The technical details behind this camera
Shoot better with the A6000: superb 24 MP 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. Unlike many competitors, the A6000’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. 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). Bigger sensor
The truth is simple: better images begin with bigger sensors, and the a6000 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 a6000 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. Freeze your subject at an amazing 11 fps for dramatic shots that capture the exact moment or expression you’re looking for. Film-like video
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 a6000 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 a6000 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. Top three Reasons we think you will love this camera
Our expert’s opinion
- Big 24 megapixel sensor
- Excellent autofocus
- Light weight
The Sony Alpha A6000 mirrorless camera is versatile and advanced. Its 24 megapixel sensor, boosted by a BIONZ X image processor, provide high quality images even in low-light situations. Continuous 11 fps shooting is impressive too, especially since the autofocus can keep up with that demand. In fact, the Fast Hybrid AF system is so good because it utilises both a 179-point phase-detection system and a 25-point contrast-detection system. It can achieve focus in 0.06 seconds! It’s also compact and light weight but still sports a large LCD monitor. Its features are too many to list here. Basically, it’s a great value for money compact camera. The included 16-50mm lens is great for wide and portraiture work, and can always be complemented by the vast number of Sony E-mount lenses. Why Camera House?
