Since before I joined TBBS, I have been following Maurice's Fan Film Writer's Primer and Fan Filmmaker's Primer. Both been extremely informative and fun reads and I am always watching for new posts in both. Reading them has led me to post this thread to get an idea of the type of equipment some of the resident fan productions use. I am interested in doing a fan production sometime in the near future and have began to look at my needs in regard to equipment. I know that some will probably be brought along by those I am able to recruit for the project, but I am interested in getting some of it myself. The first item on my list is the camera. I have researched quite a bit online but recommendations can get quite overwhelming as they are so varied. I have my eye on one on Ebay, a Canon Vixia HF G20 HD Camcorder. The features combined with the price is what drew my attention as I have three kids at home and want a decent camera that won't break the bank. What are others' thoughts on this camera? What are some other good cameras at a reasonable price that you would recommend? Most important, what do others use for their productions?
