We will have 3 new 4K kits available Friday afternoon. The kits will include the usual audio equipment +
- Sony a6300 camera
- Sigma 16mm f1.4 wide-angle lens
- Sigma 30mm f1.4 everyday lens
- Sony 50mm f1.8 midrange lens
These are awesome kits, but note that there are some disadvantages compared to our current Canon 70D kits:
- No flip out screen makes it difficult to shoot yourself
- The menu system is less intuitive – makes it difficult to learn on compared to 70D.
- More expensive: Canon kit with 3 lenses = $1300. Sony kit with 3 lenses = $2000
- 4K will push your computer hard and eat up your memory much faster than 1080p. Use Proxy-editing if your computer is bogging down.
If you are one of the first to claim a kit to use over the weekend, please use the following video to set up the memory recalls so that we can switch easily between 120fps 1080p and 30fps 4K.
Here are some videos of the gear at work to get you excited.
