Not really. Look at Panasonic or Sony if you'll get spending that kind of money. The Panasonic G85 (affiliate link) is only $100 more, and it provides much better 4K video and stabilization. Canon is far behind for cameras at this price.

u/kabbage123 · 6 pointsr/videography

The majority of my clients are automotive.

All the marketing directors I work with keep trying to do the same thing as you (purchasing gear to avoid hiring a professional videographer like myself). They always do one or two videos, realize it's a lot harder than they think, and end up calling me to do it. A few months later they buy a new toy and try again, only to fall on their face and calling me again.

At a BARE minimum, you should get a G85 and pair it with a great versatile lens that takes advantage of dual IS like this one. A great lav kit is needed for this type of shoot, shotgun mics are not your friend on a live car dealership set. Don't forget an external audio recorder, too. And a tripod with fluid head.

tl;dr Hire a local videographer with gear, then offer them a retainer guaranteeing him/her 20 hours a month. It's a lot easier and you'll probably end up doing it anyway. They'll take of everything for you and you can focus on bigger picture stuff.

u/i_enjoy_lemonade · 5 pointsr/videography

Alright, I guess I'll be "that guy" since one of us has to.

OP, those camcorders are solid. However, as a videographer, I do all of my filming on a Panasonic Lumix G7. You can get one for $600 on Amazon. If you're willing to spend a bit more, you can spring for either the newer Lumix G85 or the GH4 which can be found for around $1200.

These cameras are much more suitable for videography, here's why:

  • Interchangeable lenses. This is huge. As you continue to improve your craft, you will begin to learn about using different lenses to achieve the "look" you're aiming for. You can't change lenses on a camcorder.

  • Removable media. They uses SD cards, whereas some of those camcorders have built-in hard drives. That's fine, but if you ever find yourself "running and gunning" as I do, you will need to use multiple SD cards.

    Here are some of the images you can achieve with the Lumix G7.

    As far as audio goes, I use the Rode VideoMic Go. It's not too glorious, but it gets the job done.

    It should also go without saying that yes, these things take monster still photos as well.

    I personally edit on a Late 2016 MacBook Pro with the 2.6 GHz Intel i7 and Radeon Pro 460 graphics. You will be just fine editing on something much cheaper, like a Mac Mini or iMac.

    If you're looking for something cheaper, check out Apple's Refurbished Mac store. There also is always /r/buildapc. You could build a monster editing PC for ~$800.
u/CallMeByYourDogsName · 5 pointsr/videography

I’m gonna go against the grain here and say that there are plenty of cameras you could’ve gotten that are better for video than the t7i. Not to say that you shouldn’t have bought it, but I will say that you should’ve done your homework. Don’t be spontaneous with your purchases. I did the same thing as you and bought a cheap camera, because I just wanted anything to get myself started.

Here’s a list of cameras I would buy before buying a t7i:

Panasonic G85 - $700

Panasonic G7 w/kit lens - <$500

Sony A6300 - <$800

Used Panasonic Gh4 - $600? Maybe

If you could save a little, I’d go for the GH5 or the BMPCC 4K or the XT-1, or maybe a used Sony.

There’s so many options out there. I’m not trying to get you down or anything. I just think you can do better for the money. You can probably get great footage from the rebel. It is true that you have to have a good eye for film. But it doesn’t hurt to have some nice machines to help along the way. Good luck, friend.

Edit: I like what one of the people in the comments said. Go shoot your videos. It’s only a waste if you don’t use it.

u/HybridCamRev · 4 pointsr/videography

/u/One1Seven- - with a $1,100 budget, I recommend a [new $997.99 Panasonic G85 with the 12-60mm kit lens] (https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-DMC-G85MK-Mirrorless-Interchangeable-Megapixel/dp/B01M050N05/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ll1&tag=battleforthew-20) over the G7.

The G85 is the only interchangeable lens camera below $1,000 that combines 4K resolution, in-body image stabilization, weather-sealing and an external mic jack in the same camera.

In [this] (https://www.reddit.com/r/PanasonicG7/comments/5d0gcy/help_a_15_yearold_decide_if_the_g7_is_worth/) thread, /u/firworks, who owns both the G85 and the G7, says, "Since I bought my G85 I have not touched the G7 except like I said one specific time I needed two angles at once" and "As for do I think it is clearly superior, I definitely do. I was really unsure when I first bought the G85 if I should have just stuck with the G7 but now I'm so glad I went for it. I'm shooting and recording every single day and everything is coming out so nice (to me at least) that I couldn't really imagine using the G7 again except for when I need to take photos/video OF the G85, or when I have to have two angles at the same time."

This camera is so new, there isn't a lot of footage, but here is some general handheld video to show you the lack of camera shake:

u/jam6618 · 3 pointsr/videography

Yeah, what is your budget? A bunch of the main stream DSLRs work with the video mic go even though they do not state plug in power. The Canon T3i, T4i, T5i, and T6i all work with it. The Panasonic Lumix GH3, GH4, G7, and G85 all work with it. The Canon 5D Mk3 works with it. The Nikon D800 works with it. A whole bunch more cameras work with it but we can't give you a good recommendation unless you give us a budget.

u/SabishiiFury · 3 pointsr/photography

I'm trying to decide on my first camera (mirrorless), any help would be appreciated. These are the options:

[https://www.ebay.com/itm/Panasonic-LUMIX-DMC-GX7-16-0MP-Digital-Camera-Silver-Body-Only-/282733706288?_trksid=p2349526.m4383.l4275.c10](Lumix DMC-GX7 - Used (body only) 260 Eur) - some kind of a cheap outlier.

PANASONIC LUMIX G7 4K Mirrorless Camera, with 14-42mm MEGA O.I.S. Lens - 540 eur. The lens included has image stabilization, but I'm still a little bit bummed about it not having any stabilization in the body. My always trembling hands are my worst enemy. But then I'm probably exaggerating, it can't be that bad, can it?

OLYMPUS E-M10II (Silver) + 14-42mm IIR (Silver) 579.99 €

This (and a sony 6000 + some fuji) was the only camera I got to hold and I was blown away by the way it (and sony, fuji really sucked) sat in my hand, it was just perfect and the fact that it felt secure when held by just one hand left a good impression on me. However, I didn't try any of its functions, and I don't know how good is the lens. I am thinking about this and the G7 as my first and cheapest options. The main things that I have for olympus is that I can buy it here from a physical store and the ergonomics. The G7 though I would buy because it has more features (as in my list below), but I have no clue how well it's going to be ergonomics-wise and how well will the lack of in-body stabilization work.

Fujifilm X-T20 Silver+XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS II Black Lens 790 €

This has APS-C (I don't really know if there's much difference between this and 4/3, but still nice), but doesn't have an in-body stabilizer. And only tilting lcd, and that's it? Wait why am I even considering this...

Panasonic Lumix G85 961€

Things that make me consider Lumix G85:

 - Environmental sealing. I Would absolutely love to use my camera in rain and snow. Or can it be done even if there is no sealing? Neither my phone or headphones had ever had any issues, and they're constantly under pouring rain.

 - Fully articulated display. I don't even know why I want this - I'm not a big selfie fan, and I don't film videos, but just the thought of someday wanting to and already being able to do so with the resources already under my possession makes me feel a tad bit "future proof"... I've never had a "real" camera so I don't know what things I could think of doing with it. What if not having such a screen would limit something I'd want to do at some point, for example taking a picture of something on ground level, or stealth mode?

 - Image stabilizer. I've read that having body stabilization is a lot better than having a lens stabilization, and I myself would feel a little bit more secure knowing that I can buy any lens and not be limited to only those that have inner stabilization.

 - Possibility that there are some new technologies in it that you couldn't find in older models (taking still shots from a 4k video, for example, or

 - Battery saving mode)

It's all good, but is it worth paying twice for all of this? 

Is there something else I might be forgetting right now? I'm leaning towards G7 right now.. I'd probably pick sony a6300 if it only had touch screen (navigating through menu with only buttons has been a pain in the ass in my experience)

I want to use it for travel and occasional portrait/landscape photo

u/InvisibleJiuJitsu · 2 pointsr/GH5

my hitlist would be the G85 and the 2 lenses i use most on my GH5, the 12-35 f2.8 mk2 and the 25mm f1.7

u/AKMurphOG · 2 pointsr/videography

but the best price i can find on amazon without the bundle that ships to alaska is This one here. It is the same price and i dont get the extra batteries and the grippy tripod which i could use maybe. Also the SD card.

u/MasterU571 · 2 pointsr/Filmmakers

I think you could greatly benefit from something like the Panasonic G85. It's the camera I'm currently saving up for. It's got those great mirrorless benefits, but without that price tag. Currently at $1k.

u/1armedfreak · 2 pointsr/Cameras

My recommendations

All of these meet your resolution and frame rate requirements.

this camera is very conveniently sized. it has a non interchangeable 24-70 lens but it is a really good lens. In your case it would be great since its small, light, and takes really nice photos and video. It also has image stabilization and insane auto-focus. One of the reasons this camera is so popular is the slow motion capabilities. If you want interchangeable lens the a6300-and a6500 carry the same sony auto focus that is just rediculous.

Finally this camera is geared more towards video people. It has the least mega pixel count of the two but with the no low pass filter it still can go head to head in pic quality with the other above. One of the biggest features of this camera is the image stabilization, it will blow you away. In addition to IBIS it also has great auto focus and the best touch screen available of a camera, its also sealed and can with stand a "camping" environment.

u/inkista · 1 pointr/AskPhotography

Camera prices depreciate, even while a model is new. What the initial MSRP is tends to get lowered over time as the street price. The easiest way I've found to figure out what the current street price of something is, is to check Amazon, B&H, and Adorama prices. :D

The price has been at $800 since August, according to camelcamelcamel.com, which graphs both new and used Amazon prices over time (G85 graph). But B&H is saying the $200 off deal is until Nov 21st, so could be a Black Friday deal is in the offing. But there's never a guarantee.

u/theonlysaviorCOD · 1 pointr/videography

Have you considered the Lumix G85 (amazon affiliate link that goes towards funding my college senior thesis film). I think this would be a very good camera for you because of the 5 axis stabilization, which would be great on trail runs and the run and gun style I see in most travel videos. It's mirrorless so it's very lightweight, and can be put on any number of hand grips to help stabilize it even further. In addition to the one I linked above having a zoom lens, the body has a micro four thirds interchangeable lens system, which means that you could get a prime lens to record yourself at home. It also has a microphone input so you could get a shotgun mic that would be an incredible step up in audio quality.

u/Jyrobotomus · 1 pointr/photography

Yeap, 16-60mm is equal to 24mm-120mm on FF.


Excellent price for a rock solid camera if you are not printing your prints at hella large sizes.

u/g-flip21 · 1 pointr/videography

yeeah I agree with @kabbage123 but I prefer the [G85] (http://amzn.to/2tS0zDq) better than the a6500 b/c of the flip screen

Panasonic G85 is the standard suggestion. $1,000 at B&H and they're doing a promo right now where it comes with two lenses, the 12-60m and 45-200m. It's like the G7, but with stabilization. Last couple vids on my channel were shot with the G85 (link).

u/MontyManta · 1 pointr/photography

Sorry I can't give a technical explanation for what I need in a camera, I guess I shouldn't be a beginner. I though giving my ultimate goal IE botanical photography and 3 cameras with lenses and asking if people though any of those combos were better than the others for my purpose was enough.

Also the g85 is under $700 on amazon with the 12-60 mm lens I mentioned in my post. For reference, Amazon's current listing: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M050N05/ref=psdc_3109924011_t2_B079VDF7ZG?th=1

Thanks for nothing and being off putting to a newcomer to the photography community.

u/TygerWithAWhy · 1 pointr/videography

That was extremely helpful! Heres what I've got so far.

I'm torn between the G7 with a 12-140mm lens and the G85 with a 12-60mm lens. They are the exact same price (if I get the G7 with 14-42mm it's half the price) But from what I've read and watched, the G85 only seems marginally better and people say it hums whenever its on. Would getting the older G7 that comes with a better lens be a better purchase? (Links



G85, then G7) In your opinion, does the newer attributes of the G85 outweigh the much larger range lense of the G7 option? This video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_fjscdhJ0M ) makes the G85 stabilization seem very impressive. But I'm still on the fence, the 140mm capability of the G7 seems like it could remove the need for a long/tight shot lense.

As per the video you linked, I'm looking at getting the rode lavalier that the speaker mentions due to its convenience and price. I also subscribed and will be watching more.


And for room/atmosphere sound I was curious if you use a shotgun mic, or a traditional supercardoid boom mic more often if it is attached above the camera.

If there is any way I could repay you for all the help you've given let me know. You've saved me countless hours of research and hundreds (if not thousands) in mis-bought goods. When I got into recording and mixing I spent weeks researching mics and audio interfaces on forums, reviews, and asking people at my university for their opinion; but the information you have imparted has cut this time significantly in my pursuit of filming. Thank you very much.

u/Bro_Dave · 1 pointr/Panasonic_G80_G85

80 and 85 have to do with which market is sold in.

Here's the g85 on Amazon (USA)


I think besides the market origin, the 85 comes setup with NTSC and the 80 had PAL.

I believe they can be changed regardless. But I may be wrong.
