Sony A6000 Review - Mirrorless Camera Monument


Speaking of the most successful mirrorless cameras representing the mirrorless camera revolution, the name Sony A6000 – A Camera Monument of the Decade cannot be ignored.

It’s not unreasonable that at the time of writing, which is 2021 – 7 years after the launch date, the Sony A6000 is still being manufactured and sold by the company. The needs of Sony fans in particular as well as the photography enthusiast community in general, always require a compact machine equipped with modern technologies, top performance, at the most affordable price. Something the A6000 has done very well since its launch, and still very few other products can take the throne for long.

Personal comments:
Holding the Sony Alpha A6000 in your hand feels like a compact, sturdy and convenient shot of all types with the flip-up LCD screen. The particularly nodding LCD screen comes in handy when filming or recording video at tricky angles. Overall image quality is impressive and smooth in all types of photos and in many different lighting situations. So if you need a compact and interchangeable lens, if you need to capture a variety of photo subjects and record HD video, then the Sony A6000 is worth considering when choosing to buy. a camera.

  • Fast focusing, a very lasting impression of the A6000. After 7 years, the focus speed is still not lower than the top lines
  • Colors are rich, except in some cases a bit cold when shooting AWB.
  • The color gamut is very deep, especially the A6000’s quality raw image RAW file format.
  • Impressive noise cancellation. The entire ISO range can be used, in severe low light, at 12800 – 25600, significant noise will appear. In fact, it’s very rare to use such high ISOs.
  • The contrast of light/dark areas of the same frame is soft. The gradation between colors and highlights varies slightly.
  • The battery life is somewhat depleted compared to current needs, if you are interested in the A6000 series, please consider buying more batteries.
