I am looking to upgrade from my Canon T3i, I was wondering if you could give me your opinion of what camera you would choose in my situation. I use my camera mostly for filming hunts, so I need something that I can focus easily through brush onto an animal. So manual focus and auto focus are used about 50/50 and are both very important. With the T3i I didnt have the autofocus feature and im looking to get back into something with that option. Cameras ive been interested in are the Panasonic GH4, Sony a6300, and some of the sony a7 series cameras. Also, I would like to have that super slow motion effect with 120 fps, which I know the GH4 doesnt have. I was wondering if you have any other cameras in mind or could give me your opionon on some of these cameras. Thank you

Also, if I go with the a6300 do i need an adaptor for a 24-240 lens, can I get an external battery pack? and do they make LANC remotes for them?

I haven't tested any of these. I think Panasonic are nicer to use than Sony in general though. Not sure about the A6300 questions, you'd need to check with Sony.
