Best camera low budget music and sports video making

I´m an amateur filmmaker and I do a lot of sport videos and music videos too and plan MAYBE to film wedding(BUT THIS IS FOR THE FUTURE). My budget is not big (around 1k) and I am deciding wich camera to buy. My question is:

.Gh4 or the a6300.

wich camera is best on a glidecam (I plan on using it mostly on a glidecam) and wich lens should I pair with it to get cool close shots. and last but not least, wich is the most important acessories for my needs (external mic, quick realese plate and stuff).

What kind of lenses do you already have ? I can't really answer your question unless I know that

If you want to shoot 4K video, then I would opt for the GH4 because it has less rolling-shutter distortion, because it doesn't over-heat when shooting 4K, because it is not limited to 30 minute takes ( shoot as long as your battery and memory card can last ),and because a single battery lasts 3+ hours.

If you only want to shoot 1080 HD video, then the A6300 over-heating problem is not much of an issue, and the A6300 rolling-shutter distortion is as good or better than the GH4 camera.

The GH4 still has the unlimited shooting time and 3+ hour battery life when shooting 1080p, so these still might sway you if either of these features is important to you.

Either the GH4 or another good one is the GX8 from Panasonic. The GX8 is cheaper (under $1000 has great reviews and still can shoot 4k.This also saves you some extra money to buy lenses which are going to be more important and add to your overall costs.
