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

A decent camera for the price. You get access to Sony's impressive e-mount lens ecosystem and an easy to use interface. However, you might as well save a little more and buy an a5100 or an a6000 depending on your needs. The a5100 is an incredible little vlogging camera and the a6000 is a much better stills camera at only a slightly higher price point. If you get a good deal on this camera, then by all means go ahead and pick one up. But if you're planning on paying close to current retail pricing, skip this one and buy the a5100 or a6000.

BEST CAMERA EVER! I love how lightweight it is and how the lenses can be switched. The flip over selfie screen is what sold me. This camera is perfect for blogs and everyday use!

Really great camera with super fast focus. Clear pictures and can be used in the dark. I enjoy using this camera. Good for doing quick shots. Perfect compact size and all the image quality of the bigger brother A6000.The camera has many customizable features or you can just use the auto modes .

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?
