All in all, I think this would be a pretty good entry level vloging camera. Once the screen is turned 180 degrees for taking selfies, the camera's rear command dial automatically switches functions to allow for easy control of the zoom and shutter release. Coming from my A7ii, the autofocus is a little disappointing. So small, it's inconspicuous and would be great for street photography. The movie quality 1080p is decent in good light. We did our research and this topped the charts.
And, seeing as it was a gift, we didn't use the camera until after the support period ended. Overall this is a good purchase. If you're a seller, Fulfillment by Amazon can help you increase your sales. Dynamic range fall short of my A7ii, very disappointingly so but I have to remind myself this is the entry level. If you buy it mainly for everyday uses i. It boasts a powerful 24. On the good side: the lens, while not spectacular and with some chromatic aberration, is super-light and quite wide.
A degree of ruggedness would be preferable for the active, and yes, clumsy user. It falls apart in low light, however, like when I use it to photograph food in dim lit restaurants. I love everything about this camera, from its ultra-light weight and cute look to the cool power zoom lens and sharp images, except for the lack of viewfinder. Would not recommend the camera if it breaks within the first week of using. I purchased this before my trip to Europe next month. On the video side, the results are terrible.
We didn't get a lot of time to use the camera as the micro usb charger broke and was lost in the case of the camera. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining about the quality of the pics, just the quality of construction. I do have difficulties with macro settings, my previous camera captured macro shots easily with great details. Image quality is good in good light but not stellar and does not blow me away. Film simulations are fun to play around with.
It does have 4k video, but it is limited to 15p, unusable for anything aside from landscape which you can then speed up 2x to get to 30p. Prices, specifications, and images are subject to change without notice. We tried the camera out for two weeks in a variety of settings - indoor, outdoor, night, distance, etc. After about 30 minute of not using it, the flicker would go away. The battery lasted all day long.
However I did have problems with it freezing several times, and would have to remove the battery and reinsert it to fix it which is why I removed one star from the review. Skin tones are great also in good light. I wished that it would zoom in more with the lens it came with but when we saw the photos on the computer you could zoom in all the way on the photo and still have a very clear image, so the zoom was in post processing. Lastly, timelaps is 4k 30p. This was a nice camera but we ultimately ended up returning it.
Perhaps it is user error. I didn't buy the protection plan. That was a big selling point for me and it was a bust. I bought this camera for our trip to Japan. I took over 2,000 photos and would recommend this camera for anyone looking for something other than just a cell phone to take their vacation photos. It is a great camera, easy to use, but we ended up choosing not to use it a lot of the time.
When combined with the new fujinon xc15-45mmf3. To be fair, I have to read the manual again to make sure I know macro on this new camera. It was easy to use and took really nice quality photos. Not responsible for typographical or illustrative errors. I opted to purchase a third party wrist strap.
That's a deal-breaker for me for stills. It helps to achieve superior selfies by focusing on the eyes. So to sum it up. It is hard to write an objective view until you master all of the settings to take the best pictures you can. On the still side, it takes decent photos in good light. Trying to master the setting to optimize pictures.
. If only it had better video quality, I'd keep it. However, I buy this camera to use on vacations. Because the lens was relatively large for the camera's compact size, it immediately cracked off following a light spill. It also has a 4k burst mode for photos which can be very handy. I really wanted to like this camera, but its faults were a deal breaker for me.
