Very open-ended question, but title bar doesn't leave much room to elaborate. You would be very surprised how hard it is to find info on this; I would imagine it would be a common question. For videographers that upload motion graphics AND video clips (go ahead and throw in chromakey, alpha channel, stills, graphic art and any other media into this equation...). What is YOUR experience? Personal opinions welcome, and thanks in advance.
Im a novice filmmaker and I've been following websites like EOSHD, reading blogs like Philip Blooms and generally for the last 6-8 months researching camera gear while I have been saving up enough to buy my own gear and not just borrow friends. I am looking to spend about $1500 at first. I love video and intend to shoot more, but I also shoot a lot of stills as well and that is obviously where my problems start. I would be very happy to buy a G6 or a used GH3 for video as I know these will outclass almost anything at that price range for video. Add a bunch of old nikkor primes and id be set. But I know stills and the DOF id get with the mft mount is nothing like that of a APS-C or FF nikon or canon. THE SONY A7s is amazing and if i could afford one I'd get it in a heartbeat, it retails at 3300 NZD here in NZ so its ridiculously out of my price range. Im looking to go second hand as it'll mean i can buy more lenses and such. Ive been looking at used 7D and D7100 bodies as both sit between 700-800 used meaning i could easily pick up a 50mm 1.8 prime, a 17-50 sigma or tamron 2.8 and maybe a telephoto lens for stills. Any suggestions or help I don't know what else to read or look at but I know what I buy now will influence my decisions and I'm not sure what to invest in. Also side note; if I purchase a 7D i will be shooting near exclusively with ML.
I've been using PP7 to take stills with, but when I bring the ARW file into Image Data Converter the Picture Profile is lost if I change any of the RAW settings. I'm wondering if anyone else is having this problem? Is there a setting I'm missing to keep/change the Picture Profile? I always make sure to keep the Creative Style set to Camera, but that won't keep the Picture Profile if I change any other settings.
