Test the limits of your creativity with the ultra-fast focusing SONY ILCE6000LB a6000 Mirrorless camera with 16-50mm lens - Black. Every artistic shot you take - from fast-action to candids - benefits from 24.3MP detail and BIONZ X processor. For capturing crucial moments that go by in a blink, the α6000 can shoot 11 photos in one second. It’s easy to use too, with two quick-access dials and custom buttons that let you change settings on the fly. Very intuitive.


  • The Power of Speed
    The Sony a6000 mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera features ultra-fast autofocus (0.06 seconds), 179 AF tracking points and 11 frames per second-while capturing 24.3MP of rich, professional detail. The future of digital imaging is here.


  • Fast Hybrid AF with 179 phase-detection points
    Enhanced Fast Hybrid AF (auto focus) combines speedy phase-detection AF with highly accurate contrast-detection AF. Accelerated through a new Spatial Object Detection algorithm, Fast Hybrid AF achieves among the fastest autofocusing performance of any camera (0.06 second).


  • Ultra-fast response up to 11 fps
    Capture the perfect moment – the a6000 realizes 11 frames per second continuous shooting with AF (Auto Focus) tracking by making the most of the wide-area 179-point phase-detection AF sensor. Even when dealing with a moving subject the a6000's superb moving-subject tracking performance ensures you get the shot during still or video capture.


  • High Resolution 24MP APS-C Sensor
    Get incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements thanks to the newly developed 24.3 megapixel Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor. It has higher resolution than most DSLRs in a body about half the size and weight. Moreover the α6000 adopts the same gapless on-chip lens structure as the award-winning a7 for ultimate image quality and light sensitivity.


  • What you see is what you get with an OLED Viewfinder
    View every scene in rich detail on the high contrast 1.4M dot Tru-Finder™ OLED Electronic Viewfinder. Featuring a new optical system with four double aspherical lenses, it delivers 100% frame coverage with an approximately 33° viewing angle for corner-to-corner visibility. The advantage of an EVF over an OVF is that the electronic viewfinder displays what will appear in your recordings, including the effects of your camera settings so you can fine-tune exposure, color and focus in your preview before you take the picture.


  • Frame at any angle with a tiltable 3 LCD
    The tiltable 3.0€ (921k dots) Xtra Fine LCD display makes it easy to photograph over crowds or capture pets eye to eye at low angles. Swinging up approx. 90° and down approx. 45° makes it easy to frame at any angle. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while WhiteMagic™ technology dramatically increases visibility in bright daylight.

Two dials on top and a rear-mounted control wheel allow quick selection of shooting modes and camera settings. In addition to the Fn button, there’s seven customizable buttons, which can be assigned any of 47 functions.


  • Stunning low light photos with ISO range of 100-25600
    With 20% higher sensitivity than the NEX-7 due to the newly developed Exmor® CMOS sensor and BIONZ® X processor, you get stunning detail in in low light from ISO range 100 – 25000. And for an additional burst of light, the α6000 features a pop-up flash and a standard hot shoe for additional flash accessories.


  • Low light situations not a problem
    Built-in pop-up flash in a compact camera body is perfect when an extra burst of light is needed to get the shot. Combine with high ISO sensitivity - from 100 to 16000 ISO - to enable shooting in just about any setting.


  • Better Images through BIONZ® X processing
    The new BIONZ® X image processor faithfully reproduces textures and details in real time via extra high-speed processing capabilities delivering true-to-life images - as seen by the naked eye. It enables greater natural detail, richer tonal gradations, lower noise and more realistic images whether you shoot stills or video.


  • New Eye AF control
    Thanks to extremely accurate eye detection, faces will be sharply focused - even when capturing a subject partially turned away from the camera and with a shallow depth of field – as the camera can prioritize a single pupil. A green frame appears over the prioritized eye when focus has been achieved for easy confirmation. Eye AF can be used when the function is assigned to a customizable button, allowing users to instantly activate it depending on the scene.
