    Question
    I have the Sony a6500 and that's what I use for video for smaller projects.
    But this camera seems to have a lot of that jello effect. And shooting handheld on it isn't easy. I have the camera rigged out and made heavy for handheld work to eliminate that micro jitter, but I still get a large amount of jello when panning.

    Just curious to know, is this camera really bad with this jello compared to others?

    I'm not really needing to upgrade, but this jello effect is really killing me. Wondering if I should look at an alternative S35/APSC sensor camera.

    For what it's worth the a6300/a6500/a6400 (same sensor) have the worst rolling shutter in their 4K mode out of most cameras ever made. (You'll see the a6300 all the way at the bottom of the list at the link below.)

    As a very early adopter of the a6300, I noticed it right away and was blown away by how bad it was. I actually commented on it before the person below did the test and he confirmed several days/weeks later (and was shocked too).

    But with that said, it's still a very capable camera if you can control it (e.g. never use it as a handheld machine).

    Ah, that's an interesting list. Thanks

    And yeah, when not handheld or moving fast, it's perfectly fine. But I've been trying to do a lot more handheld work and it's killing my shots

    But I do love the a6400. A gimbal can help too...and moving slowly.

    If you want something very similar but with twice as good rolling shutter performance I'd check out an XT-30. You'll have to switch lens systems though if you have all sony lenses.

    If you want to stay Sony the A73 is almost twice as good rolling shutter wise as well.
