On that video he used a cheap second-hand Sony with a 55mm lens for the general video. I would say that the camera you shot with was excellent and you wouldn't want any more.

What he has taught me is movement and short frames. Then some careful editing.

Hope that helps in some small way. :)
Editing is the hard part. I find it really difficult to cut content out. But it is so much better like you say to have short frames. Taken so much footage on our old gopro and usually never get around to editing it.

I would imagine you can pick up an gopro3 quite cheap now second hand. They tske amazing footage and with third party attachments would be quite cost effective.

Agreed, editing and cutting out footage is so hard. Sadly, when I watch a good film these days, I find myself counting how many seconds each clip is, some of them are only 20seconds before the scene changes but it doesn't look like its flicking from one thing to another. I suppose its all in the editing and direction.

Another thing thats hard is adding music and actual video length.
