I am new to this forum and also to the photography/video world. I will be traveling to the USA soon and have the intention to buy a decent camera, since the price of these gadgets in my home country is insane.

The primary use for this camera would be to shoot videos for a YouTube channel. I believe that 80% of these videos would be recorded with me seated in a sofa in my office and 20% outside. Eventually I would use this camera for taking pictures outside as well.

After doing a little research, I am inclined to choose the models below, in order of preference. I would like to stay below 1,500 (camera + lenses + acessories).

1 - Canon M6 (small, light, ILC, body cost 600 + 200 adapter to use any canon lenses, would have left 700 to spend on lenses and acessories);

2 - Canon SL2 (drawback: bigger than M6);

3 - Canon D80 (drawback: way bigger than M6);

4 - Sony A6300 (drawback: no articulated LCD);

5 - Panasonic's (great video quality - 4K - drawback: autofocus);

What are your thoughts? Should I go for M6 + adapter?

Thank you!

Make sure you get a camera with a microphone jack and buy a mic, it will improve your videos no end, in camera sound is not good.
