I am doing some general analysis of the Sony a5000 video capability. Full HD (1920 x 1080) Video Crop There is a slight crop when using Full HD video. I have known that for some time, but I am just getting around to testing it. For this test I wanted to make sure there was no adjustments made by the camera's processing, so I used a Pentax 50mm F2.0 lens, manually focused. I set up a test using a tape measure, and I recorded a video at Full HD, and then I took a still picture at full resolution. I captured a frame from the video, and these are the results. [2020-06-28 15:40 I recorded the video and the still picture both at F5.6] "00005.MTS" Created May 17, 2020, 10:05:51 - 10:06:58 Size 180,879,360 bytes Video Length 1:05 Frame width 1920 Frame height 1080 Data rate 21,826 kbps Total bitrate 22082 kbps Frame rate 23 frames/second [sic] Audio Bit rate 256 kbps Channels 2 (stereo) Audio sample rate 48 kHz DSC01293.JPG 2020-0517 10:08 Width 5456 Height 3632 Resolution unit 2 Compressed bits/pixel 2 Exposure 1/1000 sec.

NOTE: You might notice that the tape measure is not exactly midway through the frame. I felt it was close enough. . . . [2020-06-28 15:41 Because I used the Pentax lens, there should not be any distortion correction. Distortion correction could change the relationship between the location of a sensor and the pixel where it would normally be represented. If this had not been done, then locating the tape through the middle of the picture would have simplified calculating a reverse compensation. So really, the location of the tape actually should make no difference. But if I had detected some "correction", then being closer to the middle line is easier to work with, so would have been preferable.] I have uploaded the Full HD captured frame at highest detail ("a5k-1080p-16h03m57s255-C1.jpg"), a resized copy of the still picture ("DSC01293a-Rsz1803-C1.JPG") and crops of the far left end of the still picture ("DSC01293b-Left-C3.JPG" slightly reduced detail) and the far right end of the still picture ("DSC01293c-Right-C4.JPG" slightly reduced detail). If you feel like counting the pixels to see the difference, have fun. . . .
