Hello everyone, happy I found this forum.
I am currently shooting with a Sony Handycam HDR-PJ710 from 2012. I feel that it is time to upgrade as this is for work.
I been eyeing some cameras, one I keep hearing about is the Panasonic G7 with 4K.
I feel the camera I have now isn’t that great so suggestions would be great!
I really do not want to exceed the $1,500 price range, but if there is something you could recommend me that is a bit higher, I would be open to it.
On a sidenote, is 4K the way to go? I have read some people saying no, while others yes. I want the highest quality possible that shows off the details.
Thanks in advance.

Fuji XT3 which shoots 4K 60fps internally looks like the best option to me. The dynamic range and the built in LUTS as well as really good continuous autofocus, face and eye recognition are hard to beat. The only thing it lacks is in camera stabilization, but if you shoot from a tripod it doesn’t matter, but if you shoot handheld, it could be a problem.

If you supply material to events with massive video screens, or are shooting for future proof archive, or of course broadcast, then 4K is good – BUT – there are very different kinds of 4K. You can get a consumer 4K handicam or GoPro type camera that has 4K format, but the picture from a 1080 camcorder build with excellent glass can knock socks off it! the number of pixels is irrelevant as a quality determinator. Can the lens resolve images of that pixel count? Cheap ones just can’t. A spot of detail that should be landing on a single pixel with a basic lens might land on 9!
The X-T3 at the top of your budget is great, but how much will a decent matching 4K lens cost? The cheap lens often sold in the package at 2-300 is hardly a brilliant performer.
4K ultimate quality or just 4K pixel count? My small GoPro is 4K, while some 4K quality lenses cost more than a car!
