Is there any chance I can get some advice? I've agreed to do a short documentary style video for my football club, I know what i'm doing in terms of production, editing and shot selection, however I need to buy a camera, and in terms of what i'm looking for in terms of video camera, I haven't got a damn clue. So I was just wonder what people would suggest.

I saw the below recomended online, and people at work think its decent, but i'm not sure:

What's your budget? Are the club willing to help out with it? I'd consider renting your equipment if it's just a one-off video. That'll allow you to get some of the best gear without spending thousands.

The Sony A7III is one of the best for recording video out there without using a huge director style camera. Mirrorless, full frame, beautiful quality. It's capable of 4k at lower fps settings, whilst also being capable of 120fps slow-mo. It may be worth looking at a couple of lenses although you can probably get away with the one if you choose the right range of focal length depending on what you will be mainly capturing.  A glidecam would also add a pro edge to your end product (a handheld bit of equipment that allows you to move around with your camera whilst keeping your shots steady and smooth).
