No, he's the guy YOU used. Not me. Try not to be disinjenuous. He goes back and forth on it constantly, and he hardly aims for high production quality does he... Also you're creating a false link between a Sony camera and a view count, people aren't watching for the crappy Sony image.
Kasey built his entire YouTube career on the Sony X3000. He says so all the time. And on his camera channel he regularly says vloggers don't need expensive cameras, and should stick to using action cameras. And he's the guy you're using as an example to backup your "action cameras are trash for vlogging" argument? (lol)
Kasey - the first one you linked - doesn’t just use an action camera at all. He has a whole camera channel. He crapped all over action cameras in the past. He likes the X3000 for its simplicity sure, but uses external audio and self admits the image is average. I don’t know the others. You understand you finding some instances of people using action cameras isn’t proof of anything right? Shall I find some instances of people not using action cameras?
Action cameras are trash for YouTube vlogging? Kasey (Veg Police) got 20 million views while using a Sony X3000 Dale Philip has got 50 million views with a GoPro Harald Baldr got 270 million views with a GoPro and Sony X3000 Benjamin Rich got 400 million views with just a Sony X3000 And Tom Scott uses GoPros all the time for his educational videos. 900 million views. These are just a handful of examples. And whenever the big tech review websites do their "best vlogging camera" articles they always include several action cameras in the list. But you're the expert, obviously. And all these people don't know what the hell they're doing! (y)
That was expensive, these are often £349 on Amazon.
Amazing camera, bought mine 4 years ago and still today I'm amazed at the impressive quality of the photos. I can't see myself replacing it anytime soon (tempted by the bigger zoom and 4k recorder of the newer models, but too expensive at the moment). However if someone is interested, this is not a good deal. I paid £400 for it 4 years ago with a Sony cashback deal (£150 cashback) so I paid £250 for it. Wait until another similar sale comes up. If anyone if thinking of the add ons in this offer......you should know that the grip is COMPULSORY (still can't believe the newer models doesn't have it by default), and annoyingly the case in this deal....it looks great, but it won't fit the camera with the grip attached, so pretty useless! Skip this deal, there's always better ones every now and again
What’s up with the pricing on these? I paid £425 (albeit without the case) 5 years ago. (confused)
It has a pop up evf. It is too expensive so e though they go regularly for around £350 or so and can be bought used for peanuts.
It's my understanding that the case will not fit on if the grip is attached (confused)
Which one s21 or iPhone 12 do you think takes better picture compared to Sony vi? Can you give comparison of three?
Didnt actually realise compacts hit this price range! I want to upgrade my Canon 550d Dslr but haven't kept up with cameras for a long time. Can anyone recommend any? I was looking at Canon 90d (though don't have to stick with Canon).
RX100 range are amazing cameras, will fit in your pocket and take great photos. I used to buy expensive phones but I was like why, why do I keep spending a fortune on phones then worrying about dropping them etc. Why not buy a £600 camera and a £150 phone? So I did. The normal camera is fine for most photos, really the expensive cameras on phones are only good for low light because on a bright day even a cheapo phone takes good pics. I take this on holiday and I wear it around my neck on a strap, you don't see it and it doesn't interfere with my activities, but it takes amazing video and photos. I have my DSLR kit as well but depending on activities you just want to snap a few pics to show where you went rather than some super artistic 50,000 megapixel thing. Now when I upgrade my phone it costs me only £150 again for whatever the latest bargain budget phone costs. Currently on an Samsung M30S, good battery, oled screen. Previously was a G7 power. Both super budget! The g7 power I dropped and the screen broke, oh no, I bought a new screen for £20 from aliexpress and fitted it myself with a heat gun.
The best camera in the world is no use to you if you don’t have it with you. I only use cameras if I’m going out specifically to take photos. If I’m just being a tourist then I don’t want a pendulous lump hanging off a strap to worry about, but a good phone camera is always there for that unexpected opportunity.
I own this and an iPhone 12 Pro Max - printing photos from the iPhone is always disappointing whereas the prints from the RX blow me away each time. As handy as the phone is I have to always carry the wee Sony.

Not really, you'd be better with something like this Samyang AF 85mm f/1.4 FE Lens Sony E | Park Cameras SAMYANG AF 85mm 1.4 for Sony FE | Flickr The Tamron 28-75 would be ok as it is f2.8 at 75mm, but the other lenses would not be so good as they are unable blur the background so much.

Will this be okay for portrait pics also

I use high res mode on my phone and its not bad really. So I imagine a phone that costs 4x as much must deliver some impressive results. I really want the Olympus 40-150 pro as that's apparently very sharp and a focal length range I often use. Probably more than an iPhone maybe but for some reason I prefer wasting money on cameras than phones :D
Yeah it is hard and a never ending money pit lol ! I was a chronic pixel peeper …. Small pocket cameras…. 1” sensors…. APS-C ….. Full Frame … Then back down to Micro Four Thirds which I think is a good compromise. I have a 2020 iPad Pro which I’ve taken some lovely pictures with ( as long as you don’t pixel peep ) this gives me hope that the next iPhone may meet my standards as a walk about. Edit to say it will def be the price of a lens but I currently have a hand me down iPhone 6 and the 13 will probably be used mainly for things other than a phone lol !
I can't help myself :D I suppose I do it to see if my technique was good. Most things look sharp on the phone. Don't know why but over processing just bugs me even if the result is a bright and colourful image. The iPhone does look good although it's probably the price of a nice lens.
I learned many years ago not to pixel peep and I’m much happier in my photography for it :-)
A7c is out with nearly all the specs of A7iii in a smaller body A7Riv, A9, and A1 are out for higher end Sony doesn't sell the A7ii anymore (discoed/eol) So you tell me, what's Sony left with at the entry level? A7iii Ignore me at your own peril and spend too much, I don't care
Nonsense or wishful thinking?
Doubt it. The lower models exist to bump up the price of the newer ones.
"physical limits of Sony's E-Mount (designed for APS-C image circles) are showing" Sony's latest lens releases beg to differ, the FE 50mm F1.2 , 24mm F1.4, 20mm F1.8, 35mm F1.4 are all best in class for, sharpness, weight/size, focus speed and price. Their latest lens releases really are knocking it out the park.
Hopefully. I just want something a bit better for auto focus. I don't care to much that the d7200 is technically better for some aspects. I'm just tried of missing over half my shots from clunky auto focus. I say clunky with the greatest respect because I'm most after fast moving targets. It handles anything from medium to slow really well. Although I have just been offered a nearly new A7Riv for £1800 or a well used 150,000 shutter count A7riii for £1000, so now I'm super confused. I just know I will need to sell my glass (Not that I have a lot, Just a few 1.8 primes, sigma 24-70 2.8 and a FX 70-300mm (Fav ever lens for the price)) and then spend 2/3k getting a couple of lenses for the Sony, which is putting me off. I'm in the process of looking for a house. So the z50 seemed like a good very short term fix. Although I didn't factor in the cost of the ftz adapter. I honestly thought they were like £120, got a shock when I saw they are £220
If you don't already have any Sony lenses then the Nikon Z6II is worth a look. The Sony A7iii with the 24-70 f4 lens is £2050 (with cashback) whereas the Nikon Z6 II with the 24-70 S f4 is only £89 more at £2139. Can't vouch for the Sony 24-70 f4 lens, but the Nikon 24-70S is superb as is the Z 50mm S f1.8.
The Z50 is a good value choice just a shame there is no IBIS.
It's best to stick to things that work for you.
Right I might have just done something silly 😝 so I can’t afford the swap to Sony yet, as I have 0 glass and would need a few thousand ££ to swap my glass. So I found a nearly new Z50 on eBay for £445 and bought it. I’m currently on a d7200. Weirdly I like crop sensors for the extra equivalent length. But I was getting fed up with the 3D tracking being a bit slow on the 7200 and missing quite a bit. I saw the Z50 got the same update for animal tracking and animal eye AF, as the newer Z6ii and Z7ii. I might regret this but I though at the £445 price I have nothing to loose. This could be a perfect stop gap until I can afford the swap to a A7R. I want the R so I have the option to shoot in apsc and still have an 18mp image. I find the extra range invaluable and can’t afford £4000k plus glass to get the extra length of a full frame. So to have the option to saw to a better full frame picture and the apsc when I need the 1.5x conversion is perfect.

Thanks for sharing, @johnvale - expired now, but good first deal :)
I'll put their reply on here if I get one. Pity I missed this. Been out of photography for too many years and .... there is a lot of catching up to do even to get a few likely candidates and this was the only one I've picked up on. Just want good Image Quality for still life with strobe lighting.
I agree with you. I really doubt they would be selling returns as new. Always thought it went back to manufacturer. The new box had a 3D hologram seal on it so fully tamperproof. My return was to Wex I had only just opened the box and seen it and not even tried it. Feels bad to have to return but I took the advise from a friend and upgraded to the R3. There’s a total £300 I’ll get back on just the lens (going for the 24-105mm) as there’s a £100 reward and £200 cash back.
Only a few hours ago I emailed them asking what they did with returns as I couldn't see "open box" sales. I was eyeing up this exact camera and the 90mm Macro esp with todays drop and cashback. Really dislike the sale of returns as new items, esp at this price point. Did phone them but no answer.

The price is not that different in other places plus as you said, JL comes with a 2-year warranty. I bought A7iii few days back from JL. I was in the same situation as you and choose to pay bit extra and get it from JL.
Yeah, when I looked earlier in the week, I nearly missed to spot it. Waiting now to see if they announce their new models before getting one. They've just discontinued the 6300 and 6500 so hopefully we'll hear something soon.
Really? Is it written somewhere there? Edit: just noticed the link opens up with price includes cashback statement. But for me, as the page loads - that sentence disappears (:I
That price (£1049) includes cashback.
This any helpful? £1049 and you can claim £150 cashback from Sony as per the site, making it £899. Comes with a warranty too maybe not 2 years as JL - worth checking with them. Edit: not true about the cashback.

That’s what my head says. The replacement A6XXX primarily offer video upgrades, and big upgrades they are. But I never use my A6000 for video, so there is no reason at all for me to spend twice the price for one.
I know I’m late but with a good lens you’ll find it hard to get better images than this for under £1000
I was genuinely hoping there might be a better sub £500 mirrorless camera with interchangeable able lenses that I just didn’t know about But I guess that camera remains a mythical unicorn despite their assurance that there are far superior cameras out there. I suppose the OP was right in a way, there are better cameras on the market, but you have to pay one heck of a lot more to get a noticeably better image for stills.
Surprise, suprise, no response (lol)
The body only is just £359 new at Bristol Cameras. Unless your primary focus is video there’s no compelling reason at all to spend twice the price plus in the newer A6000 models. And you’re right, the kit lens is fine for most people, especially as a starting pojnt

Sony RX100 VII Camera 1.0-Type Sensor 24-200 mm F2.8-4.5 Zeiss Lens - £849 @ Park Cameras£849£1,04919% off Free P&P FreePark Cameras Deals
I agree but for me a camera also has to offer reasonable for money which to me this camera doesn't.
But you aren't going to find an APS-C sensor in a camera that price that's equally pocket sized, and has a zoom or interchangeable lenses, so it's a question of trade offs.
Oooh I'm tempted! I've still got my RX100 M2 which is a brilliant camera. Bought it for £200 in 2018.
Got it in PC World. It was discounted, then had a further 50% off. Lucky

Media City <3 looks good
Thanks OP managed to get one before price went back up (y) 🏼
@Paul_93R I agree it’s now overpriced. I think I paid about £400 for the RX100ii. Even then I thought it expensive but then it had fewer competitors, and phones had a long way to close the gap. Would I choose an RX again for the purpose I got this... now probably not.
There is a place for the rx100 but I don't see the point of this one at this money. Its almost high end smartphone money and doesn't really do much they can't. You gain a bit of reach with this but the aperture gets a bump too. You can get cheaper compacts with either lower aperture or longer zoom. You can get a fixed lens micro four thirds for less. If I was buying an rx I'd definitely get an older model myself. It's a good camera but just a bit steep for me.

SONY a7 C Mirrorless Camera Silver, Body Only - Opened never used - £1,445.38 with voucher at ebay currys_clearance£1,445.38£1,495.383% off Free P&P FreeeBay Deals
Weirdly enough I was on the verge of buying the a7iii and then this comes out. Now I’m at two minds, the a7C reviews have been terrible. A7iii has a nice grip, two card slots, universally loved, but it’s over 3 years old. A7c has that awkward body that resembles a6300/6400 but is a newer camera. How good is the a7C video autofocus? The a7iii is also supposed to have great video autofocus but no real time eye autofocus.
I got one, definitely not rubbish. The improvements to AF make it worth it alone.
No warranty. Simple
Can you tell me why grey imports are looked down upon?
People who realise what a tiny rubbish camera it is and order a A7III instead.
each to their own, question was about cheaper option, not about moral choices.
Cheaper yes... UK stock no. So for the same price I'd rather not buy grey and support a tax-paying UK company :)
No, it's UK stock - I personally won't support grey imports. I actually like supporting UK businesses who pay tax and employ people! This one being relatively local and having physical stores is a bonus as well as I can actually see the gear before buying it. (Well... under normal circumstances without a pandemic anyway!)
Thanks for sharing the link, Yes it's cheaper. But comes with 1 Year warranty (I guess they sell imports) as opposed to the average 2 Years UK Warranty which kills the deal. As Wilkinson is £10 more (after cashback) then E-Infinity one but comes with 2 + 2 years warranty.
https://www.e-infin.com/uk/item/3555/sony_alpha_a7_iii_mirrorless_digital_camera_(body_only) I bought most of my lenses and cameras from them ah nevermind, price will be rougly the same with current cashback, but without cashback, my shop is much cheaper.

Any apsc with decent mp size and not too old or m4/3 ( i prefer at least apsc) with sharp enough prime lens ( old lens will be fine), at least 2 flashes ( manual doesnt really matter with decen gn number), 1 main tripod and small tripod for flashes, prefer with wireless flash triger, any light modifier such diffuser, cpl filter, any light bouncer and bacground, that would do, just need a good setup. Some editing after that ofcuz. In the end, depend on the budget and what the product are
Wouldnt a phone camera be fine for that?
What camera would anyone here recommend for a product shots? I sell on ebay and amazon and struggling to find a good camera recommendation
Good deal. Would completely recommend making sure you're okay with the ergonomics of the A6xxx cameras. They're highly divisive

I've read somewhere Amazon were caught selling imported cameras so Sony took them off there approved vendors for cashback hence they are doing there own.
Yeah maybe, but also prob more sales for Sony from Amazon so would have worked both ways. I used to buy all my Sony camera gear from Amazon for the Sony cashback deals so it’s a shame they aren’t on the list anymore
Sounds like Amazon normally take a bigger slice of the cake when selling than other sellers do, cashback would just drop price too low

I find phones, although not owned a flagship for a few years but watched many videos, better for close up and low light but miles away for landscapes or when you zoom in. You need optical zoom and phones tend to over sharpen and lose detail for distant objects. This seems to be the case even with the latest iPhones. It's a bit unfair to compare this to a flagship phone at any rate considering the price difference. This is certainly better than a £230 phone for photography.
It's all covid prices. Everything is the same. Stuff I paid £300 for last year is nearer £350 now. But I don't think this is bad for £230. Depends how much you want one. Could wait 2 or 3 months to save £30 but if you need one now you need one now.
I highly doubt this is "way better" than a modern flagship phone. I have a Canon G7X ii and while it's great, often I find stuff on the iPhone 12, for example, is better is certain conditions.
I think its just a matter of waiting for the right price if you can, I picked up the TZ100 for little over £200 with Panasonic cashback over a year ago, a nice camera but looking at the price now I most certainly would not buy, of course we all will pay what we will pay for any given product. Like I said earlier the mark 3 was on sale for just a little more than this a couple of months ago and I have seen this in John Lewis for £199
