As for sports and action shooters, the earlier A6000 may have been no slouch, but I’m genuinely excited by the new capabilities of the A6300. In my brief time with the camera it felt quicker and more confident at tracking subjects, and I’d be happy to sacrifice 3fps for the new live update in the viewfinder. If it performs as hoped in my tests I’ll definitely be upgrading. The final word is the price which, at $1000 for the body, is double that of the now heavily discounted A6000. This isn’t surprising for a new camera, but it illustrates how the A6000 continues to be such great value and it’s a model I can still recommend
Perhaps the most surprising thing is the addition of both S-Log2 and S-Log3 gammas to the camera. Something previously not seen at this level. So where does this camera sit? It has almost every feature that the a7S II and a7R II have, but at a much lower cost.
If you need the very fast (120fps) refresh of the new EVF, 4K video and the improved audio functions (whether using jack plug mic or the MFAccessory shoe mic choices) then it’s easy – it will cost you less to get these than any other comparable route. Even the RX10 MkII no longer looks so attractive.
I am working on a bunch of A-mount, compact camera and Zeiss lens rumors. But before that I want to thanks the sources who shared the correct GM and A6xxx rumors. Here is the list of the correct rumors:
1) The trusted sources saying the A6000 successor would look like the A6000 (correct).
2) The trusted sources said it would ship in March.
3) “Source 4” from that list just got promoted to trusted source. He shared the correct A63000 specs!
4) Sony G Master lens rumor was spot on!
5) 85mm G rumor also was correct. And the source who told me the lens would be trimmed for extreme good bokeh was right too.
6) 24-70mm f/2.8 leaked registrations (here and here) were also correct. And so the SR2 shipment rumor (source got also upgraded to trusted)
The bad rumors:
Sony told our sources the camera name would be A6100 but at the end it was A6300 (a source got the specs right but the name was wrong). And most SR1 and SR3 rumor were wrong (including the 30+ MP rumor)
The yet not announced “rumored” stuff:
1) The same source who correctly shared the A6100 info said HX cameras are coming. So I guess there will be one more announcement soon (maybe at Cp+ by end of February)
2) high End (A-mount?) camera: Is it coming at Cp+?
In summary: Stay tuned, as the sources who shared correct info on GM lenses and A6xxx camera hinted about a possible Sony announcement around (before or shortly after) the CP+ show!
Yesterday we reported about the new Kipon auto-focus adapter with interchangeable plug-in graduated ND filters. The adapter is now available for purchase at Adorama, Icas and soon it will be available oneBay too. In the meantime check out those new images:
Im considering picking up a second body.... and the a6300 or a6000 seems like a great choice, Fast af, high fps. A great compliment to what my a7ii lacks. What do you guys think? It would be nice to have the crop factor with my 70-200 as well to bump it to 300mm […]
I just noticed the fine print on the spec page: This camera is designed for optimal dust and moisture resistance, but is not waterproof or splashproof. For FE lenses only. Obviously that leaves us with some unanswered questions. "optimal dust and moisture resistance", is that the same as what we'd normally call […]
Hello. I leave for a 21 day Grand Canyon river trip in 2 weeks. I shoot with the A7RII. I've purchased the largest battery pack I can find to help with recharging these (I have 7!) batteries that don't last for very long, let alone 21 days! I might need to purchase more... I've […]
Does anybody know if it's possible (and easy) to use bluetooth headphones with my A7S mkii? I have the neat little XLR KM2, and would love to ditch the umbilical connection with headphones cable. I'm worried about lunging forward and sending my camera toppling, or putting wear on the connection jack. Has anybody tried […]
Hi everybody, I'd like to know if it's possible to make live streaming with sony a7sII. I'm asked to film a conference and my client would like to send the signal (video and sound) on his youtube channel, but I never did that. Can someone help me, please? Thank you very much.
