Best Affordable 4k 60p (60fps) Cameras

1) GoPro Hero 6 and GoPro Hero 8 (unreleased) - for the $300 dollar price point, the hero really is a hero and can't be beat. Shooting at a full 60 frames per second in 4k resolution, it is the most affordable, best quality camera on the market today. The new gopro 8 is supposed to be capable of shooting in 4k at a full 120fps, that is truly revolutionary for a camera of its size. The Hero 7 wasn't included on this list because of the bad reviews. 12 megapixels is sort of the middle ground, surprisingly, this camera has 4 more megapixels for 900$ less than the blackmagic, it doesn't mean the aperture is as large, but the GoPro is definitely the winner for bang for your buck. It is important to select the right model of gopro as different colored models have different specifications, for example the hero 4 silver shoots in half the amount of frames as the hero 4 black.

2) Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K - this camera is the most affordable "high end" video camera. This camera has a lower (8 megapixel) image sensor that is designed to work best for shooting videos, not photos. So if you're looking for a camera that can do both, skip this one. The quality is exceptional, and it is quite portable. The only downside to this camera is the reported low battery life.

3) Panasonic GH5 - the GH5 is much more than just a video camera, it also takes beautiful pictures too. Panasonic's line up of DSLR cameras have exceptional picture quality, a mass of filters, and many other features to help you tweak your shot/video. 20 megapixels is plenty for images.

4) Fujifilm X-T3 - although not the most popular camera brand, fujifilm has been putting their foot in the door lately. All while staying true to classic old style cameras. Like the GH5, this is not only a video camera, it can also take fantastic pictures. 26.6 megapixels

5) Panasonic Lumix S1 - this camera made the list simply because it is another camera that is capable of shooting 4k. The fuljifilm can do more for less money but some people prefer certain brands over others. The Lumix offers a maximum of 22 megapixels.
