  1. Really good and informative video. Thank you. I have an SL2 but i plan on filming a documentary and entering it into film festivals. So i'm really thinking about a 4K camera, just in case 1080 is not accepted or high res enough.

  2. If like to record an uninterrupted 3 hour 1080p 60fpm video on the Sony a6100. I cannot find online how much video time I get on a 128gb or a 256gb memory card. Also does recording at 120fpm cut the memory exactly in half?

  3. In 4K the EOS R crop is unacceptable for many looking for wide angle video. The a7C does not. Also there is nothing wrong with Panasonic. The GH5 has been the video sweetheart for many for years. Real Cinema capabilities on top of that. The new GH5 mk.2 even more so. As a beginner I agree with you on a systems approach for growth. Don’t forget about monitors battery packs and much more that is needed for the video journey. It starts really with you and ends with you. The gear is in the middle of your creative process. And story is why we do it. Ask Ron Howard about that or Hans Zimmer. It is about story always. I have been a photo fan for years. Film remembert that stuff. Video is my latest and greatest for especially house of worship. I use for now an a6400 Sony for my on the fly recording in 4K UHD for my creative options. I have a Panasonic AG-UX90 professional camcorder coming for doing even more. I may go all Panasonic and leave Sony. But that has yet to be determined. I like what the a6400 is doing for me. Except for the bad battery life, work around on that it is stellar. Also don’t forget about used. Save a bunch and get a better camera because someone else had upgrade-itis. Done used for years and saved much. I don’t necessarily need latest and greatest and pay through the nose for it. Think systems, think your expectations,think your workflow, and lastly who is this for you are sharing with. Personal or Professional.

  4. Great video, super informative, and it's nice to finally find someone who compares different budget options in full depth, I've stumbled across many videos showing off 'budget' options that all start at 2 grand+ cameras which for a suuuuuper beginner person like myself isn't ideal haha. I love the look of the Alpha A6100, seems like it has a great amount of features to get started and practice with, might pick that one up, it's good that they have cheap mount options for the mic too so it doesn't cover the screen! Thank you so much for the helpful information, I look forward to seeing more from you 🙂

  5. Hey bro what do you suggest if I need to make small 30 second to 2min videos? I’m starting a business and would just need some shots of me talking showing some products and maybe some vids showcasing healthy restaurants.
