Sony Alpha 6000 review: a do-it-all mirrorless camera that's worth every penny

 

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

Sony is continuing its winning streak with the Alpha 6000. This well-rounded camera should last you for several years of top-notch shooting, and at $800 (or £669) with the 16-50mm power zoom lens, your wallet will be in good shape, too. Advanced...

Review: Sony Alpha 6000 mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera almost has it all

 

Sony's follow-up to its NEX-6 laps the field with its 11fps burst and comfortable design.

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.

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.

Sony a6000 Review

 

Sony's NEX-6 was a departure from the company's usual lineup of mirrorless cameras when it was introduced in the Fall of 2012. It slotted in between the various NEX-5 models and the NEX-7, and staked out a middle ground between the two, aiming to offer...

Sony Alpha 6000

 

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.

There's an eye sensor that automatically switches between the rear LCD and the EVF, but it's got a bit of a hair trigger. If you're using the camera near your body, it turns off the LCD when the Alpha is just 3 inches away from you, and even my index...

Sony α6000

 

Sony has announced its latest Alpha-series ILC (Interchangeable Lens Camera) system, the α6000 (or a6000). The α6000 features a large 24.3-megapixel Exmor APS-C HD CMOS image sensor. FYI, this is the image sensor size most commonly found on...

Sony A6000 Review

 

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...

It’s easy to fall into the trap of discounting interchangeable-lens cameras as subpar to their DSLR counterparts, and certainly the early generations perhaps focused more on affordability and size than they did image quality. It’s also clear that the...

Sony A6000 Review

 

The Sony A6000 is a new compact system camera featuring a 24.3-megapixel Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor, BIONZ X processor, a sensitivity range of ISO 100-25600, Fast Hybrid AF for optimal fast and precise autofocus as quick as 0.06sec with 25...

The Sony A6000 is a full-featured, responsive compact system camera that delivers excellent images in a variety of situations, all at a very competitive price that significantly undercuts its main rivals. Despite lacking a touchscreen interface and...

Sony A6000

 

The well-received Sony NEX-6 not only gets refreshed with the NEX "de-branding" we expected, but also upgraded with some very significant performance enhancements in the new Sony Alpha 6000 (from here on out called the A6000). Looking like a blend of...

Sony A6000 review

 

How a successful mirrorless camera from 2014 stacks up in 2022.

Fantastic value ; Fast burst shooting and AF ; Good upgrade path

No mic jack or 4K ; Fiddly Sony menus

For stills photographers, the 2014 Sony A6000 still stacks up really well. Its autofocus is fast and accurate, its burst-shooting is competitive today, and the images you get from its APS-C sensor are bright and vibrant, with good tonal range. It’s a...

Sony A6000 review

 

The Sony A6000 is a veteran of Sony's mirrorless camera range that dates right back to 2014 – so should you still buy it today?

Powerful features for stills ; Sharp 24MP sensor ; Good autofocus ; Built-in EVF

Handling poor with larger lenses ; Lacks 4K video ; Not so good at high ISOs

Old as it is, the Sony A6000 shows that many of the most important things we look for in a camera haven’t changed. Its 24-megapixel sensor is as competitive today as it was when this camera was launched. Its 11fps burst mode is rarely bettered, even...
