FINAL THOUGHTS

This camera is a no brainer if you are always behind the camera.

Vloggers/Youtubers will need additional gear to get the most out of this camera.

This is by far the smallest and best camera for $1400 right now.

PLEASE do a review on the a6400. PLZ

Ryan Priestnall says:

I think the lack of information on the external screen is for using external recorders. You wouldn't want information burnt into the recording.

Jan Schreier says:

Hey Caleb! I now bought the a6500 and I have an external Monitor attached to it. How ever in video mode I can not change the aperture and shutterspeed. But as soon as I go from video mode to Manual or profile 1 or 2 the resolution of my external monitor goes down very badly. Any workaround? Thanks!

Couldn’t care less about the flippy screen! I’ve just ordered this baby!

Alaa Sami says:

Is it worth buying? Do you recommend it for me, I’m interested on neon photography and low light

Chelsey Wiggins says:

What do you think about the lumix g9 compared to this?

shaolin95 says:

Problem with Panasonic is IQ pales I'm comparison to Sony from DR, detail and high iso. Also the great stabilization suffers from weird warping issues.

Abd Faiz says:

Is it worth it to upgrade from Sony A6300 to A6500? Thank youu

Drake Pollard says:

Hello. Would you happen to know that the new crop factor would be if a metabones adapter was used to connect canon glass? I believe the a6500 is a 1.5x crop? Thank you

Fahri Yasa says:

James Heming says:

Hi Caleb, did you ever make your guide for the A6500? Be good to see it.

Chloe Scanlon says:

04:58 'But it's only useful if you're behind the camera.'…….. And a damn sight better than the stupid flip out to the side screen. We DO NOT want a flip out to the side screen!!!!! Stop telling us that you do, it's only useful for Vloggers, for everything else it's a burden to creativity.

Photohunter says:

i am wondering why you giving us at 1:21 lumix gh4 shots XD

Oren Haim says:

Why too much talking and not enough showing us what it does in the real world?
You have a nice face but I prefer reading the specs dude…
