Help me choose between these cameras and specs for a begginner


first of all, i’m a true beginner in photograp/filmmaking, i never had a camera before and I have 5,000$ to expend in all equips i will need.

I already knows alot about video edition, a little about post and animation, and i will try to start in photo/filmmaking from now, i ever will try wedding jobs here.

I am like 5 months already watching videos, doing research and these things to see what i should buy to start, and i cant decide at all! Its too hard for me and i need a little help if someone can, because i only have 1 month from now.

some things i think will be important for me at this start, and keeping in mind i dont will update my specs in a looong time!

  • a good lowlight performance,
  • a nice photo/film looks (easy to get a good image, blurry backgrounds etc, because i think its good for someone than is starting),
  • good slowmo things,
  • and a good stabilizer and autofocus ofc.

And thats just what i think, u guys can tell me if im wrong or so but lets go.

After my search im stucking between these cameras:

  • sony a6500 (cost a lot less saving me more money to drone, lens, gopro etc,, but i find issues in reviews like RS, and on)
  • panasonic Gh5 (this one looks pretty sweet, but autofocus and in lowlight looks like i will get issues, if so u guys can tell me if i can supply thsi by any way?)
  • A7s ii or a7r ii (i cant choose between these ones, and i will get less money to another specs)

after chose the camera i need at least:

  • one lens (or two)
  • thinking about a gimball (zhyium crane v2)
  • Thinking about a gopro 6
  • and a drone too (phantom 4 pro)
  • focal reducer speedbooster 100$ (idk how it rly works but looks good)
  • the low costs acessories for camera etc

can u guys give me a light? Thx
