Quicker autofocus than a DSLR

Shoot better with the α6000: superb 24MP quality, world’s quickest autofocus and very portable. Add an OLED Tru-Finder™, manual controls and a range of lenses, for a superior alternative to bulky DSLRs.

Shoot in 0.06 seconds: the world’s fastest autofocus

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.

Quality starts with the sensor

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.

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™2 CMOS sensor

The new 24.3 MP APS HD sensor features optimised light gathering (through angled micro-lenses) and improved light sensitivity.

Advanced processor

The BIONZ X™ image processor ensures images of the highest quality, and provides the muscle needed for ultra-fast AF.

Amazing shots in low light

The extremely high ISO range lets you shoot natural, nuanced photos in dim light or indoors without a flash.

At 0.06 seconds, capture flying water drops and fleeting smiles.

The world’s fastest autofocus makes the α6000 one of the most versatile interchangeable-lens camera available; at a mere 0.06 seconds, you’re assured of getting the perfect shot in any situation from family events to sports to 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 the world’s fastest AF available to capture your subject at the exact moment you intend.

Ultra-precise 179 AF points for greater coverage.

More autofocus points mean a better chance of capturing a perfectly sharp image, and with a class-leading 179 AF points, the α6000 provides extensive frame coverage and continuous, precise location of your subject—no matter where in the frame they may be.

11 fps continuous shooting with AF tracking

Capturing an impressive 11 photos a second wouldn’t mean much if they were blurry. That’s where the α6000 excels; you get a very high frames-per-second (fps) rate while the superior AF tracking ensures your selected subject is crisp and clear.

Smooth AF enhances your movies

The α6000’s impressive AF capabilities are not just limited to still photos. It uses the same phase-detection priority to ensure fast focusing and smooth tracking to give a professional polish to your most demanding video projects.

Stop the action, not the thrills

Freeze your subject at an amazing 11 fps for dramatic shots that capture the exact moment or expression you’re looking for.

Shoot cinematically

With Full 1080 HD at 60p or 24p, you can make the aesthetic choice to capture film-like motion in your videos.

AF features for any scene

Eye AF, Lock-on AF and more let you delegate that aspect to the camera, freeing you to concentrate on the content of the scene.

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.

Snap, tap and share.

Wi-Fi and NFC (Near Field Communication) connectivity make it simple to show, and share, your genius. It requires no complicated setup and—in one step—enables the transfer of photos or movies to NFC-compatible televisions as well as Android smartphones or tablets.

Sony’s new a6000 is an update of the Sony NEX-6 , a very well-regarded CSC that managed to stay the course for a good four years. That it lasted so long is testament to how special it was, given the brief shelf-life of new models nowadays.

Pocket Lint

All told the Sony A6000 is an echo of its earlier NEX-6 model, making it a sensible balance of small and light but also powerful and capable of producing great images. We love the built-in electronic viewfinder, tilt-angle LCD screen and the step forward in autofocus ability.

Photography BLOG

The Sony A6000 is a full-featured, responsive compact system camera that delivers excellent images in a variety of situations, all at a very competitive price that significantly undercuts its main rivals.


The Sony Alpha A6000 offers an impressive range of features, including a good electronic viewfinder, and a tilting 3inch screen. The 24 megapixel sensor is new, and noise is well controlled up to ISO3200, with the camera delivering bright saturated photos with reliable exposure.

A superb mid-ranger that puts the “compact” into compact system camera

TechRadar UK

Sony has come within a whisker of creating the perfect CSC in the shape of the A6000, with just a few niggles stopping it being very good indeed. Sony has come within a whisker of creating the perfect CSC in the shape of the A6000, with just a few niggles stopping it being very good indeed.

Sony Alpha A6000: Hits a home run for quality, performance, features and price

Digitalcamera HQ

With an interchangeable lens mount and compact design, it’s no wonder that this model is our best overall. It comes with the perfect wide aperture and focal length combination that makes it easy for you to shoot in a range of different situations.

Digital Camera World

Can a camera launched back in 2014 and superseded by no fewer than five new models still be competitive? It’s true that the A6000’s specs now look distinctly old hat compared to what’s come along since, but only in a couple of key areas.

DP Review

The a6000 brings Sony's latest interface improvements and enhanced JPEG processing to a well-featured, competitively-priced mid-range camera. Its stand-out features are its comprehensive video controls and continuous autofocus performance unprecedented at this price.

I bought this camera for its compact size so I could use it for holiday snaps instead of lugging my full frame DSLR around. The camera feels robust and is easy to use once you get used to the menu, the 24MP sensor gives a good image resolution which is satisfactory for my holiday snaps.

Having had lots of cameras in 57 years and a few Sony cameras during that time one professional, so as to my review. I find with the lens that I purchased this camera is nicely balance and the feel of all the controls are well placed .having taken about 1000 photos in the few months I am well please...

The Camera takes Great Pictures, I got the Kit of two lenses 16-55 mm and 55-200mm Lens, takes great pics love the apperture ones with faded background, on Video have a small right side dedicated rec bitton, it films in 3 modes MP4 1000 X 1080 PM Which you could use the app to transfer the files via...


I have been a user of Sony full frame cameras for 7 years. Early in the pandemic I had an opportunity to buy a Sony A6500. I was tempted by the idea of a lighter camera and lens as it appealed for when I am out walking all day taking photos. I was amazed by how good the results were.


I'm really happy with this camera. As a beginner in photography it has more than enough capability and is still a fantastic buy in 2020. After a week of use I feel that I can use it competently and also there are many videos and tutorials on YouTube for this camera which helps when starting out.

Wex Photo Video

I use the camera for product photography and have no complaints so far. The screen being tiltable is great and the size and weight is also a bonus. Only thing that stands out as a neucance so far is the battery life but this is a common issue with mirrorless cameras, and buying an extra few...


I bought a6000 a few weeks ago. I find it easy to use and experiment with the different functions. Great size and easy to carry.

Wilkinson Cameras

I was recommended this camera from a friend and have not been disappointed! Fantastic design, making the transition from my compact camera very easy as the buttons were in similar locations. The camera is relatively lightweight and neat to carry.


I bought this a couple of weeks ago. It is very light for an interchangeable lens camera and is easy to use. The screen on the back can also be angled to avoid glare.


Absolutely love this beauty, nothing comes close to the focus and speed of this camera, I own a Sony a7r and wanted another small camera that fits all my lenses so stuck with Sony, my 90mm G macro lense is mint with the a6000. Not much more I can say really about this camera.

Perfect for all you Aviation experts out there. I bought the Sony 210 telephoto lens with on built Stability and it is great for snapping those high up and low Aircraft. Auto focus is so fast on a clear day. I have tried Bridge(fuji xs1) 4/3rds(panny g5) and other SLRS but this Camera fits all my needs...superb.

Having previously used a NEX-5R, this is a little larger but worth the upgrade for the electronic viewfinder, the improved autofocus and the clearer menu system. The only real downside, and one I was aware of before making the purchase, is the loss of the electronic level, something I'd never had before the 5R but found surprisingly useful. It makes a great combination with the 24/1.8 CZ lens.
