My Sony a3000 buttons aren't working and I've tried everything in my power to find a fix, but to no avail. The display button, exposure button, navigation buttons, dial wheel function, movie button, and playback button doesn't work. However the mode dial (e.g to switch from Program to Manual) and the Finder/LCD button (to switch between Viewfinder and LCD) works. The camera doesn't auto focus either. Interestingly however, since the dial to switch between shooting modes (e.g. from Program to...

Hello everyone. Yesterday I received my flash Meike MK320. My intended use was to put it on TTL and attach it to my A3000 but, for my surprise, TTL mode didn't work well. All photos come out underexposed and the information of ISO and aperture don't reflect in the flash's LCD panel. If I set my camera on aperture priority and set it to F5.6, the flash only displays F3.5 and ISO50. If I change aperture on the fly, the flash will remain at F3.5. AFAIK the A3000 has the same MI shoe as the NEX...

Before anyone tells me off, I did try searching, honest. So if this has been asked and answered before, my sincere apologies. My Nex 3n and A3000 have a habit every now and then of taking a burst of shots. I have tried to imagine how this has occurred, so double check the settings - it's definitely set to 'single shot'. Did I press on the shutter a bit harder than usual? No, it isn't that. Has the camera decided that it needs to bracket the shots? I don't think so, since it was in Manual...

Hello everyone, I have a few legacy lenses lying around which are not in good working condition, and I will be investing in some more manual focus lenses. I have a Vivitar 75-205 f/3.8 (Vivitar made) that is falling apart and I consider just an overall average performance lens A Minolta 50mm f/1.7 MD with the aperture lock not working, damaged coating, damaged thread and sloppy focus ring A Craiq 135mm f/2.8 (Yaschica made) with fungus, overall average performer and a perfect Helios 44-2 58mm...

Hello guys and gals, can someone upload a photo of a 77 filter with a lens that has a filter thread under 55mm, preferably on small body like a Sony A3000 or even nex style body. Thank you. --We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public. -Abraham Lincoln

Searching for a flash for the Sony MI shoe of my A3000, I came across Travor. They really are very helpfull over emails and they respond quickly, but I couldn't find any info on the net for their products. Anyone came across or used these flashes? They informed me that SL585 and SL685 are available for the Sony MI shoe and that they can be bought directly from them for 100$ or 110$ respectively. Travor SL-685S Travor SL-585S

Considering whether to get an A5000 or A3000 as backup bodies for my NEX6. Role would be general travel photos with E 30/16/UWA & tele shots with an A adapter and 55-300. Also for use with old MF lenses. From what I can see: they share a similar sensor, have similar menu systems; the trade-off is size vs (low-res) EVF. I'm tempted by the EVF though as first use would be in the sunny tropics... Wondering also if the A3000 can add the optical corrections to JPEG shots with the 16-50 too? Anyone...

****EDIT**** Problem resolved. It turns out there was a loose/incomplete insertion of the flash in the adapter OR adapter into the hotshoe. Backed everything out, connected the flash to the adapter THEN inserted adapter into the hotshoe and the contacts were good.  **** I just purchased an A3000 and realized that my existing flash (HVL-F42AM) would not work since it was for the proprietary hotshoe on the a300 & a350 I had been using. I purchased an adapter (ADP-MAA) so that I can continue to...
