Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm and 55-210mm Lenses
The black Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera is a versatile and advanced mirrorless camera featuring 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. Beyond notable imaging traits, the image processor also lends itself to continuous shooting up to 11 fps and an intelligent Fast Hybrid AF system that uses both phase- and contrast-detection methods to quickly and accurately acquire focus.
For live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation, both a large rear monitor and detailed electronic viewfinder are available. The 3.0 inch 921k-dot Xtra Fine LCD screen features a tilting design to facilitate easier use from both high and low angles and also incorporates WhiteMagic technology for easier viewing in bright conditions. The 0.39 inch 1,440k-dot Tru-Finder OLED EVF offers 100 per cent 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, for efficient and intuitive access to frequently used camera settings. Additionally, a Multi Interface shoe is available for attaching external flashes, continuous lights, or microphones.

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 high resolution, well-detailed imagery 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 neighboring 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. 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 ensured accuracy. Beyond supporting single shot modes, this system also provides AF tracking when shooting up to 11 fps in continuous high mode and functions seamlessly when recording full HD movies.
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.
Revolving around a compact and lightweight profile, the a6000 incorporates both an electronic viewfinder and a large rear LCD monitor. The Tru-Finder 0.39 inch 1,440k-dot OLED EVF features a refined optical system that integrates four double-sided aspherical elements to provide 100 per cent frame coverage and a wide 33 degree 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 finalized image prior to shooting and also avails focusing aids, such as MF Assist and the Peaking function. The 3.0 inch 921k-dot rear Xtra Fine monitor is a larger alternative, suitable for making accurate compositions, reviewing imagery, and navigating the menu system. It features a tilting design that can tilt upward approximately 90 degree or downward 45 degree to benefit working from high and low angles. Additionally, WhiteMagic technology works to increase the overall brightness of the screen to better support use in bright or sunlit conditions.

Sony a6000 battery drain mystery solved!!! Turn Airplane Mode On! The a6000 supports Wi-Fi transfer of photos and videos to SmartPhones, Computers and other Wi-Fi devices. The default setting is Airplane Mode Off which drains the battery even with the camera off because it is always looking for nearby Wi-Fi devices. The solution is to turn Wi-Fi Off by turning Airplane Mode On. Only turn Airplane Mode Off when you want to send photos/videos to another Wi-Fi device. Then turn Airplane Mode On again as soon as you have finished sending. Problem solved.
The a6000 is the first proper camera I have purchased in my life. I had dabbled with photography here and there using cameras that were given to me by relatives, and certainly nothing fancy. When phones started having cameras that became my primary tool for taking photos and had always thought that a proper camera was an overkill in this day and age. Boy was I wrong.
This camera is loaded with features and has everything that a beginner would want. It is a relatively affordable camera for families looking to take shots of their kids, family gatherings, etc. With the proper lens it can get you truly stunning photos that can be used professionally. The interface is easy to use, and there are plenty of resources available online to learn how to use the a6000 effectively. For me, photography is not my main hobby, so I don't need an expensive full frame camera.
The ability to transfer your pictures to your phone via Wi-Fi is a must for relatively quick sharing of photos to Facebook or Instagram. Another thing I really like about this camera is the size and how solid it feels. It won't win any prizes for ergonomics but you can definitely tell you are holding a quality product. A lot of the Pros complain that the focus system is not as good as those found in a DSLR but for me I found it more than good enough. You can track your subjects in motion, quickly assign eye auto-focus to a custom button. I really don't see myself getting more fancy when it comes to Auto Focus.
Now the negatives is that the lenses are a little pricier than I would like, and there is a lower number of lenses specifically designed for the APS C sensor. You will see lots of "E Mount" lenses but a lot of them work best in the more expensive A 7 Sony Full Frame cameras. Thankfully the companies Sigma and Rokinon (Samyang) have made some quality lenses that fill the gaps at a more reasonable price.
Having used the camera for about six months here is what I recommend in terms of lenses:
* Sony 50mm f1.8 with OSS - This should be the first lens that you get after the kit lens. Just incredible image quality for the price. Some people might say that you need the Sony 35mm f1.8 instead. For that one you have to be willing to spend as of this writing $150 more. My only negative comment with the 50mm lens is that it will be hard to take photos in tight spaces. You will run into this issue when wanting group photographs in smaller rooms. However, I found myself taking a lot more pictures outside where the way to solve this problem is to back away from the subject.
* Rokinon/Samyang 12mm f2.0 - This is the wide angle lens to get for the a6000. It is incredibly sharp, and very affordable compared to the Sony alternative. With this lens you can get a lot of the room in tight spots. Moreover this solves my primary issue with the 50mm.
Overall, I can't rave about the a6000 enough. It is as close to the perfect beginner camera as you can get. Affordable, loaded with features, great image quality.
