Hey guys, But let’s go ahead and unbox this year. On the side of the box, we just get some details about what it does what it has. Me can shoot 20 megapixels still images, and the sensors a 29 millimeter wide angle lens, etc, etc. abilites just do this unboxing here. So we open the box. And the first thing we get here is the manuals, which is limited warranty, and then how to use the camera and you know the tips and tricks, how to learn to use this camera to the full advantage. We open here and we’re going to get the camera itself right here.
Now we’re going to get a little controller, we’ll take a look at that in a sec. And all the cables. So this right here is the adapter. So you connect this to this, this to the wall and then this right here to the camera. We have a little extender here or now this is the HDMI so you can connect to the TV. And this is the extender, because the camera comes built in with a little USB. and that USB is long enough to connect to your computer. This will extend the the length of it. This comes with a lens hood. Put the box, throw the box away over there. Here we have the controller, which allows you to control the camera from you know, if you’re recording yourself or something like that, you can click the button, and the camera will zoom in.
You can click out it will zoom out. Now what’s interesting about this unboxing is that I decided to take out the camera and no kind of fool you guys. So you can see the recording the quality of the recording. And I didn’t play too much with the settings here, I just brought down the aperture to 2.8. And try to make it bright I could to make it match what I record. With my T three, I now will be making a video comparing this to a DSLR in the pros and cons. And but yeah, this is the controller. And then this is the lens hood right here in ase you want to see it. I’ll show you the camera in a second. I’ll cut away and show you guys that but this is how the camera the caCmera actually is focusing by itself right now. You can kind of see the camera focuses pretty quickly.
And yeah, so the quality is pretty good. And right now it’s recording at 4k. I’m not sure if I’ll upload this in 4k, so that you guys can see this part in 4k upload it into ADP. and we’re gonna switch over to the Canon so you guys can see the camera right now. Alright, so taking a closer look here at the 4k handycam, it’s a pretty nice size. It’s not too big, it’s not too small. It’s just perfectly manageable for one hand. You don’t necessarily need big hands to just hold this in one hand and it’s not too heavy. But here we have the viewfinder, we have the flip out LCD right here, you can flip and turn around here. And just so you can record at different angles which is which comes in handy.
We have this really nice lens which is made out of metal and it feels very good quality compared to the rest of the body. The rest of the body just feels like your DSLR but in a different. And here we have the lens in Case you want to see that. And it all works. Here at the bottom we have the manual button which allows you to then control the iris gain ISO and shutter speed by using this knob right here. That knob controls everything manually.
Now the battery just kind of slides and you kind of place it right here. And you kind of push it down and just kind of snaps into place and it does come out doesn’t hide like on a DSLR let’s just find because it doesn’t really. We have the start and stop buttons right there. We can switch between video and camera mode. And we have the zoom and everything right here just feels perfectly like a video camera, you can click here to take a 20 megapixel still maximum I believe you can of course change the quality there. We have these zoom and focus toggle right here which allows you to use this for different things.
So you can use this for zoom or you can use it for focus the autofocus or manual focus, you turn that on or off. At the bottom we of course have the tripod adapter so you can put this on a tripod. And this is how you release the battery. You click right here and it comes right out right here. We have the power display whitebalance night shot, and program modes. And these allow you to of course, select different things to display button just hides the display. And I’m not really going to go over this too much, it was just a quick little unboxing overview, this button right here allows you to mute the person behind the camera, which is very interesting.
Right there, we flip it out and we have the opening for the SD card which it takes up to or up to six, or you need a 64 gigabyte card, if you want to record 4k pretty much in sadly, it doesn’t have two slots, which would really come in handy. So that means you’re basically going to have to end up getting more than 164 gigabyte card, if you’re going to be shooting a lot. Because you don’t want to have to upload it into a computer or a hard drive. Right in the middle of recording, you have run out of space. This does have a mic up here 5.1 surround sound mic, and does sound pretty good. It doesn’t sound too bad, it’s not bad the audio on a DSLR.
Although on a DSLR, you can kind of like play around with it to make it sound a little bit better. But it’s a pretty good audio, it’ll record fine if you don’t have the budget for a mic, but if you are getting something this expensive, it’s always good to have a an external mic that you can use something like the zoom h1 that I use. So at the bottom here, we have the connection for the HDMI and then for the headphones. Yeah, that pretty much sums up the camera here, the panel right here, it’s touchscreen. When you first booted up, it will tell you to set the time and location so that you can, you know know the you know the time.
You can of course change the image quality sizes, the playback, I believe it’s up to 120 frames, but you have to go down in quality to I believe just regular attend ATP can change shooting modes here you have a bunch of varieties, you have effects for when you’re recording, you can play around with the mic and you can have a zoom mic, yep, you can have a zoom into the person or the thing that’s in front of the mic. I haven’t tested that out. But yeah, I’ll be making a full video on this soon. Comparing it to the DSLR that I have, and seeing what the pros and cons are. But this is it right here, the Sony Handycam 4k camera for $2,000 plus tax plus a memory card. But yeah guys, that’s pretty much it for this video, I’ll make sure to make a video of comparing this against a DSLR.
That’s mainly what I want to do. Since there’s obvious differences between the two and you know which one’s better. Is it better to buy a DSLR cheap one and get an expensive lens or is it better to just go off with this, I’ll make a whole article explaining that and hopefully run through some more of this handycams features I get some time to play around with it. thank you guys for watching.
