Questions about the Sony AX100 for a documentary
I have a tight budget & I found the Sony to be attractive since its basically all in one. At least good enough to shoot a trailer for crowdfunding... I hope which is why I'm asking for your help.
Its a trailer for a documentary. It will not be shot in ideal situations most of the time. It will be some run & gun. There will be interviews too (with my limited experience I'll be doing voice overs for that). Would this camera be good enough to make a trailer?
I would like something cinematic, how much can be done in post with the footage? Meaning, I've read that you can take 4K 8 bit 420, down-sample to 1080p 10 bit 422 and produce really nice looking footage. Is that true? I believe that the look of the film should be as good as the story told.
Thanks in advance for any help.
