This is my first post on this site, I stumbled on it by accident when i was looking for video shooting tips. What i found endeared me to the web site and i use it for most of my learning in regards to film making. I find it very informative! Grovelling over with
Here are the facts; I'm involved in the music industry and with groups that have had modest success in the comcercial sector. I produce music myself, and was going to pay for a video to be made, it was relatively cheap £800-1000. However i need to make more than one video so hence me reading info from this site until ungodly hours in the morning!
I have realised that it would be more cost effective to do the video myself. I could even make a career out of it as I know at least two recording artists that have had top 20 hits. I know i'm deviating.
This is what I need to know, i have £2000 to spend, i have friends who will lend me lighting etc., what camera would give me the the best quality for my money. I'm currently considering the Cannon XL1s and the Sony VX2100. i would like to get as close to film like finish as possible on this budget.
I would appreciate any help with my decision. Ps sorry about the long message.
