Additional Information

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just WOW I upgraded from a tiny Sony Cybershot point and shoot camera. This guy blew me away. It's not that much of a hassle to carry around since it still fits in my purse, but it packs a punch of a dslr camera. The sensor is downright amazing and is 4 times bigger than my previous camera which makes a huge difference, especially in low light. I tested the a5100 in Asia in all sorts of conditions and it surpassed all my expectations even in auto mode. The flip screen is perfect for selfies and the color is true to reality. I haven't felt the need to use the flash yet since it performs so well in low light. Only minus is that my iphone does bettet in burst mode (not sure why) and there is no view finders so it's a little bit harder to see in bright light. Other than that this camera is my new best travel companion!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever Convinience Camera I own some pro cameras Dslr Nikon D and Canon for years, some point and shoot digital Convinience carry (small size) always have been lacking in my quality department, sometimes on my short getaway vacations of 5 or 4 days I seem to want to pack light including my camera equipment. Sometimes unwantingly leaving myself quality deprived, not anymore. With what I get now with my Sony is a very Big Bang for my small size travel companion, you can't get any better than this camera unless you go bigger and I have that with my other cameras which I use in a more setup environment with slave flash and umbrellas for photo shoots. For a get up and go situations I can count on a small camera to give me unparalleled results. Very happy in my decision to purchase a camera that can fill the size gap and Convinience of a small carry camera that packs a large punch!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera but one glaring flaw. This is a fantastic camera, it has the same APS-C sensor, processor, and auto focus system as the a6000 in a smaller package. You can accomplish some quite amazing photos and and is compact enough to have with you all day. I'm rating it 4 stars but it should really be 3.5 due to one major glaring flaw (would be 5 if this issue is fixed). For what ever reason Sony has decided to remove the function menu in this camera. The previous NEX-5T and pretty much ever other Sony camera, even the RX100 has a function menu. Several of the buttons are programmable including the "?" button yet there is no ability to make it pull up the function menu for quick access to your most used setting. This truly is a shame and cuts the camera off at the knees as it is otherwise extremely capable in M, A, or S mode. Without this function menu feature you are forced to menu dive to make changes to many of your favorite settings which is a huge chore. I am baffled why this feature is not in the camera and even more confused why it hasn't been fixed. Several reviews have mentioned this glaring omission and it should be easily resolved with a firmware update yet nothing has happened.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sony A5100 Unboxing feedback Sony team, Very surprised and disappointed that your base package has not included the camera body cap and the rear lens cap. My package came with base camera with 16 to 50 MM lens. The only cap that came was the outer lens cap. Any reason your team omitted these two basic cap? I also observed the Micro USB port charger cable is very short in length. This should have been a little longer to allow ease of connecting the charger with camera. Also the micro USB is very tight and takes effort to insert the company provided cable for charging. These are my first UNBOX feedback of this product. I am yet to try the camera. Shall provide another feedback once I have tested the camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing camera This camera takes great pictures - very clear and great definition. It does tons of things automatically. The pano feature works very well. When you take a group picture it also takes a portrait of the people it thinks are the main subject - you get both pictures with one click. It's so cool. Took it to Switzerland for vacation and got great pictures of the Matterhorn!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony A5100 "Did some research and found this to be an amazing camera ! Not only does it shoot good videos but the pictures are flawless. This in many way is almost the same as the a6000, the only thing is that the body is made of plastic... which is okay... but would prefer it to be made of metal. Overall, if youre a beginner or pro this camera is great in many aspects !"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Weight and Professional Quality I have always been a Nikon fan but Nikon has not done the small camera Mirrorless well. Sony, has always been the tops in making things small and this camera is no exception. It's a pleasure to carry around my neck for long time periods and the quality of the photos is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent upgrade camera from a cel phone. I Love this camera! The quality is outstanding and it is easy to use. I have used a point and shot camera for 30 years. This is an easy upgrade and being a mirrorless camera it is very small and portable. A very easy camera to take on your travels. This camera also has many high quality lenses and accessories that you can use on a upgrade camera. Has fun.
