A6000 vs A5000 for entry to video
I've been going through a lot of your posts and tips which are really useful - thank you.
I'm looking to buying my first DSLR to make travel videos similar to the work that Matt Komo and Sam Kolder create. I've been researching several cameras and have arrived at a bit of a crossroads between the Sony A6000 and the A5000. The big differentiator is the cost, the a5000 I can purchase with a kit lens for £350 and the A6000 with kit lens is £550. I could afford the a6000 but really unsure if it justifies the additional £200.
I like the sonys because of its compact form / weight and full 1080p at 60fps. The video quality also looks good from what ive seen on both. I'm pretty familiar with DSLRs and frequently use a Canon 6D in work.
Just curious if anyone has used these two cameras and if they can offer any advice / opinions would be really appreciated :)
