That's a good starter kit if on a budget.

If you can afford a bit more R50 has more focusing points/fold out screen.  these 2 kits (extra tele lens vs mic/tripod)

Assuming you're a beginner in both photography and videography, what will be helpful is knowing a few things:

  1. What is your overall budget?
  2. Do you wish to have a single item capable of capturing both photos and video, or would you prefer dedicated equipment for each?
  3. Do you have an idea of the types of photos you want to capture? Portraits? Landscapes? Sports? Other?
  4. Same for videos.  Would they be for blogs, events, weddings, other?

Lighting: Profoto Lights & Modifiers

To answer your questions:

I can spend anywhere from 3,000 to 6,500 and I'm pretty serious about it.

Well, I can choose the best camera that has high resolutions to capture both video and photographs.

I like to capture mostly Snowboarding and action sports.

Given you want a "hybrid" (both video a stills), I would give the EOS R5 C, R5, and R6 mark II a hard look, in that order. Since I am not a videographer, I'll leave the lens recommendations to those that at least do a lot of video. I do shoot video with the EOS R5, R6, and R6 II, but with my current stock of RF L lenses, and I do find them to be quite good, but am by no means a video guru. I am primarily a wildlife stills shooter that takes videos when the urge strikes me 😉

FWIW, some of my favorite YouTube reviews and videos are shot with the R5. And I'll add that the EOS R5 C is NETFLIX approved.
