Hello, I'm going to buy a Sony A6300 soon. Since this is a complex camera (much more complex than the A55 I'm currently using), I think it's worthwhile to invest a few dollars in an external guide book for the camera (unfortunately Thom Hogan only produces books for Nikon cameras.). Can anyone recommend such a book? Thanks! gallery at https://www.flickr.com/photos/7205719@N05

When I run the sensor cleanining mode on my a55, I feel a vibration, but when I do it with my a6000, there is no vibration. Is there something wrong with cleaning mode on the a6000? Rick

Hello, I currently use the A55 with the 18-250mm, 10-20mm and 30mm f/1.4 lenses. The A55 has served me well for five years, but it's starting to show its age (loses connectivity with lenses, occasionally produces wildly over- or under-exposed images, etc). In addition, the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 always back focused on it, so I've used manual focus (thank god for the EVF), and now the other two lenses also focus less reliably. The obvious solution would be to replace my system with the A6300,...

So here I go again.... I currently have an SLTA55 - with a Tamron 18 - 270 lens. Love it, but time for a new one as the SLTA55 has had some recent problems. I even sent it away to see if it could be fixed. Today spent some time at a camera store, just looking at different cameras. Looking at wanting to spend around $2500 max (but of course can be talked into more if needed). A little about me: - majority of time I am shooting landscape/vacation pictures - could be europe - could be...

so with the a6300 now having min shutter speed with auto iso as a feature I'm hoping this camera will have it too. I have a much older a55 and looking to swap out the body for this a68, although I'm tempted to altogether switch over to a6300 or if they release the a5xxx equivalent. One no website preorder says shipping mid-may so we could also just wait and see

A favorite feature of mine with the SLTs is the auto-focus during video.  It is restricted to F/3.5, but works better than any other Sony camera I've tried (haven't got my hands on A7Rii yet though). Has anyone use the LA-EA4 with the A7s while taking video?   Should I expect the same?  I know it won't match my A77ii, but the specs say it is the same as my old A55.   And while I am asking, does focus confirmation still work when using other apertures like F/1.4? Thanks in advance.

After months of agonizing over what my next camera will be I just pulled the trigger on a Sony refurburished A7ii and 24-70 (hope its not one of those review copies... maybe being a refurb some of the complaints in early reviews were fixed by Sony, here's hoping for a good copy). It was between the A7ii and the D750 at the end of the day it came down to size and weight, for the D750 I wanted the awesome Sigma 24-105 but that combination came in ~4lbs. My wife and I take an overseas trip once...

If I use external flash HVL-F43AM (even wireless) with Sony SLT A55 I got to choose wireless in the camera and then I need some settings on external flash before I could use. So far so good no problem. But in case if I do not want to use external flash just want to use built in camera flash in that case am I suppose to un-do some setting in the camera to use built in camera flash? If so how? Please someone guide me. Thank you in advance.

Hi, I want to use macro lens and take some shots for focus stacking. There is one thing which is not clear even I have referred online tutorials. This is what I am doing: Camera (SLT A55) on Tripod, Aperture Mode , Macro lens 90mm, F 5.6 or 8, Manual Mode. ISO 100. If camera is set on tripod and using manual mode, just using focus ring how come I can shot various focus point of the desired subject unless I move camera a little bit? Can anyone give me some hits please and oblige. Thank you
