Sony A6100 | BEST VALUE APS-C Camera in 2020


what’s up guys – gay here and welcome to another tech gear talk today we’re gonna check out the sony a6000 with the a 6400 being so popular then the release of the a 6600 as the flagship wasn’t really sure that there was room for another model in this line so let’s take a look and see if the feature set at this price point wouldn’t make sense for you the a 6100 looks pretty much exactly like the a 6400 at first glance but currently it’s priced at right under 600 bucks which is $300 less I’ve been using the a sixty one sixty four and sixty six hundred for the past few months so I’ll cover what I liked and what I didn’t like about the a sixty one hundred and I also put it in context I’m gonna very quickly go over some overall key features in case you’re just starting your research and feel free to skip around if there’s a particular section that you’re interested in by using the timestamps in the description the a 6100 has a 24 megapixel aps-c CMOS sensor and the BIONZ X image processor which helps with operating speed performance and overall image quality it uses a hybrid

autofocus system with 425 phase and contrast detection points with real-time autofocus for Stills and impressive subject tracking it has a 3-inch 921,000 dot flip LCD screen and it can internally record at up to 4k 34 200 and externally at 4 to 2 there’s also an entry-level 1.4 4 million dot OLED electronic viewfinder it can shoot continuously at up to 11 frames per second and has an expandable ISO of up to 50 1200 and finally we have a built in flash and an external mic input for better audio alright now that we’re done with the specs let’s dive in deeper and talk about how these features will actually impact your real-life use I want to start out by talking about the sensor and the processor and as a quick reminder if you want to just go right ahead and skip to like the autofocus section or image quality or you want to hear the audio test there are links in the description the a 6100 is the official replacement for the older a 6000 and it uses the same 24 megapixel aps-c sensor and with a price point of 600 bucks put it in direct competition with something like the

Canon m50 so back to the a 6100 even though it at first glance it looks like the a6000 or even the a 6400 there are a number of meaningful differences even though we are seeing an older sensor we will notice improved image quality and low-light performance based on the newer and more powerful processor this is an excellent option if you’re shooting portraits or landscape if you pair with a small lens it’s a really good option for street photography or even if you’re looking for a great travel camera to take with you and honestly at this price point it might be the best sports camera that you can get because of the super impressive autofocus feature and a relatively fast burst shooting that I’ll discuss later on in the video this stills image quality at least as far as JPEGs isn’t noticeably better than what I got with the a6000 overall just like with the a 6400 I think it’s a very pleasing image and I like the color processing and the improved low-light performance the sony color is something that some people like some people don’t like it always comes up in the

comments section so I’m just bringing it up it seems to have a little bit of a greenish tint to it and I normally just adjust it and post if I feel like that’s needed and again there’s no question that there’s an improvement over what I was getting from the a6000 now as I mentioned earlier even though the sensor is the same as what we saw in the a6000 the newer and more powerful processor gives the camera some distinct advantages sony didn’t use an identical chip to the very professional and much much much more expensive a nine but it did use a derivation of that chip in addition to the outstanding autofocus which i’ll discuss later on in that section the a 6100 is more responsive and less laggy than the a6000 so when you’re actually using it basic operations like going from shooting to previewing images and video and just going in and out of menu or selecting different features and settings are going to feel faster something else that I was super impressed with at this price point is that there is no 30 minute record limit and this is the same as what we see on

the a 64 in the a 6600 but I wasn’t sure if Sony was going to use that feature to further separate the cameras and not having this limit allows for continuous shooting of longer clips and it removes the hassle of having to keep track of your current clip and make sure that you’re not reaching the 30 minute mark and having your camera turn off automatically and stop recording so if you’re using this for YouTube or you want to shoot longer interviews or you’re recording events that’s a feature that you’re really going to like so for example one of my cousins has her own channel and she’s an artist so she may be drawing or painting for two hours and she just picked up one of these and can now record continuously for two hours and then either speed things up and a time lapse or just pick the segments that she likes and I’ll link to her channel in the description if you want to go check it out and I just brought up video and Sonia is definitely pushing this camera for entry-level creators and it performed really well for me both in 1080p and in 4k

in terms of image quality I’m going to talk about this more when we get to the image quality section but the a 6100 is gonna give you beautiful crisp 4k video with improved color science over what we saw from older models I’m working on to follow up tutorials that have to do with my video settings for the a 6100 and low-light shooting and just like with my a7 3 and a 6400 once you take a few minutes and set up all the buttons to do exactly what you want them to do you’re good to go moving forward and if you have anything specific that you want me to cover in those follow-up tutorials just let me know in the comment section below now back to the sensor for photography I can shoot at up to 11 frames per second in bursts or continuous shooting mode and so that means that I can just hold down the button and the camera will just keep firing I love this part and this is a great feature if you want to photograph your kids running around if you’re at sporting events if you want to capture your pets while they’re running or anytime you’re shooting any fast-moving subjects I have a dedicated auto focus section coming up but I’m just gonna tell you that the auto focus while continuous shooting was

amazingly fast and accurate and it’s probably the best auto focus that I’ve seen for the price all right let’s move on and I say this a lot but one of the most important things for me with any tool that I use is ergonomic and that’s in terms of both handling and the user interface and it’s something that I think is overlooked by a lot of people when they shop for a camera because they tend to focus on the specs of the camera but not the actual user experience and the a 6,100 is definitely on the smaller size when it comes to Sony mirrorless cameras and that’s of course by design now as technology advances manufacturers are able to make certain components smaller I always think it’s important to strike a balance between performance economics and portability now the grip while smaller than what we see on the a 6,600 is pretty much identical to what we see on the a 6,400 and it’s still comfortable to hold it’s much more comfortable than the m50 or the Fuji XT 30 so from my hand I can

get all three fingers on the right side when my index finger is on the shutter and my pinky doesn’t go under the camera and it’s kind of funny that’s not something that would bother me but I get a ton of questions about this in the comments section so I always like to mention it the body has a polycarbonate chassis and the buttons and dials are not weather sealed so please don’t use it in situations where it might get super dusty or wet now like the a 6400 it uses the N P FW 50 battery but it’s rated for 420 shots which is actually a few more than what we get I need a 6400 I always get more shots than the super ratings and I think for an entry-level camera that’s a pretty good number of shots as usual sony does not include a charger which always annoys me especially when the battery ratings are the lower end and I’m likely to purchase extra batteries now if you plan on getting extra batteries you’ll need to buy a charger or you’ll have to remove the one that’s in camera in order to charge the other one what’s nice is that you can still use the a 6100 while it’s being charged and Sony does include a plug for the microUSB cable Sony please stop using microUSB cables and start using USB see this camera was released in August of 2019 I think and it’s time now when we coupled the ability

of using this camera while it’s plugged in with the fact that there is no recording time limit this makes this camera an awesome option for long video sessions and for live-streaming as far as buttons and dials I’m happy with what we get with the a 6100 for the price we’ve got two functional dials one for aperture and one for shutter speed and we still have c1 and c2 buttons with you can customize it’s a very similar layout to what we see with the a 6400 with one exception which I’ll discuss into comparison I think that if you’re buying a camera and you’re just using it with the default factory settings you’re really missing out part of what you get when you’re buying a nice camera is the ability to customize it to work better for exactly how you shoot and I think the a 6100 provides a really good balance of customization without going overboard to where would get overwhelming and I have a follow-up video where I’ll show you exactly how I set up the a 6100 I recommend that you check it out when it’s published and even if you don’t end up doing things exactly the way that I do it will give you some great ideas and you can just pick the

ones that work best for how you shoot moving on on the left side we have this little barn door with a micro USB port an HDMI out and a 3.5 millimeter input jack just like with my a 6400 I like the design of this door a lot better than the little flippy rubbery things that I have on my a 73 which always get in the way once I have them open now moving on to the bottom of the camera we’ll see that we have the battery compartment and the SD card slot and I like the placement of this compartment because the quarter-twenty is offset to the left of the camera so you can switch out batteries and remove the SD card without having to take the camera off of a tripod or to remove the quick-release plate now the viewfinder is a lower-end model than what we saw on the a 64 and a 6600 we got a 1.4 for OLED EDF instead of a 2.3 nine million dot that we get on the higher-end models so far I’ve given the a 6100 really high marks as far as ergonomics just like the higher-end models but unfortunately it’s gonna receive some of the same criticisms namely the menu and the settings and I’m more familiar with the system because of my age 73 and the a 6400 before a beginner which is who this camera has really targeted at the menu system could easily become

overwhelming and I would stress it here more so than with something like the a 6600 because I expect a more experienced user to purchase the flagship model now the menu system is not the end of the world like some people treat it but it’s just not a strength for Sony I said it in my other videos but it’s not the menu design that I find problematic it’s actually really easy to use it’s split into categories that make sense you can clearly see what page you’re on and you can navigate to the top level and then move between categories without having to scroll through every single page so Sony did a good job with that part the issue is that it seems disorganized which could definitely be confusing for beginners the features and settings just aren’t where I would expect them to be and they’re not sorted in an order that really makes sense to me based on importance I want to reiterate that from an actual usability standpoint it’s easy to navigate a move around if you know exactly what you’re looking for but expect to do some searching in the beginning and the a 6100 does offer a customized function menu which is similar to nikons I menu and Fugees quick menu you can select up to twelve settings and you can bring them on you up by clicking the function button on the back now I’ll post a few tutorials that will show you how I customize the settings and

the good thing is that once you set the camera up for just how you want it to work you pretty much never interact with the main menu next I want to talk about resolution frame rates and image quality so for stills the a 6100 has a maximum resolution of 6,000 by 4,000 which is absolutely plenty for what most people using this type of camera would ever need unless you’re really planning on printing something huge it can of course shoot both JPEG and RAW so you can decide just how much information you want to capture depending on what you plan on doing with the images and post-production and I normally have it set to shoot both JPEG and RAW so that way I have the JPEGs for a quick post like if I want to put it on social media and then I have the raw image if I want to do some more advanced editing the image quality for stills is fantastic for a $600 camera and I found that my images were sharp with pretty good dynamic range and very very good low-light performance JPEG noise reduction is outstanding for a camera under six hundred bucks and the Sony colors are improving with every iteration specifically for skin tones it still has a little of that Sony look which I happen to like but if you’re coming from Canon or Fuji it’s gonna look slightly cool to you and you

might find that the blues or greens are a little boosted now I always mention that there is definitely an element of personal preference there and I’m just sharing my impressions and of course any of this can be easily adjusted in post for video if you’re shooting an NTSC the a 6100 can record 4k at 24 and 30 frames per second and then Full HD or 1080p at 24 thirty sixty and a hundred and twenty frames per second in PAL you can shoot 4k at 25 and Full HD at 25 fifty and a hundred frames per second now we can record internally at up to 4k 34 208 bit and then externally 4k 34 – two 8-bit using the clean HDMI out and both at a hundred megabits per second now I don’t expect a lot of users of this entry-level model to record externally but it is a super powerful option at this price point now just like with the higher-end models if you’re shooting at 4k 24 then the footage is over sampled from 6k which like I always say renders beautiful details the 4k footage from this camera is really nice and crisp and we’re using the full width of the sensor here and there’s no pixel binning now if you’re shooting at 4k 30 then there is a 1.

2 X crop now depending on how much of a pixel paper you’re gonna be

you might notice a very slight difference in quality between the 4k 24 and the 4k 30 but honestly the 4k coming out of this camera is so good that I never really think about that now going to 1080p as I mentioned we have even more options we can shoot at 24 30 60 and 120 frames per second now you’ll see that 30 and 60 offer two different bit rates so always choose the higher one in order to get the best quality now the quality of the Full HD or 1080p naturally is not as good as the 4k but if you want the best 1080p that you can get out of this camera you can still shoot in 4k and then downscale it later on in post-production and you’ll definitely see sharper footage and more detail if you choose to go in that route but of course you’ll have to deal with larger files and a need for additional processing power now let’s get to 120 frames per second which is one of my favorite things about using Sony cameras and if you watched any of my reviews you probably know that I love slow motion and as expected I love the slow motion footage that I’m getting at 120 frames per second

with a hundred megabits per second and the autofocus works really well and I’m really happy with the overall quality of the footage I’ll talk more about this in the autofocus section next but I do want to mention that subject tracking and face detection does not work when you’re using 120 frames per second now there’s also a video option up on the mode aisle that’s called snq which if you’re not familiar with it lets you select a frame rate ranging from somewhere between one frame per second all the way to 120 frames per second and what the camera will do is it will take that and then either speed it up or slow it down to 24 or 30 frames per second so if you’re shooting in snq 120 frames per second and then you watch the clip in the camera or in your computer it’s already slowed down so it’s already in slow motion versus shooting in 1080p 120 frames per second which you need to slow down using a video editor now you can also use this feature to shoot a fairly limited time-lapse meaning that the slowest you can go is one frame per second if you want more control than Sony release the a 6100 with interval shooting built-in this lets you have full control over your time-lapse you can drag your shutter add as much motion blur as you want and get just the results you’re looking for

one thing I want to mention here is that the a 6100 does not have picture profiles like what we see on the a 64 and a 6600 this means that you don’t have options like s log 2 s log 3 and hlg which offer improved dynamic range again for an entry-level model I don’t expect the user to want to do a lot of color grading and color correcting and this is definitely a significant way Sony chose to help segment this line of cameras and finally because we have a clean HDMI out the a 6100 would be a fantastic option for live-streaming with continuous autofocus and face detection you’re gonna get super crisp video and you’ll always be in focus before I move on if you like what you’ve seen so far please let me know by giving this video a thumbs up it really helps me know what kind of content you guys like so that I can create more of it and if this is your first time here go ahead and hit the subscribe and notification button so you can stay up to date with the later gear reviews and tutorials alright

and that transitions us nicely into talking about the autofocus one of the reasons why I was hesitant to use Sony cameras in the past which included the a6000 sixty three hundred and sixty five hundred is that i didn’t always have the best experience when it comes to continuous autofocus for video for still the autofocus was good but for video continuous autofocus would hunt and was inconsistent even in good light the a7 3 was the first sony camera that i tried where i was super impressed with the autofocus system and i immediately bought it now very quickly after that I picked up the a 6400 which had arguably the best autofocus system that you can get for the price and now the a 6100 probably takes that crown uses the same four hundred and twenty five phase and contrast detection points which cover about eighty four percent of the sensor for stills the autofocus is extremely fast and this was when I was using Sony lenses third-party lenses and adapted lenses from Canon and Sigma using the Sigma MC 11 adapter now if I’m

shooting something other than portraits that I’m mostly an autofocus continuous in flexible mode and I use the center button on the back to activate the feature and then the directional pad to move the focus point around and relocate it now when I am shooting portraits the real time I autofocus is spot-on accurate and just like what we sell with the a 64 and a 6600 I still haven’t seen any other brand be able to compete with Sony for that feature now other brands like Canon Fuji and Nikon are getting really close but I think Sony still has the edge here now having said that that minor advantage might or might not make a big difference for you for how you shoot but I’m just being fair here now that means that you can just turn this feature on set your a 6102 continuous autofocus then use wide focus mode and it will automatically detect the face and then lock onto the eye and it’s so accurate and so fast that when I go back to using another camera that doesn’t have a autofocus that I have to get used to focusing and recomposing or I have to move the autofocus around and then I really notice how much more work that is and I love

being able to completely rely on that feature and it frees me up to interact with my subject and then focus on things like lighting and Composition now in addition to human eye detection we also have animal eye autofocus which I love because I take a lot of pictures of my dog and traditional zone based autofocus modes usually focus on their nose because it’s closer to the camera and that means that their eyes are out of focus and finally we also have subject tracking for photography so we can just click on any subject on the screen and a camera will track it and then continue to focus on it even as it moves through the frame moving on to video the continuous autofocus system works really well and it’s great to have accurate and consistent face tracking as soon as the face enters the frame the system just picks it right up and keeps it in focus and it’s good enough to where I don’t even really think about it

anymore I just know that it’s working we still have the same limitation that we saw on the a 64 and 66 hundred and the a 73 if you use an external recorder and you’re shooting in 4k then you’ll see that your face detection no longer works and for some reason Sony disable this feature in both 4k 24 and 4k 30 which is a little frustrating so if you want to use an external monitor you have to disable internal recording and then record externally in order to get face tracking to work now as far as the autofocus settings Sony can be a little bit confusing especially for beginners there are a lot of options and at first glance you might think that there is some overlap but once you dive deep into the settings and then you figure out which one works for the exact situation that you’re in it works incredibly well I’m gonna do a follow-up video where I discuss autofocus because I think there’s too much to cover to include it in this video and I really like the flexibility of being able to control how much of

a change the camera needs to notice before it starts to shift focus and then on top of that especially for video how fast or slow it’s going to rack focus and we also have the ability to use subject tracking for video so we can select a subject by clicking it on the screen and the a 6100 will follow it and keep track of it as it moves through the frame and even as it moves closer and farther away from the camera as far as pure functionality subject tracking is extremely fast and accurate but I do wish that I could activate it using the buttons and dials on the back in addition to the tap functionality and one thing I wanted to mention has to do with adapted lenses and I shoot a lot with Canon cameras so I have a ton of really nice Canon glass so I used my MC 11 adapter which worked beautifully for me with both cannon and cannon mounted my lenses for

stills the autofocus was extremely fast in the images were super sharp so if you have Canon or Sigma lenses and you’re a photographer 100% you should buy the MC 11 you’ll be really happy with it for video only the Sigma lenses were able to use continuous autofocus when using the MC 11 none of my l series Canon lenses would even work at all with continuous autofocus they would never find focus and I had to use manual focus now I’ve seen that you can sort of get this to work with the meta bones mark 5 but it’s pretty inconsistent and I still need to grab one and try it out and all three cameras then I’ll do a video and share my results with you now of course none of this matters if you’re just gonna buy e mount Sigma or whatever brand lenses but if you already have a bunch of lenses and you’re gonna buy this body and hope to adapt them I just wanted you to know what it can and can’t do alright so to recap my opinion about the a 6100 autofocus for both Stills and video it’s super fast and accurate alright so let’s move on to lens options for the a 60 100 because I think a lot of people forget to look at this part when they’re shopping for a camera when I test cameras I like to use a variety of lenses

at different price point to help give you a true feel of what you should expect so I used the Sony 16 250 3.5 to 5.6 which comes with Sony’s optical image stabilization now this is an inexpensive lens and it’s super small which makes this set up a perfect travel camera if you’re starting out this is the lens that you want to use when you’re getting to know your new a 6,100 it’s a medium zoom lens with a nice focal range so you can get wide shots and still zoom in for tighter framing when you want to I have a video dedicated to first lenses and I’ll link to it up in the corner and in the description and this lens is not going to compete with the Sony GM lenses my Canon L Series lenses or the Sigma art lenses but for the price it did really well now most people using the a 6100 are very likely to stick to aps-c lenses from Sony and it’s nice to see that Sony has

a really nice lineup of lenses what’s even better is that there are some really nice third-party options and probably my favorite right now is the Sigma 16 F 1.4 this is an awesome vlogging lens to pair with the a 6100 it’s an F 1.4 so you get that really great shallow depth of field and it’s excellent in low-light now unlike the kit lens there is no optical image stabilization so you’ll want to be a little more aware of how you carry the camera there are some other great options out there of course and I’ll put some links in the description to some of my favorite lenses for different types of shooting next let’s talk a little about the screen and just like on the a 6400 we have a 3-inch flip touch screen –is– LCD so when you’re shooting from the hip or anytime when you’re above the camera you can just tilt this screen up when the camera is above you like if you’re shooting over a group of people you can just tilt it down and then you can flip the screen to face the front with this multi-joint contraption like the one we saw on the a 6400 when you’re in front of the camera now it’s

not the most elegant implementation and I still prefer smoother flip screens like what we saw in the rx100 Mark 7 or on a Canon m6 mark 2 but the functionality is there now ultimately my personal favorite design is still a fully articulating touchscreen because of the versatility that offers for the different ways that I use the camera but this flip screen does offer a more compact design that I know some people prefer now other than organ AMEX you’re also gonna run into an issue when you’re shooting video and you’re trying to use an external microphone mounted to the hatch you because you’ll see that the microphone actually blocks the screen now luckily there are some cages and brackets that I use to offer alternative mounting options I use this one from uu rig which worked great for me and it allowed me to mount the microphone without obstructing the screen and then still have a fairly compact setup I’ll put links in the description to this one and some other options because I

definitely recommending picking at least one of those up if you shoot video now next let’s get to the touchscreen ish LCD and I say that because it is technically a touchscreen you can use it to set focus or to select a subject for tracking but that’s it you can’t control the menu you can to change settings and you can’t use the quick menu again I’m not sure why Sony continues to do this the screen is obviously a touchscreen it’s capable of detecting touch and it seems like menu navigation and feature selections would have been included as well now as far as the actual quality of the image on the LCD it’s pretty good and it worked well for me both indoor and in pretty bright situations if it was super bright out I just use the EVF okay moving on I also want to talk about some other features that the a 6100 has that could help you make a buying decision first I want to talk about image stabilization so just like with the

a 6400 the a 6100 does not have in body image stabilization so you’ll need to rely on lens based OSS this is one of the defining advantages of the a sixty six hundred and part of the reason for the higher price point but honestly it’s not something that I expect in a six hundred dollar camera with all the features that were already getting next I want to talk about time lapse or interval shooting and I mentioned it briefly earlier in the video but just like with the a 6400 in the a sixty six hundred the 60 100 was released with interval shooting built-in and this means that you have full control over your time lapse in terms of exposure interval and a number of shots and you simply need to process these images in post-production to get a time lapse and the next thing I want to talk about is the imaging edge app and first of all it’s super easy to connect so you just go to network you go to page one control with smartphone make sure that’s turned on then click on connection which will bring up the QR code just click on the option in the app to scan the QR code scan it and it will ask you if you want to join the connection that’s it that’s all you

need to do you can control shooting mode shutter speed aperture ISO and white balance for both photography and video which is great for Stills you can also control things like the self timer there are continuous shooting set and are also some flash options now for video you can adjust your frame rate select movie formats and you can start and stop recording there is a bit of a lag like with most of these systems but it’s definitely usable if you’re just using it for framing and it’s nice not to have to be tethered to your camera what is disappointing is that just like with all the other models you still can’t see or set your focus mode or zone so you have no idea what autofocus mode the camera is in and you can’t change or select it for what I would want to do this makes the app not that great and the only thing that I would really see myself using it for a while I’m shooting video is framing now for photography I could use it when I’m doing macro photography that way I’m manually focusing anyways and I can use the app to trigger the shutter without having to touch the camera and potentially introducing some camera shake now

one thing that was a little frustrating is that if you connect to the camera for remote control but then you want to do file transfer you have to disconnect from the camera go to a different feature in the menu reconnect to the camera and then it will work like I said in some of my other Sony videos I think they need to do a little better here look fix the autofocus part and then combine the functionalities so that we only need to connect the camera once then just make that available for all your cameras and you’re all set and of course I know not everyone is gonna use both features regardless but I’m just sharing my experience with you next I want to talk about audio functions which were very good at this price point on the left side we see a 3.5 millimeter mic input which allows us to connect an external microphone and get much better audio quality than we would get if we were using the built-in microphone so here I am recording using the built-in microphone on the a 6100 I’m sitting about three feet away from the camera in a pretty well treated room and it’s very quiet so this should give you an idea of the type of audio you should expect if you’re using the built-in microphone in a fairly well treated room and now I’m using the a 6100 with the rode videomic pro plus it’s

positioned right over here right out of frame it’s probably about a foot to a foot and a half away from me and what’s nice is that I’m letting the microphone amplify the sound I’m using the plus 20 DB settings and that way I can turn the gain on the a 6100 all the way down and hopefully you can hear the difference and it’s much cleaner audio I’ll put some links in the description to a few options that I think would pair up well with the a 6100 as well as a microphone comparison video that I did to help you choose I loved the fact that Sony is displaying the audio levels on the screen before and while you’re recording and that means that you don’t have to go into the main menu in order to check or set audio levels like you have to do with some other cameras I was also really happy to see that you can adjust the audio levels while you’re recording so you can bring up the function menu as long as you assigned audio levels as one of the features which is what I do in my custom setup and then while you’re recording you can just use the directional pad to make adjustment when you don’t have to stop recording and if you haven’t used this type

of setup for video that is something that can be frustrating and something that I really didn’t like about the Canon m50 and the m6 market you one more thing that I wanted to mention is that Sony included a built-in flash just like with the a 6400 I don’t know how loud that was but this is a feature that was removed on the a 6600 but it’s nice to have it’s not a super powerful flash but you could definitely use it as a fill flash and in mid to low light situations okay so I think the a 6100 is an outstanding option if you’re looking for a small and portable but super powerful entry-level camera there will give you great results for both photography and video as long as you don’t need picture profiles image stabilization or weather proofing this is an outstanding value for photography the 24 megapixel aps-c sensor gave me very good image quality the autofocus is incredibly fast and accurate and the low-light performance is very hard to beat for the price we have real time

autofocus for people and animals and we also have advanced subject tracking for video the autofocus is definitely improved over what we got from the a6000 and i think this is the best autofocus system that you can get for the price we have plenty of custom buttons and dials and with customizing the function menu I can set the a 6102 function exactly how I wanted to so I don’t have to go into the main menu very much for an entry-level camera I love having two dials one for aperture and one for shutter speed and I’m glad that Sony included a built-in flash I get incredibly sharp and detailed 4k it up to 30 frames per second and full HDR 1080p it up to 120 frames per second for slow-motion I like that we have a flip screen with some touch functionality the ability to use an

external microphone and being able to adjust audio levels on the fly remote functionality using the app is not ideal but we do have a built-in intervalometer which I absolutely love and the camera alone sells for right under 600 bucks and I think it’s a very good value if you’re looking to get into the Sony ecosystem with a powerful and very capable entry-level model I’ll put links in the description to the body as well as some of the lenses and accessories that I like because there are always specials and discounts and those links will automatically be updated with the lowest pricing I really hope that I was able to give you a good overview of the sony a6000 if I did please let me know by giving this video a thumbs up tweet it share it and if you haven’t yet join the community by hitting the subscribe and notification buttons you can always find me on Instagram Twitter and Facebook at Tech your talk you know what I always say buy it nice or buy twice good luck and see you soon
