  1. Greetings, I wonder if someone could help me with pinpointing the problem. I am new Sony user (long time Canon user). Bought secondhand A6000 and used it for a few days with M42 to NEX adapter, since I have M42 lenses in abundance. Today I received 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS lens, wanted to compare it to Canon lens kit, and to tell you truthfully it is splendid little lens, much better than Cannon 18-55 lens. Until it kinda stopped working. Auto focus became very strange, it either not working with lens fully opened (motor is not working), or I can hear motor working with big F stop, but it is not focusing accurately. Web search didn't gave me enough relevant result, so I would be very grateful if someone here could tell me what could be the problem, with camera itself or the lens. Only thing that I have tried is to reset camera setting, but that didn't helped. Any ideas? P.S. No one of my friends is using Sony, so I have no access to another lens to try, or another camera.
  2. Hi! I've given up. It's hopeless trying to Google my way out of this pickle. Every time I mention "bulb" the search just shows websites instructing you on how to turn it ON. And trust me, I've looked and tried to retrace my steps. I was out hiking last week. During this time I took a lat of photos and let the A6000 hang around my neck, as well as packed in a relatively big fanny pack. When I got home I realized that a bunch of the last photos I took were all smeared. That's when I notice the shutter speed expressed as 30" instead of the regular 1/600. I'm not all that technical when it boils down to hardcore camera science, but I love taking photos during these kind of adventures. And I love my camera. That's why I'm now reaching out to you guys. What's the problem? How do I "get back" to the regular display of shutter speed? In short, how the F do I switch of bulb mode? I recorded a short vid on my phone to demonstrate. It's not at all very detailed or thorough, but I hope it's enough. Thank you!
  3. Help! I have an A7 and an A6000. I cleaned the sensor on both today using the VSGO kit. When I was finished I tried to turn them on. The A7 was completely dead. Changed battery, Dead. Same again with the third battery. I would expect these would all be 70 to 90% at this point. I tried the A6000 with a fourth battery (already in the A6000) and it worked. I moved that battery to the A7, dead. Put it back in the A6000, dead. Removed the last strands of hair from my head. I put the battery that had worked, back in the A6000. Dead. I swapped lenses on the A6000 and turned it back on. Worked. Put that battery in the A7, dead. It appears the A7 is fooling the battery into not working. Any ideas would be very gratefully received :)

  5. Hi, I own an A6000 and an A7m2. I'm tired of opening beautiful shots only to find huge dirt marks on them! Yes, I can generally clean the images via software... However, I do a lot of event photography (celebrity red carpet, etc.) and it's time consuming and sometimes difficult (e.g., if the smudge is near an eye) and there's time pressure to upload images immediately after events. Is it possible for ILC cameras to have a user-selectable sensor dust cover? When in a hurry one could bypass the dust cover while changing lenses but when time permits one could use it! I'm so fed up with having to clean images and clean the cameras' sensors that I'm seriously considering an RX1R2 or RX10m2!
  6. My husband and I each had NEX-6 cameras, and each had serious problems with screen delamination. We had one of the two cameras repaired, and replaced one with the A6000 a couple of years ago. My A6000 is showing signs of a similar problem developing at one edge inthe dark area outside of the viewing screen. So for now, it's a cosmetic problem. But I think it's just a matter of time before the "bubbles" make their way to the viewing area of the screen. Of course, the problem developed after the warranty expired. Having invested a lot of money in quality lenses, we are quite unhappy to have a problem like this occur with all 3 of our Sony cameras...and are wondering if we should switch or try another Sony model and hope for the best. Is this problem something Sony owners just have to live with, or are there models with different/better display screens?
  7. Hi! Several months ago some strange things started happening with my a6000. For example when I'm previewing my photos, the camera jumps to the shooting mode by itself. Or when I am manual focusing with the magnifier, it disappears. It's like I'm pressing the shutter button. But it's not only that. When I'm recording video, it will suddenly stop recording, like I've pressed the recording button (sometimes after 10 sec, sometimes after a minute or two). It's like pressing different buttons by itself. Sometimes it's changing the shooting mode for a couple of seconds. I don't have any idea what's happening. Can someone help me? Thanks in advance!
  8. Hi, I have a A6000 with a SEL35F18 lens. About a week ago I noticed the camera/lens will not focus on anything that is further than 4 meters away. It says on the display it is on infinity. It’s like the sensor on the focus ring needs resetting or something. Any suggestions would be appreciated Thank you Jacques
  9. Hi I what take photos in fashion/miss univers I have Sony a6000 and lens E50mm F1.8 sos SEL50F18 it is good lens for this?
  10. I'm an underwater photographer and i'm wondering if I can set up exposure bracketing (in any of the 3 or 5 shot configurations) while I have an external flash connected? The bracketing works fine without the flash connected, but as soon as I turn it on/connect it, the bracketing stops working. Perhaps there's a particular set of setting that need to be configured to allow this to happen, or perhaps it's just not possible. Thanks in advance for any advice.
  11. I cannot get digital zoom on my 55-210 lens mounted on a6000. Please help.
  12. I tried to do the firmware update on my a6000. I got a message that said aborted, remove and replace battery and start again. When I put the battery back in, the camera wouldn't turn on. The red light by the battery compartment stayed on even when the camera was turned off. The only time the red light goes off is when I remove the battery. I tried other batteries and had the same issue. Suggestions, please. Thanks in advance.
  13. I recently bought V860II-S flashpoint/godox flash for my a6000 and it work really well on camera. But I can't make it work off camera as a optical slave. Does a6000 pop up flash not capable of triggering off camera flash?
  14. Hi, I've been using a Sony a6000 for years and love it, but it has recently developed a very irritating problem. The shutter has become slow and hesitates when I try to take a picture, often resulting in a 1-2 second delay between me pressing the shutter and it actually taking the problem. Similarly, on bracket modes and continuous shooting, it no longer fires evenly and consistently. Instead, it will take pictures sporadically, often with long pauses between shots. I mostly shoot wildlife (which tends not to sit still), so this type malfunction is extremely difficult to work with. I am aware the some lenses or high ISO settings can cause shutter delays, but I am using the same lenses that I have always used as well as the same settings (I have three lenses, and it does this for all of them). So this seems to be an actual problem that the camera has developed (to the best of my knowledge I have not changed any settings, but if someone knows of a setting that would cause this, please let me know and I'll check). I have also tried several batteries and memory cards, and it does this for all of them. Additionally, I have tried setting the camera to back button focus, but this does not make a difference. Finally, my camera has also developed a glitch where, after taking a picture, it sometimes shows the photo for a brief fraction of a second, rather than the two seconds it is set to. This glitch is sporadic, trivial, and may have nothing to do with the more serious shutter problem, but I thought I'd mention it in case they are connected. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks PS I travel with my camera a lot and was traveling when I first noticed the problem, so it has been through quite a few airports, cramped cars, etc., but to the best of my knowledge it has not been dropped or otherwise physically abused.
  15. I am trying to apply the newest firmware update to my A6000 but it appears Windows 10 won't follow through on the process. The camera's USB storage is also not recognized by either my desktop or laptop (both win 10). Any suggestions or work arounds that anyone might have to upgrade my firmware? Also, my camera is currently not saving pictures to JPEGs that will open....hence my desire to upgrade the firmware....any additional suggestions? thanks in advance, Miguel A. Jax, FL
  16. Hi all, This is my first post here, but why not introduce myself first? Relatively new Sony user. Have an A6000 with the 16-50 and 55-210 kit lenses. I mostly shoot wide landscape, but am venturing into portraiture and I take the occasional wildlife/tighter landscape shot... So, looking for a trio of lenses. I'm thinking a prime and two zooms, or just three primes. Not sure. I like the flexibility of the zoom but realize that primes tend to be sharper, which I like for my landscapes. Looking at the Rokinon 12mm F2 for UWA landscapes or the Sigma 16mm (which I've heard great things about). And then a 24-70, and then maybe a 70-200 for the zoomed-in shots. Not too sure. Any help and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Cheers! Jack.
  17. Hi All New Sony user so please excuse my ignorance here. Simple question, I can't seem to be able to connect my Mac running OSx 10.13 High Sierra to my Sony. I am wanting to get some applications and check the firmware etc, but I simply cannot get the software wo recognise the Mac is connected. The camera says USB connected, but nothing registered on the Mac or any Sony apps. Any pointers please? Thanks
  18. Decided to present you some footage of our last trip in Spain (San Sebastian - Bilbao - Mallorca - Valencia) Filmed with Sony A6000; Zhiyun CraneM; Dji Mavic Air Thanks for watching!
  19. Hey guys ! As you can see Im new here. A couple of days ago I moved from Nikon DSLRs to Sony a6000 and I just love it ! Wanted to share some portraits with the a6000 and the kit lens 18-50 f3.5-5.6. Sure is a beautiful piece of glass . So, what do you think ? Best regards from Israel
  20. Hi I have the a6000 and a Nikon dslr. On my Nikon I can programme a button to allow me to toggle between aperture and shutter speed to allow me then to alter either setting with the control wheel. Can this be done with the a6000 instead of using the dial switch on the rear, this is a bit fiddly for me? Thanks
  21. Howdy - Question, I have a Sony a5000, 5300 and 6000 (e mount) and I'm looking for an adapter for the Sony e mount so I'm able to use my Nikon 1 Nikkor Lens (Nikon 1 Nikkor 18.5mm f/1.8 and Nikon 1 Nikkor 11 - 27.5mm). I believe the Nikon's are G mount lens and I've read multiple articles with different suggestions. Any and all help would be much appreciated. And I'm looking to keep it a low cost as possible. Appreciate it! Cheers, Btlyle (@sonyatlanta)
  22. Hello all. I'm having one heck of a time trying to use my new flash gear. It doesn't matter if I attach a TT685s flash directly to the camera's hot shoe or use the X1Ts trigger, all of the images are significantly under-exposed. The flashes certainly flash but that's about it. I'm thinking I have a wrong setting in my A6000 but I can't figure out what it is. The camera's flash works fine but the Godox flashes do not work properly. They fire but the image is several stops underexposed. I am absolutely stumped . . . I've spent hours working on this!! YI yi yi. (All of the devices firmware is up to date.). The A6000 does communicate with the TT685. Any thoughts?
  23. Hello I am shooting with an a6000 and have a question regarding face detection. I am shooting a group of people and the camera detects 3-4 faces, without face registration. Is there a way to toggle between the detected faces? For example I don’t want to focus on the person at the far left, I want to change focus to the person in the middle. I am asking for a direct way, not a workaround, just a quick and easy way. So that means no face registration either. Thanks in advance PS: I am currently doing workarounds like recompose, lock-on AF etc, looking for something more efficient
  24. Hello, I'm new to photography but I will attend photography classes/lessons because I want to learn more and become better.. I really like almost any kind of photography but mostly street, landscapes, cityscapes, astrography, light trails, star trails and timelapse videos.. I use the Sony A6000 with the kit lens (16-50mm) , a Neewer 35mm F1,7 and a Goko 70-210mm F4 and all I want to ask is If I can use any of these lenses for astrography/star trails and If yes whice lens.. Also, any recommendation of any lens that is more appropriate for this kind of staff is more than welcome. Thank you
