A 24-megapixel camera from Sony with a 2.9-inch LCD, 3x optical zoom, and manual controls.
The Alpha 6000 is a 24-megapixel camera with a kit lens that has a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24mm-75mm. It has a 2.9-inch LCD (921,600 pixels) that swivels. It also includes an electronic viewfinder, which is helpful when composing in bright light.
Because it accepts interchangeable lenses but does not have a mirror and through-the-lens viewfinder, we consider this model a mirrorless SLR-like camera.
The camera's kit lens has a maximum aperture of f/3.5. The camera's shutter speed range is 30 seconds to 1/4000 of a second.
The Alpha 6000 stores photos and video on SD/SDHC/SDXC/MemoryStick Duo memory cards but has no on-board storage. It captures images as JPEG or RAW files at a top resolution of 6000 x 4000 and full HD-resolution video as MP4 files at a top resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a frame rate up to 60p and 60i fps.
The image stabilization system for this camera is optical.
The Alpha 6000 measures 5.1 inches wide by 2.7 inches high by 1.9 inches deep, and weighs 12 ounces (with battery, memory card, and strap).
