Good place to buy a Decent, Cheap Camera for film?

by Charlotte

Would anybody know any good places online or in a general store to buy a decent, but cheap, Camera? I'm just starting out as a Film maker, and need to do some short films to include in my portfolio for Uni =) scripts and everything else is ready, have been doing some research, but any advise would help!

Try before you buy?

I would actually recommend trying different cameras before you buy. You can always find deals on Ebay, but I actually prefer the idea of purchasing support gear (like rigs, batteries, cards, etc.) and then renting the camera.

We recently found They're fabulous! Really fast shipping and friendly (AND FAST!) customer service.

If you have any questions, you can email me direct at!
