Quicker autofocus than a DSLR*
Capture moving subjects in sharper detail with the world's quickest autofocus* - just 0.06 seconds - and 11fps continuous shooting with superior AF tracking performance, ensuring the perfect moment is always captured when shooting moving subjects. This speed is made possible by the combination of a 179-point focal plane phase-detection AF sensor, covering nearly the entire image area, plus high-speed, high-precision contrast-detection AF.
Hyper-real image quality
Enjoy big camera performance in a remarkably small body. A large Exmor APS-C image sensor with around 24.3 effective megapixels gives detailed images with rich tonal gradation. And the BIONZ X image processing engine enhances detail, reduces noise and gives hyper-real images. ISO settings range from 100 to 25,600 ensuring great versatility and performance, even at dusk or night time.
The a6000 is more like a DSLR in terms of operation. The Intuitive dial operation lets you make swift adjustments while looking through the viewfinder and there are buttons that enable you to customise your preferences. There's an improved user interface that can be customised for quick access to your key functions and a Multi Interface Shoe that accepts a wide range of accessories. A built-in flash and tiltable LCD screen complete the high-spec line-up.
