Question by skyfuzz: Interested in shooting more, high quality short films?
I’ve been shooting with an old home video camera for awhile and I want to move up to something higher quality… What is a good video camera that can be used for pretty low-budget filming? Short films and the like…
Answer by fhotoace
Do you mean video shorts?
Short films are made using a motion picture film camera, not a video camera … while that is changing right now, there are no video to film cameras that cost less than about $ 17,000 … without a lens … most are rented by the production companies.

And a rental location:
You may be able to find a good uses Canon XL-1, broadcast quality video camera with lens for under $ 2000.
Here is a link to one in my area
