24.3-megapixel APS-C image sensor - Create exceptional images with Sony’s 24.3-effective- megapixel APS-C image sensor. The same size as found in most DSLRs, this sophisticated sensor offers high sensitivity in dimly lit environments and strikingly attractive foreground and background defocusing. You’ll enjoy the increased light collecting efficiency of a gapless on-chip lens structure, extremely low noise throughout a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25600, and superb corner-to-corner image quality with lifelike color, supreme detail and smooth tonal gradations that reveal every nuance of your scene.
BIONZ X image processing engine - Exceptionally fast, Sony’s BIONZ X image processing engine reproduces textures and details in real time as seen by the naked eye. The resulting images are remarkably realistic with especially rich tonal gradations and a natural three-dimensional appearance. Whether shooting still images or movies, visual noise is nearly imperceptible, thanks to area-specific noise reduction. Detail reproduction technology delivers finely detailed textures while diffraction-reducing technology optimises the performance of any lens you mount to enable advances such as finer details at small aperture settings.
Full HD movies - Press the MOVIE button to start recording beautiful movies that are notable for their sharpness and lack of visual “noise”—in your choice of 60p/50p, 60i/50i or 24p/25p*. Fast Hybrid AF provides remarkably fast and accurate autofocusing and tracking while shooting movies. You can also use P/A/S/M modes to achieve maximum control over how the image looks, and zoom with extra clarity, courtesy of Clear Image Zoom. *NTSC/PAL
The world’s fastest* AF performance - Capture every subject clearly with unparalleled precision, at record speed, thanks to Sony’s Fast Hybrid AF with excellent phase-detection and contrast-detection capabilities. Fast data reading from the image sensor, high-speed BIONZ X data processing, AF algorithms and optimised control of the lens drive delivers approximately 35% faster performance than in previous systems. *Among interchangeable-lens digital cameras equipped with an APS-C image sensor as of February 12, 2014, based on Sony research. Measured using internal methods with an E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS IS lens mounted. CIPA guideline compliant.
179 AF points over nearly the entire screen - In addition to 25 high-speed, high-precision contrast-detection AF (Fast Intelligent AF) points, the Fast Hybrid AF system features 179 extremely accurate phase-detection AF points that cover nearly the entire image area. They permit enhanced subject tracking plus the capture of fast-moving subjects anywhere on the screen, as well as improved scene recognition and subject size detection.
11 fps continuous shooting with AF tracking - When your subject is moving fast, 11 fps continuous shooting with superior AF tracking performance ensures you capture the decisive moment. This feature makes the most of the superb tracking performance of Sony’s wide-area 179 phase-detection AF points to accurately track your subject anywhere on the screen.
Eye AF - Even when capturing a subject partially turned away from the camera with a shallow depth of field, the face is sharply focused thanks to extremely accurate Eye AF. A green frame appears over the prioritised eye when focus has been achieved.
Improved Lock-on AF - Exceptionally accurate, due to phase-detection AF, Lock-on AF enhances tracking of moving subjects by adjusting target frame size to match subject characteristics and ensuring usage of the optimal AF point at all times.
AF mode - Matching the focus mode to the subject assures super-sharp results. The 6000 is the first E-mount camera to offer AF-A, and displays the active AF points even in the AF-C mode so you can easily check if you are focusing on the intended subject.
High-resolution OLED Tru-Finder - View every scene clearly and naturally on the bright and accurate OLED Tru-Finder viewfinder, which offers 100% frame coverage. The optical system with four double aspherical lenses provides a wide viewing angle of approximately 33° and clear visibility from corner to corner. Clear details, rich tonal gradation, and high contrast are yours in both dark and light environments, thanks to an OLED design that lets you more faithfully preview defocusing, exposure, and other effects. You can also fine-tune the focus by taking advantage of MF Assist and a helpful Peaking function, as well as adjust brightness in five steps to match the shooting environment.
Swift, intuitive operation - Controls are refined for intuitive DSLR-style operation while viewing scenes through the viewfinder. The mode dial enables quick selection of shooting modes with your thumb, while the control dial and control wheel make it easy to set various parameters.
Customisable buttons - Button customisation lets you shoot just the way you like for greater speed and convenience. You can assign any of 47 functions* to any of 7 buttons (including 2 dedicated custom buttons), and assign up to 12 functions to the Fn button for quick access. *Some functions can only be assigned to certain buttons.
Tiltable 3” LCD screen - Shooting comfort is enhanced by a 3” LCD screen that smoothly tilts to accommodate everything from low to high-angle shooting. This tilting flexibility combines with the camera’s compact mobility to greatly expand your shooting options.
Customisable UI - The User Interface takes on many of the features of A-mount cameras to enable smooth, personalized operation. Quick Navi Pro displays all major shooting options for quick confirmation and adjustment. The Fn button also enables swift access to preferred features.

The a6000 is a small but smart camera that inherits lots of the good things that Sony started with the NEX cameras along with some nice improvements and one inexcusable lack!
* Good EVF. Lower in resolution than the old NEX-6 and NEX-7 models, but after some use you'll forget that. The EVF is clear, responsive and easy to work through. It could be better with a bigger magnification although.
* I love the hand grip, the dials and buttons are easy to use and well located and it has enough customizable buttons to satisfy nearly everyone.
* It sports a 24Mpx sensor which you can use until iso 800 without any problem, starting being a bit noisy at 1.600, but perfectly usable. From there on, I'd go only if necessary.
* Impressive AF, both single and continuous. At last one mirrorless by Sony with a nice tracking AF.
And all in a very small package. The only thing I miss on this camera is the electronic level. For me this is a deal breaker, and it's a pity cause I really like the camera. I can't understand why the hell Sony doesn't include it. I even thought that they could just bring it to life in a firmware, but we all know those guys, that is not going to happen. They have a kind of allergy to improve their cameras through firmware. They prefer to launch another one in some time adding theses kind of little improvements.

The 16-70 Carl Zeiss is not a bad zoom, but could be optically better for that price.
* It's well made in a metal barrel. You feel it on your hands like a real good lens.Read more ›
CAMERA: If you are an aspiring photographer, then the a6000 is perfect! It is a portable size, that is ideal for someone not wanting to bother with a heavy SLR or DSLR camera - it is also more subtle and modest for its capabilities!
It is listed as an ADVANCED AMATUER camera on the Sony website, and I could not agree with this more!
I have had the a6000 camera for around 6 months now, and I can tell you that I absolutely love it! For a camera that is now a year and a half old, it is STILL one of the most recommended cameras in terms of value and quality across most magazines and review websites!
LENS: Its upgradeable capability is great as well - The Carl Zeiss lens supplied in this package is at the premium side of lenses, and so will not need upgraded for years! - I regret not getting this lens to begin with, as I bought a cheaper lens, and am now saving for the Zeiss lens in order to get the full potential of the camera's quality!
Also, if you start picking up premium lenses like this one, then it will make the next time you buy a camera cheaper, as many of the lenses that can be attached to the a6000, can also be used for the upgrade model (The Sony a7). That's my plan anyway!
