Best 4k phone with add-on lenses


Recommended Posts

How that the CM1 seems like a video dud can someone recommend a 4k phone for video with add-on lenses available?  Now that I'm back in NYC I am constantly discovering things to shoot and want to make sure have the best phone since I don't like always having to carry a camera.


Also, would a 4k phone need a telephoto lens or would zooming in (finishing in 1080) during post or using the digital zoom when filming work just as good?

Just get used to carrying it more and you'll be fine. A much better solution for producing images compared to a cell phone, you should pay the small inconvenience of carrying it if you care about image-making at all, if you don't and just want to capture moments, an Iphone is the best and most convenient. Carry an LX100 in your jacket pocket/small bag and be done with it, that's my advice.

If walk-around run & gun is your thing I recommend the A7 Mark II with the 5 axis stabilisation. Bigger than a phone and an extra device to carry but in my view, good stabilisation for that kind of thing is more important than 4K. The 4K you would get from a phone would barely be any more detailed than 1080p and it would look compressed, clipped, limited dynamic range, video-ish. Interchangeable lenses on a large sensor are the way to go for video if you don't want it to look like rubbish.
