This past week I bought my Dad a new Sony WX350 to replace his Kodak Cameras (5 & 2 yrs old).  For years Dad has been using various Kodak's and has been able to use the "Delete Photos" on the SD Card option in iPhoto after importing the pictures then putting the SD cards back in the cameras with no issue - ever...  I also have never had an issue with deleting the pics off the SD Card from iPhoto using any Kodak or Sony camera including the Sony A300, A550, A55, A57, or RX-100. However, the...

I would like to know if A6000 has better accuracy and faster lock in low light in AF-S, or just more focus point, and as such, only better tracking C_AF, but the same performance in single point AF. Im planning on buying one of those cameras for wedding video (and ocasionally stills in the weddings that don´t have video). It will be: - Sony a6000 + 18-105 f4 OSS + external zoom hn1 audio recorder (everything new for 1250€); or - Sony A7 (used) + 28-70 f3.5-5.6 (used) + LA-EA4 (new)...

I'm quite new to the photography scene, and have been looking for some additional lenses for my Sony a55. I currently have the lense bought with my camera which is a '3.5-5.6/18-55 SAM lense' and I am on the look out for a lense with better zoom and sharpness, but have no idea where to start..Some tips on what type of lenses I should look for would be appreciated! I don't want to spend ridiculous amounts of money, but I want to be able to take better quality picturesThanks in advance

New here so if this has been addressed I apologize. I'm finding when processing in raw that no matter what iso setting I'm using I'm seeing ALOT of noise. Question, am I missing a setting that would cause this, is it a know problem in the 77? (didn't have this issue on my a55)  Any help advise would be great ! Thanks so much

I decided to take advantage of the excellent pricing on the A65 to get one as an upgrade from my A55, which I bought back in 2010. I noticed that nearly every lens I own supports lens corrections on the A65. So I'm considering streamlining my workflow by moving from RAW (Apple Aperture) to jpeg to take advantage of this, and maybe using DRO as well. Can folks tell me their opinions of fine JPEGs on the A65 with the latest firmware? The new camera is shipping now so I haven't been able to do...

In December 2013 I sent my Sony A55 for Censor cleaning and got it back in January 2014. Since then I do not change lens outside. I keep lens and camera in a safe keeper with desiccant and guess what? Today I took some Cherry flower's shots and noticed there are few black spots on the image. I wonder why would camera censor got that even I am taking care? Also here in Japan censor cleaning kits are not widely available as in overseas. Do you think once again I should send camera for...

Cannon/Nikon offer 2 years warranty. Why can't Sony offer the same. Really interested in A6000 but having just burned good money with A55 after 1.5 years, I would seek comfort in 2 years warranty. Is Sony camera product quality so poor that they cannot offer 2 years warranty? How many others have encountered camera breakup after 1 years ?

I need help to take a decision. I want to substitute my A55 with an APS-C NEX camera. Reason: I have the Sigma 8-16 lens and don't find any alternative to this lens for FF (A7) that I'm happier with. I already have the LA-EA4. Minimum requirements: the NEX camera has to be able to accept either the HVL58FM or the HVL60FM. Given I don't care for MP, I assume my best choice would be the NEX6 (or maybe wait to what Sony will present the 12th of this month) Pro and cons of the alternatives: I...

Rightly or wrongly just bought from Amazon UK a Sigma F2.8 DC OS HSM for my Sony A55  I did not realise when ordering that this was the OS version - I know the clue is in the name. On the box it says compatible with the A77 and A57 so I am assuming it is compatible with my A55 Is it just a matter of leaving the OS switched off? and using the A55 steadyshot system or vice versa I took some pics over the weekend some of which were not that sharp but that could have me and the baby moving Any...
