SIMPLE.If your interested in filming action sports i.e. you'll need a high frame rate camera. If you want it for photography and video I would recommend the Nikon D5300 as it shoots at 60fps at 1080p and is the cheapest camera with these specs($750 on amazon http://www.amazon.com/Nikon-D5300-Digital-Camera-Built/dp/B00FXYT12G). My friend has this camera and has been very happy with it's performance and although Nikon's are that widely used on NS (most people seem to use Canon, including myself) I would highly recommend it. Especially because Nikon's old manual lenses are much cheaper and unlike Canon they will fit on without an adaptor. If money really isn't an issue then you'll want the Lumix Gh4 as it has the same 60fps at 1080 however for just over 1500$ your paying for the great lowlight visuals, full frame sensor and 4k capabilities.
This is just my personal opinion and as no more than an amateur film maker, you may wanna wait for a more experienced person to offer their decision.
BlackcountryBillGH4 isnt full frame...
I'd second a D5300, such a solid camera for not much money.
SIMPLE.Awk moment when I mucked that..... however admittedly I know next to nothing about GH4s cuz they're WAY out of my price range. But yeah D5300 is unreal for the money
