I bought a new camera!!! Well, I bought a smaller camera to pair with my amazing Sony a7iii. Think cameras have sibling rivalries? I hope not, but if so the a7iii is definitely my first love! Now that we got that out of the way, I got a new camera! What did I get? I got a Sony a6400! Yes another Sony. Who buys a completely different brand? A crazy person. While the a6400 is a crop sensor camera, its got some major technology packed inside. It’s literally my a7iii made even smaller and including a selfie screen. It lacks the in body stabilization of my full frame a7iii but it’s got a selfie screen! That screen is so clutch!
Now why did I buy a second camera? I’ve been doing a lot of video work lately and I have seen instances when I want photos and video but I can’t do both at the same time. Why? Well I shoot video in a very specific way and I don’t just hit record and pray for the best. I found myself changing settings on the fly and missing shots. Especially at Beale Street Music Festival. It’s also nice to have two camera bodies for events and weddings so you don’t have to swap lenses. Enter the a6400. It shoots the exact picture profile I shoot with my a7iii and they use the same color science. So all my clips will match up! It also has the same mount as my full frame so I can use my existing lens, albeit with a 1.5 crop factor.
I’m excited about the purchase and the opportunities this allows me to have. I finally feel all professional lol. I’m going to get out and take some shots with this little camera and do a follow up story to help you decide if this camera would be right for you!
