This CAN be an expensive hobby (or more) Peter, but if you really, REALLY want to do some video with an eye on it being more than your own home brew … producing stuff that can (or WILL) be distributed over the channels … you CAN do so fairly economically.
Again, depending on your immediate goals and expectations, so far as “shooting” video goes, you can be doing that for well under $1K US, although specifically for network distribution might not yet be included in that range. I suspect it will be acquiring something in the editing department that is also able to work with the footage a new camera would produce in one of the many formats (a computer and/or editing program(s)) that will cost you a bit more.
Video is a GREAT tool for personal, creative and professional-level development. Obviously, if you’ve had a VHS or VHS-C camcorder and used it, you’re a bit interested if not hooked. Where there’s a will there’s a way, even financially, I suspect 😉
