I've given up. It's hopeless trying to Google my way out of this pickle. Every time I mention "bulb" the search just shows websites instructing you on how to turn it ON. And trust me, I've looked and tried to retrace my steps.
I was out hiking last week. During this time I took a lat of photos and let the A6000 hang around my neck, as well as packed in a relatively big fanny pack. When I got home I realized that a bunch of the last photos I took were all smeared. That's when I notice the shutter speed expressed as 30" instead of the regular 1/600. I'm not all that technical when it boils down to hardcore camera science, but I love taking photos during these kind of adventures. And I love my camera. That's why I'm now reaching out to you guys.
What's the problem? How do I "get back" to the regular display of shutter speed? In short, how the F do I switch of bulb mode?
I recorded a short vid on my phone to demonstrate. It's not at all very detailed or thorough, but I hope it's enough.
I am a portrait photographer located in Aromas (Near Monterey), California, USA. I am a Pentax user (more than 20 years) that just switched this year to the Sony A7iii. Besides shooting weddings, quinceñeras, and other events I shoot beauty, fitness, and environmental portraits. I like to explore the limits of my tools in capturing the moment, both candid and, more often, posed and choreographed. My Instagram is https://www.instagram.com/davidfparkerthephotographer/
I only own 3 lenses for my Sony A7iii:
Zeiss Batis 25mm F2, Sony 85mm F1.8, Zeiss Batis 135mm F2.8
I have became user of a6300 few days ago...I found this lens in attic and I was wondering if it can fit my a6300. Mount on this lens is m42 and I found adapter from m42 to e mount but I havent found that anyone has tried it yet. Does anyone of you have experience with m42 mount? Lens is made in Japan. I found there was few versions of same lens with different brand name(Rexatar, samyang). I dont have any experience and this would help me very much :)
Hey everyone. I'm new to the world of legacy lenses.
Modern lenses are a bit out of my price range at the moment, so I'm looking into the legacy lens market for some nice lenses.
I currently own a Sony A7 III with a Sony Sonnar Zeiss 55 1.8. The lens is great, but the focusing distance isn't that great.
I shoot a lot of action figures, and like a macro lens for still photography.
Any recommendations as to what I should be looking for?
