Quicker autofocus than a DSLR Shoot better with the 6000: superb 24MP quality, quick autofocus - and very portable. Add an OLED Tru-Finder™, manual controls, and a range of lenses, for a superior alternative to bulky DSLRs.

The latest software is available on the support page. Unlike many competitors, the 6000's Fast Hybrid AF combines the strengths of both phase- and contrast-detection autofocus. With a class-leading 179 phase detection points (covering almost the entire image), and a high-speed contrast-detection function, the result is not only an impressive 11 fps burst mode, but also highly accurate movement tracking for both stills and video.

The perfect moment, captured perfectly 4D FOCUS enables superior autofocus performance in four dimensions: wide autofocus coverage (2D height and width), fast autofocus speed (3D depth) and enhanced predictive tracking (4D time).

Sony launches a new age of autofocus Capture the moment as never before. 6000's autofocus is faster than a DSLR so you never miss a shot. And with new colors to choose from, your photos aren't the only way to express yourself.

See more about 4D FOCUS The truth is simple: better images begin with bigger sensors, and the 6000 outclasses many cameras in its category. Its APS-C size sensor offers 1.6 times the area of 4/3 sensors, and 13 times that of the 1/2.3 sensors of typical compact digital cameras. The result is an outstanding level of quality in every image.

4D FOCUS Camera Settings Guide With three times the processing speed of earlier models, the new BIONZ X™ is able to accurately capture textures, reduce blurry details, and even suppress visual noise in specific areas to ensure sharp images. All these advantages apply equally to still images or video.

Your camera, your color The new 24.3MP APS HD sensor features optimized light gathering (through angled micro-lenses) and improved light sensitivity.

Quality starts with the sensor The BIONZ X™ image processor ensures images of the highest quality, and provides the muscle needed for ultra-fast AF.

Sharper details, faster AF The extremely high ISO range lets you shoot natural, nuanced photos in dim light or indoors without a flash.

Exmor™ 2 CMOS sensor An ultra-fast autofocus makes the 6000 one of the most versatile interchangeable-lens cameras available. At a mere 0.06 seconds, you're assured of getting the perfect shot in any situation, from family events to sports and nature.

Advanced processor Fast Hybrid AF The advanced Fast Hybrid AF enables more scenes to be focused via phase-detection only (reducing reliance on the contrast-detection mode), delivering fast AF available to capture your subject at the exact moment you intend.

Amazing shots in low light Ultra-precise 179 AF points for greater coverage. More autofocus points mean a better chance of capturing a perfectly sharp image, and with a class-leading 179 AF points, the 6000 provides extensive frame coverage and continuous, precise location of your subject no matter where in the frame they may be.

Introducing ultra-fast autofocus 11 fps continuous shooting with AF tracking Capturing an impressive 11 photos a second wouldn't mean much if they were blurry. That's where the 6000 excels

Never miss the perfect shot Freeze your subject at an amazing 11 fps for dramatic shots that capture the exact moment or expression you're looking for.

Wider frame coverage With Full 1080 HD at 60p or 24p, you can make the aesthetic choice to capture film-like motion in your videos.

Split-second and ultra-sharp Eye AF, Lock-on AF and more let you delegate that aspect to the camera, freeing you to concentrate on the content of the scene.

Stop the action, not the thrills Expert features, customizable buttons, and manual controls-in a compact, lightweight design.

Shoot cinematically Convenient companion The saying in photography is that the best camera is the one you have with you. With its compact size and light weight, the 6000 compares favorably to bulkier, heavier DSLRs. Yet with the creativity of interchangeable lenses, manual controls and more, you sacrifice nothing.

AF features for any scene The OLED Tru-Finder™ EVF is another of the 6000's expert-level tools, with rich real-time data for planning and previewing shots. Exposure Control compensates for overly bright/dim scenes, Focus Zoom accurately enlarges a chosen detail, and Display Mode reveals histograms and more.
