New To HD
on Oct 21, 2008 at 3:15:55 am

Hi,
I have had a still photography business for sometime now and have within the last year started producing some local commercials. I want to start working with HD. I have Intermediate FCP skills but have yet to attempt anything HD. The first question is simply what All will I need to start creating HD projects? And I mean this on a basic level, I'm not looking to go super advanced just yet. Second, can anyone suggest any resources, tutorials etc. that are good for the HD beginner?
Thanks,
CTK

First a quick question for you- are you asking this same question on every camera forum and hoping to get a wide variety of answers, or just here?

Well good- in that case I'd suggest a fair amount of reading. :) With the HVX200- right off the bat you'll of course want the camera a couple of 16GB or 32GB P2 cards, tripod, lights and some audio gear. For specifics on the latter stuff, determine your accessories budget first. Figure you'll spend around $10K on camera and cards to get started. Then you'll of course want an editing system- laptop vs. desktop, PC vs. Mac- figure another 2-5K there. Plus you might want broadcast monitors for editing., etc.

Here's one example of a not too shabby production package I found on craiglist:

HVX200 Panasonic camera
AJ-P2C016RG Panasonic P2 16 Gig Memory Card
Kensington 1gig Memory card for settings
CGA-D54 Panasonic Battery
Elipz 10K Anton Bauer Charger Sn 4059
Elipz 10K Anton Bauer Battery
Anton Bauer DC adapter
Anton Bauer AC - 10 ft power cable
XXX 82mm UV & Polarized Filter set and plastic cases
ME66 Sennheiser Mic and cartridge
K6 Powering module Sennheiser
Apple Fire wire cable 6 ft
Mac 1066/2448 Mack 4 year Warranty
AMRE2700 HPRC Case with foam insert
CS-B9 HPRC/Portabrace Padded insert
SM-GB HPRC/Portabrace Padded envelope
Audio Technica/ Nuetrik Mic cords 90 degree on one end for cam connect Neutric connectors
UL540L Ultralast Battery
Chrosziel Studio Mattebox
Chrosziel Single Sided Follow Focus
100mm Sachtler Tripod Head and Legs
MacBook Pro
Final Cut Studio 2

And then of course there's training, you can get my DVD if ya want:

Or there's plenty of folks in most big cities who can train you one on one.
