I have a background in journalism / + a little producing and I want to start making doccies this year.
On the technical side I am looking at investing in a Nikon P500, tripod, halo light and stand to start off with. I can always purchase a lapel mike as and when. I prefer to go the bridge cam route as shooting stills are a large part of what I do and it doesn't make sense for me to switch tools completely just yet.
Besides the Nikon P500; what else do you recommend? I have considered the PowerShot SX230HS and the Panasonic DMC-TZ-18/ZS8 but I'm not sure they would be of much use to me without an EVF
Thoughts, recommendations welcome
