Re: Nikon Z7II + BlackMagic or R5

If the OP is willing to deal with the external with the Z7 he should use one with the R5.

If I understand correctly BM raw is only available if you use one of the BM recorders. The model that supports raw is the more expensive 7inch. OTOH the R5 would likely be fine with the Ninja and just Prores. Unless the OP want 8k raw internally for some reason.

That means the price difference between the R5 and the Z7 is mostly eaten up by the raw firmware and the higher cost BM recorder.

That leaves the OP to decide what matters more. Video or stills quality.
