    Do you need 4K? Do you need slow motion (beyond 1080 60fps that is)? 

    No? If so, then get a Sony PMW-F3. Goes for next to nothing secondhand. I own one, will be shooting a feature film this year with it (hopefully with two at once if we can squeeze buying a 2nd F3 into the budget). 

    Get these lenses (all in Nikon F mount of course):
    Tokina 11-20mm f2.8
    Tokina 28-70mm f2.8
    Tokina 80-200mm f2.8 
    Nikon 50mm f1.8D
    (could swap out for the Sigma 18-35mm f.18 & Sigma 50-100mm f1.8 pair, but would cost quite a lot more, but either choice is reasonable)

    You might think you've got plenty left in your $8K budget... but with tripod/recorder/media/accessories/audio/lighting/etc... that will very quickly disappear! 

    If you do "need" 4K or slow motion, then get a secondhand Sony FS700 instead. 
     
    Third camera I'll mention to consider, is the BMD Micro Cinema Camera, is a wonderful little beast (like a BMPCC v2.0!).

    OK, Ebrahim, you're doing your part now. Thanks.
    Past is past. Only present can stand corrected and you're doing your role to finish and be complied with the refund. It must be, of course.
    This is NOT proper of a scammer, OK?
    Any insult to be posted here is mere abuse and derogatory of the poster behind. I've seen the poster Ebrahim to lie without mention his crime but I've never seen him to insult any one of you, his detractors included. As same as all of his posts I've read for years. There's only a poster from his account, now I firmly believe so.
    This polite attitude has earned my respect and admiration. The humble tone and above all, his most recent posts. Oh yes, I'd feel comfortable to invite him to have dinner at my home now. And I'll be glad to meet him personally if/when there will be a chance for.
    Let him fulfill his word to everyone. A wise community is the one balanced and fair. He deserves a second chance as all of us when we are wrong. Who didn't commit a mistake in life? There are different grades for sure. To accept the difference is also a proof of decency. I'd even dare to write: M-A-N-D-A-T-O-R-Y. Don't ask what you can't give back.

    What happened to the 28-70 2.8 ai-s  guys? I would also like some info about that lens, I might even buy it from you if you have photos of it, 700$ for an ultra rare prototype is a bargain.
    The three guys obviously are acting nice because they still have some hope they will see the money, but the eoshd sharia district attornies expext some hard evidence this is happening in , let's say, two weeks (open for alternative suggestions about the timeline).
    Peace be upon you, god is the greatest, brother.

    Hey Ebrahim, listen I have been a fan of your posts for the past couple years. They made me look at tech and craft in a new light. I never even knew there were supposedly two of you. I appreciate you are making attempts to right this wrong with the 3 people directly affected by your actions, but you must understand that your words had a lot of credibility on this site... so you cannot blame the forum for being interested and invested with these events. So, in a lot of ways we are all victims of this scam. There is an unwritten trust in these forums and unfortunately you have yet to answer the basic of questions. I think if you were to answer, HONESTLY, the following couple questions, it may clear up some things for some of the members...
    1. Does your grandfather exist in the capacity he was represented in this forum?
    2. Does you or your grandfather have the first hand knowledge with all of these cameras, or was it theoretical at best and in some instances just a lot copy and pasting?
    3. Do you truly admit to scamming these people, or are you just admitting to it, because you feel bullied and you are just telling the forum what it wants to hear to end the ridicule?
    4. If you did perform this scam, then why? Your last excuse does not add up, in fact, almost everything you have said since the beginning of this does not add up, so what is the REAL TRUTH?
    5. What gives you the right to believe that you can con hundreds of people into believing you are something that you are not and then steal money from members of this forum and other forums and then think that we should just drop it because all of the sudden you are claiming to do the right thing?
    Answer these questions and I will stop posting in this thread... honestly your stories are getting quite boring now anyway but I believe we deserve the right to know the truth.

    I feel like ES should be given a new tag or a message in his signature warning people that the content of his posts may contain fiction, with a link to this thread. A lot of less experienced people visit this site for advice, myself included, and anyone finding a thread here after some Googling would see a highly rated member and assume their opinion to be of value.

    I think there are valuable lessons that have been learnt in this thread and that it should not be deleted when the items have been refunded.
    ES deserves for his name to be immortalised as a scammer because it is very likely that he will find other ways to scam people in the future and hopefully the presence of this thread in the search engines may protect his potential victims in the future.

    I have monitored this every day read every post and I have left it all running while Andrew has been away filming,
    I think the forum handled it very well , we have all been lied to over a long period of time by the highest rated member on the forum ,
    A crime has been comitted with a web of lies and forum member are victims of this crime.
    ES has no loyalty to EOSHD or its members we are all pawns to his game , he didn't care who he scammed the money from.
    I would ban him with out hesitation.  everyone scammed MUST be refunded asap.
    An example must be shown we will not tolerate this on the forum we all love and contribute so much to.
    ES fate lies in Andrew's hands its his forum.

    You don't have to earn the money, just return it. You still have it, and if not, return what you bought wih it. We all know that your sisters abortion is a lie.
    You wanted to scam people, but you were soooooo stupid to use your actual name having photos all over the internet. I mean, its so retarded it doesn't even seem real.
    Return the money, you will have to find another way to be respected. You made the wrong bet, reading camera specs for two years instead of reading your textbooks. There are no tricks, scam artists, rappers, lottery, basketball, drug selling, it's all a lie, no shortcut for the poor.

    Aputure FineHD VS-2 is even cheaper, and is a greater than FHD monitor. 

    But a BMD VA is a solid choice too.

    if you can spend more than a SmallHD 502 would be ideal.
    You'll want way way more than just one lens??? What do you already have?
     
    Consider getting a cage as well:

    Consider the Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC instead, as the versatility in going from 15 to 30mm will be worth it, plus it is just as fast at f2.8

    You are right
    I didnt see it that way at the time.
    I just saw it as a way to intimidate a criminal and to make sure a pathological liar did something he promised to do.  I.E. I didn't trust him that he would refund the buyers.
    I honestly started it cause i thought one of the posters was going to beat him up
    But yea my anger at him for scamming got the best of me
    And this is it.
    Sorry eoshd.

    Nothing...except that devious facebook message. And the crime itself. But no, you're right, there's nothing at all to indicate that. Con artists/sociopaths commit their crimes for the thrill, not money. And compulsive liars, con artists, sociopaths, serial killers will say/do anything to remove suspicion from themselves. You know what one of the Hillside Stranglers did when his wife got suspicious of him? He pretended to have cancer. He didn't just say he had cancer, he would have his wife drop him off at the hospital, go in without her, wander around for 8 hours, steal medications and medical forms and forge documents. He did this for over a year. The guy the movie "I Love You Philip Morris" is based on successfully faked dying of AIDS to escape from prison. You guys can believe and trust Ebrahim, or whoever is posing as him if you want, but I don't.

    So, you don't understand that by sending messages agreeing to a deal and giving instructions on how to pay for that deal, then receiving the money for that deal but knowingly not upholding your end of the deal is fraud and theft... Both considered crimes by every society in the civilized world since tribes were trading in cashews? You don't understand that? Seriously?! Close your eyes and put your grandfather on. Now open them so we can speak to your logical side.

    Hey guys
    First of all, really sorry for what has happened here. I'm still catching up on things, as I am literally in the middle of nowhere shooting in Italy.
    I am going to investigate at my end and be of any assistance the best I can.
    RedUser, DVXUser, perhaps we can all get together and share evidence.
    I'll return with a more detailed reply later.
