Camera second thoughts four years later


I recently bought a pixel 6 primarily for it’s camera. Up until this point I have been using a Sony a6000 that I bought four years ago. I’ve continued to use my Sony, but I have begun taking the same photo on both devices and it seems as if the pixel shoots photos of similar quality. Snapping on the kit EPZ, the pixel consistently performs better. Sure it’s probably mostly post processing (actually I know it is), sure my camera is many years old at this point, but I’m having a hard time justifying carting around the big gun that costed 2x more than the entire phone, unless I’m planning on editing the raws.

I’m by no means a professional so I’m interested to hear the opinion of one. I desperately want to be proven wrong.
