I have a lot to learn, but so far, I am impressed with the number of features and customization options available. I decided on this model for a few reasons:
- Fit it my budget (barely)
- Excellent autofocus system
- External mic port
- Battery can charge inside the camera, so I can use external battery packs as needed
- Very manageable size
- Since the Alpha line is so popular, there's tons of online tutorials and guides for using this camera
- Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity
So, why only 4 stars? In short, the Imaging Edge Mobile app for the iPhone is incredibly frustrating. Sony makes great hardware, but they fall flat on their face when it comes to creating usable software and apps. Imaging Edge Mobile is a text book example of Sony's inability to consider user experience when designing an app. Clearly, this was made by hardware engineers and not UI/UX designers. Which would be acceptable, if the app actually worked as intended. The setup for WiFi to transfer photos is really confusing and poorly documented, but at least that works. The Bluetooth connection for geo-tagging photos (using my iPhone XR as the source of location information) is a complete failure. I can pair the a6100 camera to my phone once, and it works for a while, but the next time I use my camera, the app loses the Bluetooth connection and can't reconnect. No amount of playing with settings in the app or camera seem to help. My only option is to uninstall the app, re-install the app and set it up again from the beginning. And now I need to find a new way to geo-tag my photos because the Sony Imaging Edge Mobile app has failed at its job.
As a result, the very first review of the a6100 on Amazon is a bit of a negative review. In my opinion, this is a 5-star camera with a 1-star mobile app. If geo-tagging and mobile apps are not a priority for you, you're in for a treat with this camera. But, if you want to geo-tag your photos, you'll need to find another option.
I've added some sample photos taken with this camera and a 50mm f1.8
Couldn't ask for anything more from a camera in that price range
Sony has committed themselves much more to their full frame offerings than the APS-C format. Its true that Sigma and others have tried to step in to fill the gaps in Sony's line up, but you have to ask yourself if this company doesn't have a complete line up of lenses for APS-C how do they treat the APS-C cameras for firmware updates, software updates, and camera bodies? Their priority is clearly with full frame. Remember you're buying into a system of lenses as the camera body is meant to be updated as technology advances. If you have ten Sony lenses you'll have a strong incentive to stay with their products so do yourself a favor and make certain the company you choose has a track record of continuous improvement and development.
I got this as a gift from a well meaning relative, and to be honest I prefer Sony's color science in JPEG. That said I wont be keeping it because I can't live with the EVF. I recommend you look for what you need and want in a camera and then do your homework as to which system will meet that need best. I'm primarily a stills shooter and image quality is my priority. Because of this I'll be going over to Fuji because I believe the XT-30 will better meet the needs I have with a huge line of affordable quality lenses and the XF18-55 kit lens is the absolute best on the market. If you are primarily a video shooter and can live with the limitations of the A6100's viewfinder this may be a good deal for you. But if you plan to stay with Sony for a small price you can update to the A6400 get a metal body, a much better EVF, and a few other perks.
With all that said this is a good camera. It takes great shots out of the camera with little to no input from the user. The menus are a little convoluted but adapting isn't that difficult once you get the hang of it. Low light shooting is ok with minimal artifacts and noise. The A6100 at the time of this review is about ~$750 which means it technically isn't trying to compete with the other cameras I mentioned above. Some of its direct competitors are the Fuji X-A7 and Cannon m200 neither of which offer a viewfinder, so in fairness I can't dock it star for having a crap viewfinder and while I would like to knock one off for the lens situation it wouldn't do this camera justice.
For a price sensitive buyer this is a great deal and easily 5 stars. With a little more cash and a desire to stick with the Sony system the A6400 or A6600 make a better value proposition.
