huck-itYou could use a GoPro and a gimbal or some other camera with a gimbal. I use a hero 6 session and it works for me.
cg.99what kind of computer? iMovie isn't great but it works well for someone who is just starting.
pbsIf you're in high school or college and the school has a photography program, they most likely have all of the Adobe photo and video editing software. For a camera many things can be achieved through a smartphone, that's still what I film with, and quality isn't always the best, but this lack of quality makes you more creative with what shots you're getting. I love the footage that older cameras put out, but i havent pulled the trigger on one yet.
sauceboss420vx2000 that I saw pop up on craigslist. It's only 200 so I may try to get a cheap fisheye aswell, there is an opteka 0.4x fisheye that looks super mellow, at least until I get more serious and can save up and cop a mk2 or more likely an opteka titanium series .3x. Honestly if the deal is right the older dv cams are where its at, you don't get that with a gopro.
pbsbest of luck with the purchase, mini dv tapes are a hassle but def worth it
sauceboss420Yea thanks, Ive done the research and it still seems worth it, real quick as well, would it be worth it to get the heads cleaned professionally or j use rubbing alcohol and q-tips and get in there myself?
pbsI would do it myself, just watch some YouTube tutorials and ur good
