The Sony ILCE-6000 connected to a computer

The a6000 camera can make a direct connection with your computer via USB, or use built-in Wi-Fi to upload photos.

DSLR quality in a point-and-shoot body

For sharp, detailed photos from a light camera body, the Sony Alpha a6000 is tough to beat. A large 24.3 megapixel CMOS sensor guarantees high-resolution images. The sensor works with Sony's lightning-quick BIONZ™ X processor to record greater natural detail, richer tonal gradations, lower noise and more realistic images whether you shoot stills or video. Enhanced Fast Hybrid auto focus combines speedy phase-detection AF with highly accurate contrast-detection AF, so you get ultra-fine focus in the blink of an eye. Once it's locked in, you can shoot up to 11 frames per second—ideal for immortalizing a touchdown run, or baby's first steps.

Starter lens included

One of the most exciting features of the a6000 zoom kit is the included 16-50mm lens. It's a perfect lens to get you started shooting great photos right out of the box. You're covered for portraits and action shots, with a little extra zoom for good measure. The camera body is compatible with Sony's line of E-mount lenses, so you can always add other specialized lenses if the need arises sometime down the road.

See the light

If you're shooting at a birthday party, and you want to make sure you can see faces in a darkened room, you may want to use the built-in flash. For more lighting options, the a6000 has a hot shoe that will let you add a sophisticated accessory flash when you want one. Then there are those times when you just want to use the light you have: overlooking Paris at night, or christmas lights in your hometown, for instance. For those times when atmosphere matters, the camera has an extended ISO (exposure) range from 100-25000. That's plenty of flexibility for a low-light masterpiece.

Share instantly with Wi-Fi

The a6000 can team up with your smartphone or tablet, allowing you to wirelessly transfer photos and video to your mobile device for instant online sharing. If you're an Android™ user, Near Field Communication allows you to pair the camera to a compatible device with just a quick tap.

Want a camera you can grow into? Try a mirrorless camera.

These digital cameras combine the creative options of a DSLR with portability that's more like that of a point-and-shoot. Their automatic modes will help you take striking pictures from day one without having to be an expert. However, like DSLRs, mirrorless cameras have interchangeable lenses, and advanced control and processing. You can explore these features for even better results as you take time to learn more about the hobby. Cameras in this class have large image sensors for beautifully detailed pictures, but their mirrorless design means the camera bodies and matching lenses can be smaller, lighter, and more portable — great for snapping memorable pics when you're on the move.

Recording Features

Overview: The Sony α6000 (ILCE-6000L) alpha series camera kit contains the α6000 camera body and the E16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS zoom lens (SELP1650), along with a rechargeable battery, adjustable neck strap, and USB cable. The α6000 has built-in Wi-Fi, an APS-C-sized image sensor, and is compatible with Sony E-mount lenses. With the LA-EA 4, LA-EA3, LA-EA2 or LA-EA1 Mount Adapter, the camera can also use Sony A-mount lenses, and select Minolta/Konica lenses.

3" Tiltable LCD Screen: The α6000 uses a 3" LCD screen with 921,600 dots. You can tilt the LCD up approximately 90° for low angle shots or approximately 45° for high angle photography. The brightness of the LCD monitor can be adjusted in 5 steps from -2 to +2.

0.39" OLED Electronic Viewfinder: The 0.5" high contrast OLED electronic color viewfinder has 1,440,000 dots, and provides approximately 100% field of view. You can adjust the brightness in 5 steps.

Still Image Recording Formats: The α6000 can record still images JPEG file format in Standard and Fine compression rates. You can choose to shoot in 3:2 or 16:9 aspect ratio, and in large, medium, and small image sizes. You can also record still images using the RAW format, which is uncompressed with no processing performed in the camera. RAW images must be transferred to a computer for processing, editing, and printing using the downloadable Image Data Converter software.

MP4 1440 x 1080 12M 12 Mbps 1440 x 1080 (30fps)
MP4 VGA 3M 3 Mbps 640 x 480 (30fps)

Dual Media Options: The α6000 camera accepts two types of media for capturing still images: Memory Stick PRO Duo, Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo, and Memory Stick XC-HG Duo, plus SD, SDHC, and SDXC Memory Cards. The maximum number of images that can be recorded on a memory card formatted with this camera varies slightly between the two types of media.

Clear Image Zoom: Clear Image Zoom increases the effective focal length of the lens by up to 2.8x (Medium images) or 4x (Small images) by digitally magnifying the center of the image. Combined with the camera's Digital Zoom and Optical Zoom, you can increase magnification up to 8x over the lens' maximum focal length.

Fast Hybrid AF System: The α6000's Fast Hybrid auto focus system combines phase-detection auto focus with highly accurate contrast-detection AF for lightning fast auto focusing. Phase Detection uses 179 densely placed AF points to quickly move the lens to bring the subject nearly into focus. Then Contrast Detection's 25 focus points fine-tunes the focusing, resulting in the sharpest images. You can choose from the following Auto/Manual Focus Modes:

  • AF-S (Single-shot Auto focus): The camera focuses and the focus is locked when you press the shutter button halfway down. Recommended for use with motionless subjects.
  • AF-C (Continuous Auto focus): The camera continues to focus when you press and hold the shutter button halfway down. Recommended for use when the subject is in motion.
  • AF-A (Automatic AF): Single-shot AF and Continuous AF are switched according to the movement of the subject.
  • DMF (Direct Manual Focusing): After focusing automatically, you can make fine focusing adjustments manually.
  • Manual Focus: When it is difficult to get the proper focus in auto focus mode, you can adjust the focus manually. This mode allows you to set the distance of a subject by rotating the focusing ring to achieve a sharp focus.

AF (Auto focus) Area: You can select between 4 settings:

  • Wide: The camera focuses automatically on a subject in all ranges of the image.
  • Zone: You can select a zone (consisting of 9 focus areas) on the monitor on which to focus.
  • Center-Weighted: The camera uses the AF area located in the center area exclusively.
  • Flexible Spot: You can change the size of and move the focusing area in order to focus on a small subject or narrow area.

Focus Lock: If a subject is off-center and outside of the AF area, you can lock the focus of the camera.

AF Illuminator: When you press the shutter button halfway down a red illuminator is emitted until the focus is locked. Under dark lighting conditions or when you shoot a low contrast subject, the AF illuminator allows the camera to focus more easily on the subject. The AF illuminator has a range of 3'-4" to 9'-9".

Drive Modes: The camera offers the following shooting modes:

  • Single Shooting: Default setting for standard picture taking.
  • Continuous Shooting: At full resolution, the camera can record continuously up to 2.5 frames per second. In Speed Priority Continuous, the frame rate increases to a maximum of 11 fps.
  • Self-Timer: You can set the camera to three different self-timers:
    • 10 Second: After you press the shutter button, the shutter will be released about 10 seconds later. This is convenient when the photographer wants to appear in a photo.
    • 2 Second: After you press the shutter button, the shutter will be released about 2 seconds later. This is convenient to reduce camera-shake.
    • 10 Seconds/3 or 5 Images: The camera records 3 or 5 images continuously after a 10 second delay. You can choose the best shot from the shots taken.
  • Bracket Shooting: Bracket shooting allows you to shoot 3 or 5 images, each with different degrees of exposure (base exposure, under exposure, and over exposure). You can select the bracket step value from 0.3EV, 0.5EV, 0.7EV, 1.0EV, 2.0EV, or 3.0EV. After shooting, you can select an image that suits your intention.

Shooting Modes: The top-mounted Mode Dial lets you select from the following shooting modes:

  • iAuto (Intelligent Auto): This mode allows easy shooting with settings adjusted automatically.
  • iAuto+ (Superior Auto): The camera recognizes and evaluates the shooting condition and sets the appropriate settings automatically. The camera saves one appropriate image by combining or separating images as necessary.
  • Program Auto: For shooting with the exposure adjusted automatically (both the shutter speed and the aperture value), while allowing you to adjust other settings manually.
  • Aperture Priority: This mode allows you to shoot after adjusting the aperture value manually, letting the camera set the appropriate shutter speed. This mode gives you greater control over the depth of field.
  • Shutter Speed Priority: This mode allows you to shoot after adjusting the shutter speed manually, letting the camera set the appropriate aperture. With a high shutter speed, the moving subject appears as if it is frozen on the image. With a slow shutter speed, the moving subject appears as if it were flowing.
  • Manual Exposure: This mode allows you to shoot after adjusting the exposure (shutter speed and aperture) manually.
  • Scene Selection: You can select an appropriate mode for the subject or the shooting conditions to allow you to shoot the image with a suitable setting for the subject: Portrait, Infant, Night Portrait, Night Scene, Backlight Portrait, Backlight, Landscape, Macro, Spotlight, Low Light, Night Scene (with tripod), and Hand-held Twilight.
  • Sweep Panorama: Shoot expansive scenery or high-rise buildings with dynamic composition.
  • Memory Recall: You can register often-used camera settings (including Shooting Mode, Aperture, Shutter speed) to the Memory Recall (MR) position on the Mode Dial for easy recall.
  • Movies: You can record movies in Full HD or standard definition in 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio. When selected on the Mode Dial, you can select the desired movie settings, including Program Auto, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and Manual Exposure.

Picture Effect: In Intelligent Auto or Superior Auto mode, you can select Picture Effect to get one the following effect filters to achieve more impressive and artistic expression: Toy Camera, Pop Color, Posterization, Retro Photo, Soft High-key, Partial Color (Red, Green, Blue, or Yellow), High Contrast Mono, Soft Focus, HDR Painting, Rich-tone Mono, Miniature, Watercolor, and Illustration.

Creative Style: The Creative Style function lets you select the desired image processing. You can adjust exposure (shutter speed and aperture) as you like with Creative Style. You can choose from: Standard, Vivid, Neutral, Clear, Deep, Light, Portrait, Landscape, Sunset, Night Scene, Autumn Leaves, Black & White, or Sepia. You can also adjust Contrast, Saturation, and Sharpness.

Exposure Compensation: Exposure compensation is used to alter the camera's standard exposure setting. You can make the image look lighter (increased exposure) or darker (decreased exposure) The exposure compensation amount can be set up to +/-5.0 EV in 1/3-step or 1/2-step increments. When shooting movies, the exposure can be adjusted in a range of +/-2.0 EV.

AE Lock: You can fix the exposure before deciding on the composition when taking a picture. This is effective when the metering object and focusing object are different or when you want to shoot continuously while keep the same exposure value.

Metering Mode: A 1200-zone evaluative sensing system provides multi-pattern measuring for superior exposure control accuracy in a wide range of lighting conditions. You can select the method for measuring the brightness of a subject from the following three methods:

  • Multi Segment: This method uses the whole screen divided into 1200 zones to measure light.
  • Center Weighted: While emphasizing the central area of the screen, this method measure the average brightness of the entire screen.
  • Spot: This method measure light only in the spot metering circle in the center of the frame.

White Balance: You can adjust the color tones according to the lighting conditions. You can choose from the following WB options, and adjust the +/- 3 to fine tune the colors: Auto WB, Daylight, Shade, Cloudy, Incandescent, Fluorescent (Warm White), Fluorescent (Cool White), Fluorescent (Day White), Fluorescent (Daylight), Flash, Color Temperature, Color Filter, Underwater, and Custom.

Color Temperature/Color Filter: You can adjust the white balance further by selecting Color Temperature or Color Filter in the Custom White Balance option. With Color Temperature, the higher the number, the more reddish the image, and the lower the number, the more bluish the image. Color Filter achieves the effect of Color Compensation filters for photography. Based on the set color temperature as the standard, the color can be compensated to Green (G) or Magenta (M).

ISO Settings: ISO is a unit of measurement of sensitivity to light. The larger the number, the higher the sensitivity. The camera's ISO can be set manually or automatically, depending upon the exposure mode. The manual ISO range is 100 to 25600 in 1/3EV increments. For movies, the ISO sensitivity is 100-12800, selectable in 1 EV steps.

Built-in Flash: The α6000 has a pop-up flash. When using the built-in or an optional external flash, the camera offers several Flash Modes: Autoflash, Fill-flash, Slow Sync, Rear Sync, and Wireless. Red-eye Reduction can be turned on or off for each Flash Mode. You can adjust the amount of flash light in a range of -3.0 EV to +3.0 EV with the Flash Compensation feature. Flash Bracketing is also available.

Multi-Interface Shoe: The α6000 is equipped with the Multi-Interface Shoe, allowing you to use an external flash, such as the HVL-F20M, HVL-F43M, or HVL-F60M. The ECM-XYST1M stereo microphone is also compatible.
