a6000 body only is $400 on amazon (black currently sold out) and with kit lens for $550: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I8BICCG/ref=twister_B00Q7QEPY8?_encoding=UTF8&th=1

I bought a Sony a6000 about a year ago and really love it. It's a really capable camera, and quite a bit smaller than your average DSLR. The lens ecosystem isn't as robust (especially on the low end) as Canon or Nikon, but you can fill gaps with adapted legacy lenses for not a lot of money. I have used an old manual focus 100mm Canon FD-mount lens for macro and it works pretty well on the a6000 with focus peaking and magnification. The a6000 is mirrorless so there is less noise than a DSLR, (you just hear the shutter not the mirror and shutter) but it doesn't have silent shooting mode like some of the nicer sonys. It sounds like if you can swing it one of the A7 series of cameras might work well, as they provide better low light performance and some have silent shooting, but I'm not sure which ones.

u/eirtep · 3 pointsr/barstoolsports

what's your budget?

I think mirrorless micro 4/3rds cameras from Panasonic or Olympus are pretty great casual cameras cause they're great quality cameras packed into a small and compact body/lens system. The pansonic G7 comes to mind, but they have lower budget/entry models as well. There are other options tho - I'd check out these 3 decent starter cameras:

Panasonic m43 mirrorless:

Pansonic g7

Sony APS-C mirrorless:

Sony A6000


Canon t7i

I think a million people may have had t#i as their first budget camera. it's good but at this point that series is kinda shit for the price point imo. Canon's prosumer/pro cameras are still great for photo but Sony and Panasonic imo crush them in budget/entry level stuff and are better at any price point for combined photo+video use.

u/MrMeursault · 3 pointsr/photography

I've been lusting over the A7s, it is the low light king. Not at all in your budget though. The D3200 probably isn't the best as it has troubles focusing in low light. The kit lens is a definite no no as it doesn't do well in low light. If you go DSLR go at least d5200 for $500 paired with the 35mm f/1.8 lens for $200. A refurbished d5300 can be found for $600 and would also be a great choice paired with that 35mm.

The Sony a6000 ($450 for body $600 for kit) is making a lot of noise in the mirrorless format at that pricepoint and can be paired with the 35mm f/1.8 at $400 for a total of $850, just above your budget.

u/AsleepConstruction · 3 pointsr/Cameras

Sony A6000 + the 18-105 F4 for general photography, this should be a good start and will get her a quality lens that will get her plenty of reach. This should be right around $1100ish

down the road she can add these options:

add the 35 f1.8 for great portrait photos with better background separation. Alternatively you can start her with this lens first, being smaller and lighter means she will be more likely carry it around with her.

add the 16 2.8 for hiking thanks to the compact size and theme parks, or just anywhere she needs it in a more compact size.

I haven't personally ever bought a camera used but I know there are a lot of good places to get a solid deal on an a6000 as it has been out for a while and one of the more popular mirrorless cameras. Sounds like you have a good eye on eBay.

I would check out /r/photomarket as you can get an a6000 for $300-400 depending on amount of shutter count, overall condition, and if it comes with the kit lens. You also might search your local Craigslist and Facebook marketplace for an a6000, might not have any luck but it is worth a shot. You also might check Adorama or B&H as they occasionally have them as well. Your best bet would probably be /r/photomarket thought.

If you want new Amazon usually has it on sale every few months around $400 for the body only. You can check the camelcamelcamel here. If you want the kit lens with it they usually go for $500, again you can check here regarding the historic prices on Amazon. Usually if it goes on sale through Amazon it will be on sale on other sites like Adorama, B&H, etc. If you can hold off I would personally go for a new one via Amazon the next time it goes down to $400.

u/HybridCamRev · 2 pointsr/videography

That's a tough one. If budget permits, you might want to consider stepping up to an [$897.99 GH3] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009B0WREM/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B009B0WREM&linkCode=as2&tag=battleforthew-20), which has live HDMI out.

Like the A6000, this camera is limited to 1080/60p but, unlike the A6000, it has a headphone jack and a mic jack plus manual audio level control for higher quality sound.

And it can produce image quality like this:

It's a great still camera too: https://www.flickr.com/groups/gh3/pool/

To be fair, the A6000 is probably a better still camera - but the G and GH cameras are a much better all-around choice for both video and stills.

That said, if you can't stretch your budget that far, the [$398 body-only A6000] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I8BICCG/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00I8BICCG&linkCode=as2&tag=battleforthew-20) plus an external HDMI recording solution with 3.5mm line audio inputs you can use with amplified external mics (e.g., the [$295 Atomos Ninja 2] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IN8I3XM/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00IN8I3XM&linkCode=as2&tag=battleforthew-20)) might be the best solution for you.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful - hope you have a great New Year!

u/GeneralRevis · 2 pointsr/photography

I am just getting into photography ( I am also interested in video, but I feel like I will mostly be taking photos) , and am looking to get my first camera. Right now I'm torn between the Sony a6000 or the Panasonic G7, both are priced very well right now.

Also, is there any lens that you recommend for the camera you suggest? Will mostly be shooting nature shots.

I just had a buddy over helping me compare some mirrorless cameras. Check out the Sony a6000 on Amazon. Kit options, lens options, lots of features and easy to pack around if you don't want to lug around a DSLR. I'm no expert but it seems very capable to me.

u/CrunchAddict · 2 pointsr/photography

I recently bought the Sony a6000 with a 16-55mm and a 55-210mm lens and I also have a tripod and a polarizer filter. What other accessories should I invest in if I want to experiment with landscape photography? What e mount lenses do you recommend?
Thanks for the help.

This one was taken with a Sony a6000 with a Sony E 30mm Macro.

I got mine for $400 from Amazon brand new earlier this year, so i know they drop at least that low periodically.

Edit: Here is a link to the Amazon price history, may provide some nice info on when you could expect it to happen again: https://camelcamelcamel.com/Sony-Alpha-Mirrorless-Digital-Camera/product/B00I8BICCG?context=search

u/GrowDoctorGuides · 1 pointr/microgrowery

I have a sony a6000 with 50mm prime lens. You could get the macro version but this makes for a killer all-around lens with beautiful bokeh. I used 26mm extension rings to get it to focus at close range

Lighting is very important too. The best shots are not taken directly under your grow light

u/mrgnw · 1 pointr/SonyAlpha

I got a body from Amazon warehouse deals for $385 a few weeks ago. It said the screen was scratched but I didn't notice any issues. (Looks like prices went up a little though).

Lenses: I just bought an adapter for some old manual focus Canon FD lenses I had laying around. The adapter was $15 and the 3 lenses probably cost me $100ish on eBay.

So I just bought an SD card, 2 batteries, and a dual charger for another ~$50.

I do plan on getting newer lenses later, but so far I'm enjoying the manual set up. A lot of bang for your buck.

Focus peaking can make it easier to focus manually. It highlights what's in focus like this.

This was an "ugly" day in the south eastern corner of Fakarava Atoll in French Polynesia. After a frustrating day dealing with leaks all over the boat, this was the beautiful sunset we were gifted after it passed through!

I think the A6000 has some limitations, but if you're doing mostly still photography, it's a great way to get into mirrorless if you can get it at a deal. Some of the limitations of the A6000 are with video - it doesn't do 4K video, and even non-4k, it can overheat when you record videos for a long time. Battery life may not be so great compared to the newer Sony cameras, but you can get spare/3rd party batteries for like $10.

There's a nice video in r/a6000 that discusses if it's still relevant in 2019 - https://www.reddit.com/r/a6000/comments/ad1xjn/sony_a6000_is_it_worth_buying_in_2019/


I would recommend getting it from Amazon - they've had it on sale a couple of times over the past year. I got mine for about $335 (new with 16-50 kit lens) during Black Friday. They also have 20% off amazon warehouse items, I think once or twice a year. I'm not sure I'd still recommend it at it's retail price of $650.


Right now, Amazon warehouse has a used body only (like new condition) for $353 - https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00I8BICCG/ref=olp_twister_child?ie=UTF8&mv_color_name=0&mv_configuration=0&mv_style_name=0


I'd wait for to see if the product goes on sale during prime day sale on July 15/16. Right after that on the 17th, Sony is rumored to announce a new body - https://www.sonyalpharumors.com/sr5-this-is-it-folks-sony-will-have-a-big-announcement-on-july-17/


The kit lens (16-50mm) is decent all-round lens and I'd use it if it's included in the deal, but I wouldn't buy it or recommend it separately. I think this lens goes for less than $100 on r/photomarket.


The kit zoom lens (55-210mm) is actually a pretty good/usable zoom lens at a good price point. I'd buy this separately if its not included - I got this it on massdrop for about $200 (new).


You can also use other non-sony/non e-mount lenses with an adapter. For example, you can use a sigma MC-11 adapter ($130-$150 on sale) to mount canon lenses. It's not as great as on a native canon body - the autofocus may hunt, but it allows you to try use/try other options.


I tried some Sigma E-mount lenses for low-light photography, and at f/1.4, they're fantastic. These lenses are : Sigma 16mm 1.4 ($400) ; Sigma 30mm 1.4 ($300) ; Sigma 56mm 1.4 ($430). Sigma also has f/2.8 primes that are much cheaper as well.


Also, have a look at /r/photomarket as well, they have some good deals on used lenses, but I find amazon much easier to deal with if there's any issues with the body/lens - you get 30 days to return the product if any issues, even with amazon warehouse.

To complement DatAperture's answer the other option in the mirrorless market is Sony. The tradeoff is probably a bit better quality (the same sensors as in APS-C DSLRs) versus larger size and less lens selection.

For your budget you could get a very nice body:

  • A6000 648$ (24MP, latest model, supposedly very fast next-generation autofocus)

    Or a cheaper kit:

  • NEX 3 with 16-50 lens $398 (16MP older model)

    and then complement it with some lenses:

  • 16/2.8 $248
  • 20/2.8 $348
  • 35/1.8 $448
  • 50/1.8 $298

    The Sigma ones are also available in Nex mount:

  • 19/2.8 $199
  • 30/2.8 $199
  • 60/2.8 $239

    For my kind of shooting, on a backpacking trip of Europe I'd go for A6000+19/2.8+50/1.8. Fits in your budget. Is light and small. Gets you a wide angle for scenery and a 50 for everything else, including low light. If you prefer zooms you can get the A6000 with the 16-50 kit lens plus a 55-210.

u/voiceofid · 1 pointr/Cameras

you can buy an a6000 in the US right now at $600 with lenses or $400 without


probably a better route

u/crimsonskunk · 1 pointr/SonyAlpha

Without saying anything about lens quality here are some price comparisons.

[Nikon D3300 w/ kit] (http://www.amazon.com/Nikon-Digital-Focus-S-18-55mm-3-5-5-6G/dp/B00HQ4W1QE) $447, [35mm 1.8] (http://www.amazon.com/Nikon-AF-S-NIKKOR-Focus-Cameras/dp/B001S2PPT0) $177, [50mm 1.8] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004Y1AYAC/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=cpc02-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B004Y1AYAC) $197


Sony A6000 w/ kit $650, 35mm 1.8 $450, 50mm 1.8 $250

I'm not trying to say one is better than the other, just making a comparison. On the Sony you get OSS with the lenses which drives the price up. If you are trying to save money though, OSS might not be that important.
