I have a Pentax K5 with some nice lenses that I happily use for still images.

I tried to take some clips with it but I'm very disappointed with the muddy looking (excessive compression) and the rolling shutter jelly effect when panning, but looking for an upgrade in the Pentax family doesn't look so promising. Even the K3 and new K70 seem to be affected by the same problems.

I was thinking of taking another camery body with better video performance and use the lenses I own with an adapter.

What could be a good budget/Video quality compromise for a 1080/60p camera?
Micro 4/3 or something else?

I wouldn't want to spend much ( i.e. Panasonic GH5/GH4) and I feel the need for slow motion more than UHD.


Thank you for any advice

I haven't messed with Pentax dslr video much, and from what I hear they are definitely a bit behind the times, but it might be possible to get good results with different settings - maybe scour pentax forums for video settings to solve or at least lessen your problems.

At least Pentax seems to be a universal lens donor if you want to stick them on other bodies.

i use pentax , together with fuji x100 and ricoh gr. i still use the k5 , with the 645d and k1 right now.
pentax is not for video , but the k5 on tripod and with a good lens produce good video quality. the is is also very effective
the gh4 sound veery good especially i have an adapter from novoflex i can use the pentax lenses...i have read another solution is the samsung nx500 or nx1....both are tremendous value and have adapter.
other solution for pure video are sony a7 with adapter, even the old a72 can be a great tool for video only and still u can use adapter.
pentax k1 is the best camera out there for travel and landscape , it has also good video image but it has minor video feature
