Hi,

I'm a wildlife photographer for about 3 years, and decided to start video documentary.

I have a 10000€ budget for camera and acessories, but need help of experienced people for choosing the right gear...

For tripod and tripod head i'm thinking in using my GITZO 3530 and buy a manfrotto 509HD head.

Have a ZOOM H4n for sound record.

For the camera thinking in 3 options:

1- Panasonic HPX250, sony PMW150, or the new JVC GY-HM600, all have 22x or 23 x zoom and 422 50mbs and pana have 100mbs, at actual prices, with my budject and one of this cameras would be able to buy a dolly and crane, and some more acessories.

2- Blackmagic cinema camera, sigma 120-300mm f/2.8, 1.4x and 2x TC, 100mm macro and tokina 11-16mm, and maybe a panasonic GH3 as second body and few more lens, dolly and crane and some more acessories.

3- Sony NEX-FS700, more expensive option, but the 120 and 240 fps for wildlife are amazing. with this option, would have to use the 18-200mm lens of the kit, and a 100mm macro, and nothing more for now. A option is to stay with this one and waith for some incomes and buy some nice lens after, including a good tele (500mm) and other...

Based on your experience, what would be the best option? any other suggestions?

Thanks and regards.
Thanks
