Bit of an old camera, but a pretty reasonable deal for someone after a budget full frame camera.

Will the camera come attached to the lens?
Not bad for someone looking to move to fullframe.
I have both of these and its good though I got the 50mm for £145 from amazon last month and got the sony + kit lens for £509 after cashback in last christmas

Dunno, but probably not?
My son's looking to do travel vlogs/youtube, what's a good camera for that, I realise this is overkill .. any suggestions, I reckon you guys might be a good crowd to ask.

Cheers.

They will be separate retail packaging I believe.

So you'll get a box containing the camera body.
One with the 50mm lens.
A7ii is 929 (629 after 300 cash back) which is arguably a better camera and will hold its value better than the A7 in the next 2-3 years.

albeit with no lens

but you can pick up the 50mm Sony FE for about 150 or the 28-70mm for about the same (cheaper if you buy on ebay)

Go for something like the Sony RX100 MK3 or 4.
Top travel vloggers Vagabrothers recommend this camera (but Mk6) as a good starting camera with flip up screen, good at nighttime and image stabilisation.

Canon EOS-M50 would be an excellent choice
Cheers guys,

Will I need to get separate lenses or will it have something simple to start off with?

Yes it will be me splashing but still want to keep costs at a minimum so that we can actually invest into good gear when it's appropriate, right now it's all early days.

Don't get drowned in specs, if it's for travel blogs it's vital it's compact. Otherwise the camera won't always be with him.

RX100 mk3 or later is a good suggestion for sure. The G7Xii is also very good/similar - I actually preferred it to the RX100 mk3 having owned both, although I didn't use either for videos.

If audio is important to him (e.g. he wants to record himself walking along talking), make sure the camera has a mic input. Many don't.

Checklist;
- Flip screen
- Compact
- 3/4 inch screw (most have this in the bottom, allows you to attach extensions and tripods)
- Decent sensor size (one of; 1 inch, micro 4/3rds or APS-C, if it's likely to be used in the dark. If not then you may get away with a smaller sensor but you're moving in to smartphone territory there)
- Image stabilisation (a must for video footage)
- Mic input
Really good price for FF.
Very decent camera too, poor AF though.

Great price for miles better AF and in-built stabilization for legacy lenses... I'd pay the extra.

Still worth £100 more (albeit without the lens) than the A7 I reckon.

about 40-50% more is fair whack so would hope so

I wouldn't get an A7 with the useless AF it shares with an A6000 tbh. Just no point getting on the FF bandwagon with a camera with such a limiting factor.

Small business startups, lots to consider, the camera is a start but editing the film is another, sometimes overlooked element.
