Are new(er) Sony E-mount cameras as capable as my Iphone (in challenging situations)?
I have a Sony A5100 (circa 2014) and had a first gen Nex-5 (c.2010) before that, I am interested in an a6400 but the situations I want to test are often not available in store. (...kids running around a cake in a room dimly lit by birthday candles for example)
Even with the phase detection of the A5100, this is a challenging picture . My phone however has no problem capturing it. Sure it's highly processed and lower quality but perfectly fine for preserving the memory.
Would the A6400 or other current 'compact' Sony cameras be capable of shooting in this situation? (I am not looking to go full frame or DSLR at the moment)
Phone capable of capturing lowlight action shots. Is this because of it's Back Illuminated sensor and image processing algorithms? Can new Sony compact cameras do this too?
