My question is, if you were starting out with a budget of around £5,000 and a few ideas to cover commercial, domestic and news events what would be your ideal equipment package?
I’m liking the look of the Sony HVRHD1000U (two of them) and possibly a smaller unit as a backup (don’t mind if it gets wet or falls in the mud) third camera.
Is £5,000 realistic to purchase a two camera setup with basic lighting, editing equipment and software? I have some documentary ideas and would like to compile some pilot footage that could be used for TV.
I know it’s not a budget to drool over but what would you do with it?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
