  1. Sony A7-lll Yet another firmware update (3.01)

    Am I seeing correctly,, did I just see/download v3.0"1" firmware update..??

    I don't know why but I just browsed across the Sony support bookmark I recently made for some reason and I saw 3.01...
  2. Minor update, Quite impressed with this camera's...

    Minor update,
    Quite impressed with this camera's ability to handle low light. Started off by using settings more along my A6000's settings lines (not knowing what to expect) and without really...
  3. Well, not so much the lens, more the filter on it...

    Ok, so I've just bought a Sony A7-lll a week ago.. Hmmm which lens? Ah, a Tamron 28-75mm f2.8, that will do for now, but what's this? Not a 67mm UV filter to be found in the shop. Ok I'll go down the...

    Been snapping just a few photos with the new camera, and that was before I had all of my full settings done and then finding it was in 'P' (Program) mode instead of my usual 'A' (Aperture) mode. Also...

    Well, picked it up this morning. Great looking camera. Bought a Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 Di III RXD lens, rather than use the 18-105mm crop lens off the A6000. Would have loved to buy the Sony equal 24-70...
  6. Been promising to buy one (A7 III) - Pick it up tomorrow...

    Been a little distracted for the past few months after buying a motorcycle, but now summer is coming to an end and the bike is up on the stands ready for winter to come and go, so I got an A7 III put...

    Cheers Wally,
    You know, I have had a "few" Fuji camera's in the past and they have yielded some awesome photos, but I just don't know anything about their newer models - pity..
    Oh heck, you...

    Yes, I sort of have the base semi-covered for the moment. That's the one reason I have never (well at least up until now anyway) strayed away from Nikon DLSR's. We all know that the cameras are...

    Happy New Year to all...
    Leuius, I hear you on that, and it's good advice,, and believe me that's the very argument going on in my head even right now, 3 weeks later. In many ways I think the A7-III...
  10. But which one - A7-III A7R-III or A9 - Right on the verge of buying...!!!

    Over the last 3 or 4 months now I've really become to finally get to understand and relish the capabilities of the A6000, which I have had now for about 3 or 4 years (can't remember which). You see...
  11. Why you shouldn't use too many 3rd party accessories on the A6000..!!

    Ok, I have found a great way to get around the horrible battery life in the A6000 - and it seems to work fantastically, and it's with a "3rd party accessory", but I don't think I'll be relying on too...

    Cheers Jay,
    I too am super happy that things are finally "working" the way I want them to, even if I have to carry an extra battery to get it.. I see a few A6300's and 6500's second hand now going...
  13. Final word on this "fix/cure",, I have now set...

    Final word on this "fix/cure",,
    I have now set this camera to it's maximum or what I term as "luxury" settings for my style of shooting. At last I can take the photo's I've always been wanting to...

    A slight twist in the tail/tale,,

    Yesterday, I had a club outing to attend to, an organized club event that I always take photos for, so I left the bigger Nikons at home this time and took the...

    Surely it hasn't been over 10 days since I first tried this - surely..!!

    Why am I so amazed..?? Because the 16,000 mah powerbank battery I am using is 'STILL' on 99 - 100%.. Sure I haven't been...
  16. Update a handful of days later,, Since my last...

    Update a handful of days later,,

    Since my last post, I was going to get another smaller Xiaomi 10,000mah powerbank because it is a lot smaller and much 'lighter'. I felt that the larger 16,000mah...
  17. Could this be the A6000's Ultimate (hopefully "FINAL") poor battery life solution..??

    I have posted many posts in this and other forums, in the vain hopes that I would cure the unacceptably poor life of the A6000's (and I guess the A6300 + A6500) FW50 7.2v 1080 mah battery. Even...

    A final word/update to my own thread...
    Well, I've had the A6000 for about 2 & 1/2 years now and as a summary I could say it can amaze me at times with its quality images but to be honest the poor...

    Both points noted and thank you both for those points..
    Actually, I might just invest in a 5v USB type wall charger to do my A6000 charging from now. Why not..?? I mean I've been charging cellphones...

    Steve, thank your lucky stars..
    This is an issue that affects some A6000's, but it "IS" a known issue. I guess I just drew the short straw when I bought this one. It happened right from day one. I...
  21. Sony A6000. Have I finally found a way to overcome the TERRIBLE battery life problem?

    Ok, I know there are new models of the A6xxx series out, and I have had my A6000 for about 18 months now but it's only taken a couple of hundred photos and for most of its life in my hands (bought...

    Sony A6000 - Life at last - I hope...!!!

    Well, I bought my A6000 just shy of a year ago and I was quite amazed at its capabilities. I also had a Nikon D600 at the time (actually I still have it but it's in the cupboard - 'somewhere'), I've...

    Thanks OkNoob,,

    Points taken... I've actually done a lot better since that day with my shots, and I think that the heat shimmers/ripples may well have been 90+% of my worries on that day... Many...

    Ok, first.. The original battery IS a Sony battery that came in the camera (new of course). Two others are Wasabi types. The camera shop that I go to has been ultra reliable with me for years and...
