LOOKING FOR A STARTER CAMERA?
Overall, I recommend using what you have first and upgrading once your gear is limiting you. The best camera is often the one you have available to you. But if you are looking to invest in a starter camera, I recommend the Sony a6000 or another camera in Sony’s crop sensor line, like the a6400 if you have the budget available to you. This camera is a great one for getting comfortable using Sony products. Unless you know what type of lens you want specifically, I recommend getting this camera with the kit lens (the lens that comes with it), and adding to your kit once you know your preferences.
OTHER PHOTOGRAPHY FAQ & RESOURCES:
- How did you get into photography?
- My interest in photography started in high school when I took an introduction to photography class. I used my dad’s old Nikon F1 camera and spent a lot of time doing black and white film photography. I departed from my photography passion in my early 20’s, which I spent traveling and working in outdoor education. I picked up a camera again in 2015 and began working as a professional photographer in 2016.
