Leaves much to be desired

Yaz, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I have had this camera for a little over a month (switched from nikon d5100). I wanted to use it for a little while so i can assess it objectively. i want to list all it's wonderful features, but i am stuck on Four huge issues that really overshadow positives. 1. it can't focus to save it's life in areas with low lighting. it takes such awful pixelated images, that you feel like you have been thrown back to 1999. So you think, ok low lighting, lets pull out the flash.
  • Cons: Limited Zoom, Poor Image Quality, Poor in Low Light

instructions & manual worthless

Captain Video, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: The camera appears to be a good camera but the manual is next to worthless. It shouldn't even be called an instruction manual, it's just a small pamphlet that tells you the name of the buttons on the camera but very little about what they do, nothing about how to format the memory card.
  • Pros: Small / Compact
  • Cons: Complicated Controls

The camera is really good and meets the expectation

astha, Amazon
16 November 2014
  • Summary: Fully agree with the previous review . The camera is really good and meets the expectation. I paid the extra $50 for flash, lenses, filters and tripod. But all the non-sony items in the bundle are not worth even an extra dollar. The flash does not work at all. The tripod is poorly built. The lenses are cheap. I don't think I would be using any of the flimsy items bundled with the camera.

If you don't want to be bit by the Pixy... stay well clear of their B*S* and leave their merchandise alone!

anitacamera, Amazon
12 November 2014
  • Summary: Bought this bundle about five weeks ago. If you are thinking about purchasing this, I would suggest you read this and consider carefully whether you really do want to give your hard earned cash to people like these - it could save you tons of disappointment. First of all, the package arrived without tripod. It was way too small for a tripod to fit it, too, so already I am wondering... But after contacting Pixibytes we were told a tripod was on its way. So far, so good.

2 handed operation is a deal breaker

S R, Amazon
15 October 2014
  • Summary: I had 2 issues with the a6000 which led me to return it and not request a replacement. The first was I simply got a bad unit. On powering on the camera the lens made repeated clicking noises and the display showed the message "Cannot recognize lens. Attach it properly". I'm not sure how something like this gets through quality control but it did. The second issue is the power zoom lens controls.

Flash placement/lens length create shadows on photos

Big Ron, Amazon
7 October 2014
  • Summary: The placement/low height of the pop-up flash combined with the length of the 18-105mm Sony fixed length internal zoom lens creates a big round shadow on the lower left corner of photos even when partially zoomed in.
