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!

      Hello. I use sony A6400 and noticed about some blocky artifacts when use 25fps andISO more than 3200 and object move quiclly. i used good transcend card 128gb v30 and this problem is not in low bitrate. I test some cases and discovered what this artifacts become on all PP besides SLOG2 and SLOG3 and only on 25,30,50,60 fps, not 100-120fps, ISO > 3200. Anybody has this problem or it's defect of my camera?
      This example includes settings: HLG1 4k 25fps, ISO 5000 https://yadi.sk/i/7GE68PqfjElfgQ

      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!

      Hi. Until I can scrounge up $2k for the 200-600, my little 55-210 is my go-to for landscapes that require zooming. Unfortunately, my circular polarizing filter will not work with the lens hood that came with this lens. I hate to choose between lens flare and water reflections. Any knowledge about how to get them to work together? - Jared

    • I have never done any astrophotography. It is my understanding that with the a7Riiiii raw uncompressed, the only change that happens by selecting a picture profile are the gamma settings. https://youtu.be/9GGDkf4wMWg Therefore, which picture profile, if any, is best for astrophotography? Thanks very much for your help.
    • Think it's quite up to me when to decide to move along. In my very first post I indirectly answered your question: the A6xxx line will only get a MP boost when market demand is big enough. As of yet, it is not. Your reluctance to respond to my statement about the improvement of technology between the A7R2 and A7R4 is quite the satisfaction I needed from this discussion. Thanks!
    • You quoted a statement I made claiming it was untrue. I gave you the reference to prove it was true. Facts are pesky things. Since then you have been dancing around trying to change the argument. We can agree that this dialog is going nowhere. The title of my post asks a question you are unable to answer. I really don't need to hear that what I am hoping for in a future sensor is useless nor do I need you to tell me how far away I should stand when I view art. I have already shown you how y
    • This discussion is going nowhere. I already agreed with you two times over that there is a boost in performance between the A7R1 and the cameras after that, I'm not denying that at all. Don't keep insisting that I am and be all snide about it. Your main claim in this topic is that the latest fullframe-tech is not incorporated in the newest APS-C bodies. You're backing up this claim by comparing the A7R1 to the A7R4. Yes there is a very clear improvement, but you should put things into conte
    • Pieter, You asked that I back up my statement with references and I have. Hard data from your preferred testing website DXO that proves my statement and shows that you are the one that was wrong. Your inability to accept that fact is beyond me. Of course you could've used your eyeballs to confirm the same. Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content.
