Quick reasons why we got the G85
============================
4k video support at 30 fps - not 60 fps like the GH5, but 3 times cheaper than the GH5 and 200g lighter.
Unlimited recording - doesn’t overheat like Sony cameras.
Articulating screen - very useful for framing the shot.
Microphone jack - to be able to use external microphones to get good quality recordings.
Battery life - 4k non-stop recordings go for 1.5 hours on a single charge, unlike Sony cameras who tend to max out at 30 mins.
Image stabilization - not as good as a gimble, but very very good for hand held shots.
Weather sealed - can film in the rain unlike the G7.

Notes
=====
G7 is half the price and can do 4k video recording. It just lacks image stabilization, weather sealing and has a slightly narrower kit lens.
Sony a6500 has amazing out of the box autofocus, but note has poor battery lift, overheats and is twice as expensive.
GH5 is a beast that can do 4k 60fps, but note it’s 3 times more expensive and you’ll need a more expensive SD card to record on.
G80 (The European version) limits recording time to 30 minutes per session. G81 and G85 (International versions) don’t limit recording at all.

Sony FDR-3000 vs DJI Osmo Mobile | What’s Best for YouTube?

In this review we take the Sony FDR-3000R and DJI Osmo Mobile out for a London field test. Testing the cameras under various conditions to see how they cope primarily with image stabilization and secondarily for day to day vlogging and field reports. During the tests we also flip out the device audio with an external Rode VideoMicro.

Notes for the DJI Osmo Mobile
=========================
This was our first field test with the DJI Osmo Mobile. Since then we’ve got better at using the Osmo and its features such as run mode, slower panning and all the quirks with making sure you place the external microphone connection carefully to avoid crackling audio when the wires collide with your hand.

We paired the Osmo with a Samsung S7 and a Rode VideoMicro for the footage seen here.

Notes for the Sony FDR-X3000R
==========================
For some strange reason the camera was recording upside down so we had to flip the footage in post production. We recorded in 4K mode which meant that we had to use the fish eye lens. The remote was a pain to connect on the field, it worked ok indoors in the city but outside it wouldn’t connect. The battery bars fluctuated from 1 bars to 2 bars to 3 bars and back. The GPS also managed to never connect so no GPS meta data was included in the videos.

Additional Notes
==============
In the upcoming full review we’ll break down other features of using both setups, but a very important I’d like to mention is ease of use of getting the footage. With the DJI Osmo Mobile, as I was using my phone, I could simply hook into my current arrangement of automatically uploading the footage to my peronsal NAS drive, allowing me to instantly edit on my laptop. While the Sony required me to either eject the SD card or wire it in via USB, but more importantly, the naming convention on the Sony was barbaric with files being named C00001, C00002, C00003 and so on.
