I've said this before, but since the search function no longer includes usernames, I'll have to repeat/repost:
Nearly everyone would be better off shooting video on a dedicated video camera. The only people who are usually better off shooting video on a large sensor, interchangeable lens, hybrid photo/video camera are folks on a scripted narrative feature (who have the time to setup, block, light, do multiple takes, etc.) i.e. people who have the time to plan all of this out ahead of time and who also have the time to reshoot if something (e.g. focus) goes wrong during a take.
From focus, to sound, to exposure flicker, etc. there are myriad reasons to use a dedicated video camera unless you absolutely need a cinematic look -- i.e. 24p, shallow DoF -- and are on a budget of around $10k "all in". (By "all in", I mean camera(s), lenses, light rig, audio rig, glide cam/stedicam, edit bay, etc.)
And keep in mind that I've been shooting video on these types of cameras since the GH1 came out in 2009, so if anything, you'd expect me to be biased toward these types of cameras.
Hello everyone and thanks for reading this post.
Me and some friends want to start a YouTube channel.
Some people advised us to buy an DSLR camera.
Currently I am on the Internet searching and have made a top 3 for me:
-Nikon D3200 + 18-55mm VR
-Canon EOS 100D + 18-55mm DC III
-Sony Alpha SLT-A58 + 18-55mm II (volgensmij this is the best price / quality choice?)
I made this list because of the following options I want it to have:
- + / - 400 euros
-external mic jack
Could some 1 help me choose and tell me why its the best option to buy?
another, even better model is obviously also good!
