I started blogging and needed a camera to really capture everything gorgeous that I saw in my beauty products. I debated on getting the a5100 and even the a6000 but there's wasn't a big difference in the quality of still pictures or use of the video for blogging. My pictures are gorgeous in daylight and even at night. It charges quickly and easily, no need to take the battery out. I like the ability to switch lenses which I plan on buying another very soon. The best thing is that I can easily transfer pictures and videos to my laptop and iPhone with the built in wifi. I definitely recommend this camera completely. Sony knows what they are doing here.

I absolutely love my camera. I am a makeup artist/ beauty blogger and I bought this camera for taking pics of my work and filming. I was initially attracted to the affordability of this camera but I'm so glad to have ended up with an awesome camera that takes high quality pictures. This camera is wifi enabled and I have the ability to upload directly from my camera which is a huge plus for me . The battery life is great and it charges quickly . This is a great camera for the price and I recommend it to beginners or anyone looking for quality and affordability. My one and only drawback is that the camera is a bit heavy in my opinion.

Wondeful mirrorless camera. Perfect for travel photos. Smaller that most dslr cameras but gives just as great photos. I love the app which can be used to send photos right from camera to phone

This is my favorite camera by far! It takes amazing photos and perfect 1080p videos for my YouTube channel. At first I wasn't sure but the more you learn it and figure it out you can take beautiful photos. I use it for my makeup looks. For the price it is defiantly worth it for all the stuff you can do and the quality! Really nice made.

I got this camera for Christmas and I LOVE IT!! This is my first camera that I have actually really wanted and wanted to learn more about. It takes such good quality pictures. I currently have the lenses that the camera comes with on it, but I am interested in getting the bigger/longer lenses. I love how lightweight this camera is and it is not bulky. I love how I can just put it in my bag and whip it out whenever I want to capture a good memory. Would HIGHLY recommend this camera.

This was my first fancy camera. I wanted a camera that is able to take photos in a dimmed light as my friends and I love to go out for dinners and want to capture our moments together. A point and shoot camera usually not able to do that without using the harsh flash feature. I'm able to take great photos with this.

This is an amazing mirrorless camera at a great price. I love the fact that the screen flips to the front. It is also wifi enabled so you can send photos to your phone with no hassle. I just wish it had a hot shoe for an external flash

I'm looking for a good camera to take makeup product pics of for Instagram but my apartment has the worst lighting possible so I need a high quality camera. Would this work or should I look for a different camera?
