While in manual mode and adjusting the exposure to "0" (what the camera determines in correct exposure), I can click one more stop (making it darker) and the meter is still on 0. I have to make an addition click (stop of exposure) to get the meter to move to the + or - side. In other words, the camera's meter allows me two exposure setting at the 0 meter mark. Does anyone else have this issue? My former a300 and a580 never did this. Any idea what's going on. It doesn't affect my shooting as I...

I just received my first DSLR as a gift (Sony a58) and I purchased the Tamron AF 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD IF Macro for it. Perhaps it's just being new to photography but I'm getting frustrated in trying to get this lens' EXIF information set so that Lightroom's filter catalog by lens will recognize shots taken by it.Any suggestions?

I've been shooting Sony (A300 and A580) for a few years now and bought an a65. It has the 24mp resolution sensor and also 12 and 8 can be selected. The Sony A7S, unlike the A7 and A7R, maxes out at 12mp vs 24mp. From what I've read, they went with 12mp for better low-light performance. Does that mean that if I set my a65 to 12mp that it will do better in low light?

Bought an alpha 58 about a year ago with the kid lens. Worked great for a while but right now it's basically unusable with autofocus. The camera goes in and out of focus repeatedly, not landing on a focus level, sometimes for a full minute if you hold the shutter button down. Or during video taking it will just constantly move focus. This isn't user error, this just happens all the time no matter the lighting or anything. The funny thing is that if I set it to manual focus, when it's focused...

Hi there, My husband just received his 30 year long service award with the company he is employed with.  There are several options re awards one can choose from...one of them being a free camera out of a choice of seven.  BUT...we are not in the 'know' so to speak re cameras.  Therefore, we have been trying to research the different brands we can choose from...my nephew suggested we check out your website. Not going to lie...we are both OVERWHELMED...and were very excited when we noticed...

I have a Sony SLT A58 Camera and am disappointed in the viewfinder in the sunlight! I want to buy an extender to keep the light off the view finder so I can see the image better. I checked the specs on my LCD view finder and Sony claims they are 2.7" X 3"???? I measured the view finder and it measures 3" X 2"???? I just wanted to make sure whatever extender I purchase will fit? I have seen ads for a NEX 3/5 that measures 2.7" X 3" and wanted to know if this will fit my camera? I don't...

I recently had a small accident with my A200 where I was trying to get a shot low down and near the ground. I either jarred my arm or hit my leg but the result was that the camera slipped from my hands and hit the ground. It was only about a 1 foot drop if that but it was enough to kill the SuperSteady Shot and in turn also messed up the sensor position. I'm not hopeful of repairing it given that I've seen prices listing about £120 so I'm also considering newer models. The problem I have is...

Hello I just bought the A58 camera and the viewfinder is unreadable or viewable during the day time. especially when the sun is directly out. I find it strange that it has such a nice OLED viewfinder with 1.5 million pixels and such but the brightness setting only goes up to +1 and that the low res LCD display has many options for brightness , as if they're expecting you to use the LCD all the time. It seems further compacted by the camera putting a ton of noise into the image while using it...
