The stylish grey-coloured Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera is a versatile and advanced mirrorless camera that features a 24.3MP APS-C-sized Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor to produce high-resolution still images and Full HD movies with marked low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 25600. The camera allows for continuous shooting up to 11 fps and has an intelligent Fast Hybrid AF system that uses both phase- and contrast-detection methods to quickly and accurately acquire focus, which is great for shooting moving subjects.

For image playback, live view monitoring and menu navigation, choose between a large rear monitor and detailed electronic viewfinder. The 3.0" 921k-dot XtraFine LCD screen features a tilting design to facilitate easier use from both high and low angles and also incorporates WhiteMagic technology for easier viewing even in bright conditions. The 0.39" 1,440k-dot Tru-Finder OLED EVF offers 100% frame coverage and a refined optical design to provide a natural viewing perspective and magnification. The body design of the a6000 also houses a configurable user interface, built around several customisable buttons and two control dials. This feature enables efficient and intuitive access to frequently used camera settings. Additionally, a Multi Interface shoe is available for attaching external flashes, continuous lights, or microphones.

The a600 has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and support for NFC-enabled devices for remote camera control and to share images to mobile devices. In addition to these base features, with firmware version 2.0 users will have access to the XAVC S format for Full HD 1080p video at 24, 30, and 60 fps. This format will dramatically improve video quality by allowing the camera to capture images at a high bit rate of 50 Mbps, which holds more information than AVCHD for fewer artefacts. Along with this, users will be required to use Class 10 or faster SDXC memory cards with a capacity of 64GB or greater.

Included with the camera body is a Sony E-mount 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS Retractable Zoom Lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-75mm. This range of perspectives is well-suited to everyday shooting and is further enhanced through the inclusion of Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation for minimising the appearance of camera shake. For users that require electronic control over the zoom position, Power Zoom technology is integrated. The inclusion of one extra-low dispersion element and four aspherical elements helps to reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range as well as contribute to high overall sharpness.

24.3MP Exmor APS HD CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Image Processor
The 24.3MP APS-C-sized Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor work together to produce well- detailed imagery and high resolution, with minimal noise and notable low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 25600. The sensor utilises a gapless on-chip lens design, which fills the gaps between neighbouring pixels with optimised lenses that match the angle of incidence to increase light gathering ability and produce edge-to-edge sharpness and quality. The processor also contributes to providing a wealth of speed throughout the camera system, including Fast Hybrid AF, a top continuous shooting rate of 11 fps, and Full HD 1080i/p video recording in multiple frame rates.
Fast Hybrid AF System
The Fast Hybrid AF system utilises both a 179-point phase-detection system and 25-point contrast-detection system to achieve precise focus in as little as 0.06 sec. By utilising a Spatial Object Detection algorithm, this fast-focusing system first employs the phase-detection AF points to quickly bring the subject into focus and then uses the contrast-detection AF points, with wide AF coverage, to fine-tune the sharpness for absolute accuracy. Beyond supporting single shot modes, this system also provides AF tracking when shooting up to 11 fps in continuous high mode and is able to function seamlessly when recording Full HD movies.

For increased accuracy, users can select from distinct AF modes depending on their subject. Eye AF is a detail-oriented focusing function that is able to prioritise a subject's pupil and dedicate focusing performance on that, a feature that’s perfect for sharply-rendered portraits; Lock-on AF is a dedicated focusing method for use with moving subjects and adjusts the target frame size as the subject moves throughout the image frame; AF area settings allow you to prioritise specific regions within the frame for increased accuracy; and AF-A (Automatic AF), AF-S (Single-shot AF), AF-C (Continuous AF), DMF (Direct Manual Focus), and Manual Focus modes are other available options.
Full HD Video Recording
Full HD 1080p video recording is supported at 60, 30, and 24 fps in the high-quality 50 Mbps XAVC S codec. Other recording options include the ability to utilise the AVCHD and MP4 codecs, with support for recording up to 1080p60 video at 28 Mbps. Dual video recording is supported, as well, with the ability to select either XAVC S or AVCHD codecs plus a duplicate MP4 file to be recorded at the same time for greater efficiency when sharing videos online. Additionally, using the integrated HDMI type D output, both 1080i60 and 1080p60 uncompressed 8-bit 4:2:2 video can be recorded to an optional external recorder, also available from digiDIRECT.

Complementing the video capabilities of the a6000 is a built-in stereo microphone which professionally records audio in the Linear PCM 2-channel format for XAVC S movies, the AC-3 Dolby Digital format for AVCHD movies, and the MPEG-4 AAC-LC format for web-quality MP4 videos.

Manual focus peaking and a zebra function are also available, to benefit working in manual focus and to assure highlight detail is retained. A marker setting can be shown on the rear LCD as well, in order to display a centre marker, guide frame, aspect marker, safety zone, and other pertinent features for video recording.
Body Design
The Alpha a6000 boasts a compact and lightweight profile which incorporates both an electronic viewfinder and a large rear LCD monitor. The Tru-Finder 0.39" 1,440k-dot OLED EVF features a refined optical system that integrates four double-sided aspherical elements to provide 100% frame coverage and a wide 33° viewing angle for clear edge-to-edge viewing. The electronic viewfinder's design offers a true live view image, which is able to simulate the appearance of the finalised image prior to shooting and also avails focusing aids, such as MF Assist and the Peaking function. The 3.0" 921k-dot rear Xtra Fine monitor is a larger alternative, suitable for making accurate compositions, reviewing imagery, and gaining access to the menu system. It features a tilting design that can tilt upward approximately 90° or downward 45° for an accessible perspective when working from high and low angles. Additionally, WhiteMagic technology works to increase the overall brightness of the screen to better support use in sunny or bright conditions.

A customisable user interface is included with an Fn function button and seven other buttons that can be adjusted depending on a user’s own preferences and can be assigned to one of 47 different functions. Furthermore, two top dials offer an intuitive means for selecting crucial camera settings in an agile way. A built-in pop-up flash, featuring a guide number of 19.7' at ISO 100, is available for working in difficult lighting conditions and a Multi Interface Shoe is also available for attaching additional on-camera accessories, such as microphones, flashes and video lights.
Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity
Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC enables the a6000 to instantly share imagery to mobile devices for direct sharing online to social networking, via email, and to cloud storage sites. NFC (Near Field Communication) allows for one-touch connection between the camera and compatible mobile devices, without any need for complex set-up. Once connected, the linked mobile device can also display a live view image on its screen and remotely control the camera's shutter.

Additionally, PlayMemories Camera Apps are also supported via the built-in Wi-Fi connection, and allow you to personalise the camera's features depending on specific shooting styles. Other useful apps are available to suit creating portraits, detailed close-ups, sports, time lapse, motion shot, and other specific types of imagery, so you can get creative with your work.
