never seen a LEGO movie before. My Dad says “Why don’t you show our guest some of your LEGO movies” then the guest say “Movies with LEGO?”. They don’t understand how you could make a movie with a bunch of bricks. Then once you show the movie they are so amazed at seeing a bunch of little LEGO people moving around and walking and talking and that it is all done with a tiny camera, that they don’t even notice stuff like picture quality. In fact some people (who I sopose are not as technicly minded) have even said “That’s pretty good quality for a camera that size”
so its all in the way you look at things….

good point Ferder! you deserve some brownie points for that. I’d say that a mic is best for voice recording. the ones that you put on your head.

That’s true ferder, but cough, cough, cough, lets watch Jays epi 3 trailer filmed with the lego cam, shall we?

Really, if you can afford it, you should get a better cam.

And if you can afford Lego Studios, you can afford the Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000.

If its a stand you need, go Here:

I like your cam stand Yolegoman, but I am having trouble seeing where the cams ends and the LEGO begins. Did you have to drill holes in the side of it or somthing or are they just the perfect size for lego?

LS was kinda a Christmas present. We usualy don’t buy gifts that expensive ($250 here in Canada) but I paid for part of it. Now it would seem kind of ungrate full for me to just say “humph! I don’t care it that thing just cost a heckofalot of money, Its not good enough for me! I wanna better cam!” espcially considering most people don’t even have a LEGO movie making set to begin with.

It does seem probable that in the near future we will be getting a digital cam. Do you think that it would be better then a minicam, or not, since it can’t fit into small spaces as well?

No, I think there are only slight impressions on the sides of the cam.

Yes, Ferder, the cam actually does have little holes in the sides that are the perfect size for those pieces. It is quite convenient.
