The Sony 50mm F1.8 OSS is a staple lens that pairs really great with cameras like the Sony a6000 or a6300. Because of the OSS (optical stabilization) the lens can be used both in video as well as used with slow shutter speeds when taking photos. This video looks at both image and video samples with this lens combination. It's not a complete review as the rest will take a look at the auto-focusing capabilities in a later video.
Learn to build a Solny mirrorless kit for just under $300 and move your way up to full-frame by doing portraits and event gigs. Use that money you save to upgrade your gear and move up from the Sony NEX-6 to the Sony a7II. You'll find out that it's really expensive comparatively to move up with the Sony mirrorless system compared to DSLR's.
This video is based on my own speculations of what the Sony a6700 will have as far as features. This is not based on any information or insider information about the camera. I'm basing my predictions on what Sony has been doing with their cameras and also potentially what it might be based on my own desires.
In this video I show you how I would build a DSLR kit for $300 and build your way up by hustling. I also make some comparisons to Sony Mirrorless as they're more expensive to get started with. I recommend you start with a basic camera like the Canon T2i. You'll want to buy that body used via eBay or Amazon. Add on a 50mm lens, like the Yongnuo 50mm f1.8 to do portraits. From there, add on some lights, a Sigma 17-50 and additional body. Try to secure smaller event gigs to raise funds. Then use those funds to upgrade to full-frame.
The Sony alpha a6300 can be had for only $699 if you put a little effort in reselling the kit lens that comes with it when buying grey market. You can actually get it for even cheaper if you have access to eBay bucks at the time of purchase. You can even apply some of these techniques to the Sony a6500 and even Sony a6000 buy selling the kit lens if you don't need it.
If you still have your Sony alpha a6000, you might be wondering what lenses to get in 2017. The lenses I recommend to take a look at this season is the new Sigma 16mm F1.4, Sony 18-105, Sony 16-70, Sony 10-18, Rokinon 12mm F2, Sony 50mm f1.8 OSS, Sony 85mm f1.8, and Sony 70-200 F4.
Should you buy the Sony a6000, sony a6300, or the a6500? In this holiday buying guide I go over which ones you should consider and where to buy them. Currently, the one with the best price is the Sony a6300 with kit lens if you don't mind buying grey market. The next best deal will be the Sony a6500 with a nearly $200 discount from retail, and following that is the Sony a6000 which is a bit lukewarm right now.
Is the a9 missing features that are found on the Sony a7RIII? After the announcement of the a7RIII, it became apparent that several features such as Picture Profiles, Anti-Flicker, Rate, and Proxies were not present in the a9. These features have the potential of being added into the a9 via firmware update, but will sony do it?
What happened to playmemories app? Why is the playmemories app missing in the Sony a9, a7RIII, and RX10IV? In this video, I discuss the current situation with the app and why it's missing from theses cameras and potentially what we can do to bring it back.
First impressions of the Sony RX10IV. I take a look at the newly released Sony RX10IV which was announced not too long ago. I take a look at basic comparisons to my Sony RX10II. As far as initial impressions, I found the grip on the camera to be much better, menu, and overall performance. A full review will be coming soon.
I sell my last Canon DSLR, the Canon 5DIV. I've been with Canon for nearly 7 years already, and I'm finally making the permanent switch over to Sony. What really sparked this change was the recent firmware updates for the Sigma MC-11 that gave near 1 to 1 performance of my Sigma 120-300 Sport lens on my Sony a9.
In this week's Q&A I tackle a question about whether someone should upgrade from the Sony alpha a6500 to the Sony alpha a7Rii. Link to all items mentioned: http://geni.us/PRT7SyS
I also tackle a handful of other questions this week that range from lens choices and camera bodies.
I review the Dell XPS 15 9560 model with 4K Inifinity Display. Link to Laptop: http://geni.us/SVsL
Anker SD Card Reader: http://geni.us/OiBJL
Bluetooth Mouse I Use: http://geni.us/HVcj
Dell Alienware 13R3: http://geni.us/S90Mz
I share my thoughts as a content creator and whether or not this is a viable option for photographers and video editors. I go over my experience using the Dell XPS 15 in Adobe Premiere Pro as well as Adobe Lightroom. Unfortunately, I will not be keeping the Dell XPS 15 9560 model as this unit had too many issues. When I unboxed it and had it running, it already exhibited issues.
The battery life on the dell xps 15 is good when you're doing light work. However, when you start editing video for example, the battery cuts to about 1.5 hours.
I think if you can get a unit that works really well, I would highly recommend this for both photo editing and video editing.
I test the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Art Lens on the Sony a6000. Link to lens: http://geni.us/tQiP
The Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 Art lens is an interesting combination on the Sony a6000 because of Sony's missing fast aperture zoom lenses. In order to use this lens, you'll need to use several adapter options that are available for this sigma lens. The one I highly recommend is the Sigma MC-11 which gives the best performance and compatibility.
This video is more like a mini review of the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8. I don't cover the video aspects of the lens too much, but cover the image quality this sigma lens on the Sony a6000.
I test out the Pixco 25mm f1.4 CCTV Lens. You'll be surprised by the results. Link: http://geni.us/KBNK
I decided to grab the Pixco lens, the 25mm f1.4 on a whim. I didn't really think it was going to be any good. I would see it pop up in Amazon. It was under $30 so I just went for it. I was even sure if it was going to work. I was very surprised by the resulting images I go.
I answer a handful of questions from viewers. I recently picked up the Sigma 30mm f1.4 Contemporary DC DN Lens, so please stay tuned to the channel for a future video/review of it as well as compare it to the Sony 35mm F1.8 OSS (SEL35F18) lens. One has stabilization and the other does not.
I checkout the Sony 12-24mm f4 G Ultrawide lens for Sony full-frame mirrorless. Link: http://geni.us/euC2yWt
I think this lens is going to be the ultimate vlog/vlogging lens for YouTube content creators that want use Sony Mirrorless. I was really surprised by how light this lens was and how well it paired not only with a full-frame Sony alpha a9, but also the Sony a6000. The Sony 12-24 FE F4 is a lens you should definitely consider over the Sony 16-35mm if you always find yourself needing to go a little bit wider than usual.
In this video, I share with you my favorite Sony E-mount camera of 2017 as well share my thoughts on the 20k subscriber milestone we hit on YouTube. Thank you to everyone!My favorite Sony E--mount camera is the Sony a6300. It was the camera that started it all for me on this channel. Link: http://geni.us/Cl7Gvrx
I compare the Sony a6000 and Sony a9 using the Sony 70-200 F4 and Sony 70-200 F2.8 G Master in both photo and video. Links to products below:
The Sony a6000 is a great aps-c camera that many have, but what happens when you compare it to a full-frame Sony monster, the Sony a9. Even more crazy is if you pair the Sony a9 with the Sony 70-200 F2.8gm and pair the Sony a6000 with the Sony 70-200 F4. I found from my experience comparing the two cameras and lens combination that Sony a6000 photos were very sharp with the F4 lens and the Sony a9 with the F2.8 lens was also very good and sharp.
Cheap wireless microphone any good? Meike MK-WMP1 vs the Rode Link Filmmaker Kit. Amazon Link: http://geni.us/Atl54oS
I go through the Unboxing, Setup, and Test of the Meike MK-WMP1 to determine if it's a good wireless lav kit to consider. I will also show you how to use a wireless lavalier and microhpone in this video. I test the microphone on the Sony a6500.
