I also like the XLR ports on the DVX-100 a lot better since they're right on the body, while you have to use another mount on the butt of the XL1 and then connect some wires into the rear of the body to be able to use XLR ports.

I personally prefer the Sony EX series...
I was trying to stay relevant to his budget. But yeah, I really like the EX for its lens as well, there's still much to be desired, but it's a great camera.
And it's indeed true. I don't think I TRULY understood the term "exposure" until I started shooting film. Getting a cheap fully manual 35mm SLR still camera is another great way to learn.

And I agree with Jonathan, get a 35mm still camera and a couple lenses for cheap off of Craigslist or something and you will learn a lot.

Hey, why not start out right and learn right. Go with a 16mm camera. Get a Beaulieu 16R or an Arri S. Film is only intimidating because you don't know anything about it yet. 16mm film is relatively cheap and the processing is far less than you might imagine plus the pictures you get are amazing. There is nothing wrong with the Canon, but even now, the technology is already obsolete. Film is the way to learn professional habits that will stay with you no matter what format you shoot on in the future.
hey thank you so much i really appreciate the help all of you guys really helped me out thank you so much!
