Does anyone know if it's possible to change the orange colour that is used for some text on the A58's EVF display?Most of the text is white, which is great, but when you change aperture or shutter speed (in A or S priority modes) the text turns orange. In overcast/shady/indoor locations this isn't a problem but when it's bright/sunny/high contrast I find that the orange colour is very hard to see and if you're trying to find a specific setting it's almost impossible to find it. I'm wondering...

Hi there, I'm looking to get a off camera flash sync cable for my Sony A58 to link with my Nissin Di622 Mk11. While not a newcomer to photography, off camera flash is definitely out of my expertise. Can anyone please suggest the correct kind of cable? Many thanks Linda

For a beginner, whether I should spend money on a new lens with warranty or an old lens which comes for half the price?

Hi, I have started learning photography and been experimenting on aperture and dof. The lens I am using is 18-55mm A mount lens, which has minimum f3.5 I found there is another prime lens 50mm one which has f1.8 but zoom in/ zoom out is not possible with that one since it's only 50mm. So is there any compatible lens for this one where it would have lesser fstop like atleast 2.0 and still have zoom in / zoom out ? Let me know if it's possible at least with other lenses with attaching an adapter.

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. While I can't fault the...

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, I was just wondering if there where any shutter release cable options out there for the a58? I had a look around and saw that the RM-VPR1 is compatible....but are there any others? Thanks

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...
