      Its an overkill if you'll be using this camera on auto.

    • +8 votes

      No, it's perfect for a first camera.

      But it's not that small. Definitely not pocket sized. If you want this primarily for travelling and walking around etc, consider a point-and-shoot with a decent sensor, like a Sony rx100.

        M8 how is a FF camera where each lens is 2x the cost and heft a perfect camera for someone shooting in JPG?

        • +3 votes

          Full frame images will have a much higher dynamic range but far less digital noise. In most cases, you'll see a 1- or 2-stop improvement in high ISO performance when comparing a full frame sensor with a crop sensor. Also good during day trips when you take photos containing different areas of dark shadow and bright lighting.

            @Buy2Much: I'm acutely aware of the benefits, but are you aware of the cons? For a FIRST camera? For travelling?

        •  

          Stop regurgitating what 10 year old posts in forums regurgitated which was mostly outdated when they wrote it. Do some research in today's market and compare weight, size & cost.

          2x the heft & cost? Compared to?

          Non FF rx100 & a6000 series prices have continued to go up in price and FF options have continued to come down. With the entry level FF market being very competitive.. with technology improving FF but sensor size still a limiting factor on P&S & APS-C..

          The FF lens that comes with this camera is 45mm X 66.6mm and weighs 167g. Price: Free with camera. Digidirect eBay: $359.20.

          This camera has every possible advantage for travel. Which will help get a better shot in any environment at any time over a P&S.

          Most responses have not had weather-resistance or IBIS and have been touted as a superior travel option.. with no meaningful weight difference. I know my camera gets wet when travelling and it's mainly handheld for practicality. With lighting suboptimal a lot of the time.

          A6400 is 100g lighter because it doesn't have IBIS. With no meaningful size difference.

          If you get serious about photography you'll save money in the long run as well by not investing in lenses that aren't FF. When you eventually want the benefits only a FF will achieve. You'll also save on resale.
          Usually APS-C and MFT end up being expensive hobbies anyway once you buy in.

    •  

      If you're keen on full frame. If you're new to photography, I'd suggest the A6400. Great APS-C for photo/video. It will be more compact too, so great for travelling. In saying that, this price is so good, it's hard to say no to.

      • -1 vote

        The size difference is a couple of mm and 100g..

        • +6 votes

          APS-C means smaller and cheaper lenses, though.

            @garbage man: Have you seen the size & weight of the kit lens this comes with?

            Or the Sonnar T* FE 35mm F2.8 Zeiss

            Or the Sony FE 28mm f/2 SEL28F20

            • +1 vote

              @stickymoo: I'm sure there are plenty of compact FF lenses and plenty of chonky apsc lenses but my point is just that as a general rule you can get cheaper/smaller lenses the more cropped the sensor is.

        •  

          (Full-Frame) A7C: 124 x 71.1 x 59.7mm, 509g $1899 (kit)
          (APS-C) a6600: 120 x 66.9 x 69.3mm; 503g $2099 (body)

          Sony FE 50mm lens is compatible with both full-frame and APS-C Sony E-mount cameras

          Weight: 192g

          Can be had new for around $300 and second hand cheaper around $200.

          Size, weight & price don't correlate directly with sensor size.

          There's too many examples of cameras with sensors smaller than FF that end up being either bulky, heavy &/ or expensive. Especially when specialising.

          And plenty of cheap, compact & light FF examples. Sigma fp/ 422g, Canon EOS RP/ 485g, Panasonic S5/ 630g, Nikon Z5/ 675g. With equally compact, lightweight & cheap optics.

          Not to mention it's the modern features that dictate the size and not directly the sensor. With 4k video these cameras need larger heatsinks to help with overheating. Big video cameras are big not because of sensor size but because their body is practically one big giant heatsink.
          Not too mention how much smaller ergonomically do you want an a6600/ a7c to be?

          Also IBIS takes up space.. which is why the a6400 is 100g lighter and 19mm thinner than the a6600

          Which means for photo & video your more likely to require aid for the a6400. Grip, tripod, monopod, gimbal etc. Adding bulk, cost, weight..

      •  

        Canon G1X III.

        Interchangeable lens camera is wasted on noobs (no offence), especially a FF where people have no idea how to use it.

        Point n shot will yield better result/value.

      All depends on your budget, isn't it? If you have $1,899 to spare and have nothing better to buy other than a camera, go ahead with this one. Although the temptation to buy more lens will quickly cause your outlay to balloon out. If you're committed to eventually delving into the world of Sony's mirrorless cameras and lenses, I suppose this is relatively cheap. Full-frame sensor is a huge plus too. I wouldn't call this a beginner's camera though…

      If your concern is size, weight, photo quality and would like to learn a bit more about photography without thinking about lenses for now, I would recommend the Panasonic Lumix LX100. I got the Mk1 having come down from dSLRs due to size and it has been great for almost all purposes (not great for pro videos only because of no external mike output, though video quality is great). Big sensor (Four thirds 17.3mm x 13mm) with a standard zoom range (24-75mm). MkII priced lower than this one at RRP $1399.

      Sony RX100 MkVII is the other go-to for a compact camera that delivers on quality. Bigger-than-standard-compacts sensor at 1" (13.2 x8.8mm) with a great zoom range 24-200mm. Priced about the same as this at RRP $1699 although the previous iterations are still available at lower prices without compromising on much quality.

        I bought the RX100 VII for my wife for Christmas and got it for under $1300.

        An amazing piece of technology.

        •  

          Same. bought the VII refurb from sony ebay for $1k and the technology is just great. Just bought an extra grip as it's a bit too slippery lol.

        •  

          I chose a RX100 VA over the VII, which has a much brighter 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens, at the expense of the extra reach. I also got it refurbished at a great price. If I need more zoom I take my RX10 IV, which goes up to 600mm has the same internals as the VA and is incredibly sharp all the way through.

    • +1 vote

      Articulating screen, industry leading auto focus, eye focus, 5 Axis IBIS, incredible low-light capabilities, small full frame camera, weather-sealed, kit lens is the smallest and lightest ultra-compact standard zoom full-frame lens available.

      Those factors make this the perfect user friendly first camera for travel. Which will promote great hand held images and video in a wide range of situations. Taking a lot of user error out of the equation.

      And at this price your resale value at the end of the trip if you wanted to sell. I'd doubt you will lose any money. I recently sold my A7iii for more than the current price of this.

      My main concern with full-frame units is the size and weight (and price) of lenses (and bodies for that matter). If that isn't an issue and you want high performance in most areas, then go for it.

        I have the Tamron 28-70 and the A73 superb combination but this combo on sale is just so nice and compact for travel. Smaller cameras and lenses tend to get used more often. Also this kit lens is quite sharp for a bundled kit lens.

        • +2 votes

          The camera bodies aren't meaningfully different in size. The A7C isn't pocket sized, so either way you're still looking at having to carry a separate camera bag. Last time I went overseas (a couple of years ago now…) I left the interchangeable lens camera at home and took a Sony Rx100, and had no regrets. Got so many great photos to keep the memories. Sure, the quality was lacking in comparison and the wouldn't hold up in a photo competition, but that's not what holiday snaps are about for me.

          You can get the kit lens for $360 at the moment with digidirect ebay sale, so if you really want a compact zoom you could do that. But actually, given that this is so cheap, you could probably buy this and sell your A73 for cheaper? So maybe you're right?!

          •  

            @MisterTee: Lol you make valid points, which is why this deal was so tempting.

        •  

          Just to add in here that the viewfinder is in a reeeeeeally awkward sport on the A7C, so if you shoot through the viewfinder, I'd almost write off the A7C is not for you (stick with A7iii - I have the same kit you noted, incidentally, after months of deliberation). The A7C does look pretty though.

      • +3 votes

        A7C has better auto focus and better tracking. Not enough for me to swap an a73 for the a7c 🤷‍♂️ but i'm waiting for the a74 at probably double this price haha

        •  

          I’ve never felt the autofocus lacking in my A73 it never seems to miss shots. I’m a street shooter, people move pretty quickly on the street! It’s crazy how good camera tech has gotten.

        • +2 votes

          Articulating screen, unlimited video recording. 2 years younger than the A7iii, resale value, has real-time tracking which the A7iii does not. The A7C did get the same autofocus enhancements that are in the A7Siii, a9/a9II.

          You could make the switch and not be out of pocket.

          •  

            @stickymoo: Not debating the improvements in tech agree with your points, but doesn’t the A73 have real time eye tracking and animal eye auto focus too (via firmware updates.)? Articulating screen is a personal preference, for street shooters like myself flip up screens work better. Also the a73 has had excellent resale value. I think it probably boils down to new features vs viewfinder vs compact nature.

            • +1 vote

              @karankadam: A7III received real-time AF update not real-time tracking.
              Real-time tracking is a meaningful upgrade.

              At this point in time it does look like the A7iii will not get real-time tracking and that will be a selling point for the A7IV.

              At this price it isn't a terrible idea to switch out the A7iii for the A7C if the differences add value.

              It definitely doesn't become a cost factor.

              For me the extra video features make the transition worth it. When price is not a consideration.

      •  

        I agree. The differences are marginal.
        The only thing I would want from the a7c is the eye tracking, the no maximum video length and maybe the flipy screen. The extra memory spot would be useful I guess.

        You lose the second card slot and get a worse EVF (size wise).

        • +1 vote

          I haven't heard anyone call real-time tracking found in the A7C, A7RIV, A7Siii, A9ii as marginal.

          Which the A7iii doesn't have but the A7IV definitely will as a featured upgrade.

      •  

        Having come from an a6000, I do note the a67iii's evf hump and overall look puts people on guard in ways that the a6000 never did.

        It's worthwhile for the compact size and its less serious looking nature. If an a7c mk2 comes out with improvements to the evf then I'm in.

    Decisions, decisions. I have an ageing A7r2 that still produces magnificent photos but with a baby on the way, I feel that I may need better autofocus to capture candid moments. However, I like to crop my photos so I'm not sure how well the step down to 24mp will serve me.

    Anyone want to weigh in on this?

    • +1 vote

      Stalker mode is great. Ahem, I mean silent shutter. Eye tracking is fantastic and is worth the upgrade.

      The a7m4 might be coming out soon. So you could get that or wait for a discount on the a7m3.

      • +1 vote

        Thanks for the comment. Yep, waiting for the a7m4 to be out to snag an a7m3 for cheap may be the way to go. I'm thinking I'd really only need the insane autofocus when kids start zooming around as toddlers. As it stands, planking 3 or 4 grand on a camera body doesn't sit well with my wife.

        Strange how the camera world works. I grabbed the a7m2 for $2k a few years back but it seems like priced have stayed stagnant for a long time, probably because Sony hasn't been releasing many high resolution bodies in the R series.

      You won’t miss the extra pixels unless you’re a landscape photographer who prints huge. 24mp is nothing to be scoffed at and allows plenty of cropping. The eye autofocus on the A73s and higher ups is brilliant. Perfect tack sharp portraits every time.

      Depends on what you’re after. Autofocus is probably similar along with other modern features. What you’ll miss out on is the image quality (the look). Different sensor sizes. Edit: grammar

      • -1 vote

        Image quality is actually mostly on par. What you get with FF is shallower depth of field, because they usually don't make APS-C lenses with as wide of an equivalent F stop (eg you can easily get F2 on FF but you can't easily get F1.4 on APS-C (which is the equivalent in DOF)). But if on FF you rarely shoot faster than F2.8, then you may as well stay with APS-C.
