All the quality in half the size
Test the limits of your creativity with the premium mirrorless DSLR that’s focused on speed. Every artistic shot you take—from fast-action to candid—benefits from 24.3MP detail and the world’s fastest auto focus6. For capturing crucial moments that go by in a blink, the a6000 can shoot 11 photos in one second. It’s compact and easy to use, too. Two quick-access dials let you change settings on the fly. Very intuitive.
The perfect moment, captured perfectly
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.
Quality starts with the sensor
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.
Smaller and lighter than comparable DSLRs
The saying in photography is that the best camera is the one you have with you. With its compact size and light weight, the α6000 compares favorably to bulkier, heavier DSLRs. Yet with the creativity of interchangeable lenses, manual controls and more, you sacrifice nothing.
No additional gear to tote; flash with a GN6; ISO 100・m rating lets you shoot great images in dimly-lit settings, and use a faster shutter to minimize blur from camera shake.
3” Tiltable LCD screen
Shoot more creatively; screen can be tilted up and down to accurately shoot over a crowd, or to get unique, startling shots of pets, children, and more.
Smarter viewfinder for better photos
The OLED Tru-Finder™ EVF is another of the α6000’s expert-level tools, with rich real-time data for planning and previewing shots. Exposure Control compensates for overly bright/dim scenes, Focus Zoom accurately enlarges a chosen detail, and Display Mode reveals histograms and more.
Snap, tap, and share.
Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Communication) connectivity make it simple to show, and share, your genius. It requires no complicated setup and⎯in one step⎯enables the transfer of photos or movies to NFC-compatible Android smartphones or tablets.
