Advice from a professional videographer on the best equipment from beginner to advanced.


If you’ve never shot video before and want a good still camera to boot with lots of zoom flexibility, try the Sony RX100. $450 US


A lightweight but mighty camera in terms of image quality and low-light performance. Sony Alpha a6500 Mirrorless, $1,400 US (no lens)


A favourite among professional videographers, the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 offers amazing image quality, great auto-focus and good stabilization. $2,000 US (no lens)

To go along with the GH5, try this all purpose lens: Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-140mm. $697 US.
