I am planning to buy a new video camera for filming coaching videos (yes, this does mean what you think it means ). I have my eye on the Sony NEX-FS700RH. This is quite an expensive camera, and probably at the limit of what I'm prepared to spend. I am not planning to use the 4K feature, and I understand that this camera requires additional, expensive equipment to record in 4K. I know there are some serious camera buffs here, so I would appreciate feedback on this choice. I have two main questions: Is the lens worth it? Are there any other cameras I should consider? To elaborate about the lens: the 700RH is the model that comes with a lens included. This costs about £1000 more than the model without a lens. I do not have any lenses, so I would have to get something. Should I consider getting a different lens, or should I just get the standard one? As this is video work, I will want a zoom lens for convenience, although I do not expect to use it dynamically -- i.e. I expect to zoom in and out between shots, but not during a shot. Obviously there is no point buying an expensive camera and then using a cheap lens. But this is potentially an area where I might save money. What about other cameras? This camera stood out because of its slow-motion feature, and apparently it has a high image quality and good low-light performance. I will be filming on quite brightly lit badminton courts, but they are still badminton courts and not the same as sunlight. The court I plan to film on has LED lighting, so hopefully slow-motion shots will be free of light flicker. I will probably hire the camera for one day and test it before I buy it.
