Is it a good choice to buy a Sony A6000 now?

Categories: photoGraphy

On its fifth commemoration, why have I chosen to compose a survey of a mirrorless camera which has been supplanted two times since its delivery? Because of my work with Shotkit, I approach basically any camera - why in the world did I decide to endure a month shooting with a section level camera and three obsolete Sony focal points?!

Ideally, this top to bottom survey of the world's smash hit mirrorless camera will make things a little more clear.

It'll likewise be a decent update that getting an extraordinary camera shouldn't for a second need to mean burning through bunches of cash on the extremely most recent model.


You can contrast the specs and more current models all you need, yet the main genuine way I planned to give you a fair suggestion was to shoot positively with this camera for a month… so that is the thing I did!

I've included segments underneath that contrast the a6000 and its two replacements, yet what was more vital to me was the exhibition of this camera all alone, for example not contrasted with more current cameras.

Assemble and Handling

1. The concern with most passage level mirrorless cameras at this cost is that form quality endures, yet fortunately this isn't true with this one.

2. The metal body feels strong, and offers an optimal load for a camera of this size. I especially like the elastic grasp, which projects barely to the point of permitting my enormous hand to get a firm, familiar hold, while as yet allowing my thumb to rest in a characteristic situation to change most settings one-gave.

3. Great ergonomics are an enormously misjudged highlight on reduced mirrorless cameras. It's just fine having a camera as slender as a deck of cards, yet except if you can hold it easily and securely while as yet having the option to work it one-gave, you should adhere to your iphone!

4. The dials on the a6000 remained firm and burdensome during the one month that I shot with it consistently - I at first thought they were a bit too solid, yet in the wake of becoming accustomed to it, I developed to like their strong feel.

5. The Sony a6000's buttons are completely committed to single capabilities, which makes activity exceptionally basic, with little need to begin diving into the fairly tangled menu.

6. You can change settings rapidly by utilizing what Sony calls the Quick Navi screen, available by means of the DISP button. Here you can browse all the principal shooting choices by squeezing the Fn button and exploring around the page utilizing the dial.

7. Investing some energy setting up the a6000 procures profits later on - I found that after I'd set up the Custom Menu with my 'on a regular basis' utilized capabilities, then, at that point, doled out the 2 committed custom buttons to my 'most utilized' capabilities, I didn't have to dig into the fundamental menu much by any means.

8. It's somewhat of a disgrace that Sony chose to pack such countless symbols around the buttons and dial on the back of the a6000. I tracked down activity of the camera far more straightforward than the wreck of symbols recommended!

Auto center

a. At the point when I shot with the Sony a6000 right off the bat, I was persuaded I wouldn't approve of it. My annoyance with section level cameras isn't having the option to choose the AF point 'straightforwardly', for example you can't press only one button to move the AF point.

b. This was my greatest abhorrence of Fuji's initial X100 cameras, until they resolved the issue with later models.

c. Having to initially press a button to draw in manual center point choice prior to having the option to move the center point might have been a huge issue for me on the a6000… had it not been for this camera's fantastic capacity to anticipate which center point you need to utilize, especially when there's a face included.

d. When a subject enters your scene, the camera utilizes some sort of voodoo wizardry to find its face right away, then lock on to it with mind blowing accuracy!

Picture Quality

a. This is where things begin to get truly intriguing. When I saw the pictures show up on the back LCD screen of my a6000, I should concede I wasn't anticipating a lot of in that frame of mind of heavenly picture quality.

b. As referenced previously, the LCD screen (and EVF), don't exactly offer a lot of in the method of high goal, so it's not difficult to expect the photographs you're taking won't look great when developed your PC screen, or moved to a shrewd gadget. (As it turns out, wifi and NFC move through Sony's cell phone application functioned admirably, and is a basic method for getting your photographs onto a telephone or tablet.)

c. Notwithstanding, when I at long last found time to transfer my pictures from the a6000 to my PC, I was unable to trust exactly the way that great they looked.

d. To shoot in JPEG to limit any time spent altering your photographs, I think you'll be extremely content with the pictures out of this camera.


a. This being a stills photography survey, I don't feel able to talk much about the Sony a6000 video execution.

b. Look at the video survey above for a superior thought of what this camera is equipped for in the right hands: What I will say is that the a6000 offers total manual command over openness settings during video recording, which makes certain to satisfy video shooters.

I likewise loved the capacity to shoot recordings in manual mode, yet having the option to choose Auto-ISO. This implies you can have imaginative command over gap and screen speed for the look and feel of the video, while allowing the camera to pick the proper ISO to keep up with the right splendor.

Similar as the auto center for photographs, the AF for video was also noteworthy. I didn't try much with the horde of AF modes accessible during video, yet I found the following quick and exact, and passed on me to simply focus on keeping the subject inside the casing.


At last, we come to the most grounded draw card - the Sony a6000 cost! One of the colossal advantages of purchasing a somewhat more seasoned camera is having the option to exploit hugely marked down costs.

At the point when the camera was delivered in 2014, it cost around $800, which I actually view as an extraordinary cost for a camera offer this much innovation and high picture quality in such a minimized body. Here in 2022, the cost of the Sony a6000 in addition to a unit focal point has dropped to around a portion of this, making it the best worth mirrorless camera!

My inclination subsequent to testing a couple of focal points is get it 'body just', saving 150 extra ish bucks over getting it with the 16-50mm power zoom.

While I found the influence zoom fun and cherished how minimized it made the general camera, there are greatly improved Sony a6000 focal points, and I'd like to put the cash saving towards one of these.

Sony a6000 versus 6300

2 years after the arrival of the a6000, the a6300 stirs things up around town, promoting a 'recently evolved picture sensor', better viewfinder, 4k video recording, more AF focuses and a more tough body. You can likewise utilize a more extensive scope of the Sony A-mount focal points on the a6300, with following and auto-center working around the recently evolved E-mount. So on paper, all looks very great… however recall that the a6300 is around two times the cost of the a6000.

For video, sure 4k is perfect to have the option to trim sometime later, and extra center focuses are useful while following a subject as far as possible across the edge. Notwithstanding, for stills photography, the vast majority concur that the a6300 isn't huge enough of a move up to warrant the cost increment over the a6000.
