HIGH-END DSLR

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.

MIRRORLESS CAM­ERA

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.

PRO­FES­SIONAL CAMCORDER

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.
