Hey Andrew, I appreciate the response, and I'm glad you like the content Chris and I put out. We look forward your feedback on anything we produce, and I've gained a lot of useful information and

Hey Jordan No way! It kills me to have a misunderstanding like this I am an avid follower of your videos at The Camera Store, I abs

The lack of touch screen is unforgiveable.  For all the people that moan that pros don't need a touch screen in models like the A7 and RX series, seeing Dan Chung's News Shooter touch screen demo clea

terrible rolling shutter. very bad. slow mo 1080 looks very bad also. 
looks like it will no be the so expected decent hybrid for some. Don't care so much about improvements on AF over a6300, as I wont be buying expensive sony lenses. And it would be good to have good 1080p - not always with time to process 4k, and can't afford another computer just for 4k yet. Also from the footage looks like this will be terrible hand held.

Geez. It's so badly shot. If you're going to judge the camera, judge it from something decent for heaven's sake.

I hardly think the rolling shutter will be any worse than the 1D C, A7S II, NX1, GH4 or many other 4K cameras, many of them much more expensive than $999

from max : Yup. If it's one clip your talking about in particular or the most it was shot with 85mm 1.4 Gmaster which is equivalent to about 130mm so hand holding that focal length without optical stabilization is not good smile emoticon I shouldn't have used the clip but was in too much of a rush to chage it.

Copied from video description: This is a rushed video made for a competition. Video could be no longer than 2 min and I finished it 3min before the turn in cutoff. No color grading or correction done, straight out of camera. And a lot of thing I would change if given just 15 more min, but still want to share with you. All this video was shot with fully auto focus with a few shots using the focus hold to keep the focus on a subject like the bars. The footage of the wakeboarding was mainly shot on a 70-200 F4 at 200mm F4 (so 300mm with the a6300) and the shutter was cranked way too high as we wern't provided ND. Most if not all were standard picture profile (off) maybe 1 or 2 Cine 2 but not sure. Overall very impressed with the video AF tracking. Even though it doesn't look like the subject is far, they are actually really far and coming a far distance to me. I'll have a separate video testing the autofucus this was just a quick video for the competition. Didn't have access to timelapse app for this camera and it would not install for those who had it, so time-lapse was just 4kvideo sped up.

I tried to grade a footage of the a6300 found on Vimeo, just to play.
For a test I used this video by Gordon Laing, shot in 4k UHD @ 24p mode at 800 ISO with Picture Profile 8 (S-Log 3).

Below the ungraded and graded frames.

Banding and macroblocking in sky on the graded frame.
This appears when I converted S-Log 3 to LC709 using DaVinci Resolve included LUT.

Is it just me or 1080p looks rather soft? I am comparing it with down scaled 4K version on HD monitor. I think Samsung is doing a much better job producing 1080p with minimal rolling shutter and fairly decent sharpness(surely it's not as sharp as 4K version, but difference is not as dramatic).

1080p:

Guys there is a fact that when you upload a 4K footage on Youtube or Vimeo, when you look at it, it looks nicer, and sharper than if you downscaled yourself before uploading on 1080p on youtube or vimeo...

Compressors on these platforms don't do the same work if your upload is 4K or 1080p... This is like that !!!! And that's the Wayyyy it is !!!!! (for the 80s lovers !!!! lol)

Indeed, looks like rolling shutter, bad.

It isn't present in any of the other footage, so probably the IS briefly lost it's mind at that particular point.

Keep in mind that the NX1 shoots HD at 80 mbps using a more efficient codec, so it will probably hold detail better.

In Max´ video A6300 has obviously higher resolution than G7, also details in the shadows instead of mud.

Regarding the shadow detail it looks like a codec issue of the G7 with noise reduction dialed up too much in the profile.

 

Could definitely be a picture profile/settings thing. I'm sure, with tweaking, we could coax a little more resolution and shadow detail out of the G7. However, while the Panasonic has more blocked up shadows, it also has a clear advantage in the highlights. Not only is there more latitude, but it doesn't show any of the hue shifts, bright color ringing, or hard clipping I see in the A6300. Check out the underwater lights in the second example scene. Horrendous performance by the Sony. The Panasonic has much nicer color overall too, struggling less to render the mixed sources naturally. 

With used G7 prices dropping to around $400, I'm struggling to think of reasons not to buy it. No LOG profile I guess, but those things cause more problems than they solve in 8-bit cameras. Image looks acceptable at 6400 and rather good at 3200. 

As to people bashing it for stills...you're full of shit. I'm sorry, but even measurebaters can look at DXO and see that raw performance is less than a stop away from APS-C. There is so much amazing work being shot on M4/3 that no one can claim the camera is their limitation to getting good results. Panasonic's DFD autofocus has also been shown to be faster and more accurate than any other current mirrorless. Time will tell on the A6300, but "it doesn't have PDAF points" is an asinine argument. The last thing to look at are lenses. Last time I checked, the Sony APS-C stable was pretty pitiful. There's like...2 or 3 Zeiss lenses that are pretty cool I guess? Micro Four Thirds, on the other hand, has a gigantic selection of both AF and MF glass, almost all of which are stellar pieces of glass. 

As someone who's shot and edited a couple dozen commercial and portrait shoots with a GH3 and A6000 side by side, there's basically nothing in it. The Sony is higher res, but the M4/3 glass has the edge. The Panny has lower DR/higher noise, but the Sony's 11+7 bit compression makes it a wash. The Sony is smaller and lighter, the Panasonic much better built and better-handling. Neither have great color on Adobe defaults, and benefit greatly from profiling in ACR. The GH3 battery life is enormously better, the A6000 has almost double the burst rate. 

I would never argue that Micro Four Thirds is the best stills platform available, but I do believe it represents the best mix of compromises for most photographers. The system's image quality today is where APS-C was a couple years ago, and I don't recall many people complaining then. In a few more years, it'll be where class-leading APS-C is now. And so on and so on. So as technology marches on and sensors get better and better, I'd rather have the smaller size, better glass, and stronger features of a M4/3 body than a bump in performance less than 1% of shooters would even notice, let alone need.

Some samples to ponder:
