Has anyone compared the footage from these cameras? On paper it doesn't look like there's any reason to spend the money on the 5D if all I want to do is shoot video.
i got a GH3 but i am wondering did i make a mistake, should i have gotten the ag-ac90 insted

Panasonic announce the new digital single lens mirrorless LUMIX DMC-G6 camera for photo and video. Is not just an interchangeable lens camera, but also an advance digital photographic tool with attractive features.
I need to buy me a Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Standard Zoom Lens STM

Hey guys, i'm getting into photography/videography and am looking at some dslr's. I will mainly use it for downhill skateboarding, which in short is people go down big hills on skateboards (longboards) at very high speeds. I've been to around 42mph and i need something that will take stationary pictures of my freinds going by me while im standing on the side of the road. We wear full face helmets, gloves, knee pads, etc. and aren't just crazy teenagers. I'm leaning towards the nikon, and i have heard the canon T3 feels "cheap" in the plastic sense.
The GH2 is an awesome camera, really awesome once you hack it. The only problem is the lack of custom made accessories for its form factor.
A few months ago I was looking to gear up my GH2 with a nice follow focus rig for shooting video, and if anyone else out there has done the same thing, you've probably realized that there aren't quite as many options as there are for the canons.
(or even the nikons for that matter)
But I did come across something really nice -
the SYSTEM ZERO Follow Focus Standard Panasonic GH2 from IDC.
I'm in the pre-production phase of writing a music video that involves a lot of shots of a man looking into various reflective surfaces (mirror, glass building, puddle etc) and seeing a girl (his girlfriend) back out at him. I was wondering would any of you have any ideas on how best to approach this type of shot? I have thought about greenscreening, but have to consider getting the perfect angles and also shooting the two separate and just making them appear correct in post production...
I'm thinking of buyin a Flycam and wondered if anyone has any experience with them?
I was also thinking of buying the vest and arm with it, but is it worth it or should I just buy the Flycam on its own?
I'm using it for short films, with Canon 600D
Cheers in Advance
