I am a surf photographer, but would LOVE to become a videographer.
The thing is, I know next to nothing about the technical and equipment side of digital video. Ive been reading up a whole lot, so know about interlaced and progressive video, 24 vs 30 fps, etc, and I also know that good digital videocameras are expensive
The 5D MkII would probably be the best option for me, considering it would also boost the quality of my band photography enormously, but the price tag is way out of my shelf-stacking league. Ive got a 500mm f/4.5 I would like to be able to stick onto the camera, but since most (all affordable??) cameras have large crop factors it would almost become useless.
What I'm looking for is a nice summary page, kinda like the EOS flash bible if possible. Don't know if something like that exists, but any help in any direction would be much appreciated.
