Sony A6000 – hybrid camera for the travelers
I still believe that DSLRs are the only, right choice for the professinal photography, but I was focused to find something in a small size, which would be useful for “all purposes”. So what that I did have a good camera with lenses, if I rather take my phone for a travel, which is much comfortable option?
So that’s how I started to read the tests of hybrid cameras with the changable lenses (that was an important factor for me).
Sony A6000 convinced me because of:
Price of Sony A6000
Disadvantages of Sony A6000
As every gear, also Sony A6000 has its bad sides, even though they weren’t that problematic for me. What I don’t like about this camera?
– No possibility of turning the camera screen completely. You can move it a bit and use the angle, which is useful while photographic from the top, but not for selfies. Mine Nikon D5000 was in this case a bit better equipped. You can deal with it by using the app on your phone.
– Short time of work on the battery. I was used to the fact that while using my camera, I don’t need to bring the charger with me for some weekend trips. Well, even during 3-weeks trip and intense use, I charged it maybe 2-3 times. Here you can forget about it, because the camera drains the battery like smartphone. Charger is a must!
– Speaking of the battery, the way of charging the camera isn’t my favorite either. Here you connect the charger’s cable directly to your camera with inserted battery. It’s such an uncomfortable solution! So if you own 2 batteries, you can’t charge one of them in the meantime.
– Prices of additional lenses are high.
