Getting a feel for the Sony A6000

The Sony A6000 is a remarkable little camera.

I needed several weeks to get a feel for shooting with the A6000. I had memorized the layout of my Canon’s menus and could access vital settings—pardon the pun—in a flash. But taking pictures finally feels natural again.

And the more I shoot, the more I know I made a good decision ditching my DSLR.

During the past month, I have taken the A6000 on a brewery tour, to an art museum, and to the State Farmers Market in Raleigh. These are places I could have taken my bulky DSLR but never did. I’m taking more pictures, and I’m taking them in new environments—that’s exciting.

    1. I used the kit lens (16–50mm/f3.5)—but I understand what you’re going through with soft pictures.

      The 16-50 doesn’t have a great reputation. There are times the pictures I get are tack sharp. But more often than not, images have slight softness to them. Just enough that makes you wonder if something is wrong with the lens, your eyes, or both.
