Excellent value for money

  • Take multiple photos in no time
  • Quality photos
  • Operation could be a little easier

Bought this camera as a replacement for an old Olympus Pen E-PL1, mainly to have some more megapixels. So far very satisfied with it. Even the photos shot through an airplane window look impressive. Nice all-round camera that is easy to carry with many options for both beginners and advanced users.

Beautiful camera (what a beast)

  • compact
  • great camera
  • no charger

I owned a compact camera - actually I've already tried several. Small and versatile so they can take them into the mountains. After every holiday I was annoyed again by the poor quality of the photos. That had to change. After a lot of research on the internet, reading reviews and consulting experienced colleagues, my choice came up - the Sony A6000 that was yet to be released at that time. I've had this camera for a few weeks now and it lives up to its expectations. What a beast! Easy to operate, the standard button for normal work and the (easy to operate) positions for the 'special cases'. The photos look really perfect. The problems with contrast (as often occurs in the mountains) become a lot less with the (auto detect) HDR mode. Autofocus functions as promised and it is also nice that a timelapse app can be downloaded for free from the Android Store. The built-in viewfinder is (unexpectedly) a big plus - especially in situations where the display is difficult to read. This is a camera that I really enjoy. After purchasing I immediately bought a very fast memory card that can keep up with the speed of this camera. I also found a small bag with which the camera can be worn on the belt. The points for improvement? Personally, I find it a lack that there is no charger (in the camera, this takes a long time and is not really useful). The manual can be called brief and could be a bit more extensive if you want to use all the possibilities of this camera. The lens also feels a bit sloppy. NFC is on it, but that's about it. The only thing NFC does is set up a WiFi connection - otherwise all communication runs via WiFi - that could have been a bit better. And indeed GPS is missing on this device. Personally, I don't think this is a loss - my previous camera had built-in GPS and I have never used it - in practice I always have a (walking) GPS device with me with which the photos can easily be synchronized.

wonderful for video

I make nightclub videos myself. Many EDM parties and also events etc. For me it is therefore important that the camera has a good ISO performance. I wouldn't say you could compare this to a full frame ISO performance, but it's enough for me. With the f3.5 it is already enough for a pub or to record bands. I would even say that an f4 is enough. That's why I'm going to take the PZ 18-105 with this camera. It's the perfect lens for docu style videos with a constant aperture of f4. Furthermore, the camera has high versatility and very good usability. Everything is easy to find and it also has as many options as you can think of. Now you can do an update and you will be able to record XAVC-S. This means you have a lot more infarm per second of recording. This means that you can have more color detail in the image, for example, making color correction easier and better. Also, XAVC-S can withstand more artifacts in the image. Just think of walking in the forest and there are many trees with many small leaves. You would lose the detail with AVCHD. The kit lens itself is a top performer. I immediately wanted to buy an 18-105 with my α6000. But the kit lens is so small and convenient to carry everywhere. It makes the A6000 feel like a point and shoot king. It's also sharp enough for most things. If you wanted a sharper lens you should get a prime lens like the 35mm f1.8. If you're worried that the 6000 doesn't have a mic input, I'd say that Sony has a very good mic that can go on the smart hotshoe. A bit of a shame if you have a red mic or something or use a rig where something else has to be on the hotshoe. If you want much better audio you can always buy a Zoom H4n or something and your problem is solved. The viewfinder is fine. I personally like it better than an optical viewfinder on all DSLR cameras. I'd rather look at how the image will come out than what I can already see with my eyes. It is also very useful in the dark. With the optical viewfinder I always had to struggle to see something. And now no more. The focus on this camera is incredibly fast and accurate. When I did videos with my DSLR I would never have filmed with a Continuos autofocus setting. But with my α6000 I hardly ever go out AF-C. It can focus even better than me. And if you want to shoot moving subjects, it can handle it all. And now the things I don't like. Maybe it's my model or something but my a6000 gets too hot after 15min of constant 1080p 50p XAVC-S recording. He then has to rest for about 5 minutes, but then it is good to record another 15 minutes. So if you want to record for longer, you can do AVCHD in 25p. I've had no problems with that. The camera is taking way too long to start up. Before you know it, the moment will be over and you'll have lost your photo. The camera also does not feel very good in the hands. It's too small for my hands. But on the other hand, very light, so I would take it with me sooner than my nikon DSLR. The last downside is the battery runs out very quickly. The % counts down almost like a second counter. Fortunately, I have always been able to record and photograph everything with 1 battery. Coolblue gave me an extra free battery and I also bought one myself, so I now have 3 batteries. So I'm sure I could record 2 hours of 1080p 50p XAVC-S with it. And hundreds of photos, even with flash. In conclusion I would say that if you are looking for this camera for professional photos, it is definitely recommended, it does almost everything a Full frame would do and focuses better anyway. If you're looking for the camera for videos like me, there are other options around this model. I wouldn't trade mine because it's good enough for what I do. But if you would like to make long recordings or need a mic input and don't want to spend extra money on a Sony microphone, look at the α7 or the VG30 or even the Samsung NX500 (4K, better ISO performance, codec h.265).

Nice camera for a good price

  • Solid quality
  • Nice finish
  • No touchscreen

After our old Sony DSLR camera broke down, we made the switch to this mirrorless camera from Sony. The camera was well packed in the box along with a battery, carrying strap and a micro USB charger. Unfortunately, the battery that was included was not charged. Charging with the supplied charger is very disappointing. Charging the camera takes about 5 hours. Fortunately, you can speed up this process by using a phone charger (charging time is about 2 hours). After the camera was charged, we went to take pictures in Amsterdam. The photos that this camera takes with the supplied kit lens are beautiful. The focus is very fast. Brief summary: What makes this camera really great is that you can transfer all photos wirelessly. Sony has a nice application for IOS and for Android. Transferring to Android went very smoothly for us. Unfortunately, IOS did not automatically connect to the WIFI network of the camera. In short, a very nice camera for the novice and for the advanced photographer. Below is a more extensive review of the camera: camera body The body of the camera looks sleek and modern. The camera has a nice, large screen. You can tilt this screen to shoot the perfect picture. With the predecessor (Sony A5000) you can fold the screen completely (selfie mode). Unfortunately, this is not possible with this camera. This camera is therefore not suitable for vloggers. On the side you will find the following connections: Micro USB and mini HDMI. The camera can be charged with any Micro USB charger. This is ideal if you are on the road a lot. You don't have to bring a special charger for the camera. The camera's menu has many options. Out-of-the-box, these are already well set up for the novice photographer. If you are a little more advanced, you can easily find your way between all the settings. The camera comes with a nice application for IOS and for Android. With this application you can very easily transfer the photos on-the-go to your phone and tablet. Pairing the camera with the application is very easy. You connect to the network of the camera, and the application finds the camera automatically. What is very unfortunate is that this function is hidden a little deeper in the camera. To access this function you have to search for connection in the settings and from there you can send the photos. Fortunately, if you've gone through this process a few times, it's not that bad. On the sides are rings for the carrying strap. Very useful for when the band is being used. Don't want to use it? Then the rings hang loose. When you film, they make an annoying sound because they tap against the body every time. kit lens The supplied kit lens is very compact and takes beautiful, sharp photos. This lens is a nice all-round lens for the beginner. The only downside of the lens is the zoom option. You just can't zoom in very far with it. If you switch from another camera and have a lot of lenses, see if they also have an E-Mount. If not, there are plenty of adapters to be found. With this you can still use all your lenses on the camera. So far my review. Hopefully this helps when choosing a camera.

Simple, but quality of an SLR camera

  • No longer fits in a jacket pocket, but with the base lens still quite compact
  • Possibility to set exposure, sharpness, focus, zoom, ... completely yourself and also still a 'smart auto' function
  • The carrying strap of the camera is a bit too long for me

I've always had a simple compact camera, but it failed last summer. Because I take pictures very often, I had already decided that my next device could offer a little more. I'm a layman, so I didn't immediately like tinkering with lenses, light measurements, focussing. For me, the Sony A6000 came out on top in the comparisons: a still simple device, very comparable to a compact camera, but with a quality that tends to that of an SLR camera. Of its kind, the Sony A6000 would be one of the better and – nevertheless, in terms of basic equipment – an excellent value for money choice. My experiences after a week of use: - The format takes some getting used to after my compact camera. The Sony A6000 is still not big, but it no longer fits in my pocket. Tip for those who buy a camera bag: don't choose it too small. If you do have to carry around with a bag, it should be more spacious enough for all your (additional) things. I bought a package that included the standard, way too small Sony A6000 case and as a result I swung an extra bag around my shoulder. - As a beginner, I get lost in all the options. Apart from a booklet about the equipment, the camera does not contain much explanation. Fortunately, a user manual can be found on the internet to make sense of all the functions and possibilities. - As long as I have not yet fully mastered the device, there is always the 'smart automatic' function. All extra settings will remain a bit of a Spielerei for me for the time being, fun to experiment with, but I'm still a bit too unfamiliar with them to use them at the ultimate moment. The autofocus function is great and I love the way the camera automatically lifts a subject out of its surroundings (not to mention the ability to manually set the aperture). - The base lens has only a limited optical zoom. I may buy a better zoom lens later, but the cost is a stumbling point. Extra lenses are very expensive for the Sony A6000. - Find out: why the LCD screen sometimes goes black (power save mode) and is difficult to light up again. Very annoying if you just want to capture an image. It might help if I set the monitor finder to 'monitor' (instead of having the device switch automatically between monitor and viewfinder). I rely on my limited knowledge and experience that I am still struggling with this. In the worst case, something is wrong with the device. (Tips always welcome). - An extra tip: I bought an extra lens cap with a pick rope (Caruba Clip Cap lens cap). I'm glad about that, because it's really handy.

SLR camera with a touch of technology, beautiful!

  • Excellent specs
  • Good looks

By using the latest technologies, this system camera has the same functionalities as an SLR camera, only better! Because a digital function supports the standard functionalities, it is possible to adjust various operations during shooting (such as color selection, where everything is made black and white except the items of selected color). The accompanying app for phone and computer makes it easy to transfer and edit photos. Unfortunately, an active WiFi connection is required for this. This is not necessary to control the camera via the phone.

compact class

  • viewfinder
  • connectivity (nfc, wifi)
  • No external battery charger

Quality photo: The 24.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor in combination with the Bionz X image processor ensures excellent image quality. Shooting in raw mode (.rwe, sony format, for which Sony has its own program to convert it to other files such as .tiff) gives me the opportunity to edit the photos myself afterwards. The camera also has the function to save the recordings (and/or) as jpeg (processed by default) on your SD card. Possibilities: The setting options are endless, similar to a dslr. Its operation is very user-friendly. The 16-50 lens that comes with it is good enough as a start-up lens for landscape and portrait photography in particular. For nature photography (zooming in on animals at a distance) you quickly need a larger zoom range. The disadvantage is that this is an additional investment in addition to the costs for the standard kit. The viewfinder is an indispensable addition (not present on the 5000 series, for example). The quality is good, the big advantage is that you can also see and operate the menu. Theoretically, the quality is less than its predecessor, but in use I don't notice this. In addition, the Wifi function, in combination with playmemories, is very useful to directly view the photos on e.g. tablet (tested with sony xperia z2) for instant viewing. This works for both rwe/raw files (which are converted to jpeg, raw) and jpeg files. The NFC function makes this even more attractive, you only have to hold the camera and the tablet briefly together, after which a WiFi connection is automatically established and the transfer starts. Ease of use The operation is intuitive, and I experience it as user-friendly. The fact that the device does not have a touchscreen can be a disadvantage, but the size of the screen does not seem suitable for working conveniently via a touchscreen menu. With intensive use, the battery does not seem to have a long life, but you can keep track of everything by means of the battery indicator. You instinctively want a second battery, but the disadvantage is that you do not get a separate battery charger when you purchase it. The battery is charged via USB – socket connection. So to have a second battery charged on hand is a bit strange if you also have to charge it via the device. Design: The camera is stable in the hand, and its size makes it more manageable than a DSLR. It's certainly not the smallest mirrorless camera on the market, but it fits well in a small camera bag, especially with the 16-50mm power zoom. solidity The camera has a solid-feeling body, despite being made of composite materials. Overall I am very satisfied with the camera. My previous camera was a compact zoom but wanted more options and better quality photos under varying circumstances. Given the fact that this camera has better specifications than most entry-level digital SLR models, but is much more manageable, that was the deciding factor for me. Comparing comparable system cameras, among other things, has led me to the conclusion that this camera still gives the most value for its investment. Now after a few months in my possession I can't help but be satisfied with my purchase

Semi-professional result in a compact and light format.

  • Fast autofocus
  • Light and compact
  • An extra battery is recommended.

Owned for five months. We were looking for a good family camera (read: the small subjects run through the image quickly and at random) and after browsing extensive reviews, we chose this one. The fast autofocus really won me over. To set a focus point yourself, the click path is a bit too cumbersome. A touch screen would have been useful for that. I am not an experienced photographer, this camera more than compensates for my lack of knowledge. For the enthusiast, however, there are plenty of bells and whistles to play with. The results are very good. Since I got this camera, I often get compliments about the quality of the photos and I'm even asked not to forget this camera at home. In a time when everyone literally has a camera at hand, that's special. It is also light and compact, it fits in my wife's handbag, so ideal for us to take me on trips. Even if you let loose a 'burst' on the subject, the photos are unexpectedly good. Definitely recommended.
