Hi TKingPros – welcome to the world of video!  For your needs, I recommend the $999 Canon XF G20 (backordered at this price, but worth the wait to save yourself $150). This camera is great in low light, so supplemental lighting is a little less critical.  This is a digital camera with 32GB of built in memory, so you don't even have to buy a memory card right away.

 

With the rest of my budget, I would get some extra batteries, a solid fluid head tripod and the $10 Kindle book "How to Shoot Video that Doesn't Suck".

 

The next thing you'll need will be a decent microphone and headphones, an inexpensive boom (and someone to hold it :)) plus some cable to get the mic close to your talent – but the camera and tripod will get you started.

 

Hope this is helpful, and good luck!
