I spent 25 years working as a media specialist in the meetings and conventions industry here in the States, retiring as an area director (responsible for media activities in a group of convention centers). Events was our business, from weddings to corporate product roll-outs. With that in mind, narrowly focus upon what you can do now. Avoid jobs beyond your capability. However, let those jobs finance your gear. With a signed contract you can acquire what you need (but only what is necessary) that will significantly enhance the profit margin of the next job. Allow yourself to grow slowly. You can not grow without some risk. Try to keep that risk under control.

My advice: SONY. They have been heavy hitters in the video world for fifty years, and based upon the comments of the B&H Events OPTIC 15 roster of speakers, they appear to have acquired a lot of professional fans.

Good luck.

First question I would ask is what will be the longest time length of a single video clip? If it is over 25 minutes then look to the Panasonic G4 series cameras or look at dedicated video cameras (SONY, Panasonic, JVC, etc). There will be a lot of products at reasonable prices if you don't need quality exceeding 1080P. 2nd question is more of a statement. 80% of the quality of your video work will be good audio. Have you thoroughly researched how you will record the audio of your events? Build that into your budget.

That said, I agree with most comments. Pentax video specs are good for B-roll in some situations.
