In search of a good mirrorless camera & lens for instagram content

Hello everyone,

For the past 6 years I 've been using an ancient Nikon D3200 for my instagram content mostly with the kit lens but also the 50mm 1.8 and although it's served me good, I need to step-up my game. Because I am making money out of my social media and I have deals with some good brands I want to invest on a good mirrorless camera which will help me produce good quality content for them.

I have had a look on different cameras such as the Sony a6500 and the Fuji X-T100 (I don't really care about brands, I am open to anything really) but also more high-end ones such as the Sony a7 III. However because I ve not been following the camera industry news for a while I thought I could use the advice of the fellow members of this forum.

The things I am not interested in:


-Sports/action photography



The things I am interested in:

-Sharp photos of interiors and sharp photos of outfit portraits in moody weather - so I guess that would be good low/medium-light performance?

-Easy connectivity with Iphone/MacBook

-Budget. I am a PhD student so I cannot afford a 3.000£ camera, but I would consider getting the a7 III and pay with instalments if it would really make a difference in comparison to the cheaper options. Keep in mind the use of the photos will be almost exclusively for social media channels.

Looking forward to your advice! Thanks a lot! I hope this thread helps other people with similar interests.
