Hands on Sony NEX-6, production model Firmware: V1.00
As requested, moire and aliasing sample added vimeo.com/53577244
Spending the day with the NEX-6 left me with a very clear opinion. If you are looking for a photo camera that can shoot video: look elsewhere!
This camera is simply not good enough for video. (it can be great for taking photos but this is not my department). The amount of moiré and aliasing is simply not acceptable.
The dream of having an ultra small HDSLR that can shoot high quality video and be enhanced with accessories if required remains totally unfulfilled here.
Notes on the footage:
- No CC or sharpening was done.
- Some of the footage taken with the Canon 70-200mm f 4.0 is softer due to the use of a Light Craft Vari ND filter (not recommended over 70mm).
