Question by dwntwnjim: What is a good camera for an aspiring filmmaker?
What is a good camera for someone starting out? I want to make my own movies and documentaries, but I don’t want it to look amateur.

Really depends on your budget.
for about $ 2500 you can get a Canon GL2, a very good mini dv camera.
Do not get any kind of VHS or VHS C, they are cheap yes but crappy quality. Mini DV or digital 8 is the way to go. go to video makers website they usually do a break down of cameras, from the good to the crappy.
