Mirrorless Camera

I'm considering buying a mirrorless camera next month since I'll be traveling to Malaysia. The gadgets there are less expensive than in my country and the particular camera I'm interested in is around 50% cheaper!

Though I still can't decide whether to get the Sony a5100 or the Sony a6000. It's core features are pretty much identical. The a5100 is actually a newer model with a smaller body and 180 degree tiltable LCD touchscreen (for selfies). However, it doesn't have a viewfinder and accessory hotshoe like the a6000. The a6000, on the other hand, is $100 more expensive but you get normal LCD (not touchscreen) and it won't tilt to 180 degrees.

I'm not really a selfie person but since I'll be traveling alone I figure it might come in handy so I'm currently leaning on the a5100. The lack of hotshoe is really sad though Sad

Fun fact: The cost of this camera in Malaysia plus my airline tickets are actually cheaper than if I buy this camera in my country. Though I might not have warranty though

That must be a cheap camera then. Sony is a great brand and I'm sure worth traveling for.

Trip to purchase a camera! Cool Definitely test before heading home in case there are any issues then hopefully you can exchange without hassle.

That's an incredible price!

Maybe you could buy more and resell them in your country!

Just to make sure not over the quota, or Customs might charge you taxes.
