For quite some time I've always wanted to try my hand at making stop-motion animated videos. I think this interest started when I was six, and saw a program on television about it which covered King Kong and various classic stop-motion animated Dinosaur films (whose names escape me). My interest peaked when Lego released their "Studios" line and in it was a set #1349-1: LEGO Studios Steven Spielberg MovieMaker Set. As a kid, I especially wanted this because it included a stop-motion animation camera and software to go along with a set which you could make films with. But my attempts to obtain the $180.00 set were futile, and today it's camera and software are outdated technology, unless of course you manage to get the updated CD software made especially for Windows XP. To this day, I still even search for unopened #1349 Lego sets on eBay, and either miss the auctions, pass on them because they go way too high (above the retail of $180.00), or only find auctions of incomplete #1349 sets. This pointless waiting has finally made me look for an alternative to the Lego Studios set..... So my question is fellow filmmakers of TFW2005, What is a good stop-motion animation camera?
