The T5 is a good all a round DSLR camera

I forgot to ask if you have a power adapter for the Canon and if not ebay sells them cheap. You will need one. Stop motion is a slow process, its not really possible to film on Batteries.

Camera Comes first Steppers and motion controls comes later, Don't rush in to things. Dragon frame has it all there so every one can work their way in to it as they grow.

Dragon frame has MOCO a motion control system using stepper motors. Dragon frame control up to 16 motors, so if you have the hardware it can be used to control focus, zoom, Aperture as well as a Camera Slide, Dolly, Stage, PAN, TILT, ROLL on a frame per frame bases as well you can use DMX to control Lights (512 ch). With home built hardware and a Arduino to control Steppers from DF, something I'm working on here at Stop Motion Magic and there is a few vids on YT about it as well. I 3D print my Follow Focus and Zoom arm for my Rig using a pancake Nema17 Stepper with Micro stepping. Its been a work in progress for more then a year or so.

Hello I use a Canon EOS Rebel T3 and its low on the list of live view cameras for Dragonframe , The Video is only 720p (I don't use it for video / I got it for Stopmotion) My Cameras top res is 4272x2848 RAW that is better then 4K (3840x 2160) and I don't film above that anyway. I do have a full mirror on the camera and they say it will make the camera vibrate as it moves and this can cause problems in stop motion rigs. You need good solid camera mounts and rigging to limit this. Other then that, this is all I needed. It costs 350$ new and if I wear it out I can buy 3 of them for the price of just one 60D.

I don't have a over heating issue with my camera but I do with my steppers on the camera rig.

18-55 stock lens I plan on adding a full frame Manuel macro lens, one that I can lock down the aperture and just use steppers to control focus, zoom and aperture from Dragon Frame. directly .
