Nikon D5300, is it worth it?
My finger is hovering over the buy button for a Nikon D5300, so I wanted to get some feedback before I bite the bullet. This is my first DSLR for filmaking. I found a refurbished version for $570. I figure I can invest the savings in a slider and some second hand primes.
HD at 60fp. It seems fairly cheap, it hasn't got the moire problems of a Canon, and lenses are plentiful. The only issues I can see is no magic lantern (is it necessary?) , and I'm still a bit iffy about getting a refurbished product.
Does anyone have any experience or insight with the Nikon D5300? Is there something else that's better in this price range?
