The model number of the camera also needs the maker of the camera.
Samsung or Sony A7
Any Single lens Reflex camera will do; but one with an articulated LCD screen would be best for your application. You will also need a tripod that can be use vertically or horizontally.
And a light source.
I'm trying to buy a new camera. I need a camera for documentary work and shooting other photos and video. I've been thinking about the GH4. It shoots 4k natively, shoots 16mp photos, shoots 1080p96, has a lot of great native lenses as well as lenses that can be adapted to it, and only costs $1700. However, there are some drawbacks. It's a Micro 4/3 sensor which means that it has a 2.3x crop factor, shoots only ok at high iso, and doesn't give the same shallow depth of field as a full-frame camera unless using high speed lenses and speed boosters.
The 5D Mark III shoots incredible photos. You can't get much better when it comes to photography, but it lacks great continuous auto focus, doesn't shoot 4k, and costs $800 more.
The A7s doesn't take great photos. It shoots great video, but only in 1080p. The lens selection isn't as good as the other 2 cameras. It is incredibly clear at high iso, and because it's full frame gives a wonderfully powered bokeh. It's also $800 more than the GH4.
To me, the GH4 seems like the best compromise. It shoots great video, pretty good photos, has a great lens selection, and comes in at only $1700.
Is the GH4 the right decision? Are these full-frame cameras worth the money. I know the picture quality of the 5D is great. It's been used in great feature films and everyone seems to think it's great, but people have been saying that these other 2 cameras compete with it.
