  1. Hello again Pieter. Yes, indeed, the white LRD does blink, as it should. I have tried all the flash settings in the camera, and nothing makes a difference. I'm beginning to think there's a fault with my camera.
  2. Hi once again Pieter. Many thanks for taking the time to reply. I have done as you described, but sadly the shutter speed is still limited to 1/160.
  3. Hi Pieter. For a moment there, I thought you had solved my problem! However, when I go to the camera menu to change flash settings, the high speed option you mention isn't there.
  4. This is a pretty simple question: Is it possible to use high speed flash synch with a Sony A6000? I have a Nissin i40 flash unit, which is SO MUCH better than the pop up flash. It has a high speed synch function, but as far as I can tell, there's no way to set the shutter speed any higher that 160th once the flash is mounted. Am I missing something, or is it just not possible?
  5. Thank you for this. I have the 55-210, and I too am pretty impressed with it. But I really would like something with a longer reach!
  6. I've had my A6000 for a couple of years and have never regretted upgrading from my old Canon Powershot bridge camera - except for the loss of telephoto performance. I keep searching the available tele lenses for the A6000, and always come away realising I'll never be rich enough to afford anything longer than the 55 - 210 kit lens. But then, something cropped up in one of my searches that made me wonder! The Raynox DCR-2025 2.2 convertor. On paper, it looks perfect, giving a huge boost in tele performance with, allegedly, little loss of image quality and at a fraction of the cost of a longer lens. There has to be a catch, surely?! Has anyone got any experience with it? I can find no reviews at all of it in use with Sony Alpha cameras.
  7. Hi. I have just joined this forum having had my A6000 just over a year. I have the 2 kit lenses and am fairly happy with them, but I am itching for a longer zoom and a better macro facility. All the good lenses are WAY outside my price range, but I have been looking at the Tamron 70 - 300 zoom and wondering if this would be a good option. It seems to have pretty good reviews, but has any one used it, and is it any better than the kit zoom?
