Film Camera Set up for under $500 (maybe $600)
So I want to be a film maker when I get older and am taking video classes in my highschool. I usually spend my free time making videos that only my friends see. However I would like to start building a portfolio. Of course for that I would need a camera. I have saved up a lot of money for a car, and I have $600 extra.
The project I am working on right now is a documentary on StreetArt.
I would like to keep it under $500 but if it is worth it I would bump my budget. I am looking for a good camera, as well as equipment to use with it. Addons that help with handheld filming because I am going to be doing a lot of that as well as I mic. But I will probably just get a Rode Shotgun mic because it would work well for what I am working on. I have always just used the cameras from my school so I am not sure as to what to buy other than the camera. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
