This was selling for $648 yesterday and is now the lowest price ever. This kit includes a wide angle lens, a spare battery, and a shoulder bag.
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:
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.
What kind of camera do you use?
