Which camera for freelance film making? GH3 5D3 AC90 or other?


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!


Need some good advice.

I've decided to buy a camera for free-lance film making.


What i need:


- 95% for film making

- excellent low light performance

- superb colors

- maximum details in shadows

- fast one

- not so expensive... :)


I wanted to make also commercial-like films and short promotional clips to Hotels with girls in room or something like that for example Miss Hotel xy, etc.(dont joking...).


One of my friend mentioned me Panasonic AC90. Is it a good camcorder? Can it be better than GH3 or 5D3? Any advice can be useful. Wait for Your replies!


THANKS! (sry for my english)

If low-light shooting is a priority, then you'd probably be better off with something like a 5D3 rather than the GH2.  The 5D's low-light ability and dynamic range are superior.  The GH2 will give finer noise, but it will be present in some shots that would be noise-free on the 5D.

Thank You guys!


Do i recognize corretly You dont agree with buying GH3?


I've used the GH2 before with hack, i liked that, but the WB wasnt the best. I think the new GH3 better in this area, the noise is better too (even the GH2 has finer noise) and acceptable and cheaper than 5D3.

And of course i think the AC90 is dropped :)

as an alternativ you can get cheap Nikon D5200 (see Andrews in deep review). Great image quality; IMHO on par with GH2 + GH3

Good dynamic range. The Nikon primes and zooms are on very good level.

On the other hand: you can get the GH2 very cheap these days.
