YouTube reviewer Brittany Leigh "The SnapChick" has tested and reviewed a wide variety of photography gear. We’ve seen what she had to say about the impressive α7R IV, and now she’s back with a new video review of the Sony α6100. Using it with a combination of Sony lenses, the kit lens 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6, the 16-55mm f/2.8 G and the 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G, she got excellent results for photo and video. Read the highlights below to see why she thinks this is a great camera to have on hand, and watch the video for her complete review.
“I like it. It just works. It was easy to grab and to put into my bag. Having experience with Sony cameras, it was easy to use right away. And I got excellent results – photo and video.” – The Snapchick on the Sony α6100
“I appreciate what Sony’s auto focus system has evolved to,” says Leigh. “While technical skill and muscle memory with your camera, and getting yourself into the right place at the right time, plus a whole slew of other factors – are all paramount to getting lots of good shots. The, dare I say magical, real time auto focus tracking on the Sony cameras these days, the α6100 included, is really nice to have. It’s quick and accurate. It definitely allows me to get more usable shots.”
“And what I perhaps find even more handy is I’m able to concentrate more on composition in situations like this one where I was photographing a bird in flight. I can trust that the camera has my back, and as long as I’ve done my job properly with settings and I can keep my subject in the frame, the camera will track the subject.”
“I like it. It just works. It was easy to grab and to put into my bag. Having experience with Sony cameras, it was easy to use right away. And I got excellent results – photo and video. Plus, there were times that, because of the compact size of the camera and its APS-C lenses, I was able to bring a camera with me when I would not have grabbed something larger like my α7R IV and its associated full frame lenses. A camera in the hand is worth two on the shelf, am I right?”
