Sony a6300 4k

Well if you just delay each row of pixel by the time it takes for it to read, does that not fix every situation? I might be confused.

You can do that in premiere, but using the pixel analysis method gives better results - it's basically because the movement of the camera or object in the frame is not necessarily constant throughout the readout, and remember, the data has to be reconstructed otherwise your video will end up being rhomboid? shaped, and you can't grab information from other frames as the time difference is minute.

Ideally you could just calibrate the viewers output device to write the information at the same speed in reverse, but tv's and monitors etc can't and will never be able to do that, so, we have to correct.

ha its expected when Sony's latest mantra is to make everything as small as possible LOL

No, it is not. It was fixed on the a7 series and lots of reports claimed that it was fixed with a6300. I really hope these guys just had the LCD closed against the camera of something like that.

the fact that its becoming common understanding that if you shoot with a sony with the lcd in its normal position it can overheat is alarming enough. No other camera made did LCD position contribute to overheating. The design sony is going for with tiny cameras is more of a curse than a gift

I saw several reports where they made sure to have it open. Still overheated.

I can confirme. The a6300 overheats. I did 15 min ,no problems..tried again and went for a walk. When I came back the camera was black and stopped at 11 min. I had the lcd pulled out. The battery appartment was hot...the room was normal temp. This remind me of the Sony Nex7..which was a nightmare

So first proper shoot with the A6300 this weekend.

I had terrible overheating problems after an hour, not even recording continuously but rather 2-5 mins at a time with brief pauses in-between.

Also the manual focus assist zoom is a joke... how the heck do Sony think this is even usable to check focus in video mode... How do you tell if a shot is sharp by looking a blurry mess!!? Basic logic fail.

However the 4K image is just... SO GOOD.

Nice form factor and EVF too. Also the quality of the rear screen (when not zoomed) - very very good indeed.

So it seems like a 8-15 min record time before overheating huh? Do the As7II's have simliar over heating issues.......

There's no overheating for the S II, or at least for my S II in 95 degree weather as tested, rather.

With these smaller cameras, the only way to avoid overheating during aggressive, high megapixel downsampling is to make the camera (heat sink) larger or add a fan, make the silicon smaller (more efficient processor/memory), or change the amount of information being processed.

The overheating is in 4k or 1080? is there a difference?

 

Thanks!

Ive been going back and forth if I was going to give this a try. But ultimately have decided to pass.

I dont know. I guess if you want a small body with s35 4k, its cool. But it always seems that Sonys are... A bit further from perfect than other cameras.

And for me personally,  that feel that 4K is just a feature and no way near a must, its tricky. I mean with a kit lens it costs $150 less than I was offered an F3 and only $250 less than a C100. And on top of that it will be half price on the used market before summer is over. 

I guess I dont see it as an A-cam (over heat) and as a B-cam its probably better to wait.

But if you guys that bought it start uploading stunning footage.... Who knows :)

Soft 1080p, overheating issues and crazy bad rolling shutter (worst of any Sony 4K cam yet) isn't convincing me to get rid of my GH4. I was really hoping Sony was going to deliver with this one :( .

The overheating issues aren't too surprising since there had been many rumors throughout 2015 that the camera had been delayed due to heat issues. (Sony clearly prioritizes compactness of its APS-C mirrorless bodies over robustness. As a sales strategies, this surely pays off: Having APS-C bodies that are as big and cost as much as Olympus/Panasonic's MFT bodies and having full frame bodies that are as big and cost as much as Fuji's APS-C bodies means to win the customer in the camera store.
