I love this camera. I got it on January 09, 2015. I immediately noticed how fast it drained the battery. It was even draining the battery overnight with the camera turned off, so I ordered 2 additional batteries and a charger. And I got in the habit of taking out the battery when I wasn't using the camera. I'm an engineer so I immediately started looking online for a remedy in various forums and conducting experiments to find out what was draining the battery so fast. After a lot of digging with no solution, I was going through all the menus one day and stumbled across Airplane Mode???Sony a6000 battery drain mystery solved!!! Turn Airplane Mode On! The a6000 supports Wi-Fi transfer of photos and videos to SmartPhones, Computers and other Wi-Fi devices. The default setting is Airplane Mode Off which drains the battery even with the camera off because it is always looking for nearby Wi-Fi devices. The solution is to turn Wi-Fi Off by turning Airplane Mode On. Only turn Airplane Mode Off when you want to send photos/videos to another Wi-Fi device. Then turn Airplane Mode On again as soon as you have finished sending. Problem solved.

I'm an enthusiast and like many current SONY users I'm a convert: I used various Canon gear since the original Rebel came out. I had thousands of dollars invested in lenses. The first two rebels were great cameras. Then I started to grow disappointed with each next Canon camera. 40D was awful. The 7D was better but still I was not happy and I could not afford a better body such as 5D. Also, I mainly shoot while hiking and I grew tired of hauling the mass of gear. After not shooting for over a year I figured it's time to change something.I also used Canon point and shoot cameras and, again, I was terribly disappointed with the quality and reliability. S95 died with the dreaded "lens error". S100, also died in less than two years. So I started reading and discovered the SONY RX100II. It blew me away! In decent light I could not tell the difference between the RX100II and Canon 7D shots! So I started digging deeper since I never considered SONY cameras before and it came to a very hard choice between the a6000 and the A7.After studying very RAW file I could find on the internet for weeks I decided the slight difference in image quality was not worth 3x the price of the A7 for me.I bough the a6000 with the E PZ 18-105mm F4 G OSS. After the first shoot my jaw dropped. I could not believe it! This tiny $550 body and an $800 lens totally blew away the Canon 7D that costs three times as much. Anything from sharpness and color to speed of focus just wipes the floor with the 7D!So I sold all my Canon gear and bough another a6000 body and the FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS lens. I also bought the Rokinon 12mm F2.0 NCS CS lens and two sets of Vivitar chargers and batteries and AGFA filters. Both bodies, three lenses, 6 batteries, filters, etc fit in a small personal carry-on bag along with Macbook Air, iPad and lots of smaller items! I can carry both bodies on my shoulder and they're lighter and less bulky than one 7D with a tele lens! Sure these are some compromises as I don't have 400mm zoom or 2.8 speed but the kit produces stunning images that I am totally happy with at a fraction of the bulk. My entire photo gear in a small handbag!!!Just like the RX100II, the a6000 is an amazing marvel of modern technology that puts Nikon and Canon to shame. My hat's off to SONY for this achievement. I won't dive into specs. But yes, what people say about the quality, speed and features of this camera is all true. This is not hype. I didn't believe at first. This thing reinvigorated my interest in photography to the point that I took short vacation to go shooting in Death Valley.I can't find really anything wrong with this thing. Sure, it's not perfect, there are little annoyances such as the infamous video button but this is all overshadowed by the technological brilliance and stunning image quality that rivals midrange DSLRs.Speaking of video: with the G lenses this camera is a blast to use for video and produces gorgeous full HD at 60fps. I'm just not much into video.One significant drawback of the incredible set of features is high power draw. This thing goes through batteries quickly. Get the Vivitar or Wasabi kit with external charger and two extra batteries. I figure around 250 shots per battery and I'm not even using power zoom.And yeah, the unfortunate decision not to include a dedicated charger is just stupid. Come on SONY. In camera charging is not acceptable.In case you haven't figured this out yet: I really like this camera and the two SONY lenses!

This camera is nearly perfect. Ease of use and features are the best I ever had. Blows away my previous sony A57, and is better than the sony RX 100 MIII used at my job. Paired with a Sony SELP18105G E PZ 18-105mm F4 G OSS it is a versatile beast of a camera for photo and video. If you don't know anything about photography just set it to Intelligent Auto and it will still take fantastic pictures. Since pictures are the best proof, see the following customer images I uploaded: pond, sunset, popcorn, popcorn cropped and tubing. Anyone can take pictures like these with this camera.
