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: A great camera under $1,000


The Sony A6100 is one of the best deals in cameras. Using the same sensor and Real-Time autofocus system as the $1,400 A6600, it's an absolute steal at just $750. While it's not the prettiest or most intuitive camera on the market, it makes up for it...

Excellent value ; Great in-camera JPEG quality ; Industry-leading autofocus ; Good 4K video ; Built-in EVF

Sony A6100 Review


Announced alongside the flagship A6600, Sony also unveiled an entry- to intermediate-level APS-C mirrorless camera that sports a similar list of specs, features and performance upgrades along with a competitive, budget-friendly price.

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...

Sony A6100 review


The Sony A6100 is the successor to the one of the most popular mirrorless cameras ever. Is it up to the job?

Superb tracking autofocus Solid battery life Most controls are easy to use Sony’s app works well Lots of features in a compact body

No IBIS for video Limited touchscreen functions Relatively low-spec LCD and EVF

If you're looking for a small, beginner-friendly camera for both stills and video, then the A6100 is one of the best around. Its main strengths are its image quality, battery life and class-leading autofocus. The fact that it inherits many features...
