Best Camera under 3k for 1080p 50fps, A7s or GH4 or a6300

Curious to know which camera would provide best sharp results with good dynamic range (11 stops)  and least artifacts for 1080p 50fps:

  1. A7s the first in aps-c mode with or without  metabones speedbooster
  2. A7s the first in aps-c mode & atomos assassin with or without metabones speedbooster
  3. Gh4 in vlog with atomos assassin with or without  metabones speedbooster
  4. a6300 with or without metabones speedbooster
  5. A7s ii
  6. Blackmagic micro cinema camera (When it ever arrives, maybe 2017)

Who has similar setups to above?

Andrew Reid would know...

Don't forget to factor in the price of a monitor though...

And a cage...

And...

And...

And...

:)

Camera - 1000$

Monitor - 200$

Cage - 200$

Batteries - 100$

Memory - 100$

Speedbooster - 650$

Camera total = 2250$ same as 2 A6300 bodies/GH4 with speedbooster/A7s 

No price advantage vs competitors just something different. Maybe it will be a good all round 1080p camera with great color, codec, ok low light, sharpness & slow mo its not a bad proposition.

If you had said 4K, it would be a more difficult proposition.

But for 1080p, and I am biased, I think the S II because it has almost no moire, is basically lossless in each shooting mode and frame rate, 1x, 1.5x, 2.2x,  24/30/60/120, respectively, and it's stabilized to boot. 

Say that about another hybrid. You can't.

Although, I already have all of those things, because the same goes for using a BMPCC or GH4 for that matter. I'm just missing that camera now. ;) When you can opt between global shutter 30p and rolling shutter 60p, there's nothing quite like it, atleast at the pricepoint especially. Then those thick juicy DNG RAW or ProRes files with excellent qualities and color. Great looking grain structure. Doesn't get much better than that, even if just at 1080p.
