On full-frame cameras there are still some macro lenses (like my beloved AF Micro-Nikkor 105mm / 2.8 D) and some primes (like Milvus 50/1.4 and Milvus 85/1.4) which can achieve high sharpness corner to corner at some apertures. Still not perfect, but way better unless you want to travel light. The XT-30 has a faster read-out and as good or better 4K quality, but inferior video AF and a 15 minute recording time. Maybe when they redesign the A6xxx series completely. But all reviewers and reviews have some bias. My fuji however, is a much smaller, compact, and coherent system. This edition of the 'Absolute beginner’s guide to film photography' will cover the bare necessities – what you need to get started. This marginal improvement does not make or break a camera system. Might I suggest Olympus MFT? But in APSC, Fuji annihilates Sony. Pretty sure 16-50 is cheap though - and for a kit, it is quite okay. But those yellowish Sony's colors are very annoying. Buying FF lenses for APSC is pointless, because you lose any benefit from the smaller format. It seems to be your personal war, to blame Fuji on every possible situation. The Fuji lenses are as a group viewed as top notch. You have the writing ability to do much better, so do it. When I do shoot landscape, I'm not convinced as well. For casual video I'd probably go with the G85/95 - decent 1080p quality with IBIS. It doesn't bother many Fuji users, or most non-Fuji users, for that matter. And with this in mind I'd put my money on the e-mount, preferrably a mix of the three fast Sigma primes and otherwise FF lenses. Nice sized wooden handgrip on the right for a better hand-held shooting experience. It is safe to say that Sony hasn’t changed much about the design of the two new cameras. ... Design: the A6100 is the lightest, the A6600 has a bigger grip. If you can't get shots in focus with the Fuji, its your fault! So, opinions differ, you see? I normally have it paired to my Quattro SDh (and a tripod) for landscape work, but the smaller bodies would make a questionable combination. There is a setting under AF1 called Switch V/H AF Area and this grip does not function (Shutter Button does nothing) when you turn this feature to on to one of the two settings (AF Point Only and AF Point + AF Area). I respect your belief, but I accept only hard facts for myself and I'm not seeing in which universe L glass is inferior to Fujinon. They work on both evenly. Not how Sony and Nikon want you to see it. Most of the grip side of the camera is occupied by buttons, leaving little space for a user’s thumb and in the case of someone wearing a glove, none at all. @Greg7579: regarding the GFX Dpreview and Richard raise some arguably valid points and they are actually not targeted specifically on GFX, but rather on format as a whole. So you're saying Fuji is better because of unreleased, untested, unproven vaporware that's "about to come out"? I was very accurate regarding things that I like and I don't like about the system. However, the Meike MK-A6300 Pro, battery grip for … They work on both evenly". The idea that APS-C is simple a stepping stone to FF is a myth, perpetrated by Canon and Nikon. Exceptions are exceptions but quality FF glass is big and expensive even in mirrorless.Too many wrongs in one post. Yes, you will have to spend half an hour setting everything up and selecting which menu items you want to have quick access to. well... the fuji crowd is especially good in repeating this over and over and over... @retr01976...if Fuji camera makes an extraordinary, stunning, mind blowing and stupendous photo out of an ordinary scene, then it is a fake camera ;-). I also specifically measured the rolling shutter figures for the G95, X-T30 and a6400 specifically so that it's clear that the Sony has fallen behind the market, despite its impressive detail levels. For a so-called niche system that's an astonishingly prolific output and hardly indicates neglect. It's capable of capturing 40MP stills at up to 30fps, 4K video at up to 60fps and 1080p video at up to 240fps. Loses many features? Their performance suggests there's a lot of commonality. Richard again gets it all wrong with a Fuji camera review. One thing that confuses me about the T-20 vs the T-30: The T-30 uses the entire sensor for the 4k, right? You could learn a thing or two from the professional fanboys . needing specific gear only is understandable, but it's personal preference, it has nothing to do with hard facts in a gear discussion. it is LESS shallow shot wide-open) as the sensor size decreases, ie. -Size. Scientifically Sony AF may be better, but for day to day use, this is dwarfed by the skill of the operator. If you have the budget for those lenses, just buy an FF camera. The result of this translates into even better Fujifilm cameras in the future! In practice, there's no Fujinon lens with homogenous sharpness distribution. Sometimes we are all arguing over ridiculous nuances and none of it can be proven scientifically. But I remember reading about 18-55 f2.8-f4, 16-55 f2.8 or a 10-24 lottery going on.Your comment just confirmed this... And loading some Fuji Xtrans Files in Lightroom I'm not convinced with the detail reproduction at all. 10-18, 18-105g, 18-55, 55-200 are all great value zooms, in line with Fuji offerings both price and iq wise. Our position isn't that 'Sony cameras aren't engaging,' it's that we've find some specific Sony models aren't engaging. The Nikon Z7 II has the same great ergonomics as its predecessor, but has more processing power, dual card slots, 4K/60p video, improved autofocus and more. sony rates fe lenses at 15-20fps af-c on the a9, Fuji doesn't have any lenses that are rated at anything, lol, "265 e-mount lenses is a fact, that you'd like to pretend doesn't exist, because it proves how lousy the x-mount lens selection really is". Check out the photos they took along the way and judge the image quality for yourself! No surprises here. But for me it’s the exact opposite. But it is a quite obvious issue that Fuji fanboys are the worst - if someone dares to point out a flaw with the system, some "smart" guys comes from nowhere to claim that "Your not Fuji user". As a novice who owns the X-E3 and A6400 and has played around with the X-T30 I feel like this review didn't emphasise my personal observations. @notchy - "Fuji have released 32 X-Series cameras in eight years and 26 or so X-Mount lenses within the same period.". so there you are, not being able to understand simple english, while at the same time claiming that real facts are made-up, and denying that incompatible fuji mf vs. aps-c is a factor. SmallRig Cage for Sony A6000/A6300/A6400/A6500 with Meike MK-A6300/A6500 Battery Grip CCS2268 is designed to provide protection and mounting options for Sony A6 series camera. Sony a6400 size compared to a set of hands That claim is demonstrably false". Plus whether you would buy other lenses other than kit, something to consider when buying. I'd be happy to discuss the issue by private message, once you've read the article. Meike MK-A6300 Vertical Multi Power Battery Hand Grip For Sony A6300 A6000 A6400. No. Just very interesting that the the entry level kit lens for the Fuji body is ignored in the comparison and this very old Sony lens design is at a price premium to the Fuji lens. You don't need to concern yourself. A6X00 cameras take 6K video and then downsample that to 4K, that's why you have very good details BUT also horrible rolling shutter. This certainly seems to bother you. AF is poor of course, but if one shoots MF most of the time that does not matter at all :) And IQ is still comparable or better than these two guys... "And IQ is still comparable or better than these two guys...". And there will be winners and losers. The x-t30 has it. Exposure X6 is the latest Adobe Lightroom competitor from Exposure Software. Here's a very good comparison by Max Yureyev between the GH5, A6500 and Canon C200. There’s no shame in that, and there’s no excuse either. The 4K footage is actually 6K footage which is then downsampled, which increases the detail and reduces the size of the grain. I won't be using the XT30 or A6400 as my only camera/system because they don't have IBIS, it's far too useful for me to leave behind. It is world class glass for less than L money. but I'm not defending the rolling shutter - it's obviously awful. Thanks to MAKE ART NOW Youtube channel for the lowlight profile. I have 4 GFX lenses. It's fairly standard to shoot at 4K even when your output resolution is 1080p and downsize it, because of the increase in quality. There are no fast zooms unless you buy huge FF lenses. Richard, you missed again because you don't like Fuji. The price does not match my experience of the relative quality of these 2 lenses especially given the very wide field of view of the Fuji kit. I don't really understand how I forgot to cover it in this article. They're just doing this to allow themselves to "upgrade in the future". I asked a legitimate question (see the original post), but I didn't really find an answer even after searching for it. I’ll be happy to provide a personalized portrait of my middle finger using my A7iii or my A9. The Fuji might have better chance once they refresh Motors in 1.4 primes. @RubberDialsIf Jordan uses the A6500, he will have decided that he can use it within its limitations to avoid rolling shutter. But Richard missed that completely and ignores it as usual. Think of two vehicles. The lack of a grip is a big issue for me with Fuji cameras. You certainly suckered me in. Other than that, I find your comment quite immature and even dangerous to people that are choosing a system right now. Is it a good fit for you? I think they've realized that MF is a niche market, and not many people are willing to spend the money on the bodies and glass from Fuji. You constantly claim, that "the path to FF" is a big plus, but you don't acknowledge that it's also a big compromise for users who want to use APS-C only, and want to have a compact and lightweight system. I know you're still unhappy about my G95 article, but your demand that we have to criticise all cameras before we're allowed to criticise one is unrealistic and would just mean we can't inform our readers about things we find. I have put aside my Sony RX100-V and bought Fuji X-T30 because I got tired of Sony's image. Bear in mind that bodies come and go, but that lenses are the relevant future prove investment. Exposure tells you about amount of light per square mm, an equivalent perspective tells you about light per whole image (which assumes viewing or printing the images at the same size, not in proportion to sensor size). If Fujifilm addresses some of the issues I'm complaining about, it will be an even better system. I would expect a refresh of those models soon, as that would make them two generations behind in processing and AF capability. there is absolutely no arguing with the fact that Fuji engineering resources are splitting time between medium format and aps-c, period. The grip on the Sony a6500 is a little bit more uncomfortable, at least for me, because it isn’t as wide as the grip on the Sony a6400. You don't even use the cameras (do you even use a camera at all?). Nevertheless Max's video and the fact that Jordan uses the A6500 as a B camera demonstrates that it's still an excellent video camera. 18-135mm, 18-105mm, and....nothing. I always cradle the lens with my left hand. It couldn't be more balanced and impartial. But are the photos good enough for casual use? PS: Fujifilm is indeed niche system suitable for street/portrait/fashion and Fujifilm is overselling by sending samples and supporting reviewers who paint a better picture of their lineup. You know … I have never shot it and I have shot it all. Other areas I liked with the Fuji are color science (film simulations are great), and clean video files. I was going to give him my XT-3, but I knew it would scare him away and back to his phone..... Is the X-A5 the same sensor as the X-T20? Well I'm no tech, but the A9 can shoot 20 fps on a full frame sensor with its electronic shutter - the A6400 is only 8fps on APS-C. ( Nikon, Canon, Lumix, etc..) and I always admired Sony for their new tech. how funny it is to see you make claims about "sentence pattern", lol. For those flirting with the idea of upgrading to FF some day the decision is obvious. Functionally, the Sony VG-C3EM grip is excellent. Nice bit of bait and switch. It is way under hyoed. @BrentSchumer - "What good E mount APS-C zooms are there?". Both cameras feature a magnesium alloy construction and the A6400 is dust and moisture resistant, unlike the Fuji. "Fuji focuses on it's medium format cameras, not aps-c.". And, having tested both cameras extensively, this is a fair assumption: they're both class-leading cameras. Chris and Jordan show you how it works. I owned one in the past and some of my best shots came from it.

In Tele Range ff is more expensive, but still there are Options. Neither of the two. Lots of professional work is still shot on 1080p and almost every Oscar winner this year was shot at 2.8k and mastered at 2k. Whereas, the lower magnification of the Fuji's manual focus means I rarely use manual focus on the Fuji. Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.

In this comments section: people who haven't tried the A6400'sAF in person. I would love a larger battery in a bigger grip. In my opinion, I feel that fancy autofocus systems are rather over-rated in importance for most non-pro users, and that they are over-fixated on by professional and YouTube reviewers. Fuji lenses are on the whole worth the money in my experience. Smaller formats are different solutions for different uses, a point that camera manufacturers (except Fuji, Oly and Panasonic) ignored. But there's something about feeling joy from holding a camera while you are LOOKING for that shot. Richard's tone is always flippant when discussing Fuji and he misses so many of the positives. And the obvious answer is: The Lumix DC-G95 is best! The minute the new model overtakes the shelves and the older one is out of stock, Kaizen is no more.

If I ever have the need I can stretch that coverage with the 8-16mm zoom. Once I develop my Panasonic S1 kit I will for sure be looking at a used XT30 paired with a 35mm 1.4 for street photography use and when I decide to travel light. it takes longer to get the shot on the sony every time you need to resetup. @RubberdialsI can't see any obvious rolling shutter in the video you linked, but you wouldn't expect any problems with the band as there's no fast pans, and the skateboarding is done with a wide angle lens so there's a lot of distortion anyway. On film I would not bother with anything smaller than 645 (my preferred format is 6x7), so why shall I on digital? The other goes from 0-60 faster (though the first is still fast). Sony has reliable, easy and quick AF, no xtrans and affordable Sigma 1.4 primes. And Sony full frame lenses are even more expensive and as long there is no huge used market like Canons, Sony full frame lenses are not suitable for someone buying a consumer camera and wanting to buy reasonably priced good consumer lenses. So invest in 3 Sigma APSC lenses and then move to FF? While the Fuji was fun to shoot, I just wasn't getting the IQ I wanted out of it (for landscapes and portraits). A newly-instituted price hike has increased the cost to $199 (or $149 for an upgrade). -RAW support. A 200mm F2.8 behaves like a 300mm F4 lens on a per-image basis. Fujifilm's latest X-S10 is a likeable mirrorless camera with some of the company's best tech packed inside, and it doesn't cost the earth. I think I got him away from his phone camera by recommending Olympus. I. I was responding to your statement that Fuji are only concentrating on medium format. The reason I chose Fuji over Sony was primarily because I prefer dials to menus (and the Fuji's have plenty of dials and buttons for the most commonly used functions like ISO, shutter speed, aperture, metering, focus mode, etc). Fujifilm's latest X-S10 is a likeable mirrorless camera with some of the company's best tech packed inside, and it doesn't cost the earth. I wasn’t aware of a portfolio requirement either. 6400 Wins:-Aesthetics. If you think people aren't going to attack Fuji for being APSC, then you have not seen the Fuji Board. Find out in our field review. With two batteries installed, your shooting time is effectively doubled. Fuji's current selection probably covers 90% of what most Fuji users shoot anyway. All new milc contenders, Canon, Nikon, Pana, did not even bother (yet) to release aps-c sensored bodies. Fuji shooter here. Free shipping. Both in how it … From that use, I can say that the Sony's greater manual-focus magnification makes it a joy to use in manual focus. I don't think your comment on the A6400 being "in theory be more powerful" has any basis. I've a sony with the newest menus (rx100 mk6, a73) and an old canon g3x.I'm quite proficient with both and im happy with the sony - but damn, the g3x interface is just so much easier. Isn't the Sony weather sealed? Neither is their price.4. Your comment smudges the details the same way XTrans does. The result is that fine details get smudged and things look unnatural. The words 'Real-Time' don't even appear in the camera's menu. IF I was doing landscapes photography, yeah I would probably want a larger sensor with a higher pixel count, but it's really more about usage than buying with the intention of going FF. What’s the best camera costing over $2500? b&h lists 265 e-mount lenses for sale right now, that will all work on sony aps-c, vs. 144 lenses for x-mount... there are also real adapters for e-mount, like the mc-11. Let me give you some reasons why is that: 1. The shorter A6400 allows me to cram.a ton of kit into a tiny bag, while it's greater width (due to grip) isn't a factor with any lens attached. No there isn't, but so what? Add to that the fact that XTrans is inferior to Bayer for capturing color information (for the same amount of megapixels), and it turns out Sony is way better for Landscape. Can it successfully merge the two? i'm not going to repeat all my posts, for someone who makes false claims about what's been said, and can't understand simple english, like you just proved with your inability to tell the difference between "Fuji focuses" vs. "only concentrates".
