With Real Estate interiors you always try to make the spaces look big. Normally I would do interiors on a gimbal with a Panasonic GH5 and 7-14mm Lens.For this setup I tried the Sony A6500 combined with the Sony 10-18mm Lens. It's not a bad combo if you're into this type of stuff...

Sony A6500 S&Q 120fps Slow Motion 1080p and 1fps S&Q Timelapse
Nothing serious. Just thought I would try out the 1fps + 120fps S&Q feature on the Sony A6500 Mirrorless Camera today. Used available light indoors and out. Shot with the Sony 16-35mm F/4 Lens and Sony 35mm F/1.8 Lens. Used continuous Autofocus and shot Hand Held. Because I was shooting with mixed lighting indoors, I found the footage really hard to color balance. Since I was shooting at 120fps, I set my shutter to 1/250th which cut a lot of light indoors and shot mostly around ISO 2500. It's a neat camera, but the footage works best if you can expose properly. I found it hard to shift the exposure and color around much in post.
Sony A6500 with FotoDiox ND Throttle Variable ND Filter Canon EF to Sony Lens Adapter
Although I love many of the features of the new Sony A6500, I feel there's a lot more noise than the Sony A7SII, so shooting and grading SLOG footage would probably 'not be' my first choice. I'm currently experimenting with Profile 3 and Profile 4 right out of the camera for now.
While shooting outside with the Sony A6500 I needed to work with an ND Filter, so I decided to throw on the Fotodiox Fusion ND Throttle Lens Adapter that has a built in Variable ND. For those who are concerned about losing sharpness, I provided a few examples.
Since i'm not shooting with a totally flat image, I only applied some basic curves (contrast) and tried to adjust the white balance. The ND Throttle helped keep the shutter and aperture under control so I could maintain a shallow DOF. I believe most people will end up buying Sony AutoFocus Lenses, but if you want to adapt Canon EF to your Sony A6500, this Fusion ND Throttle is very handy. You can find the FotoDiox ND Throttle Fusion Lens Adapter available on Amazon (here).

Here's another sample where I push the image around with a whole bunch of color adjustments just to see how well Picture Profile 3 holds up in post. From my tests, I think it's a good go-to in-camera profile when you're too lazy to correct SLOG and want to minimize noise.

Zhiyun Tech Crane-M – Smaller 3-Axis Gimbal for Point and Shoot Cameras
The new @zhiyun_tech 'Crane-M' (not Crane) is a smaller gimbal for point and shoot sized cameras like the #Sony #RX100, but here with @satostudios we confirm it works with the #A6300 and @rokinon 12mm, also Sony 10-18mm lens. Enough room to balance these setups perfectly. Should be even more awesome once we get hands on #a6500 camera #Zhiyun #Gimbal #Stabilizer
