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 have been using my DSLR (Nikon D5100) for quite sometime for photography. However, in the next year, I will be involved in a project or two where I will be mainly shooting videos for YouTube.
I used my D5100 for YouTube and it is fantastic. However, because I am going to be recording mainly videos, I was wondering if there is a better alternative to shooting with a DSLR especially if it offers more features, video quality, flexibility or ease of use.
Budget is < 2500 USD

was wondering if anyone has has thoughts about which would be a better buy...pricing it out on b&h is seems that the 80 is only about $35 more(since i want xlr inputs, you need to buy the adapter for the 40) the features are very similar so i wanted to get a feel for what everyone's thoughts were
I posted this over at avsforum.com but was told I might want to check here, so here goes.
I've been into amateur movie production toward the end of high school and through college with a buddy of mine. He had a GL2 for a while, then upgraded to HD with a smaller Canon Vixia HV40 and a JAG35 adapter and simple shotgun mic mount. Those were the cameras we both worked with to make some movies for fun and shoot snowboarding a little. Having worked with that camera for a couple of years now, I've noticed some downsides to the lack of manual control.
I have a Panasonic AG-HMC40 in excellent condition for sale. It includes the AG-MYA30G - XLR Microphone Adapter,
Mic with cable & windscreen, 43mm polarizer, VW-VBG6 Rechargeable
Li-Ion Battery, A/V cables, Battery charger, Kata bag, and all manuals,
CD and paperwork. Total use time is less than 4 hours. I am asking $1500
I will pay for shipping to US addresses.
I also have the following, all unused in excellent condition:
Panasonic - VWW4307HPPK 0.7x Wide Angle $120
I am struggling to decide between the Panasonic TM/HS-900 and the Canon Vixia HF G10. The camera will be use for family movies and ocasional very low budget documentaries and some work like live theater recording and industrial video.
The G10 is said to have outstanding low light capabilities, which is a real plus for shooting indoor with ambient light for home movies and documentaries, but the G10 is USD 400 more than the TM900.
