I've owned my a6000 for about 3-4 years now. I'd suggest it to anybody just getting into photography. Although, if you have the extra money the 6300 or 6500 are obviously great options as well. An A7 model will definitely be in my future bag.What are you guys shooting with? Ive been interested in getting into photography for fun, have been eyeing the sony alpha mirrorless options; mainly the a6000.
Nice pictures so far!
weirdly enough...thats one of the draws (of any of those Sonys) for me. such a trouble maker.....If you're okay with having people think you have sub par gear because your camera body has a smaller footprint than an iPhone 7, then the a6000 is the camera for you.
this made me think of a quote from someone. and my personal "issue" (or at least what bothers me most, on my stuff, on the daily). and why that comment i had about "you got a shot on a beach, this other dude has a shot on a beach......etc etc" flew outta my mouht. i can follow/replicate instructions i come across, based on data like Bling mentioned, or verbal suggestions. just move this dial that way, change this number to so and so, spin this other thing, then push the button. but theres something missing on mine....:crying:Yeah, I'd love to see some discussion on how some of these shots are taken.
... to help make my photo by the lake tell more of a story then just some dude parked next to the water quick and took a photo.....lol.
^^^imo, thats the more important part. compared to buttons and numbers.That's it exactly. One of my mentors used to say; the difference between a picture and a photograph is that a photograph has intent. You intend to not just show reality, like a picture might do, but set it up, to present it for your viewer. Of course, technically they are both the same, but thinking about it this way is a nice way to separate the two via intent. Don't just show me what was there, show me what you want me to see.

My friends give me a hard time if we see somebody with a big DSLR setup and a zoom lens cause my camera and 50mm is tiny in comparison.weirdly enough...thats one of the draws (of any of those Sonys) for me. such a trouble maker.....
