THE BIGGEST ISSUE I have is that it overheats. This started about 2 months ago. While recording the, camera overheats and shuts down. When it shuts down, it does NOT save your recording. This means that I've lost it all. This is very frustrating. I have to remember to stop it every so often so that it saves and re-record. So i'm recording in short intervals.
I tried to contact Sony directly. Nothing. I tried to contact Sony through Amazon's "support" button (message) feature. Nothing. So, I'm frustrated that I spent $$$ on something that I'm prob not going to use anymore. I will be looking for a new video recorder!
First impression: So far so good. I’ve had it for only 3 days. I purchase this to carry around since my Nikon D850 was too heavy for lugging around daily. I LOVE that it’s lightweight. We were out all day and I had it on a strap (not the one it cane with) around my neck & barely noticed it (where my Nikon would have started giving me neck/shoulder pains after an hour). The quality is great so far. I’m used to fixed prime lens so I didn’t care too much for the kit lens. I’ve ordered a prime lens and it won’t be here for another couple of days. I compared the a5000, a5100, & a6000 before deciding to go with the a5100. I compared all specs side by side and decided for myself I wanted the a5100. I plan to use it for everyday photos & product photos so I don’t need anything too costly. I also compared it to the Mark 3 Olympus and I chose the Sony based on 1) size 2) weight 3) crop sensor 4) look (yes, I care about how it looks lol). 5) megapixels & even though it didn’t have 4K video, I didn’t plan on vlogging so it didn’t matter too much. Will update soon!
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.
