  1. I've had my Alpha 6000 for about 4 years .. shutter has failed .. is it worth sending for repair or better to buy new camera ? Thank you
  2. 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.
  3. HELP... I am on a project and my 2 month old Sony a7rII is fritzing out. Problem started last night while using my Metabones adapter with a Canon 28-125 lens. Switched back to my Sony lens and it was fine... Then today during a band photo shoot it started again. The camera has not had any drops or weather issues. Here is what is happening: When I turn on the camera... the screen flashes and acts like it is starting up but never fully shows and details or menus. It attempts to focus and change aperture... but the screen goes dark before coming back on. It repeats this cycle over and over and never goes anywhere. In addition you can feel the shutter or something in the camera moving. Additionally... even after the camera is powered off... the cycle continues. Help! Really hoping there is a way to do a hard reset or something without having to send it in. I have another project over the next 4 days that I would LOVE to use this for and won't be able to send it in for support before then. Sorry this post is all over the place and not as clear as I wish it could be. I have my Canon 5D Mark II and a Sony a6000 so I am covered but really want to keep using the a7rII Thank you in advance for any help!!!! Will Byington willbyingtonphotos@gmail.com
  4. Does anyone know if the a6500 is able to remember settings between the separate video/photo functions? I’m running into the problem where I will dial in the settings I want on the video function, take a video, then switch over to Manual (or aperture priority), and readjust the settings to take a picture. When I move back to the video function, my original video settings are now replaced by the more recent settings that were used to take the photo, leaving my frantically readjusting to get back to the proper video settings originally used.
  5. I know that I can lock the dials/wheels but how about locking one of the wheels? (Not both) Is that possible? I use this on my Nikon while in the studio for example to make sure I don't mess up my flash sync speed without noticing.
  6. Hello everyone! Is it possible to remap my VIDEO/MOVIE record button to a Pistol Grip button on my water housing?
  7. After having my camera for a while, it has started to make a louder, almost grinding noise when I take photos. Has anyone else had this issue? Any ideas on wheat it might be? (Dirt, dying, etc)
  8. Rolling shutter on the RX100M4 has made hand-held video use impossible. It would appear great as an inconspicuous second camera or miniature pocketable option. Sometimes subjects are put off by larger cameras, so having 4k and great raw stills in that small package seemed like a perfect option. But from the first day, rolling shutter, and to a lesser extent poor IS, has made the videos pretty much unusable. I'm still happy with the stills, and I love the apps (don't use HFR much), but as a video camera, it's a total fail. Here's my latest travel video from Ethiopia. To reduce the rolling shutter, I set the camera to 1080/30p, down from 4k, but still, the results are just unacceptable. The stills from the A7R2 came out great, and the footage shot from that camera also had better rolling shutter control. But I need a better small option for a second camera. Anybody have any suggestions? Thinking about the a6300, but heard that has rolling shutter issues. Maybe the delayed Nikon DL?
  9. I'm not sure what setting I change or when I changed it but my a6300 now sounds like it's bracketing shots every time I take a photo. ISO is set to AUTO DRO/AUTO HDR is set to off Picture Effect and Picture Profile is set to off I hear it when I put the drive mode into single shot. I've tried resetting the defaults but that didn't seem to fix anything. Anyone else having this problem or anyone know how to fix it?
  10. 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 video below so you can see... Has anyone had this issue before? I hope it's just a setting that I'm too stupid to realise. Would really appreciate any help guys. Thanks.
  11. Purchased a Sony a7II yesterday. Have tried a few times taking pictures. It is surprising that the shutter click sound is so loud and my left hand feels its vibration. Is it normal by Sony's standards? Thanks.
  12. You have the A7R2. You have the RX100M4. So what do you do? Shoot the different shutter modes of the A7R2 in super slow-motion with the RX100M4. Click below for some hot Sony-on-Sony action, totally mirrorless. https://youtu.be/v5HyT_KgFT4
  13. A question addressed to the A7-specialists: As far as I could find out, the A mode on the A7 (ILCE-7 Vers. 1.10) works as follows: If ISO is not on auto, shutter speed is automatic in the full range, if ISO is on auto, shutter speed is automatic while ISO tries to minimize to 100. As soon as automatic shutter speed would rise above 1/60 s, ISO automatic starts to increase. As a result, automatic shutter speed does not adjust to values above 1/60 s as long as a maximum ISO of 25600 is not yet reached - then it starts to increase further up to 30 s. Is there any way to change these somehow arbitrary limits of 1/60 and 25600 to more specific and useful values ?
  14. Here's the thing. Sony has been steadily innovating its cameras, perhaps in a way carrying on the way Minolta's design philosophy would have done had it still been around. Innovating not just new features in an incremental way, but radical new departures not envisioned or anticipated elsewhere. So, in Sony's drive to eradicate all things mechanical in its cameras, isn't it about time develop: 1) Complete electronic curtain and eliminate the shutter completely, and then leading to.... 2) Once you have an effective electronic shutter, it should then be possible to optimize shutter component of exposure by pixel or group of pixels level. In other words, allow a myriad of sensor segments to have independent electronic exposure cut off, thus allowing different parts of the sensor to have different levels of exposure. This should boost usable dynamic range enormously by effectively eliminating blow outs and black spots as each extreme should be perfectly exposed at the points where they are projected on to the sensor. 3) Shutter noise and vibration should be consigned to history. 4) The frame rate could potentially increase enormously. No mechanical shutter reset necessary, it's all electronic so big numbers could then be possible (numbers of frames per second). As this is a concept, is this at all feasible or just a wishful thinking sponsored fantasy? (Yes, I'd love on sensor hybrid pdaf/cdaf or whatever works 'better' for A mount as well.)
