First Camera/workflow help!
Hello, my name is Logan and I've been reading this site for a while but now Im here needing some insight on the world of cameras and such. So, after months of research I've decided that the samsung NX1 seems like the camera for me. Its well balanced and produces images that nothing under $2,000 seems to replicate. My issue is the deeper I dig into the world of codecs/compression/atomos/speedboosters/ color bit ect. I only get more frustrated and confused. I guess the ultimate question is, what exactly would be an ideal 4k Rig/Workflow set up for under $5,000? I already have a brand new computer with more than enough power to process and edit 4k but the gear/ equipment is making my head spin with all the jargon and oddly specific pieces of equipment (atomos external recorders /codec compressors ect.) Basically, outside of the camera and one decent piece of glass I don't know what I NEED to get for a functional set up. Any and all help is appreciated!
