SORRY FOR COFUSSION! I am asking about NEX-6 Fn button on top of the grip which is Custom 1 for a6000. I had a problem taking July 4th fireworks pictures because every time I wanted a new picture the lens started looking for focus even tough previous picture focus was perfect. I missed a lot of good pictures. Can I assign Fn button to switch between Auotmatic to manual focus? I was at Sammy's Camera and @6000 had button like that C1.

I know, I know...another what should I buy thread....but, I need a gut check here... I am interested in upgrading from my NEX-6 with kit lens.  The two main reasons for upgrading are focus speed and longer reach. I thought I was all set to get an a6000 with kit lens and SEL18200 to give me what I need and more; however, everything I read seems to indicate that the RX10ii would also meet my requirements and more.  It touts extremely fast AF and has the 200mm reach on a Zeiss lens with...

I've been playing with my fabulous new Sony 10-18 mm wide-angle lens (cost more than the camera, if I recall correctly), in preparation for a trip to Iceland next month. I've also got a third-party, el-cheapo IR Remote Control. When I first bought the remote, I was able to get it to work with the camera. Now that I'm seriously prepping for taking some knockout landscape shots, I can't seem to make it work. Any suggestions. Thanks, Joe

Hi all, I just got a nex 6, it overall it seems pretty damn delightful. One thing I've noticed however, is that the PZ 16-50mm just feels a bit like its struggling. Does it usually make a bit of noise? And is it normal to be able to feel the mechanism of the motor as you use it? Overall it doesn't feel rock solid (which is fine if thats normal) in terms of its mechanism, but then again it is a kit lens. There is some movement when touched, not much, when the lens is...

I have a Sony NEX6 camera. I know it has WYFI. I can demonstrate this with my Nexus 7 tablet. My TV is a Visio that also has WYFI. In plain English please is it possible to view pictures on the TV using the WYFI in the camera and if so how do I do it? Thanks

I'm a Sony Nex-6 owner, since 2013. I own the following lenses: Sony 50mm Sigma 60mm Sony 35mm (my favorite because of the 50mm FOV) Sony 30mm macro Sigma 19mm Sony 1650 kit (I hate this lens, but keep for video) While I'm certainly not a professional and feel I am still new to photography, it is a "serious" hobby that I've picked up since purchasing the Nex-6. I mostly shoot pictures of my family/kid (a 2 year old with another on the way--50% indoors), as well as nature and "artsy" black &...

I own an NEX-6, the Sony 16-50 kit lens for landscapes and video, Sony 30mm macro lens, and Sony 50mm lens for portraits. I'm very interested in purchasing the Zeiss 16-70 lens to replace these 3 lenses in order to improve my IQ and simplify my lens options. I also own the Sony 35mm, but I want to keep that for my low light needs. And yes, I do know that I would probably have to use extension tubes or something similar to do macro photography with the 16-70 Zeiss. My questions is, does it...

Had a x30 for about a month now and I'm very satisfied. However... I've been after a fast 35mm equivalent lens for my other system but after seeing prices for a used x100 I'm now very tempted to pick one up. My question is whether the x30 would be able to read the files from the x100 to allow me to transfer them using my phone via wifi. This would be a very handy feature. The x100 is half the cost of a used x100s and over a 3rd less than a x100t. I know its 4 years old now, but from what I...

I'm going on a 3 week trip to the US east coast this year and am considering getting a Sony 16-70 Z to use with my NEX-6, but thought I'd rent one rather than buy to see what I thought of it. A web search for UK-based lens rentals brings up companies that rent Canon and Nikon lenses only, no sign of anyone renting Sony lenses. Does anyone know of a company in the UK that rents out Sony e-mount lenses?
