  1. This is a fine camera with a lot of capability🎥>空 Pleased with the purchase and still exploring all of the camera's features and applications.

  2. Got an A6000 at Xmas and just starting to look an additional lens. Thanks for clearing this up for me.

  3. Dude, you really should not confuse people like that. Cause all you said in second part is.. WRONG! It doesn't metter if lens designed for crop or full frame – you need to multiply focal length in any case! Focal length is something independent from sensor size. I mean 50mm FE lens will give you exect same picture size as 50mm E lens on cropped sensor! What you should keep in mind is that you don't want to use E lenses on full frame cameras (they will give you image only at circle center area). And you totally can use FE lens on crop (and it will work just like E lens). And yes, 50mm lens on crop camera will provide picture similar to picture from 75mm on full frame (does not metter was lens designed for full frame or cropped sensor)

  4. Both lenses designed for APS-C and Full Frame need to apply the crop factor for the focal length. So the 35mm E and the 35mm FE have exactly the same angle of view.

  5. A 56mm f1.4 on apsc body will look exactly the same as that of a 85mm f1.4 on Full frame body. And yes, the exposure on full frame will be better than apsc, but that is not due to aperture. Unlike focal length, you don’t need to calculate an equivalent aperture. Aperture is a physical phenomena associated with lens opening. Same in both apsc and full frame. The better exposure will be due to the better reception of lights by a full frame sensor as it has more surface area than cropped sensor. Use full frame lens on apsc. It is absolutely lossless. You have to compromise on price and size though. Note: compression will not be same in 56mm apsc and 85mm full frame, because focusing distance of 56mm lens will be in the 50cm range(generally) and 85mm lens will be in 80cm range(approx).

  6. Just started photography and upgraded from kit lens to 18-105 don’t have a lot to put toward lenses would you Suggest zoom or prime lenses for a budget shooter

  7. Very informative thank you for a great video. I have just come across your channel and subscribed, I am not sure if you may have covered this in a previous video. Could you please explain or go through the procedure to manual focus on a lens. I believe Neewer/Meike lens and possibly other third party lenses will fit e mount but have manual focus only. I am new to photography and I am a little worried about this procedure. They seem to have good reviews and are a lot cheaper than Sony lenses. I do have the Sony A6000 camera, so help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

  8. Hi, i m from india and i have a confusion in buying sony a6000. On amazon i have 2 options – 1) sony aplha a6000 mirrorless digital camera, which cost around 54k inr
    2) sony aplha a6000 Y digital slr camera, which cost around 50k inr
    They both come with 16-50 and 55-210 mm lenses
    Then whats the difference between them?
    Please do answer!!!

  9. Can you give me some suggestions for a prime lens, that's around $200-$350? Cheaper would be great lol bc I do it for a hobby. Although I've been told that I need to sell some of my work but science and saving the is my main career lol..

    Thanks in advance 🙏🏾

  10. hi, Kyle I am photographing waterfalls that are at a significant distance- what lense would you recommend for my a6000? 55-210 sony or???

  11. ""….How to use an A-mount lens on an E-mount body

    Since A-mount and E-mount have different diameters, they are not interchangeable. However, you can use an A-mount lens on an E-mount body by using a Mount Adaptor.

    NOTE: You cannot use an E-mount lens on an A-mount body…."

  12. Really nice video…would love if you post pictures taken after you explain the camera tips and settings…also i wanted to know if i should buy a lens or use an extension tube for macro?

  13. The lens that came with my sony 6000 does not zoom in/out. It has a ring and a lever around it that supposed to be the zoom however the ring is not working only the lever for the power zoom. What could I have done wrong?

  14. I was going to get the Sony 85mm 1.8 (not the Batis) off of you but I didn't see the link in the description

  15. I'm a stylist and I would like to capture all the hair colors I create.. I am also an amateur with cameras. I have the a6000– what lens would you recommend?
