AT A GLANCE

Sen­sor 24.3MP APS-C CMOS Sen­si­tiv­ity ISO 100-25,600 Con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing 11fps Video 1080p Full HD at 60fps Rear dis­play 3in, 921k-dot tiltable LCD Viewfinder 1.44-mil­lion-dot EVF Po­si­tioned as a more ad­vanced al­ter­na­tive to the A5000 and re­leased soon af­ter it in 2014, the A6000 ben­e­fits from a size­able in­crease in res­o­lu­tion (from 20MP to 24.3MP), an ex­panded fea­ture set and im­proved pro­cess­ing power. Un­like the A5000, it also gains a built-in elec­tronic viewfinder that sits above a sharper rear LCD dis­play. Un­like the purely con­trast- de­tect AF sys­tem of the A5000, the A6000 ben­e­fits from a hy­brid AF sys­tem that em­ploys 179 phase- de­tec­tion AF points along­side 25 con­trast- de­tect AF points for speed­ier fo­cus ac­qui­si­tion. Other high­lights in­clude a burst speed of 11fps, and 1080p video.
