I shoot a lot of video with my NEX 5R. I have sequential naming on. This works for still, but not video. For instance, if I shoot up to image 1003 and video 12, then wipe the card, still continue at 1004, but video starts over at 0. Is there any way to prevent this? On a related note, my camera seems to lock the memory card. I can view it on my computer, but not delete anything. Is there any way around this? I'd like to be able to back up last month to my computer and delete it off the card...

Hi there! I am searching for an LCD hood for my sony NEX 3n I just bought. The reason I would like it is to provide the shade and additional mechanical protection for the screen. However, after checking ebay and amazon I could not find any product where it would be explicitely stated that it is for 3n. There are plenty of hoods for nex-3, nex-5, nex-5n and I also found 1 for nex 5r and 5t on Amazon. link:...

Sony Nex-5R firmware ver. 1.03 I shoot in manual mode and set the aperture as wide as possible for shallow depth of field. Now I want to adjust the shutter speed as light conditions change. It is done on the Control Wheel [user manual p. 14 button #17]. I would prefer to use the Control Dial [user manual p. 14 button #13]. Is that possible?

Hello everyone, I'm required to install the latest firmware (1.03) on my Nex 5R in order to use the time lapse app. I'd like to make sure that it will no prevent the use of generic batteries and generic AC-PW20. Can anyone confirm that? Bonus question: is it possible to reinstall an older firmware afterwards? Thanks.

I bought a used NEX-5R on January 11th. It worked fine up until a week or two ago. Now, when I plug it in, the charger light is orange for a few seconds, then starts blinking like it's overheating. I have two batteries and they both do it. Since I was setting it near a window to charge and it was quite cold up until about a week ago, it may have had this issue all along. It's about 60 F right now, well within the operating guidelines. Is this a known problem with this model? Do I have any...

When I upload pictures to the gallery, stuff like ISO, exposure, aperture and focal length is auto-filled, but the camera and lens are not, even though they are in the metadata. I tried pics from my Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Sony alpha NEX 5-R and Canon Powershot SX210 IS and none of them filled in camera data. Is this normal?

Hello, I have a NEX5R. Recently, I save my photos in the mode "RAW+JPEG". I try to get the same JPEG from the RAW thanks to Image Data Converter. For example, if I find the JPEG good but there is something I want to change (for example the white balance), I have to modify the RAW. But when I build a JPEG from the RAW with Image Data Converter, I have a very different result from the JPEG of the camera... So I would like to apply same processing on the RAW file than the camera do, and to...

I have a question regarding the vignetting effect on my Nex 5R camera. I have seen some threads online and some other reviews that talk about the vignetting problem.  Some say that setting your "lens shading" to auto will fix the problem, but I put my setting on auto and this vignetting problem has been persistent. I haven't really noticed the problem until recently.  I am in bright sunlight and there is vignetting all around the images that I take, seen through the Electronic Viewfinder I...

Hi Guys! I've been lurking around the depths of this forum for a while and decided to pull the trigger and get a new camera. Right now Best Buy has a deal for the E-PM2 with the 14-50 & 40-150 bundle, which is the exact same price Future Shop now has the Nex-5R bundle with the 18-55 lens. My question is for the same price, should I go for the less functionality camera with no flip screen and a bit harder to hold camera but with 2 lenses, or should I go for the higher up camera but it only...
