I am open to spending up to $900 and investing more later if that is what is required.
I have some experience with DSLRs and am currently using a gopro to make crappy edits.
I have a good variety of mounts for my gopro and a standard tripod but nothing besides that.
This camera will be mostly for skiing but I will also be shooting skate edits and maybe a short film.
I would be ok with a camera that is simple enough to use with no experience or one with lots of control.
I do a lot of follow cams so hopefully it has good stabilization but that could be a later investment.
