Now this isn't purely related to portrait photography, but it is where i normally encounter this problem. I've been shooting a good few years with an NEX-6 using live view. Now I've switched to a D750, I'm using the viewfinder a lot more for many reasons. When I'm shooting a person, I want to focus on their eye using single point AF, works great, but I keep finding myself wasting a lot of space on the image due to the focus points being concentrated in the middle of the image. If I'm...

I have a Sony RX10 mk2 which I've barely used a I've struggled to find a use for, I bought it because I've had a lot of use of the RX100 and particularly like the slow motion on it.  However while it offers a good bit more range than the RX100 with the larger size I generally prefer taking the NEX-6 with the 18-200mm or the D750 with the 28-300mm. The mk3's 600mm reach looks like it would make quite a difference and after digging out the 150-600mm for the D750 to take some quick shots I've...

Hi  I was wondering if you guys could assist me. I was using my NEX-6 with a Pentax AF200s flash and it worked, no issues. Today I tried a Sigma EF-500 ST but didn't work... Strange..  I tried the Pentax AF200S and that too stopped working. Did I somehow damage my Hotshoe? The Pentax is rated at 7.7v and the Sigma 6... what would have caused the fault? And how would I test this?  Thanks

Hi friends, this is my first post. I own a5100 camera, and im happy, but im thinking to buy used NEX6 for EVF and for the greate price in the used market nowadays (NEX 7 and a6000 are out of my budget). Do you think NEX6 is stepback in IQ? I know I get 16mpx vs 24mpx sensor, but I thought NEX6 would be better in low light situations due a higher pixel size. Howerver Dxomark scores rates NEX6 worst than a5100 in low light ISO. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

I know this seems quite basic but I can't seem to figure it out (haven't been able to find anything that compares it quite so well) Is it really just the megapixel count (and the few updated features...? and if so, are the lenses interchangeable? what are the advantages (other than better features at some point, higher megapixel rate?) is there anything technical i'm missing out on? i'm asking because i'm just about to invest in a camera system. Sony seems to be the most admired for lowlight...

Hi! I have a NEX-6 and an a99v. Both are very good for most things. but low light high ISO is not one of those things. How is the D3 compared to modern mirrorless like a6300, a6500, a7 Mk2 etc in terms of AF speed and accuracy in low light and also noise levels at high ISO. I'm talking about shots at sunset or lower light levels. I will not climb mountains or walk around for the whole day with this kit so weight is not a high priority. Technical quality with 12MP will be plenty good enough...

Hi: Likely a newb question - but I just upgraded from my NEX-6 after 5 years to an A6300. I have of course read much about the overheating/shutdown when shooting video (and also sometimes when shooting stills.) In any event, I got it yesterday and have been playing with it for about an hour or two each night - very light stuff, just setting up menus, taking test shots while sitting on my couch, reviewing them and deleting them,  Both nights I've noticed the camera getting very warm to the...

Hi: I've been working with my NEX-6 for about 5 years, until it has sadly started failing - so I have an A6300 coming.  My main day-to-day lens is the kit 18-55, mixed occasionally with the 16mm with the ultra-wide extension attached.  I also have the 55-210 because I wanted a longer zoom - but find I rarely use it because of the hassle of changing lenses and being stuck at a low end of 55 until I decide to switch back to the kit lens. As such, I've been looking closely at the 18-105G to...
