Shoot in 0.06 seconds: the world’s fastest autofocus

The perfect moment, captured

The α6000’s Fast Hybrid AF combines the strengths of both phase- and contrast-detection autofocus. 179 phase detection points (covering almost the entire image) and high-speed contrast-detection function.

Quality starts with the sensor

More area for more detailed images

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, resulting in 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.

Exmor™ CMOS sensor

Convenient companion

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.
