One fine shot, one captivating story
  • The 24.3MP Exmor R APS-C HD CMOS sensor brings out the beauty in even the simplest things. It delivers incredible detail and low noise, so you can capture not only the fine texture of a butterfly's wings as it rests gracefully on a nearby shrub but also the veined surface of the leaf it's sitting on.
  • The APS-C sensor size, the same sensor format found in Sony's full-sized Alpha DSLR camera lines, combines high resolution and sensitivity in a body half the size and weight of standard DSLRs. Now stopping to rest during a hike opens up a world of possibility, with a camera that gives you the flexibility to endow simple moments with your own artistic flair.
  • Bionz X processor works seamlessly with the sensor to produce crisp still images with area-specific noise reduction, true colour rendering, and detail reproduction. Infuse your butterfly photo with a sense of vibrant realism, and capture what your eye perceives, highlighting the subtle beauty of the delicate, brightly patterned scales.
  • Don't let the fading light deter you from appreciating what nature has to offer. High-sensitivity ISO 100-25600 limits the noise in the picture for superb clarity in dim situations. Bring to light the lush variety of flora and fauna often hidden in the forest undergrowth, and when you need it, pop up the built-in flash to give your subject the "sharp" attention it deserves.
  • The included 16-50mm E-mount retractable Power Zoom lens is small and compact, barely protruding from the front of your camera so you can still slide your a6000 in your jacket pocket with the lens attached. It features ED and aspherical elements for reliably sharp and detailed images well suited to everyday shooting.
  • It also includes a 55-210mm E-mount telephoto zoom lens. Ideal for capturing wildlife or sports, this lens is compact and lightweight so you can easily take it with you on globe-trotting adventures or just out to your child's soccer game. It features ED and aspherical elements for reliably sharp and detailed images well suited to everyday shooting.
Capture the energy behind your moving shots
  • The rapid pitter-patter and rustle in the underbrush signal the swift approach of a tree squirrel, or two. Whip out your camera, and lock on to that scurrying animal with lock-on autofocus. Capture the perfect leap thanks to rapid 11fps (frames per second) continuous shooting with AF (auto focus) tracking.
  • Enjoy a much wider coverage area with 179-point phase-detection autofocus and 25-point contrast-detection autofocus. Phase detection sensors help focus on the active squirrel moving across the frame, as well as his off-centre companion in hot pursuit.
  • Capture the sights and sounds of a light-flowing waterfall and meandering stream against a scenic alpine backdrop. Record Full HD videos in slower 24p frames per second for a traditional, cinematic effect, or catch your buddy's impressive back flip off a rocky boulder in fast 60i.
  • AVCHD codec lets you record beautiful Blu-ray picture quality, while the computer-friendly MP4 codec makes it easy to compress your files and upload to the web. This way you can fully appreciate your recording finesse displayed in Blu-ray quality on a monitor or big-screen TV, or post directly on Facebook for instant updates to your social network.
Easy to handle
  • Dare to stand on the cliff's edge and photograph the plunging depths below with a tiltable 3-inch 921K-dot LCD screen. It flips up about 90 degrees and down 45 degrees so you can indulge in perfectly framed low-angle shots, and change your view on a whim.
  • View your landscape shot in rich detail with the high-contrast Tru-Finder OLED electronic viewfinder. Preview your recordings, including the effects of camera settings, so you can tweak exposure, colour, and focus before taking the picture.
  • You don't need any more weight when you're already lugging around a 70-litre backpack. The a6000 sports a small, lightweight design while offering immediate access to functions you need to shoot like a pro, including 7 customizable buttons. Quickly choose shooting modes and camera settings with a rear-mounted control and 2 top dials.
  • When you're not trucking up and down mountains, you'll have no trouble carrying this compact camera around. This camera bundle comes with a soft carrying case with enough room for the body and the lenses. It also includes a lens cleaning cloth and an LCD screen protector to help keep your gear in pristine condition.
Share your highlights
  • Prove you really did tackle that multi-day hike. With Sony's PlayMemories Camera Apps, you can find apps that'll let you control and view your camera from a WiFi-enabled smartphone, as well as share and save photos. Post those thrilling shots directly on Facebook, given you can find a WiFi connection in the wild.
  • Wireless file transfers and one-touch pairing with a compatible mobile device are easy with WiFi and NFC (near field communication) connectivity. The PlayMemories Mobile app lets you touch your camera to an Android smartphone or tablet, and create an instant connection through NFC for sharing, remote control, and basic editing.
  • Make the most of fleeting moments, and take several shots of that scurrying animal or the sun breaking through fast-moving clouds. Sony's lithium-ion rechargeable NP-FW50 battery lasts up to 360 stills on a single charge, while the innovative InfoLITHIUM battery system lets you see the power percentage remaining so you can shoot with confidence.

    from BC on February 3, 2017

    Excellent quality from this camera, along with many features. I would have given it 5 stars if it offered the option to date stamp the photographs. I realize professionals don't want this feature, but I would like to at least have had the option.
