So, i am currently having acces to $8000, and need to put myslef together a good HD/DV camera/audio package to use for freelancing and my own production work. I shoot some nicely produced pieces AND some run and gun interviews and thing. My clients range from Music Videos and shorts to fashion industry interview to conventions to skate/snowboard videos. This is the package i have priced out right now, can i get some opinion.
All priced from B&H
HVX200a package (includes 2 long life batteries and Petrol bag)
Sachtler 0473 FSB-6 Aluminum Tripod System
Sennheiser Evolution G2 wireless microphone Basic kit
(comes with transmitter/reciever, lav mic, stick mic w/ xlr transmitter and small pelican case)
i chose the HVX for handheld capability and over and undercranking(HUGE FOR SKATE AND SNOWBOARD FOOTAGE) plus ease of dv deck which is still a standard for lots of clients
