You (probably) have what you need
Hardware is a tricky topic to talk about because some consider it to be a barrier to entry, but it shouldn’t be seen that way because you probably already have what you need in order to do something. Starting out, I captured events using my Google Pixel phone. I bought a Mobile shotgun mic and a very cheap and not a good idea, Phone Stand from Kmart, eventually I replaced the phone stand with an DJI Osmo Mobile gimbal (you can get the Osmo Mobile 2 for $189AU which is $100 less than what I bought the original for) and we filmed the Dark Sided Hong Kong FGC movie on that setup.
These days my setup is quite expensive, I’ve invested my own money in building up hardware to do something I enjoy but the take away points from this are, you can probably make it work with what you have or very little investment ($80 to $300 depending on what you want to do). You just need to go and do it!
