I am looking to start shooting films, with a preference for older 70s and 80s art film. I've noticed a lot of people recommending either the Lumix GH4 or the Black Box in my price range (anywhere below 2000 dollars). I want the best quality film-like camera on the market, so I can get a feel while I practice before moving towards arri studio or even older 35mm 35 2-BL. Are there any other camera's that are better than a GH4 or similar? What interests me about the GH4 (so I've heard) is that taking the 4k video compresses down into a more detailed 1080 image. It also is 1/4 film SLR, and should work with most lenses out there. Last of all, what would be the most film-like lens for nature and portraits. Should I be looking for either prime or anamorphic lenses, and if so, which ones?
