wolf33d Posted January 8, 2017 Share Posted January 8, 2017 I am out in Patagonia soon for trekking. I am gonna have a DJI Mavic for aerials, Nikon body (D7200, D5500 or D810) for timelapses and stills, and I need a video body. I might take a Crane gimbal with me (2 weeks of trekking, the weight will kill me......) What is the best 120p camera: a7sII / RX100 V / A6500, or other? Criteria: 1 - good clean 120p 2 - good 4K (for this I know a7sII>a6k5>rx100) 3 - good AF in video (a6k5>rx100V>a7sII) 4 - decent bokeh ( a7sII>a6k5>rx100) Ideally I would have one camera for stills + video but the Nikon bodies are not up to the game. The A7R II does not have slowmo, and the A7SII is not good enough for zooming in timelapses. A6500 dynamic range is not good enough for my landscape work. Amazing that yet no FF camera with DR > 14 stops with slowmo and 4K exists. Probably A7RIII or A7III .... I have taught about a 1DXII but I see major problems: file size in 4K, while hiking no computer with me. Overall price. Fact that you get worst still IQ than a D5500 for ten times the price (FOR MY USE, see gallery = I dont care about ISO, I need DR). Otherwise, FF body, 4K60p, 120p, amazing AF.... great stuff. My photos to give you an idea : https://500px.com/loup_f My latest video to give you my style and why I want slowmo (you can notice I had A7RII + RX100 combo here. Did not like the A7RII much and its DR is similar to D5500 for 6 times the price): https://vimeo.com/165075366 Thank you Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
