I like to film in 60fps most of the time on my canon 550D which has been fairly bashed around over the years. I would like a camera which can give a nice and clean 1080p image at 60fps for preferably under Â£500 (but let me know of any above that if you want to).
I’m obviously interested in the A7S but it’s a bit out of reach for me!
The Samsung NX500 also interests me but putting canon lenses on it is a bit of an issue.

Hi Finn – the best 1080/60p mirrorless camera in your price range is the Panasonic G6, which is £394 right now at Amazon UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00CI3ITDW/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=19450&creativeASIN=B00CI3ITDW&linkCode=as2&tag=videomaker22forum-20
For £107.77 more you can get a Commlite Canon EF/EF-S to micro 4/3 adapter that will allow you to use your Canon lenses with full electronic aperture control: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B013S9UTNW/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=19450&creativeASIN=B013S9UTNW&linkCode=as2&tag=videomaker22forum-20
This camera has a viewfinder that actually works while you’re recording video, has a built-in intervalometer for time lapse, records at up to 1080/60p for smooth slow motion, has a kit lens with a silent autofocus motor and is compatible with affordable power zoom lenses.
Here is what this camera can do:
It is a capable still camera too: https://www.flickr.com/groups/lumix-g6/pool/ (link is external)
In my view, this is the best large sensor, interchangeable lens still/video camera you can buy for less than £500.
Hope this is helpful and good luck with whatever camera you decide to buy!

Hello. Excellent. Which fixed-lens zoom cameras do you find best choice/s for its video quality, specially when there is action ie consistent focusing needed as in rugby match? and of course, no artifacts wanted like in FZ1000 and FZ300. Good night!
