Just a quick survey/poll of what our brickfilmers like to use for capturing their films. Post away!

I personally use a battered Canon 450d.

Follow up. Do you prefer as DSLR or point and shoot or a webcam?

Canon 60D and some nice glass ;) Macro lenses for close ups are important! Wide shots can be very boring after some time.

used 60d and now switched to full frame d600

DSLR can give you a nice depth of field and the bigger the sensor is – the more light sensetive it is

But I wouldn’t suggest you buying dslr only for stop motion

I’m going to start making brickfilms soon and I recently bought a Canon Powershot SX500 IS. Not quite as good as a DSLR, but it’s still a pretty good camera! :) http://www.canon.ca/inetCA/products?m=gp&pid=18451

Dslr is not a must and even handy cameras like yours. The thing is that it’s all about lighting and frame rates. You can get great pictures with web-cams.
Back in the days I remember taking pictures on my Nokia N95. It’s a phone with a 8 megapixel camera. When you are rendering your stop motion video – you crop the image to Full HD or HD resolution or even lower. 8 megapixel camera image is still above full HD resolution, so the amount of megapixels your camera has doesn’t really matter right now.
My camera has 24.2 megapixels and it gives me pictures with resolution about 6019/3200, but I still crop to 1920/1080

I use the canon rebel t3i. It works perfectly with my tripod. I have to set my tripod up in front and a bit of it under the desk
