Description

Shoot in 0.06 seconds: the world’s fastest autofocus

The perfect moment, captured

The Sony ILCE A6000, with it’s Fast Hybrid AF combines the strengths of both phase- and contrast-detection autofocus. 179 phase detection points (covering almost the entire image) and high-speed contrast-detection function.

Sony launches a new age of autofocus

4D FOCUS enables superior autofocus performance in four dimensions: wide autofocus coverage (2D height and width), fast autofocus speed (3D depth) and enhanced predictive tracking (4D time).

 

Quality starts with the sensor

More area for more detailed images

The α6000 Sony ILCE A6000 outclasses many cameras in its category. Its APS-C size sensor offers 1.6 times the area of 4/3 sensors, and 13 times that of the 1/2.3 sensors of typical compact digital cameras, resulting in an outstanding level of quality in every image.

Sharper details, faster AF

BIONZ X™ Processor

With three times the processing speed of earlier models, the new BIONZ X™ is able to accurately capture textures, reduce blurry details and even suppress visual noise to ensure sharp images. These advantages apply equally to still images or video.

Exmor™ CMOS sensor

The new 24.3 MP APS HD sensor features optimised light gathering (through angled micro-lenses) and improved light sensitivity.

Advanced processor

The BIONZ X™ image processor ensures images of the highest quality, and provides the muscle needed for ultra-fast AF.

Amazing shots in low light

The extremely high ISO range lets you shoot natural, nuanced photos in dim light or indoors without a flash.

Introducing the world’s fastest autofocus

At 0.06 seconds, capture flying water drops and fleeting smiles.

The world’s fastest autofocus makes the Sony ILCE A6000 one of the most versatile interchangeable-lens camera available; at a mere 0.06 seconds, you’re assured of getting the perfect shot in any situation from family events to sports to nature.

Never miss the perfect shot

Fast Hybrid AF

The advanced Fast Hybrid AF enables more scenes to be focused via phase-detection only (reducing reliance on the contrast-detection mode), delivering the world’s fastest AF available to capture your subject at the exact moment you intend.

Wider frame coverage

Ultra-precise 179 AF points for greater coverage.

More autofocus points mean a better chance of capturing a perfectly sharp image, and with a class-leading 179 AF points, the Sony ILCE A6000 provides extensive frame coverage and continuous, precise location of your subject—no matter where in the frame they may be.

Focal plane phase detection AF points

Split-second and ultra-sharp

11 fps continuous shooting with AF tracking

Capturing an impressive 11 photos a second wouldn’t mean much if they were blurry. That’s where the Sony ILCE A6000 excels; you get a very high frames-per-second (fps) rate while the superior AF tracking ensures your selected subject is crisp and clear.

11 frames per second

Video phase detection

Smooth AF enhances your movies

The Sony ILCE A6000’s impressive AF capabilities are not just limited to still photos. It uses the same phase-detection priority to ensure fast focusing and smooth tracking to give a professional polish to your most demanding video projects.
