This is a fantastic camera, it has the same APS-C sensor, processor, and auto focus system as the a6000 in a smaller package. You can accomplish some quite amazing photos and and is compact enough to have with you all day. I'm rating it 4 stars but it should really be 3.5 due to one major glaring flaw (would be 5 if this issue is fixed). For what ever reason Sony has decided to remove the function menu in this camera. The previous NEX-5T and pretty much ever other Sony camera, even the RX100 has a function menu. Several of the buttons are programmable including the "?" button yet there is no ability to make it pull up the function menu for quick access to your most used setting. This truly is a shame and cuts the camera off at the knees as it is otherwise extremely capable in M, A, or S mode. Without this function menu feature you are forced to menu dive to make changes to many of your favorite settings which is a huge chore. I am baffled why this feature is not in the camera and even more confused why it hasn't been fixed. Several reviews have mentioned this glaring omission and it should be easily resolved with a firmware update yet nothing has happened.

Sony team, Very surprised and disappointed that your base package has not included the camera body cap and the rear lens cap. My package came with base camera with 16 to 50 MM lens. The only cap that came was the outer lens cap. Any reason your team omitted these two basic cap? I also observed the Micro USB port charger cable is very short in length. This should have been a little longer to allow ease of connecting the charger with camera. Also the micro USB is very tight and takes effort to insert the company provided cable for charging. These are my first UNBOX feedback of this product. I am yet to try the camera. Shall provide another feedback once I have tested the camera.

Just WOW

By 

from Phoenix, AZ 85053, USA

Comments about Sony Alpha A5100 White DSLR Camera With 16-50mm Lens:

I upgraded from a tiny Sony Cybershot point and shoot camera. This guy blew me away. It's not that much of a hassle to carry around since it still fits in my purse, but it packs a punch of a dslr camera. The sensor is downright amazing and is 4 times bigger than my previous camera which makes a huge difference, especially in low light. I tested the a5100 in Asia in all sorts of conditions and it surpassed all my expectations even in auto mode. The flip screen is perfect for selfies and the color is true to reality. I haven't felt the need to use the flash yet since it performs so well in low light. Only minus is that my iphone does bettet in burst mode (not sure why) and there is no view finders so it's a little bit harder to see in bright light. Other than that this camera is my new best travel companion!

skeptical about moving to mirrorless cameras

By 

from Los Angeles, CA 90015, USA

Comments about Sony Alpha A5100 White DSLR Camera With 16-50mm Lens:

I was skeptical about moving to mirrorless cameras from a DSLR platform. But after using the A5100 for a little over a month now, i am now a believer that these tiny ILCs are able to hold its own in picture quality, performance, and build quality of the product....i came from an entry level DSLR (2nd to the cheapest nikon available 5 yrs ago) and moved over to this entry-level (which is pretty much also the 2nd cheapest sony mirrorless at this time), so its a good apples to apples comparison

GOOD Camera

Handy. Low light performance. Picture quality. Above 3 are the best features. Lack of viewfinder & hot shoe are shortcomings.

Best Ever Convinience Camera

By 

from 10457

Comments about Sony Alpha A5100 White DSLR Camera With 16-50mm Lens:

I own some pro cameras Dslr Nikon D and Canon for years, some point and shoot digital Convinience carry (small size) always have been lacking in my quality department, sometimes on my short getaway vacations of 5 or 4 days I seem to want to pack light including my camera equipment. Sometimes unwantingly leaving myself quality deprived, not anymore. With what I get now with my Sony is a very Big Bang for my small size travel companion, you can't get any better than this camera unless you go bigger and I have that with my other cameras which I use in a more setup environment with slave flash and umbrellas for photo shoots. For a get up and go situations I can count on a small camera to give me unparalleled results. Very happy in my decision to purchase a camera that can fill the size gap and Convinience of a small carry camera that packs a large punch!

Amazing camera

By 

from Sarasota, FL, USA

Comments about Sony Alpha A5100 White DSLR Camera With 16-50mm Lens:

This camera takes great pictures - very clear and great definition. It does tons of things automatically. The pano feature works very well. When you take a group picture it also takes a portrait of the people it thinks are the main subject - you get both pictures with one click. It's so cool. Took it to Switzerland for vacation and got great pictures of the Matterhorn!

Comments about Sony Alpha A5100 White DSLR Camera With 16-50mm Lens:

Some background about me. I'm serious about photography but don't always want to carry around a backpack full of gear. My approach with the a5100 was to replace my aps-c DSLR with it. I think I'm going to settle on still having a dslr (but a full frame one), keeping the a5100, and using them each about 50/50. The Sony a5100 is really awesome for a compact aps-c mirrorless camera. Most of the negative reviews come from the lack of an evf or physical controls. The a6000 has those, so if that's what you want, get the a6000. I prefer the a5100 because its just small enough to fit into a pocket with most of the lenses I have. I don't find switching settings too slow without the physical controls and the screen is pretty viewable in sunlight if you crank the brightness to sunlight mode (although admittedly an evf would be awesome if it stayed small). Anyways the dynamic range is amazing (although really only useful if you shoot raw and post process), and the high ISO noise is good compared to other aps-c cameras, although still far from the full frame competition. The only real downside to this camera is the lens selection/prices and the autofocus is awesome on slow moving subjects but isn't as good as a dslr when it comes to sports or fast action (I don't have kids, or shoot sports too often so this is fine by me but I'd imagine that's a lot of people's concern). For the lenses I have the 55-210mm, the 20mm pancake, the 35mm f/1.8, the 50mm f/1.8, and the kit 16-50mm. I really like prime lenses for the large aperture and the general image quality (plus Sony's image stabilization works like a charm). The 50mm f/1.8 is awesome. Great image quality at a good price. The others disappoint a little, and some of the ones I don't own and even worse that don't exist are a letdown too. The 35mm should cost a little less or be a little sharper, and I really wish there was a high quality prime in the 20-25mm (~35mm full frame equivalent) range that was essentially like the Zeiss 24mm but doesn't cost as much (I don't care if it drops the Zeiss name). Canon, Nikon, Fuji, and Olympus have this, but the $1,100 for the Zeiss is simply too much. That lens is nice but nowhere near good enough to justify the price. The main competitors charge half. It's also, unfortunately my favorite focal length, so instead I'm using the 20mm pancake, which is decent for a pancake, although I'd personally rather have a bigger lens that's sharper and with a wider aperture, and I'd pay up to $600 for it. Unfortunately too it seems Sony if focusing more on full frame lens development--not too many releases in the last year for aps-c, so my hope isn't likely to be fulfilled unless they do another price drop on the Zeiss. Also a faster standard zoom or telephoto would be great as well.

This camera is one of the best camera's I have purchased from Sony. Being I am more of an amateur photographer and just take family pictures and landscape pictures this camera allows me to take them like the pro's do. Very easy to use as compared to my older DSLR camera and much easier to switch out lens and take great shots. I would recommend this camera to everyone. Make a basic photo taker like a beginner pro!!
