I just got a Samsung NX3000 with 16-50 lens with stabilization. Nice small non mirror camera. I ordered the 50-300 lens and due to the small body size the balance was off.
I tried different hand holds and still not comfortable. Sent the lens back. The camera has all the features: P, A, S, M, AUTO, WiFi, and video.
This is a lesser $$ camera; and at the time there was a $80.00 rebate with a Amazon card.
These are comments for those that might be comparing brands and models.

Every time I see a gorgeous wildlife photo, whether its birds, bears, etc, it seems to be taken with a 400mm and larger lens. Its just too much equipment for me to lug around and those lenses are very expensive. Sony offers an adapter to allow fitting their A mount lenses to E mount bodies but that is beyond my desire and finances.

Well I went ahead and bought the Sony A 6000 bundle. It came with two lenses, battery card, bag. All total it came to 776 which I thought was a good price. Now I just got to learn how to use it to its full potential.

Lots of youTube videos. Some professional photographers have switched from DLSR to this camera.

I like my mirror less camera to carry but not so much for wildlife. There I would want a slr with a fast release and auto focus time. I have had elk walk off while the camera was working and whales become swirls in the water closing over them. You need to look at a quality slr.

Hi,

I am a professional nature and wildlife photographer and lead photo workshop all over the world. I teach a couple hundred people a year and have been doing so for more than 10 years. I am also host of one of the most popular photography podcasts. Just saying this to establish a bit of credibility.

Right now, the best bang for your buck in terms of image quality is the Sony a6000. This is a small interchangeable lens mirrorless camera with amazing image quality in a very small package. The lens mount is the same as on the image quality leader the A7R Ii. So if you decide to step up your game you can preserve your lens investment. This camera has a great autofocus system and shoots 10 frames per second. The image quality is amazing, surpassing most DSLRs, even those costing $3000.

You can pick up an a6000 with a decent kit lens for about $500.

The new generation of the a6000, the a6300 will be released on March 10, and this camera will offer a performance leading autofocus system, and improved image quality. Pricing will be about $1,100.

After being a Canon shooter for close to 20 years, I am now shooting with Sony cameras because of the vastly superior image quality. My two cameras of choice are the Sony A7R II and the a6000, and I have a pre-order for the a63000.

Hope this helps.

-J

Nikon D5300

I too am just a beginner in photography. I purchased a Nikon D5300 a few months ago and am taking classes at my local community college to learn how to get the most from it. If you want to shoot nature close up (or at least closer), you need to upgrade and add a telephoto one. The one I purchased costs almost as much as the camera! But I really like my set up and am looking forward to picking up first our Airstream this Friday at the dealership and getting up close an personal with nature this year! Its starts with a quick stay this weekend in New Jersey to test out our unit! So excited!!!

You know, I've been playing photography for ... a long, long time now, and I still love it -- and loving my new K50 even more! But I still love to learn, and half of that is reviewing stuff that I already know. Or, better still, knew. My old neuron tends to forget stuff all too quickly!

So to that end, I subscribe to the "Digital Photography School" on Facebook and save pages with info that I'm new to or (as usual) very rusty on! Here's one of the pages from their website:

As a photographer who has worked all over the world at one point or another. I can tell you the very best camera you can have is the one that's in your pocket or backpack. Many spend crazy amounts of $$ on gear and then leave it sitting in their closet. It won't do you much good if you don't have it with you.

So get a rig that you can learn to use properly and go and have some fun......

Cheers
Doug

I recently purchased the Sony A6000 with kit lens. One of which is the E 55-210. As we are going to Alaska at the end of the month I was thinking of buying the Sony FE 70-200 and use that in Alaska instead of the 55-210. Any thoughts on this lens or other lenses for the A6000 would be greatly appreciated.

I suggest taking the one with the largest aperture for low light and a faster shutter speed when in bright light. If one is a maximum F 4.5 and the other is a F 2.8 the F 2.8 would be my choice.
