This eager group of students has been working all year designing, writing scripts, creating, editing, and producing bilingual news broadcasts for our school. They have been highly engaged in scriptwriting, filming, editing, and producing videos. They have shared with me that they would like to expand their technology skills to include designing and creating animation, using still shots. This will entail them creating animation scenes using clay, drawings, cut-outs, etc. They will take still photo shots of scenes after each tiny movement changes. Using these shots, they will put together an animated video clip. In an effort to continue to expand our technology club skills, we would like to add animation. To do this, our club needs a good digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera that takes high-quality pictures for the frameworks. Why a DSLR camera you ask? Well, a DSLR camera is not a mirrorless, point and shoot camera. Inside is a mirror that reflects light coming from the lens up into an optical viewfinder. This is how you can see what you are shooting, right through the lens, and is where the term reflex comes from, referring to the mirror’s reflection. The advantage of this design is that you can see in real-time the exact scene you are going to capture. It also allows for full manual control, because automatic exposure settings may come up differently from shot to shot, affecting the quality and the continuity of the pictures.
