    4 years of working in a university video lab...

    But I bought lighting and grip gear first, NOT a video camera. I did things differently, I bought the "investment" gear first, then when I was ready to find a camera, technology had advanced quite a ways, and before you know it, I had a DVX Andromeda system in my hands.

    Oh, and just in case your wondering, I always just shot with other peoples cameras when I only owned lighting and grip gear, cause no one else had any, just a bunch of HVX and DVX owners and no lights in sight
    That was a great idea....wish i had thought of that.


    Credit card...still paying........but i do love the camera.

    My dad owns DVX100b, and for two "highschool football seasons" I borrowed his camera and shot the football games for coaches...I used the money I got from those games to buy my DVX100b....I still shoot the games when in season. It is pretty good pay. I get paid $150.00 per game, its bout 3 hours of work...and as soon as the game is over, I hand over the tape, and I get a check in return.

    I Have a great fiancee that wanted to help me follow my dreams which included quitting my stressful national network job and working for myself.

    Oh also she is a Physicist so together we are not really hurting that much for cash at the moment

    Good luck with everything Dory....I've been through the scammed situation and its a pain....You're lucky you got you're money back, and at this point if you don't get a legit DVX I'll probably be more upset then you haha...If that's possible....

    Good stories people...Really like all the input!

    After being in the army for about 8 months I decided I wanted to make films in the future because of all the funny stories and interesting people I had met during my stay there, and I then starting searching for a good camera. I remember reading about the dvx and it's "cinema look" on the only working computer which I could access for about an hour a week outside the army base. And though I knew very little about progressive redcording and all that(never owned a camera before), I decided right then I was going to get that camera.
    So after my 12 months of service in the army I went home and started working right away behind a counter in a training equipment store and started saving up money. I worked there for about a year and a half and used every penny on video equipment
    Kind of fun to think about now, since I have never produced anything that has to do with the army or the people I met.

    Roadkill - great story. We've all been there. I put together a short film on rented equipment...and the total budget was $2000. My friends still laughed thinking the money was "wasted".

    If you're an indie filmmaker you get it...if you aren't, you never will.
