For quite some time now I’ve been using a small mirrorless camera as my primary landscape, travel and video camera. What I wanted to know was simple – could a super small and light alternative to my professional gear give me near-professional results. I wrote an introduction to my camera choice in another article (called: going mirrorless) but now that I’ve had it a while I thought I’d do a follow up. This will be my Sony a5000 Long Term Review.
For my paying jobs the big gear still comes out but when I’m on a photo walk or hiking in the Shenandoah Mountains I really wanted something smaller and lighter. The primary camera I’ve been working with for the last six months has been a Sony a5000 Interchangeable Lens Camrea (ILC). In this article I’m going to share my thoughts on what it’s been like for me to work with the smaller camera.
