I was at Genesse Park by Lake Washington and what better way to spend the day than shooting a duck with the Sony A6500?
The quality is outrageous. I’m loving the Sony A6500 for it. I need more time to play around with the camera but the few times that I’ve played with the video recording has proven to me that this is a camera hard to beat! The focusing on the camera is fast! It is probably one of the fastest focusing cameras I’ve seen.
The camera tracks movement like a pro. The few times I tried focusing the camera on seeing how well it would capture movement is when you see the blur occur for a second in the video. I really didn’t need to press the back focus button (custom setup) to refocus the image.
The sound capture is wonderful on this camera as well. It is at default settings and you can hear the sound capture done supremely.
One thing about capturing video in 4k on the Sony A6500 that bothers me is the fact that the screen goes dim to conserve battery life. As you know, the Sony Alpha cameras suck when it comes to battery life. Hopefully, it’ll all change with future versions as the Sony A9 has proven that they can have longer battery life and a bigger battery for their cameras!
