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.

Using speed and a certain amount discretion, candid shots are quite possible.  Having a smaller, quiet camera that has good AF can make or break the shot.  An RX100 cupped in a palm can do amazing things.
