If I use external flash HVL-F43AM (even wireless) with Sony SLT A55 I got to choose wireless in the camera and then I need some settings on external flash before I could use. So far so good no problem. But in case if I do not want to use external flash just want to use built in camera flash in that case am I suppose to un-do some setting in the camera to use built in camera flash? If so how? Please someone guide me. Thank you in advance.

Hi, I want to use macro lens and take some shots for focus stacking. There is one thing which is not clear even I have referred online tutorials. This is what I am doing: Camera (SLT A55) on Tripod, Aperture Mode , Macro lens 90mm, F 5.6 or 8, Manual Mode. ISO 100.

Can anyone give me some hits please and oblige. Thank you

I was thinking to take some HDR shots in coming holidays and for that I was reading Sony SLT A55 users manual. When I press D-Range button on the camera it is OFF and there is DR-OFF, DR AUTO, in DR Auto I can select the levels. But I want to turn on the D-Range how can I do that. I have already tried various Modes such as PSAM but could not turn the D-Range on. May be making mistake? Also on some forums I read Sony a55 has very limited Autobacketing (+/- 0.7 ev.) if that is the case what...

Will the spare battery on my A55 be any use in the 77ii?  Or should I give it to the person who will be receiving the old camera?  Sony website suggests it might be the same, but only goes back as far as the A57 in listing compatible products. --Paypal? Just say "No!"

So I got a hotshoe adapter for my A55. I am under the impression that I can now use pretty much any speedlight. My question is, do I lose any functionality of the speedlight? I was thinking of the Yongnuo YN-565. Will I still be able to leverage the E-TTL and everything else? Thanks,Derek

Having come from a 50D, I'm curious about the naming prefix on my 7D II.50D files were IMG_ prefixed, my 7D II prefixes them as 0F9A.Anyone know the expalnation of this convention.Thought it may be Hex for part of the serial number,but doesn't look likes that's the case. --PhilCanon 50D, A550, T-90, T-70, A-1Kodak DX4900, P850

Is this a setting many would prefer to have turned off.Seems as if it overrides manually set exposure & flash compensations.I now realise why -2/3 Compensation made little difference in some early shots.   --PhilCanon 50D, A550, T-90, T-70, A-1Kodak DX4900, P850
