Quicker autofocus than a DSLR
Shoot better with the α6000: superb 24MP quality, quick autofocus—and very portable. Add an OLED Tru-Finder™, manual controls, and a range of lenses, for a superior alternative to bulky DSLRs.
The perfect moment, captured perfectly
Shoot in 0.06 seconds with ultra-fast autofocus. 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.
Quality starts with the sensor
More area for more detailed images
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.
The new 24.3MP APS HD sensor features optimized 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.
Amazing shots in low light
The extremely high ISO range lets you shoot natural, nuanced photos in dim light or indoors without a flash.
The α6000 is smaller and lighter than comparable DSLRs
The saying in photography is that the best camera is the one you have with you. With its compact size and light weight, the α6000 compares favorably to bulkier, heavier DSLRs. Yet with the creativity of interchangeable lenses, manual controls and more, you sacrifice nothing.
Smarter viewfinder for better photos
The OLED Tru-Finder™ EVF is another of the α6000’s expert-level tools, with rich real-time data for planning and previewing shots. Exposure Control compensates for overly bright/dim scenes, Focus Zoom accurately 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.
