Best camera for 4K shooting on a budget
Hey Guys! I film sports video, music videos and planning to shoot weddings. That means that I want all the quality I can get with a camera (4K), low light capabilities, high frame rates and that cool stuff oh and also good log footage for grading is post.
since my total budget is around 4000, I may choose a cheaper body+ gimbal+ more lenses or a more expensive body+ 100 cheap glidecam+ 2 lenses.
I would like to know what camera serves me the best:
.The old but gold GH4
. Wait for the a7siii with 4k60p capabilites ( the one I am most excited for)
.the new ursa mini 4k ( yes it is big, but it has awesome capabilities and devin graham uses a RED on a glidecam so the ursa mini wont be a problem in terms of wieght)
.The new super cheap but with major rolling shutter problems a6300
My opinion is between the a7siii or a6300 . the a7siii wich should have a nice cinematic look, is a good investment for the future, it will pay off when I get more money and use more expensive lenses, but for now I would have a low budget rig if I go with the A7siii on the other side the a6300 would allow me to have a way better rig with gimbal and more lenses but thats it, the camera will never get better, but the a7siii is a full frame that will make my investment pay off in the long term. that is my opinion and I would like to know if I am right!? The ursa mini 4K got me really interested because it is kinda like a RED right? modular and stuff, great image for grading but they say that it is horrible for run and gun or low light.
