HA! Need $16,000 for that shit. God that camera is sexy as fuck.
You can rent one for the weekend for about 2 grand ;)
I have a general idea about Canon and Nikon cameras
and stuff but im not sure what I should be getting. What kind of camera do i get if I mainly wanna catch footage, like high quality music videos and shit, and then photos every once in a while. My budget is around $200-700 with the lenses and everything.
T2i is definitely the way to go with that budget. Every time Canon brings out a new camera to the T series (t1i, t2i, t3i, etc.), they range around 1200-1500. Catching the t2i at $550 now is solid. You will never completely get away with shakiness in video til you put the money forward for glidecam and steadicam equipment. Since you are on a tight budget though - Be sure to read up on "Position" when editing in your given video software. You can also ghetto rig a steadicam for about $20, search for it on youtube. For your lens, the Canon 50mm 1:1.8 is definitely a good starter and should take care of most of what you need in the beginning (as well as portrait photos of your models).
