    Sony a6500 limited record time

    You got me, everything pales compared to the NX1. I know this because I read it in every new camera thread, despite the fact it's dead, there are few good lenses for it, noise above 1600 is awful, stills aren't anything special, you have to deal with overly aggressive NR, no log profiles and so on. I had one, limited lenses (most are average to mediocre) and noise killed it for me. I'm obviously not alone since it was a bomb that forced Samsung to pull the plug. Endless camera threads with the NX1 virtues and speculation to what the next FW update or NX2 would have been is so played, I'm checking out of here. Enjoy your camera. Peace out.

    Mine was out in the sun, I could have kept recording if I wanted to, but it was really pointless. I shot a friends wedding in Tucson AZ a couple weeks ago without issue too. I have a more recent copy, not sure if there were any tweaks, but my camera performs much better than the Newsshooter video. At this point its academic for me as I'm moving to the a6500 anyway. I'll buy a NX1 when it gets IBIS and a decent lens selection. DIS creates too many artifacts for me and seems to amplify rolling shutter. Enjoy your camera.

    Lavalier Microphone for Interview

    How's the quality with the Bluetooth mics? I'm going to be doing some traveling, but it would be nice to grab some sound from people I meet when shooting. This is much smaller than my G3 setup. Thanks.

    Sony RX100 V - official topic

    The resolutions are listed on Sonys website in the specs, 240fps is just shy of actual HD, all higher framerates drop in resolution. So they're definitely up scaled.

    I'm still waiting for the NX1 IBIS hack, or a fast prime wider than 85mm, or a parfocal cine zoom with stepless iris and no focus shift... Your trolling is still sad.

    Your exact words, "ha ha still the old chips getting hot" Maybe it's a language barrier, but ha ha is amusement here.

    I never shoot 30 minute takes, and I shut the camera off constantly - overheating has never been an issue for me. I plopped my camera on a tripod in my backyard, it was 88 F outside, it ran until it hit the time limit with no temp warning. Body was warm, but my a7rII gets hotter if I do the same thing. Here's the camera just before it reset at the time limit. If the a6500 is better, sweet, it'll never be an issue for me.

    Google Pixel XL Camera Sample 4K - The Best Yet?

    I'm sure we'll see actual samples soon enough.

    Well the internet says the a6300 overheats after just a few minutes, WTF is up here? Sarcasm. I have 1.10 and my a6300 hasn't overheated yet. I live in Florida, its hot as hell here, I even shot a wedding in Tucson AZ, where its even hotter. Zero overheating. But I didn't have any issues with the a7rII either, I shut my camera off between just about every take to preserve batteries. That's always worked for me, even with the a5100 and the Nex7 which overheated more than any E-mount body I've owned. Why do you find amusement with someone potentially having problems with their gear? That's the sad trolling part. So sad.

    Google Pixel XL Camera Sample 4K - The Best Yet?

    Not joking, I went looking for the video after it disappeared. I didn't see what the OP posted, but this one has come up as the Cinematic Pixel fake, and the poster supposedly did the same thing with the iPhone for the clickbait. https://9to5google.com/2016/10/09/check-out-this-stunning-4k-footage-taken-with-the-pixel-xl-video/

    Why do you care? Still playing the pathetic NX1 troll eh? So sad... This is great news, the crazy buffer, IBIS and less overheating, I'm buying two and dumping my a7rII.

    It's because that video is a fake, it's stolen from someone else and was actually shot on a GH4.

    GFILM: An easily graded Flat Profile for Sony Cameras

    Those shots look great, especially the first one. I've read up on the Knee and still can't see what changes do to the footage, so I never mess with it. Any chance you can expand on what your change achieved compared to leaving it on auto? Will try this on the a7rII, a6300 and soon the a6500. Thanks!

    Sony RX100 V - official topic

    Seems like that's the case. I've been waiting for PADF to make its way to the small 1" cameras and I was looking forward to the 18-50mm version of the DL. The RX1005 looks good, but I'm going to try and hold off for the DL's and the new Panasonic LX10 to be released first. The, slog, the extended 240fps and the 24fps stills bursts really push the new RX to the top of the 1"class.
