Don't have very good equipment at the moment, but looking to upgrade to this in a couple months.

Fujifilm X-T2. Well, either this or a Sony a6300.

Have a look at Sony RX 10 mark III. We have Mark II version and it looks like it's the best camera for this money. Compared to this one 6300 will give you some extreme macro possibilities and very wide angle provided you have proper lens for extra money. But you'll unlikely have 600 mm and surely won't have super slow motion features.

Hi Forrest - I basically have the same setup as you minus a few dslr's and gimbal.
Do you use the ronin gimbal with the fs700? I'm looking to get one but not sure if the camera is too heavy or long? Where do you place the Odyssey? On the gimbal handles?

I have a motorized slider with a motorized pan and tilt head. Works great with the Fs700 especially in slow motion. I don't use it half as much as I should though as I do very little studio shots and find recording in slow mo perfect for stable hand camera sliding movements.

- back to the question I'd suggest purchasing a proper video camera (not dslr) and invest in a great zoom lens but also having some primes. Also get a video cam with inbuilt ND filters like the fs700. It's so good to have it with a flick of a switch. Massive time saver and perfect for outdoor filming.

I use the Sony FS700 with the Ronin (original one). I mount the Odyssey on the handle-bar. With the sony 18-200mm lens that came with the camera, it's a little bit too long/front heavy on the Ronin, so I used double sided tape to mount a couple of lead fishing weights to the back of the camera. That allows it to be balanced correctly.
