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...

Hi, At the end of 2013, I decided I was tired of missing shots with my point and shoot camera and decided I was gonna do something about it, so I shopped alot and grabbed a NEX-6 with the kit lens (16-50mm) and the 35mm f/1.8. I'm pretty pleased with what i'm able to do but I still have alot to learn. Last fall I registered in a photography classes to learn the basics and i'm now in the second semester where there will be less theory and more practice (studio shoot, night expedition, sport...

Hi. Has anyone experience of using a Canon EF-S 55-250mm 4.5/5.6 IS STM lens on a Nex-6 or A6000 via one of the cheaper adapters e.g. Viltrox? If so, how did it perform in terms of AF and aperture control? I've been unhappy with image quality from a SEL55210 on my A6000 at above about 160mm and wonder whether the Canon lens would be an improvement. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Do they produce super sharp images? What about the color rendition? I already have a helios 44m-4 but still don't have the adapter. I'm planing to buy this canon. Are they better than the kit lens (16-50pz)?

Hi, My dad and I both have NEX-6 cameras. Earlier this year he bought a Metz 20 C-2 flashgun to use with his, and it worked fine. However, over Christmas he went to use the flashgun and it didn't work. He connected it to his hot shoe, but nothing happened when he tried to switch the flash gun on.  I put the flash gun on my NEX-6 and it worked fine, and it also worked on my brother's NEX-5. My dad also tried another flash gun on his camera and that didn't work either, but it did on my...
