Re: Street and Casual photography: A6000 or A7

If you are trying to be a stealth photographer you may want to give up on street photography with a camera. Even a camera the size of the A6000 is obvious. A phone is obvious unless you are attempting to hide it. People are aware of cameras and phones. They know what that lens looks like and understand why it is pointed at them. The reality is most folk do not care. Face it, most people use camera phones and are very aware of a lens pointing in their direction.

As for a camera purchase do you want a FF larger camera or a smaller camera. From my point of view the term FF and small do not go together. The A7 is more of a landscape tool . The A6000 seems much more suited to action including street shooting. Just do not let them see you!

a7 - 5.0 x 3.7 x 1.9" Lens kit 2.85 x 3.27" - 5"x3.7"x5.2" camera with kit lens

A6000 - 4.7 x 2.6 x 1.8" Lens kit Approx. 2.63 x 1.19" - 4.7"x2.6"x3" camera with kit lens

The A7 is quite a bit larger and the lens is a key factor bringing both length and depth over 5".

I hear you can get the ultimate street medium format camera for $6000!
