The bigger sensor in the Alpha A7C, as well as the faster and more accurate auto focus and higher sensitivity, are all advantages of the camera. We particularly appreciate the improved viewfinder, the optical image stabilizer, and the touch screen, which is rather pleasant to use. Because of the greater video recording, the ability to connect an external microphone, and the longer battery life of the Alpha A7C, it is simple to suggest this camera. Another benefit of the Alpha A6000 over the Alpha A6000 is the compatibility for USB 3.0, which seems like a luxury these days, given the size of today’s images and the requirements of 4K video.
