    Yes, you're correct. Same exposure settings (aperture, time and ISO) will yield the same exposure, regardless of sensor size.
    Just depth of field and noise will differ.

    Thad E Ginathom reacted to Biggblue223 in External Mic not working on Sony A6100 (HELP)   
    I had the same problem and puzzled over it for ages and looked to this forum, but no luck. As it was a new camera with a working internal mike, I figured the problem had to be the jacks.   After some trial and error I got it working. The jack going into the mic socket must be a two-pole.  Also if using an extension chord it must have a two pole socket and jack too.  If you are using a wireless microphone check that it is a two - pole jack that the transmitter you use has.   Hope it works out for you , drove me crazy for a while.
     
    FYI the jack in the middle is the two-pole the other will simply not work I was using three and four pole before.

    You're a lot calmer than I'd be after shelling out $3500 for a camera with issues hoping some future phantom firmware update might correct.
    My 7Sii developed a group of purple pixels 3 weeks after buying the camera but only when rolling 4K. I exchanged it in spite of the dealer saying it's hardly noticeable if you don't know where to look. A camera this new with issues will surely present with other ones outside of the return or warranty period. I'd punt it back to Pittsburgh immediately for an exchange.

    My genuine Sony battery (came packed with camera) also has that trash can symbol. Likely one is for the European market (trash can) while the other is for the North American market. On the two batteries it also shows that they're both intended for different regions.

    I did this photo with the 70-350 G lens. I don't think the 18-200 will be as good.

    Thad E Ginathom got a reaction from viewFFinder in Possible to power camera via charge port?   
    No, it is not possible. The a6000 does not have that feature.
    And for the cameras that do... Please note that it is not quite as simple as powering the camera from the USB port. What happens is that the battery powers the camera, and the USB power charges the battery. This means that there must be power in the battery, and it will run down while the camera is being used, just... slower than without the USB power attached.
    For true external power you need the dummy-battery device for all these cameras.

    This is what you are supposed to be doing while that battery is charging! 🤣
    And... no doubt it differs in different countries, but there may be regulations that prohibit shipping charged lithium batteries.
    It's great when you already have a device that uses the same battery: you can have it charged an ready and use the new camera straight out of the box.

    Actually I am quite surprised already ... so much in these little packages these days
    I grew up with Sony docs literally since I was a kid cuz Mom did business with Sony and the engineers and techs in Japan were quite the group back then ... so I enjoy reading them   🙂
    The professionally done tube shows are good no argument there, but have to pick and choose to not waste time
    And hey at least I enjoy reading user manuals ... my girlfriend in college enjoyed reading her absolutelyhugeonitsownstand dictionary every day, good grief.
    Anyway, hopefully little gems will surface after exercising my retinas.

    This was actually more of an experiment. It is very rare to see clear skies in my area. I grabbed the closest camera and shot these photos handheld. I didn't have time to setup a tripod, etc. I found it interesting to see the same moon in daytime and nighttime.

    More like distant relatives: cousins would at least share the same mount, siblings the same sensor size.

    Thad E Ginathom got a reaction from LouieN in Lens for product photography   
    I don't know. But I know an app that does!
    I don't know if this is available for iphone, but I use an app called Magic Sony Viewfinder, to see what a suitable focal length might be ...and to day dream about what lenses to buy!
    The 50mm lens is nice, but on an a6000 it is actually a telephoto lens. You will need something much shorter (wider-angle).
