Help me decide which camera to get
Hi newbie to video shooting. I got a 7d from my dad (he bought a 5d IV) with a tamron 17-50 2.8
I want a camera for video 80% photo 20%
I have several options :
Keep it as it is and install magic lantern on it
Sell it and buy another camera instead
I was thinking about panasonic gx 80/85 because it is
Good iq ( good enough for me)
Has ibis ( must have feature for me)
Cons of keeping the canon : big heavy, and ML seems to be a pain in the ass to use. Also no autofocus and no IBIS for video which are 2 major features i am looki g for.
Pros of canon : gorgeous image / colors
Can the panasonic produce a nice bookeh like the canon does ?
If so which lenses should I get with it ?
Any other good camera video oriented that I should look into?
Dismissed the A6300 because no ibis more expensive overheating issues heavier lenses and comparable IQ to the panasonic.
Also dismissed the blackmagic pocket
I would install ML just to try it out but i I am afraid it would diminish the resale value of the canon ?
I am looking for a portable video capable camera.
Budget around 1k. With 1 all around lens.
Must have IBIS ,video autofocus and nice cinematic image my phone can't produce (bookeh)
I Will use it mainly for travel.
I am not in a hurry and i can wait if a good camera is to be released soon (gh5?)
Not against a camcorder either
Thanks for inputs
