What Is the best filmmaker camera around 1000$?
Hey, guys. I'm post-production artist with big colorgrading experience and looking for new cinematography camera.
My decision now close to brand new Panasonic G85, with internal stabilization system, pretty fancy 4k video and dynamic range, not too small matrix size, but no rapid, no flat(log) footage, biggest framerate - 100mbps on 4k and nothing bigger for fullHD, so I'm stucked up on this. No information about output image with HDMI, so I dont even know what I can take with external recorder.
In this case already checked up Blackmagic pocket cinema camera, which is so good at recording formats, bitrate, flat image, but small matrix and all this things.
What should I choose, how do you think? For filmmaking and cinematography, really want to get as high dynamic range as possible and 8bit 4:2:2 internally if possible, if not - at least for external recorder. If magic happen - 10 bit through HDMI.
