A Perfect Pairing For Sharp,
Detailed Images

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 in specific areas to ensure sharp images. Together with the new 24.3MP APS HD CMOS sensor which improves light sensitivity, expect outstanding quality in every image.

Split-second And Ultra-sharp
Split-Second And
Ultra-Sharp

Capturing an impressive 11 photos a second wouldn't mean much if they were blurry. That's where the α6000 excels; you get a very high frames-per-second (fps) rate while the superior AF tracking ensures your selected subject is crisp and clear.

 
 
Smooth And Seamless DSLR-Style

Shooting perfectly lit, crisp photos and videos like a professional is just a few dials and taps away with the α6000 mirrorless camera. Enjoy features such as Multi Interface Shoe which allows users to take advantage of accessories for movie shooting and high-capacity flash units for still images, built-in flash for minimal camera-shake blur and a new customisable user interface for swift access to a wide range of functions.
