HOT! Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera With 16-50mm And 55-210mm Lenses For $499.99 Shipped From Amazon After $298 Price Drop!

This was selling for $798 and is now by far the lowest price ever from Amazon!

This package comes with a wide angle and a telephoto lens! I’ve never seen that package sell for less than $698 until now!

Why get a real camera if you have a smartphone?

A baby deer was born in my front yard and this picture was taken of it with a Galaxy phone:

When I got home later, I took a picture of it with the telephoto lens on my Sony a6000:

I haven’t edited these pictures at all. You can tell the difference in quality that you can get from a phone’s camera versus a mirrorless camera.

I’ve been using the A6000 for several years and love it, it takes fantastic pictures very quickly. The quality of pictures in low-light situations and with zoom are far better than from even the most advanced smartphones. And I can easily transfer the pictures to my phone over WiFi or even use my phone as a remote with the phone displaying the camera screen. The electronic viewfinder also does wonders when it’s sunny out.

Mirrorless digital cameras offer SLR type performance and sensor size in a compact and intuitive package. In fact it even does things better than an SLR, such as video. It’s bigger than the point and shoot you might be used to, but the pictures it takes are just incredible. In a pinch it can still fit into your pocket even with the 16-50 lens on, something that can’t be done with an SLR.

This preferred over an SLR for family portraits of the kids etc ?
