A6000 Buggy Software


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hi!

Several months ago some strange things started happening with my a6000.

For example when I'm previewing my photos, the camera jumps to the shooting mode by itself. Or when I am manual focusing with the magnifier, it disappears. It's like I'm pressing the shutter button. But it's not only that. When I'm recording video, it will suddenly stop recording, like I've pressed the recording button (sometimes after 10 sec, sometimes after a minute or two). It's like pressing different buttons by itself. Sometimes it's changing the shooting mode for a couple of seconds.

I don't have any idea what's happening.

Can someone help me? Thanks in advance!

You may have some dirt trapped near the buttons. If the problems persist trying resetting the camera.

I'll try with resetting the camera. Maybe I can also try to take it apart and clean the buttons?

      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.

      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.

      Greetings,
      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?

    • Also consider the new A7iv. It has a lot of the A9ii except the 20 fps silent shutter. If you really value that, get the A9ii. Otherwise the A7iv may be just as nice for half the price.
    • Hi everyone, I’ve been using my A7iii for about 3 years now and overall I’m pretty happy with it. I find myself wanting to upgrade to a newer model namely for: a better menu, EVF, ergonomics and better auto focusing. I don’t have a set budget, I want to buy the right camera for my needs. The type of photography I primarily do is travel/documentary. Video is nice to have but not that important to me. I shoot some landscapes but this isn’t my primary focus. Occasionally I will crop but that isn’t very often. A fast shutter speed is nice to have in some of the environments I shot in. Low light performance is very important to me along with eye auto focus. Obviously everyone is lusting after the A1 right now and I have to admit, I’m tempted. For my uses I think 50 megapixels is too much. I however I’m not entirely sure as I’ve never used a high megapixel camera. The camera that seems to check all of the boxes is the A9ii.    I may have answered my own question but I’m interested to hear everyone’s opinion.    Thanks
    • I paired a JJC BTR-S1 remote with my Sony A1. I want to unpair it but can't figure can't how to do that. Can someone help me? TIA.
