The Sony Alpha looks to be a great camera with superb reviews and I have held ambition to try the system for a while now. 

I can’t afford the latest model without swapping all my kit which has always been a gamble too far. But  this looks to be a really good starting point to have a look at the system to see just how it feels, operates and performs.

OK, it’s not the latest model with a 42.4 megapixel cell but it does have a 24.2 megapixels full frame cell. So a good place to start.

It’s Amazon’s Black Friday deal on this camera which is coming in at £799 less £150 cashback from Sony when it’s purchased between October 17th and January 31st 2019.

If you have Prime, or join during the checkout, then it’s only £659 which means you can own a full frame Sony mirrorless camera with a 28-70mm zoom lens for £509 after the Sony cashback of £150.

That, to me, appears to be an amazing deal!

Some of Fujifilm’s more advanced models are shown below with a few random accessories. Fujifilm are still my camera of choice for my current use.

If you don’t want to go for full frame then the Fujifilm X range could be perfect for you. I have been using these, on and off, for a number of years since retiring as a pro.

They are lovely cameras and produce great results with their DSLR type photocells, good range of high quality lenses, superb engineering, and small but comfortable retro styling.

This is the starting model. It’s probably the smallest in the range but shares the super quality cell, uses the same lenses as it’s big brothers so that it is well capable of providing the Fujifilm image quality.
