I Want To Shoot Video With My Camera 

Panasonic Lumix GH5S


Cameras Perfect For Video Positives 

Gone are the days when you needed a separate camcorder to record video as DSLRs, Mirrorless and even compact cameras now do this. Plus, so can your smartphones and there are also action cameras which have video as their main purpose. 

Choice is the main positive when it comes to cameras that can shoot video as if you want to capture good quality footage for sharing with friends on social media, just use your smartphone but if you're into extreme sports or plan on going on a bit of an adventure, then an action camera will be a better fit. For top-quality footage, you're going to need a DSLR or Mirrorless camera with their specific movie controls/options and optimal processing power. 


Cameras Perfect For Video Negatives 

The negatives will depend on what type of camera you buy but the main one for DSLRs/Mirrorless cameras that are perfect for video is the cost as they're not cheap and you'll need external accessories such as mics to really use them properly.

Our Recommendation: Panasonic Lumix GH5

Panasonic Lumix GH5

Panasonic has the widest range of 4K cameras on the market and they expanded the 4K video recording capabilities of the GH5, as well as introducing a 6K photo mode, that can record 6K video at 30fps, for 18 megapixel still photos.

The Panasonic Lumix GH5 is designed to be the ultimate professional video camera available in a compact interchangeable lens camera (ILC) design and it certainly fits the bill.
