Today, Sony is announcing their brand new A6000 mirrorless Alpha camera at CP+–which is the successor to the NEX 6. The camera’s design and style pay homage to the NEX 7 while still retaining a bit of what the NEX 6 had to offer. For example, there are more dials than on the lower end cameras for sure.
At its heart, the A6000 houses a 24.3MP APS-C sensor. This isn’t the same that was in the NEX 7, instead it’s a brand new one. It also shoots 1080/60p and 24p video, takes SD cards, has a 1,400k dot EVF, a 3 inch 921,600 dot LCD screen, 1/4000 sec. maximum shutter speed, can shoot up to 11fps, has flash sync to 1/160 sec., ISO range from 100-25,600 and more.
But by far, one of the things that’s blowing our minds about this camera is the revamped autofocus. There are 179 phase detection points on the sensor and 25 contrast points. Plus there’s NFC and WiFi.
All this can be yours for $799 when it launches in mid-April.
