Sony A6000 Camera – 4k Mirrorless Digital Camera

I started out vlogging with the Sony A6000 camera and appreciate its small size for vlogging on-the-go, which I am a lot since I travel vlog. It has the tilt screen so you can get those shots high and low and perfect when I'd rather have a smaller camera rather than carrying the bigger camera I use, Panasonic Lumix G85 which is much heavier, but still great for my needs.

Everyone is different in what their needs are so if you want a more compact, lightweight camera for still images and videos, then the Sony A6000 packs a huge punch.

Specs:

  • Great performance in small size and weight, fast auto focus with 179 AF points and 11Fps.
  • Capture life in high resolution with 24MP APS-C sensor.
  • Instant sharing via smartphone with Wi-Fi and NFC.
  • Low light photos with ISO range of 100-25600.
  • Easy and intuitive controls help you shoot like a pro.
  • Record Full HD 1080/24/60P video
  • Convenient features like tilt LCD, pop-up flash and MI shoe.
  • 24 MP APS-C CMOS sensor and Focus Sensitivity Range :EV 0 to EV 20 (at ISO 100 equivalent with F2.8 lens attached)
  • Hybrid AF with 179-point focal plane phase-detection and 25 contrast detect points.
  • Up to 11 FPS continuous shooting. 
  • 3-inch tilting LCD with 921,000 dots

Sony A6000 Camera Review

When I started out vlogging, I purchased the Sony A6000 camera on a recommendation of another vlogger. I wanted something small, light weight, durable, takes great photos and video, and I can take anywhere with less intrusiveness.

In my first year of vlogging YouTube videos, I filmed exclusively with the Sony A6000 camera using the Sony omni directional microphone.

It sits well on tripods, gorilla pods, and selfie sticks and doesn't make your arm go numb, since it's so light weight.

My only wish for this camera is that the screen would not only tilt, but turn around facing the other direction so that when you're facing the camera you can see yourself. I still got a good feel for it even though I couldn't see myself, but the good news is that I wasn't sitting there looking at myself in the camera as I film which sometimes can happen when your shooting your video. Instead you want to talk to the lense (the viewer) not the screen (yourself).
