Whether you’re wading across the Amazon or fumbling through the crowded bazaars of Morocco as a wannabe globetrotter, this camera won’t be lugging on your shoulders while still giving you all the discreteness you need to tackle camera-shy folks. (And if you haven’t brandished your camera on the streets of Morocco, trust us, you don’t really know how it pays to be discreet; but that’s a topic for another time).
Size also becomes important for families, especially for the ones traveling with kids. Did we mention that at this price point this is the camera that will give you the best image quality of all out there?
(Pssst… If you’re willing to spend just a little more, look for the bigger brother X-T30 of this camera)
So, you’re a beginner and wish to get serious about photography, right? In that case, on the lowest end of the price spectrum, the small and light Sony a6000 will be an amazing camera for you. We’ve had friends who’ve dabbled with photography here and there using borrowed cameras and their smartphones that were nothing fancy, always feeling that a proper camera would be an overkill in this day and age. Now they’re loyal converts of this little monster camera.
This bestselling wonder camera also has the ability of to send photos directly to your phone. In other words, when you’re sitting across that Incan ruin in the Guatemalan jungle dreading your spotty Wi-Fi connection, your friends will still flush with envy as you trudge out those images on social media.
And remember, its size here is quite suitable even for children, and so that helps out when you're trying to distribute your loads during a long family vacation.
