The perfect moment, captured perfectly
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.
Sony launches a new age of autofocus
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).
Quality starts with the sensor
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.
Sharper details, faster AF
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 in specific areas to ensure sharp images. All these advantages apply equally to still images or video.
Introducing ultra-fast autofocus
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.
More camera. Less to carry.
Expert features, customizable buttons, and manual controls in a compact, lightweight design.
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.
Snap, tap, and share.
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.
