Anyone have some advice on my best options for getting "hands free" long exposure (Bulb mode) shots on my A6000 please?By TheUniqueSphere
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.
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! ?

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.
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.
I've had my Sony A6000 for at least 5 years, but for the last year or so, I've been randomly facing this issue where my focus appears to be continuously partially pressed. What that does is I am not able to do anything (click on anything else) other than clicking the shutter button to take pictures. Here's a picture of what it looks like
As you can see, my camera is just on, but it behaves as if I partially have the shutter button pressed. In the past, i've assumed that maybe my button is partially pressed, and I try to pull it awkwardly, sometime it works, sometimes it doesn't. This has become more of a problem recently and has made my camera almost unusable. Has anyone else faced this issue?
