Coins for baseplate screws etc. At the right moment, a penny is priceless.
Cute but unless it has similar low light capabilities to the A7S, I don't see why folks should be upset about their previous 4k purchasing choices. The a6300's demo video didn't show anything about ISO 1600. I mean it seems fine as a handy little 4K shooter, but there seems to be other options like this available. I fail to see the big deal.
The fixation on extremely blurry backgrounds, where everything looks like it's been shot through a tank of Vaseline, is really starting to seem like a Youtube indy-film mannerism. So achingly "pretty" that it's almost kitsch now. It screams "Look! I've no money or a script, but I'm making a MOVIE!!!"
Take another look at any half-dozen of the best photographed films ever made. You won't see this effect used so excessively. If anything, deep-field is more valued for visual story-telling. No, you have to use this shallow DOF effect selectively...and for a good reason.
