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've been using sony Class 10 UHS-1 R40 (40mb/s) memory cards for my Nex6. My a7ii is on its way - will the same speed work well with the a7ii or should I switch to 60 or 90mb/s cards? --JoelGallery: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/7905316948Most Interesting: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/joelrnyc/popular-interesting/Flickr Stream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/joelrnyc

I finally got around to try my NEX-6 with long exposure tripod night shots, something I've only done with DSLR:s before. Since my first attempt was only moderately successful, I wonder if someone can give me a few pointers about a few issues: 1) How do you focus with an EVF/LCD in near total darkness? It dissolves itself into a mushy blackish noise pattern where amping up the exposure time or ISO does not really seem to help beyond a point. 2) Is there a WB setting that will give me sane...

What I'm really looking for is a link to a well made, good fitting adapter for this specific type of legacy glass.  Looking forward to using it again!  BTW, is my old Minolta worth anything to anyone anymore?  I don't want to get rid of it at all, just curious is there's any kind of market for these things as collector items.

I've read before that PDAF doesn't work on Sigma lenses. I have my NEX-6 setup this way... - Single-shot AF enabled - PDAF Area ON - Autofocus Area Multi - AF/MF Select AF When I half-press the shutter, it will lit up different points on the grid so PDAF works or not? TIA

I recently acquired an 11200 mAh external external battery pack ("Power Bank") for use with my iPhone. Does anyone know if there would be any risk of damage to my NEX-6 if I use (or try to use) the battery pack to charge my camera battery? Even if there is no risk, will it work? The external charger, an Intocircuit Power Castle etc., claims to have a 5V output. Almost anything concerning electricity is a mystery to me. Thanks, Kermit Ellis --http://www.pbase.com/runcible

I am looking to buy a new camera primarily for my wife and also for my occasional use My hands shake a lot and image stabilization is a big criteria for me. Also I would love to have manual zoom options which I can play around with. outdoors and zoom would be a plus but I am not sure if I can carry around huge lens for that purpose. I have a canon s3 IS and have rarely used it despite the fact that it takes good pictures and videos. My wife (primary user of the camera) could be taking lots of...

I want to photograph myself and significant other during a certain important life event where I get on one knee and ask an important question. I have a wireless remote, but I don't want the distraction of trying to trigger the camera while popping the question. Is there any way to set my NEX-6 to take pictures at a certain interval (every 2 seconds for 5 minutes)? I thought about the timelapse app, but is there a way to pull individual pictures before it's converted into video?
