You're in for a world of pain if you want a 'theatre quality' short with that level of knowledge.
You can buy all the gear you want, but having slightly worse gear and knowing how to use it will always triumph.
Also, please do not use your lens' maximum aperture all the fucking time for a 'film look'.
Having said this though, do go for a gh4, friend :)
>a bit more
the GH4 costs about 1200$ + the 18-35mm F1.8 + Metabones adapter
buy a used 550d/T3I + 18-70mm and spend the rest on lighting and a mic
Nikon D600 + 50mm fag reporting in, not really /fa/ but I have my Olympus for that
and full frame sensor for penis points
also the Ricoh GR is pretty sleek, gonna buy one soon for when I don't want to take the D600 with me
it is, he could also go for the LX100, shoots 4k, impressive sharpness and reasonably good all round camera
I am between this and the Ricoh desu but the Ricoh has that look

Best place to get camera advice? (For a newbie)? I've wanted to get into photography for some years now but didn't have the chance to buy a camera. I reckon getting a DSLR is probably the best option since its the best of both but I'm unsure what would be best for a beginner but not to expensive. Heard stuff Ile 600d 500d or something along there was decent but unsure what will be good to start on while giving high-best quality. Not willing to spend £1k+ since I'm not in that position yet.
I know this is shunned upon here but
/r/photography has some good threads on it. Also not sure what kind of photography you're into but if it's studio photography/ fashion photography check out the Inverse Square Law of Light. Slimane masters that technique and his set ups are so simple in terms of lighting but executed to perfection
Take it slow, lurk on /p/ and check the gear threads for info. Since DSLR's are investments, you definitely don't want to make any regretful purchases so see what you like first and go from there.
Don't get a 4K camera unless you have the hard drive and SD card space to deal with it. Considering your level of knowledge I would get a t3i and spend more money on a nice lens. Since you want that "film look" go for a nice prime with a low f stop then spend the rest of your money on lights and audio. I don't know what you're planning on shooting so just go look this up on some other website that isn't fashion related.
It's boring, just popular.
The k-3 is interesting but as all dslr aesthetically not that pleasing.
No hasselblad 500cm yet? I'm disappoint.
Konica Big Mini
I have the one one the left, haven't used it enough.
Totally forgot about that place. Indeed /p/ as well.
Got one of these, that little S on the corner annoys the FUCK out of me though
heres the shit i actually use, ive got some others stuff but it just sits in a drawer
shot this with my black x100s btw
rest my case
if you dont know jack shit about photography practic with a point and shoot until you et a grasp of it and start getting tired of how limiting are point and shoots, then buy a dslr that fits your photography style
i still use my old point and shoot because it fits in my jacket pockets and it still takes dece pics like pic related, DSLRS are more complex than point and shoots and for newbies its sometimes overwhelming and it drives them off from the hobby, checking out /p/ after getting the basics is a pretty good idea
TL;DR practice with what you have and then move on
cameras are tools
u buy the tool u need m8
that being said, a7r2 is the most effay camera by far
I still have this thingi lying around.
Someday i will use it. i swear.
mainly use this, have a dslr too but this looks slick and is very portable
It was really cold and I was taking photos at sunrise. Must acquire /fa/ gloves.
Do you plebs even medium format; the most effay of formats?
If you're not shooting low light, anything that shoots 25fps at 1080p is a good camera already.
Spend your money on lenses, good microphones and camera stabilizers. Try to buy an used full frame dslr.
