All packed, ready to be dropped off at UPS Store in Concord, NH, on Thursday, May 4, 2017.


Arrival of the Sony a6000 kit, from ‘Cardinal Photo’, on November 16, 2016.


I got the kit, on a pre-‘Black Friday’ steal, for $699.

See this post.

The Sony a6000, was ALWAYS, going to be temporary.

The plan, as of October 2016, was to get Sony a6500 — when it became available in mid-December 2016. I can demonstrate that! {SMILE}

I didn’t end up getting a6500 because I was in the throes of writing my ‘Central Pain Syndrome‘ book. I wanted to finish that book before I got another new camera.

So now is the time, though I have already started working on my NEXT book.

Yes, I am still going to get a Sony a6500 BUT not for another couple of weeks.

I am first going to get a Sony a7II. Yes, I am going Full-Frame. A bucket-list wish.

Then I am getting a6500 to be my compact for shows, concerts, circuses etc. 


Amazon is promising me $476 for the trade-in as you can see from the first image.

But, they invariably reduce that offer once they have the camera. I am expecting around $420.

So, I paid $699 and will get back $420.

So having the Sony a6000 for 5 and a half-months would have cost me $279.

That comes to $1.65 a day!

And nobody, but nobody could say I did NOT use that camera.

I took 11,684 pictures with the a6000 during those 169 days — in addition to using my Nikon P900 on some days.

That says I paid $0.02 per picture.

So, I am happy.

Hoping to have the Sony a7II next week and the Sony a6500 at the end of the month. There is a show we are going to in early June.
