Hello,

I hope that I can get some advice from you on the camera equipment to invest in.

Some background… I have been filming video for some years on and off …weddings initially and then sporting and interviewing shoots recently.

I am now making the change to do it as a profession having retired from normal work and looking to start my own business in something that I like.

I currently have a contract with a regional television station to market their channel content globally but have been approached to also provide some exclusive content for them as well as another station.

So I need the get some good kit that will do commercials, interviews and sports coverage as well as some general work an a range of lighting conditions.

I have been reading several reviews, and looking at various specs, but could use some expert advice.

So far I have looks at:

The Blackmagic Design Production Camera 4K with EF Mount .
The Lanparte BMCC-03 BlackMagic Cinema Camera Complete Kit (Black) ,
Tilta by Ikan ES-T09 Red One (Mysterium-X) Camera Rig ,
JVC GY-HM170U 4KCAM Compact Handheld Camcorder with Integrated 12X Lens ,
Panasonic AG-AC90A AVCCAM CAMCORDER Video Camera, AGAC90APJ, With CS Interview/Documentary Kit: Includes Wireless ,
and the Panasonic HC-X1000 4K-60p/50p Camcorder with High-Powered 20x Optical Zoom and Professional Functions (Black)
with Transcend 128 GB U3 SDXC + Panasonic VW-VBD58 Battery + Polaroid Pro Video Microphone Set + PRO LED Light
+ Deluxe Padded Backpack + Deluxe Accessory Bundle

Based on the fact that I am starting from scratch as far as the camera equipment is concerned can you confirm that these are some of the best options considering what I wish to shoot. I have planned to spend $3,000.00 in
the camera and they all fall within my budget, but as professionals in the field I would greatly value your advice.

Look forward to your comments.

Charles.
