Product Description

At a glance

  • Never miss a shot with the world's quickest autofocus* - just 0.06 seconds - made possible by a 179-point focal plane phase-detection AF sensor
  • Get professional quality detail with the Exmor APS-C image sensor with around 24.3 effective megapixels and BIONZ X image processing engine
  • DSLR-style operation with extensive customisation options
  • Images are more natural looking and easier to view thanks to the high-contrast, high-resolution OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder
  • Great connectivity with Wi-Fi and One touch NFC (Near Field Communication)

Quicker autofocus than a DSLR

Capture moving subjects in sharper detail with the world's quickest autofocus* - just 0.06 seconds. A superior alternative to bulky DSLRs, thanks to a 179-point focal plane phase-detection AF sensor. So, you need never miss a photo opportunity again, even with a fast-moving subject. The a6000 also delivers superb image quality, courtesy of its large Exmor APS-C image sensor with around 24.3 effective megapixels and a powerful BIONZ X image processing engine. Operation is swift and highly intuitive thanks to an OLED Tru-Finder and two operation dials, while a tiltable LCD screen makes shooting over the top of crowds - or getting low-down shots of children or nature - effortless. And when it comes to sharing your pictures on Facebook, Twitter or by email via your mobile devices, it's simplicity itself with One touch NFC and Wi-Fi.

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.

DSLR-style operation

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.

See the whole picture with the OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder

The viewfinder on the a6000 features an optical system with four double aspherical lenses that deliver a wide viewing angle (approx. 33) and clear visibility from corner to corner. Together with high contrast and resolution, this system dramatically improves visibility. By maximizing the characteristics of the OLED - such as rich tonal gradation, faithful colour reproduction and high contrast - the viewfinder displays true-to-life images that look natural and are easy to view.

Easy sharing with One touch NFC and Wi-Fi

Shoot, touch and share - in an instant. With One touch NFC and built-in Wi-Fi, all it takes is a quick touch to wirelessly transfer photos and videos directly to an NFC-enabled smartphone, or tablet. You can even turn your phone or tablet into a remote control to control the camera and take photos. If you want to see the images on your TV, simply transfer them wirelessly. And when you want to get creative, you've a range of PlayMemories Camera Apps** to choose from.

Style Name: With SELP1650 Lens KitColour Name: Black
I believe that Amazon reviews are usually the most helpful and dependable, so when people choose to rate an outstanding product as '1 star' because they lost the eyepiece, it's being very unfair to the manufacturer - you the lost he eye piece not Sony!

Also, I think it's helpful to have some context - especially with cameras. In my case, I like to shoot casually; friends and family (kids), with some sports, holidays and cars. I have recently owned: A Sony Rx100 (simply outstanding), Fujifilm X-M1, Sony NEX6, Panasonic GM1 (crazy small and cute but terrible image noise), Canon S120 and Canon EOS40D.

What's so great about the A6000?

1) It's simply the most ergonomic of all the small APSC cameras anywhere near this price point. Only the Fujifilm X-T1 is better and that's twice the price! It is very compact but also feels very sturdy and comfortable grip for prolonged use. It feels like a real camera.

2) The photo quality is far superior to my RX100 or Fujifilm X-M1 in terms of sharpness and more natural looking skin tones - especially compared to the Fuji, which tends to make faces look a bit wax-like.

3) For kids, animals and sports it's simply unbeatable unless you pay more than twice the price. It is amazing at tracking fast moving objects from any angle or speed. It means that the photos have lovely depth of field - isolation of the main subject from the background - which is nicely blurred. The continuous shooting is approx. twice as fast as my previous digital SLR - again, amazing, I don't know how Sony have done but it works great.

4) Video is crisp, creamy-smooth panning, and the tracking focus helps the main objects really stand out - which smaller cameras simply cannot achieve. It looks stunning on a full-HD screen.

Style Name: Body OnlyColour Name: Black
I've had the camera over a week now and has some opportunity to test it and also use it for genuine photos rather than just test shots.

I've got a Sony NEX 5N and last year bought a Sony RX100 - mostly for its small size.

Although I have other cameras those are my main comparison cameras.

My main reason for buying the Sony a6000 was the Sony marketing of supposedly amazing auto-focus capabilities and also for the electronic view finder - which neither the NEX 5N nor RX100 have.

As well as landscapes I do also like to take occasional action shots of my dog and also wild life - a couple of years ago I went on a sea safari and got some excellent shots of dolphins and seals with my Nikon D700.

*** Auto Focus ***

The Sony a6000 has 179 AF points which the Sony marketing implies can quickly track any moving object in the frame and get perfect focus every time.

My young Labrador never stays in one place long enough and its a challenge getting action shots of her - hence my excitement when I saw the Sony marketing of the super fast autofocus system of the a6000 and the videos I saw on the Internet of the a6000 easily tracking fast moving subjects and every shot being in focus!

It looked like all I need do was whip out the camera, switch it on and it'd be able to automatically shot rapid action shots of my fast moving dog.

If only my experience matched the marketing. Instead the Sony struggled to even spot my small brown Labrador in outside locations ( fields, muddy paths etc ). Leaving it up to the Sony camera I was lucky to get any shots in focus!

Only had this for a week so I'm still getting used to it, but from my first impressions it's a lovely camera that takes great pictures even in the automatic modes. It handles well even with the larger zoom lens (50-210 mm). We also looked at the A5000 for its compact size but preferred the handling of this one. Plus we wanted the mode selection dial rather than accessing those via the screen. The digital view finder is very handy too when shooting in bright outside conditions. Wi-Fi connectivity are handy and we love the near-field-communication; however this drains the battery, so we have disabled it and only turn it on when needed.

If you can afford it, buy it.

This is an exceptional camera and you have to work hard to mess up a shot. The results you get are as close to "professional" quality as you can get this side of £3000. That is actually an understatement because unlike full frame DSLR's , you do not need to know anything about photography to take the perfect picture.

The body is much smaller and lighter than a DSLR. It won't quite fit in your pocket with the standard lens but it's easy to carry around all day in a small case. It is a quality piece of equipment and feels comfortable in the hand. I bought the silver version which has a nice retro look and reminds me of the Leica of the 60s.

It works in both j peg and raw modes so if you are into post production photoshoping that is a plus. The camera has 2 auto modes, and all the usual manual settings too. The auto focus is amazingly fast and because of its light weight, it makes it ideal for action photography or taking pics of the kids running about.

The lenses are interchangeable and you can mount full frame lenses with an additional adapter as well as the Sony e mount ones .The stock lens is superb and the zoom function is very smooth and perfect for framing shots.

Other noteworthy points are it has a hot shoe, an electronic viewfinder ( which has transformed my results) , an excellent flash which can be pointed at the ceiling and a tilting lcd screen.

It can shoot at an astonishing 11 frames a second in burst mode. You can happily shoot at 6400 iso without the standard size images getting grainy and in low light conditions it will take 3 exposures and merge them to give a far better result.
