Pascal Garnier Posted September 25, 2014 Share Posted September 25, 2014 One of the organisations I work for parttime, have asked me to assemble them a compact video setup (both shooting and editing). I'll also be the person shooting and editing for them. The setup will be used for shooting training videos and internal communication. Nothing too fancy, no effects work whatsoever, mostly fairly basic edits. The setup I proposed consists of a new iMac with FCPX (or possibly Black Magic Resolve free version), a decent tripod and a Rode Videomic Rycote. Camerawise I suggested the GH4 w/ 14-140 lens. Since this setup will have to serve them for +5 years, anything less than 4K is a no-go. Now, with the release of the FZ1000 and LX100, which also offer 4K shooting at a lower pricepoint, I'm not too sure anymore about the GH4. I own a GH4 myself, am perfectly happy with it, but buying a camera such as the FZ1000 of LX100 at half the price (including lens) will suffice for their needs. Both are also easier cameras for novice shooters than the GH4, plus the LX100 has image stabilisation. Choosing one of both cameras would also free up more budget for lav mics, external recorders, ... So I think I have my mind made up, but if anyone sees a reason why I should go for the GH4 + 14-140 instead , please let me know why. Also, if you feel why the FZ1000 would be better than the LX100 (or vice versa), let me know. Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
