1. don’t screw around with PC. Go Mac with Final Cut Pro!
2. Don’t skimp on ram or hard drive (or processors) – look at about 8k minimum for the edit system – PLUS DECKS
3. Buy at least the HVX 200 (Panasonic HD palmcorder) or Sony Z1 – anything SD bought today will be obsolete too fast. 1 good camera beats 2 mediocre cameras…but 2 good ones are always better (as are 3, or 4)
