1) What is your budget? How much money can you spend right away, and do you think you can get more money to invest in the future?
2) What experience do you already have with cameras? Have you ever even used one before? Have you helped your friend out with his camera? Have you owned your own?
I dont have my own camera but my mom lets me use her 35mm that takes amazing pictures
2) What gear, if any, do you currently have? (tripod, old camera lenses, mics, etc)
I have a tripod, 300mm telephoto lens thats about it.
4) What are you planning to shoot and how do you want to use your camera? Are you going to use this with the sole purpose of shooting skiing? or do you think you might try other stuff as well (movies, documentaries, short films, etc)
I will mostly shoot skiing but in the summer i would like to make short films of misc stuff, and vacations.
5) Do you want a camera that you can hand to your friends, that could or could not have film experience, and let them shoot you? or will you be doing all the filming?
None of my friends that i ski with have expierience shooting film. so i would mostly be the only one filming.
6) When filming skiing, how do you tend to shoot? (follow cams, leave it on record on a tripod and hike, film from a tripod, etc)
I like follow cams and i would also film from a tripod.
7) What computer do you currently have/use to edit (if not currently editing, what would you most likely use)? If you can provide specifics, such as hard drive space, RAM, processor size, that would be great.
I have a dell with windows vista.
7) What program do you currently edit on? How familiar are you with it (1- just learning; 10- I can make tutorials and know the keyboard layout) i am using sony vegas 7 right now... and i would rate myself about a 3. on it
