  1. First: Lesson # 1 - learn your (my) camera! I own an A6000 and 90% of my shooting is Aperture Priority. When attempting to shoot the Blood Moon last week, I could not focus. First I keep forgeting I recently set BBF - so it ain't focusing until 'I push the button'. However, my post has to do with going manual. After playing in the dark I realized I don't know how to go Manual focus and more. Then I see when searching the web ah ha ... there is Focus Peaking.

  3. 1. Moving from Nikon D5100 16 MP to A6000. 2. Reasons: weight/size, 24 MP vs 16 MP, 90% comparison ratings of A6K to many others - A6K came out on top. 3. Also, using Lightroom metadata - validated 80% of shoots at 70 - 130 mm so 55-200 mm purchased this week (will use the short kit lenses for landscapes if needed). Also, photos used for sharing electronically and family memory captures on Weebly website. Largest printed photo is ONE 16x20 canvas mounted image. Bob
