Video footage, looking for friends and share experience

I know that DT is not selling video footage, but this is the only message board forum I respect in terms of good artist willing to help each other. So I will ask here.

I have experience in making video footage. From the first day here I asked if DT will ever sale video but the answer still not here.

I am an exclusive contributor on DT. Can I sell video and only video anywhere else?

My video camera need an upgrade, what kind of equipment you recommend for doing very good pictures but also very good video - at stock level, of course, not for Hollywood :-)

I am looking for people who can share their experience on selling video footage. We will not mention any competitors agencies here.

Thanks a lot, looking for friends.

Recommending a good NEX 5. For stills and video. Or Panasonic GH3. Or Canon along with magic lantern which lets you shooting RAW video.

There are many choices but the affordable one is NEX. I have NEX5R and i can tell you that I take better pictures than Nikon D7000, simply because i can see better where I focus (the sensor is the same).

With NEX you can mount through adapter any lens on this planet... and with Focus Peaking manual focus is a breeze!
Photography I use Nikon 105mm F2.8G, Nikon 35mm F1.8G, Nikon crop body...

There is a problem with Nikon... and that problem is the encoding and changing the aperture while in LiveView.

I wouldn't recommend to anyone entry level Nikons. You simply cannot see what you are focusing through ViewFinder. And LV is not usable, you are seeing a 640x480 jpg... when you zoom in it will become pixelated.

I have 16-50 PZ for walking around and 30 sigma for studio shots. Also some extension tubes... but yes, you can use all kind of lenses (minus m4/3 ones because of the vignette). But what's the point in having a 210grams camera and a 1kg lens?!

True, but very hard to change aperture while recording on small bodies, maybe on a very hard tripod to prevent shaken. I saw a video on dpreview made with nex 7, is shaken: video 4 from here http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sonynex7/24

I think this can be done, at this level, only with some kind of remote...

To be accepted, stock video footage must be perfect, no shake etc... like in photography... so, no intervention on buttons on such small cameras.
