Say hello to Sonya, the Sony Alpha 6000 mirrorless digital camera. I just ordered her and she’ll arrive next week. This is my next, my first camera upgrade away from the bulkier, heavier, older DSLR’s. There are at least six advantages to mirrorless over DSLR:
- Faster shooting speed
- Better video quality (4k vs 1080HD)
- Image stabilization
- Faster auto focus speed
- Electric viewfinders
- Smaller size
Included is a 16-50mm lens for portraits and street photography images. And then there is the 55-210mm lenses good for landscape and travel.
This means of course that my darling Nadia, the Nikon D90 DSLR will be going away to a good home soon. She’s up for sale now. But enough about the past, I am looking to the future of photography and the Sony is it.
