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 realizes 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 Apps™. 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-degree 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
Personalize your camera by adding new features of your choice with 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 computer.


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 degrees and down 45 degrees. 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.


The Fastest Focusing Camera in the World
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 in the world. 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.

3 out of 5 eggsNo lens caps, really?

Pros: So now I've had the camera for about two weeks. I love the resolution and quality of the photos. The auto focus rocks as does the continuous shooting. It's really top-notch, I'm very happy. I'm also happy with the functions, menu, ability to customize buttons and so forth. And thanks Newegg for including a nice memory card that Sony left out of the bundle.

Cons: I'm still miffed about the lack of a body cap and rear lens cap with the 16-50mm lens bundle.

Also, Sony should include a memory card. (It was nice that Newegg provided one for free.)

Lack of a DC style car charger was a negative too. I had to buy one aftermarket.

And the big negative was when I bought an FE 70-200mm lens and mounted it to the a6000. I noticed it had some rotational play, of about .002-.003". Not cool. It was then that I mounted the lighter FE 28-70mm lens and noticed the same rotational play as well.

The OEM E mount consist of two parts, one metal ring over a plastic inner ring to which the lens locks. This is true of the a7 and a7r as well. The newer a7s, Iv'e read, has a single piece all metal E mount ring.

As it turns out, someone decided this rotational play was such a problem that there is now an aftermarket single piece all metal E mount replacement. So I bought one, a "Tought E Mount" by fotodiox, and now my lenses click into place nice and tight.

Other Thoughts: So, overall, I'm very happy with the camera. But because it's kind of a "kit project," meaning I had to purchase bits and pieces, as well as an aftermarket 'performance' part, Sony only gets three eggs on the a6000 16-50mm lens bundle.

3 out of 5 eggsNo lens caps, really?

Pros: I've only had this camera for a little over a day now. What little I've learned so far, it seems very nice. I will append this review at a later date with my overall user experience once I get the camera into the field. Also, so far it's fully compatible with Linux under digicam, Gwenview, and GIMP. Darktable will be able to process the RAW files by the end of the year, they say.

Cons: For now, I'm ***very*** disappointed that I was forced to immediately get online to buy a camera body cap and a rear lens cap--and I can't remove the lens until they arrive. It's really pathetic that a relatively expensive mid-range interchangeable lens camera would be packaged and sold without a full set of protective caps. Also missing, a full instruction book which must be download from the Sony website.

Other Thoughts: I sure hope I'm not making an expensive mistake buying into the Sony ecosystem which generally is marked by overpriced products, manufacturer penny pinching (lack of caps and a complete printed instruction manual for example). Of course, the quality is very good, but Sony seems to prefer to pinch pennies and have "satisfied" customers rather than loose a penny or two and have happy customers. It's a fine line they walk for a tiny extra profit. I'll update this review with a full user experience at a later date.

5 out of 5 eggsSONY Alpha a6000 ILCE-6000L/B Black 24.3 MP 3.0" 921.6K LCD Mirrorless DSLR Camera w/ 16-50mm Lens

Pros: I have a Canon 60D DSLR camera, but I also have little kids. The DSLR camera is bulky and difficult to carry around in one hand, while holding one of my kids in the other. I needed a replacement that was smaller & had the closest quality to my DSLR. I researched & found this camera. It does not replace my DSLR, but it comes the closest. It takes great pictures, I am an aperture, auto & when I feel brave, a manual shooter. The camera is light, and I mean light. Wow, what a difference in weight compared to my DSLR, I dropped 90% of my weight. I take this with me every time I travel with the family. I still use my DSLR camera, but only when I travel alone. The auto focus is amazing, shooting is easy, I especially like the ability to wirelessly display the pictures on my smart TV. I am very happy with my purchase, & if you have the same reasons I do to find a replacement / companion to your DSLR camera, then you will not be disappointed.
Also, if you are in the market for a DSLR camera, but are afraid to take the plunge, this camera may be the stepping stone you need.

Cons: Price, but you do get what you paid for,.

Other Thoughts: See Pros
