Z CAM E2

The Z-CAM E2 is the best damn budget-friendly cinema camera on the market. Period. Yes, it is better than the BMPCC 4K. Yeah, I said it. You cannot go wrong with a Z-CAM. It’s a full cinema camera for the price of an A7III.

SONY A7III

The Sony A7III is the budget mid-range budget-friendly hybrid camera currently on the market. True, it is not a cinema camera by any stretch of the imagination. Everything the Sony A7III does, it does it extremely well.

SONY A6300

The Sony A6300 is the perfect starter camera for beginning filmmakers. The 4K capabilities of the A6300, alone, will surpass anything you might get with a Canon T3i. Don’t be fooled, save your money, and get a Sony A6300.

LENSES

ZEISS BATIS 25MM F/2

Your wide shots just got sharper! I love this Zeiss Batis 25mm F/2. It’s always clutch in a pinch. I once shot an entire video on this lens with a Sony A6300. The results were more than impressive. It’s a pricey lens, but cheaper than a G-Master and worth every penny.

ZEISS 55MM F1.8

The Nifty Fifty! The Zeiss 55mm F/1.8 is supposedly the sharpest lens known to Sony cameras. I don’t disagree. This is my go-to for tight shots and anything where the background isn’t of any real concern. If you’re not concerned about bokeh, then crank this to F/5.6. Prepare to be blown away.
