Is The Sony A6000 Worth It In 2018?

Thanks! Share it with your friends!

Here is my 2018 review of the Sony A6000, which i think is still one of the best budget friendly cameras for YouTube and film making to date. After the success of last years review, i decided to do a review this year. More on this beauty to come in the future!

LATEST VIDEO FOR 2019: https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=0v5wuB4Ufjw

And yes, before you all ask, this video was shot 100% on the A6000.

Those of you who want a camera in 2018 will no doubt have been researching the best one you can buy for a given price range.
Well, the Sony A600 might be your solution.

Although old, it still holds its own against various entry level Compact System Mirrorless cameras that are new to the market now.

So if your considering buying one in 2018, then enjoy the video, and hopefully you can make your mind up eventually 🙂

Ryan Meadows says:

i didn’t watch the video… but- 100%.
it is great for enthusiasts, and anyone else getting into interchangeable lens cams or wanting great IQ in a small package. also makes a great second/back-up body for working photographers on a budget, even pros, too.

you’re not getting any noticeable difference in image quality by using the a6500 over this camera – just extra (minute, imo) features any decent photographer can live without.

in 2019, i’ll most likely be using an a7 III, and my a6000 for 95% of my work.

Nestor Garcia says:

Gracias por el Consejo

Danny Dam says:

Great review
I own a Sony a6000
I mainly shoot still photos and no videos. Do you think it's worth to upgrade to the a6500?

Alfa Grace Coranez says:

I just bought A6000 today and saw this video. Awesome!

Jorgiestayfly says:

Is this camera worth buying if you have an iPhone X? If so, why?

Lulu B says:

A600 used for $350 is it a good price? I need help!

Jessica Bricker says:

How do you think this would do as a secondary camera?
I have a d750 and I want something a bit smaller. I’m not a beginner just broke.

Dean Mellor says:

Thinking of buying one of these as a complete beginner camera. I want it for mainly just capturing stills and learning how to take decent photos. I don't need 4k video. Is it still worth buying at the end of 2018? Or is there something newer worth looking at. How does this compare to the Fuji xt100 which is newer and similarly priced?
