Panasonic G7 as first 4K cam for a 4K Newbie on tight budget???
I got ZERO experience and exposure to 4K Video, Editing, Coloring and Work Flow though I am so very desperate to get into 4K video and like many I am also on a quite tight budget .
(((I reside in Pakistan so having access to a used GH4 is out of question and even the authorized Panasonic dealer will first take a down payment from me and then import a G7 in week time while charging big premium on price, I know it sucks but hey I love my country :) ))).
So my current situation makes the Panasonic G7 as a more preferable choice for getting into 4K video over GH4, yes there would be quite a few limitations with G7 but hey there is always hope for more functionality in future firmware updates or a Panasonic version of Magic Lantern or just maybe someone come up with the idea to run the GH4 OS on G7 :)
Also I feel that in less then a year GH5 would be coming so instead of waiting for that, for now I should opt for G7 and spend the year with it while preparing and educating myself to a level where I need to upgrade myself to more pro level cams (GH5 or better) or to get to know if this line of work is actually for me or not.
Guys kindly guide me and let me if I am opting for the right path or just going bonkers :)
