Sony A6100 review: Incredible autofocus performance for a budget camera


APS-C cameras are still important to Sony, and the A6100 is a big upgrade over the A6000. You now get a much improved autofocus system with intelligent face- and eye-tracking, along with 4K 30 fps video. Sony has also improved the color science and...

Best-in-class autofocus ; Sharp downsampled 4K video ; Accurate colors ; Good low light performance ; Flip-up display

Poor menu system ; Bad rolling shutter ; Low-resolution EVF

For its APS-C camera series, Sony has stuck with the "don't fix what ain't broke" mantra. I didn't think that was enough for the more expensive A6400 and A6600 cameras, given stiff competition from Fujifilm's X-T30 and X-T3, or Canon's M6 Mark II.

Sony a6100 Review


Light and compact. ; Built-in EVF. ; Tilting touch LCD. ; Superlative autofocus. ; Loads of lens choices. ; Up to 11fps Raw capture. ; 4K video.

Not as well-built as the a6400. ; Low-resolution EVF. ; 4K video can show some wobble. ; Underwhelming battery life. ; Charging port isn't USB-C.

The Sony a6100 is a compact, speedy camera with strong image quality and excellent autofocus. Family photographers will love it, but enthusiasts may want to consider the a6400 instead.

Sony a6100 review


Sony's newest entry-level mirrorless camera has a number of great upgrades, including 4K video and amazing autofocus. Yet, it remains true to its roots as an excellent compact camera.

Sony's stubborn embrace of poor interface design can be frustrating, but those drawbacks are minor for an otherwise-fantastic photographic device. The a6100 offers superb still and video image quality in all shooting conditions. And the device's...
