Is there a better option for stills and video than the Sony a6500? It seems like the perfect camera for versatility.

Details? Thinking of getting my first camera and I want an a6000
>>
>>3172377
Yeah it's almost like technological development doesn't exist, they all have that cool stuff from start and cost of building the camera isn't a factor. You could have an A7rii for the price of an a5000! How dare Sony jew us!

You can just fuck off to suck Canon dick, at least you can be sure that your shitty camera won't get any technology worth upgrading in 5 years and it may even go backwards.
>>
>>3172388
5100 is a great choice from the sony range for a first camera because it's basically a cheaper a6000 with a flippy screen. There are some small things but no significant benefit of the a6000 over the a5100.

A5000 is missing things compared to both like function keys, decent video, viewfinder, etc which all matter to me since I'm learning so many different types of photography.

>>3172395
None of these features and technical developments. Try to be less edgy when you're getting butthurt on the internet
>>
>>3172396
You could have bought a6000 from the start. At least you have a choice to save a few bucks if you pick a5000, what the fuck is the problem? Having range of options is now considered jewing and "forced to upgrade" strategy?
>>
>>3172402
>what the fuck is the problem?
Exactly what I stated, Sony intentionally encourage multiple buys in the same way Blizzard etc do by making design choices to benefit them instead of the consumer, regardless of price range.

>Having range of options is now considered jewing and "forced to upgrade" strategy?
No, in fact I encourage it.

Be less butthurt and stop projecting.

How do you take photos in dark abandoned places? Particularly at night as I have work during the day?


I am thinking, 35mm lens, f/8, set mode to manual, on body flash aimed up with a white plastic defuser on it.

Tripod is a must for me. I take time to get the composition I like, looking for streams of light is a good way to enhance the subject. This room has a hole in the ceiling so it gives great light. Make sure to get all of the main subject in focus. The rest is just resisting the urge to over process it. Sometimes underexposing will give a better look. I take 2 exposures to make sure I get all the info I need so I can bring back some shadows later if needed.

Also toy guns.

Sony is the only camera company actually shifting the paradigm in photography. Anything else is a dead system. Why would you shoot anything but a 7 series for stills and 6500 for video? E mount is the best investment you can make in lenses.

>E mount is the best investment you can make in lenses.
Let's discuss the point "Claim #3: In-Body Image Stabilization" at https://petapixel.com/2016/04/04/sonys-full-frame-pro-mirrorless-fatal-mistake/
The remaining points #1-2, #4-5 do not matter to me since I'm not looking for a small system and I enjoy evfs and wysiwyg.

Someone in a german forum explained to me, for short flange distances retro-focal optics are still required to reduce vignetting, image field curvature and distortion. On the other hand, overall resolution, chromatic aberrations and transmission improve with a short flange distance. Furthermore a short flange distance enables to weigh up the points mentioned above, where compact lenses require bend sensors or else high quality lenses at least require weak retro-focal optics. The RX100, which I already use regularly, does heavily correct it's raw files for distortion, sharpness and noise. No problem with that, but proper raw file corrections should be considered when comparing systems.

Since Sonys announcements promised a more solid implementation several times than it actually was implemented and there are heavy critics towards the mount diameter, my trust in the FE system is not great.
I am not a Sony hater, I am considering changing the system for a long time, but cannot manage to finally make up my mind. I want above all that you can persuade me out of the points.

B-but if i put Canon lens backwards on Sony body it will work, since it's FE, right????

In the market to buy a landscape lens for my a6000 with a budget of up to $400
Came across these and am very much interested by the FE14M-E @ $339.
Some say that this is a lens equivalent to a $1000 one but without the autofocus; what's /p/'s take on it?

How is this acceptable for a professional portrait? her eyes arn't even open and they are not symmetrical. Do you think it's because the person taking the headshot for money was too shy to ask her to stop squinting and open her eyes more?
