Hello everyone, I'm new to the neighborhood. I have a NEX 5n that I really like with a few lenses for it. I recently found a good condition NEX 7 for about $400, which I'm quite tempted to get. Ever since it was announced I've always liked that model; especially because of the viewfinder and triple dial control. I never ordered it because my 5n always worked well enough for me and I had other expenses. I know its long since discontinued, but I much prefer its layout to the a6000 (since I...

The main LCD screen on my Sony NEX 6 no longer works, after I got the camera moist . It still takes and stores photos, but I can't see anything. So it works ok using a manual focus lens, but not very useful with my zeiss 24mm e-mount. I'm going to contact Sony about repair/replacement, but I'd much rather fix this myself, or just sell my body for parts and move on. Is the screen on the NEX 6 the same as that for the NEX 7? There is this guide to replacing the NEX7 screen , and I'm wondering...

Hi guys, I have researched on this topic for over a month and am still dazed due to inconclusive results. I am looking to replace my Nex 7 with either the A7s,A7r or A7II. I will basically be using this camera for travel photography, where I will be taking a lot of indoor shots(Cathedrals, Food,portraits,etc) along with some outdoor landscape type pictures. I do not know which one of the above to get. I want to take indoor shots at at least 1/30. If I get the A7r, I lose out on ISO capability...

I am unhappy about the fact that there is no standard tele-lens beyond the 18-200 mm zoom for the NEX7. Any suggestion as to what prime tele or telezoom (from 300 mm upwards) would give us optimal results in the high tele ranges?

This was posted in the FF forum, but I've had exactly the same experience with the A6000. Does anyone have experience with this on past or current Sony models? Is this a camera problem or user error? ******"According to Gary Freidman's book, one needs to dial in some negative compensation for using a Sony flash on A7x. In other words, some negative EV compensation is needed to yield correct exposures. I have similar observations when I use a Sony flash directly on the subject. I usually use...

Ok, just let me know if this looks right to you. I found this website called http://tools.science.si/index.php They are suppose to count the amount of shutter actuations on Sony Alpha Cameras. Detected Model: NEX-7Shutter actuations made up to file DSC00746.ARW: 776| | | | Sony_Tag9050_0x0032 = 8| | | | Sony_Tag9050_0x0033 = 3| | | | Sony_Tag9050_0x0034 = 0(65536 * 0) + (256 * 3) + 8 = 776 Does this mean there are 776 Shutter Actuation for Raw Capture? And Detected Camera model : NEX-7Shutter...

Hi everyone, I have a nex 7 and the following lenses: Fe 50 , F 1.8 Fe 18-50 Fe 55-210 Sigma 105 macro 2.8 HSM (and LAeA4), is there any tele converter for any of these lenses (sorry but I have no idea about that maybe it's really a stupid question)?  If so, is it worthwhile to buy such a thing ? Thanks Patrizia

I just got the Nissin ì40 + the Sony ADP-AMA adapter for my Nex-7. I played a bit with the flash and it seem to work OK: TTL, HSS, etc. It looks cool on the camera and I'm very pleased with it, except for a small detail, which seems odd to me, but it might actually be normal. When I switch on the camera first and then the flash, the "flash ready" sign does not appear on the camera screen until I half press the shutter button, forcing the camera to focus. From that moment the flash fires...

When I look at a given prime lens on DXO, the scores on the A7R are much higher for the same lens and often marginally better on another APSC camera like the A5000, which has fewer but larger pixels.   Are these lenses just not able to resolve sharply enough for the small A6000 pixels?   Are the smaller 24mpx too much for an APSC sensor?  But, if that is the case why does the A6000 have so much more detail than the NEX6 on the DPReview studio comparison screen?  The A6000 looks almost...
