New Road Test Comparison
The first road test comparison had an ad hoc mounting for the A500 which resulted in a shaky, rattling video. Also the Sony and A500 videos were taken on different days.
Using the correct mounting adaptor gives a much smoother ride. Indeed, the wide-view mounted outside really conveys what it 's like to drive a turbo-assisted car at 50 mph on a country road. Almost thrilling. This video used both cameras on the same day. The second half of the video is the A500 after the Sony; the colors are better, the resolution is better and the ride is smoother. Also I mounted a "windjammer" fur attachment to the A500 lens module (which has the mic) to reduce wind noise. A500 shot at 4K 30p, the Sony at 1080 30p; the video was rendered to 1080 30p.
