  • The "flip camera" trick is a very good idea...IF it is feasible/easy to do it and still keep the camera very solidly set (just wondering for instance how many tripods would allow you to  flip over ...
  • A far more simple and more accurate test is just to set up your camera on a FIRM tripod or something equally solid... set it about 8-10 feet from a brick wall, set it at I'd suggest say f5.6 and ...

  • Makes you wonder , doesn't it !!..  how they ever got appointed..  and just WHAT they are supposed to be appointed for !!
  • It is not for us to decide that. The Forum has clearly decided that Moderators of however many are allocated to each Forum and if that is a job too much for them to do then the FORUM is wrong..it ...

  • Thanks Jerry but that was the very first thing I found from a Google search.. did it.. and it made no difference at all. It's a nuisance since it doesn't always happen.. and there seem to be many ...
  • Bear in mind.. it's a fairly newly setup machine so I've no idea what may be missing from a bog-standard setup..or maybe it IS that right now.. I ran Command Prompt with Admin privileges and ...

    Are you sure that you did EVERYTHING that Jim explained above... Run AdWare....Scan.. Remove EVERYTHING it finds Run AntiMalwarebytes .. Scan . remove EVERYTHING it finds.. Run Hitman Pro.. remove ...
  • Replied in A quick pic ..
    A quickie just to show you mine.. lovely fit.. barely more than the camera size but superbly padded and comfortable.. all that you need for easy carry anywhere... A very flat compartment across the ...
  • It's pretty clear from what you say that all you want really is a GOOD bag which is suitable to take your A6000 and the one lens you have ... I've used Samsonite bags now for what must be about 20 ...
  • I have the 35mm lens myself and I think it is wholly fair to say that such lens is MAYBE one of the best in the Fuji range.. it's certainly a super quality.. but as a 35mm FL it IS without a doubt ...
  • Perhaps to add to the confusion .. and ask the question.."why should that be right" .. (using M) My X-E2 has the letter N which seems OK for UK (the first above posted list says N=all the rest of ...

  • That's quite true.  When I first got my A6000 I naturally spent a lot of time in going through the MANY Menu items (I think this could be THE most comprehensive Menu system I can remember ever ...
  • To put it quite bluntly - if you cannot afford to buy a GOOD quality lens.. then don't spend your money on the A6000..  you have already got a decent camera (5000) and you have the 16-50 lens.  ...
