    I hate this part, I've been taken pics for a while and was shooting a canon 6d but having issue with my back and neck so I needed to get something a lot lighter.

    I bought a A6000 for me and one for my wife, just haven't told her her I sold her canon too yet. Always looking to learn more and hope to have some fun in the process.

    My name is John.

    Haha - not sure what I would be more worried about, my intro, or my Wife's reaction to selling her stuff!

    Welcome aboard. This is a great and knowledgable forum. Loads of tips/tricks already out there, but if you can't find a thread with the answer, just post away - always happy to help!

    And don't forget to share your spoils!

    I did the same, minus selling off the wife's equipment :)

    She was happy with the new camera and didn't mind that I had put all of our canon stuff for sale, the only problem so far is I can't use my imac to do filmware updates.
    Thanks for the warm welcome and if anyone has suggestions for the update I would be glad hear them.

    You should be able to do the updates as long as you're running a pre-Yosemite (MacOS 10.10) OS. If you've already upgraded, then your only option is (A) to find a friend who hasn't, or (2) one who is running Windows, or (iii) wait until the Sony software division discovers that it's 2014 already and starts issuing firmware updates for current OSs. :rolleyes:

    Welcome to this forum John! I'm sure you'll love it, very friendly, without any doubt the most friendly forum I've experienced so far!

    Do you have pictures to share already?

    No pics yet, have been a little busy with the snow. Just glad we never got it as bad as Buffalo so far.
