Looking for a GOOD camera that will help me start some Cinematography. I've been learning compositing and I want to explore the field of cinematography so anything that can record with atleast 30 - 60fps HD is good and I'm not trying to pay crazy prices for this so if you can find me a cheap one that would be great.

start with a t2i if you want something cheap and can control exposure. its a good starter for video.

T2i is far from cheap.... ya the body might be $400, but in order to have a functional video setup, you're gonna spend at least $1200. I'm already $4000 into my setup and i'm still not done...
but if you got some money to play with, heres a shopping list for ya (in order):
T2i
Tamron 17-50 2.8
Manfrotto 701 hdv head with 099 legs
Rode Videomic
Canon 50mm 1.8
Glidecam 2000 pro
Canon 70-200 f4L

consumer camcorders no. Sensors are too small and there isn't enough manual controls. DSLRs and prosumer cameras are what the good quality is. Panasonic AF100, Sony FS100, Canon C300 etc.

And lol @ buddy up there saying you needa spent 1200 for a decent setup w the t2i. First of all you should never record audio to the camera especially canons because of their AGC, even with the Rode Videomic you will still get hissing. Cop a t2i, a nifty fifty, and the manfrotto 561BHDV and you got yourself a solid setup for around 700 bucks. you dont need a fucking glidecam lmao you serious b?

LOL have you never heard of magic lantern? manual audio control... you must be outa the loop
And what's he supposed to do if he wants to get a moving shot? When someone says they wanna get into "cinematography," my thinking is that he wants to create some quality stuff, and somewhere down the line, he's gonna need a moving shot. in which case he needs a glidecam...
You think he should buy an external audio recorder instead of a glidecam? i dont think so
by the way why does everyone call everbody b? long time lurker, never understood it

I dont shoot canon bc canon dslrs suck ass for video. Only shoot panasonic. Moving shots you can get a slider for nearly half the price of a glidecam or a pico dolly for 10 times less than a glidecam.

A lot of my favorite videos on the web are filmed with Canon DSLR's.

But I am aware of how great the GH2 for video was.

Oh hey, new reply's! @boomskeiser Yeah I'm going to have to capture moving shots, but I won't need any audio peripherals if that's what you were suggesting and do you mind uploading any video or still images you took from the T2i? Thanks guys!
