G7 as a stand alone 4k shooter?

Recommended Posts

So my 6D is great for what it is. Im really craving some 4k and seriously thinking of betting the G7 as kinda a hold over until 5DIV is announced, and even at that point I can use this as a back up. As much as I love my 6D, it doesnt excite me to go out and film with it. The thought of using the G7 for strickly 4k video excites me. And the B&H price with $100 is pretty awesome right now.

TBH, its really kind of a motivational thing to film more, increase my editing skills all the while, figuring out the whole 4K thing. The price seems incredible. And the reviews say the IQ is same as its big brother

4K is overrated. Especially since you started taking videos last week I wouldn't jump into a new camera just for that. For example I found the stabilization that EM1 offered was far more important in creating nice looking videos since my style is handheld with manual lenses. Others might have a need for good AF during video, or ability for a shallow DoF or lowlight performance or large dynamic range or ....

All these things take time to find out and in the meantime 6D is a very capable camera that you can use to learn a lot. Shooting technique, framing, audio, editing etc can make a much much bigger difference than 4K.

New cameras are always going to come and get cheaper & cheaper so no need to rush for something that you want but might not need...

Anyways G7 is a great camera.

That's what I did, got the G7 plus a metabones adapter for a carryover till the 5d4.  The difference in video quality is astounding compared to a 5d3.  Only downside to the G7 I received is the level is off, so I've had to use a bubble level.  Can't be beat for the price though.

it doesnt have to be that setup. I could scrap the kits and get the 20mm 1.7 and something else

That panasonic pancake is such an AWESOME lens. Sells cheap used, especially the first version.
