Hunting for the Perfect Camera

OK, so an interesting turn of events regarding the ‪#‎CameraHunt‬
I MUST decide by tomorrow which camera to get for my videos.
I wanted to first buy a ‪#‎Canon‬ 700D, used. Then a ‪#‎Nikon‬ D3200 (it actually shoots better video and is a LOT lighter and smaller — search YouTube for indepth comparison between the two).

But now I have shifted to buying a GoPro Hero4 Black. Shoots 1080p and even 4K. One of the reason I didnt consider a GoPro was because I needed to shoot a “business-like” video once a week… and I thought that the GoPro couldn’t handle it. But research shows that GoPro Hero4 Black produces great results, very polished. No depth of field, no bokeh etc, sure… but for a guy like me, a GoPro type action cam makes most sense. I know that the GoPro would be my “second” camera anyways, and I didn’t consider it seriously enough because I hadn’t seen the latest Hero4. (Thank you Kamil for the heads up on that).

But now, the ‪#‎Sony‬ Actioncam 4k is beating the ‪#‎GoPro‬ on most indept review sites. The GoPro fan boys (almost like Apple fanboys — arrgghhh!!) can be seen in the comments. But the Sony seems a better option for my adventures, interviews, vlogs and training videos because

  1. it is Sony,
  2. it is a bit cheaper and
  3. there are some manufacturing defects in GoPro that keep coming up on YouTube (search for GoPro Hero4 problems to see what I mean).

So now, I am looking for a Sony Actioncam FDRX1000-V 4K and no one is selling that in Pakistan!! Cant find a single site selling it online!!

Nisbat road here I come!? Perhaps.
“I am confused” doesn’t even come close to defining it. But I am praying, istakhara even… and am not worried. InshAllah, by tomorrow, I must decide.

Sony Actioncam 4k or GoPro Hero4 Black? Will people who sell them here offer some sort of warranty if things go wrong?
