If you want to upgrade from smartphone photography without breaking the bank, the Sony NEX-5TL is a great entry level mirrorless camera that’s packed with great features like 10 FPS shooting, phase detection hybrid autofocus, Wi-Fi, and a DSLR quality APS-C sensor.
Today on Amazon, $409 gets you the camera, a kit lens, three different-colored body jackets, a carrying case, a screen protector, and an OLED viewfinder. That’s $59 more than the camera and lens go for by themselves, but a steal when you consider that the viewfinder goes for over $200 by itself. Of course, you can operate the camera using its main screen, but the viewfinder will allow you to hold it much steadier (since it’s braced against your face), and makes it much easier to frame your shots in direct sunlight.
