A6000 closeup sample request

Recommended Posts


Could anyone send me a close up image taken on an A6000 with the  16 50mm kit lens? It would need to be of a penny or a postage stamp, or something I could easily take a comparison shot of.

I take close up photos of nature with a smartphone camera, and I would like to get better quality. A second hand A6000 or similar is all I can afford at the moment. 

I'm sure the A6000 will give better results but I want to be sure the difference is worth the cost.

The 16-50 kit lens is small, light, portable. In good light, it can deliver some nice pictures too. How will it compare with a phone camera? I suppose that very much depends on which phone camera!

Here's one thing the camera combo can do that the phone can't match: macro with a set of extension tubes. Get the ones with electrical contacts so that the camera can still control the lens. It will be a fantastic and low-cost add-on!
