I'm new to photography but love taking pictures although, I don't really think I'm all that excellent at it. I do not plan on pursing a career out of the art photography I just like taking pictures as a small hobby and documenting my everyday encounters. However I'm a big outdoors person and just like taking pictures of my animals both inside and outdoors along with other random shots. Unfortunately, I have only had the chance to use a nice camera a handful of times other than that I'm basically stuck to my phone's camera.
Basically I'm looking for advice on what camera to purchase. I do not plan on taking photos with an extreme amount of zoom but I will be trying to capture birds at a moderate distance. I will also be taking lots of macro pictures of plants/mosses outdoors. However not all of my shots will be taken outdoors. I also like the cameras with the manual adjustable lens where you can focus your images manually, however I will still probably need some type of auto-focus because animals and nature do not like to stay still naturally so I will have somewhat of a limited time to manually focus the camera and I am not real accustomed to manual focusing, so my shots my not come out real sharp.
My price range for the camera will be around 300-550 with the chance of purchasing other equipment in the future.
Any advice or hate is appreciated, as I am a newb.

I've been using a t3i for a while now, it was good to learn with, but I've come to find that the image quality is shit. I'm ready to upgrade to the next step. I want something with better image quality, sharpness, and for under $600.
I was thinking of getting a mirrorless, perhaps the Sony A5100. Is it really that bad not having a view finder? Otherwise the A5100 is suppose to have excellent image quality... I just need to find a fast lens for it.
Are there any other options I haven't though of?

I was inspired to try a different style of editing by GR bro
so I went around and took some random photos in a variety of lighting situations in the house, just to practice the editing.
Subjects are bland, and there's not much reason to look at them, but I had fun, and I enjoy the results of the edits, so I though I would share.
It's a new edit style, so I'm sure I went a bit too far with the toning. I'll be keeping my eye out for actual times to use this style, and working to improve it. Thanks for your candor, GR Bro.
