Looks good for iso 4000, but I would expect that. Would love to see some around 6400 and 8000 if you have the chance.

Are you still using the A6000 for any sports action?

Yes, basketball.
I have recently been using it more for landscape shots. I want the a6500 for some reason but I really enjoy using this camera.

Took the a6500 out under my ski coat today. With the small 50 1.8 it was totally reasonable. Struggled with framing as I was fumbling like crazy with a new, seemingly very small, camera system. The AF seemed to do very very well. Really didn't miss much at all. Almost all shots are dead on. Ones that were missed were user error I'm sure. I look forward to getting the action thing dialed.

I do miss the 1/8000 max shutter, I knew I would. I do like to shoot quite wide aperture often. Sunny winter day is a no go. Anyone use ND filters with these a6xxx cameras? How's the AF with the ND?

Obviously not many folks with this camera yet. I guess this could end up the a6500 sharing thread. I'll just keep posting a few.

This one's weird...Looks like a painting. I seriously just looked left and clicked. I was surprised with the accidental framing! I can see my truck in the upper lot! :-)

Wow, lovely. It does look like a painting.

A coworker of mine is getting his a6500 tomorrow. I'm excited just because I want to play around with it, heh. Have never held an a6XXX

His arrived, and I just got to play around with it for a few. Gotta say, I did experience a little bit of lag, but overall after just using the direction buttons for the last year, I frickin LOVE the touchscreen. In a pinch, that would be so much faster than waking up the AF selector, then click-click-clicking it over to where you want it (especially if you're going from one side of the frame all the way over to the other)

Very solid little camera there

The touchscreen drove me nuts right off the bat. But at the same time I was trying to wrap my head around a whole new system. With practice I'm starting to really work it into my shooting workflow. Really sweet for video!

Speaking of video....I've shot a few vids in "4K". When I download them to my Mac the show up as MP4 files. Does that sound right?

I don't think he implied that it did. The message said he missed the 1/8000 shutter speed. If I was guessing, he is referring to his Canon that's in his signature.

Max SS on a6500 is 1/4000.

Correct. I miss 1/8000 with my previous canon bodies. Shooting wide open in sunny conditions may be an issue and I will likely try an ND filter at some point.

I must be the only one on POTN with the a6500 ;-)a. I'm still kinda bugging out about the Sony skin tones. Sure is a lot of yellow/green to the sony rendering. Kinda driving me nuts and requiring a lot of attention in post. Things just not quite as easy as they were with the canon FF system.


EDIT: I re-worked this one a tad using some of the advice bpaulette mentioned....i.e. pull back on the magentas and drop the black point a tad. I also raised the temp +150. This now really works for me.

It took me a little while to get use to as well. Canon to me was always cooler and more magenta. I just do a custom white balance and all is good.:lol:
