Sony continues to embrace the feature-adding firmware trend by adding high bitrate video recording to its a6000 mirrorless camera. Firmware v2.0 adds the ability to record in the XAVC S format to the 16-month-old camera, offering 50Mbps shooting at 24, 30, or 60p (and PAL equivalents). Aside from the updated firmware, a Class 10 SDXC card is the only other thing you'll need to get started.

As always, we're impressed to see a manufacturer adding features to a camera that's already so far into its lifespan - especially for a camera that received our Gold Award in its original state, so was already considered excellent. The update also promises to improve the camera's startup times.
