  • Dmitry Kostin

    “26 MP Exmor R APS-C BSI CMOS sensor”
    Fujia had a similar matrix made by Sony for a long time (apparently as an exclusive) and now Pentax K-3 MkIII.

    • Alexander

      It looks like it. Only Fuji H2s uses a matrix with a stack. The Sony 6700 has a matrix without a stack, apparently the same as in the Sony A7R4 - A7R5.

      • Dmitry Kostin

        The X-T4 and X-T3, X-Pro3 had a regular one without a stack.
        PS> I would very much like to read a review or a note on one of these cameras in Radozhiv.

        • Anton

          So in Fuji H2s the 5th generation of matrices, and in x-t3-4 - the 4th.

  • Sergei

    IMHO another crap from Sony. Of course, I'm not a super expert, I only have Nex 5N.
    Cons: 1) The crappy display is 3″ but stretched out in length. At Nikon they are more square. Looks much better, the information doesn't overshadow the screen. 2) Sony's ugly menu. 3) Unreasonably expensive native optics. Dark minds for 500 bucks. 4) In comparison with the Nikons, the shooting process bears little resemblance to creativity (sighting through the display), more like some kind of torment. For a photo, IMHO, a camera for TP-nis, taking pictures is sharpened mainly on the machine.
    Pros: 1) dimensions and everything connected with it. The ability to not carry kilograms. 2. Picking 3. Sony colors (for some this is a minus).
    Of course, the camera is not bad so imprisoned for video. But the competitors seem to be no worse.
    I understand that for this money you can buy a full frame. So the options for this shit to become a bestseller, it must have: flawless video with excellent matrix stabilization to use Chinese glasses that do not have stabilization, wonderful fast autofocus, an improved menu, a bunch of customizable buttons, infopog (which is no longer there).
    Conclusion: a great entry-level camera for a woman with a good European/American salary.

    • Dmitry Kostin

      The a6x00 series cameras are popular with those who shoot video and have a Sony camera (for example, a7R).
      Often those who used to shoot video on a micro, but for some reason do not want to buy a full-frame 7-ku, switch to them.

      • Arkady Shapoval

        Why, my friend switched from Nikon D700 to Sony Nex 6 (the same ideology as the 6000th line) and is happy as an elephant. And in general, I know many who have a 6000 ruler under the photo

        • Dmitry Kostin

          Arkady, maybe I got the wrong opinion.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      That's what's funny, what you need to compare with mirrorless Nikon ZDX under which there is no optics at all (pathetic 4 dark zooms and 1 fix). And this completely levels out the stories about the sighting method, the same Nikon Z30 has no EVI at all. You apparently did not notice that this Sonya has a good EVI. And the menu of the latest Sony has been completely redesigned.

      Yes, and there are more third-party autofocus optics for Sony E than for all other cropped mirrorless systems combined. Remember the wonderful Zeiss Touit 12 / 2.8, 32/1.8, 50 / 2.8 Macro and even original and inexpensive Tamron 11-20 / 2.8, Tamron 17-70 / 2.8 VC etc., there is no such luxury under mirrorless Nikon ZDX.
      All other comments and descriptions also do not stand up to criticism. I dare to note that usually if there are a lot of rude expressions in the text, then the thought itself is rough and superficial, in fact, which happened in the comment above

      • Sergei

        I looked at the “cheap” Tamron 17-70 2.8 on Avito and Ali - from 60 thousand rubles to 70 thousand rubles. Of course, compared to 24-70 2.8, these are mere pennies. Only my salary is slightly higher than the average price of a lens. You can also buy this soap box for 140 for 200 mowers per kit. Nothing to have fun. Well, I do not. I'd rather listen to Olegas' stories about Sony, I'll understand that I'm not alone in this world and rejoice. And with the target audience, I guessed for sure, your friend will not let you lie.

        • Arkady Shapoval

          It was very funny

          • Sergei

            It's probably even funnier to compare the A6700 and Z30, their price differs by 2 times.

            • Arkady Shapoval

              it doesn’t matter anymore, you managed to talk about mirror Nikon and mirrorless sleepyhead. Also add here that Nikon's mirror crop is dead, like all mirror systems. The last trinket was released 5 years ago and they go into the dark for sale. An elementary new, in a store, DSLR is becoming more and more difficult to buy

        • Dmitry Kostin

          Sergey, cameras of the 6000 series, in my memory, were not inexpensive, IMHO, it was never and sometimes more interesting to buy cameras of the A7_mk2 series or even the first one.
          For interest, look at the price of a Fuji X-T4 or X-T5 or X-H2, X-H2s kit with 16-55 / 2.8 and compare with Canon Rp or Nikon Z5 with a budget lens with aperture 4.0.

          • Sergei

            I think it’s sometimes possible to compare this way, but it’s more correct to separate the flies from the cutlets, and the lenses from the cameras.

            • Alexander

              Sergey, in your place, I would not separate the lenses from the cameras, because. above you wrote
              that for this money you can take FF (full frame), and this is already a different size and weight.
              I wouldn’t refer to Olegas either - he has his own niche, in which he rages.

        • Dmitry Kostin

          And it is not necessary to immediately look at zoom lenses with aperture of 2.8.
          They have never been cheap. The price of Nikon 17-55 / 2.8 will not let you lie, even for a shabby one.
          Sony has a Carl Zeiss E 16-70mm f/4 ZA OSS (SEL-1670Z), which is a pretty good starting point. As for me, it should be enough and then buy more inexpensive fixes with aperture ratio of 1.8.

          • Sergei

            And the price of Tamron / Sigma 17-50 f 2,8 will lie. I took a new tamron for 13-14 thousand rubles somewhere in the 14th year. Approximately $300.

            • Dmitry Kostin

              Then the exchange rate was different.
              Those were good times. Now these new lenses are already worth other money.

        • Dmitry Kostin

          Olegas has been hating Sony for a long time and, in my opinion, unjustifiably.
          What's the difference on what to shoot? It doesn't matter. The main thing is that something works out and gives pleasure to oneself and others like it.
          For example, I recently bought a D40 for the D3000, sold the whale one from it and it turned out quite inexpensively, and they have the same batteries and flash drives. The cameras are light and pleasant and no one looks askance, and the result from them is very pleasing so far. One misfortune Nikon 28-70 / 2.8 completely fell ill (already the 3rd trip to the service in 3 months), just a disappointment this year.

          • Sergei

            There is a difference on what to shoot. Sometimes this process can be a real torment, sometimes not. But the paradox is that with a variety of cameras like D7000, D700 and D3200, the latter (for me) is the easiest to shoot with: the camera is light and comfortable, RAW is very plastic. And this despite the fact that there is no heap of functions. Sony Nex 5N no. Vision is inconvenient. The result seems to be good, but RAW is not plastic, DD sucks.

        • B. R. P.

          Yes, there are many such “specially gifted” people who believe that a global brand is simply obliged to adjust its prices to their “domestic” salary. And olegas is your prophet.

          • Sergei

            I think it's not about "special talent", but several other things. For example, Z5 costs the same (maybe even cheaper), but for photos it is much more productive. FF anyway. There is competition in the world, and if you produce this product for a high price, and a competitor sells a similar product for a low price, then the “especially gifted” as a rule buy cheaper. And stupid ones, other things being equal, are more expensive. Is not it so?

            • Viktre

              What are you speaking about?
              A6xxx, starting with a6300 - taken for video. Due to some "stupid" sales of these cameras, in fact, there would be none.

              • Sergei

                Interestingly, even Wikipedia bangs Sony:

                Sony A6500
                Disadvantages:
                Poor touch screen responsiveness
                There is no "Favorites" section in the menu, it is not possible to place the most frequently used sections and functions side by side
                Rolling shutter effect during 4K shooting at 24/30p
                Video recording time limit is 30 minutes.
                No option to lock the autofocus area during video recording
                During burst photography at 8fps, Live View displays a still image between shutter releases
                No built-in RAW file converter
                There is no headphone jack, it is impossible to control the sound during shooting
                Reducing photo quality from 14-bit to 12-bit in Continuous shooting and Silent shooting modes
                Possible overheating of the camera during long video shooting
                Automatic screen brightness change during 4K video recording
                The RAW format is used with lossy data compression, due to which artifacts may appear during post-processing of images

              • Viktre

                What does "even Wikipedia" mean?)

                Wikipedia is written by ordinary people like you or me)

              • Arkady Shapoval

                correct spelling PediWikia

              • Andy From Far Away

                About Wikipedia, what if people write it as “you or me”? “People like me or you” launch rockets into space.. do rockets fly into space or not?
                Community Wiki is a very serious community. Try to start by rewriting some article with false or inappropriate information and see what happens.
                The same applies to the diplomacy and neutrality of the statement or the lack of references to primary sources. How do you think certain individuals or corporations would like to see themselves on Wikipedia? Why don't they simply rewrite for their own benefit? Why doesn't Volodya rewrite the notes about the invasion of Ukraine, but instead try to fine WikiMedia?

              • Viktre

                “Try to rewrite” - I tried. Saw. Nothing happened, especially when it comes to not very popular articles.
                No need to try to deify Vika. With “rockets into space”, the comparison is inappropriate, anyone will not be allowed there, unlike editing the Wiki, where even registration is not needed.
