$500 Budget Camera and Lens Kit for Video

Photogearnews challenged Warren to see just what he could do with a budget video kit that cost us just over $500. What they found may have been the best budget kit for video.

The entire kit was based around a used Sony A6000, which if you have some patience you can find, as they did for around $250 (and £250). Then they threw in some brand new budget lenses. There is even more of a bargain to be had if you can find these lenses secondhand.

Find out how Warren got as he talks of his experiences and gives advice on how you can build a similar setup of your own.


  1. Sony A6000
  2. Meike 28mm f/2.8
  3. Meike 50mm f/2
  4. Opteka 85mm f/1.8
  5. Nikon-NEX adapter

Total cost was around $540 USD
