Default Mics, cameras, recording equipment.

Hey guys, i'm new here and am hoping to get some good help from all of you nice people!

Anyway,
I'm looking into making drum covers and other videos but I want to make sure I have some pretty good equipment.
I need to get some mics, camera or cameras, and any other recording equipment I need.
All I want is some decent semi-cheap equipment. I don't have tons of money to spend so whatever you guys think would be best.

Thanks
-MDR

$1000-1500.
Like i said, not much.
But hopefully i can get something decent out of it.
I really don't know anything about these things.

If it could be less that would be preferred.

Some folks have asked me how I've been doing mine and I replied with this thread:

http://drummerworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=69369

What I was explaining was the audio part. Of course, once you do the audio right, the camera doesn't really matter, especially if you already have a computer, like a Mac running iMovie or something. But of course, if you already have the computer, you'd be spending about $1000 to do it the way I explain it.

If you don't know much about recording, I highly recommend this way and not start out by recording into the computer. It's too much of a hassle and then there's this learning curve you'll have to contend with as well as having a more powerful computer to do it.

Thanks man! This is great, i still have a question or two though.
Like I said, I know nothing about recording what so ever.
So you buy the Zoom R16. Then you need to buy all the mics and stuff aswell I assume, correct?
Do you have any good reccomendations for mics aswell?

Thanks again!

Yep, mics as well. Cheapest is just two overheads (something like Rode M3) then add bass for a bit more (AKG D112) and then snare (SM57). Other than that is extra.

I'm a generalist when it comes to the mics I own. Would you believe all my recording has been done with a mix of Shure SM57's and SM58's? I have one nice pencil condenser as my overhead - an AKG SE300B, and a cheaper Audio Technica 137 on my hi-hat. That's it. I'd love to have a set of microphones just for the drums, but then I'm stuck with mics I can't really use for anything else when I'm not playing drums. So over time I've collected a few of these Shure mics and the aforementioned condensers and that's it.

In the beginning I was getting a great drumset sound by putting an SM58 just inside the hole of my bass drum, and having the one AKG pencil condenser as my single overhead about two drum-stick lengths above the snare drum. If you check out the Earthworks microphones, they demonstrate micing the entire kit with three of their specialized microphones, very expensive, but it can be done.
