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...

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,...

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...

The a6000 is one of Sony's first E-mount cameras to eschew the NEX branding that first introduced the company's range of mirrorless cameras around four years ago. And, while it may look very similar to the

Expert review by : Jim Fisher (pcmag.com)

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

 

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 Mirrorless Camera Review: Fast and Feature Rich

 

As the mirrorless, interchangeable-lens camera market continues to grow, it's more difficult to make a decision about which camera to purchase. Since the a6000 came out, Sony has released three newer models, the a6300 , a6400, and the a6500 . Both the...

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

Sony’s a6000 is a midrange mirrorless camera that offers an excellent feature set, fast continuous performance and top-notch image quality.

Sony Alpha 6000 Review: Full In-Depth Hands-on

 

We have the brand new Sony Alpha 6000 with us which is the successor to the Sony Alpha 5000 or NEX 6. Sony has basically combined the best of the features from the NEX 6, NEX 7 and Alpha 5000 to give you a consolidated Alpha mirrorless camera which is...

Now the Sony Alpha 6000 has a crazy auto focus system with 179 face detection points. However these points are not available while recording videos and only contrast detection points are available so video recording via this is not exactly very fast....
