Well done - you're on your way. I've been interested in the A-6500s since seeing a film made by Brandon Lee in Spain (amazing) and considering getting them for a docu-series I will be shooting in Bali in 2019. Can you let me know your thoughts on the camera performance, user features, reliability, etc. I can see again that it's turning out great images but wondering if there are other insights you might provide from actually using it? Thanks in advance, Reg.
Thanks - It’s my first serious camera so it’s hard for me to compare against any of the larger mirror less cameras out there (A7 series, GH5 etc.). So far I’ve really enjoyed it. I haven’t experienced any issues with over heating.
My issues have been as most of the reviews say - the batteries are too small and the menu is a bit of a maze at times. I’ve bought 3 batteries which usually covers me for 8 hours of so of shooting. Only other comment would be that the 1080p can come out slightly soft, although this is easily correct in post.
Good luck with your shoot in Bali - I’ll be over there at the end of January for a couple of months so let me know if you need a second shooter
