    An excellent camera that falls just barely short of perfection, May 1, 2014
    By

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    Let me start this review with some background of my photography experience. (Short story, I am an amateur, skip to “PROS” section)

    I bought a Nikon D40 and had it for several years before selling it in college and I was short on cash. Ever since then I’ve been relegated to my various cell phone cameras. I always had intentions of buying back into the hobbyist camera space at some point, and with an upcoming trip to Europe this summer, there was no time like the present to make a purchase.

    I had set a budget for myself that basically put my sights on the OM-D E-M10 and the Sony A6000, sans kit lens and spending the money (well worth it, we’ll get to that in a bit) to get a fast prime near the 50mm equivalent range.

    I never got a hold of an E-M10, so I will not compare the two, but will say that the APS-C sensor size of the A6000 was a key point for me. Without stirring the micro four thirds vs. the world debate, for me, sensor size still means something. Reality is that for the hobbyist, honestly, I don’t think you can choose incorrectly.

    The purchase was an A6000 (body only) with the well-reviewed SEL35F18 lens. I am forgoing the kit lens and intend to fill out my lens set (eventually) with the SEL1018 and another mid-range zoom. I cannot emphasize enough how great the SEL35F18 lens is. I am in love with it, and I think that it will really teach me to shoot correctly, rather than lean on the “zoom” crutch. If you have the extra cash, I would highly recommend this kit as a great starting point.

    I am not a professional, I have not taken photography courses, so I will cover the camera from the perspective of a guy looking to take photography to the next level. Let’s dig on in…

    PROS:
    -The A6000 is small. Coming from a rather chunky D40, I was pleasantly surprised by this. With the relatively small lens, a 35mm prime, it feels very well weighted, if just a tad plastic-y. Large lenses could upset the balance of the camera, but you wouldn’t have a 70-200 mounted for walk around use, anyways.

    -Controls…plenty of them. Spend some time while laying it bed to just mess with the settings and feel the camera out. DO NOT let your first experience with the camera be something special, such as a graduation or wedding. There’s a lot of options and flexibility here to make your photos shine, and keeping it in Auto or Superior Auto means you’re missing the point. That said, Sony does a good job of catering to the new photographer as well as those well versed in photography (and everyone in between). The controls allow you to grow and take more and more control as you learn (and less while you’re still figuring it out).

    -Menus: They go hand in hand with the controls I mentioned above, there’s a lot to them, but the layout is simple. Take some time to understand them, and you’ll be A-OK.

    -Viewfinder: You’re not going to mistake it for a traditional mirror box, but it gets the job done and it plenty functional. It’s not grainy or low quality by any means. Being my first OLED viewfinder, I have no comparison points but I’ve come away impressed so far. Though, the sensor that enables it is a bit too sensitive, can’t find a way to adjust that.

    -Focusing: Lightning fast. Allegedly a huge improvement over older compact system cameras, and for that I am grateful. Haven’t done any serious continuous AF shooting quite yet, but its done what it hasn’t skipped a beat.

    -Image quality: Given that I am an amateur, I am by no means a pixel peeper. So I think the IQ is fantastic. I think the JPG engine turns out somewhat dull images by default, but with a little tweaking, that can be easily fixed. We’re getting to the point where most any compact ILC can pump out decent images, and for me the A6000 certainly doesn’t disappoint.

    CONS:
    -I almost wish the grip was slightly bigger. I’ve got bigger hands, so things get tight after awhile. With a larger lens on the camera, I worry that the small grip won’t be sufficient to support the setup, forcing me to a 2-handed shot. The other benefit to the bigger grip would be an improvement in…

    -BATTERY LIFE. Through my use so far, I’d say it’s around ~300-325 shots. That’s not a lot. When I unboxed the camera I was shocked at how small the battery is. A slightly larger grip to fit a bigger battery would be a wise decision. A fine line between keeping the setup compact and improving the shooting experience, but I think Sony has some room to tip toe further towards that line, especially when you move beyond the tiny kit lens.

    -The Screen: To start, it’s a 16:9 screen and the sensor is 3:2. When reviewing images the on-screen image is pretty darn small. The screen…

    Great upgrade to NEX-6, April 22, 2014
    By 
    JeffT

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    Having pre-ordered and purchased this as an upgrade to a NEX-6, here are some initial impressions:

    First off, the biggest improvement by far is the autofocus. They’re not kidding – it is fast. DSLR fast. Even in low light situations that would leave the leave the NEX hopelessly hunting for focus, it can lock on. Focus seems very accurate as well.

    Other enhancements:

    + More ISO Choices: The NEX-6 ISO settings were in 1-stop increments – 100/200/400/800/etc. The A6000 offers 1/3-stop increments: 100/125/160/200/etc. I’m sure this will come in handy. In addition, it offers multi-frame NR as an additional option when selecting auto-ISO (though this option is not available when shooting in RAW/JPG mode)

    + Better menu system: It is now much easier to use, and resembles the menu system of the RX100. I was able to get the camera set to my liking in a fraction of the time that it would have taken with the NEX-6, even today after using it for over a year and nearly 10,000 shots.

    + Better low-light performance: Shooting back-to-back with the NEX-6, the A6000 yields much cleaner JPG output at a given ISO. I haven’t yet had a chance to look at RAW.

    + Burst mode: WOW. Continuous Shooting drive mode now offers three modes: lo/mid/hi. Speed priority is no longer there, I presume because of the much faster image processor and autofocus renders it unnecessary. On “Lo” it feels about the same as the NEX. On “Hi” it is like a chain gun.

    + The viewfinder: Yes, I think it is an upgrade. I could not discern any lower resolution, but it definitely is faster on the refresh and better in low light.

    + Auto-ISO: As was pointed out by a helpful commenter, it IS now possible to change the default range limits that auto-ISO uses. This is a much-needed upgrade, and will make this function usable for me now.

    Cons:

    - As another reviewer pointed out, the (legacy lens) manual-focus assist zoom button has vanished. When using a legacy MF lens, they were a big help. However, the C2 button can be repurposed for that function via the menus, and although it doesn’t work 100% as before, it does the job.

    Overall, I’d give this camera six stars at this point if I could.

    Sony A6000 – A backpacking camera – Update!, May 4, 2014
    By 

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    Major update:

    I made my first long backpacking adventure in the Ansel Adams wilderness with the Sony A6000 camera. Wow, what a beautiful place! 8 days hiking and about 800 photos – well actually 1,700 but many of them are bracketed pictures. Anyway a great test in real world conditions.

    Most importantly I was able to capture great photos! I shifted between manual, aperture, shutter, auto ISO, bracketed exposure and all the other settings seamlessly. I even switched between two lenses while on the trail! A fixed 19mm to the 55-210mm lens (I did not bring the 16-50mm Sony lens since it seems to be too fragile for trail work.) It took a while to learn where the controls are located, but once understood easy to use. I used a cheap IR remote and that worked well too. I brought a tiny tripod and that was handy – no need for the bigger tripod. The way I use it is not a point and shoot camera.

    Ok so it works, but what else? The sensor is not as good for dynamic range as the Canon 5d so getting full dynamic pictures requires a bit more effort. It is much harder to get proper exposure. My solution was to use the bracketed feature – what a great feature and easy to select. It ended up that most of my shots are bracketed which triples the number and size of the files. Big deal – memory is cheap. I pick the exposure I like, then can do an HDR pass if I like. (All photos are in RAW). It works.

    The camera has a panoramic setting for really wide shots. Much easier for getting those big vistas quick and dirty. I sometimes also capture for after the fact stitching, but the panoramic setting works OK – not always successfully – the feature is fussy and fails on occasion (like when there is a waterfall in the scene). But in general it’s OK

    I was worried about dust, but no problem. I changed lenses about 10 times and cleaned the sensor twice. I don’t see any artifacts.

    But then the battery – it eats batteries like crazy!! I went through a full charge in a single day. I carried two batteries and a solar charger. I was OK for the 8 days, but add the weight of the charger to your backpack! (I needed the charger for my iPad mini as well and was the local “power broker” for others on the hike to re-charge their iPhones – I traded charges for chocolate :)

    I am still looking for a better manual for the camera. I still don’t some of Sony’s control names and what it does.

    Still very pleased!

    Original Posting: The usual background: I normally use a Canon 5D Mark III DSLR camera (5D) as a recreational camera – not professional, but I sure like to take good photos. I had upgraded from a Nikon D80 a few years ago and really appreciated the full sensor size and the much better low light on the Canon. I also have a Nikon Coolpix AW100 underwater camera when I need something rugged and really water proof.

    But taking a 4 pound camera on backpack adventures was too much, so I have been looking for a light weight camera that could give me as close to the same capabilities as the Canon 5D – a high standard.

    I have purchased and used a dozen or so of the point-and-shoot cameras. Canon Elf, Powershot, Nikon, Lumix, etc. They are not good enough for any of my serious photos – due to both the lack of viewfinder in bright scenes, the crappy controls for exposure/aperture/ISO shooting, and the compression artifacts on the captured scene. The Nikon Coolpix AW100 doesn’t take great photos, but better than an iPhone. They just don’t do raw. And you need real glass to take good pictures. I will continue to bring my waterproof Nikon camera with me for those really wet experiences, but I wanted something more than a point and shoot and less than a 4 pound professional camera.

    I wanted a camera that gave me a viewfinder – outside the LCD screens of all cameras just doesn’t work (additionally I need glasses to see up close and it was not easy taking outdoor shots and needing to put on my glasses to see the silly screen – or not see the screen in bright sunlight). I wanted light weight, RAW capture, full manual control in addition to shutter priority/aperture priority. I wanted one that could do decent video and focus during the shot while zooming.

    I wanted one that I could recharge via USB (I bring solar power with me for iPad GPS use – I have power to spare).

    I wasn’t sure if interchangeable lenses was important. A good built in would have been OK. Flash? Well OK if it was there – most built in are marginal at best, but in the back country it might be the only thing I had.

    So I settled on the Sony A6000. I went ahead and got two lenses – the starter lenses (16-50mm and a 55-210mm). I also got an extra Sony brand battery (more on this later).

    Canon 5D: 3.75 pounds (70-300mm lens, one extra battery)
    Sony A6000: 1.7 pounds (55-210mm lens, one extra battery) – but I will…
