video production: software and camera

so...not sure if this is the place to discuss software and cams for production, but I thought I would give it a spin.

i'm trying to figure out what kind of editing software to buy for myself. i'm a media production major @ Florida State and we use Avid Media Composer for most everything we do, but I worked with Final Cut over the summer and found it more intuitive. What do ya'll think?

secondly, what are your thoughts on camera's. i know there's a huge range to choose from. a friend of mine has a nice Sony DCR-VX2100 but I would really like to find a cam closer to $1500 or less (I know that's asking a lot for a nice camera)

thanks!

We don't get into the technical much here. We're more of an idea collective.

And I know very little about video. I've done 2 projects less than a minute long that I've done in Premier Elements.

Josh,

Sorry I can't be of much help either. Personally, I use Premiere 2.0 and have never worked with Avid or FCP though I know people who swear by FCP. Not sure how they all compare, but I like Premiere.

I've got a consumer camcorder, though it is a 3 CCD model. It doesn't have much in the way of manual controls, but takes decent video. I've use the Canon GL2 a couple times and really like it, but we don't do enough video to purchase something that nice - yet.

Best bet would be to google and find some of the forums out there and see what they have to say. There are plenty of them - opinions as well.

You might also check with the forum at churchmedia.net and see what response you get there.

Good luck

If you have a Mac, You could get a copy of Final Cut Express and use that. If not, I'd start out with Premiere Elements 3.
