Hi there! My company is looking to set up a video studio. Nothing crazy but to use a storage room to film incoming executives for training videos-talking heads mainly. What type of equipment would we need? Around how much would it cost? And does anyone have recommendations for products? I loved to know EVERYTHING we might need--from makeup brushes to lighting. Also, we would like it if we could take the camera and lighting out to conventions.
I am a college student who will be graduating in a year. And I want to jump into the indie film world. So of course I will be needing a new camera, and was wondering if the fine people here in the community could help me.
I want a camera that has all the manual features.
Probably a $2,000 limit. The camera has to give me good, clean quality image that I can use for film festival work.
Hello everyone. As stated in the title, I am a complete beginner to all of this, so I would really appreciate any and all advice. I'm planning a documentary-style production as part of a little project I'm working on, but I need some serious help deciding what exactly I need. I've been looking at some camcorders and researching as best I possibly can, and I already have a decent PC that I hope will be able to handle the editing side, so let me run those by you first.

Today, Panasonic announced the new LUMIX DMC-FP8 digital camera as part of its new FP-Series, which pursues excellence in both design and function. The LUMIX FP8, with 12.1 megapixels, features a high-quality 28mm wide-angle, 4.6x Leica DC lens with folding optics* - encased in a futuristic-looking stylish body.
Can someone help me answer a question? I own the Sony FX7; and the instruction manual says that the camera should not be pointed directly at the sun, and that doing so can result in damage to the unit. But lots of videos have shots of the sun in them. In fact, videomaker's Tips and Tricks has an instructional video on shooting the sun. Is there really a risk of damaging my camera? If so, what needs to be done to prevent the damage? Thanks!
I'm looking to buy a camera, and I can't decide from consumer and pro. The Canon hV30 looks good, but I'd prefer the sony Hvr-hd1000u. Does anyone know a place where I could buy a used pro cam? I'm opened to any suggestions.
Thanks in advance,

I have a JVC Everio GZ-MG555, and need a good mic that I can mount on my camera. I'll be talking into it, but I will also be shooting skateboarding videos very often. I know VERY little about this stuff. So what you recommend?
