What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera
  • Another thing I really like about this camera is the size and how solid it feels.
  • I primarily bought the a6000 for it's very small size and great image quality for quick short trips.
  • The weight reduction and compactness weren't really a factor to me, but a nice bonus nonetheless.
  • The power zoom that comes in the kit is by no means a bad option - takes adequate photos, and preserves the selling point of the tiny size of the camera
  • loving the small camera size and all the controls they give you, that being said I have big hands and some buttons are crammed together.

  • Designed well, compact, with today's best tech.
  • This camera takes great photos and is really compact.
  • I really love the compact, yet well-made camera body!

What customers say about "Imaging"
Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera
  • With the proper settings of shutter speed, ISO, and aperture it gives great pictures
  • High ISO performance rivals full frame cameras.
  • It does an excellent job of evaluating the scene and automatically selecting the right mix of aperture, shutter speed and ISO.
  • There's also a full-time manual zoom override if you want.
  • The camera has an amazing ability to identify faces and recognize when a person smiles.

  • For casual shooters, the jpegs will be very good. The great AF system will insure a high number of keeper pics.
  • For more serious shooters, use RAW. The files have very good dynamic range. The noise quality is very good for APS-C files. I suspect I can print 8x10's from ISO 6400 and 12,800 in most cases. And I can get web quality images even at ISO 25,600.
  • Very good image quality and flexibility of using the LCD makes it great for landscapes.
  • Fast AF and 8/11 fps is very good for sports/wildlife, but not at extreme distances due to lack of telephoto lenses.
  • Poor jpeg compression. I'm not sure if it's the noise reduction (which I reduced to low), the default sharpening, or the jpeg compression scheme, but even at moderate level ISO, my jpegs were looking pretty ugly when examined closely.
  • Inconsistent indoor artificial light AWB. Often in artificial light, my portraits take on very unnatural yellow colors. Be ready to fix white balance in post processing.

What customers say about "Display"
Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera
  • Viewfinder resolution is acceptable.
  • Despite low resolution, the View finder is helpful esp in mid day sun.
  • All controls are easily within reach of the thumb, that is a very good ergonomics. In addition, intuitive menus are great for navigating and are well displayed on the LCD screen.
  • There are two things about the camera that bug me a bit. The biggest one is that the display screen scratches very easily (like a credit card). As soon as you buy this camera invest in a screen protector because the screen is easily scratched/scuffed.
  • The one thing i did not like about it is the preview on the display screen. You might think the camera is not clear because of small noises. But when you check your album you'll be impress how clear and focus it actually is.

  • The screen is a decent size but could be bigger.
  • The tilt screen is totally fine.
  • The rear screen is nearly invisible during sunlight so make sure you get a sunshade adapter.
  • Screen tilts up but cannot flip out.

What customers say about "Features"
Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera
  • Even in handheld lowlight panorama shot jpegs are quite stunning.
  • Additionally, it has modes for movies, panoramas, and specific scene scenarios.
  • Don't be afraid of the manual settings mode. It will certainly broaden your horizons as far as what more you can do in photography.
  • With the proper settings of shutter speed, ISO, and aperture it gives great pictures.
  • The focus and clarity is amazing, and the shutter speed is crazy fast.
  • I was taking a picture of the ocean but the waves were moving too quickly and it was almost impossible to get the panorama shot no matter how many times I tried!
Sony Alpha a6300 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Lens – Black
  • The camera is amazing with regards to videography. 24, 30, 60, 120 FPS makes it a versatile little friend on-the-go.
  • Although not the most popular you can still get wide(sort of) range of lenses
  • EVF very very nice, and shoot high speed is good now, no more black out, good like Nikon & Canon 7DmII
  • Manual Focus Lens become Auto Focus with Techart Pro Adapter
  • No stabilization. You pretty much have to use a gimbal to get good, stable shots for cinematography or film in 120fps and slow it down.
  • RAW AND JPG files are not supported in Adobe Lightroom?? I couldn't get anything to import- can someone explain this?

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera
  • I love being out shooting, then being able to transfer any picture I want in full resolution straight to my Android phone via NFC.
  • The Sony app is pretty cool along with the nfc for transferring images to your phone/tablet.
  • The wifi and NFC are nice for quickly uploading pictures to a phone or tablet, I use a Nexus 10 and have had no problems with the Sony app for sharing pictures and remotely controlling the camera.
  • My wife loves the NFC technology that allows you to just hold the camera up to your phone and automatically transfer whatever picture you're looking at on the camera to the phone.
  • The SD card slot is kind of crammed next to the battery, making it rather hard to get the card out.
Sony Alpha a6300 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 16-50mm Lens – Black
  • Wifi is well implemented, including the ability to add apps to the camera functions.
  • The built-in wifi is really great, especially with community event season approaching!
  • Wifi feature is awesome- I send to my phone and share with friends immediately!
  • HDMI allows external recording to various devices, including TV and computers. AVCHD as found in Panasonic cameras is very clean although does not support 4K resolution yet.
  • The WiFi feature simply sucks. For some reason, it will transfer photos from itself to a smartphone in short order, but transferring to a computer via WiFi is so slow as to be useless.
