Hi, Currently I have a NEX5n and a NEX6 that I've had since my A77 and NEX3 were stolen. I definitely enjoy their portability (2 camera+lenses in a slingshot). Having become a bit disillusioned with phase AF in the past (for fast primes) fast legacy/new manual glass has seen a lot of use lately. For outdoor in daylight sport / people / movement I've been using the 55-210 with mixed but OKish AF results and for non-quick animals outdoors in daylight the Minolta  MF 300 4,5. Have an LA-EA2 and...

I recall seeing past posts about, for example, the NEX-5N overheating during extended video use. With upcoming holiday sales, was wondering about models in about the $500 and under (dependent on upcoming sale prices): are there certain models that do/don't overheat with extended video use? What about the Alpha 5100 or 6000, in particular?

After 2 years of usage my NEX-5N shows Camera error message on the screen and shutter click sound become double. It is not happening all the time, but it happened sporadically. I check the shutter count and it is only 1.25k. How much can it cost to change shutter? --http://mycasualsnaps.blogspot.com

Hello all, Just a quick question. As you know, IR remote conroller is disabled on cameras before A6000 (such an annoying situation), so my question is, in HDR or bracketing mode, can we trigger the shutter (of nex-5N 5R- 5T-A5100) with shutter release cables that can be easily found in ebay ? (to avoid camera shake) many thanks for answers. Best regards...

Hi! I have a 9 year old son who shows some interest in photography and videography. Would like to buy a cheap camera for him. Cheap because he will probably break it soon. But tough compacts are too expensive, even old ones, and their photo quality is too bad. I own a full Olympus m4/3 system and I gave him my old Olympus E-P3. It's a very well built camera, it doesn't break if you drop it on asphalt from 4 feet height. But, since it was 3.3 year old it recently stopped working. Shutter...

Folks, I am here in the UK and I used my NEX-5n camera in a dust storm in Morocco. I got some awesome shots but my camera feels like there is dust inside now :). The shutter click is not as snappy and I can almost feel the dust when I zoom the lens and click etc. Otherwise - the camera takes awesome pictures still. My question is - does anyone know if its possible to get the camera cleaned internally (someone would have to open it up and clean the dust from inside) and how much would it cost...

Hey guys, Been following this forum for a while, this is my first time posting. I must say this is definitely one of the best forum on Cameras that I've come across so far! Anyway, I'm thinking of selling off my 2.5 yrs old NEX-5(w/ twin lens kit) since the 2nd value is still strong & buy the new A6000 and here's some questions that I have: Will the A6000 have a video limitation of 29mins 59secs due to the tax implication in Europe for breaching into the camcorder category? Am I stuck with...

I am about to go on vacation with my family carrying the A6000 with several lenses. I have both kit lenses (SEL 18-55mm from my old NEX-5N and the newer SEL 16-50mmPZ) and I find that there is a slight difference in border sharpness and geometric distortions between both kit lenses in favor of the old silver 18-55mm using in-camera processed JPEGs. However, I am not sure (not enough time to test it)  if the newer SEL 16-50 is faster to focus or more accurate as compared to the old 18-55,...

I've recently upgraded from nex5n to a6000 and using sel18200 as my walk-around lens. After some discussions on this forum and some reviews I became interested in a new sel1670z as a lighter and probably better IQ alternative to a walk-around lens, when I do not need a long reach.  I do not that much interested in video, but would like a lens that will be on my camera 95% of the time (with possible exceptions of low light situations, then I will be using sel35f18). So will I see noticeable IQ...
