Caution Need Advice on Camera and gears for documentary


Planning to make a TV show that will be shot outdoors where as a host I will show the audience different
popular places in cities in Canada and US. I will show around while speaking to the camera. The TV channel only requires HD in Pal format. Since I will be travelling around solo, which camera and other gears should I buy. How much money would be needed. The budget is bit tight. Is this even doable as solo person. Worst case, I can hire a cameraman for a day or two day wherever I travel.

As a canadian you should be familiar with Les Stroud and his show Survivorman. I'd look at his equipment list for the first season and pretty much mimic it.
