Sony a6000 User Reviews

24 megapixels | 3 screen | APS-C sensor

I bought my Sony Alpha A6000 a few weeks ago from a wonderful member here on DPR. Prior to this, I have owned a slew of Point and Shoots, as well as DSLR cameras; this would be my first mirrorless. I do not have any E Mount lenses; rather, this review is more about the ergonomics, functionality, and ease of use with third-party lenses (and adapters). Ergonomics and body: The A6000 is a small camera. Meaning, that for a interchangeable lens model, this camera has a really small footprint, and ...

I´m a happy user of Nex system with a NEX-3, a Nex-5R and two Nex-7.   Has not the video issue (sensor heating) of the Nex-7. Makes wonderful videos. But with this new camera I have seen very interesting "improvements". 1. The camera has plastic casing. Very far from the Nex-7 feeling. 2. The body is bigger than the Nex-7. Not too much but bigger! 3. The WORST: MF-ASSIST is available only when E-mount lens is attached. So, you can not focus properly with manual lenses. For me the focus assist ...

Been trying to write a review of this camera for 6 months. Of course in that time the A6300 has come out, but the A6000 is still relevant so here goes. More detailed thoughts here http://photographyformortals.blogspot.co.uk/2015/12/the-sony-a6000-review.html Pros For the price still about the best interchangeable mirrorless camera you can buy Light and easy to carry around. The kit lens makes it a small very portable system, which will make you want to leave your SLR behind With a fast lens ...

This camera caught my eye at a big box retailer on clearance for $549 with 16-50mm zoom lens so I said hey why not and put down the money. I took it home and started playing with this little guy thinking did I waste my money or did I find a diamond on the floor of a huge retailer. I have to preface this with the knowledge that I have several A-mount cameras and a few A-Mount lenses and loved them but they were getting a little long in the tooth. Wow, I am glad I bought it. The image quality ...

I have this camera since xmas 2015 and love it except the kit lenses aren't that great.  They are so so but had to start somewhere.  The camera does not focus well.  Colors produced by this camera is unbelievable.  Panorama sometimes works sometimes not, very frustrating at time. The 55-210m lens is good and the burst mode is great.  The M mode is a plus, set it, and recall especially for HDR shots.

I've only had this little guy for about a week but I love it!  I was looking for a good 'walking around' camera that weighed less that my DSLR but I wanted quality and interchangeable lenses.  As I don't do much video, the A6000 rather than the A6300 seemed like a good choice.  I got it with the Zeis 16-70 F4 (24 to 105 F6 equivalent) and it seems to be just perfect.  It handles well (although I wish they'd switched positions on the two main dials), focusing is easy, the electronic ...

I bought this camera based on reviews, I admit that it's blazing fast and image quality is very good, however month after month I was missing more and more from it until finally I decided it's not a camera for me. What I missed? - direct access to various settings - order in menus - proper jpegs out of camera (I HAD to rework each and every raw to my taste) - binding auto ISO with shutter speed The thing is, every now and then I had to dive into menus to change simplest settings. I found a ...

Balancing image quality, functionality, size, and price I really do think this is the best. I've tried quite a few cameras and am still so happy with this camera half-a-year on. When I shot with DSLRs, I would rarely take them with me and take my RX100 II instead. Now, I rarely take out the RX100 II and don't mind taking the A6000 around. I have a Nikon D600 as well and use that when I shoot events in low-light with an 80-200 f/2.8 but for everything else the A6000 is great. To address the ...
