Sony Alpha A6000 Digital Camera with 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens
Shoot in 0.06 seconds: the world’s fastest autofocus
The perfect moment, captured
The α6000’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).
Your camera, your color
Capture the moment as never before. α6000’s autofocus is faster than a DSLR so you never miss a shot. And with new colors to choose from, your photos aren’t the only way to express yourself.
Quality starts with the sensor
More area for more detailed images
The α6000 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.
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 α6000 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 α6000 provides extensive frame coverage and continuous, precise location of your subject—no matter where in the frame they may be.
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 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.
Video phase detection
Smooth AF enhances your movies
The α6000’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.
Stop the action, not the thrills
Freeze your subject at an amazing 11 fps for dramatic shots that capture the exact moment or expression you’re looking for.
With Full 1080 HD at 60p or 24p, you can make the aesthetic choice to capture film-like motion in your videos.
AF features for any scene
Eye AF, Lock-on AF and more let you delegate that aspect to the camera, freeing you to concentrate on the content of the scene.
More camera. Less to carry.
Expert features, customisable buttons and manual controls—in a compact, lightweight design.
The α6000 is smaller and lighter than comparable DSLRs
The best camera is the one you have with you. With its compact size and light weight, the α6000 compares favourably to bulkier, heavier DSLRs. Yet with the creativity of interchangeable lenses, manual controls and more, you sacrifice nothing.
Smarter viewfinder for better photos
The OLED Tru-Finder™ EVF is another α6000 expert-level tool, with real-time data for planning and previewing shots. Exposure Control compensates for bright/dim scenes, Focus Zoom enlarges a chosen detail and Display Mode reveals histograms and more.
Lenses: the ultimate creative tool
Experiment with interchangeable E-mount lenses and beyond.
Snap, tap and share.
Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity make it simple to show, and share, your genius. Transfer of photos or videos to NFC-compatible televisions as well as Android smartphones or tablets.

Improved Lock-on AF
Now more accurate than ever, due to advances in phase-detection AF, Lock-on AF enhances tracking of moving subjects by adjusting target frame size to match subjectâ€¨characteristics and ensuring usageâ€¨of the optimalâ€¨AF point at allâ€¨times.
Even when capturing a subject partially turned away from the camera with a shallow depth of field, the face is sharply focused thanks to extremely accurate Eye AF. A green frame appears over the prioritized eye when focus has been achieved.
Swift, intuitive operation
Controls are refined for intuitive DSLR-style operation while viewing scenes through the viewfinder. The mode dial enables quick selection of shooting modes with your thumb, while the control dial and control wheel make it easy to set various parameters.
