I am using Sony as my 2-nd camera. Main camera is Panasonic P2 (shooting 50i) and it's picture is fine at computer monitors.
My friend using Sony A7SII for TV too. And filming 50i. He has no flickering problems.
I don't produce interlaced video so this is a little beyond my ken, but does the flicker appear when you watch on a TV monitor? Interlace flicker is a common problem and your editing software may have a "deflicker" mode, but I also wonder whether the flicker is a product of watching 50i on a "progressive" monitor, like a computer, versus a TV monitor which using an interlaced stream.
Here's another "which lens to buy" question. I haven't seen much, if anything, about the Sigma 100-400 on the A6000s. So here it goes...
I have an a6000 (soon to be an a6400), the kit lenses, a Tamron 18-200 and an old Nikkor 35-70 macro and an even OLDER Nikkor 500 mirror (it's fun to play with but hard to get focused, especially with my old eyeballs).
I like wildlife and nature, landscape etc.
Am thinking about the SEL70-300g, the Sigma/MC-11 150-600c and the Sigma/MC-11 100-400.
I'm thinking the 70-300 would have too much overlap with the Tamron and the 150-600 would be so big and heavy I wouldn't use it much.
Does anyone have any experience with the 100-400 as far as the AF and sharpness goes?
Any direction would be appreciated.
I have to think it's the junk that MTS files are. If it was a robust and wonderful codec/format everybody'd be shooting MTS, and they aren't. At least in my corner of the universe. Helped a friend edit who did a shoot in MTS and it was painful. Wasn't enough data in the files to get a decent image. Good thing the people paying him didn't know a thing about video other that what they see on their phones. That sample looks anemic, struggling to play smoothly. Hope you figure it out because that look isn't very inspiring.
