Ease of Use:


  • Super quality camera and lenses.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Chasbones - October 21, 2017

    The Alpha 6000 is a great quality camera and lenses (2) that are easy of a relative novice to use, but also has a real variety of settings including capacity to set f stop, shutter speed and many other options for great effects and pinpointing subjects and scenes in a variety of ways. My only complaint so far is that the autofocus is slow and somewhat inaccurate in low light. I haven't found a "fix" or workaround to the problem, but it seems to be intermittent, and can be partially overcome through patience and waiting for the image to focus. Also the battery life is relatively short, so advise packing a second battery when you go on a shoot..

  • Sony A6000
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Suemanda - March 7, 2021

    I just parted ways with my Canon T2i which was my main camera for over 10 years. A friend of mine who used to own a camera store for years recommended the Sony Alpha a6000. I was skeptical of how well he said the camera performs. Well he was right. The camera is so light and pretty easy to use once you spend a little time with it. The images are gorgeous, the black and white mode is outstanding. The video is close to professional quality. The low light sensors are outstanding. You do not really even need a flash. I have shot many bands, weddings and other events and this is the camera to own. You do need to study the manual a bit. . Just great

  • Simply Fantastic Photos!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by jacksonrd - June 22, 2017

    This mirror-less camera allows amateur and pro alike to obtain great photos in a variety of light challenges. From professional quality, studio shots, even multi-shot tripod study selfies or outdoor group shots capturing 5 at a time by using the flash to create a half second delay between each photo, and action photography to mist on the predawn waters of a lake, it can bring out the best of your composition. The pistol-shot fast auto-focus and ISO range create stunning pictures in extremely challenging settings, while the 25-55 and 50-200 high-quality lenses cover most of what the avid photographer on a budget, or traveling light will ever need
