    Trying to figure out which camera setup to go with. I previously shot with a GoPro so regardless all of these will be better :). Any opinions on which camera to go with? I want to primarily focus on shooting stills but still have the option to shoot a very high quality video.

    Tough decision, one has to consider the following:

    1. Stills: for macro/"flat port use" obviously the Alpha full frame cameras are the best. Wide angle is a mixed bag, because the larger sensor you opt for, the larger dome you need.
    2. Video: you have to look for 4k and full sensor readout, this you can find in the RX100 and the new A7s/rII.

    Wery interesting view, I am more for wide angle than macro, and WA is just a pain with chasing the bigger and bigger superdomes, while stopping
    down to f11-f16 (practically the same level of resolution and light amount as an rx100 at f5.6). Until we don't see
    decent wide converters for full-frame, I see little reason to stick to large sensors.
