  • Not so long ago Sony showed the world the

  • a6400 and when I say 'the world' I mean

  • mainly the press in America got shown the

  • a6400 and the rest of world kind of just

  • watched the American press getting hold

  • of the a6400 but anyway it's here I've

  • got it in my hands in my bag in fact and

  • people saying a6400 vlogging this

  • vlogging that in fact I should be vlogging

  • with that and not this so here we go

  • Oh magic through the beauty of video editing

  • the gh5 has turned into an a6400 anyway

  • first of all I've got a bit of beef with

  • some of the things that been said about the

  • a6400 like huge fillet steak

  • massive t-bone steak beef with some of

  • the things that have been said anyway let's

  • go it is Sony's first big release of the

  • year but what is there to big up about

  • the a6400 but first this video is

  • sponsored by Squarespace the place to go

  • to if you want to setup your own domain

  • website or online store it has a screen

  • that flips up every time there's a new

  • camera that comes out with a screen that

  • faces forward the whole vlogging

  • community just loses their shizzle or another

  • bodily fluids because it's a vlogging

  • camera yeah and Sony highlighted this

  • with their own promotional videos with

  • not just one but two promotional videos

  • but then the whole issue of putting the mic

  • on top on the hot shoe thus blocking the

  • screen became apparent people's hot

  • shizzle went straight back up right up

  • from where it came from and the

  • complaints started coming out what a fail

  • Oh Sony what have you done it's blocking

  • the screen I can't see myself that's not

  • very good vlogging camera then is it

  • but you know there were solutions

  • solutions came out and Sony's solution was

  • a sort of L bracket which is fine

  • apart from the fact it probably

  • blocks the battery compartment which

  • seems alright it's not blocking the screen

  • anymore but the thing is you will need

  • to change the batteries a lot with the

  • a6400 and then there's also the fact that

  • it'll probably just come loose what else

  • is there

  • tape cheap and stupid then there's the

  • up yours arm which to be fair you might

  • as well just give it the finger but

  • forget all that because the solution

  • is easy and cheap and quite obvious for

  • just 25 pounds 99 sounds like an ad but

  • is not an ad and with that one penny change

  • you get you can use it to attach the

  • thing to your camera it's a cage and it

  • will give you serious video geek

  • credibility I mean I don't know why Sony

  • didn't release their own cage accessory

  • because with rx0

  • they have a little cage thing for it

  • they could have made millions with this

  • but look if you can stretch your budget

  • to add a cage get an a6300 cage because

  • the cold shoe's on the right solves your

  • problem put the mic on the right of the

  • screen

  • a6,500 cage cold shoe's on the left see

  • you're still blocking your screen just

  • on one side but if you have the rode

  • videomic pro Plus which is quite a

  • chunky mic make sure that you push it as

  • far forward as possible because it might

  • knock against the screen which will make

  • a noise because the shock mount does

  • wobble about talking about wobbliness

  • and talking about that knocking sound I

  • mean that is one thing the rolling

  • shutter is pretty damn atrocious it's

  • like jelly

  • jello depending where you're from like

  • when you're vlogging like this you

  • really don't notice too much of the

  • jello effect right

  • that's my only way across the river

  • but for what it's worth the rolling

  • shutter in 4k looks a little worse than

  • a7 III not much more but still worse

  • it is however much better in 1080p but

  • you're probably buying a Sony just to

  • boast to your friends that you can shoot

  • in 4k with your fancy new mirrorless

  • camera aren't you otherwise it's quite a

  • good camera the video there's no

  • recording time limit a7 III has a 30

  • minute time limit this doesn't have any

  • probably because it doesn't overheat as

  • fast as the a7 III side-by-side the

  • a7 III starts to overheat after 1 hour

  • 25 minutes and stops quite soon after

  • that the a6400 just kept going on and on

  • and on just like a frickin Duracell

  • bunny after about 2 hours

  • I gave up because I've got better things

  • to be doing to be honest

  • proxy recording for faster editing mic

  • input no headphone jack but really are

  • you gonna be monitoring your sound while

  • vlogging I don't think so when we talk

  • about vlogging cams of course the big

  • competitor to the a6400 is the Panasonic

  • GH5 the camera I'm using to film

  • this right now but that arguably has the

  • better spec because less rolling shutter

  • in-body stabilisation but this could

  • excel in one area and that's dynamic

  • range and that's useful because because

  • I want to get my face right out this Sun

  • right now because I think it's burning a

  • hole in my eyeballs god let's move over

  • okay that's much better foe my eyeballs but

  • now we need to expose this correctly

  • because I'm in the shadows if we expose

  • this for the sky keeping the details in

  • the sky this if we try to pull out

  • details on my face it's just gonna end

  • up a noisy mess right like that

  • okay so let's change the exposure let's

  • expose to the right as they say which

  • basically just means overexposed

  • of course this is quite an extreme

  • example because it's extremely backlit

  • but you know in the Sony advert they said

  • it'll be good for back lighting

  • situations yeah clear even with

  • backlighting well yeah it's always clear

  • when you switch on the artificial

  • lighting isn't it but there we are

  • exactly same aperture exactly same

  • shutter speed same ISO so now I can see

  • on the zebra pattern that they're both

  • over exposing the sky and that's what we

  • want because we don't want a noisy face

  • although my face is noisy when I open my

  • damn mouth the GH5 has the better video

  • options for sure 4K 60 but the

  • a6400 retains the details in those

  • highlights much better the video on the

  • a6400 is pretty good overall it's just the

  • rolling shutter but to be honest is

  • anyone really gonna mark your vlog down

  • if your content is good besides with an

  • ultra-wide the GH5 IBIS wobbles in the

  • corners too a lot of fuss has been made

  • about this being a vlogging camera but

  • why don't they just focus on this as a

  • stills camera because in terms of specs

  • it's pretty damn good so here we are in

  • Trafalgar Square because it's Chinese

  • New Year and they've got some stuff

  • going on some Chinese-y type stuff

  • look there's Chinese people over there

  • over there there's one right here

  • [Music]

  • of course this is no ordinary Chinese

  • New Year celebrations this is in

  • the UK so this is done in British style

  • though they've done it with the weather

  • like this with people standing around

  • and middle-aged Caucasian

  • people dressed up as middle-aged Chinese

  • people it's got the same Sony

  • eye autofocusing system

  • but the difference is that now

  • it's always on and then brilliant other

  • neat touches you can customiae what

  • focusing zones show up so you don't have

  • to scroll through a load of focusing

  • options you don't ever use anyway but

  • also the touch screen is good for moving

  • the focus point and also you can just

  • press on your subject to start tracking

  • just now some Chinese dude asked me are you

  • Lok 'are you Lok' 'no I'm the other on'e Chinese people can't

  • tell the difference between one Chinese

  • dude there's another Chinese dude racist

  • now the auto focusing on the sony a6400

  • with Sony's eye auto focusing

  • is brilliant i don't know how they can

  • make it to work so well it's just it's

  • like black magic

  • in fact sony should have called it eye

  • black magic because that's a very sony

  • name to come up with isn't it curiously

  • doesn't work on panda eyes but apparently

  • there will be firmware updates soon

  • where it will work on animal eyes i'm not

  • sure about men dressed up as animals but it

  • will work on animals apparently that's

  • probably in a future firmware update

  • maybe the face and the eye AF thing though are just

  • incredible i must note that this footage

  • like record of the screen it shows auto

  • iso but actually on the screen you can

  • see what ISO it is even though it's on

  • auto even when i'm moving about like a

  • crazed madman it keeps following my face

  • and my eye like a crazy mad thing as

  • well when you put this focusing ability

  • together with the fact they can take

  • photos several of them in quick

  • succession like this

  • then you can take over the world or at

  • least you can get number of shots in

  • focus there were a couple that was

  • slightly off but impressive nonetheless

  • given that I was quite close up but

  • dare I say even though I haven't had

  • both cameras side by side or that was

  • just last week when I tested the Fuji it

  • feels like the Sony's eye and face AF

  • is just a little bit better than Fuji

  • noticeably better it kicks its ars....so

  • anyway only kidding they a6400 is

  • amazing value it would be wrong to just

  • dismiss this as a vlogging camera gone

  • wrong because not only is it a mostly

  • good camera for video but especially for

  • stills it lacks the ibis of the a 6500

  • but this is stiff competition for the

  • recently released

  • fujifilm xt 30 which is exactly the same

  • price and also lacks ibis yes the

  • screen flips into the mic but a camera is

  • more than just seeing your own face in

  • the screen just before I go on a say a
