New Camera Gear

I’ve always been one to toy around with cameras and gear. Over the last few years, I’ve had a Canon T3i, Canon G7X Mark II, Canon 5d Mark III, DJI Phantom 4, DJI Mavic Pro, a couple of GoPros, iPhone lenses, and more. To be clear, I didn’t have all of that at the same time as I tend to play the buy/sell/trade game with them.

There are things I liked about almost all of them, but I never could find something that worked perfectly for me. After going through all of that, I made a list of things I wanted from a camera.

  • Interchangeable lenses
  • As compact as possible
  • High-Quality 4K Video Recording
  • 120fps 1080p Video Recording (for slow motion)
  • Good reviews
  • External mic capabilities
  • Viewfinder
  • Excellent autofocus

After making that list, referencing my experience with the listed cameras, and reading an insane amount of reviews, I finally decided on a kit that I think checks off every item.

Here’s what I went with:

I’d like to eventually add a couple more lenses, but I exhausted my budget on the above (I did save money by buying used). If you have any suggestions about my kit, let me know on Twitter.
