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.

I had been searching for the right camera for year, and this one is just perfect. Super lightweight, high quality photos, and an amazing value. The small size makes it perfect for traveling, and the wifi capabilities make it so easy to transfer photos to my phone.

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!

In love with this camera. I personally have the black one but it’s one of my best purchases. It’s so easy to take everywhere compared to other DSLRs you may buy. The quality is incredible and it picks up audio well when filming. The best part is the wifi transfer. Within minutes you can send pictures from your camera to your phone and post them. Quick and easy to use.
This is a picture I took with it at my cottage on the weekend. The quality might look a bit off because when you upload photos sometimes it effects it

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?
