In Topic: Changing Shutter speed on a6300? And a good 1.8 lens that is affordable?

19 April 2018 - 01:05 AM

Yeah some of the spaces in which I am being asked to shoot are confining. Unfortunately the folks wanting video have zero clue about how it is done or what one needs to achieve a shallow depth of field. And they expect everything to be easy and fast. *sigh* 

 

After waiting a loooong time for the search function to come back I found this lens...

I wonder how good this would be in my situation. Low light shooting will be a must in many cases over here.

 the shutter,Im pretty sure..will either be the rotating wheel at the back or the wheel on the top right.. you can change in the menu which one.. between Iris and Shutter.. for either of those two wheels..  there is a cheap 1.8 50mm ($300) approx Sony lens.. the a6300 doesn't have internal body stabilization so you will have to buy a Sony lens to have steady shot..(a6500 does).. its not a bad little camera really.. great for gimbals..

 

I found it, though it wasn't exactly easy. it's a really odd setting. 

 

50mm is not all that wide to me. I wonder if there is anything a bit wider that isn't fish eye? Searching Amazon from here is ridiculously painful to do. It usually errors out. Searching anything from here is tough. 

 

Any recommendations with links is really appreciated.

Never ever EVER pay by anything other than Credit Card or Pay-Pal. You are just asking to be ripped off. You were badly treated and that sucks, but as another said above, if it is not broken, do not try and fix it. 

 

My experience with older projectors and cameras is when they break, by another because everyone I have ever tried has been a complete turd on a stick, a liar, a charlatan or worse.
