Greetings Joel and all. What a blessing discovering this community has been; thanks for all you do.
As with a lot of churches, we are starting to take live streaming more seriously, especially after COVID. We recently got a BMPCC 4K, paired with an ATEM Television Studio HD, and are starting to live stream our services.
We got are currently using a Lumix G 35-100mm f2.8 lens, which gets us just about enough of a close up shot from where our camera sits from the stage (about 50ft). We are having to zoom pretty much to 100mm though, which makes it very difficult to pan, as the slightest movement is exaggerated and introduces left to right jitter (we use a Manfrotto fluid head and tripod from a few years ago which worked just fine with our previous camcorders). We have tried with both OIS on the lens turned on and off, and get about same results.
Is there anything we're doing wrong? Should we be looking at other lenses? We got the 35-100mm lens particularly because of its fixed f2.8 aperture and built in OIS. Or should we revert to camcorders for our use case? I have taken a look at the Canon XA55, and a bit tempted.
