  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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 Wanted to buy a new one but I really loved my a6000 and don’t want to just dismiss it because it’s “outdated”.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!!!

  6. 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?
  7. Hi from Indonesia! My gear is Sony A6000 and I have had it for about 4 months now and I really love it. My lense is Sony 35mm/f1.8 and Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Zoom Lens. I am basically an engineer with hobbies of photography and mostly videography. My shots is all about cities I visited especially in Indonesia. Hopefully I can showcase my kind of art here and also learning from you guys about them. Thanks in advance for having me here -Haykal
  8. Hi guys, Here's a short film while I visited Bandung, Indonesia the other day with my Sony a6000. Let me know what you think after you watch the video. If you like it, I will post more about my city in motion series later. Thanks!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. A little girl high-fives the Golden Lady at London's Piccadilly Circus. After about 11 years of doing photography, and especially street candids, I bought an A6000. I also started shooting mono for the first time. I've a feeling it will take me some time getting good at it, though.
  12. 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
  13. 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.

  15. 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
  16. Hi All, I posted this question in an underwater photography forum, as that's my focus, but didn't have much success in getting responses. Maybe it's too technical a question, but I thought i'd try again in different forums. I'm working to understand how my a6000 works in detail with the aim of (possibly) making my own LED TTL converter. At the moment I use the a6000 with its internal flash to trigger a set of underwater Sea & Sea YS-D2 strobes using my optical cables. I either use the strobes in manual or TTL mode. The TTL is reasonable, but not always perfect. I wanted to understand how the a6000 TTL system works, so I connected a little oscilloscope to my hotshoe x-sync pin and used the other channel of the oscilloscope with a photodiode to monitor the flash. See attached 2 screen grabs for two flash types - Fill Flash, Rear Sync. I also did a slow sync, but it's result was remarkably similar. I wasn't able, in any case, either Manual, Aperture priority or full automatic, to witness any pre-flash whatsoever from the camera's internal flash. Does the a6000 meter TTL during the exposure? Am I missing something here. Welcome any insights, comments or suggestions to be able to run another oscilloscope test. Cheers!
  17. 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)
  18. I was shooting on an indoor event and suddenly this happens... I know I've read about an article before on canon's but it never registered in my mind. Today it reminded me... I want to share my sad experience so that maybe I could warn others or maybe sony should do something to improve their technology in the future. :( Anyone here know how much it will cost me to replace the sensor or maybe I should get a new one? I think it will be expensive thank you!
  19. Hey Folks, Last week I received the Samyang 85mm 1.4 and it is my first manual lens. I coupled it with my a6000. On the first day with the new lens I captured a great moment with my 9 month old daughter. Hope you enjoy this shot as much as I do 1/160, f1.4, camera mounted bounce flash I had to compress it for upload here, the original file looks much sharper (the eyes are in perfect focus).
  20. Hello everyone first time poster here. I was wondering if anyone has experience with the zeiss 16-35mm f4 on the A6000? I'm between that and the zeiss 24mm f1.8. I've been able to find many photos taken with the 24mm, which have been extremely sharp and the color is great. I haven't been able to find pictures taken with the 16-35mm on an A6000 and am curious as to whether the IQ is as good. Any suggestions on which one or experience with either lens would be greatly appreciated!
  21. I have a a6000 and the Minolta 3600hs flash. I also have the hot shoe adapter to it will work on the camera. I have been on a couple portrait shoots since getting the adapter. My problem is it seems like the TTL doesn't always work. Every time I use the camera the mode on the back just says on not auto. I used to be a canon shooter then moved to mirorless for the size. I used hot shoe flashes a lot on those dslrs with no issues. Even when I change the flash compensation in the camera settings nothing seems to change.
  22. i just got the a6000 i'm starting to like it the more that I learn about it. One thing that I don't like is that the marco mode .... how shall I say.... isn't very good. I like macro photography a lot so this is very disappointing. Have any of you had any good results with any macro lenses? Either Sony, aftermarket or old lens from other cameras. I don't thnk I want extension tubes but I wondered if there was a lens that screwed onto the front of the 16-50 lens? I also don't need to be right on top of the object either. Maybe this next question should be another discussion started but I have an old Olympus OM-4 with some nice lenses and I wonder if there is an adapter to be able to use any of those lenses. I know that I would have to do focusing and maybe apeture manually as these don't have much in the way of elecrtonics. lol... thanks all
  23. I have a Sony a6000 that I have had now for a year. I wanted to buy my first lens since it only came with the kit lens. After some research I settled on the Sony 35mm f1.8 Prime Fixed lens. I took it out this past weekend to a butterfly house thinking I would get some great shots of the butterfly close-up as well as some good portraits of my grandchildren. I did get some good shots but many of my shots were out of focus, more than usual. I was using auto-focus with WB set on daylight since light was coming in through the glass, ISO 100. My exposure was off-I had my aperture set low to blur the background so in some I know that the shutter was not set properly. My question is, are there things I need to do to get better use from this lens? I was a bit disappointed in the results.
  24. Hey everyone. I purchased the a6000 a while back and used it for a few. Before I returned it I noticed that some bars on the video feature were under exposed. There were about 3 to 4 bars. I decided to record the video and put it in my lap top just to make sure if it was the cameras screen or something, But as soon as I saw the footage on the computer the bars were in there as well. I returned the camera because I ended up buying the a6500 anyways. Since its a new camera and newer model i forgot about the issue. Later down the road of using the camera I noticed the exact same problem come up on this camera. It is very odd I have done some research and looked for similar situations as mine but so far nothing. Basically I get about 4 horizontal bars that go across the frame of my video that look underexposed. Please take a look at this frame I captured at an event. If you look at the screen shots carefully. You can see the bars are in the exact same position.
