Camera Upgrade

Hi everyone!

Currently working as a staff photographer for a smaller newspaper and shooting with a Canon EOS Rebel T5. I've had this camera for a while, and I'm looking to upgrade. It's important to note that I am also an aspiring filmmaker on the side, so good video is a must. The ultimate dream is to find a camera that can shoot solid photo and video, that also has an XLR port for a boom mic. I'm currently saving up money but would love to keep it under $2000. Is this possible? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

A Sony A7, A7ii, or A6500, with the K2M XLR adapter, would do the trick, and come in right about on budget before lenses. If you're invested in lots of Canon glass, a Metabones adapter is key. This is the only still-adjusting-to-not-being-the-center-of-attention based system with a native XLR adapter available.

A GH5 will take good images and video, but there's no XLR adapter for it.

Gh5 has xlr audio adaptor. Low noise audio.

This is the one for GH5 and works well too.

Oh cool, I wasn't aware of that. Good to know!
