Good street camera

editorsteve, B&H Photo
1 week ago
  • Excerpt: There have been a lot of improvements to this line since the 5000 came out -- and thus this model was available at an attractive price -- about the same as the lens alone would have cost. My wife will use it as a street camera, and photographing exhibits for blogging at the college where she works part time. We'll also use it as a studio camera (mainly food photography), adapting a bunch of legacy Minolta lenses to it.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good E-mount Lenses Avail, Great Resolution, Lcd Tiltswaist-lvl Shoot, Small / Compact
  • Cons: E-mount Lenses Expensive, Grainy Screen, No Accessory Shoe, No Viewfinder

  • Excerpt: We ordered this camera right before christmas as we were leaving for a trip to Kenya on the 27th. We wanted a good camera for the safari & this camera turned out to be great. Clean pics & good zoom. BH also had the best price across the market, they were very helpful in helping us pick the right camera for our budget, and delivery service was prompt & at no cost to us. My wife & i could not have been happier.

Good entry level product for DSLR video

Kantha Productions, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I bought this mainly to get started in DSLR videography, and also to do some occasional photography. I do documentary film, so a small camera can be very useful. The price for this was hard to beat (<$ on sale). There is a wide array of Sony E-mount lenses out there, including cinema lenses, and with a converter you can use other mounts as well. When I trade up to an a7000 it's good to know that I can use the same lenses.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Small / Compact
  • Cons: No Viewfinder

&quot;The ultimate selfie stick&quot;

Niegel, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I was never in the market for a camera as I believe phone cameras are convenient and at par with the standard point and shoot camera. I have my own Canon DSLR which I have not used for about 1 year now. This was the case until I visited the Sony Store in Palo Alto, CA. I saw how this camera was compact but delivers DSLR quality photo. Instantly send captured photos to your phone. Flip the LCD for your ultimate selfies.
  • Pros: Control Camera On Phone, Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Micro Usb Charger, Nfc Connectivity, Rechargable battery, Small / Compact, Stream Photos To Tv, Touch Focus On Phone, Wireless Connectivity
  • Cons: Cannot Stream Movies Totv, No Bluetooth Connection, No Touchscreen, Wifi Connect Issues
