I tried using a dummy battery to power my A7ii for a variety of uses, but whenever I switch from my regular battery to the dummy battery and vice versa, I am prompted to set the date and time.
I have 2 regular batteries and switching between them is completely normal.
Dummy Battery: it asks for 5V 2A or more.
I have tried my USB power bank, and my wall charger. both have the camera fully functioning, but both have it reset date and time.
The USB power bank outputs 5V 3A, 9V 2A, or 15V 1.2A. the wall charger outputs 5V 3A or 9V 2A.
Anyone have this issue or know what the problem might be? i have tried searching for others who have had this problem but i can only find 1 person in the reviews for this product who have experienced the same thing. would a 5V 2A charger maybe work better than the 5V 3A?
I was messing with my girlfriends a6100 camera and I screwed it up I don’t know how t fix it. It focus on something and I go to snap the photo and it looks like I was slinging the camera around.
help me please before I get chewed out.
Old audio guy, New to a6100. It is being used to record church services. We are having a frustrating audio noise issue...BACKGROUND NOISE, call it "white-noise-like," that is present in all audio tracks, regardless if we use the internal mics, or high-quality, external mics via a Yamaha mixer (via unbal line outs and direct box connection). The noise is there IF the cameras record level is operating in its mid range (watching the green LEVEL bars as they indicate input level). The only way to get rid of the noise is to turn the RECORD LEVEL down so low that the recorded sound is waayyy too low in amplitude. Compared to the recorded audio from a decent cell phone THIS SUCKS!....ANY help or ideas are greatly appreciated!
