We have been providing professional photography services for quite some time now and now clients are demanding a lot to cover their events as well.
I normally shoot with 5D Mark II and Mark III all the time.
And for videography, Im thinking to buy a tripod, monopod, 2 extra 32GB CF cards and a new 5D Mark III .
I have no idea about camcorders available which is better than 5D mark III within the 4000 USD range.
So, can someone help me with it ?
My main requirements :
Full HD recording, 1920x1080p
29 or 30fps
Good storage and long shooting time
Good focal range and aperture atleast should be wider till f2.8 .
Pros with 5D Mark III setup :
I can simply buy a Canon 16-35mm f2.8 lens and attach to 5D Mark III , so I can get aperture wider till 2.8 .
Cons with 5D Mark III setup :
But a lot of CF cards , sandisk extreme pro cards are priced crazy high. For a 2-3 hours event, I will end up buying around 5-10 cards, which would be around more 3000 USD, which is impossible now.
So, what brand and make model, would you suggest, now that you know my requirements ?
Budget : 4000 USD.
