  • Great camera for photo and video
    Verified BuyerReviewed by MichaelPepperTechTalk - September 5, 2020

    I’m a content creator and I got this to use as a webcam and for doing product reviews. The 4k 30fps video quality is really good. The kit lenses provide everything you’ll need to get started. The Sony Image Edge software is easy to use. The focus is really fast, so if you’re trying to take photos of your kids or faster moving animals or trees, blowing in the wind, without getting blurry photos, it’s great for that. The flip up screen comes in handy when trying to take videos of yourself and take selfies. The menu system could be better, but after spending about 15 minutes messing with it, you should be able to figure it out. Highly recommended!

  • A small upgrade from the a6100
    Verified BuyerReviewed by os01 - February 3, 2021

    I bought this to replace my aging a6000 primarily because I wanted to have the silent shutter feature which is lacking on the a6000. Performance wise, I don't see much of a difference for photography. For video, I can happily say, you will be able to record more than 10 minutes before the camera shuts down as is the case with the a6000. Sony added touch focus to the a6100 which can be helpful sometimes but they still failed to provide full menu touch functionality which would have made this camera 10 times easier to use. But that is Sony for you, still refusing to make their cameras user friendly in 2021!

  • Went in for Nikon but I got Sony Instead
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Pandaganigans - October 5, 2020

    I am absolutely thrilled with my camera! The quality of picture and ease-of-use makes this camera perfect for a family setting. The fact you can connect to a phone easily is another great feature that allows you to use a remote quickly and easily. I had some different issues with some of the apps but I was able to find one that worked well for me. The quality of picture is breathtaking! And being able to change all of the features like you can with any other SLR make this worthwhile. I would recommend considering buying a wide angle lens with the purchase immediately I would also recommend getting a flash as well. The internal flash is good but an external flash would be better.
