I was in the park today shooting the flowers in UV and Insect-D-sight, but had also brought along my Sony A6000 and FE 70-200/4 OSS lens.
Hence I decided to try a few of the picture effects available through the Picture Effect+ App, which is free to download via the Playmemories App. There are a total of 13 effects: Partial colour, HC B+W, Soft focus, HDR Painting, Rich B+W, Miniature+, Watercolor, Illustration, Toy camera+, Pop colour, Posterization, Retro photo and Soft High-Key+.

I have always wanted to shoot bird-in-flight, but never been successful, even with the Canon 7D and Sony A77. With the purchase of the Sony A6000, I wondered if this now be possible especially with the Sony FE 70-200/4 which has pretty fast autofocus. Continue reading Sony A6000 AF-C
