Suggested Budgets: These are being updated to the new digital equipment in July of 1997. Stay tuned!

The page presents some budgets representing different levels of funding with increasing quality and functionality at each level. The new digital equipment is being suggested as the first option for cameras. This new digital standard will have increasing utility as desktop editing allows for direct digital input via the FireWire standard.

 This is a critical development in video technology, though one should note that we have not seen these units in person.
