Sony has been an industry leader in the development of mirrorless (or compact system) cameras in recent years, but while their top-level cameras may be a bit out of the price range for those starting out or hobbyists, the Sony A6000 has provided many with an excellent entry point into the mirrorless arena.
The A6000 has a 24.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, with a very capable screen and electronic viewfinder. It can perform as a sporting and activity camera, with a burst mode capable of firing off 11 frames every second. Of course, as an enthusiast-level camera, it's not entirely surprising that it doesn't have 4K video capabilities, but nevertheless you're getting a very decent bang for your buck.
And now Amazon has decided to slash the amount of those bucks you need to shell out quite dramatically in its Deal of the Day (valid until midnight tonight GMT). You can now get the A6000 for only £349, and once you add Sony's £100 cashback to it, which you can claim for this model, the price is only £249. That's the best price we've ever seen the A6000 going for, so if you're looking to get onto the mirrorless ladder before Christmas, this is a deal you should be considering very seriously.
