Best camera for 350$

Recommended Posts

Hi! 

 

Got a friend thats gonna buy himself a new videocamera, he has a budget on 350$ (yeah i know it's not much :p) and i was thinking maybe someone here knows of something good?

 

There are alot of cheap options out there, and he is not sure what to pick.

 

Appreciate any suggestion !

EOSHD Pro Color for Sony cameras EOSHD Pro LOG for Sony CamerasEOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles for All Canon DSLRs

or Panasonic gf3 hacked to 100mb/s

 

Wouldn't recommend the GF3, no manual controls is cumbersome. Also it is not as sharp as a GH1/GH2 even with a high bitrate hack.

 

$350 for a GH2 is going to be difficult I think. A GH1 might be a good option. NEX-5N too.

If he wants quality, he wants a DSLR. You can buy Canon T2i (maybe T3i) used for about $350, usually with the kit lens. If he can find a GH2, even better -- but T2i/T3i are both solid starting camera systems.

Hacked GH1 is best option for $350.

 

GH2 won't be that cheap!


550D is OK but GH1 has less moire and aliasing, rotating screen, mirrorless lens mount for a wider variety of lenses and the hack.
