    Expensive camera prices are set in favor of the people needing an excuse to not use whatever camera they have and go create.

    I wish I watched this before shopping for my camera stuff, 😭. Very interesting to know that the more you spend the return of quality reduces. Great vid for us aspiring creators.

    I would LOVE to hear how and where you started getting your music from. This video is the reason I started to fiddle around with a simple Point and Shoot camera. I'm just having fun - but I'm looking for a way, to find 'better' music. I'm using epidemic sound, and they're great.
    But, I'm currently trying to make a tutorial on how to make a owl only using a pierce of wood, a chainsawsaw and a anglegrinder.. But the speaking parts is'nt really some 128 MP electro fun stuff. - Ya. I quess my question is - How do you find your music is my question?
    Thanks for changing lifes. Do what you can't!

    I got myself a t6s (coincidentally) because of the idea of diminishing return and getting a great picture quality at a great price. I'm glad to come back and see it's in the video as an example. I love it!

    I have a Canon 5D Mark III that I bought two years ago when I started going to Film and TV Directing school. A photographer with no video/film experience convinced me into buying it, and he said it was the best, while cheapest DSLR for video shooting. Thinking back, he was the store owner's friend, and took a nice cut of the money I paid for bringing me there as a client and actually selling me the camera. The store owner didn't really talk, this photographer guy was the one who did all the talking, showing me the "amazing" features of the 5D.
    It's a heavy ass camera that will make everybody turn around and look at you. It can record a maximum of 1080p with very lousy dynamic range. Even when I get the urge to go out and take some pictures, I change my mind because it's really cumbersome and I don't have anybody to come with me. I am scared of shooting photos or videos out in the streets because I can get mugged. Uneducated people in my country think cameras cost tens of thousands of dollars. I've had numerous people come to me while filming, asking if I work for some TV channel, how much the camera costs, what am I filming and so on and so forth. It's really problematic, and the overall quality of the videos is BAD! Photos are wonderful, but you can find smartphones nowadays that shoot way better videos than my Canon 5D Mark III. Gear matters, in many different ways. If you're creative and want to shoot something at all costs, you can do it with anything, even a smartphone. But if you want to make quality content, you need the right gear. This applies to audio too, so don't be scared to invest in a good handy recorder and a shotgun mic or some cheap lavaliers!!!
    I am going to sell my Canon 5D Mark III as soon as I can, to buy a Panasonic GH5!

    Casey my brother, this is all good, but it would have been better if you have explained how you actually make stories rather than any camera will do. With all due respect, we already know that. Hope you get to read this. Keep rocking bro.

    Casey's Guide to Filmmaking:
    -Any camera will do
    -Make a good story
    If anyone didn't know this already from common sense, they probably don't have the capacity to make a movie in the first place.

    Absolutely love how you cut this together, Casey. The whole mirror showing which camera you're using was a cool touch to telling their story as you're recording from them! Just getting into filmmaking & you have definitely inspired a different point of view that's more raw & authentic than most others! Thanks dude! - Brian (Erin too!)
