a6000 Mirrorless camera
Test the limits of your creativity with the premium
mirrorless DSLR that’s focused on speed. Every artistic
shot you take—from fast-action to candid—benefits
from 24.3MP detail and the world’s fastest auto focus.
For capturing crucial moments that go by in a blink, the
A6000 can shoot 11 photos in one second. It’s compact
and easy to use, too. Two quick-access dials let you
change settings on the fly. Very intuitive.
Key Features
All the quality in half the size & weight of other DSLRs
The α6000 is a super compact Mirrorless camera that’s about half the size and weight of a typical
DSLR, yet it has the same size APS-C sensor as most DSLRs. The interchangeable lenses and
E-mount system make the α6000 more versatile than almost any other camera on the market.
World’s fastest auto focus6 with 179 AF points and 11Fps
Never miss the moment - the α6000 realizes 11fps continuous shooting with AF (Auto Focus)
tracking by making the most of the wide-area 179-point phase-detection AF sensor. Even when
dealing with a moving subject the α6000’s superb moving-subject tracking performance ensures
you get the shot during still or video capture.
Capture life in high resolution with 24MP APS-C sensor
You get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements thanks to the newly developed 24.3
megapixel Exmor® APS HD CMOS sensor. It’s higher resolution than most DSLRs and adopts the
same gapless on-chip lens structure as the α7R for ultimate image quality and light sensitivity
Better Images through BIONZ® X processing
The new BIONZ® X image processor faithfully reproduces textures and details in real time via extra
high-speed processing capabilities delivering true-to-life images - as seen by the naked eye. It
enables greater natural detail, richer tonal gradations, lower noise and more realistic images
whether you shoot stills or video.
Instant sharing via smartphone with Wi-Fi® and NFC
Wi-Fi™ connectivity allows you to control your camera with your compatible Smartphone or
Tablet and the PlayMemories Camera Apps™.5 Frame your image on your device’s LCD and
control the camera shutter. You can even transfer the images taken directly to your mobile
device for quick editing and uploading - sharing has never been easier.
Connectivity has been simplified to one-touch utilizing NFC (near field communication). Simply
touch the camera to the compatible NFC enabled device to connect.
Stunning low light photos with ISO range of 100-25600
With 20% higher sensitivity than the NEX-7 due to the newly developed Exmor® CMOS sensor and
BIONZ® X processor, you get stunning detail in in low light from ISO range 100 – 25000. And for an
additional burst of light, the α6000 features a pop-up flash and a standard hot shoe for additional
flash accessories.
Easy and intuitive controls help you shoot like a pro
Despite its small size, the α6000 gives you full DSLR control and immediate access to the functions
you need to shoot like a pro. Two dials on top and a rear-mounted control wheel allow quick
selection of shooting modes and camera settings. In addition to the Fn button, there’s seven
customizable buttons, which can be assigned any of 474 functions.
Record Full HD 1080/24/60P video3
Make movie magic with Full HD 1920 x 1080 video in cinematic 24p, or capture fast action at
incredible 60p and 60i frame-rates.3 Made even easier with the α6000’s 179 point AF (auto
focus) system – tracking moving subjects is not a problem. Selectable in-camera – Blu-ray quality
- AVCHD™ or simple and easier upload to the web - MP4 codecs are available. For serious
videographers, uncompressed clean-screen video files to external recording devices is possible
via the HDMI® connection
What you see is what you get with an OLED Viewfinder
There’s never been anything quite like the Tru-Finder™ OLED electronic viewfinder. The OLED
EVF features a new optical system with four double aspherical lenses that deliver 100% frame
coverage and a wide viewing angle (approx. 33°) for clear visibility from corner to corner
dramatically improving visibility. View every scene in rich tonal detail and gradations on the high
contrast 1.4M dot OLED EVF. The viewfinder faithfully displays what will appear in your recording,
including the effects of your camera settings, so you can accurately monitor the results. There are
many advantages to electronic viewfinders, including the ability to display the effects of various
camera settings before you take the picture, the use of MF Assist, Peaking function for fine-tuning
focus and previewing shot
3.0" 921k dot LCD tilts for high and low angle framing
The tiltable 3.0” (921k dots) Xtra Fine™ LCD Display makes it easy to photograph over crowds or
low to capture pets eye to eye by swinging up approx. 90° and down approx. 45°. Easily scroll
through menus and preview life thanks to WhiteMagic™ technology that dramatically increases
visibility in bright daylight. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while
enabling easy focusing operation.
Enhance your camera and creativity with Camera Apps
Personalize your camera by adding new features of your choice with PlayMemories Camera
Apps™. Find apps to fit your shooting style from portraits, detailed close-ups, sports, time lapse,
motion shot and much more. Use apps that shoot, share and save photos using Wi-Fi® that make
it easy to control and view your camera from smartphone, and post photos directly to Facebook
or backup images to the cloud without connecting to a computer.5
Fast Hybrid AF (Auto Focus) with 179 phase-detection points
Enhanced Fast Hybrid auto focus combines speedy phase-detection AF with highly accurate
contrast-detection AF. Fast Hybrid AF has been accelerated through a new Spatial Object
Detection algorithm, to achieve among the fastest autofocusing performance of any camera
(0.06 second). First, 179 densely placed focal plane phase-detection AF points swiftly and
efficiently move the lens to bring the subject into focus. Then contrast-detection AF with wide AF
coverage fine-tunes the focusing in the blink of an eye.
Low light situations not a problem
Built-in pop-up flash in a compact camera body is perfect when an extra burst of light is needed
to get the shot. Combine with high ISO sensitivity - from 100 to 16000 ISO - to enable shooting in
just about any setting.
New Eye AF control
Thanks to extremely accurate eye detection, faces will be sharply focused - even when
capturing a subject partially turned away from the camera and with a shallow depth of field
– as the camera can prioritize a single pupil. A green frame appears over the prioritized eye
when focus has been achieved for easy confirmation. Eye AF can be used when the function
is assigned to a customizable button, allowing users to instantly activate it depending on the
4K Still image output by HDMI8 or Wi-Fi® for viewing on 4K TVs
Enjoy Ultra High Definition slide shows directly from the camera to a compatible 4K television. The
α6000 converts images for optimized 4K image size playback (8MP). Enjoy expressive rich colors
and amazing detail like never before. Images can be viewed via an optional HDMI®.
