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.
More area for more detailed images 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, resulting in an outstanding level of quality in every image.
BIONZ X™ Processor 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 to ensure sharp images. These advantages apply equally to still images or video.
Exmor™2 CMOS sensor The new 24.3 MP APS HD sensor features optimised light gathering (through angled micro-lenses) and improved light sensitivity.
Amazing shots in low light The extremely high ISO range lets you shoot natural, nuanced photos in dim light or indoors without a flash.
At 0.06 seconds, capture flying water drops and fleeting smiles. The world’s fastest autofocus makes the α6000 one of the most versatile interchangeable-lens camera available; at a mere 0.06 seconds, you’re assured of getting the perfect shot in any situation from family events to sports to nature.
Fast Hybrid AF The advanced Fast Hybrid AF enables more scenes to be focused via phase-detection only (reducing reliance on the contrast-detection mode), delivering the world’s fastest AF available to capture your subject at the exact moment you intend.
The α6000 is smaller and lighter than comparable DSLRs The best camera is the one you have with you. With its compact size and light weight, the α6000 compares favourably to bulkier, heavier DSLRs. Yet with the creativity of interchangeable lenses, manual controls and more, you sacrifice nothing.
