4K UHD Aerial Test with Sony A6300

Testing the Sony A6300 on DJI Matrice 100...

Shot in Super35 4K mode with 25 fps, interpreted for playback as 30p (20% speed increase). Original file available as download on Vimeo if you have an account there. Please switch player to full screen mode and choose highest available resolution by clicking on the "HD" symbol.

Some wannabe" tech-gurus" say, the A6300 suffers from strong moiré as it has no 4K optimised low pass filter. I can not confirm this as long as you use the Super35mm 4K mode which downscales the 4K from approx. 6K.

I also read complaints about overheating issues and short battery life from people, which mean this prohibts "Pro" use. Well, let me tell you that not every "Pro" use needs recording times significantly longer than 20 Minutes per take or hours of battery life. The A6300 has priority for lightweight and compactness and if you need longer recording time, use an external power supply on the USB port. It will also keep the camera cooler as the internal battery will not add heat.
