Our team at DPReview TV just wrapped up its review of the Nikon Z7 II. The idea that APS-C is simple a stepping stone to FF is a myth, perpetrated by Canon and Nikon. Why would you want to buy a $2k GM lens for your sub $1K APSC camera in the first place? I would prefer to have the same choice of 3rd party lenses Sony user base has. Fanboys only point out someones obsession not actual criticisms. Does its performance justify its high price? Fuji glass is not overpriced. 6400 Wins:-Aesthetics. I'm not sure why both of you are so exercised by the A6500, but it has some of the best 4K on the market. One more thing to nudge.-Blah blah 4K blah blah video. If it was all about the experience I’d go out and delete pictures at the end of the day (like a fisherman returning a fish to the water) ... but the whole point of taking pictures for me, is the end result. Exposure X6 is the latest Adobe Lightroom competitor from Exposure Software. All of the buttons on the rear of the camera are in the same spot, as are most of the buttons on the top of the camera. It is way under hyoed. i'm interested in seeing the test spec developed for this scientifically tested proof? The problem with all Bayer sensor equipped Fujifilm bodies is that are deliberately crippled. 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. Fuji is not a niche product. I wasn’t aware of a portfolio requirement either. You can read more on Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autofocus. Nikon made a huge strategic error with the 1 series. It’s actually not bad, even if some lenses are not the best. The Canon Powershot Zoom is a product in a class of its own: part camera and part digital monocular. Moreover, I'm afraid that's in the end a mistake on their side as it diverges resources from APS-C line and unlikely to make any significant profits for them both in short and long term. 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...". Building upon its GPT-3 language model, OpenAI's new AI creation, DALL-E, can create images of anything you can describe with varying levels of success. Sony A6X00 cameras also have bad rolling shutter. I’m just looking to use the grip for extra battery power only. I know they are radically different in features but is it the same sensor and processor? I think it means if you zoom in to any camera phone pic you realise it is a hideous mush, so if you want detail, clarity and an ability to crop you might want a proper camera. Kaizen is a lie - Fuji just makes more money sending cameras with half-baked firmware to the market, then they keep selling these cameras for quite some time and the only way to keep them competitive is by updating the software, rather that spending more money for R&D. I guess this is the mirrorless action CAF debacle. Contrast AF rocks baby, namely in video ;) 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. The only leverage they have is that the X mount is closed and you cannot have AF with any other brand you attempt to use via an adapter. Richard's tone is always flippant when discussing Fuji and he misses so many of the positives. Can you compare 100L against XF 80 in terms of performance and price? Fuji on the other hand like nikon has buttons and dials dedicated (or can be) to specific functions. Buy UURig C-A6400 Vlogger Camera Cage for Sony a6400 featuring Formfitting Camera Cage, Cold Shoe Microphone Mount, Multiple 1/4"-20 Accessory Threads, Two 3/8"-16 ARRI-Style Threads, Increases Grip Size for Comfort, Lens Adapter & Handgrip Threads, Maintains Access to Battery & Controls, 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 Tripod Threads, Non-Slip Camera Pads. Fuji knows this. 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. There’s barely any APSC Sony lenses to speak of. Both cameras feature a magnesium alloy construction and the A6400 is dust and moisture resistant, unlike the Fuji. And yet, no system is perfect. It couldn't be more balanced and impartial. It's calculated, that Sony APS-C users buy the FF lenses, because it's not a big hurdle to swith so FF at some point. That claim is demonstrably false". ..and STILL despite a number of comparisons of a6400 and xt-30 (reviewed 2 weeks ago)... we still dont have an actual a6400 reviewif the original writer cant manage then maybe get some help? Keep in mind also that some canon gems like 10-18 and ef-85 can be had for real cheap and work like native on both, but better on Sony. Also, as I have correctly reflected in my gear list, I have both X-T100 with Bayer sensor, as well two other X-Trans bodies (with another one on the way). @notchy - "Fuji have released 32 X-Series cameras in eight years and 26 or so X-Mount lenses within the same period.". I'd be happy to discuss the issue by private message, once you've read the article. Yeah, the camera is not suitable for whip pans. I always encourage new comers to buy Fuji though I myself invested some in Sony APSC lenses..and naturally a6400 is my camera. @MILC manEven if you just want to duplicate the image with another film simulation, the integrated RAW converter is a great option. the A6400 more closely matches the A7III which has improved color from the Mark II bodies. You called the 80mm macro vaporware, you claimed that Fuji will have their priority on the MF-system, when they released it, and you were wrong! @Vignes: "how do you scientifically proof Sony AF is better? This luxurious-looking leather case made for the α6500 camera body provides a firm grip and prevents slippage from hands. I asked a legitimate question (see the original post), but I didn't really find an answer even after searching for it. No surprises here. The comparison tool is not a flawless and final judge of a cameras image quality, it is only one additional useful tool. If I want a selfie, I'll use a phone. Maybe not a huge jump in quality, maybe there is, but the point is I shoot more and have fun with the Fuji. Sony's habit of giving similar names to cameras that look the same can make it difficult to choose between them. The Sony A3000 does have a decent 20 MP Sensor, and good Handgrip! 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. Well played mate. All Fujinons with no exception have corners that are not at the same level of sharpness. The cost of developing sensors is one thing, but the technology can be applied to any format - MF, FF, APS-C, MFT. needing specific gear only is understandable, but it's personal preference, it has nothing to do with hard facts in a gear discussion. Both cameras have a distinctive grip on the front, and that of the X-S10 is larger. Sony for me is out of the question for my personal and old reasons. Seems fine to me. $30.00 shipping. They're 4K-capable cameras with similar resolution APS-C sensors: 24MP on the Sony, 26MP on the Fujifilm. To get it out of the way, I'm personally biased towards rangefinder-style cameras due to being left-eyed and having big mitts. Fuji isn't perfect. DPR - you need to add a vacation and travel category. What's the best camera for shooting landscapes? @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. and that unlike e-mount, there really isn't any sharing between mf lenses and x-mount lenses... advantage: sony. If you did, you'd have told me by now. DrewRick: Seems like they're both the same except for the viewfinder and a few knobs here and there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_fq0lTT3Vw. $50.00. 2. A6400 flaws:-The UHC-1 card slot is sllooowww to clear buffer. @Relaxed - I know what I'm getting into. The sentence pattern you used implies that that Fuji spends more of its resource on medium format than on APS-C. Was your choice of pattern just a non-native speaker error, or did you in fact mean to claim this? As to the rest of your comment - I see no trolls here, perhaps because I don't have anything against Sony or any other manufacturer. Summary: Zhiyun Crane 3S is an overqualified camera stabilizer for Sony A6400. Multiple lenses, particularly the primes, are sharp all over. We won't settle that argument on this Sony Fuji camera review thread, where Fuji and Sony guys will troll each other, and now we are arguing about Canon. As a full frame Sony snob and an APSC Fuji fan, I can whole heartily recommend the Fuji as a better APSC platform. Good travel cameras should be small, versatile, and offer good image quality. The result is that fine details get smudged and things look unnatural. Lousy eh? Metro case grip extension for Sony a6000 a6300 a6400 Excellent product and doesn’t add much weight, also can be used with arca Swiss heads Upgraded camera so I don’t need this anymore Message me with questions

what we do know for a fact is that Fuji lags badly in certain lens areas, like macro and powered zooms for video... x-mount video market share is so pathetic that Fuji had to release their manual focus mk zooms in e-mount, a year or so before they did it in x-mount. Fujinon glass is overpriced and is far from perfect. Fuji focuses on it's medium format cameras, not aps-c. for example, how many years did it take for Fuji to come up with a real macro lens for x-mount... sony already had at least three e-mount macro lenses. but I'm not defending the rolling shutter - it's obviously awful. Standard corporate behaviour. Sony A6100 vs A6400 vs A6600 – The 10 main differences. If you believe there are incorrect tags, please send us this post using our. Only the OMD10iii? so if sony are better why are you shooting fuji? a74! We think it could be a good fit for photographers of all kinds – find out more in our full review. But those yellowish Sony's colors are very annoying. Check it out. Their performance suggests there's a lot of commonality. 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. "There’s barely any APSC Sony lenses to speak of." I wouldn't mind so much if 1080p wasn't so awful on the A6X00 series - that is unforgivable. The new CV5 system on a chip can encode 8K video at up to 60 fps, while also providing enough overhead for AI-powered features and capture modes, such as face-detection in action cameras and collision avoidance in drones. But I suspect the in-RAW noise reduction is applied even there. Mft isn't neglectedApsc will never be neglected (Sony has done it for some some but it isn't the right move)You say glass stays, and if you want to move up to FF invest in E mount. @RubberDialsIf Jordan uses the A6500, he will have decided that he can use it within its limitations to avoid rolling shutter. Prior to that I used the a6500 and before that was the Nikon D750. I had canon mirrorless and it just wasnt as fun as the Fuji I traded it in for. Saying that the best lenses for the a6400 are from... Sigma... shows that Sony’s priority is elsewhere. Sirk, Fuji has never given me anything. my exact words were: "Fuji focuses", and you just made the false claim that I said "only concentrating". Camera works great. The in camera raw conversions is awesome to learn about how to change your settings beforehand and the jpgs I now get with the Fuji's are amazing.. Actually, I found it very very useful. We could use another button and one more dial. So in terms of performance the A6400 is in no way comparable. Yes, i do own it, and used it since ages at unsecure locations here & there, so i can judge it. how do you scientifically proof Sony AF is better?i'm not saying its bad but how do you proof it scientifically? using motor drive with high rate of shots per second. As we press on with our full review, we've analyzed just how the Zeiss ZX1 stacks up in front of our standard studio test scene. I hope that you realize that. This has nothing to do with AF, which is spectacular on the A6400 and great on the XT30. Camera sales are plummeting due to smartphones, and manufacturers just aren't prepared to invest R&D into giving us decent upgrades. A "small sensor" camera? Subscription costs have also increased. @ozturertYes, the A6X00 cameras all exhibit some of the worst rolling shutter in 4K. They work on both evenly". Now they are struggling to come up with a meaningful strategy for their APSC user base. But for me it’s the exact opposite. (Yeah, I'm being shallow). It made photography so much more fun and have taken amazing photos with it. I shoot Fujifilm and these are good times in the mirrorless camera market with several options available in FF, APS-C and M4/3. Yes, you will have to spend half an hour setting everything up and selecting which menu items you want to have quick access to. it is LESS shallow shot wide-open) as the sensor size decreases, ie. EDIT: Just wanted to add, how well a camera is selling has nothing to do with my point either, that it could fill a niche use for somebody like me, instead of spending nearly a grand on the two in the article, plus much more on their fairly spendy lenses. DPReview TV: Best enthusiast full-frame mirrorless camera. Primes are now also there: sigma and Sammy did the job. We found this had a very negative effect on performance, both in terms of autofocus and responsiveness. Yes I know: Lightroom is bad for Fuji files. 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. That's your prerogative, but DPRs Jordan Drake uses the A6500 as a B camera and he knows a thing or two about video... Rubberdials, what is his primary camera? Some things may be improved for good as well; won't hurt. The GFX glass is far better than L glass. Their zooms aren't that good and for what they are rather overpriced. The XT-3 review was much more professional, but he just doesn't get the Fuji ergo or glass. On the other hand, JPEGs are over-processed and do not provide enough headroom for heavy adjustments, nor they are that great for large prints. Carey Rose promised it would be this week. Everything else onto this body screams only : i am cheap! Overpriced little pieces of .... toys with even more overpriced lenses.At least Fujis lenses are seit to be sharp. So it's not fair to say that it wasn't pointed out. I have not seen any evidence of what you're talking about in the many sample images. I find the A6400 is a natural fit to my hands and can be easily carried without an aftermarket grip. The 80mm is real, and they released many lenses for the APS-C system over the last years, and still have a roadmap of upcoming lenses. The Sony a6400 is a slim mirrorless camera with an EVF, fast autofocus, 4K video, and a flip-up screen. I also think that from a price/performance standpoint, especially with glass, Fuji wins in that department as well. I don't think AF should be the primary differentiator between the two. What's the best camera for travel? If you have the budget for those lenses, just buy an FF camera. It will now make it easier for travelers to legally fly. Don't we have a sensor duopoly who sets the rhythm for the others? "there is absolutely no arguing with the fact that Fuji engineering resources are splitting time between medium format and aps-c". Karroly: Yes Pentax did have some nice cameras, but they didn't make it did they. The ergonomics of the Fuji is a disaster, and the quality of construction, I had X-T10 and my nose was constantly beating the back of the camera for having an evf that does not protrude and without a decent eye cap (or option without making fixes) , the grip is shallow, it is heavy, it feels very decompensated in the hand. Smaller formats are different solutions for different uses, a point that camera manufacturers (except Fuji, Oly and Panasonic) ignored. A6X00 cameras take 6K video and then downsample that to 4K, that's why you have very good details BUT also horrible rolling shutter. I have no interest in the opinions of someone who makes up stuff to win arguments. 2. weather-sealed (splashproof) I've kept all my Sony lenses just in case. Still not perfect, but way better unless you want to travel light. The g3x can be had for 600USD and the sonys are 1000, 2000USD! 10-18, 18-105g, 18-55, 55-200 are all great value zooms, in line with Fuji offerings both price and iq wise. Remember that. My Fuji however, gets my personal attention. You certainly suckered me in. Functionally, the Sony VG-C3EM grip is excellent. The lightweight, compact strobe includes a magnetic round head and incorporates an impressive array of features, including wireless compatibility. seriously, are you f'ing kidding sony, fuji? "and that unlike e-mount, there really isn't any sharing between mf lenses and x-mount lenses... 265 e-mount lenses for sale at b&h is an another absolute fact". Not even close. That's why it's more detailed than the 4K from the C200, which is straight 4K. 16-50 is junk. As we press on with our full review, we've analyzed just how the Zeiss ZX1 stacks up in front of our standard studio test scene. When shooting vertical, camera does not shoot the same as shooting horizontal. And to push the shadows by one stop, or to adjust the highlightsb, you don't need a calibrated LCD. All new milc contenders, Canon, Nikon, Pana, did not even bother (yet) to release aps-c sensored bodies. Fuji also makes lenses for cinematic use, inks, dyes, binoculars, medical imaging and industrial testing systems, etc. For me, the ONLY thing the Fuji and Sony offer that's better than my G9 is their CAF, but the same could be said for a DSLR and they can be had for way under $900, as well as having far more affordable lenses.
