The Sony Alpha a5000 is capable of producing some great quality images which are packed with detail, are great at high sensitivities and have beautiful, warm colours. The kit lens is a decent performer, while the lens range for Sony E-mount cameras is good, and growing, so it’s a system you can buy into and grow with.
This camera’s small size is its headline feature, and Sony has done a good job of miniaturising to make a very small 20.1 MP Exmor APS HD APS-C CMOS Sensor camera. Although it’s not as small as the Panasonic GM1, the sensor size is also significantly larger, so that’s worth bearing in mind. The kit lens also retracts into itself, making the overall package small enough to fit in a large jacket pocket, and very neatly into a kit bag.
We feel that it’s a steal at $298 from www.bhphotovideo.com. It also includes a SanDisk 16GB Ultra UHS-I SDHC Memory Card (Class 10) and Ruggard STREAK 15 Shoulder Bag.

Merry Christmas everyone.
