I've been looking for a decent compact camera and came across this deal.



Seems like a good price to me considering its nearer £300 elsewhere and some good reviews.

Only available in white at this price, the black is £299.

Here's the spec.

The Sony a5000 camera is the world's smallest & lightest interchangeable lens camera (as of 22/01/2014). Features include a large APS-C image sensor, BIONZ X processor for fast focusing, 3-inch 180-degree Tiltable Touch LCD, full HD movies, Wi-Fi connectivity to smartphones via NFC.

Uncover every detail

A large 20.1 effective megapixel Exmor® APS HD CMOS sensor captures more light for detailed images, rich in tone and colour.

Refine the details with BIONZ X

An ultra-fast processor enhances detail and reduces image noise to give images a more realistic feel.

Track fast-moving action with built-in autofocus

Shoot with precision and lock-on to your subject with ultra-fast autofocus for sharp, finely detailed results.

Shooting a selfie?

A tiltable LCD screen flips up to 180° so you can easily compose the shot and make sure all of your friends are in the frame.

Shoot and share with NFC and Wi-Fi

All it takes is one touch to wirelessly transfer photos and videos to an NFC-enabled smartphone, PC, or TV.

Light up the room

A built-in pop-up flash makes sure people and subjects are perfectly lit, and helps you to capture beautifully exposed shots.

Sensitive shooting

Wide-ranging ISO settings of 100 to 16000 ensure outstanding versatility and performance, from dawn till dusk

Get the settings right with Superior Auto

When there’s no time to prepare, the ILCE-5000 automatically adjusts the settings to suit any scene, for clear, low-noise images.

Shoot cinematic HD movies

Touch a button to record action-packed 60p Full HD movie clips, with beautiful, cinematic results.

Easy zooming, comfortable shooting

A built-in zoom lever is easy to operate single-handed, while a grip ensures your camera is stable and comfortable when shooting.

Make each shot your own

Press the photo creativity button to add picture effects and to control background defocus, brightness and image vividness.

Pro features, compact design

Take pro-quality shooting anywhere with a compact design that you can easily slip in your bag or coat pocket.

Compose like a pro with Auto Object Framing

The camera automatically readjusts the composition of your photo for a pro-style result, then saves it alongside the original shot.

Turn your smartphone into a remote

It’s easy to shoot remotely and control the zoom and focus settings with the free PlayMemories Mobile smartphone app.

Get creative with PlayMemories Camera Apps

Download apps and experiment with different photographic effects like time lapse or motion shot and develop your shooting style.

"I've been looking for a decent compact camera...". But it's not a compact camera!
#13
I have the nex5 and a 5d2 . The issue I have is the size is just a little too big to be compact, the sony is fab but for travel it's just a bit too big.

thanks op - ordered

Not really something I'd be interested in, not for the price is a solid deal. I'm seriously tempted to pick up an Olympus M10 - light, compact, viewfinder, shed load of compatible lenses. Just looking for the right deal

Great camera, but white ???

Must admit I am a bit Sony guy if we talk about house electronic. I bought this camera from argos @ £239 a while ago but ended up returning. The spec is great, finish is good as always from Sony, however I found few issues with the firmware and the lens quality in low light conditions quite disappointing tbh (and no chance I would pay current prices for a lens upgrade). In good light conditions, even my phone takes great pictures so I expected from apsc sensor and premium product more. Ultimately, I went for a completely different beast (Nikon coolpix a) and I am happy with it.Saying that, this is a decent buy @ £200, just do not expect too much and be aware its already few generations old.

I've come to the conclusion you're better of investing in the glass rather then the latest Gen body.

Unless there's a fundamental issue with the current body you have (AFS speed, low light sensor performance), you're best sticking with what you have or buying a few Gen's back. Because whilst the headline specs are great, the bang for buck with each iteration is minimal in real world use. Moreover, they depreciate rapidly.

Upgrading the Glass on the other hand (faster/clearer/longer/wider) really opens up a whole new world of options. Moreover, outside of the kit lenses it generally holds it value well, so you can gradually step up without taking too much of a hit.

I think is normal these days people found phone's camera better than the dslr because of their usage. DSLR sure can get better quality image but might not be the quality some people will expect. It all depends on the way you use it and the adjustment
afterwards.

Come on, I am not a kid. The thing is I have several decent lens and good enough A mount camera body already, i do not want to buy anymore lens, I do not want new mount. Especially that this was supposed to be my pocket camera, it's not a bad option, it just failed to impress me out of the box.

Just to be clear, I crave the latest body just like anyone else. And I find the cost of glass hard to swallow. Since you mentioned this was an older body, I was just sharing my own (slow) realisation that IMO its best to invest in the Glass and buy a body a few gens back.

I wasn't suggesting you're a kid. So not sure why you've taken offence at what I thought was a perfectly reasonable point.

Any one got the confirmation that it's in stock and will be delivered? Also in the order confirmation Jessops said they won't charge the Amex card until it comes in stock. My question is if stock becomes available after 31st, Amex £50 offer will expire or they will still honour it as the order was placed on 24th? Cheers

No
It's the date your card is charged. So I would look something else if you are not confident about this coming back in stock before offer expiry.
#28
back up to £299
#29
Does anyone know if Jessops are going to honour this. I bought it and then it went out of stock, when I track the order it says on back order.
#30
Your best bet is to contact them and let them confirm.
#31
Jessops just rang me. They will not honor the £200 advertised price, and will only despatch camera if you agree to pay £299
#32
I rang them earlier and was told that the order had been placed with the supplier and they were awaiting stock but they had no idea when it would be dispatched . Sounds like they've taken way too many orders and are trying to wriggle their way out .
#33
can they do that? My order is stating on back order too
#34
I thought they would have contacted everyone with the same story. I told them I wasn't prepared to pay £299 when it had been advertised at £200 and expected them to honor the contract. Their view was the order is on hold until I agree to pay extra or cancel. Think its a grey area as to whether they can do this as according to T's and C's a contract is only in place once order is dispatched.
#35
I telephoned today and was advised if I pay an extra 100 then they will dispatch otherwise my order will be cancelled. So much for none in stock!
#36
Same experience as above. Told them to cancel.
