I'm after advice on gear I need for Digital Video, I used to use 8mm system many years ago with sucess. I now want to get back into video & will mainly be filming wildlife, which is my main interest.
I've decided on a Canon XL2 camcorder, but I'm having difficulty getting decent advice from shops (no specialist shops in my area), advice needed as follows:
1 - Computer system - I've read previous threads on computer systems, I'm OK with Motherboard/Processor/RAM (I always build my own systems), what additional cards etc do I need for digital production?
2 - Monitor - Is it best to go for 1x or 2x monitors? 13:9 or 4:3 format?
3 - Software - Looking at Adobe Premiere Pro 2, is there any other software I need?
4 - DV Tapes - Whats the best make etc to go for?
5 - Once I've got the PC sorted & Camcorder, what else would I need?
