I am trying to spec out a video studio set-up in a few different price ranges ($1,000, $2,000 and $3,000) for something that would be capable of filming 2 people interviewing. I will have a backdrop and have two people sitting at a table interacting. I would like to get a set-up (cameras, mics, software that would allow me to mix the audio post). I would like to have 2 clip-on mics and two cameras. But want to find a few different options when it comes to syncing all the audio and video together.

Thought that this forum seemed the place to ask my question,

I'm a trainee Sports Journalist at University at the moment and for part of my TV Production moduleI've been asked to make a Newsworthy TV Package,

I was hoping to be able to record my local team Harrogate Town FC during a game but Idon'thave a camera so was just wondering what the best camera would be for recording the match and able to catch the goals that are scored in good quality.

I am willing to pay upto around 150 but may go upto 350 if pushed to my limit,

Here's a first look at the Canon C300 Cine Style CMOS Sensor Video Camera. Built upon all the best bits and more from their HDSLR line of cameras, the C300 looks to be an awesome rig for those interested in serious filmmaking. However, the price of the camera body and lenses put it right into the range of the RED ONE without the same powerful image resolution.

Hi there,

My name is Ben and I have been tasked by my boss to create a short informational video about our company. I have a background in video production, but it was a long time ago (about 10 years). The editing software hasn't changed much from when I was elbow deep in the media world, but cameras have changed a lot. I used to use DV tapes, but now there are a lot of digital and flash drive based cameras.
