Quicker Autofocus than a DSLR

The Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera is a versatile and advanced mirrorless camera featuring a 24.3MP APS-C-sized Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor to produce high-resolution still images and Full HD movies with marked low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO ISO Exposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)25600. Beyond notable imaging traits, the image processor also lends itself to continuous shooting up to 11 fps and an intelligent Fast Hybrid AF system that uses both phase- and contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). -detection methods to quickly and accurately acquire focus.

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 colour

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.


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, fast 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 noiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor. in specific areas to ensure sharp images. All these advantages apply equally to still images or video.


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.


Fast Hybrid AF

The advanced Fast Hybrid AF enables more scenes to be focused via phase-detection only (reducing reliance on the contrast-detection mode), delivering fast AF available to capture your subject at the exact moment you intend.


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. ExposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. Control compensates for overly bright/dim scenes, Focus Zoom accurately enlarges a chosen detail, and Display Mode reveals histograms and more.
