Camera Advice - Don't Cheap Out

Video description:

I often see two forms of advice in response to "what camera should I buy for video?" Some push buying expensive full-frame DSLRs with rigs, but more often the advice is to use what you already own (usually a phone) or get the cheapest thing that can possibly work. I think the latter is good advice, but I also think that it can be bad for the beginner to cheap out too hard on their first camera. In this video, I ramble about why it makes sense to buy something a little more expensive. See my video work and short films at
