Hi! I'm new to this site, but it seems very helpful, and I thought I'd explain my current dilemma. I have an event coming up on the 24th, at night, and I have no idea how to shoot moving night pictures. So I guess my question would be.. how do take a picture of a moving object at night, and have it come out nice? Thank you in advance! :)

I have a NEX-6 camera with the 16-50 kit lens. I also have a Minolta 50mm legacy lens. I just thought I would check the relative focal lengths of the two lenses.  Using the 50mm, I adjusted the distance from a window until it just spanned one of the window panes. I then replaced the lens with the zoom lens and, at the same difference, I adjusted the zoom until the pane was also spanned. .I was surprised that the focal length on the screen of the NEX also showed 50mm. I would have expected...

The control dial (directly under the mode dial) on my NEX-6 is stiff and often won't turn. It's now very difficult to adjust the aperture. I am beyond warranty. Any suggestions?

Hi all,I need some help buying a new camera.This will be my first, more serious camera. For years I used a simple Sony Cybershot compact camera. I want to step up to a more advanced camera now.I want a (relatively small) camera which has the best image quality available for around €500 (I live in the Europe). I want it to shoot nice pictures both in daylight and at night.Because I want it to be small (not necessarily pocketable), I think a mirrorless camera or a high end compact is the way to...

All of a sudden, when I access raw images on my NEX-6 using Bridge or Finder (OSX 10.9.5), there are no longer thumbnails and the image file contains no camera/shot metadata. I did not have this problem previously. Does anyone know what went wrong and how to fix?

Hi all !I currently have trouble finding a good lens for my Nex6 when it comes to landscapes. I find the results quite unsharp with the 20mm lens I have right now, and I'm not sure the Sigma 19mm would give far better results on my camera.I've been considering buying the Zeiss 24mmf1.8, since it's said to be much sharper. Of course, the angle of view is different, but still, I would accommodate quite easily I think.However, I've just stumbled upon the Sigma DPM forum, and I feel like the...

Hi all !I currently have a Nex-6 with the SEL16-50PZ, the SEL20f2.8, the SEL35f1.8 and the SEL50f1.8.Recently, I've found out that I take most of my pics with the SEL50f1.8 (I love how sharp it is) and the SEL20f2.8 (Ok lens for landscapes, but a bit unsharp on the edges).My goal to improve my skills is to go with only one lens for the whole year to come, but I can't decide which one to take. I definitely love the SEL50f1.8, but it's too narrow to be versatile. The SEL35f1.8 is a bit odd: too...

Is there any truth in the rumour that the 16-50 lens currently bundled with the A6000 is an improved version compared with the one bundled with the NEX bodies? I've read that because of the 24MP sensor on the A6000, the QA has really been tightened up on the 16-50 to improve the performance to make it more suitable for the higher-resolution sensor. Just wondering...

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I enjoy reading through the message board but this is my first time writing. I'm looking to purchase a new camera something bigger then a point and shoot but smaller then a DSLR. I've narrowed my search down to the Sony a6000 and the NEX6. My previous camera I owned was a Canon G12 but I would definitely not call myself a master of it. I do enjoy the manual settings of the camera and have a very basic understanding of the features that camera presented...
