Video shooting A6000 vs. RX10
3 months ago

Has anybody so far tested video mode with A6000 compared to RX10? I am reading a lot about both cameras, but until now there is few info about video on A6000 in real world, but much about video with RX10.

I know, the difference of no jacks for mic and headset at A6000. But besides, is the video quality better on A6000 or RX10 due to no line skipping with the smaller sensor?

How is it under low light - indoor conditions? The RX10 has constant 2,8 and a long range power zoom perfect for video shooting. Which lens would be comparable for the A6000?

I am going to buy that A6000 baby, if video quality and handling is very close or the same like RX10, maybe even better, due to more choice of lenses, because I also like to shoot lots of stills. Maybe more stills than video, but I don't have the budget to buy both or to buy much lenses at start.

Or should I wait until DPR and others tested all the features of A6000?

Unfortunately there are no shops locally in Vienna with both on stock, where I could compare them.

Any advice and maybe examples with links are welcome.

Thanks a lot for the links. So it seems that the a6000 is not only a perfect companion for stills but also for video.

except for the fact that you cannot really use a good microphone.

True, but I was looking into using a RODE microphone. But, you are right, it is better than nothing. And, it appears that the A7 and A7r are limited to 29 minutes of recording, which in truth is probably more than I would need at any given time.

That said, I am still going back and forth between the A6000 and the A7r.
