Hi everyone!

I think if Sony made something I bought it ... from amplifiers to walkmans ... I should open a pre-owned store.聽 馃檪

Was very young when Morita gave me a diminutive preproduction radio and was hooked ever since.

So hope to jump right into this wonderful community and will learn/contribute as much as I can.

my gosh think i was 6~7 when i got my first slr - a pentax om1 (still have it)

gave me strong arms lifting that thing as a kid with its 200mm tele 聽 馃お

so this 6k will keep me plenty busy

though if/when i need 4k guess will have to get one of its more capable sisters

The OM1 (OM1n actually) in my cupboard was made by Olympus. The camera is amazingly compact and light for a film SLR of its time --- but a long telephoto lens, probably not so much.

I wish I could trace my photography experience back to such a young age. In fact, it feels like I forgot everything over a long period of digital P&Ss until I started "real-camera" stuff again just two or three years ago. With an a6000. I upgraded to the a6500 fairly quickly, but since then, no more body upgrades: lenses are, and will, take the money out of my pocket for the next several years.

my mom got tired of me on a bungee cord tied to her waist so she glared at dad to figure something out and he dumped the om1 on me and said go play
so anywhere from pajama parents to sibling weddings you name it i photographed everything and it cost dad a bomb but he knew a camera shop owner who had a darkroom so that helped
good o' kodak asa200 canisters that reeked of chemical smells ... those were the days!
and sure enough in high school i ran the campus darkroom (converted from an old dormant storage room) and in my first real job i had the opportunity to process some serious film out of an astronomy group studying the sun ... good times

OK ok ok ... took me a couple weeks but I got my 6000 to grow up into a 6300聽 馃槢

That 6k just had too many new camera lemons in it so gave it back and managed to get a smokin deal on a 6.3k and now I have to go through that 321 page (!!!) user guide.聽 My goodness ... I could just see all those engineers sitting around the tech able and like "let's see how many more features we can make those yanks read about and never use!!"

I may report back if my eyes are still intact afterwards ...

A6000 -> A6500, I bought the David Busch book, even though I had the a6000 one already. There is enough new that you want to know about, some of聽 which you probably will use. There were even one or two things that I learnt that I then discovered had been on the a6000.

    • Does anyone else have issues with a jittery image on their A7SIII聽EVF when in video mode, recording in 4K S-I 10bit. It only occurs with this codec and is totally smooth with no issues in all other codecs. Wondering if this is just my unit or a common problem?
    • On my Mac, I right click on a photo and select "Info".聽 A popup shows me aperture, shutter speed, but not ISO.聽 Does the A7C record ISO聽 If so, how do I access it on my Mac?聽 Is there an app?聽 Thanks.
    • Hello everyone. So I have really wanted to grab a timelapse of my resin printer.聽 Uncle Jessy from youtube has come out with a pretty cool cable that is a photoresistor that can take your shots as the leds are firing inside your printer. Resinlapse Cable Resulting in perfectly timed prints as it raises out of the vat. My question though. The cable he made is for Canon cameras. So I purchased an adapter that should work in theory. See below. Lanc cable But I got it all together today and it does not work. Unless I am missing something. Is there a setting I need to turn on to get the Multipass port to look at what is plugged in? I don't even know how to troubleshoot which cable is the one that is not working ,as I do not have a Canon camera on hand. Did I do something/get the wrong gear? Camera: Sony a6400 Lens: Sony SEL90M28G
    • First, there is a typo in my original response.聽 I wrote "The focal length of a lens does not change when the film/sensor size changes -- but either does the angle of view or the field of view of the lens." That should be "The focal length of a lens does not change when the film/sensor size changes -- but neither does the angle of view or the field of view of the lens." There is a description and a visual graphic of the differences of what we are discussing on my website: The World's Most Complete Fujinon Large Format Lens List 聽
    • 馃馃槃聽(sorry for that) Forgive me, but English is not my native language, so maybe I'm misunderstanding you or not understanding you properly. I might need a thorougher explanation. I think I understand what you are trying to convey, but are you saying that a "picture" has an angle?? How come? Anyway, I hope that with everything that has been said and explained, NK Creative's question聽might have been answered. Has it? It would be nice to have his feedback.
