Camera + Accessories Supplier
We've got the go ahead to do some exciting video in school, so I'm on the hunt for some bits. But I don't know where to get them from?
Does anyone know a good place to buy:
- A good HD Camcorder, with a HDD
- A "Dead Cat" Microphone to plug into it
- A Tripod
- A Tripod Dolly

Why do you want to record dead cats? Surely live ones make more noise?

tripod and dolly, a good compromise is something like the konig one from seme nedisNo Access No Access
I would try to get a mic something like a rode, and the sony HXR-NX70E camera is excellent, light and dead esy to use! I'm not sure of any particular good places to buy those from, google is probably your friend.

More seriously, @Domino and I stumbled across this for you... Canon XF300 Camcorder Package 4
That has everything you should need to get going.

Lots of people seem to be going for a DSLR for video - I've seen several pros using them recently for filming work in nightclubs and so forth. The standard seems to be to use a "normal" prime lens - a fixed-length lens with a field-of-view similar to that of normal human vision. This, seemingly, is 50mm for a 35mm film camera, although with modern three-quaters sensor-size DSLRs you might want a 35mm lens.
