  1. If you look at the lens front-on and zoom in and out you will see that the lens right behind the front lens moves, so you will see reflections on that front lens that you won’t see when it’s further away from the front element. Best way to check for dust/dirt on the lens or sensor is to aim the camera at a light colored wall and select the smallest aperture. Take a photo and check it, if there are dust/spots on the lens or sensor then they will be most visible at a small aperture. I don’t think you have any worries with this lens, and even less worries about global warming; Earth’s temperature has fluctuated for millions of years due to changes in atmospheric pressure and cosmic radiation.
  2. 14 bit RAW https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/2010/v1/en/contents/TP0003226676.html?search=Bit
  3. Telephoto lenses let in less light. In Aperture Priority mode the camera will adjust shutter speed and ISO to accommodate your chosen aperture. Make sure ISO is set to Auto and that it has a high maximum, the smaller the aperture that you are setting, the higher the maximum ISO needs to be. If it reaches the high ISO level then the camera will use a slower shutter speed. https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1950/v1/en/contents/TP0002670799.html?search=ISO auto
  4. Imaging Edge Viewer will let you view your photos while you wait for the Apple/Sony software to get updated.
  5. https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1430/v1/en/print.pdf#page138 Try that…
  6. I owned a 6300 for a while and if I remember the grid line would not show if I had the level turned on https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1810/v1/en/contents/TP0002264659.html?search=Finder
  7. I thought the a7c had USB-C ports, in which case you can just connect your laptop to the camera using a USB-C cable. https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/2020/v1/en/contents/TP0001117130.html
  8. 128 according to the online manual https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1520/v1/en/contents/TP0001098855.html?search=SD

  10. Correct, Intelligent Auto (AUTO) examines the scene and changes the characteristics of the image based on what the software developer thinks the user wants to see. Program Auto (P) does something similar but allows the user to change how the image looks.
  11. Use Program Auto instead (P). This will auto adjust to what the camera sees but you can adjust how the camera interprets the data. For example you can set Vivid, Natural etc in Creative Style: https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/2020/v1/en/contents/TP0001140462.html?search=Creative Program Auto will take care of all the ISO, shutter, aperture etc. but you still control how the results look. If you use Auto all the time you are getting the results that some software engineer in Japan thinks that you want.
  12. You can turn off Auto Review: https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1540/v1/en/contents/TP0000808631.html?search=Review Nit sure what you mean by focus sticking. Are you tracking a subject and it won’t let go or are you saying it won’t focus at all?
  13. The internal battery that retains all the memory settings is only charged when a genuine Sony battery is used. So I suspect this is why you are losing your settings, the internal battery no longer has a charge. You could leave the power connected and set the Auto power save to put the camera to sleep instead of turning it off. https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1810/v1/en/contents/TP0002264717.html?search=Power off Alternatively write your settings to the card and recall them in the morning from the card. https://helpguide.sony.net/ilc/1810/v1/en/contents/TP0002241246.html?search=Memory
  14. Imaging Edge desktop Viewer has an option to show the focus point on an image: https://imagingedge.sony.net/en-us/ie-desktop.html
  15. Have you looked into custom hold buttons. Not sure how they will work for you if you’re using back button focus... I’ve never understood the appeal of BBF, but each to his own.
