Quicker autofocus than a DSLR
Shoot better with the alpha 6000: superb 24 MP 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 perfect moment, captured perfectly
Unlike many competitors, the alpha 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 11fps burst mode, but also highly accurate movement
tracking for both stills and video.

typical compact digital cameras. The result is an outstanding level of quality in every image. Sharper details, faster
