Hello I'm a relative beginner and amateur photographer. I mostly take photos of my family--2 young kids running around, both inside and outside. I sometimes just use my phone camera for convenience, but obviously I get much better quality from my real camera. I'm shooting with an NEX-3N with a 50/1.8 prime lens. I'm mostly happy--it's a cheap system, very compact, takes nice-enough-for-me photos ,and is easy enough to use in full auto or if I want to play with speed/aperture settings. But...

I have a nex3n I bought a lens eyecup shade. A metal frame screws into the tripod socket and the eyepiece magnetically clips to the frame. However when i clip it on the screen rotates, i am assuming, that the sensor that detects the screen flipping up is being affected by the magnet. the sensor seems to be close to the hinged end of the screen. Is there a way to disable the screen flip detection, i never use it anyway and in the event that i need it can turn it back on. The only other option...

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...

Hey everyone so I just noticed my Sony NEX-5T has a focusing noise issue (its noticable when its pretty quiet) when autofocusing it's more present with a high shutter speed or focus close on things on my kit lenses but on my SEL50F18 it's constant in video & before I take a photo with it. If any of you have a NEX 5R/5T please test it out! If mine is defective I will take it back for repair it's very annoying Thank you so much! (: It sounds like this I found a video on Youtube I wonder if it's...

I just bought the camera a few weeks ago coming from the NEX-3N. I'm using the Sigma 30 primarily for my casual indoor family / dog pictures. Even though it only goes down to f2.8 my light is USUALLY good enough to come out with decently good photos (no flash). I was curious if anyone uses the built in flash for small/medium sized rooms for indoor photos and if so what are your preferred settings for both the flash and manual controls in general. For example, should I turn the flash...

Hi All, I've had my Sony Nex 3N for half a year now and I really enjoy it. My current lenses are the kit lens Sony SELP1650 and the zoom lens SEL55210 I would like to add a fast prime lens for all around and lower light use, travel, walking etc so I've narrowed down to the Sony SEL35F18 for $450 vs. Zeiss Touit ZE3218TE for $499 Reading reviews, it seems that the Zeiss is sharper and overall better IQ, but it doesn't have OSS, has a louder focusing sound, and doesn't auto focus as well as the...

I have a Nex-3n which I am primarily using an array of vintage lenses with. I'd like to step up to a better model. I've been looking at the A6000 for it's wifi ability and it's ability to be used with an android phone for remote shutter release. Also the camera body of the Nex3n is uncomfortable to use with heavy vintage lenses. And I find the focus peaking difficult to use outdoors in bright light due to the lack of viewfinder. As far as photo quality, is there really any improvement between...

Hi, I'm having the hardest time making a decision here. I'm going to be traveling at the end of the month, and I want to bring the best camera/lens combination that I can. Here's what I have: Sony NEX5N (with firmware update to support the 1650 lens) Sony NEX3N SELP1650 power zoom lens SEL16F28 lens (16mm pancake lens) So, my question is which camera should I bring, and with which lens? I realize a lot of this is subjective, but I'm interested in opinions even if they are just based on...
