Hi, I've been an admirer of photography and video editing for quite some time but now I've decided it's time for me to start working on it. Problem is, I don't know where to start and with what stuff to work around. My school does a piss-poor job of technology and doesn't motivate me enough to WANT to continue with the curriculum at hand when I finish a certain task. That's where I hope this community can help me out. I'm a beginner video editor and beginner photo editor. I have the money to shell out, but I don't want to mindlessly spend it on stuff I won't be able to utilize (don't want it to overwhelm myself to the point where i just want to give up). Video Camera? I'd like one that is future proof but it's not a priority. I just would like a good beginner->can-be-pro-in-time camera (not intimidating but not undersupplied that i want to use this camera in the future). Basically, one that's easy to learn but also has potential to be bomb. Also, I want to get into photo. I was wondering what good cameras are out there that I can buy. Again, I'd like something easy to learn but the ability to take pro shots. I understand that lens are more important than the unit itself, so if you could tell me a bit on what lens I should purchase/etc. btw, if need be, move this thread accordingly.
