I’ve been loving my Sony a6000 but the one thing I missed after switching from my Canon gear is the full frame sensor. Before heading off to the Bahamas I decided to add the a7ii to my camera kit and I’m not disappointed. I knew it would be a better camera but the 5-axis gimbal was the unexpected major bonus. I’ve always purchased stabilized lenses but adding another layer of stabilization inside the camera makes my footage even smoother.
I chose the a7ii and NOT the a7rii simply based on price. Since we’re not filming professionally and we’re not blowing up photographic prints the savings seemed worth the compromises. If you’re on a budget like us go for the a7ii, but if you have some cash burning a hole in your pocket buy the a7rii as I’m sure it’s worth it.
I usually buy cameras from B&H, but I always check pricing on Amazon too:
