Capture special moments and portraits to remember and share. Thanks to stunning image quality and speed based on technology developed for our full-frame models, you can leave the hard work to the camera. The α6100 ensures you'll never miss an instant.
Unparalleled AF performance for breathtaking shots
Fast, accurate autofocus captures fleeting moments in stunning detail, thanks to a combination of innovative technologies. A total of 425 phase-detection AF points work in conjunction with contrast-detection AF to achieve a remarkable 0.02-sec. acquisition speed, while High-density AF Tracking Technology reliably follows even erratically moving subjects.
Real-time Tracking maintains steady focus on your subject
When you're tracking a fast-moving subject, the camera's automatic motion tracker uses an AI subject recognition algorithm that draws on colour, pattern (brightness), subject distance (depth) and face/eye information to recognise and maintain focus on your subject.
Reliable Real-time Eye AF for better portrait shots
The camera's Real-time Eye AF system detects and autofocuses on the eyes of your subjects when you half-press the shutter, and you can even prioritise your subject's left or right eye. When AF-C is set it maintains a stable focus even when the face is partially hidden or backlit, or the subject is facing downwards.
Real-time Eye AF for animal
The subject-recognition technology used in Real-time Eye AF has been adapted to support animal as well as human. When activated, it provides fast, precise, automatic detection and tracking of animals' eyes, for better pet portraits and wildlife shots.
High-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking
Capture every instant of fast-moving action with continuous shooting at up to 11fps, or 8fps in silent-shutter mode, and for up to 77 frames. Display lag has been minimised so, even in the live-view mode, up to 8fps can be precisely captured. Continuously shot images can conveniently be displayed in groups in playback mode.
Accurate autofocus even in dim lighting
Highly accurate autofocus is possible even in dark settings, thanks to the camera's sophisticated AF algorithm. High AF sensitivity means reliable AF-S autofocus all the way down to EV -2.
Versatile touch operations
The camera's LCD panel supports intuitive touch operations such as Touch Pad (to smoothly move the focus point), Touch Focus (to set the focus point), Touch Shutter (to release the shutter), and Touch Tracking (to activate Real-Time AF).
Focus Magnifier for finer focus adjustment in both MF/AF modes
When extra-accurate focus is called for, such as when you're taking macro shots, you can display a magnified view of the general area you want to focus on. You can then finely adjust the exact point of focus using the touchscreen or the focus point selector.
Easy manual focus with clearly visible peaking
When you're using manual focus the camera will colour-highlight the most sharply focused section of the entire image area. Selectable high contrast peaking colours include blue, red, yellow and white, giving you clear visibility of in-focus areas when you're doing the delicate focusing required for macro or portrait shooting.
Creative Style and Picture Effect
With the camera's Creative Style feature you can choose settings like "Vivid" or "Portrait" to create a specific look for your photo, and fine-tune an image's exposure, contrast, colour saturation and sharpness. Picture Effect provides effects like "Partial Colour" and "Miniature" to add some creative flair to your shots.
4K movie recording in high-bit-rate XAVC S format
Super 35mm format, 4K movie recording with full pixel readout and no pixel binning allows oversampling of around 2.4x the image information needed for 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160). By downscaling from the equivalent of 6K resolution, captured videos benefit from even more realism and depth. The high-bit-rate (up to 100Mbps for 4K 30p/24p) XAVC S video codec ensures professional-quality images in a consumer-friendly format.
Steady, precise AF tracking for better movies
Fast Hybrid AF provides high speed, accuracy and excellent tracking performance to meet the stringent autofocus demands of 4K movies. AF tracking sensitivity can be adjusted for either stable focus or responsive refocusing, depending on the nature of the scene, and Touch Tracking lets you initiate tracking of a moving subject simply by touching the LCD screen.
Slow and Quick motion and high-speed 120fps recording
Slow motion (at up to 5x) and quick motion (at up to 60x) video can be produced in-camera, with no post-processing required, at up to Full HD resolution. Additionally, high bit-rate (up to 100Mbps) and high frame-rate (up to 120p) Full HD recordings can be used to create slow-motion movies in post-production.
180°-tiltable LCD screen
The 3.0-type LCD monitor offers 921k-dot resolution for a clear view of what you're shooting. It's designed to tilt upward a full 180° and downward by 74° for easy framing of vlogs and selfies and more convenient low-angle and high-angle shooting.
One-touch remote, One-touch sharing, location information
The One-touch remote feature lets you use your mobile device as a viewfinder and remote control. One-touch sharing allows you to transfer photos and videos to a mobile device for social media sharing. The camera can also use your mobile phone's location data via Bluetooth to geo-tag your images.
