Stunning detail at lightning speed.

The world's fastest AF performance

Capture every subject clearly with unparalleled precision at record speed, thanks to Sony's newly advanced Fast Hybrid AF with vastly improved 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 the world's fastest AF (0.06 sec.)*.

The world's fastest AF performance

179 wide-area focal plane phase-detection AF points

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 for movies

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.

11fps continuous shooting with AF tracking

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).

11fps continuous shooting with AF tracking

Eye AF

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.

Improved Lock-on AF

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.

AF mode

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.

Reality in breathtaking detail

24.3-megapixel Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor

Create images of astounding beauty that surpass your expectations with Sony's newly developed 24.3-effective-megapixel APS-C image sensor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned 3 Days After Purchase "Bought Tuesday, returned Friday for full refund. Got the error message ""cannot recognize lens attach it properly"" while switching between modes to learn the camera. This camera has been around some years and this still has not been addressed by Sony. None of the help suggested by Dr. Google, of which there were pages and pages for this apparently common problem, worked. I'm just lucky it happened to me so soon after purchase so I could return it. No hassles at all about this from Henry's. Henry's would swap the camera and lens out for a brand new (again) set but I decided I might not be so lucky to get all my money back next time."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good and blazing fast "By camera standards, this is an old machine. If dogs age 7 years for each human year, cameras age at about 30 years per human year. At the time of writing that makes this little camera about 75! Don't be fooled, it's still quick on its feet. I'm a long-time, serious photographer. I prize small, light, portable and reliable without compromising quality. I use it mostly for stills but I can see it'd be really good for action. There is so much good here: it is really fast at pretty much everything except powering up. It focuses blazing fast and accurately (faster than most SLRs). It exposes reliably. It shoots a lot of frames per second, fast if that's what you need (faster than most SLRs). The sensor is a good one, lots of dynamic range, good colours, and it's not set to be over-saturated. It has good high ISO performance. It is actually pretty good with batteries (for this kind of camera). I can run all day and shoot about 400 batteries in the real world on the Sony battery. I bought some spares just in case, and you might consider the same if you see yourself shooting a lot. It's small and light, nice in the hand. The EVF is good, if not great. It's exceptional value (quality/cost). Thus risk of loss, damage, or moisture is a little more manageable. Sony makes the sensors for itself and a lot of the camera world. It seems to me that with this generation of camera, sensor technology reached a mature level and hasn't improved much since. Up until 2012, there was steady improvement in speed, accuracy or dynamic range. Not so much since. I don't use the built-in flash or use it for video, so I can't comment on these. No product is perfect. I (like so many) find the menus to be mind boggling. There are a lot of buttons and their layout seems a little hap-hazard to me. And some of the features are not properly named or documented. It takes time to get to know this little guy. As well, it is slow to start-up which I find annoying. I've missed shots due to that. dSLRs normally start immediately. Let's talk lenses. Mine came with the 16-50 OSS lens. The OSS works well, the lens is small and convenient. It covers a terrifically useful range and thanks to Sony for taking the initiative to give a really useful 16mm at the end. It makes a difference to me. It is convenient but not that great if you're serious. It has poor contrast, some ghosting, tonnes of distortion at the wide angle end and adequate resolution throughout at best. It doesn't vignette or bend horizons (after auto-correction). It is a compromised lens allowing a good starting point at an affordable price. Just don't be surprised or underestimate what the camera can do based on this. That being said, let's look at where you could go from the kit lens. Sony offers a limited but useful set of lenses. Don't kid yourself, it's not extensive. Check out the range if you're serious. If you're really serious and are OK with manual focus (the a6000 supports this pretty well) and aperture priority, there are tons of adapters to use lots of other lenses (which may be in your collection). Options are many... It's not perfect, but it's pretty darn good. The a6000 is the granddaddy of the APS rangefinders and it's still pretty good well into its retirement years."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Little Camera I recently replaced my NEX-6 with the a6000 and it is every bit as good as I heard it was. I was tempted by Fuji but the Sony is lighter. My only issue is with the 16-50mm kit lens it could and should be better. Five stars for the camera and four stars with this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mind Blowing Technology "I have had an a6000 for a couple of weeks now, and it is amazing. It has the fastest, smartest and most intuitive autofocus I've ever seen. If you want fast, this is the fastest camera - with 11fps and face detection/object tracking that is faster than my a7, a7r, a77 or a99's. I find myself using it more than my pro cameras. It allows you to post to Facebook or Twitter straight from the camera. It has an ""eye - lock "" autofocus that allows you to prioritize an eyeball (especially when using ver fast lenses, like my 55mm f1.8 Zeiss. It has object and face tracking that is so accurate because the phase detection points cover most of the viewing area. I have done some YouTube demos that will impress you very much. Because of this focus capability, this is a great video camera as well. Only drawback is that it doesn't have a Mic input, which really limits your options. However, you can put in a Sony Hotshoe Microphone. Small and lightweight, it accepts all of my Alpha lenses with an EA-4 adapter. It also allows me to mount my Canon lenses (with a 'Metabones' adapter). I can't say enough about this camera. It makes photography exciting again, and I think that the technology this thing holds is going to be a game-changer."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Logical upgrade from the Nex 3 This is an intuitive camera. I have had it for a week and all of my lens respond quickly and accurately in a fraction of the time that the Nex 3 took to focus. Well worth the upgrade.
