  1. My Sony A6000 Timelapse - Lac-Brome starry night This timelapse was captured over a 4hrs30 period, with 3 Sony A6000. Sony A6000 - Rokinon 12mm f / 2.0 and a Rokinon 8mm. Focus manual on infinity - Bulb mode - Exposure 30 sec. - 3 sec. Intervals - ISO 100/800 The intro was made with a drone, DJI Phantom 3 Pro At Lac-Brome, Québec, Canada The Sony A6000 delivers great image quality at a great price. It’s still recommendation for photographers looking for their affordable Sony camera. For new astrophotographers, I often recommend the A6000 and either the Rokinon 12mm f/2 to make for a truly excellent (and budget friendly) nightscape camera. While Sony has recently released a successor (Sony 6300 & A6500) the older A6000 is still very much a relevant consideration for photographers looking for an affordable camera. The newer 6300 & A6500 is slightly improved for video but at $1000, it’s also significantly more expensive than the Sony A6000. Merci - Thanks
  2. St-Barthelemy marshes That moment when the sun is about to set behind the horizon ... With its abundant and diverse birdlife, St-Barthelemy marshes is the joy of wildlife photographers. Photo done Friday, April 18, 2015 with my Sony A6000. Assembly of 4 pictures with PTgui (panoramic stitching software). Thanks, Bernard
  3. Hi Vivek, Thanks for your question, I have the Samyang 8mm and the Rokinon 7.5mm modified. I prefer the Rokinon 7.5mm. Rokinon 7.5mm fisheye is a sharp full frame (180 degree diagonal angle of view) fisheye, originally made for Micro Four Thirds (M43) system. It requires 5-6 shots around plus top and bottom shots to complete a spherical panorama, but, it is prefereble to make 6 pictures 30 degrees upward and 6 pictures 30 degrees downward. It is found that when adapted to a camera with APS-C (larger) sensor, it will give a 180 degree coverage along the width of image sensor with high sensor area utilization and high image quality. Only 4 shots around are necessary to complete a spherical panorama. It is very small and light-weight. I like the Samyang 8mm for FF Sony. It is important here to say that the lens hood lens was shaved in order to not be visible on the picture of a full-frame camera Sony A7r. All my tests, http://quebecpanorama.com/en/kits Thanks,
  4. More sample Images with Sony A6000 & Rokinon 7.5mm : Centre plein air Lévis, is located on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River across from Quebec City. Belvédère de l'Outaouais, situated atop a cliff in 30 minutes from Ottawa.
  5. The world of panoramic photography A new test has been added for the Sony A6000 with a Rokinon 7.5mm lens. For over a year, people visit the site to compare different possible combinations of cameras and lenses for panoramic photography. The addition of the Sony A6000 complements the range presented on the site. A modification was done on the Sony A6000. Improve the standard Sony E-mount with the Fotodiox TOUGH E-Mount. This all-metal mount replaces the two-part mount that comes with most Sony E-mount cameras. Of those two parts, the actual mount that holds the lens is made of plastic, which is susceptible to wear and lens movement. By removing four screws, taking out the two mount parts, and inserting the TOUGH E-Mount, you give your camera a stronger and more durable lens connection. Of all sets that have been tested by quebecpanorama, the Sony A6000 with Rokinon 7.5mm lens is the one that offers the best value for money. The impressive quality, coupled with the ease of transportation, seduced us, so it became the official QuébecPanorama set.
