I feel like it totally depends upon individual choices. And I wonder is camera does matter for a beginner?

If I stopped my life waiting for answers on d2jsp, I'd be one sad case of a human being.

To answer your question in this thread: 4k refers to resolution.

- The resolution of 4k is 3840 × 2160.
- The resolution of 1080p is 1920 x 1080.
- The resolution of 720p is 1280 x 720.

So when you ask if 4k can be displayed as 720p on YouTube, the answer is yes.

Not all cameras are made equal. Two cameras that shoot 4k won't necessarily record the same quality video. By quality, I mean color reproduction, dynamic range (ability to bring shadows up and highlights down so that the resulting picture appears to have better lighting), and other features.

I would recommend you look at the Canon 80D.

Or if you don't mind fixed focal length, GoPro is also useful.

May I ask why that camera is better than the Sony a6000 ?

Also, very dumb question but can you give me the run down on lenses? I'm going to get 18-50mm with the Sony a6000 if I get that. It should suffice for a long time. But what exactly does 18-50mm achieve and what else is good?

A6000 should be good.

What "18-50" refers to is the focal range. The lens will zoom from 18mm (wide) to 50mm (the longest end). It will be your go-to lens.

On an A6000, at about 22mm, you will have a similar field of view (what the picture looks like) to a cell phone camera. So 18mm is a bit wider than that. 50mm is zoomed in a little over twice that much, which isn't a lot more, but it's a good range.

If you want bokeh (blurred out backgrounds), you might want to get a prime lens. A prime lens shoots at a faster aperture (better in low light & can produce blurred out backgrounds), but it's a fixed focal length, so it doesn't zoom in or out.

second hand mark II

IV coming out

II/III prices gonna drop/already dropping

full frame has basic video fuction, u can look up specs

if doesnt come with a lens

just buy a dirt cheap 50mm 1.8 its basically free


if ur a beginner, just use ur cellphone, train ur eye, easy access/handle, simple apps for retouch, etc.

if u want to do it as a hobby do what i say, buy second hand mark ii

if u find more interest in it, look into lenses u can buy that can help improve urself, speedlite, strobes, tripods, etc etc, depending what your interest is.
