Help with File Format, bit rate etc. in a6400

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody :) Newbie Alpha user here... I recently got my a6400 and loving it.

I'm planning to use it for some (music) videos soon, and I was hoping that I could get a few things bit more clarified by someone more experienced.

As I understood, to get more cinematic-like effect I should stick to 24p(in NTSC mode), so my options are:

  • When File Format is set to [XAVC S 4K] -> 24p 100M or 24p 60M
  • When File Format is set to [XAVC S HD] -> 24p 50M

...

So, is 100M gonna get more data than 60M which is gonna enable to create a slow motion footage in 4K..?

Or I should - If I wish to create a slow motion footage - select one of these (while in [XAVC S HD]):

  • 120p 100M/100p 100M
  • 120p 60M/100p 60M

Then slow it down in Premiere, and convert it to 24p..?

...

I got a bit confused with all these options, apologies if I'm asking anything too obvious :D


Thanks a lot for all the help!

      I had a bunch of photos on my SD card (Sony alpha 6000) and then shot some videos using the timelapse app. I could see them when in playback mode on the LCD. Now (3 days later, not using the camera meanwhile, but I did change batteries), I don't see the videos on the SD card! Where did they go?  Is it possible that the timelapse application didn't save them to SD card and they're gone because I swapped batteries??

      I'm trying to shoot a video of myself in front of a background. I am in focus but the background is blurred. Is it possible to ask the A6000 to have everything in the same focus?

      Hi,
      Fascinated by photography for over 40 years.  After a cleanout of the "museum" of cameras and leaving the darkroom behind, settled on the a6400 as the one to rule them all.  Have since added the sel18-135, Sigma DC DN 16, Sigma DC DN 30, and Zeiss Touit 50f2.8
      Astounded by the image quality off the body and primes, even though expectations were high.  Even the zoomer is not a complete slouch.
      I take pictures for myself.  I don't need the endorsement of the twitterverse or whatever, but am always up for learning how to use kit better.

      Hi all,
      Sony offers a Wifi enabled remote view/control which I find myself often using, due to what I shoot. However, the ImageEdge / Sony Alpha (A6400) camera firmware combination turns out to be very unreliable (not only to me, but to many others I read).
      Often when my phone screen goes off, I will have to go Back in the camera menu, find the remote menu item, reveal the QR and rescan, otherwise it won't work. I have hit the 'report issue' function each time (which triggers a flimsy error code in the error report (ironically) and I keep hoping this will finally be fixed someday. For a modern camera in this class, we should expect this to work.
      Additionally, I also tried ImageEdge for desktop to wirelessly transfer / preview data during shoots. After many restarts, reconnects, reinstalls it doesn't find my A6400 at all. (this would make a massive difference opposed to cable or worse; take my camera off my balanced gimbal and remove the SD card because sometimes the USB connection doesn't respond).  

      In other words; Sony has is lacking big time when it comes to modern day wireless features (mobile monitor / transfer, desktop monitor / transfer). Does anyone know if there is better 3rd party software available with the capability to do this with a SonyA6400. Or; if Sony is rolling out actual fixes on this soon?
       
      Thanks!
      - Vinesh
