Already new A6000 test roundup (with video quality surprise)


Sony Alpha A6000 sample movie: low light handheld pan 1600 ISO from Gordon Laing on Vimeo.

CameraLabs is testing the A6000 and writes and posted a couple of image samples and videos. About the video you see on top of this post he writes:

I was particularly impressed by the way the AF system smoothly adjusted between the guitars near the end of the clip. Meanwhile there’s little to no noise to speak of, just nice clean footage with lots of detail. I would however mention that very slight focus breathing when you pause for more than a couple of seconds on a subject.

EosHD just got the A6000 and got a positive suprirse when reviewing the video qulaity of the camera:

The Sony A6000 is the best Sony consumer camera yet for video. A Nikon D5300 in a mirrorless body, with far more features, the image quality is closer to the FS700 in 1080p than to a NEX 7 or A5000. The pristine sharp EVF, a magnified focus assist which can be activated whilst recording (rare!), peaking, zebra, 16:9 screen and of course the mirrorless form factor. This is arguably the best current ‘cheap’ camera for video, de-throning the GH2 and GH3. At just $650 it is an absolute bargain.

And here are some SAR readers tests:

Lachlan: “I posted up a video I shot with my new a6000 + SELP18105G lens. It’s just a simple room tour video but so far over the few days I’ve had the camera I’ve been super impressed by the autofocus system.

Robert:ich hab das heutige schöne Wetter genutzt, um den AF der neuen A6000 zu Test. Mit dem Sel50 bei offener Blende habe ich einige fantastische Downhill Bilder schießen können:

Michael:Wll, you shouldn’t miss out on this one. Now, I don’t know why this german guy used crazy low iso and not that high shutterspeeds, but at least it gives an impression on what all are waiting to see: how well does the a6000 in tracking fast moving objects. So, while test (a great deal of missed shots in my opinion) is – still – not conclusive, at least the guy is very happy – comparing with way more expensive stuff as Canon 5d mark 3 and the likes – and he’s very happy with the snappy 11 pics. shutterrate.
