In my seemingly never ending quest to decide on a new camera (I think it has been less than a  week, but feels about a year) I was pointed towards some of the A6XXX cameras paired with a bunch of unstabilised Sigma primes.  Given that the only the A6500 has IBIS how would this affect things? (Another thing I am considering is an old A6000 paired with a FF Prime, again probably unstabilised, so I can get a FF body someday and not waste the lens) The internet seems very conflicted on IBIS and...

Hi, I am hesitating between buying Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX80 + 14-42 mm + 45-150mm and a sony a6000 16-50mm + 55-210mm. I am leaning towards panasonic because of the better video and the in-body stabilization but on the other hand I know sony is meant to have slightly better image quality. I am not going to shoot a lot of videos and image quality is my primary concern, could anyone advice me whether the difference in image quality sony> panasonic is a visible one or should I go for panasonic?

I been considering switching to Adobe Bridge as my photo manager and organizer. I’ve been using digiKam for over a year and I’m growing sick of its weirdness. Before digiKam I had been using Fastone Image Viewer, which was simple and I loved, but I wanted photo tagging. I notice I never use digiKam’s photo editing and I’m growing more and more annoyed by the weird way it does things like file rename and search for files. I’m hoping Adobe Bridge can: Manage photo tags Import photos from my...

Hi, I own a A6000 Sony camera. I was taking photos of my family at the beach with the 55-210 lens, as my children often do not cooperate when they see me taking photos. My basic knowledge tells me closing aperture will give good overall focus. However, I was not able to get all the family members into focus. Here is one example:  f/6.3, 145 mm, sony A6000. Face covered with green is not in focus.  Is this an optical limitation of the long focal lengths or should I change my settings? Any...

Hi, I bought a second hand A6000 more than a year ago from a guy, which at the time still had some warranty on it (warranty has meanwhile passed). He told me he had set all setting to have output as flat/greyed out as possible. We shot only in RAW and post processed every image (which might be the reason for same). I now see that some images are very flat (grey in stead of lots of colors/HDR,/...), and some are not (even in same mode, same picture, same...).It seems kind of random to me when...

Hi, im looking to buy a telephoto lens (75-300) range for my sony a6000, but like all of the native lenses are super expansive and way past my budget. I'm wondering what some of the other good budget alternatives to it? I don't mind using adapters or manual focus.  my budget is roughly around 100$-300$

Hello guys, I normally shoot with manual lenses. Recently I was on a shoot where we shot with two Sony cameras and a mixed set of manual and AF lenses. There I discovered that my a7ii won't autofocus. All other lens controls work and the lenses autofocus does work on the other camera as well. The camera takes pictures normally otherwise and if I set the camera to manual focus the focus by wire of the lens does work and even activates the automatic focus-zoom. The camera has been dropped on...

Hi everyone! I’m new to this forum and in photography in general (I just bought a Sony a6000, it just arrived today!) Unfortunately the sensor was a bit dirty and I had to clean it (with just the tip of microfiber cloth) because there were black spot in the picture (especially with high aperture). Now the black spots disappeared but I noticed this kind of weird light (see the picture attached) and I wonder if is normal and is just some sort of flare caused by the source of light or is some...

I have sony a7iii for the past year, really happy with it and going on a safari (maasai mara and uganda gorillas) trip next month, this forum has convinced me to rent a 70/200 2.8 GM for the gorilla trekking in addition to the 100-400 i own. Will also bring sony 24-105 f4 and maybe sony 16-35 f4; along with a slightly battered sony rx100iii and our cell phones, but as it stands my wife will just be using binoculars in the long range viewing situations. I was thinking now that i'm going to...
