Advice on new Video Gear Blackmagic or Pana
Aug 20, 2013

I am looking to buy a video gears for my work. I was thinking of moving away from DSLR based videos to Blackmagic Cinema Camera or wait for Panasonic.

What do you guys suggest wait for Panasonic to come up with something better sensor and performance than Blackmagic or Blackmagic is the best option available.

I usually buy equipment in such a way that it handles proofing of 5-10 years of future upgrade for bodies.  Since 4k is going to be standard sooner or later, is it better to buy or invest in a 4k sensor or work on 2.5k as of now and then proceed ahead. My Primary area of work has been focused on fashion.

I understand that there is steep learning curve for BlackMagic gears interms of post and softwares. I have been user of FCP for a while now. So Panasonic is not an issue but there is a waiting time for it.

I have a saved a budget of around 6k till now.

Appreciate your responses.
