Summary: Wow! What a camera! Coming from a point and shoot this camera is just awesome! If you want to move up from a point and shoot and don't want a heavy DSLR this is the one to get.It's very portable and fast.
Excerpt: Been using this product for about a month now on a motorcycle voyage across America and it has held up very well. I like the fact that it it is small and lightweight compared to my traveling companions DSLR.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I intend to use it for travel and street photograhy. I like the size,wieght, and the features of this camera. I find that it is very noisey at 50000 iso but with that limitation I will work around it.
Summary: After 4 months of testing: An almost perfect mirrorless camera. Extremely comfortable grip, great shooting experience, lots of fun. Got by chance a rather sharp copy of the kit lens (reviews out there are horrible), even OK in the corners, very happy, specially because of the pancake size.
Excerpt: Due to a couple of questions I had about the different “value packages” that came with the a6000, I found myself reluctantly calling the sales department – I did not look forward to running my questions by a sales person, presuming that I would be pressured to purchase the camera immediately.
Pros: For the past 6 months I have searched to replace my point and shoot and DSLR, the former not having sufficient photo flexibility and the latter too bulky and heavy, to carry on my backpacking trips, which range anywhere from a couple of days to a week+. I finally decided that the Sony a6000 fits ...
Cons: The only design I have an argument with is the placement of the lens release button. It sits at the 8:00 position making it a bit difficult to locate and press due to the nearness of the hand-grip. A better position would be opposite, say at the 2:00 position; in fact, any position but 6:00 throu...
Summary: Not everything in the picture comes with the kit, like the tripod and the car charger, but everything that is listed as included was all there. The manual that came in the box was only useful to explain all the buttons and ports, but the free PDF downloadable manual made up for that.
Excerpt: Great camera! Has a modern rangefinder look to it. I have quite a few nikon lens from the old days and with an adapter work great, (manual focus only) . For the money it can't be beat and the kit lens is not bad at all. Only con to me is the battery life.
Summary: I was not even looking at buying one of the mirrorless cameras because I really didn't even know they existed. I had done about 2 weeks worth of research reading review after review, spec sheet after spec sheet and had narrowed my choices down to the Canon Rebel T5i and the Nikon D5300, as those...
