M.C., Amazon
15 February 2015
  • Summary: Not what I expected but I'll keep it in spite of the comments below: The bag is not suitable to carry all essential equipment. No camera case or lens case, you need to purchase them separately. When you spend this kind of money you would expect those little things. Receiving the camera wrapped in a piece of plastic was the most disappointing experience.

Jury Still Out...

R-6, Amazon
24 December 2014
  • Summary: Printed all 458 pages of the users manual. It is completely useless. Never seen instructions so lacking. Sony dropped the ball on this one. The camera had some issues from the start: it wouldn't stay zoomed in while taking a picture. Zero help in the user manual. Pulled memory card and battery out and allowed it to sit long enough for any residual power to end. Re-assembled and it appears to be working.

Not sure if its better than my NEX 5

daniel colella, Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: I have an NEX 5 as well - I thought this would be a big improvement. Its harder to use without the touch screen. And at night time - auto mode it really is not good. It reduces the shutter time to try and let more light it so all your night shots look blurry unless you are in manual mode and adjust them yourself. I know most people will be doing manual adjustments.

Love the camera --- the s/w not so much

Rogue Photo Dude, B&H Photo
23 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I love the size and the quality photos of this camera. Along these lines it was exactly what I was looking for. I would like to see a better lens selection, which seems to be one of the issues with Sony. The other issue is the software apps which are tedious and sometimes difficult to set up.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Small / Compact

The camera + lenses are great. The other stuff is

Penn Nome, Amazon
8 October 2014
  • Summary: Just want to echo what some of the other reviewers have stated. The camera + lenses are great. The other stuff is... so-so. Terrible: The flash stopped working (after only using it once to make sure it wasn't DOA). The tripod is a toy. I think I'll give it to my daughters to play with their American Girl dolls. (It's their size) The various filters/adapters were not good. Image quality with them was... nothing to write home about.

a6000 vs RX100 Comparison - Bigger Isn't Better

Thomas D. Kehoe, Amazon
24 September 2014
  • Summary: I've had a Sony RX100 for 2.5 years (first generation). I bought an a6000 a month ago. The picture quality is almost identical, when using the kit lens (16-50mm) on the a6000. The a6000 has a better sensor but the RX100 has a better lens. If you don't have the budget for prime lenses the a6000 won't take better pictures than a good point-and-shoot. To put this another way, cameras get better and smaller and cheaper every year. Lenses don't.

I actually did not like the images being produced

k, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: I actually did not like the images being produced. I had purchased this because I didn't want the size of a dSLR but wanted better quality images than a travel zoom. I thought this would be the nice medium. It is a beautiful camera and has a modern style with a retro look. The images really weren't much better than those I have gotten from my old Olympus XZ-1.
