  1. Model train engine.
  2. Im a noob when it comes to videography . Can someone tell me the advantage of recording at 100mbs over 60mbs. Now i realize the a6300 is not a true dedicated video camera but i have tried both record rates and i honestly cannot tell a difference between the two. (I do know that i had to buy a $65 dollar SD card that had a max write speed over 100mbs to record at 100mbs. Thats the only difference ive found so far ) Is it a matter of processing reach of one over the other? Thanks in advance.
  3. have you considered a used a7r or a7II? Could probably find one less that the cost of a new a6500. Unless you just need the faster fps.
  4. On my A-mount cameras, the IS was independent of the lens and compensated by adjusting for the actual camera movement. IBIS would work with any lens attached.
  5. I upgraded my a6000 to 3.2 back in august when it was first released. The only thing i noticed was faster AF in low light. It's possible your may need a faster SD card now, there is a note about it the firmware release notes. https://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=ILCE6000&LOC=3#/downloadTab "Adds support for recording movies in the XAVC S format that supports high bit rates (NTSC: 60p/30p/24p PAL: 50p/25p) Notes: When recording a movie in the XAVC S format, you must use a Class 10 or faster SDXC card If you format the memory card, all of the data will be erased. Make sure that the data on the card is backed up before formatting the card" Are you recording at a different bit rate now? that could be affecting your monitor and internal temps. I have read some accounts where a6300 uses could no longer record at 100m on their SD cards that claimed 100mb/s write speed after their firmware upgrade. Upgrading to a card with over 120mb/s write speed was required.
  6. There is a definite quality difference between the older selp1650 and the newer ones. Ive had both. The older one was very quite but the image quality was not the best. The new one i have was manufactured less than a 6 months ago and it makes a bit of noise while zooming and "unpancaking" but the image quality is far better than the the first one i had. kind of odd. However,,,, none of them can compare to the SAL1650 f2.8 that lens is just amazing at anything above 18mm. but it's HUGE especially with the adapter. If you get the sel18105g, You'll enjoy it's fixed barrel length but your 18mm shot camera jpegs will be heavily cropped by the camera. I did a wedding once using that lens. i ended up having to do a lot of raw editing. But on the plus side the lens works very well in video mode. Also you will notice that the a6000 actually has a tad better sensor that the nex7. But not worth worrying about. The NEx7 has a all metal body which is nice. The nex-7 also had the old Minolta/Sony flash mount.
  7. I have the sel1650 ,no clicking here. Unless you are running in video mode, then you can hear the image stabilization running in your video.
  8. The newer ones are actually not bad sharpness quality wise. But the a6000 camera does do a lot of distortion correction with that lens. You'll see a lot of barrel distortion in a RAW uncorrected image. Not sure if the NEX-7 has the correction software for that lens It's actually much better than the much more expensive sel18105g when it comes to barrel distortion. The sel1650 is probably the best pocket and go lens for the NEX linup However i am unsure if the sel1650 will collapse for storage on the nex7 you'll have to research that.
  9. Im going to have to agree with mtigo's suggestion Also as others have suggested is adjusting the noise reduction in RAW and not relying on the camera jpeg at High ISO images. I personally rarely shoot over ISO800 and almost never shoot over f8. It's to be noted also that shooting any aperture over f11 will negatively impact the sharpness on almost all normal and normal zoom lenses due to lens diffraction, (Telephoto lenses differ) Also make sure your "[Creative Style]" settings such as contrast and sharpness are not set too high. Over setting those adjustments will actually hurt your image quality. Try setting your Image "creative style" settings to standard and give it a try again. Here's an a6000 image at ISO100 f2.2
  10. If you get the tamron one,, don't get the a-mount version, there is no in lens stabilization. Get a canon mount and then get a canon to e-mount smart adapter so that you can use the in lens stabilization
  11. There used to be m42 to A-mount chipped adapters that would allow the a100 to recognize a lens as being mounted. i used one for a while and it did great. it reads as 50mm in exif data but exposure is something you would have to adjust anyway with it being a manual lens. https://www.amazon.com/Camera-Adapter-Confirm-Electronic-Minolta/dp/B007M82DN0
