WAS: ... another iPhone movie NOW: Fujifilm X-T3 Video Specs

PS - I agree with Rachel on the tiny Sony mirrorless cameras. In terms of quality they're very close to the Alpha series that are used at the mid level all the time (in my opinion).

They are nice, I have the a6500 and have used it on numerous things which I didn't think I would, but you have to be within certain parameters or they break down very easily once you're in a grade

Same goes for just about every sub-$5k camera.

Blackmagic being the exception.

I bought the a6500 for stills, but have been surprised at how often I pull it out for motion - especially when I need to squeeze it into a tight space, or want to use the Pilotfly-gimbal

By the way, the pilotfly has a few issues that can make it unreliable in a fast paced production environment - which kills me, because it has great features and a one of the high payloads in its class.

I was wondering if anyone has any advice for a good one hand gimbal that is simple and robust that I may consider as an alternative/replacement.

Will hold the a6500/zeiss 16-70 and a wireless receiver at most. 3-4 lbs tops

Thanks,

Ah yes that camera looks very nice.  I've always loved the film emulation on the Fuji's for stills (never used it for video).  When it's time to upgrade my a6300 a Fuji will be on my short list now that the specs are more serious (4k/60p looks nice).

Agreed.  It's just like the 5D days.  You can't really manipulate the image like you can with a robust codec or raw, but if you get the basics right in camera I don't feel like I'm held back by it.  I haven't used it myself or compared it with the pilotfly, but the new DJI Ronin S is getting good reviews.
