  • It is almost a perfect camera for me - here's what's missing: - USB-C charging - Wide angle - Better active stabilization Those 3 would definitely make me switch to that camera as a main ''everything' camera! The autofocus feature is *_insane_*

  • At 00:13:00 It's a shame to see the camera lose focus on Brandon's face, despite the shot being the exact use case of the camera.

  • 0:55 - it is no micor-USB port on the camera but a MULTI-port. That is the reason it still charges with micro-USB... using USB-C would make the camera incompatible with a wide array of third and first party accessories.

  • dude, Brandon, the CR2032 is literally the most common button cell battery, it's in every freaking motherboard, my car keyfob also uses it, and most small remotes, like an LED remote and a lot of watches and yes you can get it in a lot of grocery stores, at least around here in Romania.

  • Jumping from an iPhone to this is pointless in my opnion! Not that big of a jump in quality for $800 investment and have a lot of downsides. I'd get the A6400 or A6600 that are way better overall, not only for vloging but for everything!

  • I have a feeling it only takes 500mA through the micro-USB :D I heard theres gonna be some software that allows you to use it as a webcam through the microusb ( ofc you can use video output and a capture card already ) so I hope this can be adressed :D It would kinda suck if your 24h twitch streaming marathon was disrupted by a slowly dying camera battery :D I wonder whether theyre gonna use something like a DisplayLink .

  • I just somehow dont like sony's camera, color a bit off and on the pale side, and with those button and industrial design from the 2000's. I do really want to like them because it work and have nice features especially with low light in certain cameras they make and they're the only one who make or think about certain great feature's. They're design overall(button in the remote control and parts of camera) is just so outdated, and I guess image codex too, color balance always seem a bit off on the light/pale side, and somehow at same fps, just seem lower on fps and less smooth overall. the picture doesn't feel as solid as other cameras, and the subject too, especially colorful buildings. I just take my go pro or phone for group pictures and when need filming//film or take a picture.

  • I work in camera sales here in the UK and I actually appreciate that manufacturers aren't including an external charger block with every camera by default. For a start, if they did it would just be factored in to the price anyway, pushing the RRP up. So the complaint of how much the charger costs is not completely reasonable. Secondly, the VAST majority my customers who buy compact cameras from us genuinely don't miss the external charger and are more than happy with 'charging it like you do a phone.' Third, it cuts down SO drastically on e-waste! Seriously, you'd be HORRIFIED at just how chock full our spares drawers are with spare chargers. Now... To contradict myself a bit, I will say that for a camera that is aimed directly at video over photography, which is very battery intensive (especially in 4k), I do think that with this model they SHOULD include an external charger, maybe at least with the vlogger kit (spare battery would go amiss either). The biggest downside is that the NP-BX1 batteries are horrendous and drain like a mothertrucker. In real life situations, you'll be swapping that battery out after 35-45 mins of filming. I get that they chose that battery to reduce the size of the camera, but I can imagine a LOT of vloggers would appreciate a slightly larger grip and the NP-FW50 battery found in the a6000 range.

  • Everyone's commenting about how you can find CR2032 batteries in most shops (which is true)... I'm just surprised that after filming for LMG for so long that he didn't even mention CMOS. Also, you'd need a pretty big watch to hold a CR2032, they're still "button cells" but watch batteries are much smaller. The most common uses for CR2032's are CMOS and car keys. Just thought I'd let you know 🙂

  • Not everybody uses the camera for vlogging so having that 360 degree rotating screen doesn't serve everyone. Having a screen that flips upwards is way more convenient if you actually shoot things and people other than yourself because you can do it without using two hands.

  • The fact the camera cannot pull more current than it uses is totally inexcusable to me. That battery pack is probably capable of providing 10W over micro-usb which should be enough to supply the camera during normal use. Also the stabilisation seems pretty bad compared to what modern phones are capable of.
