What camera under 3000 bucks?
Noob question about gear but please humour me? :)
I'm mostly a stills shooter but want to get into some video projects and step up my game.
First thing is I'd like to shoot better quality than 1080p compressed - so either 1080 RAW, or 4k.
I've looked at some budget options but it seems there is always a compromise. This is what I've been looking at. Please correct me if I'm wrong about any of these.
SONY A7S-2 -- FF - 4k , IBIS, 2500 EURO
SONY A7S (mk1) -- FF - 4k (only when external) 1200 EURO
Nikon D500 -- 4k (Heavy Crop) 2000 EURO
Lumix GH4 -- M43 4k, 1000 EURO
Lumix G7 -- M43 4K, 600 EURO with lens. No V-log? - important
SONY A6300 -- 1.5 Crop - 4K, 900 EURO. Rolling Shutter seems pretty bad ? :(
Canon 5d3 -- 1080 ML RAW. No 4k, 1650 EURO used.
The only cameras I'm kinda ruling out above are the D500 and the A7s2, both of which are quite pricey.
Thanks for any thoughts on this!
