There is a lot to like with this camera. Aspiring photographers who are ready to graduate beyond their smartphones or point and shoots will appreciate the help button feature that provides helpful tips based on shooting mode.

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.

The perfect camera for my makeup mavens out there! Makes skin smooth and really brings out your eye shadow and lip colors. And for my girls who follow "Amrezy" On instagram and wonder how her skin glows you will get that same "glowy/smooth" skin effect as her if you put the skin smoother option on Medium.

I bought the a5100 a week ago as a secondary camera to my Nikon D7100 while travelling and I'm really happy with it. I was hesitating between the RX100M3 and this one, but I choose this one for the price, and the fact that it is easy to clean the sensor when dust appear on photos. RX100M3 cant be opened for cleanup... A5100 camera is small and light but produce great picture and videos. The camera handling is good, if you dont change settings every shot. There is not a lot of control on it, so everything you want to configure is done through the menu.

I saw a lot of complaint about the fact that there is no viewfinder on this model and that the LCD was not bright enough in sunlight. Honneslty the LCD is OK. For sure, if you are in direct sun light, it will be hard to see details, and you wont be able to focus manually, but this camera is not intend to be used as a real DSLR, you are trading some weight and options to get this affordable,small camera that can produce great shot.

Two thing about the LCD, you can rotate it 180up for selfles or shot from the ground, but you cant rotate it down if you want to take a shot over heads. Some people are complaining about this, but you can easily take the whole camera upside down and your LCD will automatically rotate the display so you take your overhead shot.

Sony is advertising a touch screen display, but this is only for some function ( take picture, select focus point). The menu buttons cant be selected via the touch screen. This is not bugging me more than that, the menu is fairly simple to use. Only if you have to enter your SSID/WPA password, this can take longer, but this is not something you have to use very often...

This is truly one of the best cameras with DSLR quality on the market. I was deciding between this and a Canon T5i and decided to get the a5100 instead because it's Sony's newest cameras, which means it has all the new technologies in it (mirrorless, touch screen, wifi, apps). I love how the viewfinder flips 180 degrees so you can take selfies and see yourself. The video quality of this camera is great and you can change out the lens just like most DSLR cameras. The white color really makss this camera unique. Did I mention it has a touch auto focus so you just touch the screen. I love this camera!!!

I'll be comparing the a5100 to the NEX-3N, which I still have and love (see my review from last year). I skipped the a5000 because it was too close to the 3N in feature set, so I was really hoping for vast improvements with the a5100. If you read the highlights and tech specs, sure, it sounds like it would blow the 3N away in about every category. Upon closer inspection and use, it really is more of an iterative evolution of the 3N and 5 series core.

Great points:
- you can now set min/max ISO, unlike the 3N
- zebra pattern for making exposure decisions
- wifi remote control, but feature set and ability to set focus very limited in the PlayMemories app
- fit, finish, and design are more modern (chamfered edges, matte textured plastics)
- PDAF of 179 points

Terrible miscues:
- touch screen lcd seems to be limited to only 'touch focus' or 'touch shutter'; you can't navigate menus or options with touch!?!
- shutter sound still goes 'ker-chunk'; I've learned to live with this on the 3N, but I was truly hoping for a completely silent mode

Other things to note:
- the menus are improved and more organized, but again, I wanted to touch and select menu options, not dial it in with the controller!
- battery life is 400 CIPA which is decent, not as good as the 480 CIPA of the 3N, but still decent
- the 921K resolution of the screen is better, of course, but to me, it seemed just marginally better than the 460K res of the 3N
- the IQ is great as usual, but between the 24MP of the a5100 and the 16MP of the 3N, it really didn't matter to me..
