Sony Alpha a6000 Interchangeable Lens Camera

Expert Review

This mirrorless interchangeable lens camera offers very fast continuous shooting the money, and several design improvements on its predecessor (the Sony NEX-6). The Sony Alpha a6000 uses a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor and Sony’s latest Bionz X image processor, resulting in a camera that delivers excellent photo quality in a variety of conditions. However, it’s not the best amongst its competitors when it comes to low light performance; it is worth mentioning that the majority of these issues are primarily seem when shooting in JPEG, as Raw images are more workable. Video quality is also very good, with the built-in microphone offering solid audio quality, an important detail when the Alpha a6000 does not offer a mic jack, headphone jack, or any audio level control.

Perhaps the most stand out performance feature of this camera is its continuous shooting capabilities; this camera can shoot continuously at 11 frames per second with both autofocus and auto exposure, and continue at this pace for a considerable time. This is outstanding in this price range. The camera is comfortable to use, with controls placed well and a large grip. A pop-up flash and hot shoe are included, as is an electronic viewfinder, articulating LCD screen, as well as WiFi/ NFC capabilities also included.

Overall, the Sony Alpha a6000 is a lightweight and relatively compact camera that is capable of producing excellent images under a variety of conditions, making it a good choice for more advanced photographers who want fast continuous shooting without needing a DSLR.Rating: 5/5
