I’d never boo and his at an editing setup. In fact, I’ve often suggested in the past that people who are planning to "go pro" start off with introductory software. It’s a great way to get most of the advanced functionality at an affordable price.
I had a JVC consumer MiniDVcamera once myself. I loved it until it died in the midle of a once-in-a-lifetime trip my wife made to perform in front of the leader of Cambodia, and now we can’t even pull footage off the half a tape it did film. I’ll sell the infernal thing to you for parts. 🙂 I’m a Sony/Canon man today, and I would even suggest that if (but most likely when) your camera dies, you get a Sony or a Canon. Even their consumer stuff is good, IMO.
I’ve never been to one of these workshops, but if it’s anything like the articles VM magazine has, it will likely be quite good. I’m sure that even as a hobbyist you’ll be able to pull something from the event.
If CFulton shows up, he’s the admin here and on staff at VM. He may have a better explanation, but you know, my advice is you can never learn too much, so go on and attend. It could be a blast.
