    That does sound really good, and the a6500 seems like a quality upgrade. My a350 only had the kit lens and I'm currently trying to sell it. I'm totally new to taking photos that aren't via mobile, and I know the a350 is fine for learning, but I'd much prefer something a lot more modern.

    Yes, but I didn't say I'd get one for 320. I said I seen an a6000 going for that, but I am willing to spend 800ish for a camera or camera with lens.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply. I guess I need to take more time in knowing the ins and outs of the Sony I have, practice more for the month until I buy my new one. I also think because my a350 is an older camera it just seems very dated and cumbersome to navigate through. But that is...

    I joined MPB and they have some great prices on cameras and lenses. Plus I can trade my old Sony in, even if I don't get very much for it, and it's a little too bulky for my daughter to start on. Better than eBay for the most part. I think this is where I will purchase my camera, unless a great...

    To make menu guidance easier, and the touch to focus instead of the joystick. Plus, the way technology is going, like phones, I think all cameras will soon have this function. They will still have physical buttons and dials, but I just see it's the way things are going. A touch screen isn't a...

    I don't like the layout of Sony menu systems, and as a complete novice, I'd like my first decent camera to be a little less convoluted. Also, I said I had about £800 for a camera. I never said I'd get a Fuji that cheap.

    I'm still considering the xt20, but I've been looking at the xt2 also, and I keep scouring eBay. Thanks again for all of this information and help. I did see a a6000 for 320 with lens, but I just don't like the Sony menu system and lack of touch screen.

    What body would you recommend and then ecosystem of lenses that I can use when I eventually upgrade the body, or which company is best for lenses?

    Can you recommend any websites that do good reviews.

    My closest is Glasgow I believe. The two year warranty is something I wouldn't get used, so that's another consideration. I wasn't going to buy from PC world, but I did get the feel of how a couple of mirrorless feel in the hand. I see DSLR are smaller now than my a350, but I just think...

    Ha. Yes, I know how this feels, and I won't be buying the camera for another month or two as I have a few big things I need to pay for first. But even if I got the more expensive camera, I'd happily buy a decent lens the following month (monthly wages). So I still have time to mull over...

    I'm actually considering the G9, or maybe it's the G8. I wouldn't like anything too small, and that kind of takes the 4/3 cameras out of my list.

    The same for me, well, unless I go to Edinburgh or Glasgow, which isn't that far by train. But I'm definitely going the used route, unless I do take a trip and find a good sale going on.

    Solid advice. Although, so far I am thinking the Fujifilm, but the Lumix series sound pretty decent too. Thanks for the information :)

    Sure. I can see why the tilt could be better. I don't care for using it for vlogs or selfies and things like that. I just want a good camera with a decent screen and a viewfinder

    I'm actually going to buy used, but being unsure about best setups, I overwhelm myself with the amount of cameras on offer. Plus I would like something that will last a few years, then when I upgrade, the lenses will still fit.

    I think with technology evolving so much, it's only a matter of time now until touchscreen is standard. Just tried an a6300 and Canon M50 at my local PC World, and neither had any charge in them. I don't have a dedicated camera shops near me either. I liked the feel of both compared to my a350...

    Thanks. A colleague of mine, a young guy who's only been shooting for a year, has a Lumix G3, and although it's also an older camera, he has taken some really great shots. What I don't like mostly about the a350 is the weight and the digital screen is sub HD, so as a new start I can't really see...

    I'm nowhere near manual mode skill level yet :) I'm totally new to DSLR and actual cameras in general. But my DSLR isn't ideal for a lot of the things i do due to size etc. I'm still getting to grips with the Sony and I'm know it's a decent enough camera to start with, and I will practice a lot...

    I think because I am totally new to it all, but much like mountain biking, I'd rather start off with a more modern piece of equipment from the start, but I do know it's the rider/photographer that makes the pictures. I am a total noob to photography though.

    I'll have a look at both of these just now. So far the Fuji xt-20 is at the top of the list, but the 4/3 seems like a good option too.

    It does seem like quite a popular travel camera and I'm looking it up just now. To be honest, I already regret buying the Sony a350. I've still to buy a laptop (this month), and the live screen on the Sony, with it being really old, is pretty crap, so all the details are very pixelated and...

    I was thinking of the xt-2, but being relatively new, or really new to cameras I think the xt-20 will be better for my skill level, as I've read and seen that it's more noob friendly, but that's just what I've seen.

    Hey. Sorry, I've been working a lot and haven't had much time to reply. I've looked at the M4/3 and smaller sized mirrorless cameras too. I'll reply to everyone as soon as I can tomorrow as I'm just finished another 14 hour shift. I'll make sure to have a look at all suggestions and do a little...

    I was actually considering the A7 and looking at reviews. I like that it's a full frame, but I'm looking for something a little more user friendly. In the future I'd like a full frame, but not for a while.

    Nice. I've been watching some reviews about it just now and even the kit lens seems pretty decent for what it is. Actually, the more I read about this camera the better it is sounding. Thanks for the information.

    Yes, I meant Fuji, sorry. And what is their range of lenses for mirrorless like? The next camera I buy I want to stick with the same brand for ease of use, or until I am fully confident with photography in general. I've read reviews of that model and it does seem like a pretty good all round...

    Hi. I'm really new to photography and I bought an old Sony a350 to start out and it only cost £110 and is in great working order. But I am really wanting to upgrade and also get a mirrorless camera. I have a budget of around £800 for a camera with a lens, or less for just the body and I can put...
