I’ve seen some great stuff using cheap cameras and also seen terrible things using expensive cameras. There is a whole lot more going into creating a scene that will resonate well with your audience – the actors, lighting, music, script, audio, etc. If just one of those components fail, then the entire project could be a disaster.
Not to sound negative – I would definately do a lot more homework and look around a bunch of various dv forums, watch what others have done, see what kind of equipment they are using and you will get an idea of what you will need. Not that I am any expert mind you – the best advice I have heard is to simply film. Go out and do it and you will eventually hone your craft.
