Sony, Canon, Nikon or Panasonic?
Hello and Merry Christmas,
I bought a Sony A6000 about a month ago but I have some problems with that camera. First of all I can only use a mic from Sony with the hot shoe because there is no microphone input. The next thing is that it's hard to stabilize the camera while filming because it is so super small and lightweight. So I went to the store where I bought the camera and they said I can exchange it until saturday.
The camera costs about 700 euro and for the new one (If I should exchange it) I don't want to pay more than 1200 euro.
So after watching hundreds of videos and reading a lot of articles there are only a few options left, I would consider.
Canon 700D (I think its called T5i in America?)
Or the Panasonic GH3
I really can't decide, I read that the Canon has the same sensor for many years and the videos don't look as sharp as my A6000. In addition to that the Canon only films at a max of 30fps, so I couldn't use it for slowmos. The Nikon is very nice and also supports 60fps but I read that you can't change the aperture in live view with the D5300.
The GH3 is also nice but is 2 years old and has a smaller sensor.
So all in all I really can't decide, I had them all in my hand and like the feel of every one of it but I need some advice please.
Is there any other good camera that I should consider?
Or should I stay with the A6000 and save some money in the future for a black magic/gh4 /a7s?
I would really appreciate it, if someone could help me.
