Sony Alpha α5000 - The Camera I Want To Travel With

My passion for photography started way back in high school and it slowly turned into a passion for travelling. Discovering & exploring amazing places made me realize the importance of freezing the moment by capturing stunning yet realistic photographs of the scenery. For almost 6 years now, I've been carrying my bulky dslr. There were instances that I skipped taking photos simply because I can't bring & fit my dslr in my backpack anymore and I realized that I need to switch to a mirrorless camera ASAP! There are so many brands to choose from but I really want the Sony Alpha α5000 to be my travel buddy from now on. Here are some of the reasons why this camera stood out from others:

Incredible details & colors of photographs

Its 20.1 MP APS-C sensor size, Sony Exmor® APS HD CMOS technology & BIONZ X™ image processing engine produces high quality images- even in lowlight! These features will allow me to capture the intricate details of historical structures I love to visit and the true & vibrant colors of our country's beautiful beaches.

Can capture excellent photos at night

My friends & I would like to experience campings, bonfires & sleeping under the stars someday. Fortunately, with Sony Alpha α5000's ISO that can be adjusted up to 16000, we will be able to preserve the moment and relieve it whenever we look into the well-taken photos.

Can record Full HD videos

The DSLR I'm using right now doesn't have a video feature yet and it's such a hassle because I had to use another gadget for my travel videos. I'm fond of editing and compiling clips so the 60i/24p Blu-Ray AVCHD™ or PC-friendly 1080/30p MP4 formats of this camera will give me superb quality and no need to bring another gadget! All in one!

Amazing battery life

Running out of battery in the middle of travelling is definitely one of the worst things that can happen to anyone. But I am confident with this camera as it can take up to 420 shots on a single charge. I can also see the remaining power so I'll know when to take a break and recharge.

Lots of innovative features

This camera is full of incredible features that will enhance all my travel photos and videos including the Auto Object Framing that can recognize perfect compositions, the Photo Creativity mode that makes enhancing colors, brightness and even background defocus very easy while viewing the results real-time, Manual modes and Creative Style modes will give me the power to choose how I want to shoot, Sweep Panorama for effortlessly capturing the entire scenery and landscapes and a lot more features that I only saw in this powerful camera.

San Antonio, Zambales: Pundaquit Beach, Camara Island, Capones Island and Anawangin Cove

This post is long overdue but let's just pretend that I posted this on schedule (haha!) which should be on the first week of January. I started 2016 by going to the beach but that was for the purpose of my thesis. I concluded the year the same way but for a totally different reason, just for relaxation and a quick escape from the work-home routine!
I stayed 2 days at Pundaquit Beach in San Antonio, Zambales with the whole family. We just relaxed, ate and stayed in the pool on our first day- something I wish I can do atleast once a week hahaha!

Antipolo, Rizal: Cloud 9 Resort & Hotel

Ever since I was a kid, my grandparents always picked me up from school and even when I started college, they were just one text away whenever I needed a ride. I can say I'm super close to them that I still sit on my grandma's lap haha! And now that I'm working, I've been wanting to treat them out, so last Sunday, we attended mass at Antipolo and ate lunch at Cloud 9 (they are currently making buzz on facebook because of their overlooking location and their famous hanging bridge!).
