Review summary from DPReview

Sony Alpha a6000 Interchangeable Lens Camera
DPReview Gold Award June 2014
The a6000 is a really solid camera and is better than its predecessor in almost every respect.
Richard Butler Richard Butler Jeff Keller Jeff Keller
80%

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.

This camera is nearly perfect. Ease of use and features are the best I ever had. Blows away my previous sony A57, and is better than the sony RX 100 MIII used at my job. Paired with a Sony SELP18105G E PZ 18-105mm F4 G OSS it is a versatile beast of a camera for photo and video. If you don't know anything about photography just set it to Intelligent Auto and it will still take fantastic pictures. Since pictures are the best proof, see the following customer images I uploaded: pond, sunset, popcorn, popcorn cropped and tubing. Anyone can take pictures like these with this camera.

I love this camera. I got it on January 09, 2015. I immediately noticed how fast it drained the battery. It was even draining the battery overnight with the camera turned off, so I ordered 2 additional batteries and a charger. And I got in the habit of taking out the battery when I wasn't using the camera. I'm an engineer so I immediately started looking online for a remedy in various forums and conducting experiments to find out what was draining the battery so fast. After a lot of digging with no solution, I was going through all the menus one day and stumbled across Airplane Mode???

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.

I'm an enthusiast and like many current SONY users I'm a convert: I used various Canon gear since the original Rebel came out. I had thousands of dollars invested in lenses. The first two rebels were great cameras. Then I started to grow disappointed with each next Canon camera. 40D was awful. The 7D was better but still I was not happy and I could not afford a better body such as 5D. Also, I mainly shoot while hiking and I grew tired of hauling the mass of gear. After not shooting for over a year I figured it's time to change something.

I also used Canon point and shoot cameras and, again, I was terribly disappointed with the quality and reliability. S95 died with the dreaded "lens error". S100, also died in less than two years. So I started reading and discovered the SONY RX100II. It blew me away! In decent light I could not tell the difference between the RX100II and Canon 7D shots! So I started digging deeper since I never considered SONY cameras before and it came to a very hard choice between the a6000 and the A7.

After studying very RAW file I could find on the internet for weeks I decided the slight difference in image quality was not worth 3x the price of the A7 for me.

I bough the a6000 with the E PZ 18-105mm F4 G OSS. After the first shoot my jaw dropped. I could not believe it! This tiny $550 body and an $800 lens totally blew away the Canon 7D that costs three times as much. Anything from sharpness and color to speed of focus just wipes the floor with the 7D!

So I sold all my Canon gear and bough another a6000 body and the FE 70-200mm F4 G OSS lens. I also bought the Rokinon 12mm F2.0 NCS CS lens and two sets of Vivitar chargers and batteries and AGFA filters.

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).
