Here's a list for you guys.
used T2i/T3i: 300-400$
used Kit Lens+Vintage 28+50mm: 50-150$ (depends on how all-out you go on lenses)
Rode Videomic/Tascam DR-40: ~150$ (Or get something cheap like the Shenggu 108: 30$)
Ravelli AVT pro 67" Video Tripod: 75-90$
Giottos QR plate (works with Ravelli tripods) 30$
Flycam Nano (works fine with this light of a setup) 175$
Cards: 20-50$ (entirely depends on memory and quality)
Extra Batteries: (buy cheapo 3rd party, they'll work fine) 10+$
Battery Grip: (again, 3rd party is fine) 30+$
After you have everything here, or even most of it, THEN tack on extra things, such as expensive zoom lenses, more batteries, shoulder mounts, heavier stabilizers, monitors, etc etc etc. This is about all anyone is ever going to need most of the time - more than, in fact.
Have a nice day, Bluename.
