Shoot in 0.06 seconds with ultra-fast autofocus

The perfect moment, captured

Unlike many competitors, the α6000’s Fast Hybrid AF combines the strengths of both phase- and contrast-detection autofocus. With a class-leading 179 phase detection points (covering almost the entire image) and a high-speed contrast-detection function, the result is not only an impressive 11 fps burst mode, but also highly accurate movement tracking for both stills and video.

Quality starts with the sensor

More area for more detailed images

The truth is simple: better images begin with bigger sensors, and 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. The result is 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.

Introducing ultra-fast autofocus

Capture everything from flying water droplets to fleeting smiles

An ultra-fast autofocus makes the α6000 one of the most versatile interchangeable-lens cameras available. At a mere 0.06 seconds, you're assured of getting the perfect shot in any situation, from family events to sports and nature.
