Top Customer Reviews
Video creators will also like its fast focusing, the 50 megabit recording mode, and its full frame 4:2:2 uncompressed HDMI output.
Image quality is excellent both for stills and video thanks to the large sensor that's packed inside the rather small camera body. It also incorporates plain english descriptions for each camera mode to explain exactly what it's about to do.
But there are a few compromises. Experienced photographers might find themselves frustrated by the lack of control surfaces. With only one dial on the camera, a few button pushes are required to switch between aperture, shutter, and ISO adjustments.
Video creators will be disappointed to learn that the camera cannot be operated off of external power. And charging the battery inside the camera can take as long as 5 hours. The a5100 also lacks an external microphone input.
The touch screen is also problematic. Most controls don't take advantage of it and it's very difficult to see in direct sunlight.
But this camera isn't being marketed as a pro-level piece of gear - it's aimed squarely at photographic newcomers who are looking to transition to a real camera. And for those consumers this is a very capable camera with attributes found in much more expensive cameras.
After I updated firmware on long lens sel55210, focuses so much faster with this camera.
Touch focus isn't useful, but autofocuses so well I haven't needed it.
Wish it had built-in wireless remote support, wired remote I added for winter sticks out of micro-USB port and a drop will break the port.
Cellphone WiFi remote control app requires exposed fingers to the cold, thinnest metalized finger gloves too thin for below freezing, while wired remote has big buttons that work with thicker gloves, so I only use the wired remote, but I don't feel like spending double for the top of the line model just to get that one feature.
It's easy to use and has all kinds of neat features. I spent a lot of time watching reviews and demos on YouTube before making my decision to buy this.
One small negative comment. .. sometimes the strap gets in the way, so I remove it when I don't need it.
For those that complain about the LCD screen in the direct sun... there's a setting you can change to make it brighter. Works great... although I would agree that having a viewfinder would be better.
