  1. Does anyone know what are the settings that are applied in the various SCN modes? I have a different camera now (A7iv) and I'd like to define a few sets of settings that mimic some of the SCN modes that my A6000 had. Is there a description somewhere of exactly what settings are applied in the various Scene Selection modes?
  2. Maybe I have something set wrong but when recording video on my a6000 I don't see them in playback mode. I see all of the photos I have taken but no video. I'm sure they're there because when using playmemories they show up (although they won't wirelessly transfer). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I cannot get digital zoom on my 55-210 lens mounted on a6000. Please help.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.

  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. 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?
  11. 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!
  12. From the album: Rokkor 50 1.4 on Sony a6000

    Granny was rocking my newborn daughter on the deck, and I snapped a photo with my a6000 and Minolta Rokkor 50mm 1.4.
  13. From the album: Rokkor 50 1.4 on Sony a6000

    Took a shot of this silk tree, what we southerners call mimosa, outside my mother-in-law's house with my Minolta Rokkor 50mm 1.4 on a Sony a6000.
  14. From the album: Rokkor 50 1.4 on Sony a6000

    Shot this guy like 15 minutes after buying a cheap Minolta 1:1 extension tube from our local camera shop for $10. Added it to my 50 1.4 Rokkor and a6000 and found this guy behind the building. Right place, right time. Shot handheld.
  15. Hello everyone! I'm new here and new to thew world of photography. I'm a game developer by trade and love to modify things. I'll be posting a few of my modifications I did to my A6000 (mostly aesthetic ones) and how I went about doing them. Since the a6000 series all look alike I wanted to hopefully inspire some people to make theirs stand out in the crowd like mine does. I'll post the link to my new thread once I make it and figure out the crazy file size restrictions with the pictures I wanted to include.
  16. I have sony a6400, and i want absolutely steller quality from my prime lense ( will use for portrait , street portrait category ) the options i can see is 1. Sigma 56mm f1.4 for apsc 2. Sigma art 50mm f1.4 for FE I might upgrade to full frame may be in next 4-5 years, not immediately, will sigma art 50mm f.14 will provide better image on a apsc body than 56mm ? In both photo and video ? As the 50 art costs 2X than the 56mm, i am a bit confused.. but it that will provide that better image / video quality i am ok to pay the difference. If anyone has used sigma 50mm art on APsc for photo and video please let me know.
  17. Hello, I'm curious to know if these two lenses can be effectively used in FF bodies without invoking crop mode. For instance, in my Pentax APS-C setup, I can use my 35mm and 50mm lenses in compatible FF bodies (film and DSLR). There is very slight vignetting, but I can get a full frame view out of them. Has anyone else tried these two lenses in FF mode?
  18. Hi All, I rarely post to forums but I thought I'd see if others have the same feelings as I do. I loved my Sony a6000. My work has been professional video and photo, mostly in industrial markets. After years of owning a number of Nikon cameras, both film from an FE2 and up, and then digital fro the D1 and up from there, I thought I'd try the little Sony. I was about to go to Alaska and didn't want to lug my D2 around. I bought the a6000 with kit lens plus a Tamron 18-200. Here are some random thoughts after a few thousand shots on several trips. 1. It is small which is great! Easy to carry, the whole Domke camera bag filled with camera, lenses, filters, extra batteries, charger, cleaning stuff weighs less than just my D2 with a small lens. Easy to carry all day and just forget that it's there. 2. I do like the extra pixels over my older Nikons, much more room to crop. But that's just the nature of the newer sensor, not Sony specific. 4. Focus was great with the Sony lens but I never liked the way that it focused with the Tamron . "Fortunately" the Tamron was damaged in a drop so I decided to replace it with the Sony 18-200. What a difference!! The Sony focused so much quicker. I working with dozens of cameras and hundreds of lenses over the many many years I've never ever broken one, maybe it was karma.I wish I had just spent the extra on the Sony up front. 5. The start up lag is horrible. With my Nikons I'd flick the switch as I brought it to my eye and it was ready to shoot like NOW! With the Sony it's wait, wait, wait, oh, now it's ready and the shot is long gone. 6. Battery use is horrendous. When I was shooting I always had to have a couple extra charged batteries in my pocket. In between trips, etc., it seems that most of the time I needed it the battery was dead or nearly dead and the extras had lost charge too! I've missed a lot of great shots because of that. My Nikons would sit forever and be ready to shoot all the time. I could even leave the switch in the on position and it just worked. 7. I never had luck using any of my other flashes on the Sony. I have a number of different ones, I hated to go and pop for a Sony one. And the Sony flash seemed extra long duration. Even using flash I would get motion blur that I never got with the big Nikons. The first time I used it at night was to take photos of a group of scholarship winners that was supposed to go in the paper. Every shot had motion blur because I didn't realize that I had to put the Sony on a tripod or hold it very very carefully. Thank goodness that I took a couple extra shots with the Nikon D2 just in case. 8. It always takes a while to find something in the menus. I think there is just too much there so when I want to find something it takes a while. Stop shooting, have a seat, explore the menus, ah, there it is!!!. The other day I was giving one of my old Nikons to a friend to learn on and teaching them the camera. Even after not using it for a year I found that it was easy to find what I wanted to set up. Don't get me wrong, I love the little Sony, it's a great camera, takes amazing shots. But it and I just never got along. I'm thinking to go back to one of my smaller body DSLR Nikons for travel and sell the Sony. Anyone else have similar thoughts on going from a Canon or Nikon to the Sony or am I just weird?
  19. Hi, very much a newbie to photography, but I am keen to try my hand at some long exposure shots with my A6000 and have bought some ND filters to do some experiments. Operating the camera manually requires you to keep your finger on the shutter button for the entire length of the (bulb mode) shot - which seems a recipe for camera shake. I have a Google Pixel (android) phone and from all my attempts so far (using imaging edge on the phone and "smart remote embedded" on the camera) it is impossible to select bulb mode - the app always sets the exposure to 30 seconds. What I am ideally hoping for is the ability to press a (virtual) shutter button once to start the exposure and press it again to end the exposure. I must admit I am surprised that this can't actually be done on the camera itself (i.e. press button to start and then press again to end exposure). Any help gratefully received.
  20. Hello everyone! so, after much searching for an answer I guess I need to show (to someone who understands what I’m talking about) examples of my problem. the first images were shot with the kit lens (16-50) or the 18-200 OSS SONY lens (great lens!) a few years ago and had no editing. they were amazing! I could see them razor sharp in the PC and I’ve printed quite a lot of them (biz sizes as well). but lately (end of last year, and 2020) I’ve been seeing that the camera has much more difficulty to focus (it takes wayyy more time to focus) and most of the times doesn’t even focus at all. I used mainly P or SCN modes but now that I got a bit more to learn about photography I’ve been trying to get into M mode. And also bought a prime lens (Sigma 30mm f1.4). and the problem persists! Even with the sigma lens (which has the reputation of being perfect sharp) I see lots of noise and just not a good sharp image, not in the viewfinder and even less in my new Mac... I don’t know what to do. Wanted to buy a new one but I really loved my a6000 and don’t want to just dismiss it because it’s “outdated”. ah! I’ve upgraded the firmware and have initialised it many times... still, some photos are ok but not great and most of them do not focus at all! Suggestions? How can I be sure it’s defective? thanks!!!

  21. I recently bought this canon macro lense to pair with this adapter for my Sony A6000, but it does not seem to be compatible, although I have had success with other off brand canon lenses. Does anyone have any solutions or good lens adapters they have used with success? thanks in advance! ?
  22. Went on my first winter hike on Jan 1. Went to one of my favorite trails and it's stunning during winter. Here's one shot from the hike.
  23. I'm trying to use the FA-WRC1M Wireless Radio Commander with my Sony a6000 and it's giving me the error message 'This accessory is not supported by the device and cannot be used. Please verify the compatibility with the device.' When I had tried using it a couple of days ago I didn't get this message. I've attached my flash as well, which is the HVL-F45RM and I didn't get this error message. How can I get it so this error goes away so I can use the Wireless Radio Commander?
  24. OK, I've been having a problem with dark areas on images taken with apertures of about f11 and smaller for a while. There are at least 2 very noticable areas of dirt on the sensor, but despite my best efforts to clean it on several occasions using a wet cleaning kit (swabs, sensor fluid etc. - you probably all know the drill) but unfortunately the dirt seems to be encrusted on the sensor and will not budge. Does anyone have any thoughts on other techniques that I couls use to remove the dirt that may be more effective? Thanks in advance.
