kty: what is that ugly, mushroom shaped thing sticking out of the top?

A pro feature for sure! Like landing a plane using only instruments and math.

60mm f5.6 doesn't exactly "obliterate" the background. But I'll take it over fake bokeh any day.

I tried this software together with Sony's webcam driver and Streamlabs OBS, and it all seems to work really well! The white balance is all over the place, in this picture they're all on auto WB and there's a small led lamp on top of the Canon. Notice the bars on the Canon, according to the FAQ that is to be expected on some models. https://ibb.co/Cnh0qpK

Woah! I must applaud Canon for this. Some of these cameras are pretty old!

neokind: The function of the custom switch is cool. I’ll be interested in side by sides with the Sony.

Yeah I like that too. It would be great if Sony could make a firmware update so that you could change any custom value (like white balance) by pushing a button and turning the ring. I don't see why not, it's only data.

Photo_AK: Show some love for 28mm, for god's sake!
Panasonic, Nikon, Canon ... why hating 28mm?

I'll second that, 28mm is awesome on FF video! And for that I'll add the Canon FD 28mm f2.8 to the list. With an ultra smooth focus ring, light weight and low price, you can't go wrong!

In reply to:

DarnGoodPhotos: The S5 is actually a $1450 camera because they will give you the Sigma 45mm f2.8 when you preorder.

That's a great deal, seeing how lenses hold their value over time pretty well, as opposed to say an upgraded car stereo.

tqlla: Screw drive limited to the A7Riv and A6600? Terrible.

I'll tell you what's terrible: Learning that your mom gave away all her Minolta lenses to one of her students.

Melindra: What if you need 2-3 cameras?

@Jon555 I like your thinking, although I got a car instead.

Melindra: What if you need 2-3 cameras?

When I started my channel I knew that I wanted to have two 4K cameras from the beginning. I can't call myself a beginner anymore, but I certainly was back then. Coming from photography, I continued with Sony, but if I was starting over with video I might go with BM Pocket 4Ks. But having great autofocus has also helped me a lot, it's a big deal if you're a one man team.

In reply to:

LeDatas: The DFD focusing system is controversial, but how many people use AF-C normally when taking photos? Do Sony users just keep the camera in AF-C all day and use subject tracking? Is the future of photography constant subject tracking auto-focus?

Yes, AF-C + wide area on half press all the time. If it's a smaller static object, like the fine print on a bottle, I use a back button which I have mapped to DMF, which is AF-S with manual focus override and x4.7 magnification. These are really useful basic mirrorless features we'll soon see Canon users raving about.

winter1: Whats the general consensus regarding “mini hdmi”?

Any good reason for not putting full size hdmi on the R5?

Mini HDMI isn't used very often on cameras these day (to my knowledge), micro is more common. But both -- "a disaster waiting to happen". A full size port takes up considerable space though, and if you don't use it it's a waste, but I feel like it's gonna break every time I've used micro HDMI.

milkod2001: That's great but does it overheat though?

I know Mike, I look forward to doing that with future cameras, but since I’m also recording the same scene from a different angle with an A6500 (that has never overheated either), those breaks also serve a purpose in post.

I’ve never had my A9 overheat from recording video. I just point it at my talent, hit record and the af is always keeping his face in focus. The session are usually 3 or 4 x 25 minutes.

In reply to:

Abel89er: As someone else pointed already, this camera is competing versus the A7III actually. Also, keep in mind that you have a severe bunch of lenses in sony E mount aimed at budget conscious customers.

The only budget conscious lens on the Z5 is the kit lens which is interesting, I must admit.

So, once you start looking at lenses and not only at the body, from a enthusiast point of view, Sony comes ahead again.

@matthew saville Yeah that's the thing, should a brand comparison take adapted lenses into account? Where do you draw the line?
