Just got a Sony a6000 with a dum adapter to use with my Nikon 50 1.4 and 105 2.5 ai lenses. Can someone help me with setting up the camera, have changed to shot without lens, using a priority, pictures seem over exposed. ISO is set to auto, should I set to 200 or what. Thanks

I suggest setting a fixed ISO number, probably 400 or 800. You want a fairly high setting to get fast shutter speeds as the lenses aren't stabilised.

Set peaking to low sensitivity, yellow.

I shot with the A6000 for many years prior to upgrading to the A6600. With legacy lenses I used M-mode and set the Shutter speeds letting ISO find its own setting. If well exposed ISO of 800 or 1600 is OK with the A6000
