This degree of performance not only puts the A6000 ahead of most mirrorless cameras at any price point, but also beyond what you can expect from a DSLR in the same category. Nikon and Canon may also offer effective continuous AF, but you'll need to compose with their viewfinders alone, concentrate...

  • +

    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.

The Sony a6000 was always going to be up against it, facing some stiff competition and replacing a model which had stood in the range for some four years.

  • +

    Good high ISO performance; Great specification; AF speed

  • -

    LCD screen could be better specified; EVF a touch behind competition

The Sony Alpha 6000 focuses instantly and shoots at 11.1fps. Its image quality matches its speed, making it our Editors' Choice.

  • +

    Incredibly fast autofocus. 11.1fps burst shooting with tracking focus. Amazing high ISO image quality. Sharp OLED EVF. Tilting rear display. In-body flash and multi-function hot shoe. Wi-Fi with NFC. Downloadable camera apps. 1080p60 video capture.

  • -

    Overly sensitive eye sensor. Slow start up. EVF lags in very dim light. Lacks analog mic input. Some apps must be purchased.

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...

  • -

    Flash exposures often misjudged, No In-camera Raw conversion option, Noise reduction can be a bit heavy-handed, No touchscreen, No electronic level gauge, Battery life feels low (though provided charge percentage info helps judge remaining life), Specifying an autofocus point can be cumbersome, Lens...

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...

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.

The Sony Alpha 6000 arrived on the scene as the hotly anticipated successor to the NEX-6 (and possibly the higher-end NEX-7, as well), and it boasts a raft of upgrades and refinements. Chief among them are a new 24-megapixel sensor and a much improved hybrid CDAF/PDAF autofocus system.

  • +

    Amazing amount of quality for the price, Crisp JPEG images with few sharpening artifacts at low ISOs, Excellent high ISO performance (from RAW) for a 24MP APS-C sensor, Very good dynamic range, Very high resolution, Increased ISO range, Blazing fast Hybrid AF, 179 phase-detect points covering ~84%...

  • -

    Sluggish startup, Soft corners from the kit lens at wide angle, Kit lens produces strong barrel distortion and C.A. at wide angle in uncorrected images, Larger than average minimum macro area, Default chroma noise reduction is a little heavy-handed, Revised area-specific noise reduction can make...

28 January 2016

After using the Sony A6000 for a few months on two separate occasions, I can honestly say that it is one of the most capable and versatile mirrorless cameras on the market. With its compact and lightweight camera body, comfortable grip, fast and accurate hybrid autofocus system, bright and...

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.

  • +

    Incredibly fast autofocus, Excellent image quality, Beginner-friendly interface, Integrated WiFiand EVF, Solid battery life

  • -

    No microphone input jack

As the mirrorless, interchangeable-lens camera market continues to grow, it’s more difficult to make a decision about which camera to purchase. Other new mirrorless models, such as the Olympus OM-D E-M10 ($799 with lens) and the Samsung NX30 ($1,000 with lens), also offer solid feature sets and...

  • +

    Fast continuous shooting and autofocus; Compact body; Multiple custom control options; Above-average image quality; Excellent low-light performance

  • -

    Vast array of camera settings may be overwhelming; Noise reduction can be excessive; Clunky adjustment of focus point selection

You get more than what you pay for. The Sony Alpha a6000 is simply an awesome camera. When you compare it to other cameras both DSLR and Mirrorless in its class, this camera outshines them all. Stills are sharp and the colors are good.

1 May 2016

Love the Camera. I grew up using SLRs. I am traveling more and I don't want to lug around a bulky and heavy DSLR but I want interchangeable lenses and features of a DSLR. Takes great pictures. More customization features than you can count. The new a6300 does not seem to be worth the premium.

  • +

    light, fast at auto focus, more features than many DSLRs, built in viewfinder for those sunny days.

  • -

    not a large number of E-mount lenses available. it can use Nikor or Cannon lenses with an adapter.

30 November 2015

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.

  • +

    Easy to Use, Small / Compact

    Lag / Shutter Delay

13 February 2015

What a surprise ! ordered the product on Saturday received it on Monday!! made my day ! Plus my girlfriend paid the same price from somewhere else and only got the camera ! I got way more !! I am loving my new camera and everything else that came with it !

30 September 2015

After a little practice you will be a pro at the settings on this camera. Takes great pictures and videos and for those who like to use manual mode, it has that too!

  • +

    Lightweight. Comes with all you need to get up and running as soon as you get your package!

  • -

    Hmm. None.

22 June 2015

It took me a while and a lot of research to finally find the camera that will be good for my intended use. Watching Jason Lanier & Gary Fong online helped me a lot to decide to go with a mirrorless camera.

  • +

    The camera specifications say it all.

  • -

    It is not a perfect camera so prepare yourself and learn how to use it.

5 October 2015

First, I am not any species of professional photographer. Have been fascinated by light and shapes, and the drama that lurks there when captured aright, since I prowled Southern California rail yards in the late 50s, happy with the (not-new) entry level 35mm camera slung around my neck.

This camera takes great pictures. It is fairly lightweight. Like having a viewfinder.

  • +

    Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small/Compact

  • -

    operation manual very limited

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.

  • +

    Quality of images

  • -

    wish it were little less money for lenses

31 January 2016

Great camera package for those who want to get into a cropped sensor camera. The a6000 is an amazing camera and with the additional accessories will get you started with no regrets. Small enough to be a "cary around" camera with a lot of room grow and bests other makes on the market.
