We are often asked this loaded question. Being hard core pros, we would like to suggest an Arri 435. Or an Arri Alexa LF. Unfortunately when someone asks this question, what they mostly mean is 'I want an affordable light weight camera that will shoot cool video'.. That makes the question clearer. What should be look for in a camera that shoots cool video. Do you want to shoot fiction or non-fiction. If non-fiction, then we mostly suggest a camcorder. Why? Compact form factor with built in good lens zoom range, autofocus (very very important for documentary and sports), built in excellent sound recording, robust quality etc. So here is a list of great camcorders we recommend.
File Format MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 Variable (averaged) bit rate File Size Recording Sizes: 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), 1280 x 720 and 640 x 480 Frame Rates [1920 x 1080]: 30 fps / 25 fps / 24 fps [1280 x 720]: 60 fps / 50 fps [640 x 480]: 30 fps / 25 fps Continuous Shooting Time Based on 8GB Card: [1920 x 1080] 30 fps ALL-I: 11 min.

The shutter speed (signal accumulation time) is limited to 1/4000 sec. at the maximum and to 1/30 sec. at the minimum for 24/25/30 fps or 1/60 sec. or higher for 50/60 fps. Exposure Compensation Up to ±3 stops in 1/3-stop increments * For movies, even if exposure compensation has been set beyond ±3 stops, exposure compensation up to only ±3 stops will be applied. * For still photos, exposure compensation up to ±5 stops can be applied.
