Hello, has anyone had similar cases? My camera constantly rotates the photo by 90 degrees under any settings and modes. I've tried updating software, changing batteries and memory cards, resetting settings. Nothing helped.

So I have an Sony a6000 with the basic kit lenses and I’m considering one of two options. 1. Buy a new lens for my a6000 (probably a tamron 18-300mm stabilized lens) for around $600-700. 2. Buying a budget MFT camera (hopefully no more than $400) and a couple starter lenses to see if micro four third is for me. So far I am considering the olympus omd e-m5ii. Buying the lens seems like the simplest option but my long term goal is to have a weather sealed set up that I can use for everyday...

Has anyone tried both?  Is their a dramatic difference in image quality at their longest ends? Reason: Torn between these two lenses. My priority is getting to at least 300mm. The versatility of the Tamron is nice, but I like the slightly extra reach and programable focus hold of the Sony. The image quality will probably decide it for me.  Size and weight are ideal on both. Body will be A6000 Thank you!

My a6000 keeps saying something about a blue ray in the video quality setting, what does it mean?

I'm not sure if I'm on the right forum so I apologize in advance. I have a Sony a6000. I recently took pictures and I can see them in the gallery, but when I try to look at the older pictures, they don't show and it says unable to display. I put the SD card in the computer and all the photos show there. Why is it not showing on the camera? I also noticed that the ones that show on the camera are in a different folder so I tried to move one picture that from a different folder or the ones that...

New to the Sony A6000 and I can’t see myself buying another camera any time soon. I’m playing around with the 50-210mm lens and action shots. Lock On focus doesn’t seem to work and I’m finding adjusting focus in action to be hard. Does anyone have any recommendations or advice?  For now I’m shooting on auto ISO, shutter speed 1/800 and continuous high.

Hello! I know I just made another thread but I felt this is a seperate topic. I shoot using a modified A6000 Sony camera, using either a 70-180mm F2.8 or 100-400mm lens. They work fine, but I can see the benefits of a telescope over a zoom lens creating better images. However, I am using a Star Adventurer mount and thus limited to weight. Most telescopes anything more than 250mm (such as the RedCat) easily exceed the weight limit, and id rather not try all the funky mods people do to fit way...

Hoping someone can give me some guidance. Hi, I'm new to the forum, so greetings everyone. Over the past couple of years I've replaced my Nikon kit with Canon. One of my main photographic interests is Civil Aviation. I use an 80D which I can only describe as brilliant with a mk2 ef 100-400mm L USM. I am normally positioned around 3 miles from the threshold of the Runway in an open field with airtraffic close by I have recently traded in a Sony a6000 for a Canon M5 mk1. I also have a Canon...

So I was transferring images from my camera to my computer by a wire and i accidentally stood up because of an emergency, and my camera fell about 2 feet on the carpet it wasnt on a very surface but it was also plugged in by a wire so that stopped mitigated the fall a bit as well. Anyways there is no physical damage done to the camera, its totally fine there was just some pressure but now when i turn the camera on, it turns on then off.. turns on then off again, again! Guys im worried please...

Had a frustrating walk with my NEX-5R and A6000 (bought in 2013 and 2016 respectively) in just above freezing temperatures where the batteries kept saying they were exhausted. I could get a few more photos out of them by warming them up inside my gloves and when I got down lower and the day warmed up a little my A6000 said there was actually 93% battery left, while the 5R still had 2 bars on the battery meter. Is susceptibility to cold something that gets worse with age, so new batteries...
