What are your gear options for shooting quality video?
Most photographers use their existing DSLR to start shooting footage. Pro models, such as the nikon D850, offer full-sensor-width 4K recording and uninterrupted recording for up to 30 minutes.
Video-shooting stills cameras, such as the Sony a7S ii, combine a portable form factor with epic low-light performance. With incamera stabilisation, they can produce more steady handheld shots.
QUALITY PRIME LENS
A prime DSLR lens like the Canon 50mm f/1.4 is compact, sharp and fast in low light. 50mm is a popular focal length for weddings.
SERIOUS CINE LENS
Lenses such as the Rokinon 35mm T1.5 Cine are designed with video in mind. Aperture and focus scales are marked on both sides of the lens to aid focus pulling.
if video is your main output, a dedicated camcorder might be preferable to a camera. 4K options, such as the Panasonic hC-X1, have a fixed lens and optical zoom.
