Can we all just have a moment of silence for this beauty of a camera? I finally have a good working camera! Thanks to the boyfran, he got this for me as a birthday present with a little help from my friend Sam (@wamsu). It's so sweet when the people close to you support the things you want to do.
I received this camera in the mail this morning and was so excited when I realized what was in that box. I knew it was coming but I had no idea it was arriving this early. The decision process was a long one because I didn't want to make the wrong choice when buying such an expensive toy. For a while I kept going back and forth with the Canon Rebel T3i or the Sony Alpha a5100. After much research, the Sony won my heart because it was great for pictures AND video. What really sold me is the autofocus in video mode since the Canon DSLR needed manual focus and that was too much of a hassle. Watching other YouTuber's use this camera also helped me make the decision because it was all about the video quality.
A lot of people have this camera and I don't blame them. The quality of the photos and videos are amazing and it works similar in the ways of a DSLR and compact camera. It's literally the best of both worlds.
