Sony Alpha a6100 APS-C Mirrorless Interchangeable-Lens Camera (Body Only)

Explore your photography skills with this Sony Alpha a6100 Mirrorless Camera. With a 24.2MP APS-C type Exmor CMOS image sensor, powerful BIONZ X image processor, and front-end LSI, the camera delivers stunning image quality with high-speed performance. It uses a 425-point Autofocus (AF) system for a wide AF area coverage, 0.02-second AF acquisition speed acquisition speed, and persistent tracking. All these features ensure you get sharp detailed images even if the subject is in motion.

24.2MP Exmor CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Image Processor

The Sony Alpha 6100 digital interchangeable lens camera uses an APS-C-type, 24.2-megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor and a BIONZ X image processing engine to produce high-resolution images with rich detail and true-to-life color reproduction. It also features a high-performance LSI that works in conjunction with BIONZ X to deliver True 14-bit RAW images. The camera offers 11 fps continuous shooting, 4K recording with full pixel readout without pixel binning, and Full HD 120 fps high-speed shooting.

Improved Noise Suppression for Cleaner Images

The a6100 APSC Mirrorless provides a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100-32,000 (expandable up to ISO 51,200 for stills) for excellent low-noise performance when shooting in dim lighting ensuring stunning, high-quality images.

Fast Hybrid AF for Breathtaking Shots

Sony a6100 Digital Mirrorless Camera uses a fast autofocus (AF) system that boats a 425 phase-detection and 425 contrast-detection AF points for wide area coverage, effectively tracking erratically moving subjects across the frame. It offers a super-fast acquisition time of 0.02 seconds that can lock focus on even the fastest moving subject.

Maintain Steady Focus with Realtime Tracking

The camera’s automatic motion tracker uses AI-based subject-tracking algorithms to recognize and maintain focus on your subject, when tracking a fast-moving subject. These algorithms use color, pattern (brightness), subject distance (depth), and face/eye information for high-speed processing in real time. Constant, steady focus function is perfect for covering a sporting event or documenting everyday life.

Phase-Detection AF and Contrast-Detection AF Working Together

Fast Hybrid AF combines high speed, accuracy and tracking performance for precise autofocusing during 4K movie shooting. Focal plane phase-detection system enables more stable AF, while the contrast-detection AF system contributes to overall accuracy. As a result, a smooth, steady focus is maintained on the subject even when an object crosses in front of your subject.

Touch Tracking and Touch Focus Features

The Sony Alpha a6100’s Touch Tracking feature lets you track your subject by simply by touching the monitor. Once activated, the camera will begin auto-tracking the subject as it moves. This feature is available for both stills and movies. In addition, the simple-to-use Touch Focus feature helps you set the focus anywhere on frame. You just need to touch the appropriate point on the monitor to set the focus.

Slow and Quick Motion Recording

The a6100 Mirrorless Camera is capable of recording Slow motion (at up to 5x) and quick motion (at up to 60x) video at up to Full HD resolution without any post-processing. The camera also delivers up to 120 fps Full HD recordings at high bit-rates (up to 100 Mbps) that can be used to create slow-motion movies in post-production.

180-Degree Tiltable LCD Screen

The camera’s 3-inch LCD monitor with 921k-dot resolution gives you a clear view of what you're shooting for better framing. It tilts upward by 180 degrees and downward by 74 degrees allowing you to adjust the frame for convenient low-angle and high-angle shooting. It also lets you frame yourself for vlog recording and selfie shots. In addition, the camera is equipped with an external microphone jack letting you attach an external microphone for high-quality audio - perfect for serious movie shooting and high-quality vlogging.

Square Aspect Ratio for Social Media Upload

In addition to the 3:2 and 16:9 aspect ratios, Alpha a6100 has a 1:1 aspect ratio option that lets you directly share images on social media platforms. This means that you no longer need to edit image after shooting and you can directly post them online.

One-Touch Remote, One-Touch Sharing

The One-Touch remote feature lets you remotely control the camera using a mobile device, while One-Touch sharing allows you to transfer photos and videos to a mobile device for instant sharing on social media. The camera can also use your phone's location data via Bluetooth to geo-tag your images. All these mobile device functions are available via Sony's Imaging Edge Mobile app.
