Best Quality Camera with in-body-stabilization for Doc

Hi all,

I'm just at the start of a documentary project and looking for a camera. I'll be shooting on-location, run and gun, in harsh climates and I'm really attracted by what I've been seeing in terms of what in-body-stabilization would let me do in the field. The cameras I've seen with ibs, however, seem to be on the lower end or finicky photo/video hybrids. I love how ibs would free me up (no tripod, gimbal, full movement, small rig) but want to get the best image I can. Anyone have experience with/recommendations for something that balances the form-factor/ibs with close to cinema quality? Is it just Sony or Panasonic? Thanks!

I would say the GH5 is your best bet. The only thing is the low light so you might want to go with Sony. I guess it depends if you're just renting or planning to buy.

If you're buying, then I would say the GH5. I am very bias in this but it's been my favorite hybrid camera I've owned so far.

Side not, if you're not looking for a MILC hybrid camera, I would recommend the C100 for doc shooting. It's a beast of a camera and you can get the mark 1 for $2000 I think. It doesn't shoot 4k but it will have everything you need for an effective run and gun.
The C series cameras are my favorite despite Canon not doing so well with their video capabilities in their MILC and DSLR cameras.
