Why are you specifically looking for 24fps?

Why don't you want to shoot 4k?

Is this camera for shooting photos while travelling and video when not travelling, or is it for shooting travel videos?

What are your trying to accomplish with your video shooting (family events, youtube, commercial production)?

They say that 24 fps is that nice "theatrical" quality, but now that you mention it I'm not sure who "they" are.

Movies are usually shot at 24fps.  Depending on where you are in the world, TV is either 24fps or 30fps.  For YT, it doesn't really matter

4K, from what I understand, is a lot of size, but maybe that's OK and maybe I'll give that a whirl.

Bigger, but not 4X bigger.  It does give a lot more flexibility for editing.  For example, you can crop into the frame and/or pan around the frame and still have better than 1080p output.

100% photos while traveling/no video and video for my upcoming YouTube Channel. So my big thing is a pivoting LCD and DPAF. I actually like not having a pivoting LCD on my original 6D (for pics).

Also, as I become more familiar with video there's no telling where that may lead.


Are you planning talking head videos where the camera is on a tripod and you are stationery behind a desk, or will it be something more "active"?
