yes, I am a super 8 film maker, but since expenses are running up quite high, I am considering working with video (as well) (hire, buy, lend). I am posting this question here, since I want to continue filmmaking in the same spirit as I was with super 8 (everything manual, DOF calculating, manualy measuring exposure etc). Which video camera works the best for this? this is my question (under 2 or 3k range in price). Any books recommended on this subject?

Best regards

Paul

A used DVX would be in that price range and has manual controls. SD, but useful. For HD, there are a few Canon HDV cameras out and Sonys for around 3K all of which have manual control (though I forget the exact model numbers now. check Bhphoto.com)

What about a Digital SLR that can shoot video (Nikon, Canon)? I've seen some impressive video footage from these cameras. I haven't gone down this path yet but I do intend to give it a whirl soon.
