should i buy a gh3 for hq video and stills?
Aug 21, 2013

Friends,

I am interested in shooting bands and long interviews. My existing nex5 heats up after 15 minutes. Is it true that I can use my nex lenses, as well as connect my android nexus 10 as a bigger viewfinder, plus keep my laptop connected for continuous download as I film?

What kind of cables would one need? What tripod?

I have been on the fence regarding the gh3, but then I read this:

I was considering getting the lens mentioned in the article too.

Am I making a mistake?

I own a canon rebel xt some canon lenses, an 85 mm Zeiss lens that I bought for the nex5, the standard nex 5 kit zoom lens and a nexus 10 tablet and a windows laptop.
