t2i cheap lenses
Thanks for the valuable advice. I realize that all the accessories will cost a little more than 500. I already own an external microphone from Azden which I bought from B & H for around 90$. I checked out the reviews and the voice quality was as good as the Rhode Mic. The construction is solid metal and the length doesn't interfere with the view. I'm building the video arsenal slowly depending upon my finances.
I'm learning about still photography and about the camera. I will post some pictures soon. The Canon forum looks really helpful. So thanks for that.
I'll note down the recommendations regarding the lenses and the tripods. Actually I have a cheaper tilt and pan tripod which I bought for film school. Its not too fancy but does the job. The brand is Dynex.
