SONY a6300 Iphone adapter


Recommended Posts

Good morning folks. This is my first post to this group. If I run afoul of protocol please let me know. Thanks for having me.

I have a SONY a6300. I have an I phone. I have a Zhiyun crane 3 axis gimble.

I would like to mount the phone on the camera to use as a monitor. Although I have seen this configuration in videos I have not been able to find the apparatus that would allow this to happen.

Is there such an animal. If so, where may I purchase it ( or call it ) or is there something I just need to get to rig it. I do want to look as professional as I can since it will help me get more gigs.

i have started doing videos for real estate companies and providing a voice over for the videos. It’s starting to catch a little but trying to look through the gimble is a little tough.

 

thank you and I look forward to posting here now that I have found you

Since you want to mount the phone on your a6300... you'll need a phone holder with a hotshoe mount:

    • Hi Pieter, Not yet. I've thought about that, to use a tripod. But I've no time to try that yet. I'll try it this weekend and let you know.  Thanks!
    • Did you try manually focussing at 135mm, camera on tripod / solid ground, delayed release? If you can get sharp pictures that way, at least you know the optics are fine.
    • I don't know how those cameras would fare as aviation cameras - either of them are far beyond my scope of purchase - but people have been taking pictures of planes and other man-made flying objects well, as long as they have been around.  Unless the aircraft is flying straight at you or flying perpendicularly away from you, the AF lagging behind the shutter should not be an issue and in almost all cases you would be shooting at infinity so internal lens movements to acquire focus should be at a minimum.  If you are expecting to crop a lot, I guess a camera with higher resolution would be better for you but that also depends on what you are going to do with the image.  If you are going to be printing large mural sized prints, higher resolution image would be better but if you are going to print at or below 11x17 or not print at all, even a cropped image from my A7II will be good enough on any consumer grade monitors on the market.  I have seen images printed from the first generation Olympus OM-D E-M5 (16MP) at 11x17 and they were excellent.
