I realize you guys probably hate these "what's the best" threads from noobs as much I as I hate "what's the best ski" threads on the jet ski forums...That said, I'm going to do it anyway
What should I buy for shooting oceanic themed videos? Canon 5D Mark II or Canon 6D? Or given what I'm shooting, should I bite the bullet and spend the coin for a 5D Mark III?
I am looking for the best option for taking my videos to the next level. I am 100% set on a DSLR because I like the ability for short field of depth as well as being able to shoot great stills (but the camera will mainly be used for video). I want to be able to record great low light footage (We camp a lot in the Bahamas), but I also need to be able record great shots off the side of a boat or jet ski, in the water, and on the beach.
Here is an example of some of the stuff I'll be shooting (from my YouTube channel):
I understand that taking these videos to the next level will require better shooting techniques on my part, a steadicam, etc, as much if not more than it will require a better camera. I also realize that the DSLR is not a POV camera like the GoPro's that I've been using. I'd like to do more planned shots in the future, and not just leaving the camera on record all day long in hopes that I get something good.
I also understand that the 6D is not out yet, and specs sometimes lie, but based on specs alone is it worth it to wait for the 6D and pay the extra $300-$400?
Thanks for any advice...
