Sony a5100 Digital Camera is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overwhelming! I love this camera, I really do! It does pack a punch in a little package, so many professional features in this small camera, even though it can still be improved on some side, let me give a summary, Pros : + Compact, lightweight, fit in the pocket. + XAVC-S 60fps, wow! + The lenses are compact too. + So many features (Zebra, peak focus, guideline) + Amazing sensor, really works in low light. + Easy control Cons : - Overheat (The a6000 is fixed with firmware update, what about this one?) - XAVC-S only on 64GB or more SDCard (SDXC) - Few budget lens choices - Some guideline is still not in the right aspect ratio (I've tested it) - Some feature only available as purchasable apps. - Touchscreen only for focus, not in menu

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good backup camera Bought for when my DSLR was to big to bring with me. I thought image Quality was very poor for a 24mp camera until I got a 20mm 2.8 lens and yep the kit lens is poor not the body. I have produced good landscapes, portraits and street photography with the camera, but the AF has trouble locking onto fast moving objects. As a point and shoot camera with the ability to change lenses and more control (as long as you don't need to access quickly, having to dive into badly designed menus is not quick) then this is very good for the price. If this is your only camera I would recommend the A6000, because the lack of a view finder is a pain in sunlight since you cannot see the screen so you are shooting and hoping.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from frustrating wifi, good imges I bought this camera a month ago, and while the picture quality is good and the remote app is handy the restriction on the wifi really let it down. The on-board wifi hotspot only works up to 10 meter at a push. As the camera can connect to a normal wifi router to download app's I assumed this would be the same for the remote app - Nope. For some very odd reason the app only works through the hotspot. Also with the remote app the camera instantly sends pictures to your android or ios device. However when connecting to a mac/pc you can only dump send files. I had to buy a 3rd party wifi sd card to get this function. The camera image quality is good, very good low light vs noise. But don't buy this camera for its wifi connectivity.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a bad camera but not what I expected. I bought this camera because I was informed I could use my Minolta lenses with it, but they don't fit, there may be adapters available but I was disappointed. Also I lost the lens cap the first day because it has no cord to attach it to the body or strap. I'm not convinced about the size of the sensor and lack of mirror giving much better pictures. The camera is easy to use and very compact, and the menu system is 1st class. I need to spend more time using this camera to get the best from it and do not want to be too harsh in my judgement if there is a facility to amend this review later I may do so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dslr in your pocket If you want dslr quality photos but want a camera that fits in your pocket then this is the camera to buy. Lack of a viewfinder can be a problem in sunny weather but increasing the screen brightness and angling the screen you can get around the problem. Overall superb!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use and great features had real trouble deciding what to go for, DLSR, compact etc, glad i landed on this one, nice and small with the feature of interchangable lens but what pictures! so used to compacts and phone camera quality, when i fist saw these on the computer screen they looked amazing and then zooming in you can really tell the quality. so easy to use i'v eonly used the pre set so far and the burst shot is brillant for catching action moves. just and alround nice bit of kit for the family photographer how wants more than the compact can offer.
