What's a camera that takes good shots in low light as well as video, but is also pretty tough and can handle being beaten around while I hike and mountain bike? I don't want to have to deal with lensfaggotry either, just one lens that'll always be on the camera at most.
>>4029553I heard Sony's are good for thatBut you can also just buy a cheap manual focus 1.4 lens plus steady grip and boom instant decent to good low lightEven if you end up getting the perfect low light camera you still need to find some light thats just how it works[EXIF data available.

>>4029557So was I bamboozled by all that time I spent looking at DPReview videos trying to find one and they keep mentioning low light capability when in reality its just about set up?
>>4029558some cameras are better at low light than others for many different reasons like sensor size images prossesing buwawawa but if you pair them with a slow lens or you won't be able to take full advantage of it's low light capability Read about the exposure triangle don't be afraid of high iso noise if you keep all your settings balanced your image will come out clear Tldr google exposure triangle or how to shoot low light with x camera
>>4029553You ask for a lot. You want the perfect camera. You said you want 1 lens. I'm guessing you want a capable zoom. Micro 4/3 would be perfect if it weren't for the low light. People are going to say oh just get the 17mm f1.2 bro and you can shoot in the dark bro, which is a $1300 lens by the way. You only want to use 1 lens, so that means a capable zoom. Forget about it.First thing that comes to mind is the Lumix S5 with the 20-60 kit lens it comes with. It's all weather sealed and pannys are pretty tough. It's not the fastest lens, but the iso performance of full frame makes up for it. One small problem, the autofocus is okay for everything other than vlogging. You can make it work for that, just dont expect sony tier tracking. Its on sale right now for $1800.Sonys are pretty cool for low light video too, some like the A7Siii are several stops better than the S5 in super low light but Im guessing that's out of your budget. The A7III is about the same as the panny but the 28-70 kit lens is considerably narrower than the 20-60. Also, theyre not as rugged as an S5. In no way are they up to being tossed around in a backpack while biking but thats just my opinion. Theyre not as weather sealed either, just moisture resistant, so you cant shoot with them in the rain.

Depends on your definition of good. Only the latest most expensive full frame cameras are the best at low light and leave everything else behind. However if you want good enough you'll find plenty of modern cameras with the right lens are just fine
>>4029553Sony a7iv and whatever compact prime takes your fancy.
>>4029553If low light is the priority you can get an A7s series camera. Otherwise get literally any other mirrorless camera, then separately get a camera cage. Photo above is a GH5 with a Lock Circle Camera Cage.
>>4029553I would highly suggest Lock Circle camera cages. They are hybrid cages in that they are designed for videography and photography. Most camera cages are designed solely for video and won't allow you to properly grip the camera for photography. Lock Circle cages are expensive but imo they are worth every dollar as they are the best cages you can get.

>>4029665>Only the latest most expensive full frame cameras are the best at low lightlol don't you mean medium format? not going to capture much light with a tiny full frame sensor no matter how much money you waste on it
>>4029660It isn't weather sealed, I'm pretty worried about that.I want something I can really abuse
