Starting with some around the house footage of Layla, then moving on to some real world zoom and transition testing. After that I bring in the camera slider and I try and show what sliding and zooming looks like at the same time with a waterfall scene. Next, it’s into the New Lab for some quick zoom testing and a Dolly Zoom effect attempt with the camera slider 😉
Lastly, I will share some behind the scenes of the studio and lab area in very low light and then into the garage for a quick fun break if you are curious. I may have to do that again later today if I get time, but projects around the house also have to get done….
Here is the video footage and please feel free to ask questions or comment below as always.
Sony E PZ 18-105mm f/4 G OSS Lens – Sample Video and Lens Testing
Be sure to select the HD Quality for the best viewing experience. It may take a few minutes to load depending on your connection, but it looks much sharper and then you can go full screen!
A few A6000 and selp18105g snapshots from the past few days..
That is about it for now, but I am loving this camera and lens combo for real world video and regular photography! The ~ effective 158mm range with the 1.5x crop factor, really is enough zoom for most everyday use, and the with the A6000 High ISO as good as it is, the constant f/4 aperture is totally usable for video and photography of all kinds.
|I also find it very impressive how variable, smooth, and quiet the SELP18105g lens is while zooming and focusing. I can’t even hear it in the original video footage and did not adjust or edit the audio. The camera slider is pretty audible though 😉 The A6000 also renders the video really well and it’s way better than my Nex-6 in that area. Focusing while recording video is also much better and more accurate with the A6000 than my Nex-6. The Nex-6 was good, but in low light it would wonder much more often. The A6000 does not have that issue near as much, and once you learn the focus system a bit, it can be worked with.|
Gatta go to the Home Depot, so sorry for the rush article and have a great day!
