Gear Works // Sony Alpha a580 Video Tests

Yesterday my new DSLR, the Sony Alpha a580, came in the mail. It was a complete impulse buy but I needed a new camera. I love that this one shoots HD video! The downside is there is no auto focus while recording video so I will have to get used to manually focusing while recording. For most of these test videos I used the Sony Zeiss 24-70mm 2.8 lens. It's a beast of a lens because it's so heavy so trying to hold the camera steady while manually focusing was difficult. Thankfully my 50mm and my 28mm are tiny so it shouldn't be that difficult to do.
