    • Welcome to the forum & to the Sony club ☺️
    • Thanks for your prompt reply. In other words, in the very bright conditions I was experimenting with and when using AUTO ISO,  Aperture Priority and, say, a 40 mm focal length I should expect to see ISO 100 in the LCD until the shutter speed becomes too slow to be compensated for by the SSS.  This would of course apply to handheld.  However, I was using a tripod with the SSS disabled for all images regardless of F stop.  That said, I suppose  the ISO value shown on the LCD was not the actual value set by the AUTO feature when the aperture was opened up to F 5  and the shutter speed was 1/1250, even though the LCD still read ISO 100. I have a second A100 and will repeat the experiment. If the information on the LCD regarding ISO remains the same under similar conditions, then it must be a design feature. 
    • Just wondering why things are more blurry with the upper part of this photo while the lower part is sharp. I'm shooting with an A7RIV, 24-70GM. The settings are 24MM 1/1250SEC, at F/7.1, ISO 3200. I thought it may be dirty lens or fog on the lens but it didn't appear so. I cleaned my lens a few times and at a separate time under other conditions, I shot other photos with the same results. Not every photo is like this so it seems like a focus setting perhaps. This photo has center focus settings while I've also had this problem with wide focus as well. Anyone have any thoughts on what might be the culprit and what a good solution is?
    • The owner's manual mentions this: When ISO is set to (Auto), the ISO sensitivity is automatically adjusted between ISO 100 and ISO 800, however if the Mode Dial is set to M, it is fixed at ISO 100.   My opinion about this: With bright subjects, Auto ISO will probably remain at 100 until shutter speed decreases to the point that Super Steady Shot can not handle it. So any shutter speed that is faster than 1/focal length is likely to remain at ISO 100 until that 1/focal length becomes difficult to handle by SSS to allow a shutter speed that is capable of providing reasonably sharp pictures.  
    • Hello,    I have 6 (well,  I have 9 in total) Sony A5000s on a rail and they are all linked together with a special box called an ESPR trigger box.  They should all fire off all together but totally randomly,  one or two can be a fraction of a second late.  The makers of the trigger box say that it is a problem with the cameras or the lenses.   I have reset the cameras several times (ie,  have no autofocus,  auto white balance,  etc).  I am using the stock 16-50mm lens. has anyone got any idea to why there is a shutter lag sometimes? any suggestions,  gratefully received.
