Budget: Sony A5100
The Sony A5100 came out way back in 2014. But don’t let that fool you. This camera is a great power hitter in a small package and it won’t break the bank. It’s lightweight, compact but with advanced features. The image quality is through the roof, especially for a camera at this price.
Sony is well known throughout the photographic world for their remarkable mirrorless camera systems. The A5100 boasts a 24-Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and Bionz image processor. The Auto Focus system is a hybrid with 25 contrast-detect and 179 phase-detect points.
It has subject-tracking and 6fps continuous shooting. This ensures you never miss that shot. The LCD screen tilts, and comes with 921,600 dots of resolution. On top of all this, the A5100 has WiFi with NFC capability. It is a beast of a camera.
The only downside is that Sony lenses are expensive.
