I know it's only fall, but this spring I plan arming myself with a solid rig to get me in the "wedding videographer" ring. I hope to have money (~$3000 for body alone) for a camera (I'm thinking dSLR) by January and give me time to learn/play.
I've started to price other worthwhile things out, like follow focus, steady cam, and it seems to get expensive quick.
I see some people on this forum have shut down the idea of dSLR for Wedding Shoots, but I've seen first hand how well it can turn out. Also, it looks as though the Canon 5D mkIII blows a lot of prosumer camcorders out of the water in low light (at least the ones that are near the same price point that I've seen)
So my question is this, If I have a rough budget of say $6000 for all additional equipment, lenses, steady's, focus assist, mics, etc, what setup would give me the best results?
