But if you truly need only one of these things (in other words, you’ll settle for internal 4K recording at identical bit rates and codecs as the other two, have better auto focus than the other two, have better 120fps HD implementation than the other two – the a7R II doesn’t even have 120fps), then get the a6300 and look seriously at Sony’s UWP D11 wireless microphone set up [B&H|Amazon] .
You know why?
Because the UWP D11 combines the best of my current favorite wireless mic, the RØDElink Filmmaker [B&H|Amazon], my previous favorite, the Sennheiser EW100 series [B&H|Amazon], along with a HEADPHONE JACK in the receiver unit that slides into Sony’s proprietary Multi Interface hot shoe eliminating the need for a headphone jack OR a mic jack in the body.
Smaller than the RØDElink, easier to set up than the Sennheiser, and with a side-mounted battery compartment that makes it quicker and simpler to change batteries than either, Sony’s wireless kit is a really pleasant surprise.
And it’s a pretty darned good wireless set up in its own right. More robust lav wire than the RØDElink or the Sennheiser, and I really like the sound (probably has more to do with how I’ve located it, underneath my shirt on my chest using Rycote Undercovers[B&H|Amazon])
Already have a wireless kit?
It turns out Sony sends audio through the micro-HDMI port, which you can monitor on an inexpensive 7” HD monitor like the lovely new Aputure VS-1 Fine HD [B&H|Amazon] , or the much more sophisticated and combo recorder unit from Atomos, the Ninja Assassin [B&H|Amazon].
That’s it! If any of you have other ways for monitoring audio from a Sony a600 or a6300, share!
