Whilst comparing the output from an 18mm Nikkor prime to my SEL 16-50 kit lens @ 18mm on my NEX-6, I notice that the white balance of the photos taken with the Nikkor fitted (via an adaptor of course) is quite different from those taken with the 16-50, 3900 vs ~4800 respectively.  As I shoot RAW, it's easily correctable but I can't see why the white balance should be different when the photos were taken within minutes of each other in bright sunlight. Any ideas anyone? Nikkor 18mm capture in...

Is there a solution to control the focus and zoom remotely with some kind of controller?If I connect the camera to the PlayMemories Android app, I have the ability to zoom, and by touching the phones display I have the ability to refocus, but that is not what I desire. I need a solution to slowly focus during a video. I do not like touching the lens while the camera is on tripod. It shakes the camera, sometimes very badly.I also have an older IR remote I have used many years ago for a Sony...

Hi Guys,  I've searched a lot for answers to these questions but have yet to really find a review or comparison that can convince me not to spend $3200 + $1300 on an A7r II + 16-35 Zeiss combo. I'm predominantly a landscape + astrophotography shooter and actually shoot mostly with a Fuji x100t. It's really suited me well and I LOVE the way the manual controls work.  However, I'm relatively new to more advanced photography overall and am really interested in full frame. I previously owned a...

I have had a Nex6 for 3 years and my most used lenses are a Sony 16-70 Zeiss Zoom and a Sony f1.8 35mm prime. Recently I have bought a Sony A6000 body and I am trying to decide which lens to put on which body. I would normally have both cameras with me and looking at the past history of my photography I estimate the usage would be about 50/50. Any suggestions as to which lens is most appropriate for which body or any other related comments would be appreciated.

Hi, I have the option of getting one of these cameras, the NEX secondhand. The nex-6 I would be able to get for about $270 cheaper, and that would save me a lot of money. Should I get it, or stretch my finances to get the a6000? Practically, is it that much better? would I notice the picture quality that much more? would it future proof me that much more? If so, I will get the a6000. It's reputation is undisputable. I mainly want to take beautiful clear photos of my family. Thanks, Andrew

Hello I,ve replaced lens mount on my NEX6 with TOUGH E MOUNT I. gen., because I had problems with my nex 16-70z lens (loose contact and play). Since replacing the E mount 16-70z works perfect, but I can't attach FOTGA KONICA AR to E mount adapter. I just can,t turn it. I have no problems with my other FD to E mount adapters, one no name and one FOTGA. Any toughts? Regards Marko

I just bought an RX100M2 from amazon as a warehouse deal. It came with firmware V1.00. Is that how the camera currently ships?  I understand there is a V1.10 out since early this year. And another question: when I open the battery door it doesn't pop open. If I unlock the lid it opens just a little and I have to move it to almost 90 degrees until it snaps into a vertical position.  Is that normal for this camera or is the door bent?  There is nothing obvious I could see.  The door on my nex-6...

The other day I turned the camera on to be greeted with the message "battery exhausted." I was confused, as I thought I had charged it and the camera was not left on. However, when I got home and plugged the camera in to charge (original charger and lead) the orange light went off after c.10 secs. Trying it in an 3rd party charger gave a green "fully-charged" light, but it won't power the camera. The light colour is the same as no battery, leading me to suspect this doesn't indicate charge,...

I've been reading the posts here for years but this is my first post so... hello everyone! :) Anyway... I've been pulling my hair out trying to find a small weatherproof case for my NEX-6. I do quite a lot of hiking and that's mainly when I want to use the camera. Here are my requirements for a case... It should be as small as possible but not a tight squeeze. I just need it to hold the camera with its 16-50 PZ lens (including UV filter and lens cap) and its strap. It should be weatherproof,...
