Hello, Last summer I bought a Sony a58 camera. I think it is a really good camera for photography, but it is awful for video (at least in my case). The video is choppy (like it was shot at 4fps, camera was set to do 1/60), it is really noisy (like ISO was set to 3200, it's actually just at 400) and grainy. Resetting the camera to factory default doesn't work too. If somebody has any idea on improving the video-quality, that would be really great! Thanks in advance! Joël van Daalen

So as the title suggests I am having some problems with using the RODE VideoMic to record external audio on my Sony A-57 DSLR. When I think everything is set-up correctly the camera still records from its inbuilt mic. I've had the microphone sent off to HHB, who overlook RODE's repair and warranty but the product I received seems un-touched and still does not work. Does anybody have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

While reading through the available A68 manuals clears most of the things, one thing that's not mentioned anywhere is its buffer size. I hope its not a huge downsize from A77ii as except for A58(5 frames of JPEG+RAW); A77, A65 and A57 has decent sized buffers(13, 13, and 18 frames JPEG+RAW respectively). Anyone has any experience with it?

Hello, I have a Sony A58 and want to shoot a picture in raw but with black and white viewfinder. However, my A58 doesn't allow me to set black white mode if I choose the file type as the raw or the raw + jpeg. A65 seems to allow this. (http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54189420) Is there any way I can do this with my A58? Thank you,Won

I started with photography and videography with a simple Nikon D3300. It's nice, but I am producing more video. I have done a lot of research on mirroless, (or translucent mirrors like in the Sony Alpha's) and also DSLR's. My budget allows for about a $600 camera. I am looking at either the Canon 700D or the Sony SLT - A58. Does anyone know of a better one, or would mind sharing with me what they thing about my selections or advice for another? Thanks,

I have 2 lens from my old A58 that I actually liked using before. However, they were both APS-C lens so they'd need to be cropped. Question: How is the quality effected when using a cropped lens on a full frame body (A7ii)? I understand that the image will need to be cropped to remove the vignetting but what else is effected aside from that? Thanks! --Robbie

I used to have a A58 and thought it was about time to upgrade so I bought an A7ii as my first full frame camera. With that, I had a SAL35F18 which cropped is about 50mm as my portrait lens. However, coming to the A7ii which is an e-mount, I can't use those lens unless I buy an adapter (~$100). I started venturing out into other lens since there arent too many FE lens right now that are affordable (SAL35F18 was around $200ish before). I came upon Rokinon and saw it was native to the emount...

Hi all, I am looking at getting my first DSLR , just an entry level, but there are so many out there to choose from. So far, I have been looking at this site: http://www.whatdigitalcamera.com/roundup/camera-roundups/best-entry-level-dslrs-2016-10162 I am leaning towards the Sony Alpha A58, the main attraction being that it says its great for fast moving action, I have pet ferrets and young nieces and nephews, all of which usually end up with blurred photos so hopefully the A58 could help with...

Hello everyone, I am choosing from two cameras: Pentax K-50 (with a stock sense 18-135) and Sony A58 (with two lenses: 18-55 and 55-300). A58 is cheaper, but K-50 is weather sealed and has an AF assist lamp. I read a lot about both of them, but still did not manage to make up my mind. Which camera you would recommend to go for and why? I do not know much about photography (just started couple of weeks ago), so all hints do matter.   Many thanks for your opinions.  Cheers, Alex
