As others have said this is a phenomenal entry camera with the most bang for its buck professionally.
There are photographers who still ONLY use this camera in 2017. In fact, there are many youtube videos benchmarking this with other models that are 5 times to 11 times the price, and the conclusion is the Sony a6000 because of how well it performs relative to its cost
● Great landscape shots with a high dynamic range. If the scene is well lit you will get a beautiful shot.
● Forgiving for beginners.
● Advanced enough to crank out gorgeous footage ( There is community made luts to give the appearance of SLOG2 or SLOG3, which are video formats of even more high-end cameras. Useful for color grading.
● Huge community of users to solve many problems that may arise.
● Great history of performance since its debut.
● Any lens you buy is reusable for future cameras in the Sony Ecosystem. Spend money on nice lenses and plan to upgrade camera bodies since bodies are kind of like cell phones. Future upgrades could be the A7ii or the A6300.
This is still a good option for shooting videos depending on your use case. I was introduced to this camera from recommendation from a travel vlogger. The YouTubers who use this, do so because of the small form-factor, versatility, great outdoor visuals and quality per dollar.
For indoor vlogging, this camera needs a bit of help.
For starters, the screen doesn't reticulate fully, and although it's possible to frame shots with taking pictures through the PlayMemories app, it doesn't actually do video through the app.
This means you will need an add-on screen OR to get a newer model such as the a6300 which shoots 4k video and DOES support the PlayMemories Video record feature for seeing yourself on a smartphone while recording.
The camera comes with serviceable audio, but I would definitely recommend one of Amazon's most popular external microphones lapel mics OR upgrading the stock audio with one of the few microphones compatible with this camera. That's right. This camera does NOT have an audio input jack so the audio options are limited. You can see a comparison of the quality of mics for this camera by googling" 4 Different Mic Sounds: sonya6000" At 1:19. (Not affiliated)
The summary of that video is that if you don't want to sync up audio in post than the best option is the Sony ECMGZ1M
★ http://amzn.to/2iDsRgF ★
If audio, video and studio lighting are critical factors for your production then consider the Sony Alpha a7R II ★ http://amzn.to/2i95kjK ★ which fixes all of the previously mentioned concerns and is designed for indoor scenes with everything the A6000 does.
However, the a6000 is still my #1 recommendation for people just starting, with its upgradability, great performance and large community still passionate about this camera.
