CameraStoreTV X-T2 Field Test

Recorded on the Sony a6300 and Fujifilm X-T2, but the Sony kept over heating… The Camera Store TV guys seem to strongly suggest you get the handgrip to maximize the cameras capabilities.

Prerelease X-T2 vs a6300 tracking:
X-T2 gives you more control over how the camera tracks subjects.
Tracked better than the a6300 in some cases.

    I don’t understand why the limit on 4k? 10 mins in camera and 30 mins with the vertical grip attached. Why is that? Is it because the heat generated it mainly done by the batteries rather than the sensor or circuitry in body? Which would explain the heat distribution done differently.

    • Probably heat, the multiple batteries in the grip could help to reduce battery heat by drawing energy from all of the batteries.

        That’s what I’m thinking, wouldn’t Sony benefit from a grip for the A6300 then with similar features.

            Some great tips indeed. The battery swapping bit I think was clever since it is the battery that tends to get quite warmed up during video.

            I’m surprised no one’s rigged up a CPU water cooling plate behind the LCD. Yes, it’s insanely convoluted, but really, pretty much all those other hoops A6300 owners need to jump to shoot video are just somewhat lesser insane. Even passive heat pipes to a fan & heatsink could work.

            I wonder if owners can do some legal wrangling about this issue. Probably not, but that overheating issue really negates the use of that camera for any practical video work.

            Also man man, forgot to mention, there are LED flashes already. Think you mentioned about it some time ago. A brand called, “Nova Pro” (I think it was) makes them.
