Calling Any and All Filmers.
« on: January 11, 2018, 04:37:44 PM »
For someone considering picking up filming, what's a decent starter camera to invest in? Also, what advice would you give if you have any? Any response would help.

Also we'll exclude phones, soooo yeah.

Whats your budget? what type of footage(hpx style or dslr or vx) do you like? How much gear are you willing to lug around?

Hypothetically, I'm willing to save up and drop around $500 to $900. I don't mind carrying around heavy shit all day.  I like VX, but that shit's hella expensive and high maitenence so, I'd rock anything from hpx to hd style stuff.

Your best bet is a mirrorless setup. You could probably get a panasonic gh2 used for about $300, a fisheye in the mid $200 range, and that leaves you with $400 for a long lens(or two), a mic and a cheap handle.

Sounds good. I'll be shopping around in the near future then.
