  1. Updated Help Guide: https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1830/v1/en/index.html
  2. Link: https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/e-mount-body-ilce-9-series/ilce-9 Notes: due to the large number of function updates all memory settings are lost so write down anything important. This includes memory settings stored on SD cards. They won’t work with v5. After allowing Sony Corporation software in the Security Settings (Mac), the SystemSoftwareUpdater did not start automatically. I found the app in the resources folder on the .dmg folder. It takes a while.
  3. Does it do this on AF-S mode as well? How far/close is the item that you are trying to focus on ? Also, make sure the lens is fully mounted on the camera, there is a click when it locks in correctly.
  4. What aperture? Do you have Live view enabled? Do you have the latest camera and lens firmware?
  5. Sounds like e-shutter front curtain is turned off
  6. The focusing system on a6500 is superb. No camera in the world can read every scene and determine what YOU want it to focus on. AUTO means that the camera will measure the light coming in and try to determine the ideal shutter, aperture and iso. You have to point the camera and tell it what to focus on. You are confusing settings with focus, they are two different things. Read the manual.
  7. Focus area is set to Wide in Superior Auto. So focus will lock on to whatever gives it the best focus lock. In your case that would be the sharp edge of the grass. https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1640/v1/en/contents/TP0001297225.html?search=Superior focus Try using Aperture Priority and use Expand Flexible focus with tracking. You can then use the front or rear dials to adjust the aperture and the camera will adjust shutter and iso.
  8. What focus area were you using, Wide, Centre, Zone etc.?
  9. A listing of where all the functions are set in the menu, is at the online guide. It’s easier to find the information than the printed guide book as it allows for searching. Link : https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1720/v1/en/contents/TP0001653096.html#menu
  10. It’s possible, or maybe the contacts under the dial are damaged.
  11. You may have some dirt trapped near the buttons. If the problems persist trying resetting the camera.
  12. Is this what you are using? https://briansmith.com/sony-smart-remote-control-update-4-10-bulb-shooting/
  13. I don’t know of one, I think most people just use a wireless or wired remote for that.
