I will go a bit into details so you guys can give me good advice. Thanks a lot
I'm doing experiments at university, using a camera to capture the strain of fractured materials when pulling them apart.
A software will analyze each frame in the video to get the strain.
Also the camera can be used for taking photos of other experiments.
So I think a 4K dslr is the way to go. Sharpness and resolution are the most important factors.
I'm a Canon fan, but I don't think Canon cameras can match Nikon's in these areas.
Was considering the Nikon D500, until I saw this page: https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikon-d500/6
The sharpness from the Sony a6300 is a lot better than the Nikon.
However I have never used a mirrorless camera before, so don't know any issues may arise during the filming process.
So could you guys please give me advice on:
- Experiences when filming with a mirrorless camera on a tripod (have a feeling that the body of a mirrorless camera is too light...)
- Alternative options besides the D500 and a6300 (with similar resolution and sharpness), budget is about $3000. I've never used a Nikon or Sony products before.
Thank you very much.
