Aspiring beginner lost! (:
I am starting to study cinematography by myself and just bought the GH3 Panasonic body.
I am a total technical beginner and understand less than nothing about lenses and such..
I would really appreciate your advice about:
1. Best Budget (500$ for both) tight lens and a wide lens.
I tried browsing but the options are endless.. Specific models would be great help!
2. A budget (up to 200$) microphone for both interviews and short films (I understood you can hack a normal one to use also as a boom.. It is all Chinese to me o: )
3. On a different matter: recommendation of the books you found most useful in independent film studying would be much appreciated!
