Yesterday while I was doing nature photography I had to turn off the camera several times because it was hanging with the curtain up, nothing was visible on the display and in the EVF you could see the last photo shot and the focus points were blinking.
The problem was presented with the following configuration
Sony A7R III + Metabones V + Canon EF 400mm f / 5.6L USM AF-C Wide focus mode
Most unfortunately I may need to return my Sony a6300 that I recently acquired. I notice a distinct tilt of my images when using the EVP (also when I upload them) but images are straight/level when I view them on the LCD screen. I'm a committed EVP lover so this is highly disappointing to me. I actually purchased another a6300 and had to return it to Sony for this issue and this camera (another a6300) was a replacement. Has anyone experienced this issue? So disappointed. Thanks much.
I am in the market for a new camera and I have decided to go with Sony. I was wondering how things were looking in 2018 in regards to these Sony cameras. I have the option to either buy:
Sony A6300 for 800 euro from a dealer (0 shutter actuations but no receipt or warranty)
Sony a6500 for 1366 euro brand new from Amazon
I've seen the overheat tests between the two and unfortunately most of the time the a6300 turns off and the a6500 keeps going until it runs out of battery or at least reaches the 30 minute mark for those who have the 30 min limit. I understand they moved the thermal limit with firmware but that doesn't change the fact that it heats to the point where the camera may die from overheating.
The a6500 has increased buffer depth and marginally better image quality, they boast better performance at higher ISO. It has touch focus which may come in handy, it has a redesigned menu layout, it has IBIS and while it isn't perfect it's not bad to have for handheld shots. Some features for quick and slow mo video and 35 seconds of continuous shooting at 11 fps.
The a6300 is a bit of a gamble but the price difference is significant so I'm kinda stuck. I need to get out of my own head and need to hear some outter perspective.
Any tips would be much appreciated. Thank you.
