  1. Hi everybody, I left my lens uncapped, mounted on my A6300 during sunset, pointed at a window. Next morning 2 serious things happened. 1. The 18-105 PZ lens wouldn't initiate completely. I checked it on another Sony camera and the lens is fine. 2. Live view is OK, so is video recording but when I take a still image, this is what the camera records. Sunset didn't last that long, there's a building blocking it for most of the time. It wasn't super hot inside, etc..
  2. Used cameras: - Sony A6300 - Sony A7s Used lens: - Sony E 18-105mm f/4 G OSS PZ - Sony E 50mm f/1.8 OSS - Sony E 35mm f/1.8 OSS - Sony DT 85mm f/1.8 - Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X116 Pro DX II - Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
  3. Hi! This is my first post. I just bought a Sony a6300 and i have a problem while recording 4k video. I'm using a Sony 55-210mm lenses. When i select 4K Video and the options: 24p 100M (super 35mm) and 24p 60M (super 35mm) some black bars (stripes) appears on the video. (i'll attach stills). This is "resolved" by making higher the ISO around 6400-20,000, but then at 25,600 the black bars appears again (and stronger). I don't know if there is something with my configuration (i haven't changed a lot of things since i bought it, almost everything is on default), or if it is another kind of problem. I used also the 16-50 kit lenses and the stripes appear too. Thanks for your help! *The one with the BEAR is 24p 60M, the one with the purple curtains is 24p 100M.
  4. Seeing that the Sony 70-200 2.8 is $2500...are there any recommendations on less-expensive alternatives for sports? Anyone have success with sports and adapters without losing the speedy AF? Please share. Currently using a6300 for outdoor (utilizing the crop factor) and a7ii indoors.

  9. I know I'm not the only one. I know that this forum is full of sony lover, I'm one too, so I put my hands ahead and beg you not to defend the a6300 at any cost. this is serious. I've had many cameras, which I treated very bad, being in my youth days a photographer of disasters like earthquakes and similar. this a6300 is my first mirrorless, my first sony, and the first camera I've ever treated as a fragile child, always keeping it clean and warm and safe. It also is the first camera to ever fail me. It happens that all of a sudden it stopped responding to any input but shooting pictures. at first solely every once and then, then it got worst and worst till the day it could only shoot pictures, not opening the menu, not changing aperture or shutter speed, no anything. I figured it out: it is the shutter button: for some reasons it remains "half pressed". I searched the web and found out that it is a COMMON ISSUE, which is not good at all. I want to add to this that that button seemed a little awkward to me since my first uses of the camera. I assumed it was my imagination at that time, and maybe it was. I don't want to point out any crafting failures or so, but - why the hell does it happen? - how do I fix it? I love my camera and don't want to change it - nor can I afford to, now that I think of it : ) with love, yours @ph_LDA
  10. Hi all, Since two days I have an issue with the built in flash of my A6300. I don't use it much, but every now and then I do. What happens is that the flash does not fire and that in the viewfinder, I have the Icon for a flash with an orange dot which mean "Flash charge in progress". I can understand this for an external flash, but not for the internal. For the record, I have tried many things and with an external flash it works, although sometimes (also recently) I have to fit the flas one or two times on the hot shoe before it connects.. Ad yes, silent shooting and so are all off and the problem exists in all flash modes. Any ideas anyone? Thanks Ubo
  11. IMG_6645.HEICIMG_6645.HEIC Hi there, I'm trying to set up my Sony a6300 as webcam using the Sony Remote software to my Mac Book Pro. For some reason it's recognising the camera but not connecting. It seems to be stuck in the 'Connecting... USB' cycle even when I've left it for several hours. I'm using the USB setting PC Connect on the camera I'm using the Sony USB to B cable supplied with camera. So far I've tried the following; 1. Using another USB to B cable (although it is recognising the camera, just not connecting - see screenshots) 2. Reset camera to factory settings 3. Uninstalled and re-installed the Sony Image Edge software 4. Several restarts of the Mac and Camera Fair to say I'm stumped!!! Anyone else have any ideas? Thank you :-)
  12. This is a Sony A6300 with Sigma AF 24-105mm f/4 DG HSM Art Minolta A with Sony LA-EA3 A-Mount Adapter. As well as Blackmagic Production Camera 4K EF with Sigma AF 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Canon EF-S and Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM. The result is 10 minutes of peace and clouds. Except for the opening plan in the timelapse, everything else was in real time. After the post-production, it was accelerated.

  14. Hi, wonder if anyone is familiar with this, A7Riii has 42mp sensor while A7iii is 24mp, what effect does pixel size have on low light video, besides the obvious max ISO limit, thank you
  15. 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?

  17. The project started in 2012 with my first experiments with timelapse techniques. At that time I was just beginning to look for ways to capture as much emotion as possible from the atmosphere of the city where I was born, through the visuals. After the 2nd video first showed in January 2014 and won several awards afterwards, I started working on a short film. In 2017, the main filming was completed, but due to circumstances, the project went into the archive. In 2018, a short video based on the draft version of the film was released.And now, three years later, the film has been completely remastered. And the author of the music, as originally intended, was the talented Russian composer Sergei Ivanov. The film was shot on Sony A6300, Sony A7s, Sony A77v, Sony A65, Konica-Minolta Z3, Blackmagic Production Camera 4K EF, Panasonic GH5 and Xiaomi Mi Drone 4K. You can listen to the composer's works herehttps://soundtree.bandcamp.com
  18. TL;DR: got any recommendations for a cheap fast manual non-radioactive 50mm prime? I have an a6500 with the 16-70mm kit lens and also the 30mm f1.4 Sigma lens, which I love by the way. However, I want to use some legacy primes to experiment with different focal lengths, perhaps a tilt adapter later on, etc. I also don't want to use a radioactive lens, because firstly I don't have a basement in my small apartment to "hide" the lens away when I'm not using it, secondly, I have a dog, thirdly I just don't want to take the risk. I have shortlisted it to the following: Minolta rokkor-md 50mm 1.4 - might be radioactive?? but f1.4 is very fast and apparently it's sharp too Helios 44m 58mm f2 - this is a lens primed for its swirly bokeh but I've heard on crop sensor bodies the bokeh doesn't swirl as well Auto-Takumar 55mm f2 - this has great "soap-bubble" bokeh, and works well on crop mode. The only thing holding me back from pulling the trigger on this lens is that it may be radioactive (according to the Angry Photographer it's not but others say it is, and Pentax was notorious for radioactive lenses in that era) and also it's very RARE and fairly expensive. I'm in love with the look of the Takumar lenses, by the way. Konica 50mm Hexanon f1.7 - this lens is very sharp wide open and very inexpensive, don't think it's radioactive (is the bokeh any good?) Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF/AFD - not that vintage but fairly cheap and certified non radioactive (lens-makers stopped using thorium in the mid-80's) Anyone got any suggestions/tested the radioactivity of these lenses? Also, does the radioactivity vary from lens to lens? Thanks.
  19. A problem started occuring half a year ago. I was shooting some landscape when the autofocus points just freezes on display. I was changing shoot mode and still nothing. Cannot even access the menu or pics folder. Anyone know something about this, it become quite annoying.
  20. Hello friends! I am in the market for a new camera and I have decided to go with Sony. I was wondering how things were looking in 2018 in regards to these Sony cameras. I have the option to either buy: Sony A6300 for 800 euro from a dealer (0 shutter actuations but no receipt or warranty) Sony a6500 for 1366 euro brand new from Amazon I've seen the overheat tests between the two and unfortunately most of the time the a6300 turns off and the a6500 keeps going until it runs out of battery or at least reaches the 30 minute mark for those who have the 30 min limit. I understand they moved the thermal limit with firmware but that doesn't change the fact that it heats to the point where the camera may die from overheating. The a6500 has increased buffer depth and marginally better image quality, they boast better performance at higher ISO. It has touch focus which may come in handy, it has a redesigned menu layout, it has IBIS and while it isn't perfect it's not bad to have for handheld shots. Some features for quick and slow mo video and 35 seconds of continuous shooting at 11 fps. The a6300 is a bit of a gamble but the price difference is significant so I'm kinda stuck. I need to get out of my own head and need to hear some outter perspective. Any tips would be much appreciated. Thank you.
