Best Cameras – under $2,000

The sub $2,000 category is mostly populated with mirrorless cameras as well as some so-called bridge cameras. These hybrids meet the needs of both photographers and filmmakers.

As a result, these cameras are not true cinematic beasts, but versatile tools for filmmakers on a budget. You don’t need three one-trick pony devices to get the job done, just one jack-of-all-trades. Of course there are better cameras out there, but in this price range you can already find good hybrid cameras and get a decent tool for your money.

However, please keep in mind that you will most likely need more than just the body, so if $2,000 is your upper limit, this category is not for you.
