For capturing crucial moments that go by in a blink, the a6000 can shoot 11 photos in one second. It’s compact and easy to use, too. Two quick-access dials let you change settings on the fly. Very intuitive.

Features

All the quality in half the size & weight of other DSLRs

The α6000 is a super compact Mirrorless camera that’s about half the size and weight of a typical DSLR, yet it has the same size APS-C image sensor as most DSLRs. The interchangeable lenses and E-mount system make the α6000 more versatile than almost any other camera on the market.

    So, I am not sure how to write this review. We had to order this camera twice. The first time we ordered it, it had scratches and appeared used (the cords weren’t wrapped neatly or bagged, etc) and they went us the black version when we wanted the silver one. We reordered it and sent it back. The second camera was excellent. We wanted this camera because it is smaller and easy to travel with. We took it with us to Europe for three months. We were very impressed with the quality of the photos for the price and size of the camera. We frequently have people ask what camera we used. It also does ok in low light scenarios. We are by no means professional photographers, but we appreciate quality. I’ve attached a couple photos, so that you can see for yourself. They are in the raw and have no editing. Don’t mind my photograph. It was just my husband and I traveling, so those are the only options I have to show a portrait. 🙂 Hopefully this is helpful!

    I am a pro and yes this is good enough for any professional work you can throw at it. To qualify myself, I have a successful photography business and I have been in the industry since I was 16 years old. I am now 32. I have shot every level of camera there is and 4 bad Nikons in a row pointed me towards the mirrorless revolution. I have owned many mirrorless cameras from Olympus, Fuji, and Sony. Let me say my Sony mirrorless cameras are my dream system. I finally have lost my gear acquisition syndrome. I currently shoot weddings, family portraits, and commercial work with the A7 and the A6000. I owned but sold the A7ii. To get it out of the way, I get asked all the time but don’t you miss the speed of your Nikons? The answer is no! If you can’t shoot a bride walking down the isle with these very quick cameras, a Nikon isn’t going to save you from your lack of skill. You should not be experimenting with someone’s most important memories of you can’t work with these cameras. I have thrown every difficult lighting situation at these cameras and they have never let me down. Now to the A6000. There is currently no better camera for the money right now. For under $500 you can get one of the best performing cameras focus wise. The images are impeccably sharp and unlike Nikon, there are never any back focus issues and I have no trouble nailing the shot on the first time every time. The grain structure is wonderful and I never have any issues shooting at ISO 6400. That being said, I come from the film days and have no trouble with a little grain. I am not a noise snob and to those who are you are losing out on some wonderful personality in your images by not pushing the ISO boundaries. To those who are full frame snobs, I can get amazing bokeh out of the A6000 especially when paired with my Zeiss 55. I no longer have to kill my back with heavy gear and electronic EVFs are a revelation. No more chimping because I get to adjust my shot in real time. Take it from someone who has spent way too much on gear in the past in search for the dream system. You do not have to go broke to get unreal results. This camera will never let you down especially if you know what you are doing. If you don’t know what you are doing, this camera is very forgiving. Happy shooting and hope this review helps.

    I am new to photography, and I love this camera. I’ve taken it to a few countries as well as some *sort of* high adventure camping. Small enough to carry around with the lens I have. I’m addicted and have acquired a few more lenses and some gear for it. I don’t have any complaints, but don’t know enough about photography to really give this any more of a detailed review for now. I’ve forced myself to shoot manual and read about how cameras work and this is a really fun camera to work with. I’ve come pretty far and enjoy the fact that I can be lazy in some situations and use the various auto settings. Often those come out better than my compositions! Gave some nice candid pictures to a few of my family members for Christmas. They came out really well and I guess I can get really large prints too since the megapixels are high. I have yet to do that, but so far this has been a wonderful hobby to get addicted to.

    Professional photographer MASSIVELY IMPRESSED!I purchased this camera as our “family fun” and vacation camera (when do not want to lug around our heavy pro bodies and lenses).Highlights:The AP-C sized sensor is really amazing. The image quality is fantastic. The viewfinder is appreciated and functional!Pro’s:-Image quality rivals my old D7000, which was far heavier, bigger, more cumbersome and more expensive-Wifi is a GREAT feature! I can now take professional quality photos and send it to my smart phone for immediate posting to Facebook.-Digital viewfinder is great because it shows in real-time what your manual adjustments will look when you take your photo (as opposed to the snap/review process with pro bodies). It also turns the screen on/off automatically to conserve battery power.-Size and weight, I cannot believe they crammed so much tech into such a small body at such an affordable price!-Great lenses available (sold separately) for more advanced users or those looking for pro quality photos. #1 recommendation SEL35F18 35mm f/1.8 prime lens (becomes a fast 50 for this crop sensor, with stabilization)Cons:-In camera processing not as advanced as the older and lesser qualified Nikon J bodies-Not as weather sealed as Olympus or other mirrorless bodies (I was originally going to get another Nikon 1 series the AW for all weather, but the image quality wasn’t nearly as good… still, if I’m shooting in the snow/rain I’ll be paranoid this camera will break if getting wet or super humid as opposed to many other weather sealed options out there).-Raw quality isn’t easily compatible with Photoshop and RAW’s aren’t as impressive of an improvement/versatility as my Nikon bodies. Net, if you get this camera, just use it as a JPEG shooter and save on the card/computer memory.Some background on me; I shoot professionally and use Nikon bodies. My previous mirror less was a J3, but the image quality was too poor in low light conditions which led me to find an alternative. I am incredibly impressed with the Sony!If you want a camera you can take snowboarding or surfing I suggest the Nikon AW1 (more expensive and less image quality, but water/shock/freeze proof), if you take your camera in less harsh environments but still feel the in camera processing is important or would like a camera which handle the rain I suggest an Olympus, for a cheaper camera the Nikon J’s are great.If you want one of the best quality mirrorless cameras, and image quality is your priority, this is it.

    Photography is my most favorite hobby. I don’t do it professionally nor do I get paid for my work, but I consider myself an enthusiast. I have invested thousands of dollars in camera gear, lightroom, and photoshop, etc. and this is THE camera I would take with me whenever I go traveling. It’s lightweight, the battery lasts me all day, and I don’t really have to think about adjusting shutter speed and aperture etc. It’s super quick and easy to use, which is what I like and need whenever I go traveling. The angle is also wide enough to get the most in a picture, and the pictures come our really clear and pigmented. The kit lens isn’t the best for portrait photography if that’s what you’re looking to do since a 3.0f aperture doesn’t provide the best bokeh. Usually portrait photography is done with aperture below 2.0f for the best results, but those lens definitely cost A LOT. This camera is great for landscapes and pictures where you want all the details. It’s great for the price too. Depends on what you need it for, but overall a solid and wonderful camera!

    As a former A5000 owner I greatly admired the added features of the A6000 such as a viewfinder and faster autofocus. I am sure others can easily enumerate the multiplicity of high end features that were built into this initial version of the A6000 series.It’s compact, relatively lightweight, and when combined with the 18-135mm lens is a superb walk-around camera that takes beautiful pictures. I initally used it with the standard kit 16-50 mm and 55-210mm lens and while the quality of the pictures from the kit lens was okay, the sheer inconvenience of switching lens in mid-stream began to take its toll. The number of features and options for this camera is overwhelming. Unfortunately, Sony needs to hire a better team of manual writers. The instructions lack clarity in many cases. I suppose that was not the intention of the included manual. It strikes me as merely an encyclopedic listing of every camera feature. You are encouraged to investigate Sony Support oniline for help. I can see it now, “Hold that pose while I use my smartphone to figure out how to take this shot!”Pairing it with your smartphone or tablet is not easy and I still haven’t figured it out completely. The Internet has lots of suggestions on how to do it. And like myself there are many who can’t get it right.Fortunately this isn’t required for taking great shots. Because of the compact size, if you have large hands you may find it difficult to access some of the various buttons and dials vs using a standard DSLR .Picky points: (1) The movie recording button could be larger and better positioned – maybe on the top rather than the side edge. (2) The 18-135mm lens shows vignetting at the 18mm setting in raw only. It does not appear in JPG at any setting for this lens. And it does not show at 22mm. raw. (3) the built-in flash will cast a small shadow when used with the 18-135mm lens especially when zoomed. (4) Creating panorama shots takes a bit of practice to get the right pace for panning the panorama scene. Thus practice before you use it. (5) The 18-135mm lens is auto focus but NOT auto zoom. Its manual Zoom and I really like the feel, not too loose and just the right amount of tension when zooming in and out. Because it’s NOT auto zoom, remember to manually retract the lens when storing away the camera.The good stuff: Lovely pictures, pretty accurate colours even with kit lens, very fast focus, the 11-shots per second speed is remarkable with no apparent lag, Bokeh with either the kit lens or the 18-135mm lens is surprisingly good, (and yes, there are settings to controol that to some extent apparently), built in flash is adequate, except for the Movie mode dial, the remainder of the controls are well positioned and relatively easy to activate. Great improvement over the A5000.

    I cannot tell you enough how much I love my Sony a6000. It is my most prized possession! This last July I started a travel blog (http://becauseshecantravel.com) and needed to “up my photography game”. After lots of shopping around and reviews, this seemed like the obvious choice. I got a screamin’ deal over Black Friday that includes the telephoto lens and a camera bag. I’m a fairly beginner photographer, but have taken classes sporadically and have gotten some great photos out of my iPhone camera. However, the jump from iPhone camera to this camera…wow. You will be so amazed!After using for about three months, here are my main takeaways:- Buy the telephoto lens, it is AMAZING. I wish I could always shoot with that lens, everything is perfectly crisp.- YouTube has a crap ton of helpful how-to videos on this camera. I had a weird auto-crop thing happening and was able to turn it off through YouTube tutorials. Same with the beeping sound when you focus. Check out the videos for sure if you have any questions.- The battery definitely runs out quickly. Since I had read about this issue before buying the camera, I invested in a charger with two additional batteries (NP FW50 RAVPower Camera Battery Charger Set), which was absolutely worth it and has been necessary more than once. You will run out of battery after about 300 photos (which goes surprisingly fast).- The process to switch lenses is super easy, well done Sony!- This is a great first step to professional photography. Particularly for travelers! It is very lightweight, even with the whole camera bag you hardly even feel it. An important feature for those of us on the go.- It has a pop-up flash! I didn’t realize this when I bought it, so that was a pleasant surprise.- The function to wirelessly transfer photos from my camera to my cell phone is hands-down my favorite feature. When I’m traveling wi-fi and computers can be spotty. Having the ability to send photos directly to my phone, to then post on social media, is invaluable. I think they undersell this feature, it’s so easy and useful!Overall, I love this camera and will recommend it to anyone and everyone who will listen to me.

    Simply one of the best cameras I have ever used, and for the price, you can’t beat it. I bought the package deal with the standard kit lens and the 55-210mm lens, and especially with the 55-210mm, I’ve taken some of the best photos I’ve ever taken, and I’ve only scratched the surface of what this camera can do!What I love:–Compact size and weight! At work, I use a Nikon D300s, and the weight difference is amazing. The Sony a6000 is so light, it’s just a joy to carry around and use!–Tons of features! Auto modes for beginning photographers, but it has the ability to go all manual for more advanced photographers–FAST shutter! I mean fast. Up to 11 frames per second!–PEAKING on manual focus!! This means that when you look at the view screen or optical viewfinder on manual focus, whatever is in focus gets a slight red outline. Fantastic feature! I haven’t mastered the art of tack sharp focus yet, but this helps me be sure that I’m in focus!–View screen on the back can tilt up or down, so you can have the camera higher or lower, and still be able to see the screen–Programmable buttons that you can set to work just about any feature of the camera. Use Auto Focus Lock alot? Just set one of the buttons, and have instant access to that feature!–Face programming! Shooting a birthday, and want to be sure the birthday boy or girl’s face is always the focus? Store a photo of their face in the camera, and from then on, whenever the camera sees that face, it will lock on. Amazing.–Auto Eye Focus! Taking a portrait, and want to make sure the eyes are in focus? Use auto eye focus, and the camera will automatically find the eye and focus accordingly.What I don’t like so much (but these are really just nitpicky, since I pretty much love everything…)–Kit lens doesn’t seem to be as good a quality as the 55-210mm. You might want to consider a different lens.–Screen on the back is hard to see in sunlight. Luckily, the camera also has an optical viewfinder, and you can look there to take photos, or even review photos you’ve taken. Everything you see on the back screen you can see in the viewfinder.–Learning curve. This has a gigantic menu, and lots of buttons and things, so it can be a chore to learn. My advice? Find one of Gary Fong’s videos online or at sonya6000.com.–Battery could last a little longer, IMHOSo many fantastic features in one camera! Sorry to gush, but I’m just in love with my Sony a6000. You absolutely cannot get a better camera for the money. Great job, Sony!

    The Sony a6000 is by far the best camera that you can get for your buck and a steal if you can get a decent deal like I did.The a6000 is the first proper camera I have purchased in my life. I had dabbled with photography here and there using cameras that were given to me by relatives, and certainly nothing fancy. When phones started having cameras that became my primary tool for taking photos and had always thought that a proper camera was an overkill in this day and age. Boy was I wrong.This camera is loaded with features and has everything that a beginner would want. It is a relatively affordable camera for families looking to take shots of their kids, family gatherings, etc. With the proper lens it can get you truly stunning photos that can be used professionally. The interface is easy to use, and there are plenty of resources available online to learn how to use the a6000 effectively. For me, photography is not my main hobby, so I don’t need an expensive full frame camera.The ability to transfer your pictures to your phone via Wi-Fi is a must for relatively quick sharing of photos to Facebook or Instagram. Another thing I really like about this camera is the size and how solid it feels. It won’t win any prizes for ergonomics but you can definitely tell you are holding a quality product. A lot of the Pros complain that the focus system is not as good as those found in a DSLR but for me I found it more than good enough. You can track your subjects in motion, quickly assign eye auto-focus to a custom button. I really don’t see myself getting more fancy when it comes to Auto Focus.Now the negatives is that the lenses are a little pricier than I would like, and there is a lower number of lenses specifically designed for the APS C sensor. You will see lots of “E Mount” lenses but a lot of them work best in the more expensive A 7 Sony Full Frame cameras. Thankfully the companies Sigma and Rokinon (Samyang) have made some quality lenses that fill the gaps at a more reasonable price.Having used the camera for about six months here is what I recommend in terms of lenses:* Sony 50mm f1.8 with OSS – This should be the first lens that you get after the kit lens. Just incredible image quality for the price. Some people might say that you need the Sony 35mm f1.8 instead. For that one you have to be willing to spend as of this writing $150 more. My only negative comment with the 50mm lens is that it will be hard to take photos in tight spaces. You will run into this issue when wanting group photographs in smaller rooms. However, I found myself taking a lot more pictures outside where the way to solve this problem is to back away from the subject.* Rokinon/Samyang 12mm f2.0 – This is the wide angle lens to get for the a6000. It is incredibly sharp, and very affordable compared to the Sony alternative. With this lens you can get a lot of the room in tight spots. Moreover this solves my primary issue with the 50mm.Overall, I can’t rave about the a6000 enough. It is as close to the perfect beginner camera as you can get. Affordable, loaded with features, great image quality.

    I bought this as my first interchangeable lens camera. I’ve used/handled Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras and I prefer the A6000 to them because the Sony interface is intuitive and I like the layout of the buttons and viewfinder. Overall, I’m extremely satisfied with the camera. It’s light, easy to use, and has plenty of features for anyone beginning in photography. I bought mine at $648 a while ago so at $548 it’s a great deal.The kit lens works for the basics but it is really nothing spectacular. It’s also relatively cheaply made. Mine suffered from an equipment malfunction and is now in five separate pieces. The body itself didn’t take any damage and it was about a 5 foot drop from a tripod so the build quality of the body is solid.The A6000 has surpassed my expectations for just about anything I throw at it. I’ve done nature, astro, street, portrait, and product/studio photography and I’ve been satisfied with just about everything I’ve shot.
