About the Sony A6000

Sony shook up the market for DSLR’s in early 2014 with the launch of the Alpha α6000 Mirrorless Camera. With approximately half the size and weight of a typical DSLR with an APS-C image sensor, the α6000 is a super compact option for water and adventure sports photographers who want to minimize the bulk of their kit without sacrificing too much in performance.

Built around a 24 megapixel APS-C CMOS digital sensor and powered by a BIONZ X image processor – capable of producing photos at a burst rate of 11 frames per second (fps). Boasting one of the world’s fastest autofocus systems, the tracking fast-moving subjects for sports and surf photography is made easier with the 179-point phase detection autofocus sensors.

Videographers are able to shoot at full HD 1080p quality video at up to 60 frames per second (fps) with the Alpha α6000. The 179-point autofocus system works even in video mode, enabling the tracking of moving subjects with live video.

With an ISO range of 100-25,600, the Sony Alpha α6000 offers water shooters the ability to capture surf and underwater images in a wide range of lighting conditions – as well as night photography. Weighing in at an ultralight weight .76 pounds, and half the size of a traditional DSLR, the alloy body of the Alpha α6000 is light enough for a long swim, but strong and sturdy for work in the field. With a maximum shutter speed of 1/4000th of a second, the Alpha α6000 can freeze the fastest action in sports photography. Selling for less than $500, the Alpha α6000 is an extremely affordable alternative choice for water and action sports photographers looking to get started with shooting subjects from water to land.
