The camera we used then was from my other Emmy award winning buddy... But we don't have access to that panasonic P2 HD camera. So we are looking for a camera on craisslist, but I am hesitant to spend over 2,000 bucks on a camera, if I plan to buy a $6,000 Scarlet (the current low end model). If I could buy a camera that I could turn around and sell for about the same price, I might. But haven't found one that does 1080p 24 yet. The DSLR route can be too pricy, because of all the little things I need to buy. Sound will also be important, as is light. We (my cinematographer) and I really want to get exposure to Red, so we are also view this Kid Zombie flick as a tutorial - learning experience.
