hello guys,
sold my p2 broadcast cameras
time to buy another set of camera as a replacement.

I have a lot of canon camera including camcorder.
some one was selling his used 70d for $700
another one was selling 2 nikon d5100 for $800

I didn't personally use a 70d but people were saying that it is good in lowlight @1600ISO?

can it beat Gh4 in indies?

For the ISO speed, all three of them can use up to ISO25600.
For both canon and nikon, they have own brand lenses, and the gh4 has other brand G. VARIO or leica. The leica lenses are pretty good, but very expensive.
For the camera body, the nikon is the non-Pro DSLR lineup, it is nothing wrong. If you don't matter then it is good.

But I will recommend to consider canon and gh4. But the canon has bigger sense ( 22.5 x 15 mm) than the gh4 ( 17.3 x 13 mm ), because for the bigger sense you will get best photo. Other feature gh4 is the 4K video recording capability.
I add the reviews, may consider the budget, features to pick one, good luck.

I dont care about the max ISO since I am only using a 1600ISO in my M3, 5d, and c100.I want a canon but lately my clients were curious about 4k. I am planing to change my camera into 4k after 5 years but not now. Can it focus fast in 50mm 1.8 II (non-stm)

How about the 80D? It's better than the 70D in absolutely every way, and from the looks of it the noise is even lower than the 5D MK III!

Also, it gains the 45point AF with specs between the 5D MKIII and the new 1D
