i’ve been animating for about 3 years now and there has been one thing that ruins all my videos. There is a lot of flickering. I think the main problem might be to do with my camera (i use the camera on a DSI). I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about fairly cheap cameras (£100>) that had anti flicker?

You do not want anti flicker. The camera is probably not your problem. Your problem is probably either too much natural light, or your camera’s lighting settings are on auto. Those two things create a TON of light flicker, believe me, I had the same problem.
Close all the curtains before animating, and make sure your camera’s settings are all on manual.
This is a much cheaper alternative. :)
If you want to go EXTRA far, you could always wear dark clothing when animating, and make sure you are the only person in the room. This will reduce any other light-flicker you have. If you still have consistent problems, THEN I would consider getting a new camera.
Happy animating!

Make sure you lock the auto-focus, auto-exposure, and auto-white_balance. I use a DSLR and I used to not lock the auto white balance, and after figuring what white balance was on my Canon camera, I locked it. No more light flickering.
