Any Recommendations? Video, Wildlife, Low-light dusk, 400m+
I am more into wildlife in general, mostly larger animals. I also do more video than I do photos. Applying telescopes to video/photos for super long range without camera lenses that are unaffordable for the same magnification very much appeals to me. Basically, I am looking for a full setup that can record sharp video of a subject at 400 meters or so, in both daylight and the low light of dusk. Understandably lower light will have less image quality, but I just want something that handles it well relative to modern optics.
From what I understand, with some cameras it is possible to record the viewfinder even if they do not have video capability, as long as you have the right accessory equipment, whereas others have both traditional video recording and viewfinder recording capability.
I am also interested in a setup that does not require a great deal of knowledge to begin using effectively. I will learn over time, but if possible, I want a setup I do not have to constantly struggle with manual adjustment while learning to get decent photos/video at that range.
Currently all I own is a Sony a5000. Whether this would be an effective starting component I do not know.
Would anyone have any suggestions on a proper setup to get started?
