I know, I've been threatening to do this for some time as I've mentioned in a couple of posts. I've updated my Sony Nex-5N and Nex-7 cameras to an A6000.
I never seem to sell any cameras and I've still got those two models. So, what model did I buy? It's actually an older model, the A6000. I just couldn't justify an A6300/A6500. Just too expensive for what I do with them.
However, I think it's still a good step for me, especially as I can wanted to test the 18-105 F4 G lens on a camera that will show any flaws with the lens. Saying that the A6000 is old, well...in camera terms it is but I think it still produces some great images. There's not a bad camera out on the market right now, and there hasn't been one for a number of years. Whatever you chose today, it will produce the goods.
So what does this camera look like? I'm sure we all know but....
The camera was introduced on February 12th, 2014 believe it or not, which makes it nearly 4 years old. It still sports a 24MP sensor which is pretty perfect for me. The A6300 and the A6500 also sport a 24MP sensor but I believe the AF and 4K footage have been implemented in the newer cameras. That's not what I am looking for in a camera like this (I don't do video and I'm also not a BIF or sports photographer). After v3.20 firmware I can even have phase-detect AF with G lenses. It also brought faster start-up time and better image quality for a few lenses.
I bought this second hand of course and the price was quite low. It's in pretty much pristine condition and shutter count is also low. I must say it actually looks brand new.
What I'm not going to be doing in this post is show any images from it. I need to get used to the camera and lens before I'll be ready to post some half decent images.
