Hello, I bought an OM-D E-M10 Mark II to supplement my Sony a58 last month. I’ve used it on a couple of trips and I really enjoy it. For the moment I’m quite happy with using the E-M10 + 14-42 EZ as my main walk-around camera, with the a58 in backup for telephoto. I have one major concern with the E-M10, though, which is related to focus, even on static scenes. In S-AF (or S-AF + MF), I would expect focus to be locked when I half-press the shutter button and hear the confirmation beep....
As an amateur enthusiast with a limited budget for camera equipment, I've been looking at upgrades with an approximate budget of around £500 ($625 or €590 at present!). I use a Sony A58 which as you'll know is an entry level SLR type camera, but in general I have found it pretty good. I have a bunch of used Minolta AF lenses, my kit lens (the 18-55 SAMII) and a cheap Sigma 70-300. The main issues I have with my current gear is with focus and general sharpness.

My new A58 won't trigger my 80s studio flash- apparently the A58 hotshoe resistance is about 150 ohms compared with about 25 for my Canon A1. My recently-dead A55 fired it with no problems. Is there a workaround ( a circuit I could build, perhaps) that doesn't involve spending money I don't have?
Hi Guys, Sorry for the noob question....I had a search around, but couldn't really find the correct answer. I have a Sony a58, which I find great for shooting stills, but I just can't seem to get good video footage regardless of what settings I use - Footage always looks really noisy and dull. I see people on youtube etc, posting some great footage shot with this camera, and I'm mystified as to how they're able to shoot such good footage. Initially I shot in mp4 format, but recently I have...
Hi all, I just wonder that can a6000 use OTG USB to connect to a mobile (and display the capture photo on the screen of the mobile) and also connect to an IR Remote, this remote will trigger the camera to take a picture? On this video IR remote can connect to a6000 and take a photo by pressing the button: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77etbCkjexs And this one shows that a58 can connect to an Android phone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKS_XGxxU-s I just bought an a6000 and ask myself if I...
