If you're looking for a mirrorless camera that's great at sports and action shooting, as well as delivering superb video, look no further than Sony's Alpha A6000 series. There's three models, the original A6000, the recent A6300 (which adds 4k video, weather-proofing and even better AF), and the...

  • +

    Very high resolution 24 Megapixel sensor., Most effective continuous AF in its class., Fast continuous shooting at 11fps., Fast single AF., Good viewfinder and tilting screen., 1080p video with full manual control., Built-in Wifi with NFC and downloadable apps., Broad degree of customisation.

  • -

    Laborious process to set single AF area position., No touchscreen. Screen only tilts, not fully articulated., No GPS tagging built-into Wifi app., Apps sometimes feel like reinstating features., No 3.5mm microphone jack., No leveling gauge., No miniature effect for movies., No silent shutter option.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise: We gave the NEX-6 an Editor’s Choice, and with higher resolution, faster burst mode, and improved AF and menu system the A6000 gets one too. A touchscreen LCD really would’ve made the package even better, as would relocating the video record button, but we can’t...

    Very good stills and movies, 11 fps burst mode, Super-responsive AF system, Quality EVF and LCD

    Kit lens is too limiting, No touchscreen display, Red-dot movie button hard to engage

Despite small annoyances, the Sony Alpha 6000 is a great overall camera for more advanced photographers who want something smaller than a dSLR, especially if they need the continuous- shooting speed.

  • +

    The Sony Alpha 6000 has seriously fast continuous shooting for the money, and its design improves upon its predecessor's already excellent one. Plus it's got an extensive feature set.

  • -

    The movie record button remains annoying, and while it delivers excellent photo quality, it's not best-in-class in low light. It's also slow on startup.

Not only does this high-res speed demon cram in plenty of desirable features, the Sony A6000 also shaves a couple of hundred dollars off its predecessor's price. That's the recipe for greatness, so it's no surprise this has been one of our most popular reviews in recent memory -- and now, it's...

    Amazing image quality for the price; Blazing-fast hybrid autofocus; Swift burst shooting with generous buffer depths; Good battery life with LCD monitor; More compact than a DSLR; In-camera Wi-Fi wireless networking, Amazing amount of quality for the price, Crisp JPEG images with few sharpening...

    Continuous autofocus can't match its burst rate; High-ISO JPEGs can look overprocessed; Sluggish startup; No touch-screen display; Wi-Fi can be a bit frustrating to use, Sluggish startup, Soft corners from the kit lens at wide angle, Kit lens produces strong barrel distortion and C.A.

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.

    24 megapixel APS-C sensor is one of the best in its class, Small body with generally well placed controls, Very fast continuous shooting, Class-leading continuous autofocus, Excellent level of control over video (including manual exposure), High quality, responsive viewfinder, Electronic...

With unusual cameras like the A7 and A7R, Sony’s A6000 ran the risk of being overshadowed. Elevated from the NEX range to sit alongside Sony’s full DSLRs with the Alpha prefix, the A6000 builds on the NEX-6 with a new 24.3-megapixel sensor and a flashy autofocus system the company claims is a...

One of my resolutions for 2016 is to do a better job at timely completion of projects, and one of such tasks is to catch up with all the long-overdue reviews of gear that I had a chance to use, but never had a chance to write about.

There are more powerful mirrorless cameras on the market, but if you're looking to spend less than $1,000 including a lens, Sony's Alpha 6000 is a solid pick.

Recent years have seen some very cool Sony cameras: the first full-frame compact camera, the RX1, as well as the first full-frame interchangeable-lens compacts, the a7 and a7R. In the midst of all that full-frame hoopla, the APS-C-format NEX-6 debuted to relatively minor fanfare, although its fans...

Possibly the best bang for your buck camera on the market! This little guy can do quite a bit. I have an A7II that I primarily shoot with, and after using this a6000, I am blown away at how good it really is.

16 October 2014

Great product, easy to use and offers very good image quality. Most DSLR users will want one of these eventually. Why because its easy to get on with your work, mimics many much more expensive cameras on the market today.

    wish it were little less money for lenses

16 April 2017

Great camera with excellent sensor & processor. I've had it for 3-4 weeks and have taken it for several photo shoots and am very happy with the result. I purchased both the Sony 35mm f/1.8 prime and the 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 zoom and am particularly impressed by the sharpness of the prime lens.

    Menu system not logically organized

2 January 2017

The camera is not user friendly for a beginner, but it gave me something to learn. You will find quickly that a 50mm lens that it comes with is not very functional in a lot of areas, but it was well worth the price.

  • +

    The quaity of the resolution is unmatched.

    No digital zoom.

This is a good camera for the investment. The mirrorless technology is a benefit for travel compared to my large backpack with multiple cameras and lens combinations.<br />Great starter set and general purpose camera for a range of usees.

    Lag / Shutter Delay

22 July 2017

Usually shoot with Nikon DSLRs. Wanted something I would have with me more often due to size and flexibility, without losing image quality. This fits the bill perfect and not sure how often I'll drag out the bigger DSLRs anymore!

21 November 2016

Love it so far. I have never used a mirrorless camera before so am in the learning process now. Don't get much info with the camera so you have to rely on someone who is camera savvy or the internet. I did purchase a "how to" book that is very good.

24 December 2014

I am just beginning to dive into photography and was recommended by a few people with more experience that compact system cameras were the way to go. I researched for quite a few days before I decided on this package.

  • +

    - Excellent price for all that's included. I was skeptical that everything listed actually came with the package since this sells for the same price that most places just charge for the camera and one lens.

  • -

    - If you don't have a lens for closer shots, you'll need to keep that in mind to invest in one if you want to take pictures of objects closer than 10 feet away.
