Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Camera

Ignite your creativity with the Sony Alpha a6000 24.3MP Mirrorless Digital Camera. This camera features the world's fastest auto focus which allows you to capture instant shots from fast action to candid. You can capture amazing shots and get incredible detail that makes for gorgeous enlargements thanks to its newly developed 24.3 megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor. Being compact in size doesn't affect the performance of the Sony Alpha a6000; for starters consider some its functional features. Two dials on top along with a rear mounted control wheel allow you to select your preferred shooting mode and camera settings. It includes seven customizable buttons which can be assigned to any of the 47 functions. Its electronic viewfinder display shows you what will appear in your recordings including the effects of your camera settings so you can fine tune and preview your shots before you take them.

24.3-Megapixel APS-C Image Sensor

Create images of astounding beauty that surpass your expectations with the Sony a6000’s newly developed 24.3- megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor. The same size as most DSLRs, this sensor offers high sensitivity in dimly lit environments and strikingly attractive foreground and background defocusing. You’ll enjoy the increased light collecting efficiency of a gapless on-chip lens structure, extremely low noise throughout a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25600, and superb corner-to-corner image quality with lifelike color, supreme detail and smooth tonal gradations that reveal every nuance of your scene.

BIONZ X Image Processor

Astonishingly fast, Sony’s sophisticated BIONZ X image processor reproduces textures and details in real time as seen by the naked eye. The resulting images in the Sony Alpha a6000 mirrorless camera are remarkably realistic with especially rich tonal gradations and a natural three-dimensional appearance. Visual noise is nearly imperceptible thanks to further advanced area-specific noise reduction. Detail reproduction technology delivers more detailed textures while diffraction-reducing technology optimizes the performance of any lens you mount to enable advances such as finer details at small aperture settings.

179 AF Points

In addition to 25 higher-speed, the Sony Alpha a6000 mirrorless has higher-precision contrast-detection AF (Fast Intelligent AF) points, with an improved Fast Hybrid AF system features the world's fastest 179 extremely accurate phase-detection AF points that cover nearly the entire image area for superior auto focusing. They permit enhanced subject tracking plus the capture of fast-moving subjects anywhere on the screen, as well as improved scene recognition and subject size detection.

Full HD Movies

Press the MOVIE button on your Sony a6000 to start recording beautiful movies that are notable for their sharpness and lack of visual “noise” in your choice of 60p, 60i or 24p. New improved Fast Hybrid AF provides remarkably fast and accurate auto-focusing and tracking while shooting movies. You can also use P/A/S/M modes to achieve maximum control over how the image looks, and zoom with extra clarity, courtesy of Clear Image Zoom.

Sony 16-50mm OSS Lens

The Sony Alpha a6000 interchangeable lens is the 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS lens, bringing you a 35mm format equivalent of 24-75mm for portrait to landscape shots. Optical Steady Shot image stabilization helps minimize camera shake for better image quality.

Sony 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS E-Mount Lens

Sony's 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 Lens brings the world to owners of NEX cameras in a long telephoto zoom lens with 3.8x magnification. Its Internal focusing feature gives you smooth, responsive autofocus, with minimum noise - perfect for capturing video. With a telephoto lens, image stabilization is very important to prevent camera shake.
