Considering selling my A7S ii for a C300 Mk 1...
So, I own an A7S II kit, cage, shoulder rig, the whole thing. It's a very capable camera, but I find myself frustrated often when I use it, either being that the codec is a little weak, the sensor has too much rolling shutter, the lack of SDI, or just the poor weight and ergonomics.
Most of all, I get frustrated when directors/productions want to be cheap and assume I'll just bring it with me, and that they don't have to rent anything else. It's a fine B-Cam, but I'd rather resort to something thats functionally better to use while still having a great image.
I could pick up a PL-Mount C300 for the under what I could sell my A7s II kit for... is this a stupid move? I'm not one to care about 4K, I just want a good image that isn't a pain in the ass to manage.
