I have video gear for nikon, canon, blackmagic and panasonic lumix. And if i had to choose only one dslr camera, then I would choose the panasonic lumix gh4 with an adapter to ef-mount. The GH4 can shoot up to 96fps at 1080p! and it can also shoot 4K footage!
The gh4 is on sale right now at amazon.com
Six months from now, I can pretty much guarantee there will be another great camera "just around the corner"
In the meantime, you'll have missed some great filmmaking opportunities.
I would go ahead and pick up a GH4 while it's on sale for $1497.99.
I own this camera, and it is the best value for your money at this price point.
Good luck with your decision!
Thanks again, HybridCamRev.
Yeah, I suppose the difference between a $1k camera vs a $30k+ camera is quite substantial. I think you've convinvced me for the GH4, and it would be a much easier transition (given I still have to figure out how to tinker around with V-Log settings)
So you're saying get the GH4 with V-LOG. So not all GH4's have V-LOG built in? For example, the one on Amazon doesn't have V-LOG? And V-LOG is better to use over the Cinelike D that the GH4 has?
/u/CrumblingCookie95 - I have one of the earlier FZ cameras with a variable aperture zoom - and it's not a problem if you can plan ahead. And it's a real luxury not to have to worry about changing lenses.
That said, coming from micro 4/3, the real challenge with FZ cameras is the 1" sensor size. It will be much more difficult to get shallow depth of field than with your G6.
Since you already have lenses, the best value for your money is probably $1,197.99 for the GH4's larger sensor, compatibility with constant aperture (and anamorphic) lenses - plus its easier upgrade path to the GH5 - for the same price as the FZ2500.
Hope this is helpful and good luck with your upgrade!
