David: All right ready?
Jeremy: I don’t know. Do I look ready?
David: I might go live. We’re going to go live in three two one. Wait, hang on. Okay, we’re going to go live in 3 2 Okay, we’re going to go live in 3 2 1. We’re live Jeremy.
Jeremy: I’m taking a picture about swimming
David: What are you are you taking pictures?
Jeremy: what’s wrong with that? I’m a foot.
David: Oh Suite. Yes stream live stream.
Jeremy: Yeah, there you go.
David: thumbnail got it.
Jeremy: Got it.
David: Alright guys, we are live.
Jeremy: Do I look weird? Holy crap. I can’t even see my face.
David: That’s why you’re awesome Jeremy. You care about more about the stream than yourself. All right guys, welcome to pick the
Jeremy: Am I now?
David: stabbers. Today. We’re talking about again the Sony zv wine, which is a fantastic vlogging camera. We start talking about yesterday, but there’s so many features so many details we’re going to wrap it up today and do a little summary as well. Plus we did some research and we know what we know some good deals on how to get up to $100 off on the Sony zv1 kit. So let’s just talk about why this
David: So great. Basically it’s a vlogging camera that’s simplified and it’s perfect for vlogging because it’s everything.
Jeremy: Now, I think the number one reason why this camera so great.
David: Yes. Yes.
Jeremy: It’s not a cannon.
David: Ouch, ouch a Canon shooter. I always use Cannon. I used a vlog with the G7 x mark to flip screen this way. It worked fine. It didn’t have a mic Jack but fine
Jeremy: It has nothing to do with the
Jeremy: features. It’s only the name the name is I’ll wear it down there.
Jeremy: I said it.
David: All right fine. It’s the name. Okay, but it’s a name that is backed by amazing feature. The Sony’s eveyone is a compact camera just like this one right here. You can pretty much fit in your pocket and it’s designed for vloggers as all the features that vlogger wants the audio a flip-out three a little lights indicate when you recording it’s it’s perfect for vlogging and it’s Compact and lightweight And it’s affordable to so let’s just jump right into it. So that’s the zv1 right there. And right now it’s $100 off if you buy the kit. So this is how it works. You guys do it before June 28th. So it comes out June 11. So even though you can wait until when it comes out and in order, you’ll still get this price, but basically right now the price that you see on Amazon. The seven 49.99 so 750 that is the discounted price because if you wait until after June 28th, it becomes 7 9999. So now if you want to save $100 you’re going to need to also buy the accessory kit if you buy the accessory kit right now, it’s 848. Normally it would be 948 without the promotion. So the accessory kit is pretty much it includes the That but also includes a 64 gigabyte high-speed SD card and it has this vlogging vlogging stick, which is great because it acts as a extension which is good because sometimes people might realize the lens is not wide enough you have this extra tension gives you a little bit more wider field, but it’s also a remote to and it can control start of recording stop the recording take pictures zoom in zoom out and there’s a seat one button which you can program to do whatever you want by default it turns off. Off and on the book K mode, which is free suite and of course like you see in this picture right here. You can set it down and make it a tripod a table tripod. So pretty cool, right Jeremy.
Jeremy: You know what? I just realized one thing. You know how the LCD is flip on the seal left left, right?
Jeremy: So whatever keep looking at LC instead of the lens well with the kind of weird is it close enough
David: Yes, it does.
David: No, it actually does matter and this is something that you’ll if you want to be a good logger, huh? Sorry for people that aren’t good
Jeremy: Don’t forget screen.
David: vloggers. But okay, let me take that back not a good logger. But if you want to really engage with your audience and you want to really look them in the eye and look at them, you have to look at the lens
Jeremy: Look at the lamp.
David: you have to exactly like I’m looking at the lens right now because I’m engaging with our viewers, but technically Jeremy you don’t look at the lens right your
Jeremy: Well, I
David: Get your screen. So the viewer. Is he the side profile you yeah.
Jeremy: I’m out of time do tutorials on Photoshop. So I had to look into my screen.
Jeremy: So it will be weird by looking at
Jeremy: screen it but I’m doing Photoshop, so
Jeremy: I don’t know. That’s just me.
David: Yes, but that’s extremely good point. In fact, one of the most popular bloggers on Youtube Casey neistat, if you guys know who he is, he’s he’s very he exposes. This is very clear about it. Basically he wears sunglasses when he’s vlogging and that way when he’s looking at the screen we can’t tell
Jeremy: You don’t know about that.
David: right. You can’t tell what he’s looking at, which is great. But now I see I kind of think wearing sunglasses we move what you trying to It by looking into the camera my being engaged right? Because when you have the same classes, they can’t see your eyes. Anyway, so in my opinion, you’re a little bit less engaged if you have sunglasses because II communication
Jeremy: Yes shoe.
David: is really strong. And I think that’s one thing that vloggers can really take advantage of because they can look directly into the camera and talk to the audience. Yeah, that’s kind of freaky. That’s creepy. Yeah, but that’s a very good point because new vloggers when they start Looking on the side. It will be a little bit kind of distracting for the viewers. But once you get used to it, you want to glance at the the side screen just so that you know the framing and you’re in focus and you should be good to go from there.
Jeremy: It’s very good on them when you have to do is dreaming of locking because I used to speak in front of people in
Jeremy: front of people in a group of people
Jeremy: if there’s a big of a group that I picked like left one person in the middle one person and that one person every time I turn sooner corner or
David: Hm. right
Jeremy: angles. I look at this in person so I don’t get dizzy because if you see
Jeremy: it’s I don’t know you’ve been there before but you see like looking at
David: Yeah, yeah.
Jeremy: different people you somehow got
Jeremy: so I do that but when it comes to looking at
Jeremy: Camera, I like honestly, I don’t know what I’m looking at some time. I just looking less even look my Sony right now.
Jeremy: I am actually looking into not in the lungs but the Sony logo it back of the lens.
David: Haha, yeah.
Jeremy: but I get dizzy looking at it.
Jeremy: Just you know, if 10 seconds. I’m sorry II fine very second or even a minute that I got to love the way
David: It takes practice Yeah,
Jeremy: and then looking from the back.
David: Yeah, it takes practice guess it’s just like talking to another person a real life, right? You’re kind of looking at their eyes, but periodically you look away or you’ll look somewhere else slightly, but you don’t notice it it becomes second nature. So you do you do want to look into lens when you’re vlogging and nice thing about the Sony being flipped out this way versus like other cameras that flip the lengths the screen up or down is that on the side? It’s a little bit less obvious. Me if you’re looking at the screen as on the side, it’s less obvious that if you’re looking up at the screen, right because look at me right now
David: that I’m looking up at the screen, right? It’s very obvious or if I’m looking down at the screen is also very obvious now. I’m looking at the camera. So this is why I want to now if I look to the right a little bit it’s not as bad. I mean, it’s still bad, but it’s a little bit better than looking up looking down right look up you see more of your nostril your chin.
Jeremy: How about later now? Like hey, how are you guys doing?
David: Yeah, you look great Jeremy. Yeah, but the flip out screen in this case. The reason why it’s so great is because now you have the room to have your microphone up here. Of course, the microphone on the zb1 is really good the built-in one and also comes with the built-in dead cat here. Well, not built in but included that you can enable or disable the day cat but because the screen is slip on the side if you wanted to add an external microphone there. I believe on this side here. There’s a hot shoe for your microphone to be attached and normally with a camera like this. Of course, I don’t have a hot shoe. But if you were to put a hot shoot it would block the screen. So definitely it won’t work out. Well if you had to screen this way, that’s why having a screen flip decide is so great for vloggers.
Jeremy: This is no good.
David: Yeah, that’s definitely not good for vlogging to what I really.
Jeremy: Now I wake you is how to add that audios it work does EV one because I
David: It’s really good.
Jeremy: shot with with the Alex one before and I just say audio sucks big time.
David: Yeah. Yes. Yes the audio on the ZD 1 is really good because it’s designed as a directional microphone. It’s a it has a three capsule microphone and let me actually show you a better picture of it in the product here. And yeah, so if you look right here it says design for even better audio so you got these three little capsule. So they’re let me read the blurb.
David: I think you know I can’t guarantee that. I know the answer to that but I think they might work as a ray and because sound travels linearly they can detect the direction of the sound and filter out the sound that doesn’t flow in that direction. That’s my guess but I’m not a sound engineer so I can’t be sure but here this is a blurb that Sony says you can capture clear vocals. Even when shooting in a crowd the cameras unique directional three capsule might gathers clear sound. In front of the camera ideal for movie shooting so it doesn’t really tell you that technical of it. But from all the reviews that I’ve seen of this camera. The audio is really good. It’s good enough where I would say, I’m happy to use it vlogging without external microphone. It’s that good. And if you add the windscreen AKA dead cat, which is great because it’s attached to that pops onto a hot shoe and it’s included with the camera. This eliminates almost all the noise from wind. So pretty much you have a great
Jeremy: I just
David: setup. That’s just yeah like that. So this I mean this camera does EV one can fit in your pocket you pull it out and it’s perfect for vlogging is get the flip out screen. It’s got the good microphone. It’s perfect. I mean, it’s so good that you don’t even To turn it on or off you open up the screen and it turns on you just hit record. You close the screen and it turns off you don’t even need to think about turning it on and off. How cool is that right? When you’re out and shooting a vlog we simply happens. You want a boom fire up and start going so you don’t have to think about even turning it on use open the screen you’re ready to go.
Jeremy: When you say on when just the power on but now we call him right away when you fit the screen, right?
David: Correct, right.
Jeremy: You still have to hit that big red
David: will extend its ready to record.
David: That’s what I mean. And then you close the screen and it has yep.
Jeremy: Okay, that’s what it go.
David: Yeah. So this this camera is amazing. Let’s just look at some other the the product video as we just had talked about it because there’s a lot of features we went over some of the features yesterday, but really this camera is designed for creators and vloggers and the great thing about it is that it’s not Technical right? It’s a camera that just works and when you’re a Creator your vlogger, they might be extremely talented. They might have amazing camera Charisma, but they might not have the technical know-how to really dial in the settings on blogging. So that’s why some people are really found in just fond of just using their cell phone. But this particular zb1 makes it easy for vloggers without technical ability. Just turn the cameras vlogging is you got a lot of features that’s designed for vlog. G in mind really really cool. I mean, this is a camera that a lot of bloggers have been waiting for like the fast past five years and we’ve always had cameras like the G7 x mark 2 or even the one that you have Jeremy does Sony RX100 Mark 5 which is pretty darn good but it just wasn’t quite there in terms of other features, right? So really designed for videographers in mind. So pretty much this camera is a revamped version of the Sony. 100 Mark 5 which has a nice 24 to 70 lens that goes from an aperture of f11 point eight two two point eight. So it’s really good in low light but now it has a flip-out screen as a mic Jack and it has a really good built-in microphone to it’s got other modes that helps to like this is what she’s demonstrating is called Product showcase mode, which is fantastic because what happens is a lot of times when you want to demonstrate a product you want to show it to the camera. And you want it to focus on the product. Unfortunately, a lot of the cameras now they have such good I focus that will focus on you and not the product. So little features like that goes a long way with the the news Sony zb1 is really designed for creators to not have to really think they just turn it on and go another good example is the book K mode right? Actually we should did it finish the video know this is a long video.
David: So this is a lot going on here. I just try an Airy as much as I can right so we can talk about this vlogging stick, which is great because it extends the arm and you see how chicken that move it up and down. There’s a dead cat that you can just pop on when you need it. And here’s talking about how the Sound Works on the camera. Right? And this is the volcano guy went button check that out. You switch to a blurry background. Boom. Now, it’s sharp. Right? Boom now. Now.
David: I need to think about anything and then with another pushed you go to the product mode. You see how it focuses on the product and not her face. You shouldn’t have to try to cover up her face or put like anything behind the subject. Right? It just knows when you raise up the subject and it’s got I focus and the focus is really good. Look how she hides and she jumps into the shot. It focuses right on her really fast. And you see how his face is lit and when he goes out, it’s still focus on his face because the auto exposure is Design for the face in order to lock into the face and always expose her face it forgets about the rest of the screen which is terrible as a traditional videographer and terrible as a photographer but for vlogging is perfectly acceptable and preferred because you always want to be the star right you always want to have the light perfect on your face and that’s what this setting does for vlogging like little things like that. No other camera has because usually those other cameras are designed to take photos and video is a nap. It dot or an additional feature this camera. They actually converted as a video camera first and of course it can take picture but it’s feature is designed around video. And for example, it doesn’t have a built-in flash. And for example, there’s no EV or electric viewfinder. They took away those things to make the camera cheaper, but at the same time add vlogging feature or camera-based feature to make it really good for vloggers, so Finally a small pocket up 0.2 camera that has all the features of lager with need so really that’s what
Jeremy: I want to have the highest you can still trigger off camera flash
David: TV One. I believe it does but I believe it
Jeremy: though. In that get there will be a lot of fun.
David: does but I’m not a hundred percent. Sure. That’s actually Google that after after we watch this video. I would imagine it should because otherwise it would be kind of sad to be honest.
Jeremy: Because if this is for the Fockers then unless they will not use flash.
David: Yeah. Right, but if it’s if there’s a hot shoe already you still want to actually have the ability to put on the flash. Right? Actually the way we can find out is if we look at the accessories and if there’s a flash in the accessory line up. It should work. We’ll have to look it up. But I think it makes sense to be able to use Flash. Don’t you think Jeremy?
Jeremy: Hard to say really now today. We don’t know what the Russians only
David: Majin Buu
Jeremy: take so you never know.
David: Yeah, well, it would be nice. It would definitely be nice to be able to use this one camera. They had the flash although I kind of don’t really think I would care for a flash because you’re traveling right you’re traveling right and you just want to shoot and document your day. You don’t have to pull up Flash and add a flash picture. I think the fact the fact that it’s such a small compact camera that does everything especially focus on vlogging but also can take pictures. It’s just perfect. I mean, yeah just like that Jeremy.
Jeremy: Reason I bought this why off. Well, I actually almost got every single series hours 100 from 1 2 3 1 2 4 5 & 6 most of them are broken except for this one because I use this or got stolen you don’t want
Jeremy: because but for the generation to this is Mark to the reason I really want this want to get one because I
Jeremy: camouflage. This is the be sighs Alex won.
Jeremy: This is the only apparent that allow a point-and-shoot to use Manual of camouflage, which I’ve messed up. A lot of other people’s camera with.
David: right cuz
Jeremy: That you love my for. Oh, no worries. I got this. I got a mop too.
David: Nice. Yeah, I would love to know if that if this is e v 1 can trigger off camera
Jeremy: I just want that to go up.
Jeremy: you can have your most expensive camera gear lighting whatever I use a point and shoot off camera flash and do pictures that out. I’ll do you so that’s what I want is
Jeremy: the time.
David: Yep, they’re talking about the skin tone here. There’s also a beauty mode to that makes the skin really soft and there’s like a low mode and there’s a high mode.
Jeremy: young people they’re good skins and I
David: Yeah. right
Jeremy: saw it YouTuber which is like a 60 something years or so photographer
Jeremy: who also talks about the CB1.
David: Yep. Yes.
Jeremy: the CB1 say the Skins moving doesn’t help it one bit.
David: He’ll make it look smooth, but then there’s some some parts that have the
David: have the natural wrinkles, right? Yeah, it’s actually really weird is this like you just have plastic surgery but not completely plastic surgery halfway done.
Jeremy: Yeah, that g is moving thing is a Young Generation game not enough
David: It’s just be pure and simple this embrace the wrinkles. Let it add character to who you are show your knowledge with the age
Jeremy: Be rusty.
David: embrace all the wrinkles on your face. Let them identify your age and your wisdom with your wrinkles.
David: So it see you can use the external mic right? And you notice that both these extra Mike’s don’t have any wires because you can attach it to the multi it in. a shoe so
Jeremy: Okay, you know what, I think will work. I saw the center point of
David: yeah. Right.
Jeremy: It’s is the standard its traditional
David: It’s traditional.
Jeremy: so it work.
David: Yeah. Oh, yeah, and here’s a grip you see that’s the new grip and that’s the old grip. I believe the new grip is great.
Jeremy: Oh, no.
David: Yeah and look you can change the angle really easy. So it’s very flexible. And you got the zoom ability right on the remote. You can start recording you can take a picture you can turn on this the bulk a mode or you can reassign the book a button to another functionality and you can even put it down table as a table tripod. Oh, yeah, there’s image stabilization on this camera to it’s not the This one because it’s actually in body image stabilization, but it doesn’t have the in cat in lens stabilization that a lot of cameras have like for example the M50 here. Well if it is a bad example, but like some of the best cameras that have good stabilization basically they have in body image stabilization and they add the lens image stabilization together to get like six point five stops of image stabilization, whereas this camera only has the image. Realization in body, so it’s not that great. Although you can add some also some Digital Image stabilization to so it helps a little bit more but it’s not the best meet an ablation image stabilization, but it’s pretty darn good pretty darn good.
Jeremy: I’m going to get it now.
David: So when does it come out? Do you know Jeremy?
Jeremy: Is June 11, right?
David: Yep, June 11 and if you order before June 28th, you get the special pricing that we talked about link Down Below on Amazon for it and in
David: July guess what comes out?
Jeremy: I don’t know.
David: So in July, there’s going to be an upgrade to the software so that you can use the zv1 as a webcam without
Jeremy: Eli up with adults
David: its summer. This is summer 2020.
Jeremy: So how do you know it’s July?
David: I’m guessing.
Jeremy: Only way to get information from July.
David: Okay, good call good call you caught my bluff. So sometime is summer 2020. There will be a feature where you can just get the USB cable plug into your computer and it works as a webcam. You don’t need to buy any adapter. Like the popular adapter people have to buy is like the cam link or k which is normally like a hundred bucks. But right now with the current health pandemic going around people are price gouging this like crazy they’re going for Did $20 here on eBay I’ve seen them for four hundred dollars, but with the zb1, you don’t need anything like this because with the software upgrade you can get a USB cable plug into your camera plug into your computer and it functions as a really high quality webcam. So pretty cool considering that the fact that it has all that and it’s price really well too. We should actually talk a little bit about the pricing right now in addition to the Savings you get now but even on the regular price, it’s pretty good. Right Jeremy.
Jeremy: Yeah, I mean if this camera is based on the outside Alex 100 line if you ever followed I was 100. They’re always from like $1,000 range or even more.
David: Yes, yeah.
Jeremy: So if I remember right when I get my Alex 100 mile 5 which is what this camera is based on that camera when
Jeremy: Alex my first run 12 or 1300 something like that.
David: Yep. No, no. No, it’s a little bit reduce. Right? So now they have like a thousand
David: dollars, but it’s on sale for 848. I think this sale just started because Z V1 is Guy announced.
Jeremy: Yeah, so it’s always a go thousand dollar punish it in. I think someone is the first one or oh, I mean it’s the first one who make videos expensive ownership, which is the Alex ammonia Series.
Jeremy: So if you look at their previous pricing and then look at the egg the c v 1 then oh, wait special price 749
Jeremy: 749 not that bad.
Jeremy: Yeah, that’s a will find out missing.
David: Yeah, so so this this is the the RX100 Mark 7 right which has a crazy
Jeremy: Mark 7
David: zoom lens, right? It’s a 70 to 200 but the the zoom aperture isn’t that great which means it’s not very good in low light because I believe it goes from it starts at to eight but it goes up to like a 5 6 or something.
Jeremy: five six is five six.
David: Yeah, which is okay for photos if you have a lot of light, but honestly, I am in love with the current 24 to 70 that’s on the RX100 5 because that one has a picture of one point eight two two point eight, which is so much better in low light even though you don’t have to extend the reach of
Jeremy: oh, yeah, I mean I said we keep my
David: reach of going to 200 millimeter.
Jeremy: lens at 24 millimeter at 1.8 set it around 1600 ISO turn on the dynamic
Jeremy: range optimize it to level 4 level 5
Jeremy: I cash anything in the like at night time or whatever is good.
David: Yeah. yeah, yeah necessary another good
David: point because I people say well we have cell phones that are really good right now. Does it make sense to buy something like the zv1 for vlogging?
Jeremy: A lot of people don’t realize that yes when you take your picture on iPhone and you watch view your page
Jeremy: or an iPhone. It looks good.
Jeremy: Bring that picture over to your 27 inch monitor desktop or whatnot and open now again and look at the
Jeremy: picture again and see what you got.
David: Yes, you have a you have a muddy array of pixel because their estrogen is a very high with video. It’s a little bit better because video is still 1080P or 4K whatever record and the Codex on the iPhone 11pro. Max is actually really good or 11pro or even iPhone 11 is really good. But when you look at the zv1 the quality is still much better than even the best cell phone right now and the reason for that. It’s because the ZD 1 has a one-inch sensor, so you have a bigger sensor
David: So you have a bigger sensor. That means it’s better for low light and also you have a very good lens the lens has aperture 1.8 it is widest. So you just have a lot of light coming in. So this camera is yeah.
Jeremy: four this camera sensor you can print out
David: Yeah. Mmm. Yes.
Jeremy: You can print out a 16 by 20 inches big not a problem or even bigger
David: Mhm. Yes. Yeah, yeah.
Jeremy: 24:36 it work to okay.
Jeremy: iPhone picture.
David: You can still do it, but definitely won’t look as good.
Jeremy: No, no, it won’t look as good
David: Yeah, yeah.
Jeremy: It would be all muddy and then call me old man, but that I got to call this V with that. I talked to a lot of younger generation is there was a I wish
Jeremy: been where I’ve my iPhone and I would
Jeremy: like okay, this is just selfish. And then why are you calling me selfish? Well for once when you take images basically last for the Next Generation to come so imagine the Next Generation all you they have is those iPhone picture which is all muddy.
Jeremy: Right. So later on when they’re 16 K imagery and then you have an iPhone pick and then you have an iPhone pick How would that look?
Jeremy: How would that look?
David: it would look even worse they look
David: looks today because you’re comparing
Jeremy: So as a photography without a fee we
David: the standard.
Jeremy: are there to treasure our memory of moment currently and save it for the
Jeremy: next Generation. But the Next Generation has much higher display. And then yeah, we give them s***** picture to for the higher display. Why?
David: Well to be honest, it’s kind of like right now when you look at photos
Jeremy: people only care about right now
David: when you were a baby, right?
Jeremy: people only care about white now. That’s the problem.
David: Yes well, but at the same time we are subjected to the same thing our parents did to us, right but they didn’t have a choice because they took pictures on Old film. So your baby picture at my baby picture that they probably look oxidized and they look sepia tone.
Jeremy: Yeah, they have no choice
David: Yeah, right, but now with that we
David: have a choice right to document your baby right now you and your wife can decide to use an iPhone or to use something that has high quality like
Jeremy: It’s ways is about selfless and
David: this e B1.
Jeremy: selfish. That’s the choice.
David: Well, it’s also about convenience to you always have your cell phone with you. But if you can have a zv1 with you to get even better quality, it’s Captain
Jeremy: It’s a simple process behind that it
David: Faisal ends.
Jeremy: has nothing to do with years. Is this just what are you doing for? Someone else? What you doing for your next Generation? I mean obviously you can do have kids
Jeremy: or anything. There’s our people had kids human goes on. We have next Generation like it on
Jeremy: you have no kids generation still move on.
Jeremy: Okay, we go back go back go back.
David: Yep, great.
Jeremy: I want to see the house shoes.
David: The hot shoe right here.
Jeremy: Not that’s one. Yeah, wait a minute.
David: So it’s actually well. It’s so neat. Remember Sony proprietary hotshoe. Is that the same one you have?
Jeremy: Mmm, slightly not the same. It looks more depth, but it should work. It should work.
David: Let’s see if let’s see if a flash is
Jeremy: It’s a new general.
David: one of the accessory for this camera.
Jeremy: I really doubt it.
David: I don’t see it. Oh, you’re right. It might not work. Let’s just do a Google search Sony zv1 Flash.
Jeremy: Okay, that just smile a couple points on this camera for me if it doesn’t work.
David: You can be creative. You got you gotta be good sized sensor. You have a shallow depth-of-field lens with why aperture your okay low light. You don’t need flash bring an LED light with you.
Jeremy: No, I want to off him a fast with the point in s***. That’s what I want to do.
David: You want to mess with people?
Jeremy: Yes, I do that when I go to
David: let’s hey there should be oh, oh wait. No, there’s flash mode. Look you see that here. We got flash modes. There you go. So you got Auto we have flash on slow sync rear sink.
Jeremy: I want to watch the same speed on this step.
David: here so here right here our unique multi interface shoe offers incredible flexibility to add lights microphone and much more not only does it support the standard koshu accessories and flashes, but the interface also allows you to add high performance audio adapter such as the ECM – xys t1m stereo microphone with
Jeremy: Yeah, I know.
David: the power available directly from the
Jeremy: Yeah, you can see it but then
Jeremy: But then for the Sony Hoshi, I think it works the same with this one. It has a contact point for that,
David: Yeah, let me see. Let me see.
Jeremy: we look inside.
David: Yeah, yep.
Jeremy: Right. That’s the corner point, right, but
Jeremy: But if you look inside here, you will see those multiple in there for all
Jeremy: the other Jews for like microphone
Jeremy: and whatnot.
David: Cool, so it probably works and also in the manual or rather the spec sheet. It confirms it to I think if I go up
Jeremy: Okay, now I put my toes
David: I think if I go up one here, right?
Jeremy: Now I put my toes Point into it now.
David: So you got yeah, it’s got the points back. It’s got slowest increasing and flash off. So it sounds like you can add a Sony Flash to it, but it will be quite unbalanced you imagine it just right.
Jeremy: Oh, I would not use I would not put a flash when I order a trigger on a small trigger.
David: Right. Oh, yes, my trigger will be good. But like I mean look at this camera, right? So just imagine putting a flash on top of this it will definitely out proportionate and you see how
Jeremy: No, no most further.
David: Yeah, small sugar be fine and to showcase the product mode as you want to demonstrate like right now if I wanted to show my my camera, right I put out here and you see it’s not focused. That’s because my
Jeremy: So let me show you I have that flash would I have?
David: Yeah, sure. Yeah. Yeah sure sure that but you see it. So this is my example of the product showcase mode. I want to show the camera. It’s not focused. The only way I can focus the camera is if I cover my face and then the camera focuses on my face, right? So with the products Focus showcase mode if I just hold up my camera like this it knows there’s an object is closer to the camera and you focus on that even though my eye is here.
David: Hey, Jeremy is back. All right, what do you got here? Oh wow. That’s the RX100. That’s crazy. That that that’s so funny.
Jeremy: so still when you did it, you don’t
Jeremy: hold a camera anymore. You hold it vanish.
David: You hold the flash. That’s hilarious. That’s so funny. Yeah, that’s so funny though.
Jeremy: It still work. I mean you can do a wedding with this kid you not I’m serious. But it I want just that sounds like
David: Yeah, yeah.
Jeremy: look that amazing image.
David: Yeah, I believe you. That’s pretty cool.
Jeremy: It’s pretty steady. Look the weight is I don’t know about
Jeremy: a new cv1, but the way they build a
Jeremy: But the way they build a body full of the Alex wanted to do is the is it
David: It’s pretty sturdy, huh? Yeah, that is pretty sturdy.
David: Well remember that the Z B1 has the hot shoe on the side, so it’s not right at the center to so it might not work as well in terms of balance
David: because the right you see the high shoes right here, but we’ll see rumor
David: rumor it’s a volume camera first.
Jeremy: Yeah, that’s true.
David: Photography second. So that’s also partially why is cheaper because having the evf cost money and having the pop-up flash cost money. So the eliminate those two, so they’re able to cut that down the price and again,
Jeremy: They cut down the price on the body too fast.
David: Yeah, and the body is more plastic G. So it’s not as durable as like the RX100 five what RX100 5A which
Jeremy: I hope he’s not passing body.
David: newest version.
Jeremy: Is it positive buddy?
David: It is classic. It feels plastic. That’s what people say. So I don’t know for sure but it’s not as high quality, but you’re paying a lot less right for the newest camera. That’s Tony’s releasing from the point Chute size and it’s cheaper than the existing one and especially if you compare it to like the RX-7. Wish cause $1300 when it came out. It’s really nice that this one only cost $750 with our current promotion right now. It’s pretty good deal.
Jeremy: It’s not what up fool, right?
David: No, it’s not. Yeah, totally asking for too much
Jeremy: Am I asking for too much?
Jeremy: Oh, you know what? You think they’ll have a lot of chassis for this thing?
David: Maybe it will be difficult because it has a flip-out screen.
Jeremy: Well, that’s good.
David: Unless the why chassis won’t let you flip out the screen. Hey, check out this video. It’s the same video. We’ve been seeing ha ha ha.
David: So yeah, I focus is really good keeps your face bright and clear. Oh look at the way he’s using the camera. So he yes vertical and because the
David: screen flips out that way you can actually do the vertical shooting. It’s pretty cool. But like my camera, this is Old Cannon and 50, I believe if I shoot this way if I go into the computer, I think this the video will be still horizontal whereas this
David: New zb1, there’s a gyro sensor inside the camera. So it knows when you flip it vertical and tags the footage as such so when you transfer it to a computer or your phone, it knows it’s in that rotation and this is very popular for like Tick-Tock or Instagram live videos because that orientation is important and that’s also why I recommend this grip that you can buy with the accessory kit that we mentioned earlier above right here, right? So you get the accessory kit for a 850 it comes with a grip the 64 gigabyte card and the camera for 850 and their grip is great because it’s easy to see how he he he holds the grip. It makes it easy to hold the camera
David: that way and comfortably use it.
Jeremy: different color for this camera, you know full of Walkers you more but
David: I think so. It would be nice.
Jeremy: they didn’t.
David: Yeah, well they keep trying to keep the cost down. It sounds like they are you trying to mass-produce one model limit the parts so it’s easy to make cheaper.
Jeremy: Yeah, that’s true.
David: Yeah, only one thing that I like about this remote is that it’s Bluetooth. So even if it’s not attached to the camera like you have the camera attached on a tripod you can use the remote still to zoom in zoom out
David: start videos top video take a picture and also change your see one setting which you can customize the anything you can either use it to enable/disable product showcase mode or you can use it to enable or disable bouquet mode. So it’s pretty cool. The remote is definitely worth it. If you’re getting this camera using from vlogging definitely get the moat So yeah audio they take it to the next level right? Because it’s one thing to set up like have my Sennheiser Mike here have good. Audios here good lighting everything, but it’s bulky it takes time to set up a good quality set up, but if you
David: But if you can just run and gun with a small compact camera that does everything for you that Vlogs perfectly that says a lot in one package.
Jeremy: You know that one thing that I would say almost every person complains about the Sony camera is the manual.
David: what I said the manual
Jeremy: It’s very complicated. But I’m okay. I’ve been with them like a couple years. I actually can’t nail down the menu. I know exactly where to go.
David: so there’s a pro and con to that,
Jeremy: I know exactly where to go. And what is she like
David: right? The pro is yes, if you are coming to a Sony camera and you’ve used Fuji,
Jeremy: if you never knew he’d never
David: Nikon Canon.
Jeremy: camera before you will be confused at the heck out yourself.
David: You’ll be very lost. But the pro side that is if you use a Sony camera for you’ll be right at home because it’s the same menu system the same.
Jeremy: Really only user they still kind of say that I have to go for a lot of loop to get to one place.
David: Oh really?
David: Well so far the reviews I’ve seen online a lot of Sony users are saying that it’s easy to adapt to this Sony menu. So that’s their their their could say
Jeremy: Because they’ve been music because it’s the same man you they’ll have to learn anything.
David: we’re right. That’s that’s why I’m saying that’s the pro and con, right? So the disadvantage is that it’s a Sony menu, but it’s a pro if you are using Sony cameras before you adapt it right away because it’s exact same menu as all the other Sony cameras.
Jeremy: pretty much
David: So that’s a that’s a that’s a one advantage.
Jeremy: but you think about it have so much feature features in its camera then manually tend to be baked.
David: Yeah, but well dig but speaking of
Jeremy: You can’t control that.
David: features like all the features we talked about are pretty much all the features. You want to really play with with this camera. If you’re using for vlogging, right you want to enable the Showcase mode and you want to enable the bouquet mode. That’s pretty much it. You can leave everything on auto and you should take amazing photos.
Jeremy: Yes, pretty much with camera with
David: yeah, so
Jeremy: that much AI features. There is easy just pull in although although its culture Auto white
David: that’s that’s what it’s designed for.
Jeremy: balance also everything.
David: Yeah, yeah. Yeah Auto face exposure to it, which I really like we talked about the right it always lock onto your face and it exposes for your face whether you’re going to somewhere dark or something very bright doesn’t care about the background. Your face is the highest priority to expose properly and it’s perfect in
Jeremy: Well, have you ever seen a
David: the blogging world.
Jeremy: for this camera is for creator?
Jeremy: Creator don’t mean get why exposure for everything because getting a picture in why exposure and everything is craftsmanship Creator
David: Yep. Yes.
Jeremy: is basically using tool to create the content. They create its creation not the factual video itself.
Jeremy: So it’s different and this camera
David: I agree.
Jeremy: right there is to get with all those technical part how to and just
David: Yes, exactly and you can create without having to cover your hand. Remember this old style Jeremy.
Jeremy: Yeah, I told me awhile that why people do that and it will o because the camera feature do that, too.
David: Yeah, it’s like hey, here’s my product and say wait. Why are you showing your palm? Like what does it mean? Like are you like face palming me or something, but now it’s basically because this object is too small to cover her entire face. So she’s using a pain to cover her
Jeremy: Okay, you know what?
Jeremy: I bet you even though there are some people will purchase this to do that. They will still do this.
David: Yeah, probably for a little bit until they realize I don’t need to do anymore and it looks so much better. Right like you you see the genuinely of the person by looking at their eyes, even though they’re out of focus, but it’s cool because you can see the expression you can hear them talk and see them talk while they’re showcasing the product. Whereas here you have a disconnect right? You don’t see or you don’t hear that.
Jeremy: Well, that’s what they want some time if they are responsible as brother at some moment.
David: Yeah, yeah.
Jeremy: They want to hold that product for 5 seconds. You will look at it and we see the
Jeremy: brand and they don’t want their face video distractions of the product.
David: Well, the face is not destructive is blurred out but it’s more genuine. Right? Like I’d rather see this and focus on a product then see this and focus on a project. I feel this is like amateur.
Jeremy: That’s true. That’s true.
David: Yeah. Start recording instantly. So also I love that the big button on the top is where you record and let me show you the big button again. You see that?
Jeremy: Oh, yeah.
David: The big red button that’s the record button finally a camera that makes it easy to start recording because I
Jeremy: Oh, they still have the wheel on the
David: don’t know.
David: Yes, they still do.
Jeremy: Oh, no, they don’t promising one it
David: They don’t okay, so it’s not. Yeah, I think that’s another
Jeremy: It does even my is my is on it all
Jeremy: the edge of their that’s the
Jeremy: controller app
David: Yeah, that’s the cost saving thing
Jeremy: controller app stop.
David: that it took away because they know that the consecrated of loggers. They’re probably going to be easy either using aperture priority or just auto mode.
David: In fact, I think the bouquet mode only works if you’re in auto mode, so
Jeremy: I bet most people will keep that at the wires are wires, which is 3/4.
David: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, and also yeah makes sense. And yeah for sure the other thing is this this record button mrs. So easy because look I bet you can’t find where the record button is on this camera. This is my M50. What do you think the record button is? Can you see it?
Jeremy: There’s not any wet out there.
David: Right here. Yeah, and the shutter is this big one up here man cover any to cover my face. Yeah, so shutter buttons here really small record button here and the same with my G 7x Mark to right? Here’s a shutter.
Jeremy: Copy of a copy of bass cover your face.
David: Yeah. I need to go to my face. Here’s a shutter button, right but
Jeremy: There you go.
David: the record button is right back here tiny little red dot right there. So it’s obviously an afterthought for these cameras before right the record. Is always hard to hit right here with this new zv1 record buttons right front and center love it. And then there’s also a little light here. Here’s a better view of it. This little light turns red when you’re recording which is so
David: important. Yes, like you would think okay fine. I got to flip out screen. I can see myself and I can see when I’m recording. Right? No because even if you’re in preview mode, you can still see yourself. You have to look for that tiny little red dot on the screen normally and it’s not easy to see because there’s so much going on you forget until they’re your lens retracts in and your powers off your like what’s going on and you realize You weren’t recording you were just previewing for the last five minutes. Right but now you have a nice tele light this thing will light up red. So, you know when you’re recording you don’t have to worry about making sure your recorder or not.
Jeremy: You know sometimes camera have those light and fun, but it’s full of your
David: Yeah, yes.
Jeremy: timer. That’s blank when I came back that
David: Well, that’s what they’re doing here because before that light was an afterthought for videographers, they
Jeremy: I wonder if it’s like the same thing
David: didn’t even.
Jeremy: like when you recall if you turn red and you know, if you want to tell you in a 10 second timer, there’s a blank.
David: Oh, yeah, that’s a good question. We should we should find out. Yeah, it probably would it would make sense. Yeah, and here’s the wireless control. I love that. You can set it on the table as a tripod to. Very nice.
Jeremy: Are you getting that?
David: Yes, I would definitely I would love to have it. I mean if yeah, it’s only like $100 more and it comes with the 64 gig card and it’s nice right because normally you would want to table tripod anyway, but this one is a table of tripod is also ready mode and it folds nicely and it also has that click ahead so you can change the angle of the camera. It just goes together well. And the old old story mode used to have a cable to connect to the
Jeremy: Yeah, that’s right.
David: camera. The new one is Bluetooth.
Jeremy: So let’s move. I wonder how easy for two connectors back then it has boo tube and connect
Jeremy: Then it has boo tube and connect to my cell phone for remote control. But sometimes it takes a couple try to connect.
David: yeah, I
Jeremy: Actually, no my friend who use iPhone take a boat ride because you see how it has n so they don’t know if this
Jeremy: one has an NFC is MFC.
David: yeah near field communication.
Jeremy: So I my phone has NFC to so I just touch it and connect.
David: Yeah, yes.
Jeremy: But iPhone can do that iPhone don’t have NFC.
David: yes, I can’t comment on that with
Jeremy: May I help you?
David: this camera because I don’t know either but that’s something to definitely look into and let’s see. Let’s see if there’s anything yeah one more thing. I want to show off. Is that book a moment? I know we talked about a little bit but nothing shows how good it is. And I think there’s this one demo on the website that I really love that really shows the spoke a mode.
Jeremy: No, we talked about this which is talk about this do you mean?
David: Yeah, but demonstrate we talked about the product showcase mode.
David: We need to talk about the book came over, right? so I’ll let play through one so you can see now this the Pokémon see how the background is blurred out and now
David: she goes back to the clear background with the click of a button and it compost that by two things. Right? Number one. It just is the aperture of the lens to open as wide as they can and number two it in Abel’s the ND filter if needed because like we see right now is really pretty bright outside. So it needs 2 ND filter to cut down the light if you don’t enable Any filter you probably need a really high shutter speed like wonder where that 1001 over 2000 which is okay, but for video is not ideal for video. You probably want to keep the shutter close as close as possible to about 60 frames per second or 1 over there frame rate is ideal. So normally you’re recording at 30 frames per second. You probably want to shutter of 160th. That’s just so it’s smooth and consistent but to avoid going too much faster than that. That’s why there’s any filter but all that technical. Jargon. On craziness the cool thing is you don’t need to know because this function is built into the camera. It’s one button. You want clear background you hit the button Well, normally it’s clear background. If you want the book it background you hit the button one time and you get the book it background says I’ll blow it back takes away the focus from the background more focused on you. If you want to capture more the background Say Hey, I want to show you this in the background. You want it to be more focused. Boom. Hit the button. Where’s that clear background? I can’t find it right there are background and now You can see the background. So again this cabin makes it so easy that it’s one push of a button. Whereas if I was to change it, it would take me three different I have to change the aperture enabled setting. any filter.
Jeremy: Turn on any filter.
David: Yep, and then adjust the shutter speed accordingly or I so if I need to write so there’s like four things I would have done is said here one button. Boom. Yeah. I’m okay background. So that’s is I think they have all these abilities but it’s a whole nother level to make it so easy that creators can just do it on a whim without having to know about cameras, right? That’s why a lot of creators you cell phone to take pictures to take videos because it’s so easy. It’s intuitive don’t have the tech that blocks them from creating the content that they’re good at but this
David: camera brings out back. It’s a high-performance camera that’s simple to use and designated design for videographers bloggers. Content creators and whatnot. And again, the reason for this video we want to highlight is the price right right. Now if you buy it before June 28th, you say $50 on the camera view also add the accessory kit. You save another $50. So this accessory kit is $848 right now, but if you wait until after June 28th, it’s going to be $948. So you save a hundred bucks total on the best volume camera of 2020 unless something mmm. Amazing comes out from another brand. I don’t think there would be a vlog camera is better than this one at least in this year. And I know that because I’ve been waiting for over five years for a camera like this. It’s really well-rounded and it’s quite frankly a fantastic camera for
Jeremy: And so ironically we can go out to
Jeremy: shoot anything even though he came.
David: Hopefully we should be able to Vlog in real life soon. We’ll see but for now. Yes, you are right. We can’t really go out and Vlog anything. It is what it is. So actually we started so we saw about 10 minutes. I forgot so that’s also yeah, let’s also go over some of the other specs about this. So let’s Let me ask you three wishes to you and see what are some of your favorite features of this camera Jeremy.
Jeremy: I would like I said, I like the dead cat.
David: the dead cat for the lift or for the
Jeremy: Did that cat hospital?
David: actual functionality
Jeremy: of course for the look
David: Of course Jeremy, you’re the one photographer that isn’t that technical. I’m technical equipment because you’re more of a Creator than a gear collector like me like I buy cameras because I’m excited about the the specs.
Jeremy: I’m the type that will get my hands on anything as long as I can get the result I want.
David: Yeah, or a cute looking dead cat on your camera.
Jeremy: Hey, I got a feel good to create.
David: There you go.
Jeremy: When I do my retouching I actually put on my rock and roll music and I feel good and and I don’t even think
David: Oh, yeah.
Jeremy: hand just move.
David: Yep, let’s take a look at this this video real quick. This is talking about how quick the autofocus transition like. I don’t think this is a really good selling point because I think modern cameras can do this, but basically right now I see your focus on him. You turn it over their focus on the building turned back on him focuses him. It’s pretty fast, but I think this video is a little bit flawed because what if he turns over and there’s like another human right in front is building. It’s going to focus on the other
Jeremy: no, not only that because he’s
Jeremy: basically holding it and then when
David: And not the background.
Jeremy: you turn back majority of him is in
Jeremy: the frame, so it’s actually really easy for the camera that we focus
Jeremy: back on him really fast.
David: Yeah, so this is not not a really good product or highlight of the feature, but it works. Now there’s one disadvantage to this eye autofocus this face out of focus. And it doesn’t work well in this situation and that do you know?
David: That’s when you have two people that are vlogging together. Yes, and in fact
Jeremy: Well, you know what you mean, we’re see two people to be honest.
David: and we don’t even have lot together. Like we won’t we won’t be holding a camera and we will walk together.
David: I think that’s usually when they’re like spouses or like there’s two people that really close together and actually even if their spouse is they’ll be close enough that they’re hugging that it’ll be fine. But it’s only when you’re like vlogging and your spouse or significant other or your partner that you want to block with. It’s like maybe a person a little bit of a distance behind you right then the cameras going to try to balance Focus between you and the other person and that’s where it doesn’t.
Jeremy: Well, that’s why I said I mean you think about it. I see their team of company who have
Jeremy: like the whole team of bloggers who
Jeremy: you know work individually at the same time work together, but they
Jeremy: always have their own camera and blog about for themself and you know for
David: Yeah, exactly.
Jeremy: once I think it’s business kind of decision that you know you if you buy or sell your bit more money second is
Jeremy: technically you can’t video blog to person because I have the camera is going to capture like whose morality
David: Right, right.
Jeremy: right and
Jeremy: if you see some of the creator that has like a team-up thing when you go out or they have a third camera
Jeremy: person from an angle shooting them rather than blocking them self. So I don’t think this kind of blocking think was for like multiple people. It’s only thing a person only
David: Yeah. That’s a very good point. It doesn’t make sense why you would want it. I just happened to watch another YouTuber that I reviewed this camera that talks about it in that fashion. It made sense why it’s a feature that doesn’t work. But then like you said, you’re a medic who we want to feature any way because if you have two people vlogging, it’s probably best if they’re each vlogging themself and have a third person vlogging them, right?
Jeremy: after they cannot make it works which camera was at a habit so much. I mean it’s only a seven out to have that and no one has it so you could actually take a picture of that person and say video camera. That’s your face detection.
David: Oh, yeah, two people.
Jeremy: Okay, and yeah, you can set Power T. This is number one. This is number two. so they do have that system, but do
Jeremy: will they in pie on this? I don’t know.
David: I doubt it because I seen people testing it out and that’s one of the things they complained about.
Jeremy: because I do that all the time during the wedding if I basically hey I was
Jeremy: asked to write can take a picture of you will quick this is safe for my you know of detection of you. So all that my priority number one
Jeremy: king and then the gum is a second. So whenever the frame goes through
Jeremy: and then if their face in it, it’s
Jeremy: goes to the right first and
David: Oh, that’s so cool.
Jeremy: wait a second.
David: Dang it Canon Canon.
Jeremy: Can I don’t have that?
David: Never gave me that feature.
Jeremy: They never had that so only has it.
David: That’s really cool feature. Even cell phones have it right because cell phones have smile detection. So if they see like but they don’t
Jeremy: Yeah, but they don’t know who.
David: So if they see like but they don’t care because cell phones have the advantage of having a small sensor. So everything’s in Focus. So as long as there’s like a couple of people in Focus that use increase the aperture. So more people are in focus. Easier. But anyway, Sony has a nice feature that I don’t think they’re going to bring you to this camera because I think people complaining about it. But who yeah, I doubt there majority of loggers were Vlog with two people. Anyway, now there’s one thing that people have talked to me or have mentioned about this screen. Is that the screen although normally it’s decently bright. It’s not bright like a cell phone, but it gets worse when you start recording in 4k the brightness of the screen turns down. Yeah, probably to preserve battery or
Jeremy: because of batteries
David: can yeah, most likely so and to make sure it doesn’t overheat as quick. So that’s one disadvantage.
Jeremy: Wait, hold on in bright light.
David: So that’s one disadvantage. Yeah. Yes.
Jeremy: the LCD will we are? That’s a block and why I wonder how Because that’s the point with this. That’s why I want my will find it because it bright. I can’t see s*** on this.
David: Yeah, it’s okay. It’s not as good as a good cellphone. So even with are we recording a 1080P or in preview mode? It’s bright, but not bright like a cell phone. So you’ll have some problems seeing the screen in super bright light.
Jeremy: Um some of those video that doing
Jeremy: you’re not a bright Sunday we in
Jeremy: California you have you seen the California Sun shining on you?
David: Yeah, it’ll get pretty
David: won’t get that hot, but it gets bright in California. So yeah, this one disadvantage and you know to make it even worse if you’re out in bright sunlight. What do you normally have on your eyes?
David: And sometimes if you’re fancy you have polarized sunglasses.
Jeremy: What’s the difference between powers and glasses and normal sunglasses?
David: So polarized do you know how polarizer filters work on the camera
Jeremy: It’s kind of animal ate something,
David: Yeah, so basically polarization has to keep a simple it’s a polarization polarization filter right so usually for example when you have glare reflection there’s a certain wavelength that bounces to the camera that’s reflective so by using a polarizing filter you can turn a little bit to counteract that wavelength so you don’t see that
David: glare so what polarizing glasses basically it has a polarizing filter that’s in a perfect orientation that eliminates glare for when you look at like the water or bright shiny objects.
David: So that’s why expensive sunglasses are polarized.
Jeremy: Oh, I know what you can ask. So some of those people who were those polarized sunglasses when they look at this LCD.
David: It looks like it’s off.
Jeremy: They cannot see it. Yeah.
David: This is the one problem with the zv1 that no advert. No other camera I’ve ever seen has this problem like yea even with the
Jeremy: No, not with just one. This one’s fine.
David: old Sony RX100 is fine only with the I think they went with some cheap zv1. great LCD or something, but
Jeremy: You said it in the lower the cost?
David: They did. So one YouTube reviewer has amazing sunglasses. I think he’s used in Maui Jim sunglasses, right? He looks at it through his sunglasses that are polarized and he can’t see the screen. The screen is off. Like what’s takes out the sunglasses you can see the screen and it doesn’t happen with all sunglasses. I think he says with Oakley sunglasses. It doesn’t have the problem even though they’re polarized Oakley. But inherently, there’s a problem with the screen because the screen doesn’t have no other screen has this problem now there’s a way of
David: Found it and people say that if you buy a screen protector to put on the screen, it solves a problem, but it has to be a special screen protector not all screen protectors are the same. I think some of them have a polarizing filter some of them don’t so now you have a polarizing filter on the screen that kind of have two polarizing filter on your sunglasses. So therefore and you can still see the screen it’s crazy. It’s crazy. But that’s one disadvantage of this screen is that it’s weird if you have a polarized sunglasses.
Jeremy: Or just don’t wear sunglasses.
David: Yeah, don’t wear sunglasses. But again, if you’re outside vlogging a lot of bloggers wear sunglasses, so it’s kind of
Jeremy: Yeah like that when you said they’d look at a screen anywhere sunglasses they can tell you look in the lens or lens or the LCD.
David: Yeah, right.
Jeremy: All right.
David: Yeah, so they can either downgrade to non polarized sunglasses or try their luck with the screen protector on the camera. But still I feel like that’s something that Sony goof it up on because no other Sony camera has his problem. Why now? Why would you introducing a camera where the screen is so important for vlogging that you have this problem?
Jeremy: Well to keep the price low they have
David: I don’t know.
Jeremy: to find alternative more affordable parts to put this thing together.
Jeremy: So it is it is
David: So it is what it is. So those are like the two columns. Well, mainly that’s the one column that I’ve seen with this camera. Is that the screen isn’t that bright when you’re out shooting 4K and if you have polarized sunglasses You might be out of luck. Look at the screen through your polarized sunglasses.
Jeremy: most likely but
David: Yeah. Okay now let’s talk.
Jeremy: camera for f******
David: Yeah, overall. It’s amazing. It’s really the dream camera for vlogging except for that small issue that I mentioned. Oh battery life, isn’t that great either because it uses the same RX100 batteries. Although it optimized to be more efficient with those batteries. I think some tests show that you can record it for Kay. 60 frames per second for about 15 minutes on One battery. So it’s pretty decent although the batteries are small. They’re small so you can fit them in the pocket. They’re lightweight and you hold it this amount of charge 50 minutes, but
Jeremy: Well, I think that they don’t do like
David: minutes, but they’re expensive.
Jeremy: a constant is continuously shooting.
Jeremy: They just feel like maybe ten 5minutemax and that’s pretty much it.
Jeremy: So that’s not a problem for them.
David: Okay, and also the other thing that I want to gripe about is that it has it has a mini micro USB port still in 2020. I really wish everyone could just go to USBC. It’s so much easier.
Jeremy: Do I have want you to let me see what I got here got it is Michael guess
David: Yes micro USB he is all camera.
Jeremy: because oh, yeah.
David: I mean it’s okay for cameras that are five years ago to be micro SD. It’s not okay in my opinion to have a camera in 2020 be micro USB still. I mean, what are they trying to do to save a few bucks and reusing some of these parts because it might like go Julian of them to using other cameras for the next ten years. I don’t know man, or maybe they’re reusing the cable right because they have to include youth micro USB cable. They will cost. More to include us USBC cable. Oh, maybe USB C is a standard that they have to pay more to use. Whereas Mike and USB is lower-cost standard. I don’t know.
Jeremy: Who knows?
David: But that’s one thing I don’t like about it. It doesn’t it also does it has a microphone headphone microphone input jack, but it doesn’t have a headphone monitoring Jack which I think would be nice to have but definitely not something a lot of Critters care for
Jeremy: Now they would not care hatful model block is don’t really need it.
David: yeah, again, you’re aiming for the people that are out there on the go. They’re out there with Krugers Matic energy. They want to capture the moment. You want to tell your story they have exciting life. They want to catch that plane catch that bus jump out of the plane ride the bus. I don’t know. They have their thing. They don’t have time to automarketer. Hello. Check check how the audio no, man. There it just open the screen and the button. cameras already on hit the record How you doing? Welcome to Vlog today. We’re going to fly and jump out of this aircraft in 30 seconds. Let’s go boom right there gonna be
Jeremy: and ends up full camera
David: Boom right there gonna be all into it. Yes, and we’ll pull the camera because the camera is cheap and they make like a thousand dollars per video or maybe ten thousand dollars per video. So anyway, anyway vloggers probably won’t need the audio headphone monitoring Jack like we discussed. So it’s got the nice zoom lens built-in really nice 24 to 70 lens F1 point a to f 2 .8 optimized for the camera. So it’s Compact and it’s actually really good lens. It’s a Zeiss lens. You heard that bran
Jeremy: Insight yeah horse
David: Yeah, they make high quality glass and they’ve always been making lens for Sonia point-and-shoots and I love them really good quality glass sharp good color good contrast.
Jeremy: I got two of those size lens for my a seven hours.
David: Yep. The cat with the remotes here. Oh, you should note that tripod mount is not centered.
David: Yeah, maybe.
Jeremy: Doesn’t matter I guess.
David: It matters if you want to try to open the battery door when the camera is on the tripod hotplate, right?
Jeremy: Oh, so if they if you put that onto the stand you probably can’t change
Jeremy: bear until you remove it, huh?
David: Yeah, even with the little yeah, even with this little stand right because
David: oh wait. Yeah because the batteries on this side, right?
David: Yeah. So yeah, if you put it on there it’s going to block the battery. Like if it was in the center, you might be able to get lucky and squeeze the battery out if you have like a really small tripod plate, but
Jeremy: Well, they can if you look at where the position of about this the lens
David: the LEDs
Jeremy: blocking you can put in different
David: Yeah, yeah. So anyway, that’s when yeah, but who
David: So anyway, that’s when yeah, but who cares right also, they removed the mode dial that a lot of people complain about. So like there’s a more button. The motel is nice because you can either change your like Auto aperture priority shutter priority manual really quick, but here they expect me But here they expect me to just be on
Jeremy: Do you have a function bullet in the
David: auto mode or recording mode. Yeah.
Jeremy: back is tooth is still right now.
David: Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, and they have buttons in the back right here function and then you
Jeremy: Function there you go. Yeah, I do that all the time.
David: to wear.
Jeremy: I customize the function buttons. So all the stuff I use on there.
David: Yep, so he still has that. Yeah, I mean we’re you right now we’re nitpicking all the little details right but it is a very fine vlogging camera anybody that does consecration. I highly recommend it. I think they’re going to enjoy a lot unless they’re really like Tech Gadget nerds that have like an m 50 or like a Sony A7 Mark 3 or some nicer high quality gear, but when you’re out and about and you’re vlogging, this is amazing camera, and if you’re starting a YouTube channel, or Starting live streaming. You’re starting any kind of content creation. it might not be the best at photos by still those photos is so there’s a little bit of everything frankly. This is a camera that a lot of YouTubers have been waiting for for the last five years. So trust me as a person has been youtubing for over three years. Now. I really love this camera. I highly recommend it and if you buy an Amazon if you don’t like it, there’s always a great return policy you want To order this soon because it’s releasing very soon, June 11 2012. So order it now, so you’re like one of the first one to place to get it in fact, if you wait even a couple more
David: days, you might not be one of the first one to get it and there’s a vlogging world. You can get a lot of a lot of attention by just doing a review on this camera because it’s very popular on YouTube. If you want your video to go viral. There’s a potential of it going viral of you talk about this camera and
Jeremy: Oh, yeah.
David: talk about how it’s great your YouTube career, so really cool camera, I think this camera will possibly be the best vlogging camera of 2020 and Beyond and Beyond I mean, you know, I’m a cannon fan and I like the R5 that’s
David: going to be like a $3,500 camera and it doesn’t it doesn’t do it justice and this camera can fit in the pocket was our 5 cannot so for vlogging. I think this is a camera to get
Jeremy: Yeah, I’m getting does for replace my webcam as well. We’ve when I can’t go out I could record stub with that.
David: yeah, and when we start shooting I do live stream in person on set outside. It’s gonna be awesome.
