Real-time Tracking

Follow your subject with reliable precision

Keeping active subjects in constant, steady focus is absolutely vital to capturing every important moment, whether you're covering a sporting event or documenting everyday life. Sony's sophisticated AI-based subject-tracking algorithms won't let you down, processing massive volumes of spatial data at high speed and in real time.

Real-time Eye AF for human

Real-time Eye AF provides continuous eye tracking when shooting portraits in motion. You can prioritise either the left or the right eye, and it works even when the face is partially hidden, backlit or facing downwards.

Real-time Eye AF for animal

Sony's innovative eye-detection algorithms have been adapted to animal as well as human, to give you sharply focused pet portraits and beautiful wildlife shots.

Autofocus you can rely on

Wide AF area, super-fast acquisition speed and persistent tracking

The camera's wide AF coverage is based on dense arrays of 425 phase-detection points and 425 contrast-detection points, for greatly increased detection accuracy. Fast performance from the latest-generation processing engine helps achieve a remarkable 0.02-second AF acquisition speed, while advanced algorithms work to predict your subject's future location.

Fast continuous shooting at up to 11 frames per second, with AF/AE

Impressively speedy internal processing and the high-capacity buffer memory mean you can fire off continuous shots at up to 11fps with after-view or 8fps for real-time preview, with minimal display lag. You can take around 77 shots in JPEG (Standard) format in one continuous burst.

Image of Silent continuous shooting at up to 8fps

Silent continuous shooting at up to 8fps

Silent shooting is helpful in situations where noise would be distracting, such as at live performances or when taking animal portraits. The α6100 can shoot continuously without shutter noise at up to 8fps with AF/AE tracking, even in AF-C mode, and with Real-time Eye AF or with Real-time Tracking.

Uncompromising image quality

Superior image resolution and natural-looking textures

The APS-C sensor uses copper wiring for better conductivity and enhanced circuit processing to help optimise light-collection efficiency. In conjunction with the latest-generation image processing engine, this enables better image resolution and natural-looking textures.

Image of Cleaner images in dimly lit settings

Cleaner images in dimly lit settings

Improved noise suppression produces cleaner images in dark settings where high-sensitivity shooting is required. The native ISO sensitivity reaches a maximum ISO 32000, with expanded ISO sensitivity up to ISO 51200 for stills. Noise reduction is particularly effective in the frequently used medium-to-high sensitivity range.

Lifelike skin tones

The skin tone feature inherited from our latest, highly acclaimed full-frame cameras captures the natural beauty of human skin tones, helping you take portraits that look their best.

Image of Realistic colour reproduction

Realistic colour reproduction

Natural-looking images with improved colour reproduction better match what you see in real life, with more vibrant colours of flowers and similar objects as well as suppression of jaggies and false colours.

Expressive movie-making for anyone

Fast Hybrid AF for movies

Phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF working together

Fast Hybrid AF brings high speed, accuracy and tracking performance to meet the stringent autofocus demands of 4K movies. More effective use of the focal plane phase-detection system enables more stable AF, while the contrast-detection AF system contributes to overall accuracy. Smooth, steady focus is maintained even when an object crosses in front of your subject.

Image of High-resolution 4K movie recording

High-resolution 4K movie recording

Full pixel readout, with no pixel binning, processes approximately 2.4 times as much information as is required for 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) recording, to produce movies with extraordinary detail, depth and realism.

Image of Touch tracking for movies

Touch tracking for movies

The camera's Touch Tracking feature provides smooth, continuous focus tracking of your subject, and it can be activated with a simple touch of the display screen.

Image of Expand your movie-making options

Expand your movie-making options

The camera can directly record movies in slow motion (up to 5x) and quick motion (up to 60x), without the need for PC post-processing.
