Soon enough I will be getting a new camera, mainly for video (keeping my D850 for stills), as my GH5 was just stolen. The GH5 being relatively new (and now gone), I have previously shot with a GH4 for 3 years and although I liked it a lot, I want to move away from the sensor size and into a APS or full frame (mainly for low light reasons) mainly for low light reasons.
I live in Colorado and do a lot of outdoor nature shooting, and some paid work as well in the fly fishing and mountain bike industry.
With that said I would prefer a system that is small and compact (long days and miles upon miles of hiking sometimes), has log, and something that is relatively decent with stills. I want a camera that I am going to get the most features out of, and with that I want to limit the amount of additional gear I’ll have to carry. Certainly 10 bit is a plus as I have seen a significant advantage to having it, especially with pans and other fast moving subjects.
I’ve narrowed it down to the following cameras:
GH5 again (although I want to move away from this – but in terms of features probably has the best options)
Fuji XT3 (seems to have the most appealing features short of in body image stabilization
Sony A6500 (probably the most compact)
If anyone has any other recommendations/opinions, I’d certainly like to hear it. I should mention as a Nikon shooter I tried the Z7 and sent it back. I had major issues with focusing (both auto and manual), not to mention for the price it seemed to lack features cheaper cameras have.
