I have only just sold this camera with the lens I used.

There was nothing wrong with the camera but as we get older and arthritis gets a hold it becomes harder to carry it all with you.

The camera itself produced many good shots out of it.

And when it came to the point that I had a fall and I broke my big lens I was down to the lens that had not too far of a reach.

 

The Sony was hard to get here in Australia and with all the searches I done worked out that I had to but it from America.

And when it came I was so happy but now I am slowed right down and it make it hard to carry al lens for that just right time.

Made it hard to justify for me anyway having it.

 

But if I was about to take up this hobby I would look for one that has what the Sony did.

When I started I got the A390 and followed by the A77 then this camera.

Each one you had to go through a refresher course to understand it.

And now I have got a Nikon and that will soon be 2 Nikons.

The way I have looked at it was it made me rethink what I was doing.

If I was going to try to sell photos then the Sony would as I see it a must keep camera as it had a far better sensor size.

But as for being handy to not even have to think as you walk out the door and and know the camera is all you need.

So it has been an eye opener and I will never bad mouth these bridge camera's ever again.

As I know I did when we went on a cruise and our friends had the P900 each.

So I like them and work to their best is for you to work out and then stick with it.
