View Full Version : GH5 or Panasonic Hc-X1

06-14-2017, 01:24 AM
I'm looking to buy a new camera and I don't know what to chose. I do a lot of documantary work and also events and sometimes short sketches (ussualy in the docu).
Should I go for the Panasonic GH5 or the Panasonic HC-X1 (videocamera, 1inch sensor, 4K60p...)
If I take the GH5 then I lose the auto focus for run and gun but I do have cinematic shots. If I take the HC-X1 I have run and gun but I don't have the cinematic feel.
I also think that the form factor of the HC-X1 is a downside because I'm always afraid thiefs are going to steal it. But the GH5's formfactor can also be a downside because it doesn't look professional.
Any help?
