I have a nephew that I "converted" from smartphones to "real" cameras by gifting a Sony A3000

That was a risky proposition ... I'd bet the A3000 would more likely turn someone off from "real" cameras ! Glad he took to it, though.

It's a muscle car camera. Stripped down body, great sensor (engine).

Sound about right. And I don't think Sony used that 20MP sensor in many camera, which seems strange because it was really good from the reviews/samples I can recall.

Pentax also used it in the KS2, another vastly underrated camera. It still sells brand new for around $500 and much less used, which I think would be an even better cheapish camera to potentially convert young people. That's probably what I would go for next time another member of our next generation shows an interest.
