I recently saw that the Canon t1i is selling used on the eBay market for only $150 now. Cheaper than some higher end memory cards.
Is there a less expensive learning tool for cinematography at this point? A digital video capture device that allows you to control ISO/shutter/white balance/frame rate/lenses?
If you know of one, please point me in the direction of that so I can show others, because to this day I still recommend the Rebel line as a starting camera for shooters with no money.
