A6000 or E-M10 to replace GR?

I've never had it overheat. But I don't do much CPU intensive stuff on it like video, gaming, nor hotspotting.

The warmest I've felt it get is after a while shooting 4K video, but it has never cut out from overheating or anything. But I can certainly understand how it might potentially get real hot if you push it. Not a lot of heat dissipation possible in such a small, dense, sealed body.

Sony seems to have a lot of problems with heat and 4K video, not just in phones. A6300 and A6500 in particular have a lot of people complaining about it.

Some Sony mobile phones do a similar thing. Un-announced. Shortly after I bought my Z5 mobile a few years ago, and had taken a few photos with it, I got a message from the phone telling me a 'Highlights Movie' movie was ready for me to play. WTF?, I thought. And there it was - a HD movie contructed from my recent photos, with a sound track, music, titling, fading, and even concluding with a link to post it to Facebook. It looked pretty good too. I have let the phone continue to do this automatically now. It's very interesting to watch a visual story being crafted out of images that are usually totally banal throwaways.

The Xperia™ Movie Creator automatically creates short videos using existing photos and videos. The application automatically determines the timeline to create its movie. For example, it can take a selection of photos and videos from a Saturday afternoon outing or from a weekly, monthly, even a yearly period and create a movie for you. When this highlight-style movie is ready, you get notified.

And here's where it gets creepy:

If you log in to a Facebook account, you can create Highlight Movies from your Facebook events, featuring photos from the event, friends’ names, and more.
Movie Creator ? Sony Xperia Z5 support (English)

Sony and Olympus must be sharing some of this software.

Off topic, sorry.

Not by much - A6000 is 310/360 (EVF vs LCD), GX-85 is ~ 290, G-7 is ~ 360.

All poor by most DSLR standards, of course.

Aside from the clunky Sony menus, A6000's biggest annoyances are the poor low-light AF (only does 0-20 EV, which is pretty poor by Pentax or Panasonic M4/3 standards), the poor battery life, the limited degree of flip in the flippy screen, the proprietary Sony Multi-Interface Shoe (which limits your accessories), and the lack of either a mic socket or headphone socket on the camera. In hand, however, it works very well. Grip is good, dials and controls are easy to access, EVF is OK.

However I have never been able to take a liking to the 'personality' and feel of the A6000, unlike the other NEX I've owned. (NEX-5, NEX-F3, A5000, A6000). Hence I rarely take the A6000 out with me.



The G7 may also be a good Panasonic M4/3 option. Cheaper too.
