Compact and Lightweight Mirrorless DSLR
The a6000 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 a6000 more versatile than almost any other camera on the market.

High Resolution 24MP APS-C Sensor
Get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements thanks to the newly developed 24.3 megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor. It has higher resolution than most DSLRs and adopts the same gapless on-chip lens structure as the a7R 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.

Ultra-fast Response
Capture the perfect moment – the a6000 realises 11 frames per second 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 a6000's superb moving-subject tracking performance ensures you get the shot during still or video capture.









Easy and Intuitive Controls







Despite its small size, the a6000 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 47*4



functions.









Instantly Connect via NFC and Wi-Fi







Wi-Fi connectivity allows you to control your camera with your



compatible smartphone or tablet and the PlayMemories Camera Apps5. Frame



your shot on your device's LCD, snap the shutter, and then transfer the



images directly to your mobile device for quick editing and uploading.



And with NFC (near field communication) technology, connecting has never



been easier. Simply tap the camera to an NFC-enabled device, and you're



ready to shoot and share without wires or hassles.









Stunning Low Light Photos







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 a6000 features a pop-up flash and a standard hot shoe for



additional flash accessories.









Full HD Output







Capture Full 1920 x 1080 HD uncompressed clean-screen video files with



external recording devices via an HDMI connection in 60p and 60i frame



rates. Selectable in-camera AVCHD codec frame rates include super-smooth



60p, standard 60i or cinematic 24p, while MP4 codec is also available



for smaller files for easier upload to the web.









What You See is What You Get







View every scene in rich detail on the high contrast 1.4M dot Tru-Finder



OLED EVF. It delivers 100% frame coverage with an approximately 33°



viewing angle for corner-to-corner visibility. Not only that, the



viewfinder displays what will appear in your recordings, including the



effects of your camera settings so you can fine-tune focus and preview



your shots before you take the picture.

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 computer5.









Cover Every Shooting Angle







Snap shots high over crowds or down low to capture a pet's eye view with



the tiltable 3.0" (921k dots) Xtra Fine LCD Display that boasts a range



of movement of approximately up 90° and down 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.









DSLR-like Focusing Speed







Enhanced Fast Hybrid auto focus combines speedy phase-detection AF with



highly accurate contrast-detection AF, which has been accelerated



through a new Spatial Object Detection algorithm, to achieve among the



fastest autofocusing performance of any full-frame camera. First,



phase-detection AF with 179 densely placed phase-detection AF points



swiftly and efficiently moves the lens to bring the subject nearly into



focus. Then contrast-detection AF with wide AF coverage fine-tunes the



focusing in the blink of an eye.

Refurb should be in the title
This is just flogging a dead horse now.

Cracking camera when it came out, real game changer but cmon. This is so long in the tooth and overpriced compared to newer better models nowadays.
It's getting on a bit, but it's aged better than many, the lack of 4k video will worry some, but for stills it's still pretty damn good and the newer ones aren't really at this price level.

Yeah it is getting on, however, at the price it's being sold at with a 12 month warranty I don't see a problem.
6 year old camera now this one
Op, you couldn't space out the description a little more could you?

Hi, can you point to a better (and newer one) that matches (and hopefully excels) the specs (shutter speed, quality of pictures, plethora of lenses, compact size, etc). I understand that the price may be higher. I am not trolling, I genuinely would like to know what the market has got to offer nowadays.

Haha, this copy and paste stuff. Will edit
So what camera do people suggest getting instead of this one? Seeing a lot of people saying not to get it but not offering any suggestions as to what to get instead.

I was last year in the market for a new camera and this Sony was one of choices but, after careful consideration, I bought a Panasonic DMC-GX80. It's only £369 as a kit at John Lewis and has 2 years guarantee.

Nothing wrong with this camera at all for the price, I've had one for three years it's a beast of a camera only lacking 4k. Cheapest alternative would something like an Fuji XT100 but Fuji lenses are eye wateringly expensive. With Sony there is a decent range of quality glass at surprisingly affordable prices from third parties like Sigma, Samyang and Tamron as well as Sony themselves, including the whole FE range.

The Fuji X-T100 is a good camera but it's 4K video is practically unusable due to it's 15fps speed.

I also recently purchased a GX80 new with kit lens, got it for £310 with a friend's work discount.

I spent a huge amount of time debating a Sony A6*** or the GX80, in the end allot of points swung it.

1. The stabilisation on the Panasonic is far better.

2. The lens selection is far far better on M43 and when you think ideally you want a few. One wide angle (12-15mm at around 1.4 - 2.0), then a 25mm at 1.7, then a telephoto of 200m+ to cover several scenarios. Its expensive and less choice on APS-C. Even hunting around for best used deal, buying all those lens types for m43 still cost me £360. Would cost much more on APS-C.

3. GX80 has extra features such as 4K at same price point.

Sure, an APS-C sensor is larger but its really not a huge difference. Sonys A5*** and A6*** have a terrible reputation for overheating. The big plus is auto focus though, the Sony is a beast at that.

Drop in price from £359 to £349
Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mk.II for me, when faced with the same choice a few months ago.
Great camera! I just had my old one converted to infrared but I haven't been able to go out to use it properly!
I want an A6400 so badly.
