In order to get the HSS the flash must be off camera? I’m amateur and I got a nissin i40 for my a6000, but It seems I couldn’t make it on camera. I never got the HSS indication as you did here in this video. I was trying to dark the background too. Many thanks…

Domi 'nans says:

wow, nice work!
I’m planning to get the a6000, do you have experience with the zeiss 16-70? how does it perform? any flaws with that lense?

greetings from germany! 🙂

Tim Gander says:

Were you really on a shoot for a magazine? hmm

Yoko Hoda says:

How much you cost for your’e model?? where can i contact her 🙂

Sammy Diaz says:

YOU are awesome Gary! Thanks for the vids!

Wing Wong says:

+1 on the Phottix Odins. LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Got 1 transmitter and 2 receivers. Got 5600HS(D)’s on the receivers and I can independently adjust the power on each one while still making use of HSS to kill/reduce ambient. Great for when you don’t want to dink with taking a softbox down to adjust the flash power level…

Tom Tim says:

Hi Gary, do you know if those 3 nice Sigma dn Art primes (19, 30, 60mm) allow the usage of all the ‘native’, AF functions on the a6000? Appreciate it!

Matt Halpain says:

wow, this is amazing how you demonstrate in real time the effects of various settings of the camera to take her photo

jerrid mutter says:

Awesome job Gary. I wish you were here so I can intern for you. Just got your lightsphere professional and commercial kit. Driving my wife crazy taking so many pictures of here

Amar Agic says:

Hey Gary, Would you recommend the SEL70200G lens? I’m assuming that’s the one you are using in this video. Also what lens would you use for taking pictures of landscape, buildings etc

133faceman says:

Shots look amazing

lupadula says:

do you know if it is possible to 
use high speed sync with this camera, using a external flash , and a trigger?
i cannot find anything on the menus


Arthur Gonzales says:

WOW! Your ability to capture the shot is already to notch, BUT you’ve certainly mastered this model. I’m going to watch your full tutorial tomorrow on this cam. I picked it up because of your amazing clips.

I’m looking forward to bringing this camera to life!

Peter T says:

Thanks for taking the time to make these awesome videos!

in5omniac says:

Don’t really like the shadow created by the light! I doesn’t look at all natural! But it’s nice to see what an a6000 can do!

deepcore123 says:

Gary,Is that a monitor next to you that is hooked up to the A6000 (if yes, brand and model please)?Are you using it to review the still shots or the camera taking the video?

David Lustrup says:

what do I have to buy to get my a6000 to work with high speed sync? also I head that the mitros loses HSS function the second you change the position of the head, making it pretty much useless for putting into  a beauty  dish or softbox

kipling1957 says:

How do get such high flash sync shutter speeds? Is this one of the feature of the a6000. Incredible! Thanks.

Federico Canuti says:

Great video, Nice ideas from your videos.
Could you explain how you get high speed sync with external transmitters?

Matt Halpain says:

amazing how your lightsphere portrait kit does magic to a photo of a woman in the cloudy weather

carey lee says:

What would happen if you shoot in manual mode instead of TTL? Can you still get the same results?

Harry Peckover says:

What is the best all-around lens for the Sony a6000 for multipurpose that is under $600?

Sagan Android says:

Using an off-camera flash (slave mode) with my built-in flash, I hit a big problem with the Sony A6000.

When the off-camera flash is fired, the resulting picture is actually far *darker*. Even when in full Manual mode with ISO locked, the same thing happens. I’m not in TTL mode, so the camera can’t be decreasing the power of the flash.

And just before anyone goes there, this difference is not explainable by shutter speed. And, i was shooting at only 1/80th of a sec anyway.


what’s her name? is she real model or ?

Ruthle Music says:

im confused. when you want more light, you bumped up the iso to 400. why dont you just lower the shutter speed ?

Tinh Dinh Thien says:

Which camera and lens do you use for the video part?

asudewe says:

what is the flash?

artimachtpartyy says:

pure beauty, even when shot with an old mobile phone

andrewvanrhoberts says:

What camera would you recommend under 1000$? I am mostly into filmmaking.

Jiří Němec says:

typical photographer 😀 doesn’t say that she looks good so the photos are the best…he says photos are the best we have ever done, this lens is amazing 😀

Jeremy Gray says:

Great video.  Just wondering why you don’t focus on the eye with the smallest spot and not use face detection either ?
