Reply To: Choosing a New Video Camera


I recommend the Lumix FZ80 bridge camera which has 4K, tracking autofocus, and is completely auto when shooting video. 4K segments are limited to about 8 minutes, but for less than $300 and a 20mm to 1200mm focal length you can buy two and put them both on a tripod. Rather than rely on in camera audio I recommend you use a separate audio recorder like a Zoom to capture audio then sync it to the video in the editor.
