I'm looking to purchase another camera. I primarily use the Osmo+, but it's horrible in low-light, and inconvenient for tripods. Do you guys use another camera to shoot? If so, which one do you recommend? I'm looking to spend less than $1,000. Thank you!

I have a panasonic hc x900 videocamera for when I'm shooting moving subjects and want some zoom range.
And most video I shoot with my dslr. Not the most convenient, but I love the look.

A SONY 6300 is the typical go to for under $1000 cameras. The difficult thing is once you spend $1000 on a camera you have to spend another $1000 on a stabilizer like the Zhiyun 2 or Ronin.

Isn't zhiyun a couple hundred? Also, really love the a6300! but heard it overheats a lot. Saw this is numerous reviews, how was your experience with it?

Any advantage of going with prime lens over zoom lens?

I started using primes when I switched to Full Frame. First 6 months I just had the 50mm
I really fell in love with this relaxed way of shooting.
Thinking about what shot you want and put on the right lens to make it.
I come home with about 1/2 of the amount of pictures I shot with my zoom lens. And they usually are
better.
I even sold my 24-120 some months ago because it never left home anymore.
Only thing I miss is the VR when filming. Because that helps getting rid of the micro jitter.

But I wont go back to zoom lenses. Maybe only a 80-200 one day.
These primes give me  better price - quality and much better low light performance.

Yea the sony a6300 has been heard to have some over heating issues, yet with a small rig cage , the heat will be dissapate and overheatingis reduced.
