****EDIT**** Problem resolved. It turns out there was a loose/incomplete insertion of the flash in the adapter OR adapter into the hotshoe. Backed everything out, connected the flash to the adapter THEN inserted adapter into the hotshoe and the contacts were good. **** I just purchased an A3000 and realized that my existing flash (HVL-F42AM) would not work since it was for the proprietary hotshoe on the a300 & a350 I had been using. I purchased an adapter (ADP-MAA) so that I can continue to...
I"m thinking about downgrading from my A7r and I'll be using a 14mm rokinon to do architectural and interior photography. I have an A850 and an A3000, and I'm wondering which you guys think would be best suited to the task -- the A3000 has live view, but I'd have to use a lens turbo II (I'd rather not pay a bunch for a speed booster), whereas the A850 does not, but is natively full frame (also, does not look or feel like a toy, which for me is an added bonus). The A850 can bracket w/ flash,...
Upgrading from point and shoot and my mom won't let me buy used. Best Buy is selling both the A3000 and the T3 for just under $300, which is my budget, though the A3000 comes with a free camera bag that usually sells for $30. Based on your experiences and opinions, which is the better camera/deal?
Hi all, I am trying to find a camera to use when I go on travels for climbing/travel. I used to have an Olympus XZ-1, as was very happy with it, but it got stolen. So now I am looking for a new one.

While reading climbing blogs, I've noticed that alot of people recommend having some wide angle and zoom capabilities, which is why I've...
Hi! I am looking for a speedlight for my sony a3000 camera. I ordered a Sigma EF 610 "for sony" and it did not fit the shoe. Turns out at some piont sony changed their shoe (several times?) and now I can't figure out how to even search for the flash that will fit. if anyone could sugest a specific flash or tell me of a way to search for one (as "flash for sony" and "multi-interface-shoe flash" do not turn up reliable results) I would really appreciate it! Thanks!
