a6000 questions

Before I go into a camera shop I figured I would try here...
I have an a6000 I'm going to take on a road trip and was wondering how to take a long exposure shot with it, can I do a long exposure shot taken from a dashcam like angle/shot, and anything else I might need to know? I have a Wide angle lens I like, along with a macro and telephoto lens. Any other tips as I plan on doing this trip on the cheap driving through the southwest(types of interesting shots other than a long exposure.)

the video I cannot speak to, i only shoot DSLR, there is enough information out there as well to teach you how to do long exposures. the camera appears to be pretty robust in features.
as for lenses, true wide angle lenses are good for vista shots, though you will still lose some with the smaller format. you'll find the telephoto sitting in the bag more often than not unless you have money for pro stuff...

For the long exposure, the easiest way would be to put it in Shutter Priority mode, set the shutter speed to your desired setting, and let the camera handle the aperture and ISO settings. However, I would recommend shooting in manual mode to better learn your camera and to give you more control over the settings.

Remember, for long exposure shots, it is imperative that the camera stays perfectly still while the shutter is open. If you do not have a remote shutter release, I would recommend using the timer built in to your camera so that the camera does not move when you push the shutter button.

I have to agree with the above posters. However, if you are wanting to take a long exposure to create an effect like flowing water looking like cotton you might need to add a darkening filter to your lens as a long exposure might let in too much light and burn out the image.
Just my 2 cents.
