I'm in the process of building an online food channel for YouTube. I want to have the best cinematic quality. I have noticed with many YouTube channels that they have a tinny, unprofessional look. I want to do everything I can to avoid this but I am very new to filmography. I am not sure whether a mirrorless camera can provide me with the quality and cinematic look that I want. However, cinema cameras are exorbitantly expensive. I figured my budget for the primary camera is 2000 U.S. dollars and I plan on having two other secondary cameras for overhead shots and one on a moving tripod. However the primary camera should be the best quality that I can afford in the two at the most $3000 range. Any advice?


No longer a newbie, moving up!

Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
My complaint with Youtubers isn't video quality, it is sound quality. Some are so bad as to not be understandable. Others so bad it is a struggle to understand most words. I would be more concerned with the mike and echo removing in the recording room.
