Sony A6000 — Manual vs. Auto Settings

I’m loving the Sony A6000 mirrorless camera.  I have passed down my Nikon D5100 to my daughter.  🙂  After a tumultuous start with it, I’ve decided that I really like it.  I was having trouble with it the first time I took it out, but I was using the “recommended” settings that I had seen on several Web sites.  Well, let me tell you, I went right back to what I knew were the correct settings for what I needed!  I shoot almost everything in manual, in RAW.  While the auto settings on this camera are quite good, I seem to have better luck with the manual settings as I think they should be.

One of my favorite “features” of this camera is its size — I truly can carry it with me everywhere now.  The size of this camera and its lenses is about half of my “small” Nikon D5100 and lenses.  I have no problems carrying the Sony A6000 in my normal purses and if I see someplace I want to stop at, I can.

These were taken during my last visit to John F. Burke Nature Preserve in Farmers Branch TX.  Love the diversity of the insects I’m able to find every time I go there.
