Best camera for an amateur filmmaker? +Any tips?
I'm an amateur filmmaker in highschool trying to turn some of my screenplays into the real thing. I've been getting really serious about filming and all that jazz in the past few years, my family is asking me about cameras. I'm a little lost when it comes to this stuff, so are there any decently priced cameras (video cameras, but DSLRs are alright too) that you'd recommend I take a look at? A lot of people have been recommending the Rebel T5, something along those lines... Also, what are the basics I should know when hunting for a good camera? Any books or articles that'll explain all of it?
Also, what are the best free editing programs, and what laptop would be a decent one to run them on..?
