Reach for the α6000 to enjoy record-breaking AF performance, gorgeous image quality and DSLR-style operation in a compact, lightweight form. The ultra-fast AF performance (0.06 sec)*, 179 wide-area AF points and 11fps continuous shooting with accurate AF tracking let you capture swiftly moving subjects with crystal clarity. Sophisticated new imaging technology and wide-ranging ISO sensitivity deliver astoundingly beautiful image quality in all kinds of scenes. And precision dials combine with an OLED viewfinder to provide quick, intuitive DSLR-style operation. Whenever photographic opportunities arise, satisfy your passion for precision with the new α6000.
Capture every subject clearly with unparalleled precision at record speed, thanks to Sony's advanced Fast Hybrid AF with ultra-fast autofocusing capabilities. It selects contrast-detection AF (Fast Intelligent AF) or phase-detection AF depending on the scene and enables more scenes to be autofocused via phase-detection method only, resulting in fast AF (0.06 sec.)*.
The improved Fast Hybrid AF system features 179 extremely accurate phase-detection AF points that cover nearly the entire image area, enabling enhanced subject tracking and capture of fast-moving subjects anywhere on the screen, as well as improved scene recognition and subject size detection. Also featured are 25 higher-speed, higher-precision contrast-detection AF points.
Fast Hybrid AF provides extremely accurate focusing and smooth subject tracking even while shooting movies. You can now adjust AF tracking duration** and AF drive speed** as well.
When your subject is moving fast, 11fps continuous shooting with superior AF tracking performance ensures you capture the decisive moment. This feature makes the most of the superb tracking performance of Sony's wide-area 179 phase-detection AF points to accurately track your subject anywhere on the screen. Three settings are provided: 11fps (hi), 6fps (mid) and 2.5fps (low).
Even when capturing a subject partially turned away from the camera with a shallow depth of field, the face is sharply focused thanks to extremely accurate Eye AF. A green frame appears over the prioritized eye when focus has been achieved.
Now more accurate than ever, due to advances in the phase-detection AF, Lock-on AF enhances tracking of moving subjects by adjusting target frame size to match subject characteristics and ensuring usage of the optimal AF point and all times.
Matching the focus mode to the subject assures super-sharp results. You can choose the AF-A**, AF-S, AF-C, DMF or MF mode. The α6000 is the first E-mount camera to offer AF-A, and displays the active AF points even in AF-C mode.
Create images of astounding beauty that surpass your expectations with Sony's newly developed 24.3-effective-megapixel APS-C image sensor. The same size as found in most DSLRs, this sophisticated sensor offers high resolution, high sensitivity in dimly lit environments and strikingly attractive foreground and background defocusing. You'll enjoy the increased light collecting efficiency of a gapless no-chip lens structure, extremely low noise throughout a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25600, and superb corner-to-corner image quality with lifelike colour, supreme detail and smooth tonal gradations that reveal every nuance of your scene.
Astonishingly fast, Sony's sophisticated BIONZ X image processing engine reproduces textures and details in real time as seen by the naked eye. The resulting images are remarkably realistic with especially rich tonal gradations and a natural three-dimensional appearance. Whether shooting still images or movies, noise is nearly imperceptible thanks to further advanced area-specific noise reduction. Detail reproduction technology delivers more finely detailed textures and diffraction-reducing technology optimizes the performance of any lens you mount to enable advances such as finer details and small aperture settings.
Press the MOVIE button to start recording beautiful movies that are notable for their sharpness and lack of noise. Record at 60p/50p or 60i/50i for super-smooth results or 24p/25p(NTSC/PAL) to recreate the look of traditional cinema. You can also enjoy clean HDMI output to monitors, use P/A/S/M modes the achieve maximum control over how images look, and zoom with extra clarity, courtesy of Clear Image Zoom.
Controls are refined for intuitive DSLR-style operation while viewing scenes through the viewfinder. The mode dial enables quick selection of shooting modes with your thumb, while the control dial and control wheel make it easy to set various parameters.
Button customization lets you shoot just the way you like for greater speed and convenience. You can assign any of the 43 functions* to any of 7 buttons (including 2 dedicated custom buttons), and assign up to 12 functions to the Fn button for quick access.
Shooting comfort is enhanced by an LCD screen that smoothly tilts to accommodate everything from low to high-angle shooting. This tilting flexibility combines with the camera's compact mobility to greatly expand your shooting options.
View every scene clearly and naturally on the bright and accurate OLED Tru-Finder viewfinder, which offers 100% frame coverage. The new optical system with four double aspherical lenses provides a wide viewing angle of approx. 33°ree; and clear visibility from corner to corner. Sharp details, rich tonal gradation and high contrast are yours in both dark and light environments, thanks to an advanced OLED design that lets you more faithfully preview defocusing, exposure and other effects to more easily achieve desired results. You can also fine-tune the focus by taking advantage of MF Assist and helpful Peaking function, as well as adjust brightness in five steps to match shooting environment.
