    Good deal! Though it's a shame they don't have the A6300 or A6500 on their eBay store…

    • +1 vote

      I'm just being patient hoping for a sale to coincide with the cashback, the a6300 for $850 ($150 cashback) from TGG from the last promotion was unreal, been kicking myself for missing that one

      Hopefully the 4k,120fps, better AF and faster writes will be worth the wait and money

      •  

        I'd be waiting 7 days for a probable announcement of the model to supersede the a6500! Hoping for a 15-20% off deal that will cover that model and a 18-105 G series in the near future!

        •  

          Thought they were gonna announce it at Photokina lets hope before PhotoPlus this time

          •  

            @YourImag1nat1on: I'd say, the EOS R was a major letdown for me, time to sell up all the Canon Glass and cash up whilst upgrading and downsizing! WIN-WIN-WIN.

            • +2 votes

              @giBzoR: I've just committed to selling all my Canon kit in favor of the A7M3. Definitely a little nerve racking to say the least but I am somewhat excited.

              •  

                @stumbows: I don't regret selling my 5Dmk4 and getting the A7M2 (and now A7M3). The sensor is just far superior, far more dynamic range. Its much lighter, especially when you team it up with the 35mm F2.8

                •  

                  @dtpearson: I've ordered the Sigma Art 35mm 1.4 to go with it. I film more video than even photo which is why the Sony was so appealing. Looking forward to the high dynamic range.

  •  

    Is there any benefit moving to this from my NEX6?

    • +1 vote

      I think it would be a very minimal upgrade for the price, if i was you I'd wait until the 15th of novemeber when the eftpos cashback should start and look for a good deal on the a6300 or even a6500. Should get much more bang for your buck on the upgrade

      •  

        Sony eftpos cashback offer definitely starting on 15th Nov?

    Is this better than Sony Rx100? I have a Rx100 (M2) but recently I dropped it and dented the body a bit (flash won't pop up anymore). Thinking of getting another one to replace it (I also own a Canon 70D but find it too heavy to carry around). Thanks.

    • +4 votes

      To be honest, I've had an A6000, and I'm looking to changing over to the newest RX100. It really depends on what you plan on using the camera for. I initially got the A6000 thinking I'd use it during travel and practice playing around with the settings and hopefully be able to take a decent photo, but to be honest, I still just use the stock standard auto settings, and for the travel I tend to do (backpacking) it's still too bulky. I'd much prefer a compact with a decent optical zoom like the RX series that I can hide in my pocket to deter potential thieves.

      • +2 votes

        +1 Stick to the RX100.

        If you already own a canon 70d the a6000 is a pointless camera. A sensible decision would be to get rid of the lot and run with just a a6000 though.

      •  

        I've got an NEX6 and looking to get the RX1005A. Are you valuing the zoom on the Mark VI more than the wider aperture on prior models?

      •  

        Seconding this (and I use a Canon M10 rn, essentially the canon A6000 equivalent) - but I took an RX100 Mk1 around asia backpacking last year which I picked up sued for about $300 ages ago, some of the best photos I ever took came from that little thing.

        In the end, fitting it in your pocket is something you don't appreciate until you're using a bigger camera and missing shots because you were too lazy to carry it or didn't want to take a bag.

    •  

      Depends what you want to use it for. I have an RX100Mk1 and an a6000 with a sony 35mm 1.8 (only lens I have). My photos are generally always portraits/street photography so the a6000 and lens combo suits me well. However, the new RX100s are very good.

    •  

      These are very different models - this is physically larger than the RX100, interchangeable lenses, bigger APS-C sensor. This should do better in low light because of that. Personally I think this is a far better camera (less limiting if you are really keen on photography), but it is significantly larger/heavier so it depends on you personally.

    •  

      I’ve got the Sony RX100V mark 5 and it’s the best camera I’ve ever used. More so the video quality is AMAZING

    •  

      same thing happened to my rx100. but it's okay because i don't use flash ever.

    •  

      I've switched from nex 6 with great but large lens kit setup to g7x 2. It's smaller and much easier to carry, and has a nicer and quicker user interface. I take the time to edit my photos to maximise how they look and the main sacrifice I've noticed there is the inability to crop in for asthetics and keep a clean high quality photo. You really need to take more time to get the photo right in the first place. It also helps to know various camera tricks for maximising bokeh (e.g. stand back and zoom in). If you don't normally do that and keep the camera in auto you'll be much happier with a smaller camera.

    Best with a sigma 30mm f1.4 for ridiculously good lowlight performance. Also, I believe that there's a capture one express version for Sony users. Well worth the fun although I wasn't a fan of the kit lens myself.

  • +1 vote

    Is this a good camera for landscape and travel guys? Does anyone have any personal experience with this?

    • +2 votes

      yeah, get a sigma 30mm f1.4 lens for 400 during an ebay sale and you'll be taking some really nice photos, especially in low light settings. brought it with me throughout east asia and the lights at night looked amazing.

          yeah dude nice reply good on ya so proud of you man

    • +3 votes

      30 mm is approx 45 mm in full frame equivalent. I would go for 16 to 20 mm for wide landscape pics.
      30 mm is great for portraits and people IMHO.

      • +13 votes

        Sigma 16mm 1.4 is the perfect lens for the A600X cameras (especially landscape). I used it 90% of the time (as my main lens) over the last 4 months of travel.

            @giBzoR: Thank you so much for the kind words, mate.

          Yes, that lens is perfect for Landscape compared to 30 mm.

          •  

            @EnALup: 30mm 1.4 great for kids parties.

          Mate your photos are amazing.

          •  

            @nomoneynoproblems: Thanks mate! It's a new hobby of mine. The Sony A600X is my first "proper" camera — it's perfect for beginners as it's quite user-friendly.

        •  

          How did you manage to carry it around with you all the time? The lens seems quite large! Also I love the photos you've taken.

          •  

            @SupplyandDemand: I traveled with carry-on luggage (7kg) only for the 4 months. I travel quite light so there's more space for my camera and lenses.

        •  

          Would you mind confirming the exact model/manufacturer number for the lens please?
          Pretty sure I have found the right one, but I would like to be certain.
          Thanks :)

              @tryonthis: Thanks, I thought so!
              I was looking at the Sony E 50mm F1.8 OSS - SEL50F18 but this looks like a good and maybe even better option.
              Only downside is no OSS in the Sigma from what I can see and a touch more expensive, but not too much more..
              Anyone owned both, or been able to do a comparison between them?
              Thanks :)

              •  

                @mrbargainz: Which body are you using it on? if its the 6500 you have the IBIS which gives you +5 stops or something anyways without lens stabilisation.

                •  

                  @giBzoR: Only an A6000 for now.. they have been very slow to bring out new models to replace the 6000, 6300 and 6500 but once they do I'll likely look at upgrading.

    • +3 votes

      The A6000 is an amazing travel camera, it's just the right size to be unobtrusive while still giving you DSLR-level quality. Make sure to get a decent variety of lenses — my favourites are the 16-50mm kit lens, plus the 35mm f/1.8 and the classic 50mm f/1.8.

      • +1 vote

        Am travelling right now and this is exactly right. It's perfect size, so much better than the huge Nikon D3000 I used to carry

  •  

    Sooooo tempted. I've been eyeing this Sony Series for a couple of weeks, and even considering making the jump to the full frame A7 Mark2, however beyond my budget really. Found this review really helpful for those considering this camera 4 years after it's release (https://shotkit.com/sony-a6000-review/).
    BTW, what cash back deal ?

    • +1 vote

      This is the cashback deal i am referring to https://www.camera-warehouse.com.au/news/sony-australia-bonu... obviously from last year but i have spoken to sony sales and they said there will be another one this year but couldn't confirm when.

      I am just assuming nov 15th because that is when the last one started

      •  

        Ah, I was just going to ask how you knew there was a cashback coming. So we don't know details or date but we can expect some sort of cashback.

      •  

        My question is 'what would be the price before cashback?'
        If it is 899 or sth, it might not be the better deal thou?
        Do u have any idea?

    •  

      If you're willing to go second hand there are a lot of second hand Sony A7IIs on the market (given the release of a number of higher end full frame Sony cameras).

      •  

        Cheers, I know, still over the $1200.00 AUD mark with any sort of lens… again, beyond my budget. Under or closer to 1K and I'd buy (I know I'm dreaming, OzBargain dreaming on such a winters daaaaay!).

      • +1 vote

        I got my mark 2 with a 16-35mm f4 zeiss, a bag, a tripod, an sd card and some misc accessories all barely used for only $1600. Second hand is definitely the way to go! The key is to make offers to a massive amount of sellers and also to substitute paying the full amount for offering convenience. If you say you can pick the item up before the end of the day most of the time the seller won't even bat an eye at agreeing to reduce the price by 20%.

        •  

          Cheers for the tip, i may try tis when I stretch the budge anti… Still atlas over $500 off what you paid. I've seen couple with 1xlens for $1275 on gumtree unfortunately in QLD (I'm in Vic).

  •  

    I got it for $471 with this old deal: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/351588 Obviously required an AMEX so barrier to entry for some. No point reminiscing as this deal is a good one.

    Great camera. Favourite lens would be my Sigma 16mm f1.4.

    • +1 vote

      Damn you're right, didn't see that one on my quick search, $571 even without amex makes it cheaper than this

        It's a long dead and buried deal but did include Sony's Xmas EFTPOS card offer. Yours is the current greatest!

    Damn good price considering people are still trying to flog second hand ones on gumtree and Facebook for $700+

    I recently sold my 550d and got an a6000. best decision ever. I can fit my camera in my work bag and take it around. Definitely recommend for anyone wanting to jump into the mirrorless world.

    •  

      I agree wholeheartedly, I've been using my A6000 for 4 years now and my 550D has been gathering dust all this time. I really should get around to selling it…

    •  

      +1 I saved about 5kg shifting from canon to sony kit. Huge difference on holiday. Sony glass however is expy - be warned.

      •  

        Very true. If you have time to go slow though you can get some epic vintage lenses for cheap. That won't settle the gaping hole in our hearts for shiny new gear though will it hahaha.

    •  

      @edshays - where did you sell your 550d?

    I got this camera for free and use it more often than any other camera (of which I have an absurd amount).

    This still a great camera and for a kit lens it has one of the best around, great price.

  •  

    As with all these comments this camera is a gun. If you want cheap lens I bought the 7artisans series, with great results.

  •  

    Can this fit in a jeans or jacket pocket? Looking for a good travel camera.

    • +4 votes

      Nope. Unless the pockets are huge.

    •  

      Yeah, it's called an iphone.

    •  

      I carry the NEX6 with the 16-50 lens attached which is the same size as the A6000, in any of the pockets of my cargo pants and cargo shorts.

      It's a little heavy compared to a compact, but fits ok and quick to use.

      Definitely wouldn't fit comfortably in jeans.

  •  

    It’s been a lot better before ??

  •  

    Better wait for December sony cashback.

  •  

    Got a couple of Sony A-mount and Minolta lens. Which sony adapter is better suited to a6500?

      How did you get into photography. I want to get into it especially travel cinematography but I don't know where to start.
      Also is this cam good for video?

      •  
        •  

          Limited to 1080p, but the quality you get (and with this kit lens, it's got optical stabilisation, so smooth video) is very good.

      •  

        I got into it with this camera actually. I spent a bunch of time checking out youtube vids, and exploring guides/websites like this: https://digital-photography-school.com

        Kept taking photos, trying different styles, learning new software and processing techniques.

        Practise!

        As for video, it's limited to 1080p, but the quality you get (and with this kit lens, it's got optical stabilisation, so smooth video) is very good.
