I'm sure your brains are fried from new gear overload. Thanks for the update.
Well, unless I'm missing something, these aren't "recorders" in the sense that an H5 or an H6 is a recorder. These are recording interfaces that require a computer or tablet to work. Or do they work as stand-alone recorders too?
Hi Guy, I agree with almost everything you've suggested. Your point about the cheap used camera is understood, but I think a Nikon camera is far down the list of entry level cameras I would suggest for a beginner. Very few people use Nikon for any type of professional video production. Again, your point about a cheap manual camera is well taken, but why not suggest a brand that he may actually encounter in a professional situation later in his career? Sony, Panasonic or Canon.
