It is December 1st 2014 and there is a great deal on what I’m calling the best cheap video camera. If you’re looking for an extreme budget camera look no further than the Sony a5000.
Right now the Sony a5000 can be had for $298 and it comes with a lens! That is straight up crazy talk folks. Previously the a5000 was going for $498 new. This camera would be perfect for a first camera to get started with, a cheap walk around body or a decent second camera.
Why is this camera deal so great? Check out these specs and tell me this isn’t a good deal:
Sony a5000 Video Specifications
- 1080p at 24fps AND 60fps
- APS-C Sensor
- E-Mount (One of the best mounts for adapting lenses.
- Flip up screen
- Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Zoom Lens (OSS = Image Stabilization)
I don’t know about you, but I think the Canon EOS-M deals have some serious competition.
You can get your a5000 in all colors at B&H Photo Video or at Amazon (silver and white only which is weird).
