Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Gold Award June 2014
The a6000 is a really solid camera and is better than its predecessor in almost every respect.
Richard Butler Richard Butler Jeff Keller Jeff Keller
80%

Conclusion

The a6000 brings Sony's latest interface improvements and enhanced JPEG processing to a well-featured, competitively-priced mid-range camera. Its stand-out features are its comprehensive video controls and continuous autofocus performance unprecedented at this price. The flexible but optically average power zoom make this a highly capable and compact package.

Reasons to buy

  • Great images from best-in-class sensor
  • Small body with generally well placed controls
  • Fast continuous shooting with class-leading autofocus
  • Excellent level of control over video (including manual exposure)
  • High quality, responsive viewfinder

Things to consider

  • Flash exposures often misjudged
  • Noise reduction can be a bit heavy-handed
  • Missing the touchscreen controls of less expensive models
  • Battery life quite low with power zoom lens

Suggested for

Anyone looking to shoot stills and video. Photographers wanting something small but capable. Amateur sports shooters.

Not suggested for

Shooters used to a twin-dial camera. Anyone looking to just use the kit zoom.

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.

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.

I came to this camera having been impressed with my NEX6 and having tried a NEX 3nl and NEX 5. I have also tried three different Panasonic micro 4/3 cameras.

Overall, for me this is the ideal camera and a nice step up from the NEX 6. It is small enough to be portable (with the 16-50 kit lens) but large enough to be ergonomically great to use.

The Sony APS-C sensor provides great results with nice rich JPEG colours. The tilt screen is extremely useful (especially for video) and the viewfinder is of very good quality.

The operation is pretty quick and its focus speed is greatly improved compared to the previous NEX models. However, Sony still have not caught up with the Panasonic micro 4/3 cameras that I have tried - they are unbelievably fast. What put me off the Panasonics though was the lower quality of their sensors, poor JPEG colours (noticeable green tint) and their own small collapsible lens.

The Sony E-mount lens range is slowly growing and offers some pretty good lenses. I love using the A6000 with the sel1670 Zeiss lens. It balances perfectly on the A6000 and provides an very useful 24mm to 105mm range. (Although that lens is generally way too expensive given what it delivers. I bought it from Amazon when they were selling it for just £400.) The Sony sel18200 lens is a good option if you need reach with a general purpose lens - although it does make the A6000 rather front heavy.

Overall I would thoroughly recommend this camera and the E-mount system.

However, there is one note of caution. If you plan on only using this camera with the kit lens then there may be better options. For example, you may be better off with one of the large sensor compact cameras such as the Sony RX100, Sony RX10, Canon G7X, G1X, Panasonic LX100, etc.
