    • I have read some complaints by people about the Sony cashback scheme so just wanted to post me experiences with Sony UK. I had to wait the 30 days from date of purchase before submitting info and claiming my cashback, this I did on Monday this week - I received an email back by close of play Monday saying my claim had met the criteria and my claim was being processed and could take up to 28 days before I receive the money. Nearly fell over when I checked my account on Tue only  to find that Sony had not only processed the claim but had paid the money into my account - amazing and very prompt and efficient service and totally hassle free so no complaints from me.
    • Now passed the 63000 pics total with the Sony 6300 - recent links to the last few games are at the bottom of the http://rtfract.com/sonya6300.htm  page.
      Interesting to learn about Sony announcing a new mirrorless camera. Is it time to give the 6300 a rest i wonder!!!!

    • Hi, I've been using a Sony a6000 for years and love it, but it has recently developed a very irritating problem. The shutter has become slow and hesitates when I try to take a picture, often resulting in a 1-2 second delay between me pressing the shutter and it actually taking the problem. Similarly, on bracket modes and continuous shooting, it no longer fires evenly and consistently. Instead, it will take pictures sporadically, often with long pauses between shots. I mostly shoot wildlife (which tends not to sit still), so this type malfunction is extremely difficult to work with.

      I am aware the some lenses or high ISO settings can cause shutter delays, but I am using the same lenses that I have always used as well as the same settings (I have three lenses, and it does this for all of them). So this seems to be an actual problem that the camera has developed (to the best of my knowledge I have not changed any settings, but if someone knows of a setting that would cause this, please let me know and I'll check).

      I have also tried several batteries and memory cards, and it does this for all of them.

      Additionally, I have tried setting the camera to back button focus, but this does not make a difference.

      Finally, my camera has also developed a glitch where, after taking a picture, it sometimes shows the photo for a brief fraction of a second, rather than the two seconds it is set to. This glitch is sporadic, trivial, and may have nothing to do with the more serious shutter problem, but I thought I'd mention it in case they are connected. Any help would be appreciated.

      Thanks

      PS I travel with my camera a lot and was traveling when I first noticed the problem, so it has been through quite a few airports, cramped cars, etc., but to the best of my knowledge it has not been dropped or otherwise physically abused.
    • Hello! I need some help on a few things I'm a little confused about. Im really hoping someone here can help answer my questions so I can purchase the correct Microphone and wireless transmitters.   Okay here it goes, Im needing to buy a wireless mic setup but I will rarely use the lav mic. If I buy a wireless mic setup that comes with a lav mic can I plug in a shotgun or studio mic instead? I understand that it would need to be the correct jack. here is the exact set up i'm looking to get   Saramonic UWMIC10 96-Ch Digital UHF Wireless Lavalier Microphone System (RX10+TX10)   I'll keep the lav mic for occasional use but I want to us this mic instead.  https://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-AT2022-Stereo-Condenser-Microphone/dp/B004SNPD4I       this mic comes with the 3 pin xlr adapter fyi   Or do I need to get this instead   https://www.movophoto.com/collections/wireless-microphones/products/saramonic-uwmic9-uhf-wireless-xlr-microphone-system     all In all I guess what Im confused about is if the audio technica studio mic can plug into the transmitter that the lav mic comes with? I would like to do that so I can have the lav mic as well. Or do I have to get  the xlr transmitter instead?     thank you so much for the help!  Riley
