eheathWhat's your budget? the vg30 is meh in my opinion
FrostyLocal shop has the VG30 with lens on sale for $1750 so let's call that my budget.
I have a t2i with Canon 50/1.8, and Tamron 17-50/2.8 (what everyone had ~4years ago on NS) and used to film with that. Now that I want to get back into filming, I realize I do not like that setup because I always spent so much time dialing in everything and never felt like I could just pick up my camera and start filming (this could definitely be because I just suck at filming).
I haven't used any other camera since and haven't filmed in about 2 years so obviously the technology has improved a lot, I just don't know firsthand how much. Which is probably why I am originally drawn to a video first type of camera.
eheathI'd say go gh3/gh4 or sony a7s, you could use canon lenses on either, but it could get expensive. But i'd say don't get the vg30, if you want a bigger camera like that get a used fs100.
