Transport Festival 2019
As the A6300 had reached almost 70,000 images over the past few years when I saw that Sony had brought out the 6400 with ultra fast focus and time lapse added I decided to upgrade and included the newish 18-135mm lens. I'm more than pleased with the results so far and below are a few of the images shot in the first few days. Note that all focal lengths below images are 35mm equivalents ie - 18-135mm = 27-202mm.
All images are hand held unless specified.

below are some time lapses and an animated gif
So far this was the first time a tripod was used
So at the end of the first few days with the A6400 and 18-135 lens I'm very impressed. It will take me a while to get to know all the features but it focuses very very quickly and exposure is OK and the sharpness of the lens is very good. I was very pleased to see time lapse onboard.

Hassell Visit
A short visit to a local pond for a few pics with the A6400. The ducks were on strike and the owls hidden away so not much to take today.
A quick comparison between the 18-200 which I used to use all the time and the new 18-135 which is lighter and more comfortable with the A6400

2 further stills from slo-mo videos using the new slit scan plug-in for AFX
This image I took back in 1981 using a widelux pano camera which used the slit scan technique for capturing the image by panning.
It was also used in "2001 a space Odyssey" a Kubrick film.
On my way along the canal to find some blubells I noticed a duck who flew off as I pointed the camera -so I took a pot shot and the 6400 captured the flying duck

The above two videos shot using the S&Q setting one at 100 frames and one at 1 frame
One frame setting on S&Q
a much longer one at one frame setting - just like time lapse
Both above were recorded at 100 frames in S&Q and slowed 4 times in post production
The original above 12 images were shot at 1920 x 1080 and reduced for web use
