As the title says, I never had a good camera and I need one with couple of accessories as I want to start my youtube channel soon. I have to spend £307.44 in total and need the following items:


* Camera itself which is capable of recording at least in HD but I prefer Full HD.

* Camera stand so I can move it in any diection I wish to.

* Some Microphone so I will have clear voice in my videos.

* Some Green Screen material so I would be able to edit my video later on.


Any suggestions ? Please help me as I don't know anything about cameras.

That is not a huge budget for what you are looking for, I presume the £ 307.44 is a translation from €400.


I think your best starting point would be to look at one of the video or photography forums. If you Google 'Video forums'  you will find plenty to choose from.

Green screen material is cheap, you could just get a large wooden board and spray it uniformly green (or blue, depends what colours are going to be on your actors, choose a green screen if your actors will wear blue (or carry blue items) and a blue screen if your actors wear green or hold green items), as long as the colour is uniform it will work. Sheets of bright uniform colour can also be used. Another important thing for this is the lighting though, if it's too dull or the light is coloured or from the worng angle it may give you problems with greenscreening.

I'm afriad i can't advise so well on the other issues(i just use an old camera with truly pathetic video quality), but if you want to know more about how to do VFX (cvisual effects, stuff like computer graphics and greenscreen) i would be happy to advise you on how.
