What is The Ultimate 4K Mirrorless For Narrative Filmmakers? Here’s Noam Kroll’s Choice

by planetMitchLeave a Comment

Many are searching for the Ultimate 4k Mirrorless camera and at least in 2017, there really are several choices, but the newest models are the Panasonic GH5 and the Fuji X-T2.

Noam Kroll has been on planet5D before (and also this one where he tested the Veydra lenses) and he's put together a great post I thought you should see if you're in the market for a 4k mirrorless for filmmaking.

Now I know there are plenty of folks who continue to tell me that nobody is buying DSLRs or Mirrorless for making movies, but at the same time, everywhere I go, I see people making videos of all kinds with a DSLR and a RØDE mic. The ‘revolution' may not be a revolution any more, but it certainly isn't dead!

So here's Noam with a bit of his blog post (and as usual, we think you should read the whole thing on his site – giving him respect for making time and maybe you'll find something else of value there! I know some sites will give you every bit of the story so you never would visit the ‘source' but I just don't think that's right).

I had been keeping my eye on the market for a while, and knew that ultimately my decision would come down to the Lumix GH5 and the Fuji X-T2. Both are excellent cameras, and while the GH5 is likely a better option for many filmmakers, based on my unique needs I chose to go with the X-T2.

The only other Fuji I have ever owned is the X100T, which is a gorgeous stills camera that severely lacks in the video department… With that in mind, I knew there was a possibility the X-T2 would let me down when it came to it’s video capabilities, but decided to take a gamble on the camera as I truly believe in Fuji’s color science and was impressed by the test footage I had seen online.

Having now shot with the camera quite extensively, I’m very happy with my choice.

While the X-T2 is not perfect in every way (no camera ever will be), there’s no question that it’s one of the best choices for low-budget narrative filmmakers looking to benefit from the DSLR form factor.
