A Variety of Reds in my Kitchen, Photographed with a New Mirrorless

Red Still Life in the Kitchen Photographed with Mirrorless Camera

Portable, lightweignt. Able to fit in a small bag instead of a huge one.  Not so bulky.

Interchangeable lenses. A postive review all around.

You don’t always want to lug heavy DSLRs and weighty (but wonderful) glass around your neck.

A phone camera isn’t sufficient as an alternative.

AND there was the bonus of a hefty instant rebate at time of purchase.

I’d been looking and thinking about mirrorless cameras for awhile.

Reading reviews, I thought it would be a Fuji but the SONY a5000 had an affordable 20.1 Megapixel price that seemed fortuitous.

I’m satisfied with the results so far.   Will keep experimenting.

  1. You should have a lot of fun with your new toy!! I’m mirrorless all the way. Even my Sony full frame is now mirrorless. 🙂 🙂 About the same size as a normal DSLR but a lot lighter. Have fun playing.

    • I can’t get over the lightness and clarity. Thanks Cee. I may look at the full frame too. Is there just one model? Which do you have? Mirrorless is amazing

      • I have the Sony a7ii. It is an amazing camera. It just came out the end of December. It was on pre-order so when it came out I got it right away. Anyhow, I’m amazed at the ease of use. It feel good in your hand. I had a Nikon D80 for years then moved to a Nikon mirrorless. And this seemed huge at first (after the mirrorless Nikon). But it took me only a day to fall in love with it. One thing I’m finding with the full frame is that it takes more information, of course, and I am not doing near the post processing I had to do with the smaller cameras. My only complaint is the batteries don’t last super long. So make sure you have two extra. On a long day’s shoot you will blow through at least one battery if not two. But that is easy to take care of.

        I went with sony because my first digitals and pre-dlsr cameras were all Sony and I still like so many of those photos. I decided to go with this new Sony and I am so pleased I did.

      • You can be sure I appreciate your taking time to write with this good info. Your pics are always wonderful. Thanks for telling me about the batteries too. I am going to check it out Cee. Thank you.

  2. Looks like you are enjoying the new camera!
    I have been looking at pricing on the same model you purchased 😉

  3. Will be watching carefully to see how you like it over the long term Ruth. I’m teetering on the edge of taking the plunge. I like the sound of Cee’s choice which is how I’m leaning. Photo is gorgeous, clarity is wonderful. Please be sure to let us know when you post which camera you’ve used. Enjoy it!!

  4. Congrats on the new purchase! Just over half-a-pound – wow. And a rebate to sweeten the pot even more – impressive! This photo is terrific (as usual) – so it looks like this camera will be a good fit for you. Have fun with it!

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
