Lots of food for thought there gentlemen. Huge appreciation for setting me on the right path.
Thanks for taking the time to reply Michael. I've been trying to watch films and shows recently with a more analytical eye, and unfortunately, I love everything from static shots to steadicam. Will have to think more on that subject. Might just pick up a cheap shoulder rig to experiment with for the time being.
Mija, between those models, the most important difference IMO is sensor size. The larger sensor on the Canon would allow you to get shallow depth of field more easily so that would swing it for me.
Hi Kieran. Another Murphy!
I'm looking at buying some video kit too so I'm not quite qualified to advise you but I'll give you my 2 cents anyway. The Manfrotto Spectra stuff looks like excellent value for money as far as LED lighting goes.
I've tried both of the lenses you mention. Very different beasts. The 24-105 is a superb all rounder. I'm a fan of Samyang/Rokinon glass, though I know some people hate those lenses. Personally, I'd ditch the 18-55 kit lens, and the 70-300 ASAP and get a couple of solid primes but YMMV.
FWIW, If anyone was reading this thread, I've decided 4k can wait.
Instead I ordered a good tripod and fluid head, an ND filter and a 45mm lens with stabilisation.
Next purchase will be a viewfinder, maybe a shoulder rig, a pair of Sony MDR 7506 headphones, and then I'm gonna get out and practice, and learn to edit.
I completely underestimated the potential of the Nikon shooting 1080p, but having watched some Wilfred (wow!) from Guys comment in this thread, I'm certain that my D750 will not be the weak link in my productions for quite a while yet.
Hi Nino. Yes, I've ordered about 5 items from eglobal and never had any issues.
