Hi guys, I'm Emanuele D'angelo, from Italy and I'm 17 years old. I joined this forum because I want to start a new project, but I really need some advice (best camera, mic etc etc...).

I'm also building a motorized camera slider with a wiper motor and a pic microcontroller.

I think I've nothing else to say i think I just hope that i can increase my knowledge and maybe that I can also help someone.

You did everything correctly, just dont need a "No Pay Job" prefix, but ill fix that for you. You normally only want to add stuff like that when you have a job to offer.

Thank you! So... I love make video of snowboard, skate, nature, spot, everything, but now I want to start a real short film! I don't have much money, I've about 1000-1500€ and i think that I basicly need to buy a camera, a microphone and maybe a new pc. I found a used notebook for 380€ (i5, 8gb ram, ati hd7670 2g, ssd 128GB), but maybe is better use the money for gear. For the camera I was looking for a gh2, but there also is the canon eos 650d that is cheaper and in low light condition is better, but the gh2 is smaller and sharper. I also have some full frame optics: zeiss 50mm f1.7, zeiss 135 f2.8, yashica 28mm f2.8, a 2x multiplier and a fisheye, but with wich camera I can use this optics in the better way? with the gh2 the 50mm,for example, will be a 100mm right? And finally I really don't know wich microphone is better. I know that my english is not perfect, but I hope tha can be at least understandable.
