Then contrast-detection AF with wide AF coverage fine-tunes the focusing in the blink of an eye

    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

I want to be blunt about a couple of things to start. Firstly, I am a novice photographer. Most of my understanding of photography came from researching the camera I wanted to buy. Secondly, this is my first camera of any competitive caliber. That said, this is the camera I chose after much research. It has very much lived up to and surpassed my expectations in most ways. That said (part II), it is not perfect and the rating given is for its placement in the camera hierarchy. I think, if someone is looking for an all around, best bang for the buck camera for daily use, family portraits/life moments, compact carry, and even artistic photography within an affordable price range, the a6000 is probably what they are looking for. I've read criticisms of the low light performance, and it can be hard to tweak.... but I have gotten some decent images outside after midnight. The clarity is impressive, in general. The speed lives up to the hype. This said, there are some justifiable criticisms. It can be stubborn in the dark when it can't focus on what you are aiming at - in other words, it relies on its own computer focusing instead of trusting the user. Sometimes it is right, sometimes you just wish it would do as it is told, if only so you can get an idea of how to adjust the settings. There is no touch screen or mic jack. The fastest shutter speed is a "mere" 1/4000, which is fine for what it is, but there is a bit of a contrast with faster cameras. I'm sure they could have hit 1/16000 with its electronic nature without much of a price increase. I suspect Sony didn't want to make its higher end cameras completely irrelevant.

The camera body is excellent, but the lens selection is a BIG disappointment. In particular the lack of fast zooms. Anyone moving from the world of Canon and Nikon DSLR's is used to be able to get quality f/2.8 zooms, and there's one crazy fast f/1.8 Sigma zoom available. But in the e-mount world, the quality zooms only go to f/4. Very dissapointing.

Comments about Sony Alpha A6000 24.3 Megapixel Black Mirrorless Digital Camera Body:

This is a powerful, lightweight and versatile camera. I would recommend buying a book to help with the very complex menus that this camera uses. Very high quality pictures. The only downside is that battery life is poor, and I'd recommend an additional battery and external charger.

Great camera, lousy battery life

By 

from Springfield, VA 22153, USA

Comments about Sony Alpha A6000 24.3 Megapixel Black Mirrorless Digital Camera Body:

Have used it for six months, including trip. Pictures are great specially with the Zeiss 32/1.8 touit lens, not so much with the Sony E 55-210. Battery life is bad, battery goes down even with the camera off, like from 100% to 81% in two days.

Comments about Sony Alpha A6000 24.3 Megapixel Black Mirrorless Digital Camera Body:

I received this camera from Sony support in exchange for a non repairable camera. At the time all they had was white. I would never buy a white camera myself, but that doesn't affect picture quality which is excellent. I am amazed by how good the jpegs right out of the camera really are - properly exposed and with good white balance. RAW files also lend themselves to post processing if desired. I wish there were more affordable prime lenses, especially in the telephoto range. Sony has pretty much switched their lens production over to the larger full-frame cameras, which I don't want or need.

LOVE IT!

Comments about Sony Alpha A6000 24.3 Megapixel Black Mirrorless Digital Camera Body:

I have had this camera since October 2014 and have taken it on trips to Dubai, Philippines, France, Los Angeles, Washington DC. Takes amazing photos, very light, easy to use. I even dropped it once on a concrete floor and it works just as well as before the drop (it got a few scratches)! The price is amazing for what you get. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I will definitely be getting the next version when it comes out if I can save up for it. The only regret - not buying it sooner than I did!

Focus is POOR

By

Comments about Sony Alpha A6000 24.3 Megapixel Black Mirrorless Digital Camera Body:

We are a two A6000 family and are replacing both as we "speak". I am unable to achieve sharp focus on either body with either lens - a SONY 18-200 and a similar Tamron. Smaller than F/8 all is sharp - but so is a $29 drugstore camera. More than f/8, I get sharp focus only with DMF - if I use DMF, focus is fine - I touch up the autofocus by a turn of the DMF ring, sharp focus. I've tried with a tripod and remote shutter, so it isn't my shake - the autofocus is fast but poor. Calls to Sony and a software upgrade improved the camera to poor - but, for now, it is an f/8 lens with medium quality results.

A6000 Lens-to-photograph Quality Challenges DSLRs

By 

from Los Angeles, CA 90045, USA

Comments about Sony Alpha A6000 24.3 Megapixel Black Mirrorless Digital Camera Body:

This camera has replaced my big, bulky DSLRs. The reason we went to DSLR cameras was the photo quality from lens, to sensor, to printed or displated photographs. The Sony A6000 camera gives us the lens-to-photograph quality of the best DSLRs.

Made a believer out of me!

Comments about Sony Alpha A6000 24.3 Megapixel Black Mirrorless Digital Camera Body:

We needed an upgrade from a decent but slow camera. After research, I narrowed down to a Sony a6000. It's like a dream come true. All the features of the camera can make even a beginner seem like a professional. The auto focusing, tracking, 11 fps, and the list goes on. Best price for a camera that compares with high end professional cameras.

You can't beat this camera for features at this price. DSLR's at three times the cost can't beat it!!
