Sony Final Thoughts

"Fast shipping!"

Low light seems to be better than the GH4 or G7. Fast or continuous autofocus. The Sony phase and contrast system has it beat. The longer you have it, the more small issues you find. The flash feels lighter than my Andoer flash for my other camera.

Sony Final Thoughts

"For me, a non-issue."

The availability of the control dials makes a huge difference. I can't overstate how nice it is to have a one camera solution. Overall, I am very satisfied and glad I made the switch. And, the EVF stayed in my bag nearly the entire trip. With its kit lens, there are several focusing aids.

"I am not disappointed."

This is very comfortable, especially during long shoots. And I wish the Sony lenses were a bit cheaper. Great battery life, about 300 shots in cold weather. So, when Sony ILCE6000L/B came, I purchased it immediately. Wonderful color, clarity and detail.

  • Sony Alpha a6000 24.3MP Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50 mm Lens (Black) and Two 64GB SD Card Bundle (8 Items)

  • 24.3MP EXMOR APS HD CMOS SENSOR: Creating high-quality images becomes easier with Sony’s 24.3MP APS-C image sensor. The sensor offers high-sensitivity in dimly-lit environments and strikingly attractive foreground and background defocusing. The increased light collecting efficiency of a gapless on-chip lens structure allows for ultimate image quality and light sensitivity, extremely low noise throughout a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25600, and superb corner-to-corner image quality
  • BIONZ X IMAGE PROCESSOR: The BIONZ X image processing engine is amazingly fast, and is able to accurately capture textures, reduce blurry details, and even suppresses visual noise in specific areas to ensure sharp images. All these advantages apply equally to still images or video. The resulting images are remarkably realistic with especially rich tonal gradations and a natural three-dimensional appearance
  • FAST HYBRID AF SYSTEM: In addition to 25 high-speed, high-precision contrast-detection AF (Fast Intelligent AF) points, the improved Fast Hybrid AF system features 179 extremely accurate phase-detection AF points that cover nearly the entire image area.
