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.

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.

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

Amateur Photographer

Sony Alpha A6000 / 6000 Mirrorless Camera After four years, it is only now that Sony has updated its NEX-6 – one of the most popular compact system cameras the market has ever seen – in the form of the Alpha 6000.

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

Digitalcamera HQ

The best part of this item is that it is compact and light. This means users can carry it around without it being a burden, unlike other DSLR cameras .

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.


Despite small annoyances, the Sony Alpha 6000 is a great overall camera for more advanced photographers who want something smaller than a dSLR, especially if they need the continuous- shooting speed.

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...


Upgraded from a5100 to a6500. Well worth the upgrade. Now have choice of viewfinder or screen. still love being able to focus by touching screen for focus point. Now I dont have to go through menus to get favourite adjustments - just click on 'c' or other buttons.

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.

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.

Clifton Cameras

The quality of the pictures are outstanding the auto focus is unbelievable it’s so quick, the camera is light and very well made as you would expect from Sony.

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.
