Unlike many competitors, the α6000’s Fast Hybrid AF combines the strengths of both phase- and contrast-detection autofocus. With a class-leading 179 phase detection points (covering almost the entire image) and a high-speed contrast-detection function, the result is not only an impressive 11 fps burst mode, but also highly accurate movement tracking for both stills and video.
Reasons to buy
4D FOCUS enables superior autofocus performance in four dimensions: wide autofocus coverage (2D height and width), fast autofocus speed (3D depth) and enhanced predictive tracking (4D time).
Capture the moment as never before. α6000’s autofocus is faster than a DSLR so you never miss a shot. And with new colours to choose from, your photos aren’t the only way to express yourself.
The truth is simple: better images begin with bigger sensors, and the α6000 outclasses many cameras in its category. Its APS-C size sensor offers 1.6 times the area of 4/3 sensors, and 13 times that of the 1/2.3 sensors of typical compact digital cameras. The result is an outstanding level of quality in every image.
With three times the processing speed of earlier models, the new BIONZ X™ is able to accurately capture textures, reduce blurry details and even suppress visual noise to ensure sharp images. These advantages apply equally to still images or video.
The new 24.3 MP APS HD sensor features optimised light gathering (through angled micro-lenses) and improved light sensitivity.
The BIONZ X™ image processor ensures images of the highest quality, and provides the muscle needed for ultra-fast AF.
The extremely high ISO range lets you shoot natural, nuanced photos in dim light or indoors without a flash.
An ultra-fast autofocus makes the α6000 one of the most versatile interchangeable lens cameras available. At a mere 0.06 seconds, you're assured of getting the perfect shot in any situation, from family events to sports and nature.
The advanced Fast Hybrid AF enables more scenes to be focused via phase-detection only (reducing reliance on the contrast-detection mode), delivering fast AF to capture your subject at the exact moment you intend.
Freeze your subject at an amazing 11 fps for dramatic shots that capture the exact moment or expression you’re looking for.
With Full 1080 HD at 60p or 24p, you can make the aesthetic choice to capture film-like motion in your videos.
Eye AF, Lock-on AF and more let you delegate that aspect to the camera, freeing you to concentrate on the content of the scene.
The best camera is the one you have with you. With its compact size and light weight, the α6000 compares favourably to bulkier, heavier DSLRs. Yet with the creativity of interchangeable lenses, manual controls and more, you sacrifice nothing.
The OLED Tru-Finder™ EVF is another α6000 expert-level tool, with real-time data for planning and previewing shots. Exposure Control compensates for bright/dim scenes, Focus Zoom enlarges a chosen detail and Display Mode reveals histograms and more.
Wi-Fi® and NFC (Near Field Communication) connectivity make it simple to show and share your genius. It requires no complicated setup and—in one step—enables the transfer of photos or movies to NFC-compatible Android smartphones or tablets.
