Hello,I have been a Nikon Shooter for many years and have recently switched to my Sony  A6000 for "daily' shooting of Home,Environment and Pet.I  am having problems with indoor shooting of my pet(Poodle)  as reviewed in Lightroom I see areas of movement blurred.I have kept Sony on Auto-Iso and Shutter Speed at 60th of a second with Aperture at F4.Do I have to shoot in Manual  Mode of Shutter Priority rather than Aperture Priority to boost SS?Please help .I find this camera light with finely exposed images outdoors with some glitches in tracking.Best Alan New Mexico USA

Manually set the iso to force a shutter speed faster than 1/60th?

A faster lens will, of course, introduce depth of field issues.


Just a thought - your pet is a living, animated subject so what's the problem with some motion blur? Particularly in the extremities not the face.

    • Hi Pieter, Not yet. I've thought about that, to use a tripod. But I've no time to try that yet. I'll try it this weekend and let you know.  Thanks!
    • Did you try manually focussing at 135mm, camera on tripod / solid ground, delayed release? If you can get sharp pictures that way, at least you know the optics are fine.
    • I don't know how those cameras would fare as aviation cameras - either of them are far beyond my scope of purchase - but people have been taking pictures of planes and other man-made flying objects well, as long as they have been around.  Unless the aircraft is flying straight at you or flying perpendicularly away from you, the AF lagging behind the shutter should not be an issue and in almost all cases you would be shooting at infinity so internal lens movements to acquire focus should be at a minimum.  If you are expecting to crop a lot, I guess a camera with higher resolution would be better for you but that also depends on what you are going to do with the image.  If you are going to be printing large mural sized prints, higher resolution image would be better but if you are going to print at or below 11x17 or not print at all, even a cropped image from my A7II will be good enough on any consumer grade monitors on the market.  I have seen images printed from the first generation Olympus OM-D E-M5 (16MP) at 11x17 and they were excellent.
