Ideal Camera for ~$1600
All right, I may be out of line posting this here, but I just need answers from fellow filmmakers. I'm hoping to be attending a film school this coming fall, and this summer I'm hoping to shoot a short film which I'm currently in the writing process of.
It's a short film inspired by my favorite director; Nicolas Winding Refn. Primarily influenced by the look of 'Drive'. So, it's important that the camera handles nicely during night shoots.
What I need:
Best possible video quality (4k not necessary - out of my budget, I believe).
Needs to have an option for 720/60fps for slow motion shots.
Needs to be compatible with the coming Irix 15mm, which I have planned on purchasing, i.e. Nikon F- Canon EF- or Pentax K mount.
Also, if there are any better lens alternatives, feel free to share them as well. I'm interested in shooting with 15mm though.
Note: I have looked a lot at the Canon EOS 6D, but am hesitant.
Thanks in advance!
