                  Hi Mathilda, sorry to hear about this. We suggest setting the Monitor Brightness to Sunny Weather for shooting outdoors with the camera. Thanks_Mitch Sonystyle

                  What's NEX? Sony Alpha a5100 first impressions review
                  As Sony introduces the Alpha a5100 interchangeable lens camera, it officially leaves behind the NEX moniker its mirrorless line originated with. The a5100 picks up where the NEX-5 series leaves off, combining the 24.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensorFull Review

                  One of the smallest, lightest and most affordable mirrorless cameras currently offered with an APS-C sensor, and sharing the same imaging pipeline as the Sony A6000, the Sony A5100 has few rivals in terms of offering good quality for the price. ItFull Review

                  Sony a5100 Review: A Great Mirrorless Camera for Beginners
                  If the a51000 were a larger camera, I might ding it for the lack of features such as an accessory shoe or extra physical controls. But if that's the trade-off to get the camera so small, it's worthwhile for many people, especially novices who mayFull Review

                  First the APS-C sensor, inherited from the higher-end A6000. This means the A5100 now enjoys 24 Megapixels to its predecessor's 20, but more importantly means it also boasts the A6000's 179 embedded phase-detect AF points which allow that model toFull Review
