black magic pocket camera 4k... around 1400 use the rest of the money to solve some of its flaws... It has no flip out screen or in built stabilisation and the battery life is not that good. so... a few external battery's, a gimbal and a external monitor would be a smart move.

Or you could go with a GH5 or a GH5s.

I like the pocket cinema camera 4K, but you won't be taking delivery anytime soon. They are on back order from the factory, which is par for the course with blackmagic. Don't forget you will also need lenses, filters, and accessories. You could look into a used Ursa or Ursa Mini. Alternately, the GH5 is probably your best bang for the buck.
