This feels like a drumroll moment... 'drrrrrrrr'
"And the winner is..."
This is such a big question that most people skirt around but I like to give it straight. Now I can't categorically say this is the best camera but in my experience and from my research this is the camera that I am hand on heart recommending, and would do so to my parents if they asked me for my opinion.
The Panasonic Lumix G7.
Now although I've been doing all my filming with a G80/85, I got hold of the G7 (the older model) and as you can see in this post I put them side by side and there seriously was no difference for what I'm doing and teaching here. Therefore while you can still get the older model I would bag a G7 and spend the difference on the 20mm lens I recommend for it.

Haha, well done for tracking with me. Let me know what you think. Post any questions in our Facebook group, 'Pro Video Hackers' and if you buy one or the other you definitely have to take a photo of you with it and post it in the group, that would be really encouraging to me!
Catch you in another post soon :-)
