Shoot in 0.06 seconds with ultra-fast autofocus
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.
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 color
Capture the moment as never before. α6000's autofocus is faster than a DSLR so you never miss a shot. And with new colors 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 in specific areas to ensure sharp images. All these advantages apply equally to still images or video.
Exmor™ CMOS sensor
The new 24.3MP APS HD sensor features optimized light gathering (through angled micro-lenses) and improved light sensitivity.
The BIONZ X™ image processor ensures images of the highest quality, and provides the muscle needed for ultra-fast AF.
Amazing shots in low light
The extremely high ISO range lets you shoot natural, nuanced photos in dim light or indoors without a flash.
Introducing ultra-fast autofocus
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.
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, customizable buttons, and manual controls—in a compact, lightweight design.
The α6000 is 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.
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.
