GH2 and 5D Mark II (or III) vs. D800

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a low budget drama, and looking for the best camera to use.


My original thought was to use a GH2 with the hack for a majority of the work and filling in with a 5D (when we need wide shots, but can't pull the (GH2) camera back any further).


But I've also been thinking about D800.


We're hoping to shoot 90% on a sound stage, so lighting is pretty much 100% controlled. Planning on using Compact Primes.




My ideal camera would have been the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, but we're shooting in July and it's not shipping until the end of July or August.
