With a $5000 budget for your camera one other consideration is that you can not do an effective job of covering the event with less than 2 camera’s. My part time co just added weddings to our list but I have partnered with a a DP that has been working full time in video for over 10 years. We have 3 sony hdv tape based cameras available for our shoots.
Would we like to have an all digital workflow? Maybe but tape does offer a very cost effective back up. We are looking at adding the datavideo CF card recorders in the future.
One of the camera’s that we use is the Sony HDR-FX7 $1995 Not saying this is the camera for you but at the price it would allow you to purchase 2 and someaccessoriesfor your 5k.
