Ok - I'm biting the bullet for feeling stupid but I'm just going to ask anyway. Feel free to howl me down. I have an a55. After a lot of research I decided on, and purchased a Metz 52AF-1 flash for Sony. Wanted something to act both one camera and wirelessly and be a master flash. As I understood it, the 52AF still had the mount for the proprietary Sony hot shoe not on of the new ones that go on the a99 for example. Despite having the hugest manual ever, I can't work out for the life of me...

I have had my A55 for about two years and really like it for my first SLR.  Today after a class on photography with SLR camera I was playing around with the settings on the camera.  The one in particular was the different types of displays during picture playback.  I had taken a couple of pictures in the Program mode and was reviewing them and what I noticed was in several of the pictures that contained overexposed areas in the shot when I had the histogram display up the areas that where...

Hi, I need any quick advice for taking firework photos. Does zoom lens with longer focal length or shorter will work fine? As I know Bulb mode is said to be good I wonder in SLT A55 if I can use any other settings too? I am thinking of Bulb Mode, Manual, ISO 100, Aperture 8 or 16. And should I use my Sony remote DSLR-2 for shutter or use the camera button? Please share you thoughts and oblige. Thank you in advance PS, firework will be held tomorrow evening.

I really love my Sony a55 with my 18-250 lens but it is really getting to be a pain to lug around. I'm thinking of switching over to the Oly OMD em10.  I'd like to get the 14-40 pro lens and the 40-150 zoom.  Has anyone switched from the Sony a55? Are you pleased with the change?

Hi, I've got a Sony SLT-A55 and when I forget to switch the camera off… the battery drains way to quickly. Reason: Power Save isn't working. Power Save is turn on. Tried to set it to 1 minute, 20 seconds, 10 seconds. Nothing happens. It stays on. Did a camera reset to the default settings. Power Save still doesn't work. The camera / LCD only turns off when the battery is exhausted. But even when the LCD is rotated, it won't go into Power Save. Any clues? What to do? Is 'Reset Default' the...

I'm pretty sure I have an auto-focus issue. Ran a test shoot with both my a55 and my a77 same lens, same settings. Started with the a55 M,S,A,C then the a77 same order M,S,A,C Please tell me I'm not crazy and what I should do about it. Sent it in for repair came back the same way. http://heidiryder.smugmug.com/A77-Autofocus-test/n-znh4q

I think I read about SLT mirror improvements since Sony released their first, a33 and a55, in the late summer of 2010. Wow, almost four years ago. I am still fascinated whenever I pick up my a55/Tamron 17-50/2.8 combo.... Now for the question: I wondered whether the SLT mirrors from APS-C SLTs introduced later would fit mechanically in my a55. Anybody in the know around here? And, should it fit,  is it worth to upgrade the mirror? In all of my use I never saw an issue so far. Thanks for your...

I have an A55 and a 58, 42 and 43 Sony flashes. ( I can't remember what the model number prefix letters are or which one of the 42 - 43 models is the newer version with the video light), but anyhow, that's the background. I have seen some vague references that the HX-400v can support "wireless" flash, but on the Sony site, the genuine Instruction Manual download does not mention it at all. I am looking to agument my A55 with an HX- 400 and I'd like to know if I can use any of my Sony flashes...

I have a sony A55  that has started to show a "cannot display image" when I try to review some pics that were taken previously,  The pics were displayed immediately after taking them.  When I hooked the camera to my lap top, the display on the lap top read  " file may be corrupted".  Any one ever run into this?  Why would the camera show the file one day, and not be able to do so two days later???    Any advice or ideas will be greatly appreciated!!
