  1. Would love to get the IV but when you stop and think about it, all those megapixels come with a liability...the files will be huge and my poor iMac has a hard time with 24MP Raw Files now. Perhaps it would be a motivator to get a new computer too? Still other than cropping not much to do with those huge images; certainly can't print them or even display them. But love to pixel peek and with the pixel shift technology, the amount of potential detail is going to be amazing.
  2. I believe this is a problem related to the type of lighting used at concerts as I have read elsewhere of this artifact but don't recall the details.
  3. The 24-70 2.8 is, in my opinion, the very best general purpose zoom available. My objection to the 24-105 is the power zoom which I find irritating and compared to the 2.8 aperture of the 24-70, it is slow and much less useful for low light, interior shots, etc. The optical performance of the 24-70 is amazing..it is like having a batch of primes in one unit. If too expensive, the Tamron equivalent is probably very close.
  4. My lens does that sometimes as well. I think only in continuous focus. Love the lens so don't pay any attention to it.
  5. I found the 18-135 superior to the Sony Zeiss 16-70 (constant f4 nice though); I disliked the power zoom on the 18-105 and the 18-135 is amazingly compact and optically sharp. I couple 18-135 with Sigma 16mm 1.4 and had no issues taking several thousand images on just completed Europe river cruise.
  6. I would suggest getting the A6400 because of it's superior auto focus and other features that make it a superb all around camera. I would save for the 18-135 if you can't stretch to make it now as it is a wonderful general purpose lens. At some point in time, adding the Sigma 16mm 1.4 gives you a great prime for low light and wide aperture photography. Those two lenses and the a6400 are about as good as you can get within their price point.
  7. Although less likely than just a menu change as noted above, is something covering the eye detector fooling the camera into thinking your face is at the viewfinder?
  8. In Movie Mode? Camera Tab2 page 2/9 Movie2 Audio Recording On? Camera Tab 2 page 2/9 Audio Rec Level selected? Microphone, of course, may have an on/off switch and most importantly a gain level selector that adjusts the volume of the microphone as well.
  9. I use Nissin flashes and it is s simple easy to execute button press on/off..no danger of breaking the flash. Just touch the button.
  10. You are correct! I was just looking at the icon for flash off, didn't actually press to activate. It appears for whatever reason you can only use the flash off / on function from the menu when in green auto mode...wonder what the rationale for that is?
  11. Works on my A6400...and A9. Are you in silent shooting mode? Sounds like you have a conflicting parameter checked like silent shooting.
  12. What is wrong with physically turning off the flash? That seems easier than going into the menu and hunting for flash on off? However if you really want to do that check out the menu section devoted to flash. On my A9 it is camera 1 tab page 10/13 "flash mode". There you have multiple options including "flash off".
  13. Manual Mode is the key. I intuitively thought it would be found in Shutter Priority.
  14. I too was unable to find bulb despite checking other forums; one solution, to perform a setting reset, didn't work. I know you have to be in single shot, non continuous focus, and mechanical shutter but all of that still doesn't get beyond 30 seconds on my A9 post firmware update.
  15. I am not a video shooter, but more gradual change of focus would be favored by me rather than instant snapping around that is best for single shot shooting? The videos I have shot with my A9 have been very well focused and pleasing to view, but again I rarely shoot video.
