Videomaker – Learn video production and editing, camera reviews › Forums › General › Open Forum › Your thoughts plz: big camera/big equipment or small camera/ small equipment › Hi Luke, In the days when
In the days when I was teaching photography on a more frequent basis, I would see the absolute worst students come in with their Nikons and Blads and proceed to produce crap – I could outshoot them with a Brownie.
The same goes for video (IMHO) – I have done pretty good with a consumer camera (Sony SR11) as my main workhorse for years. Did it limit me? Certainly as I was forced to spend more time in Post to get usable footage. But it can be done acceptably, depending on the project.
It is your technology that should limit you – More than fine to start off with good but affordable and easier to learn equipment and master that before moving up.
