I've just started testing out these auto functions on my NEX-6 and I've found that it uses Multi focus area and basically it decides where it will focus. I don't get this. I was testing the macro function and about half the time it was frustratingly focusing on the wrong subject. It has so many focus points to choose from, how can it know which one i'm interested in? How can I get it to focus on my intended subject without jiggling it about and swearing at the camera. Is it me that hasn't...

All -  I purchased a selp1650 used on ebay to go with a used NEX camera body I picked up. Outside of some dust on the lens everything looks fine, but since I am so new to photography I was wondering if there are more sure fire ways to determine if everything is fine with the lens? I'm sure I'm being paranoid, but better safe than sorry right? Thanks in advance!!

I've recently replaced my NEX-6 with an A7ii. With the change to FF, I've found the SEL1670z to not provide the same results that it once did and I believe that it may be worth selling (very subjective feeling on the changes, but also the DoF and the APS-C limitations are weighing in).I've some legacy Minolta glass and can adapt other lenses, so I'm not losing coverage in the same range.Any thoughts or practical use cases as to why one should hold onto a lens that they may not use much...

It's 2015. The Sony A6000 is over a year old. That being said, I stumbled upon the opportunity to purchase a camera kit that consists of a Sony NEX-6 (~4k shutter actuations), the 16-50mm pancake zoom, the Sigma 19mm f2.8, Sony 35mm f1.8, Sony 50mm f1.8, 3 batteries and a Nikon mount adapter. First of all, is it a viable purchase for $750 USD? And as for my original question, is it still a viable purchase today, when even the more modern A6000 is over a year old? I'm mainly worried about the...

As said in the title, anyone who has both the app installed and a fisheye lens tried to use the app to correct the fisheye effect? I'm willing to get a wide angle effect out of this method, but not sure if it works. If any one has the app and lens, could you try it and tell me the result before I decide to buy the app? Thank you

Soooooooo......Nex-6 Can't use digital zoom when shooting in raw... And focus peaking absolutely fails in even the slightest of low light situations.Does anyone have absolutely any tips or tricks for getting the face of a model in focus when using a vintage adapted lens on this camera? My work has suffered a bit because in low light situations, my model's face will turn out a bit blurry! Any advice at all would greatly help.

Hello to everyone! I'm looking for flash radio triggers and, after knowing the problems with the RF-603II Canon version (that I saw in this forum), I would like to know: Has anyone tried this RF605 on a NEX-6? Which version (CANON or NIKON version) do you recommend to buy? Thanks in advance. Regards.

Is there a way to change the initial zoom level of the kit lens when you power it on? I typically take a few shots, then power off between shots. I typically like 24-35mm for my focal length, so it's a pain to have to re-zoom the lens every time I power it on. Is this something that is possible on other cameras (a6000?). (The reason I ask this is last night I was rock climbing, hanging off a wall with one hand and trying to take a picture of my daughter with the other, and I couldn't exactly...

Hi, I need advice on which flash to buy. I have a sony nex-6. I am especially interested in Yongnuo's range, for its value for money. But I have no idea how to see which flashes will be compatible with my camera! Some say Nikon compatible and some say Canon compatible, but nothing about Sony... -The Nex 6 has a universal hotshoe, but what other specs do i need to consider when comparing flash's to buy? -Could anyone give me a list of which Yongnuo's flash would work well with the NEX 6? -what...
