Best filmmaking camera under 2000$?
Hello all, I'm about to buy a new camera for future film projects. Because the budget is quite good it's really hard to make a decision.
I'm considering Sony a6300/500 and Panasonic Gh5 (even if it's not out yet). The problem is both have their pros and cons. Sony is probably sharper and has less crop, and it's probably better for adapting canon lenses, but massive rolling shutter and really dark monitor are big issues. On the other hand Gh5 would have 10-bit 4:2:2 but more crop and worse AF and probably not much low light capabilities. My question is, if there's anything that can match advantages of both. Also is the rolling shutter on Sony unusably bad at let's say 50mm? OR just wait what Panasonic will offer
My overall requirements:
- 4K with a good codec
- as close to super35
- at least 13 stops DR
- decent lowlight (ok at ISO 3200)
- clean HDMI output
- Native or easly adaptable EF mount
