The Sony A5100 is perhaps one of the best deals in cameras right now in terms of bang for the buck. Its not the perfect camera, but what you get in terms of image quality for both still photos and videos is what makes it incredible. Especially at this price point.

    I have a cannon t3 that i use for most of my projects that is getting outdated for what i want to use it for. I am looking for a simpler camera with similar quality and slimmer for recreational use before upgrading my dslr (if that makes sense). Something for going to amusement parks, concerts, vacations, and video blogging. My ideal price point is around $500 but can flex. My main issue with my dslr that keeps me from taking it on personal uses is its size, the screen doesn't flip so i can't see if things are in frame as well when personally recording or trying to get a decent picture of myself.(because i don't have photography friend that live near me. Any advice or recommendations?

    Thank you for the great and informative review! I purchased this camera and absolutely love it. I've started a YouTube channel using the flip up screen and would recommend it to anyone over the a6000 looking to do the same. Plus it's more pocketable. Great, great, great camera and review.

    This camera is not for video shooting period. No mic input. And overheats after 10 plus minutes.

    What camera are you using to make this video because I like the color depth and smoothness? Also what type of lens do you use with it to give it this quality?

  9. Marlon Orellana

    LOL! 24 fps is cinematic and 60 fps looks like cheap TV?… Subjective comment is subjective…..
