Ive spent the last 3 our on forums and YouTube trying to change my recording format on the camera so I can easily use Premier to edit. But like I said I can’t figure out how to change the file format for the SD cards to stream lone the process.
I've recently begun shooting video with my a6000 and am finding it to be more confusing than I expected. The camera does a good job, although I need to get a new SD card to use the XAVC format (the one I have is only 8GB Class 10, 30MB/s). I'm shooting in AVCHD 60p in the meantime. I read on some older posts and heard in YouTube videos that many people shoot in XAVC and then export to .mp4 with a smaller bitrate after editing. Obviously this has been done for anything on YouTube, but even after down converting, you can see the difference in AVCHD/XAVC codec quality they are trying to show you
Warning As I have discovered to my cost when using the format function from the memory options , it does exactly that, it completely erases the card and if you have made a mistake you cannot recover images with a recovery program; the sony A7RII does a full format. Well what did you expect I hear you saying, i expected to be able to reverse that's what, if I format a card with my Olympus body or any of my Pentax bodies I can still recover images and I was used to that fail safe if I messed up. Don't fall into the same trap, if your Sony say format then it b****y well means it!!
Hello, I have a Sony A6500 and Sony FDR-AX53 video camera and they are doing something that I was not expecting related to the video file name convention. On either camera, if I take a video file, the file convention name is similar, such as C0001, C0002, C0003, etc and incrementally goes up by one for each new video file created. If I remove all the existing video files from the camera SD Card, and then start taking more video files, the video file names continued where the last clip was taken so in my example, it continued from C0004 and incrementally went up from there. I also de
