    I'm just doing this thing for fun, and seeing if it can take me anywhere. Right now I just started filming for a bmx video, to learn the camera and how to edit.

    I got the money for my camera by running a commercial fishing business in Alaska. I would love to film a documentary on it next summer, and hopfully have that lead me into filming nature docs.

    Used some equity from my house. Guess I'll never pay it off. Unless I sell my home.

    I first bought a Canon Optura 20 and taught my self how to shoot and edit. I then shot several instructional DVDs and started marketing them. As I began to make a decent income from video sales I started putting back money for a camera upgrade. I just relesed my first title shot with the DVX100b.

    Same way I buy a lot of things I don't absolutely need... 0% APR balance transfer cards, then just pay off accordingly. It is a lot of cash to drop all at once on a hobby.

    I am Jumping in here pretty late, but I always wondered how people afforded their DVX.
    For me I decided to start saving money my junior year of high school and then a little less then 2 years later I bought decent computer and my DVX.
