I am going to be a shooting my first full length feature film pretty soon. The production money has been raised by friends, myself and credit cards. Have spoke to an equipment studio and they have quoted the following rental prices for 40days of shoot
1. Arri/Thomson Viper: http://en.wikipedia....y#Thomson_Viper 70K USD
2. Sony CineAlta 24P HD: 60K USD. Star Wars has been shot on this guy.
3. Panasonic Varicam AJ HDC27FE: 60K USD.
The rental cost includes editing, tranfser to work print.
Which of these 3 would be the best choice for a feature film. Not sure about Viper, though it has been used on Indian films.
Also, is it possible to buy any of those (used/new). I cant find proper links for the 3rd one and the 1st one costs around 150K.
Any feedback is appreciated.
