I recently acquired a new camera a Sony Alpha 6000, as my late Christmas/ Birthday/Mother’s Day present for myself. Although, I already own a Nikon DSLR 5100, I found that at my age (I turned 45). I found that traveling to an event to Antipolo carrying the almost 5 pound bulky DSLR is just waaay too much for my back.
2013, I started canvassing for a smaller abet similar type of camera. Mirrorless cameras seem to be the trend these days. The primary consideration of getting a mirrorless camera instead of the point and shoot one is the picture quality and of course the size and weight of the actual gadget.
My top picks that I was able to try out aside from the Sony A 6000 , were Fuji, Panasonic and Canon. Although I own a Nikon camera, I have not found a place that has a Nikon mirrorless camera on hand so I can try it out.
I would just like to say out right that I am not an expert nor do I claim to be one. I just want to share my amateur view and my love for this particular camera, I am still learning how to use it, this is basically an unboxing post and what in my opinion made it stand out among the ones I actually held and tried out.
