New to Sony - Looking for suggestions

Go to solution Solved by CarolineJensen,

Hey Universe members,

I'm a student in a photography program in Ontario, Canada, and I'm hoping to switch to Sony and start freelance photography while I study. There are a few local businesses and real estate agents that I would love to do commercial photography for.

Our program lets us borrow Canon cameras, and I have a Nikon D3200 that's about a decade old.

I'm looking to focus on photography, but I'd like the option to take some video. I am interested in something mirrorless and full-frame, but I am a bit stuck on the right camera to use getting started.

I keep eyeing the Alpha 7R V, but I was told it would be overkill.

I'd love any and all suggestions.

All the best,

@AndrewNeary Can I ask your budget for the new camera? If money is not an issue, and you want the best of both worlds, (photo/video) then I would have to suggest the A1. If you are working with a smaller budget, then the A7IV would be my suggestion. I am firm believer that there is no such thing as overkill, only over budget spending.
