Bought the Sony Alpha 6000 mirrorless technology camera new from Amazon ~ 6 months ago for its excellent low-light photography reviews. Cost was over $700. It delivered big-time in my ability to capture shots of he Northern Lights. Not sure how these models compare but specs look VERY similar and this looks like a great deal.
Buy this, sell the body, keep the lens, buy an a6000 body, enjoy.
I have had one of these for about a year. A month ago, it dropped about a foot onto a slate floor. The lens broke and the metal frame cracked open. It was my first first Sony camera…not impressed. Image quality is fine, but it strikes me as fragile.
Had a similar experience with a Waterford crystal goblet. It held water fine, but broke when I dropped onto a hard surface. Kind of
Were you under the impression that it was made out of Gorilla Glass?
I just upgraded from a NEX-3 to the A6000. Big fan of the size and features and lenses (well, some if them) of the Sony mirrorless line. Same size sensor as all your friends’ Canon and Nikon D-SLRs.
If you get this, I stongly suggest buying the Sigma 30mm e-mount lens to go with it. Very sharp!
I got the next model up (5N) for $50 more at Amazon, new, just before Christmas. It was on sale that day. So if you can’t get this now, maybe Amazon has the 5N on sale again sometime soon. Maybe.
These ain’t the old Instamatic or Pentax K1000. Too many tiny parts, micro-switches, etc.
BTW, I dropped a 58mm f/1.2 lens “about a foot” to a hard surface, it wrecked the helical threads big time.
Very few Nerf cameras at this moment.
And “beyond economical repair” is the phrase you will here. [Love all the busted digitals on eBay “for parts or repair!!”]
Digital camera manuals are FULL of warnings about them being “delicate electronic instruments” and all the stuff than can ruin them.
My favorite: “Do not use in an explosive atmosphere.”
But cheer up! It would be obsolete in another year anyway and a newer, better model will be out for less money!
[I just bought a 9 year old Sony camera with night-vision that was originally $700 for ten bucks!]
I also have a Canon G15 (also a delicate electronic instrument), it has taken way worse drops, with lens extended, and came out of it cosmetically, and functionally, without a problem. I also have owned other P&S cameras, DSLR’s. None of them has every broke from a fall. Perhaps I was expecting too much from the Sony, I didn’t realize it was as delicate as Waterford Crystal.
$25 less than Woot price at checkout.
I have had this great camera for over a year. The picture quality is excellent and the ability to use cheap legacy lenses (with an adapter) adds to the value. It is perfect for upgrading from a compact- not much bigger, LCD screen (no touch screen and no view finder), built in flash and decent kit lens. Low light photos come out great. Buy an extra battery and a wall charger, a decent camera bag (cameras are fragile), extra SD cards and you have a great set up without a nose bleed price.
“Digital camera manuals are FULL of warnings about them being “delicate electronic instruments” and all the stuff than can ruin them.”
Here is a great, and rather famous review, on how delicate these electronic instruments are:
One caveat, it has the worst customer satisfaction rating of all of the resellers on that page at 90%. Maybe 90% is still good enough odds, but whenever I’ve bought at Amazon, I go for a higher rating.
