Sony did not pay us to make this video and did not require us to make any content from this trip. Coincidentally we were planning on making this video anyway and thought it would be a perfect opportunity to do so since the a6400 is a crop body! All thoughts on the A6400 are our own.

Becki and Chris says:

How many of you are watching the super bowl tonight?

Tristan says:

I'm looking for my first camera and my options are the Sony a7ii and the a6400 and I can't choose between em

Oliver Hawkins says:

It's 90% the user. I could play with Tiger Woods' clubs and still be terrible at golf. He could play with a stick and beat me every time.

Osakattack says:

Full frame is better why lie lol

c rp85 says:

I enjoy my canon 80d which is not a full frame. But to be honest I find it take amazing pictures

Alistair Strachan says:

This is really good. Well done.

Christopher Dillman says:

14:26 – This sequence is the cliff notes for me on Crop vs Full.

Portraiture/stills – go Full. Videography – Crop. Fair enough?

The Beard Dream says:

Okay, I get the whole crop factor thing. But I if a sigma 16mm is equal to 24mm on my Sony a6400, and it’s a lens that’s only made for a crop sensor camera, then why can’t they just label it a sigma 24mm. And if you can’t put the crop sensor lens on a full frame body without getting the tunnel effect, then how is what he’s saying hold water? This always confuses me.

Hillary Campbell says:

THANK YOU for addressing the "equipment vs user" issue. I am so tired of hearing "You have such a nice camera!" as a compliment for the way my photo looks. That just means I had $$ — not experience. Turns out I also know what all of the buttons and the 1000 menu items do, too! 😉

Andy M says:

Did I miss your comments on print quality differences? I don't upgrade often either, I am still shooting an A6000 and A7 using vintage Olympus and Nikon lenses. hahahah
