Sony Alpha A6000
A slew of new cameras has been introduced over the past few days, but none are quite as impressive as Sony’s Alpha A6000 ($650). Also available with a 16-50mm power-zoom kit lens for $800, this mirrorless shooter is an impressive followup to the NEX-6. With a new sensor and faster autofocus—plus a lower price—there’s a lot to like.
Inside the camera, there’s a 24.3-megapixel CMOS APS-C sensor. Paired with the BIONZ X processor, you’re looking at an autofocus lag time of 0.06 seconds. That’s especially notable coming from a mirrorless camera — they’re often dinged for their slow focus rates. It can also shoot at a continuous 11fps rate with tracking autofocus. As for the other features, Sony has squeezed in an OLED viewfinder, Wi-Fi, 1080/60p video capture, and some apps, just to name a few.
