The A7 I used for my travel rig is a soft, moire-filled mess. Looking for replacement ideas.
I've been developing a smaller, simpler travel rig for my projects. I often shoot footage of clubs, concerts, festivals, and things of that nature. I have little control of lighting in these. It is more of a live/broadcast style production. As a bonus, I was looking for something I could also use for street photography, often at the same events.
I chose to rent the A7 as my camera because of the great low-light, autofocusing capabilities, and clean HDMI out. However, after reviewing footage, I noticed a ton of moire and aliasing.
I'm now looking to replace the A7 with another camera in that price range of $500-1500.
Obviously, the A7S is ideal but I can't afford it. I have no preference of brand or lens ecosystem.
