Sony Alpha A7S II
Although one of the older models on the list, the Sony Alpha A7S II is still seen by many as one of the best video-shooting stills cameras on the market. With its superb dynamic range and fantastic handling of low light situations, the A7SII is perfect for anyone wanting to shoot on a budget. It is also one of the smaller cameras on the list and is a joy to control, which is perfect for run-and-gun type filmmaking. And with the A7S III on the horizon expect the price to come down considerably as well. Sadly the A7S II only records in 8-bit rather than the broadcast standard of 10 or 12-bit, but it’s a minor gripe in an otherwise great little camera.
