Why get a real camera if you have a smartphone?

Last year a baby deer was born in my front yard. This picture was taken of it with a Galaxy S6:

When I got home from my office 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.

I already have the a5000. Is the a6000 significantly better than the a5000? Thanks.

Joe

same here: I bought the a5000 when it was on sale for $298. Based on online reviews, there aren’t major differences between the two cameras. See: http://cameradecision.com/compare/Sony-Alpha-a5000-vs-Sony-Alpha-a6000

Joe

For the same price, you may want to consider the a5000 (which comes with more accessories + Squaretrade) which is almost the same as a6000 the biggest difference being the absence of the flash shoe.

I am interested in photographing dogs. They don’t pose for me and thus I need a super fast camera. Is this good enough for me? I travel a lot and so need good picture quality for far away objects too. Thank you. I don’t know much about photography.

Fin

This cameras autofocus isn’t quite fast enough. You might want to look at the A6300 or a similarly priced DSLR, although a DSLR will be heavier and bulkier. Also image quality of far away objects depends on the quality and focal length of the lens. If you really want a camera you should look into them and find out how they work and operate and what different things on a camera mean. If not then you might as well geta a point and shoot.

Woof

Yes, I guess I should do more homework before buying anything. I have a Panasonic Lumix bought 4 years ago. It’s good but not good enough for pets.

DSLR may be too bulky and heavy for me. I have neck pain and back pain.

There are so many cameras out there that it’s not easy to make a good decision. Thanks!

Myi

Amazon has the same Sony S6000 for the same price but without the accessories.

Yaakov

Any thoughts on whether the 5% savings with visa edge is worth it – is using Amex for extended warranty perhaps more worthwhile?
Not sure how the ink warranty compares, or if in general this is a major concern with this camera. Any guidance appreciated!

m4/3 instead?

Anyone interested in upping his/her photography game should also seriously consider the deals on micro 4/3 mirrorless cameras.
Both Panasonic and Olympus have cameras on sale in the same price range as Sony a6000 but with many more features, like much better image stabilization, touch screen focus, and 4K video. Features you’d need to shell out several more $100s for Sony equivalents.
Also, the cameras and more importantly the lenses are smaller/lighter than Sony. Yes, image quality is slightly lower, but that’s only noticeable if you plan on blowing up pictures to large poster sizes.
For starters check out the Panasonic GX85 or Olympus OM-D E-M10 mark ii or mark iii.
Honestly, I’m debating right now which of these to get. Initially considered Sony after Dan’s reviews, but heavily leaning toward Panasonic or Olympus now…
