    MF assist on a6000

    The Sony a6000 has a feature which offers a magnified image area for checking manual focus. Unfortunately, this is not as well implemented as it is in the earlier NEX models which had a dedicated button for 'MF assist'. On the a6000 one is obliged to go into the menu each time to use the...

    a6000....some queries

    After using NEX 3 for several years I now have a brand new a6000 sitting unused on my table. I have pretty much worked out most of the set up as it's not that different in essence, however I have a few questions that many folk here will know so here goes; 1) Does anyone know the safe...

    Info about 'lightroom' and 'Nik suite'

    I am currently using RawTherapee quite successfully to edit ARW (sony RAW files) although I am not very proficient yet as the software is quite complex (to me anyway!) Fortunately, I understand some of the technicalities associated with image editing as I was trained as a technical photographer...

    Lumix GM5 in the UK..??

    A few weeks ago I was perusing the camera section of John Lewis (a large department store which is "never undersold") branch in Cambridge UK and happened upon the GM5 which had hitherto been below my radar. There were two versions on display and I spent some time playing with the version with...

    SD cards for NEX 3

    Since starting with my NEX 3 in June 2011 I have only used 'ordinary' SD cards both 'Scandisk' and 'Lexar'. As posted elsewhere I have grown to admire the image quality of NEX 3 and have produced several 20x16 inch prints of amazing clarity, acutance and resolution.... ......However, I have...

    NEX 3/kit lens...not so shabby!

    I've been pleased with my NEX3&kit zoom which has replaced my pentax DSLR to good effect since June 2011. During that half year I have been more and more impressed with both camera and, more importantly, the kit zoom. All over the web there are statements from 'authorities' claiming that the...

    Please help with NEX info.

    Could you NEX owners please help me with some vital info? I am wanting to buy a NEX3 as it is apparently ideal for my uses except for it's flash facility. NEX, like many 'digicams', uses a preflash when in it's auto modes. This makes it impossible to use a slave triggered flash head, which...

    NEX socket pins and flash

    Has anyone succeeded in 'hacking' the plug socket on NEX? Does anyone know what the various pins do? Is it true that the 'pre-flash' cannot be turned off? Thanks for any help,...I need to know the answers to the above before I decide whether to buy NEX or give it a miss!
