So im thinking of ditching my current set up (gh3 w/glidecam and tripod and video mic with several lenses) for a much lighterweight compact set up. I find myself taking my camera up the mountain less and less because it inhibits me being able to ski if i feel like it.
Im thinking of grabbing a small compact camera such as the Panasonic tz100 then a gopro gimbal. both of which i can pretty much chuck in my backpack and forget about.
What are people's experience with these kind of setups, like'em? hate'em?
obviously advantages are that i really dont have to think about them too much, disadvantage is IQ and general production value of edits will drop as manual control is less great.
tell me what you think!
