Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Gold AwardJune 2014
The a6000 is a really solid camera and is better than its predecessor in almost every respect.
Richard ButlerRichard ButlerJeff KellerJeff Keller

Conclusion

The a6000 brings Sony's latest interface improvements and enhanced JPEG processing to a well-featured, competitively-priced mid-range camera. Its stand-out features are its comprehensive video controls and continuous autofocus performance unprecedented at this price. The flexible but optically average power zoom make this a highly capable and compact package.

Reasons to buy

  • Great images from best-in-class sensor
  • Small body with generally well placed controls
  • Fast continuous shooting with class-leading autofocus
  • Excellent level of control over video (including manual exposure)
  • High quality, responsive viewfinder

Things to consider

  • Flash exposures often misjudged
  • Noise reduction can be a bit heavy-handed
  • Missing the touchscreen controls of less expensive models
  • Battery life quite low with power zoom lens

Suggested for

Anyone looking to shoot stills and video. Photographers wanting something small but capable. Amateur sports shooters.

Not suggested for

Shooters used to a twin-dial camera. Anyone looking to just use the kit zoom.

Technology



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 Sony's Premium Full Frame a7R Camera for ultimate image quality and light sensitivity.

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. It's the world's fastest AF in an interchangeable lens camera. 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.

What You See is What You Get

View every scene in rich detail on the high contrast 1.4M dot Tru-Finder OLED Electronic Viewfinder. It delivers 100% frame coverage with an approximately 33° viewing angle for corner-to-corner visibility. Not only that, the viewfinder displays what will appear in your images and videos, including the effects of your camera settings so you can fine-tune focus and preview your shots before you take the picture.


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 474 functions.

Connect to your Smartphone via WiFi and NFC

Sharing your gorgeous photos with your family and social networks has never been easier. Wi-Fi connectivity allows you to control your camera with your compatible smartphone or tablet and the PlayMemories Camera Apps5. 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

Enjoy 20% higher sensitivity than the 2011 Camera of the Year Winner, NEX-7. Thanks 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.



Additional Features


Full HD Output

Record movie-theater quality video with ease. 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. Record movie-theater quality video with ease. 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.

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.

PlayMemories Camera Apps

Personalize your camera by adding new features of your choice with PlayMemories Camera Apps. PlayMemories Camera Apps offers a variety of apps to enhance your photos without ever needing advance photo editing skills. Choose apps for portraits, detailed close-ups, sports, time lapse, motion shot and 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 computer5.

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° and down 45°. 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 interchangeable lens camera in the world6. 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.

New Eye AF control


Thanks to extremely accurate eye detection, faces will be sharply focused - even when capturing a subject partially turned away from the camera and with a shallow depth of field – as the camera can prioritize a single pupil. A green frame appears over the prioritized eye when focus has been achieved for easy confirmation. Eye AF can be used when the function is assigned to a customizable button, allowing users to instantly activate it depending on the scene.

4K Still image output by HDMI8 or Wi-Fi for viewing on 4K TVs

Enjoy Ultra High Definition slide shows directly from the camera to a compatible 4K television. The α6000 converts images for optimized 4K image size playback (8MP). Enjoy expressive rich colors and amazing detail like never before. Images can be viewed via an optional HDMI.

Compatible with Sony's E-Mount Lens System

To take advantage of its lightweight on-the-go body, the α6000 is compatible with Sony’s E-mount lens system and expanded line of E-mount compact and lightweight lenses - perfect for the traveler or street photographer.

Picture Effects

The α6000 includes 17 effects that can be applied to photos or movies, giving you the means to vastly expand your artistic repertoire. The ability to view effects in real-time on the LCD screen before the shot lets you experiment with different looks until you are satisfied with the result.

Let me start this review with some background of my photography experience. (Short story, I am an amateur, skip to “PROS” section)

I bought a Nikon D40 and had it for several years before selling it in college and I was short on cash. Ever since then I’ve been relegated to my various cell phone cameras. I always had intentions of buying back into the hobbyist camera space at some point, and with an upcoming trip to Europe this summer, there was no time like the present to make a purchase.

I had set a budget for myself that basically put my sights on the OM-D E-M10 and the Sony A6000, sans kit lens and spending the money (well worth it, we’ll get to that in a bit) to get a fast prime near the 50mm equivalent range.

I never got a hold of an E-M10, so I will not compare the two, but will say that the APS-C sensor size of the A6000 was a key point for me. Without stirring the micro four thirds vs. the world debate, for me, sensor size still means something. Reality is that for the hobbyist, honestly, I don’t think you can choose incorrectly.

The purchase was an A6000 (body only) with the well-reviewed SEL35F18 lens. I am forgoing the kit lens and intend to fill out my lens set (eventually) with the SEL1018 and another mid-range zoom. I cannot emphasize enough how great the SEL35F18 lens is. I am in love with it, and I think that it will really teach me to shoot correctly, rather than lean on the “zoom” crutch. If you have the extra cash, I would highly recommend this kit as a great starting point.

I am not a professional, I have not taken photography courses, so I will cover the camera from the perspective of a guy looking to take photography to the next level. Let’s dig on in…

PROS:
-The A6000 is small.

Style Name: Body OnlyColor Name: BlackConfiguration: Base Verified Purchase
Having pre-ordered and purchased this as an upgrade to a NEX-6, here are some initial impressions:

First off, the biggest improvement by far is the autofocus. They're not kidding - it is fast. DSLR fast. Even in low light situations that would leave the leave the NEX hopelessly hunting for focus, it can lock on. Focus seems very accurate as well.

Other enhancements:

+ More ISO Choices: The NEX-6 ISO settings were in 1-stop increments - 100/200/400/800/etc. The A6000 offers 1/3-stop increments: 100/125/160/200/etc. I'm sure this will come in handy. In addition, it offers multi-frame NR as an additional option when selecting auto-ISO (though this option is not available when shooting in RAW/JPG mode)

+ Better menu system: It is now much easier to use, and resembles the menu system of the RX100. I was able to get the camera set to my liking in a fraction of the time that it would have taken with the NEX-6, even today after using it for over a year and nearly 10,000 shots.

+ Better low-light performance: Shooting back-to-back with the NEX-6, the A6000 yields much cleaner JPG output at a given ISO. I haven't yet had a chance to look at RAW.

+ Burst mode: WOW. Continuous Shooting drive mode now offers three modes: lo/mid/hi. Speed priority is no longer there, I presume because of the much faster image processor and autofocus renders it unnecessary. On "Lo" it feels about the same as the NEX. On "Hi" it is like a chain gun.

+ The viewfinder: Yes, I think it is an upgrade. I could not discern any lower resolution, but it definitely is faster on the refresh and better in low light.

Major update:

I made my first long backpacking adventure in the Ansel Adams wilderness with the Sony A6000 camera. Wow, what a beautiful place! 8 days hiking and about 800 photos - well actually 1,700 but many of them are bracketed pictures. Anyway a great test in real world conditions.

Most importantly I was able to capture great photos! I shifted between manual, aperture, shutter, auto ISO, bracketed exposure and all the other settings seamlessly. I even switched between two lenses while on the trail! A fixed 19mm to the 55-210mm lens (I did not bring the 16-50mm Sony lens since it seems to be too fragile for trail work.) It took a while to learn where the controls are located, but once understood easy to use. I used a cheap IR remote and that worked well too. I brought a tiny tripod and that was handy - no need for the bigger tripod. The way I use it is not a point and shoot camera.

Ok so it works, but what else? The sensor is not as good for dynamic range as the Canon 5d so getting full dynamic pictures requires a bit more effort. It is much harder to get proper exposure. My solution was to use the bracketed feature - what a great feature and easy to select. It ended up that most of my shots are bracketed which triples the number and size of the files. Big deal - memory is cheap. I pick the exposure I like, then can do an HDR pass if I like. (All photos are in RAW). It works.

The camera has a panoramic setting for really wide shots. Much easier for getting those big vistas quick and dirty. I sometimes also capture for after the fact stitching, but the panoramic setting works OK - not always successfully - the feature is fussy and fails on occasion (like when there is a waterfall in the scene).
