Quicker autofocus than a DSLR
Shoot better with the α6000: superb 24-MP quality, quick autofocus — and very portable. Add an OLED Tru-Finder™, manual controls and a range of lenses for a superior alternative to bulky DSLRs.
Shoot in 0.06 seconds with ultra-fast auto focus
The perfect moment, captured
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.
Sony launches a new age of autofocus
4D FOCUS enables superior autofocus performance in four dimensions: wide autofocus coverage (2D height and width), fast autofocus speed (3D depth) and enhanced predictive tracking (4D time).
Your camera, your colour
Capture the moment as never before. α6000’s autofocus is faster than a DSLR so you never miss a shot. And with new colours to choose from, your photos aren’t the only way to express yourself.
Quality starts with the sensor
More area for more detailed images
The truth is simple: better images begin with bigger sensors, and 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. The result is an outstanding level of quality in every image.
Sharper details, faster AF
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.
Introducing ultra-fast auto focus
Capture everything from flying water droplets to fleeting smiles
An ultra-fast autofocus makes the α6000 one of the most versatile interchangeable lens cameras available. At a mere 0.06 seconds, you're assured of getting the perfect shot in any situation, from family events to sports and nature.
Never miss the perfect shot
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 fast AF to capture your subject at the exact moment you intend.
Stop the action, not the thrills
Freeze your subject at an amazing 11 fps for dramatic shots that capture the exact moment or expression you’re looking for.
With Full 1080 HD at 60p or 24p, you can make the aesthetic choice to capture film-like motion in your videos.
AF features for any scene
Eye AF, Lock-on AF and more let you delegate that aspect to the camera, freeing you to concentrate on the content of the scene.
More camera. Less to carry.
Expert features, customisable buttons and manual controls—in a compact, lightweight design.
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.
Smarter viewfinder for better photos
The OLED Tru-Finder™ EVF is another α6000 expert-level tool, with real-time data for planning and previewing shots. Exposure Control compensates for bright/dim scenes, Focus Zoom enlarges a chosen detail and Display Mode reveals histograms and more.
