Should a beginner get C300 Mark ii ?
I come from a graphic design background. I've been playing around with PremierePro and SpeedGrade CC. I have a 1 year old MacBook Pro. I've filmed on the iPhone 5 and a bit on a DSLR. I am a beginner, but I dive in and learn fast. I would like to learn to create professional quality documentaries. I have the opportunity and want to start with the RIGHT tools. My question is: Should a beginner get C300 Mark ii or go for something like Canon XC10 but get more lenses and accessories? I plan to apply to film school in the next year or two, but first I want to self-study, film a lot, experiment and learn online. I want the money well spent, and the camera future proof. But of course I also don't want to overdo it if a beginner is better off to start small and not aim as high. All advice and opinions are very welcome and much appreciated! - Ingrid
