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 know I'll learn best from practical experience, so 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 one can hack a normal mic to use also as a boom.. It is all Chinese to me at the moment o: )
3. On a different matter: recommendations of the books\materials you found most useful for independent film studying would be much appreciated!
