  1. Hi, I'm middle of nowhere in Philippines and my reliable Sony FE 24-240 f3.5-6.4 broke down. Apparently the aperture motor broke down. The problems are: - Camera body (Sony A7sII) does not show aperture (only briefly it comes up to show aperture number and disappears again) - No control of aperture in camera - Aperture stuck in smallest (~f36) - Strange ticking sound inside the lens when attached to body - Focusing works semiok. Probably the camera has problems with lowlight since the aperture is locked at minimum diameter). I have tried: - I have cleaned the contacts - N
  2. Hello I have just bought my new a6500 and since I m shooting video in interior and low light I discovered this problem. When camera is at 4K 25fps(or 30fps) in extreme low light there is "ghosting" problem. The same problem exist if you using a spot light to light only a part of your portrait while the other elements of the scene stays dark.. It seems like a sensor or most propably codec problem. Please check the video below. 4K, 1/50, sony 18-105 f4, iso 1250~2000 (no picture profile) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zlrlpNQcIE It seems we need a new firmware.
  3. hi guys, just bought a sony A7R2. i was a canon user so i already have lots of canon lenses... i decided to use canon glass with the fotodiox. have read some reviews and looked really good. just got my camera and the adaptor so i was testing the camera and it kept freezing the camera. especially when i try to select 24fps. that is just odd! but i found someone on the internet that apparently had the same problem with an A7S2. does anyone have an A7R2 and uses the fotodiox and does not have this problem? i keep asking myself if this is a problem with my adaptor or every fotodiox. ps: di
  4. Hi everyone! I've had the A6300 now since September, switching from Canon 70D. Something I have really experienced is how slow it is. Starting up takes several seconds and switching from my custom modes or to other modes, like manual to shutter priority seems quite slow. I've noticed it's slower after filming a lot so I guess that has to do with the buffer but it's still surprisingly slow, even when I haven't filmed and switching. Is this just how it is, a bit slower because of all Sony stuffed in it or how are your experiences? Also, sometimes with like focusing or waking up from slee
  5. 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
  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
  7. I'm french and I did a recent shooting in the USA. I had a huge problem of flicker on a lot of lights. I shoot in 25 frames per seconds, and my shutter was 1/60, which should prevent me from flickering. I had an other camera, an FS7 who showed no flicker with the same settings. So the shutter 1/60 isn't a true 1/60. So for all shooters from the PAL world, it's a huge problem. I had the last firmware update (v3).
  8. 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 ano
  9. 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 o
  10. 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
  11. Hey, Just got a new camera, the Sony alpha 7 Mark III as a present to someone who does not speak English, so he cannot use it properly, and no Russian language is available. Is there any way to add additional languages to it? Specifically Russian. Thanks
  12. Just picked up and a6300 last week. I do lots of video work so I switched over from DSLRs. The camera is amazing - but I spent the day in the rockies today and took probably about 300 shots, including lots of great wildlife clips. Near the end of the day i turned on my camera to take a quick shot, after i took the shot it said something along the lines of "please wait... processing image". I'm not sure ecatly what it said because I didnt think much of it at the time. So after it said that for about 5 seconds I tried just shutting my camera off and turning it back on. When it came back on
  13. Hi ! I got a Sonya6000, recently i took videos. But after putting them on my laptop (macbook pro retina), the rendering wasn't good... The videos wasn't smooth and when i did pause I could see double images... Lets see the picture in attachment Thanks a lot for your help ! Lucas
  14. I have a sony a58 camera with an original lens for 15 months. When i turn the camera on the message "F--" is blinking on the monitor, and i cannot do nothing. A message appears on the monitor "Please mount the lens", but the lens is mounted. Sometimes the camera after several minutes is ok, sometimes i must wait for hours. If someone knows something about it please reply.
  15. Wondering if anyone has run into this issue. I have an 18-105 PZ for my a6300 that I haven't used in a few months. I picked it up today and noticed a rattling sound. It seems like something close to the mount is rattling up and down if I shake the lens up and down. If I attach the lens to the camera, it goes away completely. This makes me think that maybe it has something to do with the image stabilization or power zoom, but I have no idea. I've read people saying this is normal in other image stabilized lenses like the 35mm 1.4. Maybe the lens was doing this before and I never noticed? Ha

  17. hello everyone, i need help with a very peculiar banding problem i have observed with my A7Rii. my lens is the e mount native sony zeiss 55mm f1.8. when shooting indoors, there often is a dark band clouding part of the picture taken. if i take stream of pictures in continuous mode or single shots one after the other, this is very visible. band is moving up and down sometimes clearing the whole picture, sometimes blocking it all, sometimes wider, narrower, denser... i suspected shutter frequency problems, like you would see when shooting a pc monitor but i think this is differen
  18. Does this happen to anyone else shooting the A7R2? New camera, any video setting over 60mbs causes this glitch. Please advise.
  19. Hello, About a year ago I bought my 50mm (SAL50F18) and since then I let it on my camera (wich is a SLT A37) almost all the time. Yesterday in a attempt to make a timelapse I tried to set my camera in other modes beyond the Program Auto but the camera returned me the following message: MF Invalid when AF/MF Select is set to Autofocus. Available with Manual Focus Is that had any relation with the fact that I almost never disassembly my lens from the camera? Because I can set to A/S/M mode when I try to use my 18-55mm (which I use sometimes) And yes for both I switch the
  20. Hey! I have a problem with my Commlite EF-NEX adapter. Yesterday I mounted a Canon 24-105 with it on two different Sony Alpha 7s. Bith cameras are running firmware version 2.0. On one Aperture, stabilizer, ... was working. On the other, I couldn't change the F-Stop and the camera told me that I should mount the lens properly. In the exifs of the pictures from the second camera, there's no metadata about the lens at all. I thought the second camera might be broken, but with a speedbooster from metabones, mounting the lens was no problem at all and shooting with a sony lens as well. Whe
  21. Hey all, Came to the forums seeking some help. I bought my A7s used for a good deal a couple months ago and it's been great. I normally just used it in ideal lighting conditions but felt like testing out it's use in low light since that's one of it's strongest selling points. Unfortunately, the levels of noise I'm getting in the blacks and shadows is completely unusuable and totally different then others who have posted their noise tests online (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guXnEVou6Lc for example). Here is some footage I just shot static on my porch. Not a particularly bright night a
  22. Hey guys, was wondering if anyone can be of any assistance. Recently the enter button (center button of the wheel) has become stuck and I'm not sure why. At first it would seem to have gotten stuck to being in the cold, but now it's just completely stuck down and won't pop back up despite the rest of the wheel being functional. If you press really hard, it'll sometimes work but that doesn't help when I'm in the middle of a shoot and want to switch record speeds. Does anyone have any suggestions to rectify the problem? Btw, I've worked as a camera tech for a over 5 years. My initial thou
  23. I have a new A7SII camera and was taking photos tonight and noticed a very severe problem. I would take multiple photos in succession, and they would all turn out looking different with drastically different color balances; some would be too blue, some too red, all over the spectrum. All of my shooting settings were generally set to manual, and I was shooting mostly on "M" mode, although I briefly switched over to "auto" and it still gave me the issue. Has anyone else experienced this? Below is a link to view a couple example photos so you can see the color shift that I'm talking about.
  24. Hello, everyone. First, I would like to introduce myself. I am Daris Alfafa, or refillable, 17 years old from Indonesia. I'm new to this forum and I think I hope joining this forum would help me understand and learn new stuff about photography in general and Sony alpha gears. So the problem that I'm facing here is, I have 2 batteries for my Sony A6000. However, one day, I dropped one of the batteries from about 3' to a hardwood floor. After that fall, it won't charge at all. When I charge the battery, the charging LED will light up for quite some time (I'd say about half a minute), the
  25. Hi everyone! I have a very strange problem with my A7S and I can't get my head around it. For some reason when I use shutter speed dial it just gets stuck looping around the same number and not letting me set the speed to what I want. When set to automatic the speed changes accordingly no problem but when I try and do it manually I keep having this issue. I've also tested the same dial to adjust the aperture and it works fine so I doubt very much it's a hardware issue. I have tried it in all shooting modes and also performed a factory reset but no change. I have posted a vi
