    In my neck of the woods some elections are coming up. I am assembling "kits" for groups to use. Seeing as I would like to get the most bang for the buck, I thought I would ask here for some help/exp/advice.

    Just for some reference, here are some of the political videos I have done and am looking to teach others to do.

    So with those as examples and keeping in mind alot of these people will be nOObs, I want to keep it simple (and cheap)

    - camera
    - lav mic (wireless too much $$$)
    - shotgun mic (double AA power)
    - light or reflector?

    Seeing as there is no crazy color correcting or gfx, I was thinking a point and shoot. BUT I use DSLR's and haven't used a point and shoot in ages. I know the tech is decent and can produce some cool stuff.

    What is your interpretation of nOObs?. As we have a culture class of people world wide visiting this forum and the word has different meaning.
    Not certain what message you are trying to convey. Seen the three videos and they are well constructed and that is how far my interest is in political videos.
    I guess you want a group of people to go forth and video the elections?.
    Best way would be fly on the wall documentary style video???????;)
