Clear Image Zoom: Clear Image Zoom increases the effective focal length of the lens by up to 2x (Large images), 2.8x (Medium images) or 4x (Small images) by digitally magnifying the center of the image. Combining the camera's Digital Zoom and Optical Zoom lets you increase magnification up to 8x over the lens' maximum focal length.
Fast Hybrid AF System: The α6100's Fast Hybrid auto focus system combines phase-detection auto focus with highly accurate contrast-detection AF for lightning fast auto focusing at a remarkable 0.02 seconds. Phase Detection uses 425 densely placed AF points to quickly move the lens to bring the subject nearly into focus. Then Contrast Detection's 425 focus points fine-tunes the focusing, resulting in the sharpest images. Fast Hybrid AF is available for still images and movies. 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.
- Expand Flexible Spot: You can move the focusing frame to a desired point on the screen, focusing on a small subject in a narrow area.
- Tracking: When the shutter button is pressed and held halfway down, the camera tracks the subject within the selected autofocus area.
Real-time Eye AF: Sony's Real-time Eye AF provides continuous eye tracking when shooting portraits in motion. You can prioritize either eye, and Eye AF works in difficult lighting, or when partially hidden. Real-time Eye AF is available for human subjects, as well as for animals.
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.
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 a continuous series of images. The maximum number of images that can be recorded is 11 (Hi+), 8 (Hi), 6 (Mid), or 3 (Low) per second. In Hi+ mode, you can take up to about 77 shots in JPEG (Standard) in one continuous burst.
- Self-Timer: You can set the camera to four 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.
- 5 Second: After you press the shutter button, the shutter will be released about 5 seconds later. This is convenient to reduce camera-shake.
- 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, 5 second, or 2 second delay. You can choose the best shot from the shots taken.
- Bracket Shooting: Bracket shooting allows you to shoot a series of photos, each with a slight variation, and choose the image that best suits your purpose. You can choose an exposure bracket, white balance bracket, and a DRO (Dynamic Range Optimization) bracket. Continuous brackets shoot the entire series of photos with one push of the shutter button. Single brackets require you to press the shutter button with each photo in the series. You can also combine bracket shooting with the self-timer, beginning the series of photos after a 2, 5, or 10 second delay.
Interval Shooting: You can automatically shoot a series of still images that you can stitch together to make a time-lapse movie (using Imaging Edge Viewer software). When setting up the interval shoot, you can set the starting time (1 second to 99:59 after pressing the shutter release), shooting interval between shots (1 second to 60 seconds), and the number of shots (1 to 9999 shots). Other interval shooting options incliude AE Tracking Sensitivity (High, Med, or Low), Silent Shooting (On/Off), Priority (when in Program Auto or Aperture Priority, and shutter speed becomes longer than the interval selected.)
Shooting Modes: The top-mounted Mode Dial lets you select from the following shooting modes:
- Auto: This mode allows easy shooting with settings adjusted automatically by the camera. You can switch between Intelligent Auto and Superior Auto.
- 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.
- 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 4K or Full HD in 16:9 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.
- S&Q Motion: For shooting slow-motion and quick-motion movies.
- Sweep Panorama: Shoot expansive scenery or high-rise buildings with dynamic composition.
- 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, Sports Action, Macro, Landscape, Sunset, Night Scene, Hand-held Twilight, Night Portrait, and Anti-Motion Blur.
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.

You can choose from: Standard, Vivid, Portrait, Landscape, Sunset, 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-pattern: 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 Auto, and Custom (1/2/3).
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 32000 in 1/3EV increments, with extended ISO to 51200. For movies, the ISO sensitivity is 100-32000, selectable in 1 EV steps.
