Help with A6000 IQ
3 months ago

I've had the A6000 for around two weeks and I'm having difficulty getting sharp images.

I have used Zackiedawg's suggestion of MR2, and MR3.

MR2 - AF-C, Centre Zone, Lock-On AF OFF

MR3 - AF-C Medium Flexible spot, Lock on AF ON

Here is a sample image, taken with the SEL55210 (firmware V2). Focus was on the Bird on the Branch, but the whole image is so grainy when pixel peeped at 100%.

Am I expecting too much from ISO 400 on an A6000?

How can I improve on the sharpness of this image?

A6000, SEL55210, ISO-400, SS 1/1000 sec

Here is another image taken at ISO-250, focus on the open Bill
