What camera do you use?
Since March of 2014 I have used the Nikon D3100, which has since been discontinued. I got it on sale because of it, so I think it was really worth it!
Before that I used my iPhone 4s and strapped it to a tripod on video mode.
What lens do you use?
Since July of 2014 I have used the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G, also know as the “nifty fifty”
I love it. It is so amazing.
My only issue with it is that, given that it is a 50mm fixed, I have to be pretty far away from the camera to get a full-body shot, so that limits where I can shoot. I am thinking about getting a 35mm to get rid of that issue.
Before I got that I generally used my 18-55mm kit lens.
