I know it was shot under some rather poor conditions, but I quickly made up a crude looking video to better describe what I observed in my OP.

The last part of the clip i switched to manual mode on the Sony to brighten up the video the D5100 level and it was pretty bad.


There's nothing wrong with the camera settings or the camera itself. The minimum shutter speed for your shot to be useful is 1/50s for 24fps, go slower and be prepared for some nasty motion blur. It's called the 180degree shutter rule. This rule applies to ALL cameras, be it a Sony a77, Nikon d5100, or a $25,000 Canon c500 cine cam.
