The light was fantastic as i was driving along the narrow road by the banks of Loch Lurgainn, Assynt. By the time i reached this spot, got out the car and down over the rather soggy moorland it had all but vanished. This was taken under the shelter of a golf brolly where i ended up sheltering for a good 20mins whilst the rain and wind abated. The mountain across the Loch is Stac Pollaidh (pronounced Stack Polly)

Dun Carloway Broch, Isle of Lewis (Dùn Chàrlabhaigh). A bus load of tourists appeared so i went with a long exposure to hide them all although there is a ghost of a person in the Broch.

Also with the A7rii and Loxia 21mm

 Apologies for not posting anything recently. Auld maw is still out of action so i've not had much time to myself never mind for photography.

Can't remember where I got up to with posting of images so a few randomly chosen shots.
Birks of Aberfely

Seilebost beach, Isle of Harris

Hidden Harris beach, only visible at low tide

All shot with the A7rii and Zeiss Loxia 21mm. My favourite combo at the moment

The simple answer is Yes but it sounds as though you want to outsource the printing in which case, Maybe.
If that sounds a little weird then...
You can edit digital video in Photoshop and extract a single frame which you can print.
How large you can print it will depend on the resolution of the video.
If you have Photoshop, you can extract the single frame and look at it.  If not then you will need to find a sympathetic person to look at it for you.
If you are hoping a printing house will do it for you then I do not know ...john

I have a 30 second video of hummingbirds around a feeder. Is it possible to get a single image printed?

For me the principal reasons for the purchase of the a6000 were the size an weight with the added plus of the high pixel count. Like chap I am not interested in schlepping anything bigger or heavier. I already have a Canon 7Dll to fit that bill.

Lovely quiet scenes but I am not a B & W guy and honestly can't begin to appreciate them without their lost color.

My camera came equipped with a 6.8 volt battery and I added another Sony battery. I don't know which one was the original. Thanks for your reply.

The mAh is not a problem, it's the 7.4 volts that could possibly blow things like capacitors in circuit boards.

In my experience one problem is that genuine Sony batteries all have a micro chip in them that, among other things, tells the camera the percentage of charge remaining. The camera may or may not detect that it is using a counterfeit battery and could refuse to start.

What is certain is that if you use a battery grip it will not work if you use a counterfeit battery in #2 position. Other than that I have never had a problem with any counterfeit batteries that match the voltage of a genuine Sony battery. You may not get very good charging rates with them, as John says, "it can become a bit of a lottery".

To my knowledge all A mount Sony cameras use 7.2Volt, 1600mAh NP-FM500H batteries. I have never used an A330 so cannot be absolutely certain what it uses.

I very much doubt it will cause any problems.  I have had mixed success with non Sony batteries and it can become a bit of a lottery.
One I have is indistinguishable from a genuine Sony and the other just decided that it was exhausted at an inconvenient time. It was fully charged according to the charger but dead in the camera.  Recharging did nothing and I had to toss it....john

Congratulations on your new purchase.  It is a great camera but getting a tad heavy for an 'ole bloke so am using the A6300 more and more and "looking at the A7RIII.

The guys will tell you I am into pruning and in each of these I would take off half the sky and turn them into panos.

first one- all the action is in the glint on the water leading the eye to the groyne and the black hump in the water (wave or sandbank ? The black cloud halts the eye from moving out of the frame and I would crop it off to just above the central black tongue.  This gives a mu7ch stronger image in my view.

Similarly in the second one but not so pronounced.  All the action occurs below the horizon and anything above the horizon is not necessary....john

All A99 Minolta 28-75

First outing with my A99.  I decided to treat myself when a bargain appeared the other day.
