So I recently got a new camera. Previously I had a point-and-shoot my parents gave me for my birthday in 2008 (Whew that seems like a long time ago). Then I got an iPhone that took better quality photos and was a dual propose pocket device, and the point-and-shoot got put in a box.
I got fed up recently with the lack of manual controls on the iPhone I own, so off I went researching DSLR cameras. What I ended up with was a Sony Alpha 5100 Mirrorless. It was, I think, a good choice for a first step into the interchangeable lens category of cameras. October 13th had a wonderful sunset in my area and it was the first day I took the camera out to test it. I was happy with the result!
