    Hello people, Im thinking the possibility of one of these cameras in the medium term.

    I read that the A5100is slightly above the A6000 (but without viewfinder :cautious: ), I like read first opinions of real user in real world.

    Thanks. :2thumbs:

    I believe the difference is that the A5100 can use the newer XAVC-S codec for higher bitrates.

    Probably the biggest hurdle is that neither can conveniently use a mic in. There is an XLR hot shoe adapter but its very expensive.

    Thanks friends.

    Im surprised about the A5100 have interesting features like touchscreen and A6000 not. Somebody know about issue with flickering at A5100?

    Unfortunately Sony have never had a touchscreen and a viewfinder in one camera (unless you count the old nex cameras with touch screen with evf accessory). Not sure what you mean by flickering with the a5100.
